Hats down to this Company
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Very simple, but extremely warm
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
There were no reviews for these when I bought them, so I was a little worried, but Backcountry has a simple return process so I thought I would try them. I always wear my gloves under my coat sleeves, and have always just crammed the over mitts inside my coat sleeves. I am so very happy that I finally bought an under-mitt. It has a very basic design for the cuff--which makes taking them on and off on the chair very easy and I dont have to wrestle all of that unnecessary fabric back under my coat sleeve each time. The other thing I was worried about was how warm they would be. They are very thin and very basic, but to my delight they are very warm. The more thick does not always equal more warmth. It's all about the material. This 2015-2016 season has been extremely cold, and I have taken these night-boarding several times and have stayed plenty warm. The thinness was actually something I was looking for to make it easier to take on and off my bindings. I was hoping the thinness would not have to be a trade-off for warmth--which it isnt. The grip on the palm of the mitt is really nice and grippy even in sub freezing temps. These are very well made, and I cant spot any areas were these will frey or fall apart like other mitts I've had. I like the Rasta red-green-gold--it definitely breaks up typical all black gloves you see out there.
Too warm for spring/warm conditions?
Doubt it. the material is really thin and breathable. They are supper toasty in the coldest conditions, but I think they will be great for spring, and that's what I'll be using them for too
