Ragged Mountain Equipment
The Alpine Contour Shell is at the head of our mitten shell fleet. It is a full-coverage shell, with a high gauntlet and a waterproof/breathable back. This shell features contoured side panels for a natural unhindered fit, improved range of motion, and comfort. We added a closed-cell foam knuckle-pad inside (popular with snowboarders, ice climbers, and dockworkers) and covered the palm and thumb with Goodgrip for better grab on tools and ropes. Tough, coated 500 Cordura® protects the fingertips, side panels and wrist. For closing everything up tight, there's a one-handed cordlock cinch system that keeps snow from entering the gauntlet. Another cinch strap at the wrist snugs up the Alpine Contour against your liner to keep a lower profile when using tools and ascenders. Loop-tape inside mates with the hook-tape on our Tuckermitts (shown in photo, sold separately) to keep the layering system working as a unit. Apply SeamGrip® to the stitching if you're operating in especially wet environments, but count on the Alpine Contour Shell to fend off harsh winter conditions and protect your insulating liners from the snow.
