Expedition Mitten

The second warmest mitten that Marmot has on offer, the Expedition Mitt is developed for high-altitude pursuits on your skis or snowboard. This technical gauntlet employs waterproof breathable fabric and synthetic insulation to create a cozy, on-route sleeping bag for your digits. PrimaLoft One insulation features ultra-fine synthetic fibers that trap warmth, provide water resistance, and survive repeated compressions. Meanwhile, the DriClime Bi-Component lining wicks moisture away from your skin so your digits stay comfortable through each and every turn.

  • A toasty warm mitten for the coldest ski days of the year
  • Waterproof, breathable fabric keeps your hands dry and comfortable
  • Synthetic insulation guarantees warmth even in damp conditions
  • Reinforced palm stands up to use and abuse on the ski hill
  • Wrist strap and gauntlet drawcord cinch out the snow and cold
  • Safety leash included for extra security during transitions
  • Nose wipe offers a smooth touch when the day is bitter cold and dry
  • Item #MAR2453

Nice mitten

    I've skied with these a couple of times in cold weather. I always use inserts with mittens but some I've had in the past still weren't warm. Not the case with these, very warm and comfortable, easy on and off if you have to use your fingers. The only negative I have is the palm material is too slick and items can slip out of your hand without a tight grip.

    Nice and Warm, OK for skiing

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought these primarily for skiing. They are very warm, no complaints with that. They are OK for pole grip, but your grip feels slightly slippery for lack of a better description. The fit runs a bit large. I often need to buy XL for gloves and mittens, but a Large fit me fine.

    The best mitten!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great overall mitten, but like other reviews state they run slightly large. They are perfect for snowboarding. The long cuff keeps the snow out and the insulation keeps your hands toasty!

    OVEN

      These mitts are definitely warm, especially if your hands aren't naturally cold. I think these will function as my gloves for super cold days on the mountain. I am yet to find out how waterproof they are, but I plan on getting something else for days that I don't need to worry about my hands freezing. Overall they are a high quality product and I don't have any complaints. Now it just needs to start snowing.

      Digit Savers!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      My first time using these was on a hike in the Adirondacks, with -26F temperatures (-30 to -40 with the windchill). My fingers were getting dangerously cold, and no combination of gloves was helping to warm them. Very shortly after putting these mittens on, my hands and fingers quickly began to warm up, and were protected from the severe cold for the remainder of the day. They were not a cheap investment, but considering the real-world functionality and materials used, obviously worth it. Consider me a believer!

      Bomber at -30 F wind chills

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      These gloves performed perfectly in absolutely frigid conditions. I used them for a Mt Washington climb a few weeks ago and my fingers were nice and toasty. I’d say that there do run large (I’m 6’1) and the XL is a little big. The dexterity isn’t great but it’s about right for a mitten. If you want a reasonably priced mitten that will keep you warm on breaks, this a good choice.

      Very warm

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      First time I have used mittens and they have been great in these bitter cold days in the northeast. It was -20F the other day with the wind and i used a light glove liner with a hand warmer and I never felt any cold. The gloves are a little slippery for holding poles, but that might just be my adjustment to a mitten. I really like how high they come up on my forearm.

      Extremely Warm!

        It is hard to find the insulation weight for these mittens anywhere so I wanted to share it for anyone trying to compare mittens. On the back of hand the mittens have 20 oz (560 grams) Primaloft One Insulation while the palm uses 10 oz (280 grams) of Primaloft One.

        Cold hands

          Very good product when I got my mitts and the next day it was 17 degrees wind chill 9 I was good my hands get very cold real easy I had frostbite in my hand and I could not find gloves or mittens that would keep my hands warm but these mittens did the job.

          Great

          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: Medium
          • Height: 5'8"
          • Weight: 144lbs

          Primaloft Gold is the best synthetic insulation, and these have it. These are not over-padded, so the dexterity is good for mittens. The fabric is great. The fit is great. It has a nose-wipe. It has one-handed draw-strings. I can't imagine better unless you wanted a removable liner., in which case there is the OR or the Marmot 8000.



          Some people say these run large. I have a size 8 hand, and ordered a medium. I am 5'8 and 144 lbs and do not have large hands. They fit me perfectly, so I claim these do not run large, but are true to size. My OR Adrenaline mittens ran small, and I had to get large in those. The OR large is like these Marmot in medium.



          I am able to comfortably wear Thermasilk or Serius liners in them, but my not very thick Black Diamond fleece gloves won't fit in. If I wanted to wear real gloves inside them, I could have ordered a size up.



          I used my thermal camera and put ice blocks inside these (see photo on the right), the OR Adrenaline (middle), and Marmot gloves (left). These had significantly less cold transmission.

          Great

          Warm and soft but runs large

          • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
          • Fit: Runs large
          • Size Bought: Small

          Great mittens overall but buy a size smaller. I usually wear M in women's , S in unisex/ men, and S was huge on me. We'll see how XS fits.

          Warm, soft; great gloves

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: Runs large
          • Size Bought: small
          • Height: 6'0"
          • Weight: 155lbs

          I initially tried the Black Diamond Mercury Mits, and found the divided index finger uncomfortable. I returned them, and purchased these instead. They run large, so I exchanged a medium for a small (my hand measures 7in from the tip of my middle finger to where my wrist begins). These gloves are soft, comfortable, and so warm!
          My hands run cold, and these gloves keep my fingers warm into the single digits. I have not taken them into the negative F range, but I had toasty hands/fingers with activity at around 8F.

          Warm and fluffy

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: medium
          • Height: 5'6"
          • Weight: 105lbs

          These mittens are great for super warmth and insulation from the bitter sub-zero cold. I use these more than I probably should but my fingers get cold if I wear gloves! Love these but you have to be prepared to be a bit dexteriously immobile. It’s a risk I am willing to take here.

          TOO HOT for Sothern California winters

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: Runs large
          • Size Bought: Medium

          Easy to put on (5 stars)
          Wish the wrist straps had rubber ends so I can pull it with ease but it isn't (3 stars).
          Too Hot for Cali, I mean that's what the mitts are for to keep you warm right? So what can i complain about.. (5 Stars)
          No mobility, I mean their mitts but it's too puffy (4 Stars)
          Great overall mitts, but I personally bought the wrong ones.
          The non-rubber ends of the wrist strap really bugs.

          Bought a Large, returned it for a Medium

          Just Adequate

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: XS
          • Height: 5'4"
          • Weight: 130lbs

          I bought these gloves to replace another pair of Marmot gloves I lost after finishing a long hiking trip. The reviews said these gloves were moderately warm, and I would agree with that, or perhaps even below expectations. The glove is thinner than I expected and the shell is not as wind proof as my old one. It's a well functioning glove, your hands won't get wet, even in the slushiest of snows, and your hands definitely won't freeze. But they aren't as cozy as I wanted them to be.

          If you're looking for unsurpassed coziness I would say pass on this one. If you're looking for something that will function well in near freezing temperatures then this should suffice. But I think I'm going to have to upgrade to something more serious.

          Unanswered Question

          What is the weight of primaloft one in the palm and back of this mitt?

          Unanswered Question

          How will these work with snow skiing? I understand that they have a lack of dexterity, but I really need the warmth because my hands fun very cold. Gloves just aren't providing me with enough warmth. I need something that will keep my hands warm for an extended period of time and I'm just curious if these will perform well. Please let me know. Thank you!

          I have an older version of these mitts that have finger holes on the inside. I love them. Just wondering if the new version still have finger holes or are they completely open on the inside?

          Bought mitts. But they are missing the rubbery tab at the end of the wrist strap! Pulling strap with mitts on is tough without the tab! Compare my photo with the main photo for the mitts.



          I bought these same mitts several years ago. I loved them so much I wanted to replace them with the same mitts after some stitching broke and the insulation felt less lofty.



          I received the Marmot mitts on 3/19. Since they were missing the tab at the end of the wrist straps, I returned them for an even exchange. I just received the replacement. But the replacement has the same problem!



          Was I just unlucky and got two defective pairs of mitts?

          Or is Marmot making the mitts without the rubbery tab now?

          I would bet that Marmot stopped using rubber on the tip of that strap. We probably have wrong picture. Ill get our inventory checked out tomorrow. After that I will contact you directly with a solution.

          I'm looking for a good pair of warm mittens that will keep my hands warm here is Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada when the temperature can drop down to -40 Celsius. I'm also a petite woman...would these mitts work for me?

          Best Answer

          My experience with Primaloft one is that it's a great insulator without being super bulky. That being said, the expedition mitt may be too bulky if that's what you're worried about as you mentioned being petite. Check out the Marmot Warmest Mitten with a women's specific fit (Search for MAR0957).

          Does anyone know how many grams of PrimaLoft...

          Does anyone know how many grams of PrimaLoft One Marmot uses in these mitts?

          I am sorry, but I cannot seem to find, on Marmot's website nor anyone else's for that matter, an actual number pertaining to weight in grams of PrimaLoft One that are built into the gloves.

          I hope someone else comes along to assist who might actually be able to trawl the answer from the Interwebs.

          I have some of these Mitts from 2001, when they used 2 layers of PL One 4 oz./sq. yd on the palm, and 3 layers on the back. That was then.



          I just ordered a new pair of Exp. Mitts, as my 2001 pair have been compressed in the palm for most of the years I've had them, rendering them for use only with thick liners and no colder than about 20F. A con of Primaloft is holding it's loft under long term compresion.



          That said, these new ones, by my educated guess, are using no more than the 200g back and and a little less in the front. It's nowhere as thick as the previous version.



          The sizing is smallish, about the same as it was in 2001. I can wear a powerstretch liner in an XL and that's it. My originals were undersized too, considering the "Expedition" tiltle where you'd assume they could handle a heavy glove inside for use in real cold. I thought they'd change that but they did not.



          I imagine true professionals likley have their mitts made for them custom, and what is sold to the public is a "consumer" version.



          How do you clean these mittens

          How do you clean these mittens

          Supplanted directly from http://marmot.com/products/details/expedition-mitt :



          Handwear Care:

          Hand wash only

          Hang to dry

          Do not bleach

          Do not iron

          Do not dry clean

          Do not tumble dry



          As far as what sort of soap you should use to wash them with, I would avoid anything with detergents, no matter how diluted. If I had to guess, I would imagine that the instructions are located on a tag within the mitt, but a good rule of thumb is to use a very weak soap that won't strip the beneficial properties that are designed to help the glove perform. With regard to what sort / brand of soap to use specifically, I would email or call Marmot and see if they have any suggestions as to a certain brand that specializes in a glove soap.

          How would these hold up for skiing?

          I use them skiing in cold weather and, let me tell you- they are great! Sometimes my hands do overheat, but then I just take the mittens off. The best thing about the mittens being so warm when you're skiing is that you can take them off on the lift and not have to worry that your hands will be permanently frozen by the time you get them back in the mittens. Even in bitterly cold conditions I can take them off on the lift and fuss with zippers or check my phone without concern. No one else I ski with has that option :-) .



          I have a pair of gloves that I prefer in warmer weather. I'm a huge proponent of versatile gear; however, I think that in those terms, the extra ticks of mercury you get with these warm mittens buys you more versatility than any one mitten solution would do.

          will they work for 7000+ (Lenin Peak/Khan...

          will they work for 7000+ (Lenin Peak/Khan Tengri)? Thanks

          you certainly could depending on weather and what activities you're doing, though they wouldn't be your best option. marmot has the 8000m mitt designed specifically for high altitude pursuits.
