Extremities' Hot Bags are a superlight, windproof and warm liner or top mitt. Using Primaloft insulation for maximum warmth wihtout weight or bulk, the Hot Bags compress down to a small pack size. They can be used as a liner mitt with Tuff Bags GTX or Top bags. They can even be used as a warm booster layer over the top of other glove systems.
Extremities says: These Hot Bags are gloriously warm packable and close fitting duvets for hands. They are ideal mitts for anyone looking for a softer windproof mitt that can be stuffed in to pockets when not in use. They have a DWR finish for water repellency but in really wet weather we recommend teaming them with a waterproof over mitt such as the Extremities Guide Tuff Bags.
If it is very cold they are great as a booster mitt worn over the top of other glove systems. To make sure they fit snuggly and keep out the draughts there is an adjustable velcro wrist strap and drawcord at the top both which can be adjusted quickly with one hand.
They are amazingly light and the Primaloft synthetic insulation keeps hands warm but also allows them to pack down small to easily fit in to your pocket.
Primaloft uses a unique microfibre structure which is specially treated to create a core with similar physical and thermal properties to down meaning you will be well insulated against the cold. It's compressible, breathable and has excellent water repellency so you remain dry, warm and comfortable even under the most extreme conditions.
Primaloft delivers high end insulation for a very low weight and is extremely packable. Buy these as part of a system which starts with a liner glove, add these when the mercury takes a tumble and add Extremities Top Bags when it begins to rain!
A lightweight but flexible system for winter walking.
