Our buddy James Fox of 10engines turned us on to Astis and their leather gloves this winter (keep an eye on his spot if you like hearing about cool unique brands). Each pair of Astis gloves and mittens are handcrafted in the USA with natural materials. They work directly with a tannery to develop a suede leather that is injected with silicon during the tanning process to improve its natural waterproofing. Enhanced leather and a dry-wicking Polartec® Thermal Pro® High Loft lining means your digits stay nice and toasty while you're out there in the colder temps. What really sold us, beyond the durability of the gloves, was the intricate Cree-inspired beadwork.
