Here's what others have to say...

What is the difference between these Mt Baker mitts and the ones that are $138?

This one is just a waterproof shell - no insulation. The Mt Baker Modular Mitten is waterproof too but it also has 170g of Primaloft insulation!!

I' d like to have this shell mitten and OR PL 400 mitten underneath. I think size L or PL 400 would fit my palm. Could you advise size of mt. baker shell mitt?

Hi Nikolay,

Sizing up for these Mt Baker Shell Mitts to go over a thicker inner mitt will be a good idea- that way you can still move your hands without being too restricted!


Sizing seems larger than older mitts

  • Gender:Female
  • Fit:Runs large

I had two pairs of the Outdoor Research mitten shells over the years and they worked great- kept my hands dry through rain and snow for the entire day skiing and hiking in winter. Lost them this winter and ordered a new pair in the same size, medium. The new pair was significantly longer than my old pairs and the extra length interfered with dexterity, in addition to being extra empty space to keep warm. I did find a size small, but even these were longer than my old mitten shells . The thumb opening is very narrow, compressing the insulating liners. Still, I am hoping these will be just as great as my older version at keeping my hands warm and dry in all kinds of weather.


THE Best Shell Mitt

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs large

If you have cold hands or are looking for a change in systems for your hands, consider this shell mitt that you can combine with some fleece gloves or mitts. This is my third pair of the OR Gortex shell mitt in about 20 years. They are the best in my opinion. The shell allows for plenty of air space, which is the key to warm hands. Packing insulation packs out air, and that makes for cold hands.

I've skied these in conditions as cold as -5 and have been fine. Plus, there's plenty of room for hand warmers.

Gortex keeps em dry in the warmer temps or when in weather.

The best is you can choose what liner to wear and cheaply replace liners as frequently as needed.

They run large -- I am usually an XL glove size and the L Mt. Baker is borderline too big (they seem to have increased the size of them over the years as my last pair was perfect).


Exactly what I was looking for !!

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

I've been hunting for a waterproof non-insulated mitt to cover my Dachstein wool mittens. I've finally found it. I will use these for cold winter ski days & mountain climbs. They are lightweight but very durable. I beat my equipment up quickly but these were built to last.


Versatility of a shell for your hands

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

The Mt. Baker mitts will keep your hands warm, dry and comfortable no mater what conditions the mountain throws at you. The ability to choose your layering makes these so versatile. The Shell is constructed of bomber goretex, is incredibly light, and rolls up into the size of a twinkie to jam in your pack while you hike the hills. When the time comes to ride down, I typically use a midweight liner with the shell, with a warmer option stowed in my pack.

Being a snowboarder, my hands are in the snow a lot, so its nice to have a durable waterproof mitt, with the option to use it in a wide range of conditions. From -20 blower pow days to spring time in the big mountains, this is one mitt that can do it all.

Great Shell Mitten!

This shell mitt is great. I use it routinely for winter trekking in the Cascades where rain has been pretty much on going thru this past fall and now into winter. But I've used them for two years and no signs of shredding or production flaws. The result is wonderfully dry hands. Of course this shell mitt isn't digitally friendly. It isn't made for computer work and it isn't power stretch compression material . It's a full on gortex shell mitt. I wear Black Diamond Storm Weight Gloves as liners because the leather palm holds up great with the cork handles of my trekking poles. I don't crag anymore and I wouldn't suggest that the BD Storm Gloves are appropriate for that purpose, but the combination for trekking works great. I've used the shells with other liners and the Storm gloves hold up best so far. Other similar glove liners seem to pill or weaken when using them extensively in trekking but the Storm's leather palm and finger coverage means they hold up much better. The shell mitt and the BD Storm Gloves are invaluable in cold weather or cold wet weather for trekking or snow mobiling, or snowshoeing. The BD Storm from my experience runs a little small so order a size up. I haven't tried the Outdoor Research Storm Sensor or Alibi II gloves with this shell mitt but they look promising. Cheers!
