Hi folks

I'm looking for new mitts which must have a loop at the top to connect to a crab so they can hang off my harness with the opening pointing downward.

Cheers.

Morning Gary,

I would strongly recommend Outdoor Designs Summit Inferno Mitts. You can clip them at the wrist adjusters strap or Erick even sewed a loop at the top, so they can hang in the manner you suggest.

I have seen gloves (BD) with hang loops on the fore finger but never mitts.

and at a serious step up in warmth(and price)the BD Absolute Mitts do as well

If it is to keep the snow out, I stuff one glove inside the other cuff first, then tighten the drawcord so the stuffed glove pokes out, blocking snow from getting in. You then clip anywhere you like.

It would seem the newer Summit Infernos have a clip in loop at finger tips, mines didn't.

I stand to be corrected!
