If the Expedition's warm enough at 8000 meters, it's warm enough anywhere!

The Marmot Expedition Mitt was developed as a companion piece to Marmot's 8000 Meter Suit and Parka, and is the warmest handwear Marmot makes. The Expedition Mitt utilizes waterproof, breathable MemBrain fabric to creat the bomber shell. Sweat makes your hands just as cold as snow does. The DriClime lining wicks interior moisture away from your paws. WR leather provide weather-resistant grip, and water repellent, low bulk PrimaLoft insulation turns the Expedition into a sleeping bag for your hands.

Too Warm?

Purchased these about 7 years ago. They kept my hands so warm they sweat! I opted to put them away for a pair that was fingerless and flipped down. Wish these were made with a 'fingerless flip top' or removable inserts. :o)

Weak leather in the palm

Very warm gloves, they are great in that category, but mine developed a penny-sized hole in less than 10 days of wear that shouldn't have resulted in such a thing happening. The leather they use sucks-its peeling away around the glove elsewhere too. Look towards the OR mitts if you need a pair, they have better mitts and a better warranty program too. I'm sending my mitts into marmot but I'm dubious as to whether or not the warranty covers it.

Marmot Expedition Mitt

I used these mitts on my Mt. Elbrus climb in July 2010. Great pair of mitts - super warm in a couple of minutes after you put them on. They do feel bulky though and make you lose dexterity in a big way. I was barely able to hold an ice axe with these mitts on!

Awesome, but not perfect

I really love how warm these gloves are. Did some mountaineering in sub zero temps around -10-20F and my hands were warm with just a light liner glove underneath. Remember theres little dexterity with these mits, but they hold an ice axe just fine. Only wished they came with a liner. :D

For when things get serious

Super warm. I have stopped carrying a sleeping bag to high camps on 8000 meter peaks. I sleep in my down suit, put on these mittens, take off my boots, wrap my feet in a down sweater and put them in my pack. It is pretty brutal and I usually don't sleep well but for the few hours that I'm up there, it works. These mittens are a critical part of my survival system. Used on Everest and K2

Below Zero? Grab these!

I love these gloves! They are super warm and durable. I wear these whenever the temps drop into the teens and below and they always keep my hands warm. In other gloves I have tried swaping liners and every other trick but always come back to these. Good for skiing and winter camping and when it get into the negatives im still warm. Great Product!

trying to decide between these and the OR alti mitts, any suggestions?

Responded on

Go with the altis-way warmer and removable primaloft lining to place in your sleeping bag to dry out etc. Also these have more insulation

I have a pr of Marmot expedition gloves...

I have a pr of Marmot expedition gloves from last year. The thumb has worn a whole through it, was looking at getting a new pr. Do the new ones have the inside fingers like my old ones?

Responded on

I believe these are strictly mitts and do not have fingers inside.

Responded on

The new mitts are strictly mitts. They are the warmest mitts you can buy. If you are having problems with them like many of these post are about I would like to remind you they are for mountaineering not skiing or driving your car. If you are looking for stuff that is great for that look into the black diamond freeride line. Easy to see at

these are by far the best mittens i have ever owned....hands down

will Backcountry get more sizes of this...

will Backcountry get more sizes of this mitt in this ski season (08/09)?

Responded on

The best thing to do is jump on "live chat" and ask those folks. They can look up if there are any on order, and if they are they can tell you roughly when they're expected.

Warm Warm Warm

Got these for my wife whose hands are always cold when snowboarding. Even in moderate temperatures her hands are cold and these mittens kept them warm in 10 degree (F) temps. Very little dexterity with these mittens to the point that they generally come off to connect snowboard bindings. The sizes are much larger than average Marmot gloves and mittens. An XS would be fine for most women and the Small - Medium would fit most men. Overall very happy with these, but if you have anything but the coldest hands they are probably overkill for skiing / snowboarding on most days.

Does the Expedition Mitt include:True mitts (no fingers) Inside fingered glovesHow long is the warranty

Best Answer Responded on

I can answer the warranty for you. It's a lifetime one. No questions asked full refund policy. True mitten - no inside fingers.

Great .. but

I love marmot stuff, its never let me down. Got these gloves for summit day mountaineering, where there isn't a lot of hand control required ... the other posts are right, they are not a precise feel under the hand! They are super warm and thick, with no detachable inner - ie you add one. My wife got the OR version (with innner) and so I was able to do a comparison. The OR ones are better and more versatile I think but much more expensive. Still a great product to go with your oversized down jacket.

Warm enough (finally!)

These are the warmest handwear I've ever worn, including others from marmot like the randonee mitt and the ultimate glove. I took them skiing when it was -10 degrees outside (-27 with wind chill) and my hands were toasty, even sweating after some of the more difficult runs. I have been using them all of this ski season and they show no signs of wearing out. The only downside to these is that because they are so stuffed full of insulation, it is a bit harder to fasten helmet buckles and open up my cell phone. However, it's not too much of a problem, and holding on to ski poles is no harder than any other mitten, contrary to other reviews. Also, the inner and outer liners are attached along the top portion of the mittens. Overall, I would highly recommend these mittens. NOTE: buy them a size smaller than you normally would wear, they run a bit large.

Bulky and slippery (but warm)

Bulky mittens with a liner that lacks grip to the shell, making it difficult to grab anything -- even your skis to carry them. My hands were warm, but my thumb did get cold skiing on a very cold day.

Nice for sleeping in, that might be it

These mitts are super warm but the durability is terrible. If you buy them for light resort skiing they'll be fine, but anything more, they'll split on the sides, and by anything more I do mean gripping the steering wheel too tight.

Marmot mitts

These are the greatest for people who's hands get cold skiing. The new palm design has made them even more durable as that is what gave way on my old pair!

Marmott Expedition Mitt

The mitts are great for really cold weather as they're filled with Down. However, if you are trying to use the mitt while skiing or any other sport that requires a lot of hand movement, it's hard to hold the equipment in your hand firmly as the Down keeps sliding between your hand and the tool within the mitt sleeve.

Warm at last!

I purchased the Marmot Expedition Mitt in February after returning from a very cold ski trip to Steamboat Springs. I returned to Steamboat last week and we again had a couple of cold days. I used a glove liner with the mitten and it was almost too warm! I have very small hands for a male and I have always had difficulty keeping my fingers warm even using chemical hand warmers. These mittens are perfect. They do run a little large—the men’s' small is a little big, but okay with liners, plus using mittens for the first time had its own learning curve.

I bought these as a cold-weather downhill ski glove, but had to return them. I found that the surface between the inner liner and the outer shell was very slippery, and since the gloves were pretty bulky and the inner and outer liners weren't attached to one another, I couldn't get a solid grip on my ski poles.
