Shawn B.wrote a review of Arc'teryx Beta AR Mitten - Women's on February 3, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Because I have Raynaud's and carpal tunnel I really have trouble finding something that was functional for skiing in the wet Pacific Northwest. These mittens worked for me. Previously an OT had told me my old puffy mitts were causing problems with my grip strength and that I should try gloves. Well, that experiment failed because I couldn't get the hand warmer where I needed it, at my fingertips. I wore these articulated mittens with a glove liner (just in case I have to get something out of my pocket) and they were fine. I do not consider them super-warm, but they ARE waterproof and worked well for the weather during my trip.
