Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My hands are always cold. There is not a glove in the world that will keep my hands warm enough, so I turn to mittens. I wore these mittens last season for about 100 days in Montana, from cold to warmish. I am a snowboard instructor, so my gloves get a lot of use taking bindings on and off of myself and students. These mittens held up very well, with little wear on the leather and my hands were warm on all but the coldest Montana days (-10 degrees and colder). On really cold days, I put a hand warmer inside and was good to go. There is no internal glove in these mittens, so the hand warmer works well. I'm buying another pair for this season just in case my others wear out!

I bought this pack based on the great reviews and Osprey's reputation for making good products. The materials are high quality and I really like the pockets, the Nalgene bladder, and the magnetic bite valve. The capacity is perfect for an extra layer, snacks ,keys, phone, and dog leashes with room to spare.

I am 5'8" and don't always buy women's specific products, but liked the colors of this one better than the men's, so I bought the Verve. This pack is designed for a short women. The torso length works ok for me, but the shoulder straps are not long enough, the sternum strap fits in an odd place, and I spent my entire first hike with this pack fussing with the straps to try to make it more comfortable. I would recommend this pack for a short woman with narrow shoulders, but it does not fit me.
