Give’r has the perfect gloves to get you through the cold. The Frontier Mittens are all-leather exterior gloves made with premium cowhide, and are 100 percent water-proof. With proper care, they can last for years on end.


Frontier Mittens are made with a four-layer construction of insulation, heat shield backing, waterproof membrane, and cowhide. Each pair is tested to withstand burning logs, dry ice and boiling water, so you know they can hold up in the most extreme climates. The premium cow leather gives the mittens a functional temperature range between -40 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit. A fleece interior flicks moisture away to help keep your hand dry, while a reflective membrane on the back keeps heat locked in while blocking out wind.


The mittens also mold to your hand for a perfect fit. Over time your fingers and hand gradually shape the interior so it forms the most comfortable fit possible. They’re also breathable, so you won’t overheat. Since they’re made with a leather exterior, they also offer a superior grip.


As an added bonus Give’r will bake and hand-wax your mittens to add longevity and enhance the weatherproofing for only $10. The Frontier Mittens are set to retail for just $118 with first shipments expected to begin March 2020. Check out the website for more information on features and ways to order.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
