Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been using this mitten for about three seasons now and I am VERY pleased with this product. I cross-country ski on the Bighorn Trail / Fawn Pass Loop in northwest Yellowstone National Park and my hands used to always be cold. Now, with these new mittens, my hands are VERY warm 99% of the time.
I ski in temperatures ranging from 10*F to 35*F and these gloves keep my hands cozy. Occasionally, if the wind is blowing hard, I will get a slight chill, but for the most part you will be happy with this mitten.
Removing and putting on this mitten is quick and easy. When I pause for a break the mitten design allows them to fit easily over my poles that I've thrust upright in the snow on either side of the track. The cuffs are perfect for what I need, fitting nicely over the extended sleeves of my wind-block fleece jacket. If I could give these mittens eight stars, I would!
