Two weeks ago Andy from Trash Bags dropped these mittens on me to test out. They are his new Picker model and they have just been made available to the public as of yesterday.
Check it out.
topside is Cordura with a stretch panel over the knuckles for freedom of movement (the orange strip), and reflective accents
bottoms are black cordura with a terry cloth snot wiper (not well shown) on the thumb
The mittens come with handmade fleece liners made from military surplus fleece. The removable liner allows the owner to use the mittens through a much larger temperature range and make substitutions for personal preference. I for example have been using them with a liner glove.

I haven't been using them much due to the warm temperatures, but it looks like we're back to the deep freeze routine so expect a full report down the line.
The gloves retail for $75 and are handmade in MPLS.
