The worst day out hunting may be better than the best day stuck behind your desk, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t “Better the Hunt” with some extra comfort in the form of an Insulated Shotgun Mitt. Here’s what’s interesting about the mitt: It’s a mitten for your hand that you mount on the gun. Here’s how that can make that “worst day” out hunting even better.

If you’ve spent any time hunting with your scattergun in cold weather, you know just how quickly that cold steel barrel siphons the warmth from your hands. If you’re a woman, that probably happens even more quickly for you than it does your male hunting buddies. And cold hands are hands that don’t respond well to your brain’s commands … which is absolutely the last thing you want in the field. Until now, we’ve had to rely on gloves, mitts and glo-mitts to try and keep our fingers functional in freezing weather.

The problem with gloves and mitts is that they are a trade-off between warmth and agility. The warmer your hand protection, the less precise your movements will be. For most of us, that means taking them on and off, folding them back over our knuckles or fumbling to close them. But when you mount the mitt on your gun, as Better the Hunt’s Insulated Shotgun Mitt allows you to do, all of that disappears. This innovative product gives shotgun hunters an exciting and effective option for keeping their hands nice and comfortable on those long, cold, late season hunts.

The unique design of this mitt means you can install it easily on any shotgun. You simply slide your bare hand into the mitt. The unique attachment system enables you to maintain a firm grip on your firearm without fumbling On the bitterest days, you can even activate a hand warmer and place in the convenient pocket. $49.95; BettertheHunt.com
