Description

For those without furry paws.

Face it bro; you’re not invulnerable to cold fingers. You’re smart, so you choose to wear the Burton Men’s AK Oven Mitten on those days when it’s not safe to whip it out for a leak break in the trees. The low-profile design makes sliding the cuff of your jacket over the mitten easier than unzipping your fly.

  • Ultra-breathable Gore-Tex ripstop fabric keeps digits dry
  • Triple goose down fill and PrimaLoft insulation provide epic warmth
  • Hydrofil wicking, fixed-fleece, finger mitt lining keeps each finger individually wrapped like Twinkies in a box
  • Gnar Guard leather palm for grabs or grabbing a cold one
  • Super ergonomic construction promotes good dexterity for adjusting your gear

Warmest gloves ever

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have Raynaud's Disease which means that my hands and fingers are always cold and get numb really fast. I have tried several gloves and these were the only ones that kept my hands/fingers warm. I use this with "first layer" gloves underneath but I know some people find it warm enough to use the ak oven mitten alone.

Awesome

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

You will enjoy warm, dry hands in these mitts. I've had mine about 6 years. I wax the leather yearly. Only the nose wipe area on the thumb has disintegrated, but it's to be expected and doesn't affect performance. I bought my girl a pair of these for those cold days and she loves them. Don't waste your time with that $70-80 dollar junk that just doesn't cut it when its cold. For another few bucks you have something that works. These will last you for years.

Unanswered Question

Are those of you who have experienced...

Posted on

Are those of you who have experienced ripped seems predominantly skiers? I'm a snowboarder with oven mitts, and they've held up just fine. There are some nicks in the palm's leather, mostly on my right hand, but carrying a snowboard does that to every glove. I'm asking because I want to get a pair for my mom, who skis.

My go to mitts -

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

So far i've used them in morning temps of - 5 below and they worked very well, later in the day temps were up to 15 F, again they kept my hands toasty and dry.
Much to my surprise they didn't overheat my hands on the days when the afternoon temps climbed to the upper 20's.

All i can say is that Primaloft and Down is a good mix!

P.s., to date the leather palm is holding up just fine, looks as good as new, then again i'm not grabbing a snowboard or tricking in the trauma park.

Goose Down

Lets combine Triple Goose Down, Primaloft , some windstopper and make something really special for your fingers ! The oven mitt is insane and goes down to an xs for the ladies out there. This is a must have for below zero days and the riders who don?t know what lift lines are and find first tracks in the back country.

Life Changing

I've never been able to keep my hands warm enough until now - game changer on cold days

Freak of nature

I swear these things generate their own heat. Warmest Mittens I've ever owned- and super comfortable too! I don't even use them that much because they're really only needed on the coldest of days.... but boy, when you need them there's nothing better. I've had these out a couple times (~10) and haven't had any problems with durability.

So far so good

These mitts have kept my hands warm. I have not had any issues with the leather peeling off as some users have experienced. Time will tell, but during some really cold weather - my hands were fine and usually are really cold with my other North Face Gloves.

Warm

They are mittens and they are extremely warm. Not much else to say.

Don't waste your money

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought two pairs of these mitts. One pair for me, the other for my wife. After one outting at the hill both pairs had holes in them all around the seams. There was even a hole in the palm of my wife's pair. I called Burton to see about a possible warranty, and they said it was not covered under warranty. Well there's $260 down the drain. I will never buy a Burton product again, and suggest you look elsewhere for warm mitts. I have a pair of Black Diamonds now and they are fantastic. Do yourself a favor, don't waste your time with these mitts.

Responded on

Please tell me why burton said this problem is not covered by warrtany? ...and on the phone? normally they would say, "send it in and well look at it.""After one outing"? Does that mean one day of use on the gloves or after 400 days? I get about 300 days out of a pair of AK gloves, thats about 3 years. Im sorry I just don't get it. Please tell more. I'd like to see pics please. I only ask because I'm thinking about buying these. Thanks

Responded on

Oh, now I see the other pics. Ya... those look like problems. The leather in the review pics look pretty dry. I use nikwax twice a year and my AK leather palms stay beautiful.

Responded on

I spoke to them on the phone, and they said, "you can try and send them in, but we will not cover them". The person in customer service said they never cover tears. Terrible customer service and product support. And yes, they had holes in them after ONE day. You can get far nicer, more durable gloves for a lot less.

Oven warm and fresh

Couldn't say it better; Windproof sub-zero sleeping bag tailored perfectly for your hands. Primaloft , Windstopper and triple goose down bring on the backcountry

durability sucks

Just after one use leather on the mitts started to get off.
After 3rd use seam on a thumb (right hand) separated.
Yes, they are warm. But only for a couple of uses, because just after them mitts for $130 will be dead.
very bad.

Burton hasn't published my review on their site.

Finally, warm hands

I used the AK Oven Mitts for two days at Killington, VT. First day was about 30 degrees and the second day 18 degrees (not factoring windchill which was whipping the two days). I am not a heat producer and get cold pretty easily. After reading about all the rave reviews on the Hestra Heli Mitts, I gave those a try but they didn't do the trick even when I used hand warmers. So with the great service and recommendation from the BC folks, I got these mitts and can finally feel my fingers.

My hand measurement (width) is a 3.25 so I decided to get the mediums just to have a little more room. They fit very well even with the added space, however, when I included a liner, it ended up being a little snug. If you decide to wear a liner (which I don't think you will need) you might want to size up but if you size up and end up not using a liner then there might be too much room. Also, if your jacket has wrist-gaiters, it might be a little annoying if the gaiters aren't skin tight because it might bunch up since these are under-cuff mitts. I didn't try to fit the gaiters in the mitt, I just pushed the gaiters up into my sleeves which made taking on and off the mitts without trouble.

The mitt seem to be very solid and very warm. With all the insulation packed into it, there wasn't a huge lack of dexterity (well as much as you can get with a mitt anyways). I was a little hesitant about the individual finger slots but to my surprise didn't affect the warmth. The only time my fingers got remotely chilled was when a tiny bit of snow got into the mitt because I took them off and snow was blowing. My hands warmed up quick whenever I had to take them off and on. I wouldn't hesitate to get these again if anything happens to my current pair. Happy with my purchase and great service.

I got these last week and finally got to used them yesterday. I must say, these things are WARM!!! I was out in 18 deg is weather with a little windchill and my hands were on fire... they were so hot I was sweating non-stop... so if you live in subzero temp areas and you need a pair of warm mits, STOP LOOKING CUZ THESE ARE IT!!!!
