These gloves are alright for the money paid I guess... Not as warm as I was hoping. My fingers were getting pretty numb at -15c. Small hole in the wool liner after the first use, quite possibly there even before that. Tough to get your hand back in after any sort of moisture build up. The small pieces of velcro fastening the liner to the shell don't hold up whatsoever. Other than that, they seem to be alright.. I ordered the XL's and they just barely fit. My hand from base to finger-tip is 8in and the widest part of my palm is 4in

that's definetly best snowboard glove i own (Level gore-tex+kevlar and few other).
+leather palm is durable and thin enough to operate with small items.
+fixation and gaiters.
+wool liner is incredible - warm and comfy, i forgot about skin drying problems in winter!
going to buy few more Stoic products, like 1piece suit and feather midlayer :)
Love this mitt. Warmth of a full mitt with the handling of a glove. Best of both worlds.
Im not impressed. I'm a full time ski patroller in Utah, where the temps are relatively mild. These mits are actually colder than most 5-finger gloves I've warn. Great for temps above 20, but then you really don't need a mit. Below 20, forget it, particularly if you actually work with your hands in the cold.
After using these gloves for 10+ days of snowboarding, I feel like I can write an adequate review.
The gauntlet/cuff is an excellent length and does a perfect job keeping snow off my hands and out of my coat.
The trigger style mitt is pretty awesome. Three warm fingers and still good dexterity for my snowboard bindings. If the finger flying solo gets a little cold, I let him hang out with the others for a while.
Liner system is great. I can use these gloves without liners above ~10 F or with the liners when it's colder. This glove system is good for nearly all temperatures experienced throughout the season.
Like most Stoic garments, the build quality is sub par. Finger portion appears as if it was not cut perfectly. Material near stitching is not fully waterproof. Next season I fully expect the waterproofing to being to fail seriously.
Like ALL Stoic garments, the sizing is out of control bad. With liners, Large glove fits more like a Medium should. Without liner, my hand is swimming around in the mitt.
The "Double Helix Gauntlet closure" does not secure the glove around the wrist very well. Needs some sort of strap at the wrist like many other mitts have, especially due to the sizing issues I mentioned. This would fix some of the
This mitt has a lot of potential, but fails deliver, especially at the price point. Great design idea and liner system, but sizing is bad, and the lacks necessary features to make this a great glove. Spend a little more cash and get something perfect.
These are just ok. I was able to make them much better though. I have been suffering from Raynaud's (really cold hands) for several years now which has given me difficulty when skiing. My most recent glove before this was the BD Guide Glove, which I believe is the warmest glove you can buy. I also have a pair of down mittens which have been a lifesaver, but offer zero dexterity.
I was interested in the lobster style glove as it would hopefully offer a little more in the way of warmth than a traditional glove and more in terms of dexterity than a mitten. When I received these and realized there was no other insulation save for a wool liner, I knew these probably wouldn't cut it warmth wise.
The nice aspect of these mitts is that they are modular, meaning you can swap out the liner with a heavier glove if needed, or use the wool liner over a thinner glove liner. I found that Hestra sold only the liners for their three-finger series on their website and bought the Primaloft liner (they sell wool as well). They have a long and short version. The long version I bought hits just about an inch and a half short of the end of the Welder's gauntlet. They also feature velcro at the top to secure them, and while these don't match up to the velcro on the inside of the mitt, they fit snug enough that its not an issue. It's possible the short versions would hit the velcro tabs on the inside of the mitt, but I cannot confirm this.
After two days in sub-freezing temps on the mountain, the mitts with the new liners, hand-warmers and silk-weight liners kept my hands pretty good all day. I did have to take one break, but that was mainly due to using a pair of glove liners that were a little too thick and hampered circulation.
I also added my own dummy straps by attaching elastic cord and toggles onto the size tags inside the shells.
My main issues with the mitts is that they are not waterproof at all. I don't know what Sympatex or Dryzone is, but after removing the Hestra liners, I felt the inside of the shells and they were soaked through. It wasn't even wet out either so this was all moisture absorbed from having my hand on the snow. Luckily, the inside of the Hestra liners stayed bone dry. Be sure to use wool or synthetic liners with these.
On the last day one of the cords used to tighten the gauntlet (there are two) tore off the pull tab and is lost somewhere inside the gauntlet. So these are going back and I'm hoping the replacements last a little longer than two days.
I must say that I've never came across a trigger mitten until I picked these up off of SAC. They have a great wool liner that is removable but doesn't fall out when you try to put them on and off. The construction is solid just like I would expect from Stoic. I haven't taken these mittens down into the negative temps but they have been warm thus far.
Great fit. Included with a wool liner that helps, but isn't completely needed. Easy to dry when things get wet on a stormy day out.
I like the way these gloves look! Shell construction is really sharp with the grip being a perfect mix of soft leather and grippy Pittard's-style material.
However, coming from the Hestra Heli glove that is very similar, I was cold in these in 15-25 degree weather. With a 3-finger style glove like this, I assume the only reason you go for the style is because you need as much warmth as possible without going to a full mitten. For me, the liner is a bit thin. On the plus side (and unlike the Hestra), the liner allows you to slot all of your fingers into one pocket to warm them up. The weight is good for ski touring, but too light for riding lifts in mid-winter if you have colder hands.
The description says it has a removable wool liner, but in the specs it says Removable Liner: No. Anyone know which it is?
the liner is wool and it is removable. From the stoic website:
"... the removable wool liner offers versatility for changing conditions." and it says "Removable Liner:Removable wool liner"
Are there any changes to this mitt from last year? (other than the obvious color changes)
