These mittens are TOO warm!

I just got back from exploring the balds of Roan Mountain, TN this past weekend where the temperatures dipped below -15C, and with the wind-chill at 6200 feet who knows how cold it was.. Like others have written, all I can say is that this is the first pair of gloves I've ever had to take OFF because they are too WARM.

The most amazing thing about these gloves is that your hands warm up from freezing cold to feeling like an oven within mere SECONDS of them being in the glove. Even if you have managed to get some snow inside the glove, say from being in a winter storm on a bald, it melts almost before you notice it's there.

The sizing guide gave me a perfect fit. Wrist bands are great while hiking to be able to take them off. One thing I noticed the first time I tried them driving is that the wrist guards hang low enough to potentially get around on the E brake, so just a word of caution.

I think these will be better suited for skiing than hiking just because they are too warm when doing any kind of activity.

Hats off to Hestra for a great product, I will definitely be buying from them next time!
