Our new leather ski mitten is the answer to February at 3,000 ft. The cold has nothing on these mitts with a sewn-in recycled polyester liner and all of our classic features. Our Jefflo leather mittens are rugged as a buck, warm as a polar bear, and designed for hard use - this mitt can go up, down and around the mountain. Named after two prominent, visionary members of our Randolph, Vermont community who passed away too early, we honor their legacy and values with these all-terrain mitts.

The JEFFLO Mitt takes its name from two adventurers who embodied a love of the outdoors and their community: Jeff and Flo Tolbert.

Braving the Vermont winter air with determination and joy, Jeff could be seen nearly every day on the slopes, carving his mark on the Green Mountains as the Olympian he was, gladly sharing the lift seat with others who shared his passion for the outdoors. Flo would bundle up in her coziest winter chic as the car warmed up in the driveway to take her to teaching, her glory days of paragliding a ready memory to be told in stories for similarly intrepid students. Let all of us hope to live life so boldly as Jeff and Flo did.

Wait, Goat Leather?

All of our gloves are primarily made of goat leather (the entire body, palm, thumb, gunn fingers, and back of hand) because it performs the best. Soft, supple and extremely durable. Furthermore, it keeps those attributes after years of wear and many wet/dry cycles. The reason the goat drys soft and supple is because of the inherent natural oils in the goat skin (and subsequent leather) also known as lanolin. Cowhide doesn't have these natural oils, so when it gets wet and then dry the leather become stiff, dry and brittle, thus making it wear out faster and not be form fitting to the hand.
