When you need to keep your hands warm in the cold, look no further than the Stronghold Mittens. Built using our ultralight fabrics and continuous filament Climashield APEX synthetic insulation, Stronghold Mittens boast packable warmth and great all-weather performance. It’s also easy to wash your synthetic mittens of dirt, sweat, and oil.

The mitten palm is constructed with durable 70D ripstop nylon, and the outer fabric is ultralight 20D ripstop nylon with a water repellent finish. The gauntlet cuff features a thin shock cord and cordlock to secure the Stronghold Mittens on your hands and lock out cold wind and snow. When you’re not using them, the Stronghold Mittens pack down small to fit just about anywhere in your pack.

  • If using the 6oz. APEX, you may want to size up to compensate for the increased insulation.

Important Note: Custom orders cannot be changed after order placement. Returned custom orders (or custom orders cancelled after production has started) will incur a 20% restocking fee. No exceptions.

"These are very comfortable and warm. They're anatomically clever, fitting the curvature of the hand and fingers, and particularly the thumb. I like the way there's enough filling at the ends of the fingers and thumb, so that there isn't a cold spot there. They pack down very small." - Janet

Very happy with these mitts

First, these are not "work mittens." I wouldn't wear them stacking firewood, working on heavy equipment or any other rough-use activity. That being said, for their intended purpose, they have served me very well. They are warm and super packable. I wear them walking to work and also pack them as a back-up on biking and camping trips in case the temperature drops or I get my gloves wet. I keep them on my fat bike when I ride in the winter. I usually wear light gloves under my pogies, but when my hands come out of the pogies I have these handy. I haven't left home without them since I bought them. If I lost them, I would re-purchase immediately.

Difficult to know the right size

I own a pair of the non-flip tops, and ordered these too because I love the originals. I ordered a medium based on the measuring instructions on this page. My measurement was just short of seven inches, so I ordered the small. Alas, they were too small. I gave them to my daughter as a present, and ordered the medium. Otherwise, this is a fine product and very carefully made.
