How tough are these? Are they just for wearing around camp, or can they stand up to carrying an axe/ ski pole?

These Mitts are bit odd to me. The sizing from RAB is confusing and misleading. RAB USA was of no help before I ordered these. I also have their Expedition Mitts, which is the same labelled size Large, compared to these is an XL or XXL. For me these are just not large enough.
The Expedition Mitts have lots of down around the fingers , where it counts. These do not . The long, wide cuffs are stuffed to the max, but the hand narrows down considerably . At the tips of the fingers there is not that much down, so ALL that cuff down is rather misplaced in my opinion. I've not heard many say "My forearms are freezing but my hands are warm !" Put the down where it matters, around the hand.
The palm material is great, grippy. I wish the Expedition Mitt had that, it only has a heavier cordura nylon with no grip.
Really, really warm. You feel your hands sweat the instant you put them on if you're indoors. Can't wait to try them in deserving weather.
