686 Fortune Mitt

686's fortune mitt is definitely eye catching in store.

You might not think so at first glance but slip your hand inside and you'll immediately notice the super soft Sherpa fleece cuff lining and equally as soft micro tricot lining (in normal words, a unique zigzag weave fabric textured on one side and smooth on the other for a soft but sturdy feel). While feeling soft is nice, all the technology behind this mitt is what'll keep you warm and cozy on those long days playing outside. With infiLOFT® 120g Insulation your hand's are sure to be toasty but they won't sweat as long as the infiDry® Waterproof/Breathable Glove Insert is working it's magic, which will also be keeping you dry throughout those slush days with it's 10K Fabric + DWR finishing.
