We've been protecting the hands of NASA, the U.S. Military, NATO, and many more from extreme cold for decades. Now it's your turn.

Warmth and Dexterity

The Mainers waterproof winter mitts strike the perfect balance of warmth, dexterity, and durability. It’s simply the best winter gloves you can buy, whether you're cutting through powder or digging your car out of the driveway.

Extreme Protection

By sheltering all four fingers in the same waterproof, heavily insulated space, Mainers winter mittens keep you warm in the harshest conditions. The flexible materials and anatomically-optimized construction provide a freedom of movement other snow mittens can’t touch.

Mainers Extreme Cold Winter Mitt

Built to go wherever winter takes you.

  • Durable and Tough

    Lightweight and flexible yet built to take a beating, these waterproof gloves and mitts can handle the harshest winters.

  • Double Waterproofing

    Combining a durable water repellent outer layer with a waterproof and breathable interior membrane ensures that the insulation inside works, no matter how wet your environment.

  • Warm, Dry, and Comfortable

    A moisture-wicking interior helps eliminate sweat build-up that can leave you feeling cold and clammy.

  • Proven Quality

    Our team has been building extreme cold protection for more than 40 years. With customers like NASA, the U.S. Military, NATO, and more, perfection is non-negotiable.

  • Millions of Stitches (and Counting)

    We've been in business since 1980, and many of our employees were with us at the very beginning. That translates to millions of stitches, hundreds of thousands of cuts, hundreds of industry-leading improvements, and countless satisfied customers. When it comes to providing protection from extreme cold, our expertise is world class.

  • Invested in Maine

    We handcraft our gloves and mitts here in Trenton, Maine. It’s a community we're committed to building something special while creating local jobs. It’s also a place that’s taught us little something about how harsh winter can be.

  • Domestically Sourced

    We've worked hard to source 99% of the parts for both the Mainers Gloves and Mitts here in the U.S. This keeps our supply chain close at hand while helping ensure jobs for our country.

Dependable Materials

From the GORE-TEX® liner to the fleece and even the pulls, we source the very best materials to make Mainers. That's why we're pleased to share that every pair of Mainers comes complete with pulls from fellow Maine company Sterling Rope. Sterling is a legendary rope manufacturer whom tens of thousands of climbers, arborists, and rescue professionals around the world trust to keep them safe every day. We're proud to feature them in our products.

What Do Real People Think of Mainers?

We sent a few pairs to winter sports lovers. Read what they had to say.

  • Ditch the Liner

    We sent Maine-based nature photographer Tyler Kimbar a pre-production pair of Mainers gloves and asked for his honest feedback.

  • Stay Outside Longer

    Colorado-based hiker Daniel Flanagan tested a pair of Mainers in the harshest conditions he can find in mid-November.

  • Quality You Can Feel

    We love Pine & Water because they appreciate life in New England as much as we do.
