The FlyLow Gear Oven Mitten is a great mitten for the money. I have spent alot of money on gloves and mittens over the past year only to be cold and disappointed. The FlyLow Gear Mitten is a great price, looks great and is warm!
I have had great luck with Backcountry, however, these had to go back. I normally wear a medium, and with some things the medium is a little big, however, these had the strangest fit I have come across. I almost thought my pair was defective. Some fingers were normal length, others were not even close. Even though my fingers hit the end of the liner, there was space between fingers down by my knuckles. Again, real strange. Otherwise they were thin and seemed like they would be great. Real bummed they had to go back. Customer Service was great as usual with the return.
I already wrote a review during the winter season, but I had to write the following after what I just did. We just got one of the hardest rainstorms I ever had in Maryland. My plants outside were toppled over and I felt the need to "Save" my one tomato plant, but it meant I was going to be soaked! Marmot Rubicon to the rescue. I put it on with no shirt on underneath and worked outside for about 2 minutes. My shorts and feet were soaked, however, my body was BONE DRY!! I was absolutely AMAZED. After skiing with it I figured it was great, but something must leak through. NO WAY. This thing is BOMB PROOF. I know my friends like the ArcTerx stuff, but I can't imagine anything being any better than this. Hope this helps!!
Got the jacket so I would have a rain coat for running around town and also have a jacket for skiing. This jacket is great. I am 5'6", 165 pounds and got the medium and it felt a bit big at first, but actually fits great once you layer a bit. This jacket is GREAT. It is completely waterproof. I stood outside in a downpour to see how it was and I was bone dry underneath. For skiing it is great as well. I skied in a snowstorm, powder, a bit of sleet/hail, and then sun and this jacket performed. It is very versatile. The only think it doesn't have is a place for a season pass or a tag to hold your lift ticket. The hood is great, pitzips are nice, powder skirt works well and pockets are dry and warm. The jacket is also fairly light which is nice. I would say it is heavier than a shell but lighter than a full winter jacket. The material was durable also. I was in the trees and brushed several tree branches and got worried, but nothing happened to the jacket. This jacket is great!!!!
