Women's Ski Mittens
Free the Powder makes the best ski mittens for women!
A 1998 University of Utah study found that women tend to have slightly higher core temperatures than men (97.8 degrees F vs. 97.4), but their hands are colder. Researchers said women’s mean hand temperature was 87.2 degrees, compared with 90.0 degrees for the men. Your wife, girlfriend, sister, daughter and mother weren't just complaining for nothing!
Women's-specific ski gloves are generally not made with more insulation, so lots of women go with mittens, which are warmer for most people.
Our mittens are very warm. Free the Powder uses 300+ grams of dense insulation in our ski mittens. The insulation that we use is unique: it is designed and tested to breathe exceptionally well, so you don't fall prey to the worst cause of cold hands -clammy/sweaty hands. To that end, we also employ a unique sizing strategy for women -we don't make narrow, women's-specific models, (like most ski glove companies) but offer unisex sizing on all models. That slight extra space is more important for women than men.
I should also mention that our company was founded by a person whose primary goal was to solve his lifetime problem of cold hands from poor circulation. Learn more about our insulation strategies.
