ASTIS’ PIKE LEATHER MITTENS: Displaying the Colorado state flag, these leather mittens are named for American Army Officer and explorer Zebulon Pike. As a U.S. Captain in 1806–1807, he led the Pike Expedition to explore and document the southern portion of the Louisiana Purchase, during which he recorded the discovery of what later was called Pikes Peak. Astis’ suede leather mittens are hand-sewn with hand-stitched beadwork on the gauntlet and lined with Polartec Thermal Pro High Loft insulation. Working directly with a U.S. tannery, Astis injects the suede with silicon during the tanning process for additional waterproofing. The mittens are extremely durable while retaining great dexterity. The length and cut of the mittens allows for a jacket to slide fully inside without bunching up, providing a close fit that protects the wrists and hands from snow, even on the heaviest of powder days. $195; at astis.com
