If you haven't heard of GORE-TEX by now, you've probably been living under a rock. And that would make sense, because living under a rock is probably the only place where you wouldn't need the durable waterproof and windproof protection that GORE-TEX fabrics offer. So when you're ready to venture out from under your rock, arm yourself with the comfortable protection of GORE-TEX.
PrimaLoft was originally developed to serve as a water resistant, synthetic alternative to goose down for the U.S. Army. Since then PrimaLoft has been a leader in insulation and fabric technologies in the outdoor industry, and is used by the top outerwear and clothing brands to craft pieces that offer warmth without bulky weight, packablity, and both water resistance and breathability for all your outdoor adventures.

Humongously warmThese things are crazy warm. They're also crazy big. Like boxing glove big. I bought these along with the Outdoor Research Alti Mitts and am keeping those instead since they're rated for the same temperature (-20F to -40) but fit like a regular mitt. I wanted these for sitting around at a campsite and can't imagine how they wouldn't be warmer than the Alti's (based on volume and fill type) but I figure I'd have to take them off so often that it wouldn't matter. The liners on the Alti are also thinner and more dexterous, even though they're a mitt vs the BD Absolute lobster liner.

These are incredibly warmThese are incredibly warm! One thing to note is that you will have pretty much no dexterity, although pretty much nothing that is this warm will have a lot of dexterity.
