HOWL - WHITELINES - BEST MITTS OF 2017/18
HOWL X VANS
'The Howl x Vans snowboard mitt is part of a larger collaboration between the two companies, which also includes a fresh take on the Hi-Standard boot. This model sits nicely amongst the rest of the Howl line, which tends to focus on more versatile fare as opposed to uber-warm mitts that are only suitable for extreme cold. If you’re looking for something suitable for the vast majority of winter days, this is it.'
HOWL JOE SEXTON MITT
'Not one for vegans, Joe Sexton’s pro model HOWL mitts come with tough as nails goat leather throughout as well as normal bovine suede highlights like at the back of the finger tips.
Blending natural protection with man made materials gives them a Hipora liner with a 10k/5k waterproofing and breathability rating, and then the chunky ribbing at the cuff performs as well as it looks – there won’t be much heat lost there.
They get Sexton’s 1817 brand seal of approval as well, so these will go down well with park rats and tow-rope enthusiasts alike, great as they feel like they’ll be able to put up with a beating.'
