does this mitten have a spot for a heat pack?
There does not appear to be any insert pocket on these.

extremely warm, but...
So i've got kind of short, stubby fingers, so i bought the medium.
the quality is amazing. Leather AND gore-tex? for 100 bucks? definitely buy these mitts, but TRY THEM ON FIRST!
The thumb seems a bit tight, but again, i've never been able to fit/size gloves very well, so what do i know?
Almost too warm. I wore them for the first time in February 2011 on a trip to Utah. Temps were in the mid teens with wind and snow. Without liners, the mittens were almost too warm. I would have to remove them occasionally to let my hands cool off, which is better that the other option, trying to warm them up. They are not bulky and are sized correctly.
nice overall, need liners on sub-zero days
These are great mitts, but out on an open lake for cross-country skiing with 5 below wind chill, I wish I had worn my liners!
Nice mitt, but runs really big
Wanted to get my teenage son some really warm mitts for skiing. I bought him size small, but they were still way too long. I usually wear L or XL in gloves and the finger length fit me. Returned them for some North Face Nuptse's in XS which fit him great and are toasty warm.
Warmer than Hestra
I own the Hestra Army and the Randonee, both Gore-Tex. The Randonee is much warmer (I realize I am unfairly comparing a mitt with a finger glove). If you are skiing on a day with temps in the teens or below, take the Randonee. If temps are higher, use the Hestra (or add an Ibex thin wool liner for colder temps). I have never been dissatisfied with the Randonee. The quality of the glove is excellent. I've never had an issue with the stitching, as detailed in other review--for the last three seasons my gloves have remained in perfect condition. If you want warm fingers and are fine with losing some dexterity, purchase the Randonee. Great mitt!
What is the ratings on this mitt ?
What is the ratings on this mitt ?
Mitts don't have ratings, but I would venture that you'll be well covered down to zero degree weather.
I agree with Angus. You'll be warm down to zero. You may want to wear a very thin wool liner to keep warm at temps several degrees colder. If you think you'll need something warmer, try the Marmot Expedition mitt, which has been known to keep fingers warm at temps well below 0 fahrenheit.
don't know yet
My husband bought this mitt and it is really nice except we will have to return it for another pair. The stitching/fabric came undone on the first day of use. So the jury is still out on it's performance.
Does this or a similiar Mitt come in...
Does this or a similiar Mitt come in 3XL?
Last year I ordered a pair of Randonee...
Last year I ordered a pair of Randonee mitts with a "glove type" insert built into the mitt. Do you have any of these? I bought a unisex size small - sales guy said it was basically a men's small, fits medium woman's hand great.
