The Siberian hitch is a hitch knot used to attach a rope to an object. It is a type of slipped figure-eight noose. The hitch is known for having a tying method suitable even whilst wearing heavy gloves or mittens in cold climates. As a slipped knot it can be released simply by pulling the working end of the rope.
Used as a quick release knot in cold climates because it can be tied with gloves on.
Moderately secure. As all quick release knots it should not be used for critical applications.
