A long, warm mitt that's unfazed by the snow, wet, or cold.
Marmot made the Big Mountain Mitt for skiers and mountain athletes who thrive in the deepest, wettest, and coldest parts of winter. Insulated for warmth and outfitted with waterproof breathable fabric and leather reinforcements, this gauntlet-style mitt offers ultimate protection for your fingers.
- MemBrain 2L fabric blocks wetness, breathes, and is highly durable
- Waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Mitt insert further improves the protection of this mitt by keeping your hand dry in wet weather and by allowing sweaty moisture to escape from within
- Washable leather reinforcement increases overall durability
- PrimaLoft One synthetic insulation is lightweight, non-bulky, and plenty warm
- DriClime lining wicks moisture away from the surface of your skin
- Falcon grip gives you a secure hold on your poles, shovel, or ice tool
- Nose wipe helps when you don't want to stop for a tissue
- Adjustable wrist strap and drawcord on the gauntlet help tighten the mitt while the safety leash comes in handy when you need to take the mitts off

For some reason I thought these mitts have a removable liner. I've got a lot of room in the open finger area, but they fit properly around my knuckle/hand circumference. Would you recommend I wear a light liner with these gloves? Or does that defeat the purpose of a mitt? I'm not going to be in weather much colder than -10F or so. Most of the time I'll be hiking, riding, snow shoeing or XC skiing - so high aerobic activities. Thanks.
The roominess and the ability of your fingers to comingle definitely help keep you warm. That being said on really cold days I wear thin merino liners for some added moisture management and warmth.
Thanks for the response. I appreciate it.
Not sure what 4jrp is talking about..These mittens are light weight and pretty thin...that being said, they are definitely very warm. Only on very cold days do my hands get cold, and I am not the best in cold weather. They have a wrist strap so you don't have to worry about dropping them off the lift and the drawcord is the best I have ever used. Getting them on and tightened and then off again is super easy. Great gloves to keep your hands warm on cold days!
NOT as WARM as I expected

A few years ago I purchased a pair of DOWN FILLED Marmot Mits for cold weather downhill skiing. They were excellent. I expected my new Big Mountain Mitts to be equally as warm. They aren't. Quality appears to be good but they aren't nearly as warm as my old down filled mitts. I'm disappointed in them.
Do these mittens have a zip or velcro...
Do these mittens have a zip or velcro compartment over the fingers to slip in hand warmer packets?
They do not... but these are the first pair of mittens that didn't leave my fingers frozen by lunch time.
