What kind of mittens is Les Stroud wearing? Is there a name for them? I'm interested to find out about them and what it costs for a pair. mittens

  • my guess would be sealskin, locally made. You see the leather part and the fur is inside. – Kate Gregory May 10 '18 at 14:27
  • @KateGregory - Yeah, sealskin makes sense. I wonder if there's a particular name used for mittens like this? Perhaps they just go by "mittens." :) – Don Branson May 10 '18 at 16:45

    "Gauntlet extreme-cold mittens" is the style of mitten. They're popular in Canada, It's common to make them out of sheepskin. Couldn't tell you what his are made out of though. – ShemSeger May 11 '18 at 19:10
  • @ShemSeger - Most excellent! Thank you. And...be careful ice climbing. You know we all worry about you. – Don Branson May 11 '18 at 19:14
