Extremities' Top Bags Waterproof Overmitts are a super-lightweight pair of overmitts that give great weather protection for such a low weight. Wear these over your warm, low-bulk gloves for a versatile cold/bad weather system. They are fully waterproof and have good breathability properties leaving your hands dry and comfortable while out on the trail. They have an incredibly small pack size and are great for stuffing in your pack and forgetting about until the weather turns.
Top Bags are designed to be worn over the top of your existing gloves or mitts to avoid getting wet! They`re waterproof yet still breathable.
These over-mitts have been designed to be lightweight (just 48g!) and pack down really small. So you won`t know you have them in your rucksack until you need them.
Featuring wrist straps to keep the mitts in place which can be adjusted one-handed and cuff cord adjustments to prevent water / snow getting inside.
Can be used as a top layer over the Hot bags Windy convertible mitt and other gloves in the extremities range.
Brilliant idea for backpackers. We were just getting used to the Extremities Tuff Bags as a lightweight alternative to waterproof gloves when Extremities produced this lighter version. Its not Goretex, its their own in house waterproof and breathable fabric. Don`t expect Goretex breathability, but they are still waterproof so will keep your liner gloves or mitts perfectly dry on a wet dank day.
Extremities do not recommend using these with walking poles. Our guess is they`d shred the fabric, so its Tuff Bags if you need them to be tough and Top Bags if you need the lightest waterproof overmitts around.
