Porta Brace Polar Mitten keeps Mini-DV camera warm down to -50 degrees F
Air activated warmers placed inside the case, maintain interior temperatures, to keep battery, recorder, lens and hands warm.
Porta Brace's Polar Mitten, designed for the Mini-DV camera, is a smaller version of the Polar Bear case.
The thickly padded case makes use of a high loft insulation material. The interior is lined with Mylar fabric to reflect heat back into the camera chamber. Air activated warmers placed inside the case, maintain interior temperatures, to keep battery, recorder, lens and hands warm. The Polar Mitten has been tested at -50 degrees Fahrenheit.
One hand opening at the lens is enclosed with fleece cuff for a warm access. Suede leather handles make it comfortable to carry. A lens hood is stored on the case to protect the lens in transport; it also prevents condensation from forming when bringing Polar Mitten in from the cold. The Polar Mitten comes with four heat packs.
