Do you have this in Medium/Turtle Dove? I bought a Large but it's too big.
great for cold days
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I don't have great circulation and my hands (and toes) are always cold skiing, no matter what I do. I finally ordered these after reading so many positive reviews, and I wore them skiing in Jackson Hole when the temps were between -11 and 4. I added my own thin glove liners since this mitten doesn't come with any (which is fine). I'm happy to report the mittens worked wonderfully and I only got a tiny bit cold, which is amazing compared to normal. If you're going to go in temps even colder than the negative single digits, I'd recommend going with the Marmot Expedition Mitt, which is one step up on the heat scale. (But those things are super super bulky--they're meant for, like, antarctic expeditions.) All in all, I'm way pleased with this purchase and this will be my go-to ski mitten for very cold days at the resort and in the backcountry. I like keeping glove liners on underneath so I can easily slip the mittens off to fiddle with my boot buckles, phone, etc.
Very Warm--Don't dry
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These mittens were extremely warm for below-zero skiing in Colorado. Unfortunately, the liners did not dry completely and they were cold and uncomfortable by the end of Day 3. Problem seems to be that moisture never escapes from lining. Also, they are very thick and I always had to remove them to make boot adjustments; clumsy to put through loops on ski poles.

PJ, it appears these do not have a removable liner.
Super warm mitts
I was never a mitten fan, as I didn't like the lack of dexterity that accompanied them. But for my trip to the Arctic I thought they would be the warmest option. After asking around, I went with these, and was very glad I did! I must have abnormally large thumbs, because I had to get the large in order to fit them, but that left some extra room for my fingertips. Even so, they were warmer than they've ever been with gloves, even at -40. And that was just standing around. If I was moving (such as the many times we had to dig cars out of snowbanks), they were almost too warm! I didn't even use the nifty pocket for the handwarmer packs, but they're there if you want them. Expensive? Yes, but worth every penny when it comes to comfort in extreme cold.
We got these mittens for my wife. She is actually allergic to the cold but loves skiing and we have a second home up in the mountains. We got her these mittens and have had no issues since. She skis, snowshoes and wears them out on cold nights to dinner. She loves them and I would recommend them for anyone that wants super warm mittens.
Pretty good mitt!
To answer some question on here there is a mitten liner inside, not a glove liner. And the liner IS NOT removable. The leather is this new agey stuff that supposedly will hold up better to washing which is good news!
I whipped these out today in a deep powder day with wind chills between 3 and 10 degrees F. My hands considering how cold it was, did ok. I did wear an additional liner underneath these. The only cold spot I noticed the most was my thumb, however, I have terrible circulation, so I'd still say to buy these if you always have cold hands.
When I was moving, my hands warmed up really well (hiking and actually skiing). My hands stayed dry all day and the raging wind did not go through the membrane at all! The gloves' gauntlet system could be wider, I had to really tuck in my sleeves of my jacket in there. The cinch system on the gauntlet works well and the long strings so I don't lose my mittens is nice. The mittens also have a clip to stick them together.
Overall, if there was a 4.5 stars I'd give it that. It's a good mitt and worth the $$$ if you have really cold hands. Your hands will stay dry and warm especially warm if you are in motion at all.

i'm right on the border of a small and a medium. anyone know if these gloves run true to the sizing? (saying that a 7 would be a small, 7 1/2 a medium - my hand is 7" around the knuckles when i make a fist)
from what I've read, they run small, so upsize

Does this mitten have a glove liner or a mitten liner inside?
It's a glove liner inside.
THERE IS NO REMOVEABLE LINER with this mitten. I ordered it from Backcountry just a few weeks ago. I just decided to keep it although it doesn't come with a liner. I contacted the guys through the Chat Now option. Backcountry verified that there is no removeable liner. It was a misprint in the description. They will change it soon.

This one is written in plain English... you can't argue with that.
Finally Warm Tips
Gave these mitts to my Fiance' for Christmas, she wore them at Highlands on a 10 degree day, and told me it was the first time ever that her hands were actually hot! Great idea to use a chemical warmer in the back of the mitt. She has always suffered with cold hands. Great Mitt.

It seems like my hands are always cold even to the point on numb even though I am wearing glove that are rated to be water proof and warm. Do you have any suggestions? Mitten or gloves? I live in Ohio.
