I live in Iceland and I bought these because my rome park gloves were a bit to cold but these are so warm, they are great. ***** for it. But the leather is startin to deamage a little, becouse I ride park all the day but anyway, it's getting the cold out of my hands :)
*** Order it bigger than your usual gloves! They are soo small !
The Burton AK Oven Mitten is the best glove or mitten I have ever worn. Though they do run a full size small, the warmth and comfort these provide is absolutely amazing. Absolutely worth every penny, and when purchased on sale, you can't pass it up. Highly recommended, they won't disappoint!!
You can't go wrong with these mittens
I needed the warmest whatever I could find for my hands. Im not a skier, yet at times I have to stand in 30 and 20 degree weather with wind-chills into the teens while I wait for my outdoor job assignment.
Ive never owned mittens and was hesitant about getting them, because I wanted warmth with the versatility of using my fingers. Once I start working and moving, the very warm glove comes off and I use a work glove or no glove until I have to stop again and endure the cold without moving.
After reading reviews and getting opinions from the Backcountry folks, I bought three other types of gloves on Backcountrys recent sale to compare with these AK Oven mittens: Hestra XCR, Burton AK 3L Throttle, and Dakine Cougar gloves. I didnt try Outdoor Research Alti mittens. Based on reviews, those also appear to be extremely warm. I just didnt think I would need a large gauntlet and a higher price to pay for warmth.
These mittens are extremely comfortable; are well constructed (yet none of these gloves/mittens are comparable to the superior construction of the Hestra XCRs); and they have an excellent fit. They are not true to normal sizes. I am a woman wearing a Mens medium. They are, however, true to the sizing chart on Backcountrys website. The width across my knuckles is 3 ¾ inches and that chart correctly corresponds to a Mens medium.
My Compare Gloves' results: These mittens are the warmest with the Dakine Cougars coming in a surprising second place. I kept the Dakines so I could have warmth and dexterity in a glove and at a great price. I kept the Oven mittens because I would have been foolish to not keep something this warm, especially at the sale price offered. I think the Dakines will overall handle my conditions, yet I havent had them long enough to really tell. These Oven mittens are my back up if the Dakines aren't warm enough or if Im colder conditions.
I agree with reviewer Maren with doubts if these are actually waterproof. Although there is a review that these outperform North Face mittens in waterproofing. Burtons website says: Ultra Breathable GORE-TEX® Ripstop Fabric. I suggest Backcountry change their Tech specs unless these are actually Gore Tex waterproof. This didnt affect my purchase decision, however. Ill test these to see if they are waterproof. If not, when in wet conditions, Ill wear my Dakine Cougars, which have a Gore Tex waterproof insert and very warm Primaloft insulation.
Bottom line: You cannot go wrong in buying these if you want very warm mittens. There is not one review on this site with unfavorable feedback except for the sizing issue-- which really is the buyers fault for not looking at the sizing chart before purchase.
Haven't used them skiing/boarding yet, but they're super comfortable, warm, and fit well...BUT I am a WOMAN wearing a MEN's MEDIUM. Sizing is incredibly small.
I'm not sure if they're actually waterproof though - they say GoreWindstopper ripstop, not Gortex waterproof. It does come with a packet of Nicwax leather waterproofing.
Overall, nice, stylish, warm, comfy mitts.
With combined look and flexibility these mittens are the f****** BEST !
Best Mitten Ever!
This is the type of mitten you have a revalation when you slide it on. Sleek N'Toasty. Leather palm and gore-tex what better combo. Previously owned the The North Face Nuptse Mitten and these out perform them in water proofing! they do run snug compared to other mitts that I have owned but still toasty. Great buy. Cant get any better than these. Enough said!
My 16 year old daughter learned to snow board in Breckenridge (usually very cold in December/Jan) 2 weeks ago with warm hands using these Burton AK oven mitts! To hear her tell it, she has had cold hands while skiing for years before these Burtons. She is slim, 5'8" and I was shocked that she needed a men's LARGE. I had ordered the Men's Med for her and the Men's Large for my 19 year old son. I was disappointed this was the first time I dealt with a major online company that I had to pay for return shipping for an even exchange. We will see if the Men's med I am sending back for a men's XL works for my son. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.
Never worry about cold hands again.
Like the title, spend less time worrying about cold hands and more time riding. The thing about these is they can almost be too warm for moderately cold days. The first time I went out this season it wasn't that cold and my hands were pretty sweaty afterward. When they temp is frigid though, these are perfect. I never give a thought to my hands anymore because they're never cold.
When I first got these, I was tempted to get a size bigger and get the XL, because they were a little snug for my taste. I stuck it out though and they are fine, but see if you can try them on somewhere because they seem to run smaller. And also know that you should probably wax them with the wax it comes with every time before you ride. It can get inconvenient, but it's worth it to protect the leather.
I got these and had to send them back.. I would recommend ordering a size larger than you normally do.. I'm still waiting to see if they actually work
Do the finger dividers help keep your hands...
Do the finger dividers help keep your hands warm? It seems like that would make it just like a glove?
The difference between a glove and this mitten, a glove allows air between the fingers, a mitten does not (even if it has finger dividers.) Thus, by the laws of physics, since there is no cold temperature present in between the fingers of a mitten, the dividers can not make your fingers cold.The reality is that they help keep your fingers warm by removing dead air pockets in the mitten. These dead air pockets can get pretty cold because they have good exposure to the outside of the mitten and little exposure to your fingers. That's why you should always get the smallest size glove/mitten that will fit your hand.
I have bad circulation and my hands get really cold. These gloves are perfect. They keep my hands warm, yet they are still very flexible. I am really happy with this purchase.
WritDo you need a liner with these? I am...
WritDo you need a liner with these? I am looking for the shell and liner system, would this replace both?
You shouldn't need to wear liners underneath these-I have a set of them and I can only wear them when it's in the single digits Fahrenheit or below, because they're so warm. Granted, my hands don't get cold too easily, but if you're looking for the warmest mitt possible, this is definitely a great option.
Is this the hottest mitten? (I am female...
Is this the hottest mitten? (I am female and need the best and the hottest mitten you have.)
It's hard to say which one is absolutely the hottest, but these are some of the warmest you'll find. But if you're on the quest for perfection, you might also want to look at the Outdoor Research Alti mitts, Hestra XCR's, there are a good amount of absurdly warm mittens on here.
