/ Outdoor mitts
Buffalo is basically a pertex that covers a fleacey lining (this is very basic explanation it works and I am not knocking it, but saying that I have never used it)
Dachstein's are an type of Austrian close knitted mit which are very effective. (make sure if you buy the Dachsteins far to big as they shrink alot)
Dachsteins are warm
I can't comment on buffalo mits
I can't comment on Dachstein's as I've never worn them.
As an old fart who has both types of glove, I prefer Buffalo:) Both are excellent, but Buffalo don't restrict your ability to use your hands tying knots, etc. Also as mentioned above they are less bulky.
Dachsteins are much harder wearing and stick to the rock. They also look more retro.
Buffalo feel great, pertex too feeble to climb with. They dry much faster.
The first time my girlfriend wore Buffalo mitts on a winter walk, she complained that it felt like cheating because her hands were so warm!
£23.50 in Joe Brown's in Capel Curig I think.
Very tempting as mine blew away many years ago!
Managed to resist though.
