The Mountain Hardware Absolute Zero Mitten are considered as the expedition grade mittens offered by Mountain Hardware. I have received mine two days ago. Out of experience with mittens these seem to be very warm but their construction is very weak. When i first wore them and tried to tighten the wrist strap, the strap buckle and its attachment completely broke out. The left one seems to be equally weak. The Wrist strap is only attached by a sewing thread that runs across the side of the mittens and could have benefited from better structure.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
These things are great for warming up hands, like a belay jacket for your fingers. After climbing a pitch of ice they induce screaming barfies almost immediately. They also make everyone else jealous.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got some MH Nilas mitts last year & loved most things about them. (which I later replaced with a pair of these) On our annual family trip to Whistler for trash talk & skiing/boarding my kids hands were painfully cold... Flipping freak out near tears, sopping wet freezing glove that had been DWR treated and were supposed to be waterproof already. The best REI had to offer. How the heck can I enjoy the trip when my kids are so miserable!? On our trip pre-check shopping this year I had a very clear memory of this. I did a quick search & found that these are even better & where on sale. My wife was like,
How does the sizing compare to BD absolute? I'm a med in the BD's what would these be?
