Staff Picks: Cody discusses the Sturmfists by 45NRTH
One of the keys to having a great time outside during the winter season is staying comfortable in all types of winter weather. For me, my hands are one of the hardest parts of my body to keep warm. Welcome the Sturmfist 5 by 45NRTH (based in the Twin Cities). The Strumfist 5 does an outstanding job of letting me focus on the fun, not the numb. There are many reasons why the Sturmfist is an instrumental piece of the comfort puzzle. The wool liner does its business keeping hands warm and regulated, the windstopping and waterproof backing keeps the cold and wet out where it belongs, the durable goat leather palm ensures these gloves will be in the quiver for many years, and the long wrist keeps the jacket to glove connection covered while on the move. All while providing good grip and dexterity for all types of outdoor winter activities. The Sturmfist 5 is rated for temperatures from 15-35 degrees so when it’s not quite time to slap the pogies on your fatbike or when your knit mittens aren’t keeping your hands warm enough during your cat walking excursions get some 45NRTH Sturmfist 5’s for your meat mitts and keep the cold out, I did. --Cody
