    Total and complete warmth.

    When the temps are in the single digits, protect your fingers from frostbite with the Mountain Hardwear Men's Absolute Zero Mitten. The OutDry membrane supplies waterproof and breathable protection, while the lofty 700-fill goose down keeps your fingers warm and toasty in the harshest weather imaginable. The single pull and quick-release gauntlet adjustment is a breeze to use and adds extra protection against the elements, while its extra-long design fits neatly over bulky jacket sleeves. A thick fleece liner keeps your hands warm and cozy all day long, and the attached carabiner loops let you hang them up easily for a dry fit next time you need them.

    Great Mittens

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I used these mittens on a couple of overnight mountaineering expeditions here in the Wasatch last Winter. They are extremely warm and the OutDry membrane is pretty impressive. I thought it was become saturated and/ or moist if my hands overheated. They did overheat, but to my surprise, the membrane was dry and never disappointed. The dexterity in them isn't great (expected in an expedition mitten). The grip on the inside of the mitt is great for trekking first thing in the morning while still below freezing out. I only gave them 4 stars as there are some other comparable mittens that come with a removable liner that makes for a more customizable option for the weather. I do plan to use these on an Aconcagua trek again this January as well. I found them to be true to size.

    Never seem a warmer mitten!

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

    If you're going on an icy winter expedition, or you can't find any winter handwear that will keep your digits toasty enough, then look no further. This is hands down (pun intended) the warmest mitten I've ever worn. I've never felt a mitten that is softer, or with more loft. It has some decent grip on the palm and the thumb, which is definitely necessary, because this mitten is so thick and lofty that it basically eliminates any real dexterity. So just know that if you'll require more technical use with your hands, that this mitten is probably not for you. I was able to test it out in some of our first storms of the fall in Salt Lake City. The temps only got into the 40's, but it was very clear that this mitten is rated for much colder temps and conditions.

    The best gloves that I ever had...

    I am always cold, and nothing until this gloves kept me warm. I had them on my ski trip to Whistler, and it was cold (-10C) but i was actually hot wearing this babies. Everyone at home made fun of me that i had boxing gloves until they were cold and begged to loan for few runs to warm up. They feel like perfect down pillow, but i was able to hold my poles just fine and ski deep powder and enjoy long day on slopes. They do run big but and I already ordered smaller size and my hubby is happy to take "old pair" from me.

    Light, warm, but almost zero dexterity

    These mittens provide wonderful warmth resistance to the elements for the weight. They are also incredibly comfortable to wear, like pillows for your hands. They almost certainly need to be worn with glove liners. The tethers are easy to use and effective and the drawstrings are intuitive, easy to use and effective in cinching the opening of the mitten. If you need any dexterity whatsoever to unzip a pocket, place protection, tie in, hold ice tools, take a leak, etc. these are definitely not the mittens for you -- unless you're content to remove them and let them hang while you do your business. I know, all mitts make these functions tough, but these boxing gloves make them virtually impossible. It's even difficult to use an ice axe or trekking poles with these. Best for non-technical ascents in frigid environs and polar expeditions.

    Incredibly Warm

    Not for skiing or boarding.
    If you use these for the intended purpose, they are fantastic.
    Lots of down. Well contructed. Great technology with Outdry.
    Too bulky to easily use for ski poles. Buy a different glove/mitten for snow sports that is less "puffy". These shine for extremely cold hiking/alpine trekking.
    Have wrist straps so you can slide them off and dangle them to use your hands and not drop in deep snow.
    Wish they had a leather palm. It is hard to grab the straps to tighten the second mitt due to the bulk, but there is a soft gel-like plastic tab that allows you to use your teeth to tighten. A simple release tab is easy to loosen the cuffs to remove
    Lots of down on the cuffs too!
    Great product for its intended use.

    The Mountain Hardware Absolute Zero Mitten are considered as the expedition grade mittens offered by Mountain Hardware. I have received mine two days ago. Out of experience with mittens these seem to be very warm but their construction is very weak. When i first wore them and tried to tighten the wrist strap, the strap buckle and its attachment completely broke out. The left one seems to be equally weak. The Wrist strap is only attached by a sewing thread that runs across the side of the mittens and could have benefited from better structure.

    Absolute-ly awesome

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    These things are great for warming up hands, like a belay jacket for your fingers. After climbing a pitch of ice they induce screaming barfies almost immediately. They also make everyone else jealous.

    I got some MH Nilas mitts last year & loved most things about them. (which I later replaced with a pair of these) On our annual family trip to Whistler for trash talk & skiing/boarding my kids hands were painfully cold... Flipping freak out near tears, sopping wet freezing glove that had been DWR treated and were supposed to be waterproof already. The best REI had to offer. How the heck can I enjoy the trip when my kids are so miserable!? On our trip pre-check shopping this year I had a very clear memory of this. I did a quick search & found that these are even better & where on sale. My wife was like,

    How does the sizing compare to BD absolute? I'm a med in the BD's what would these be?
