Rab's Astral Mitts are Rab's extreme mountaineering and arctic expedition mitts. They are large in form as the amount of Primaloft insulation used in them is substantial, this is dispersed over the back of the hand. The mitts are also lined with a soft micro-fleece material.
They are roomy enough to take a fleece liner glove, if you wanted to wear a primaloft or larger synthetic insulation glove inside you may want to consider sizing up for this.
The leather palm, fingers and thumb uses very high-quality Pittards leather that will last a lifetime.
