Warm and cozy!

I am 5'2 and the XS was perfect and had space for my hand to move around. I LOVE them - the color is so vibrant, and I love that they clip together so they can't get lost.

Very warm mittens.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:

I have only wore these a few times while walking my dogs but they are definitely warm. I actually took them off a few times because my hands were almost too warm. Tested them out on a 25 degree morning.

Saved the day

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I freaking love these. They saved my fingers on a cold backcountry day. I don’t see them being an all-the-time glove, but perfect to have in your pack.

Great lightweight warmth in a small package size

I bought these along with the Commuter gloves for my outdoor winter photography. The gloves were for working with the camera, and these Mitts were to slip into if my hands got chilled. They are wonderfully warm, fit well (I use XL for all my OR gloves and mitts), and compress to nothing so they take up minimal space in my pack.

Very warm, runs large

First and foremost, these mitts are incredibly warm. As someone who typically prefers five-finger gloves, these have been easy to transition to and I don't notice a huge reduction in dexterity when performing simple tasks. They do seem to run on the larger side though. I normally wear a medium glove, however, these have a ton of extra room, enough for both hands if I could fit them through the cuff.

So warm

Great gloves. I have relatively small/typical size hands for a woman of 5'4". I got these for starting off on very cold days hiking or xcountry skiing to use until my body temp reaches my hands and they work great.

Better than expected at -30C and below

Recently took these on a trip in Canada's north. I didn't expect them to be able to perform next to heavier duty down mitts, but these came through for me to my surprise. It was an opportunity for me to test their limits where I had thicker, warmer mitts on hand, and these really did come through and impress. Even snowmobiling at -30, I wore these with no liners and while yes, I had heated grips, I was surprised that at 100km/h the cold wasn't biting through the down. My only complaint is that the thumb is a little under-insulated. The mitts are a bit floppy with all the down on the back of the hand that I'm not quite sure why there isn't more on the thumb. An improvement in my mind would be to add leashes. When taking them off to do something requiring dexterity, I had to find somewhere to stuff these. Durability wise, the silicone on the palm had some crease marks in it after gripping the bars on the snowmobile. I don't know if this is a concern or not, and they don't seem to be damaged, so I think it's more cosmetic. They're definitely not a heavy duty mitt though so I think this is quite reasonable.

These are my favorite!

The down mitts are my absolute favorite. My hands stay warm even when our temperatures in interior Alaska dip way down in the negatives. I bought 3 more this Christmas to keep a set in my car, in my diaper bag and in our ski locker. That's how much I love these mittens!!

Emergency Frostbite Prevention Purchase

Purchased these to pack at the bottom of my backpack when winter hiking in the New Hampshire White Mountains for emergency purposes only. These mitts are super puffy and lite as a feather. These will be perfect for keeping someone's hands warm in the case of a lost or damaged primary mitt(s) in extreme conditions. Fortunately, I have not seen the need for them yet, but they look to fit the bill perfectly.
