Would these be to bulky to grab the hand brake or the clutch on a motorcycle ? Thanks in advance .


Responded on

The North Face Himalayan Mitten is a big bulky glove because it is intended to be used in some of the harshest conditions you can find. I think it would work for a motorcycle clutch and hand brake but I would not recommend it since the excessive insulation will probably slow down your braking response time and considerably reduce your feel on the handle bars.

this picture gives you an idea of how big the mitts are-hanging on my harness. they really are to warm for temps above 20 F.

My hands get cold very easily. Would these be too much for snowboarding? I had the Hestra Heli Mitts but they weren't warm enough.

Responded on

These are designed for the most extreme conditions. They are big and bulky. they might come in handy for times when you're not as active, but when you're working up body heat, they'll be too much.

I used to have cold hands..and now I don't.

I used to have Mt. Hardware gloves, north face gloves, Hestra gloves and few others that were supposedly the store's "warmest gloves." Well, my hands were still ALWAYS COLD skiing. I broke down and spent the money on the MITTENS and they were worth every penny. I've skied with them for two years now, and my hands have NEVER gotten cold. I guarantee you will get what you pay for with these mittens. Don't settle for less because the store salesman says "he's been using these all winter and he's never cold." He's just trying to sell you something in his store. Go out and buy these. My friend has some mountain hardware mittens with liners, and any day I'm not going out, he asks to borrow mine. Any day he is on the slopes with me and his hands are frozen, he sticks his hands in my "ovens" so he calls them and warms them up for 20 minutes and is good to go for a little while longer. These gloves have been through days where its -20 on peaks without the wind chill, and with the windchill about -45 to -50. I can't say enough great things about these gloves so just buy them if you have cold hands and want warm ones.

Freakey warm

After taking my gloves off and letting my hands get pretty damn cold in -20 wind chill with blowing snow on the summit of mt washington these mitts warmed my hands up in minutes and before I knew it I was taking them off and going back into my other gloves. The hugeness makes them a bit hard to use an ice axe but that's pretty much expected with mitts like this.

These are the real deal. A great product for a cold frigging winter this year! The 800-fill technology is just great and the waterproofing is awesome! Little pricey but definitely worth every cent!! TNF as usual!

One thing you don't cheap out on is your hands.

Warmest Mittens Ever Owned

I have really pathetic circulation in my fingers...problems with chilblains and raynaud's....and these are the ONLY mittens that keep my fingers warm once the temperature drops to the teens and below. I bought them specifically for those times when I'm not exercising vigorously, since that's when I need the extra warmth the most. I'm guessing they would be way too warm for something like x-country skiing....unless temps are in the single digits, or less. My thumb did get cold, as others mentioned.....but I just slid it in with my hand and everything was good. And yes, dexterity is lousy, but that's not why I bought them.

Belay glove

This is my go to glove for times when I am sitting in the cold. My last use of these was in a ski clinic where it was 10 degrees and we spent two hours on the bunny hill. Another reviewer commented that the thumbs got cold, so did mine. That is why I am glad it was a mit and I just pulled them into my fist. These are usually my belay gloves and have gone through some abuse because of close contact with granite and metal. They have held up awesome. NF is not my first choice for outerwear, but these gloves are great. I use BD guide gloves when on the move, but these are by far my go to glove for extreme low temps and low activity.

I carefully measured before buying a medium in this glove. Should there really be about an inch between my fingers and the end of the glove? Should I return them for a small?

Responded on

Are you putting your bare hand in it? Perhaps the room would be best used for some sort of liner? I'd say that your fine and the little bit of extra space just gives your some room to be a little more flexible with using a liner.

Good stuff

These are great mittens, I've had them for a couple years now and thew are incredibly warm... tons of room on the inside, true to size yet doesn't feel constricting...

It should be noted that these are huge 'gauntlet' style mittens, and you will not have any sort of fine motor skills with your hands while wearing these (such as dialing a cell phone, going through a key ring, et cetera) some complain because of this, but that is really the point, they are big, burly super warm mittens, the end, also the neoprene inner cuff is pretty nice, ensures a good seal around the cuff of the jacket

Very Good Mittens

These mittens are very warm. I had read that some thought they were slippery but I haven't noticed that. They are very roomy inside allowing you to wear an inner layer of glove and remove your hands for detail work. I am very satisfied.

Great Mittens

I've had these mittens for a few months now and have had the chance to take them up to 14,000+ft in winter conditions, as well as have them in skiing conditions of wind chills around the 30 below mark and I've got to say that these were worth every penny. I often wear them with light neoprene/spandex liners, with the addition of which my hands feel invincible. My only gripe is that they may be too warm. e.g. I wore them on a pretty rigorous snowshoe hike/climb in temperatures in the low thirties and my hands got too warm and had to draw them out of the mitts from time to time. Obviously, dexterity sucks, but having said that you can still preform basic tasks (e.g. zipping/unzipping your coat, grip a pole, etc.) I read the last review that gave this item 2 stars and my only thought there is that if you're not generating any heat, no amount of insulation is gonna do you any good. Two thumbs up here. Far and away the best mitts i've ever owned.

think twice

I thought I'd be getting a warm mitten with these but was a little disappointed. When I first used them the tempurature was around ten degrees, my activity was light to moderate. Around 45 minutes I felt my thumbs starting to get cold and had to move them to the finger area. Also, when trying to grab an object the inside seems to slip and not grab easily. For $100+ these should be better designed.

Are these mittens washable?

Are these mittens washable?

Responded on

Yes they are but you'll want to either hand wash or use the hand wash cycle. Extra rinse and don't use fabric softner. If you're open you might also try the Outdoor Research Alti Mitten. I found them to feel not so slippery on the palm. these have a synthetic insulation on the palm side of your hand which literally felt slippery when you gripped things. Kind of strange and maybe a little anal retentive but that was just what I found.Hope that helps.

these gloves look like they're nice sized in the picture, but i want to make sure that they are big enough to fit over a coat sleeve. will this be an issue or will i be ok?

Responded on

They'll be big enough. They're designed to be gauntlets just for that purpose. The drawstrings will allow you to cinch them tight.
