Arc'teryx Fission Gore-Tex Mitten

Someone once said, "If you're cold, you're not wearing the right gear." Hearing that, Arcteryx combined the waterproof Gore-Tex technology with not one...not two...but three different types of insulation to make the Fission Mitten.Gore-Tex XCR technology helps to prevent moisture from creeping through when the snow is waist deep while still maintaining a high level of breathability so you can leave them on while earning your turns by sidestepping to the very top. The outer top shell stretches with your hand's dexterity so you won't have to take your gloves off to unzip your pack or tighten your boots, but is durable enough to withstand brushes trees that jump up out of nowhere and into your line. Additionally, the palm and fingers are reinforced with rugged leather to help keep your poles in your hands without slipping.The three varieties of PrimaLoft insulation were strategically mapped and placed throughout the Fission Mitten to provide optimal warmth without sacrificing dexterity. Designers doubled up insulation on the back of the hand, where your hand is most exposed to the elements. Over the fingers and palms, where dexterity and grip is crucial, Arc'teryx used a low profile Grip Control insulation that stays warm when compressed and helps to reduce bulk and packing out over time.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
