Great Mitts

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I normally wear my Hestra Heli's on the hill unless it is below 10 deg F. I have worn these mitts several times in cold temps down to -10 deg F., and have not had cold hands while skiing. I tend to pull my fingers into my palm while riding up the lift to warm them up, but did not feel like my hands were really cold.


  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

There are hands down the best mitts I have ever used. From South America to Alaska I rock these on the regular. Finers never get cold while avoiding overheating. Bomber leather construction keeps everything under control when a normal glove would fail.


I agree with Leo's assessment of the Virago mitts.

I love them. The leather exterior has held up to everything I have thrown at it so far. From snowboarding to wearing around the town no those days were it's approaching <=0 degrees.

My hands are always cold. Maybe it's poor circulation but I know on those days were it's too cold to even grip my steering wheel in the morning I grab my BD Virago mittens and I can make it to work comfortably.

Even in mitten form I feel like they provide me with great articulation. I'm able to grab things, open doors, fumble with my keys, etc.

If you want a quality mitten that keeps your hands warm and dry, look no further.

For ~$50 US how can you beat it?
