    These are the best...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    So if you need Warm mits, order these, but understand that the liner is thick b/c of built in flaps for fingertip access - but breaks in quickly. I wore these for a week skiing at Jay Peak (VT/Canadian Border) this winter in 5 degrees (where I knew I needed the extra warmth). For the first time ever, my hands were warm, but the liners were thick in the palm, making the grip strange. I took them out of old thinner ones, but put them back after half a day when I needed the warmth back. Then they started to compress, and they became an entirely new glove. So, once broken in:

    A) The liners feel so good. Very Soft and amazingly effective. B)
    The thickness compresses after 2-3 days skiing, until it's not an issue. C), The design is brilliant with the access to the thumbs and fingers via flipping back the tips, for when you need to get to phones or gear on the lift... and your full hand is never exposed.

    Bottom line - if you're thinking about getting these for cold weather skiing, do it, and give them a few days to break in. You'll be VERY glad you did.

    Amazing mittens, but not for me

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

    I highly recommend these mittens to anyone except those who are looking to keep the liners on when taking the shell off quickly (e.g. quick goggle adjustment). I would not have purchased these if the description included "velcro" when talking about the liner and shell. 5 stars if this isn't important to you. (i didn't scroll through the first round of reviews prior to purchasing, another reviewer more or less said the same thing, liners are not functional).


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have abused these mitts and they have yet to let me down. I typically use them without the fleece liners and wear a 50-weight liner glove underneath. That system works well into the teens if I'm active. The Meteors are not dextrous (they're insulated mittens, what did you expect?) But they are grippy and without the fleece inserts, they're not too bulky. I use them for snowboarding and winter backpacking down into Sub zero temperatures. In those temps, my hands do get cold if I'm not moving.

    Fit is slightly loose. The shells are bombproof. Decent water resistance. Good cuff closures.

    Excellent glove for cold days

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Just came back from the coldest day of skiing in these so far: 10F at the base and -5F at the summit. I generally wear medium but got these in large as I feel at bit of extra space helps with keeping the hands warmer and makes it easier to put the hands into a fist to keep the digits even warmer. The folding liner design is great and so are the Velcro strips that attach the liner to the shell.

    A little large

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I am very happy with how warm these mittens are. I like the fleece liner that can be taken out on its own. The design of the liner is great because you can fold back the finger part at the top when you need more dexterity without having to take the mittens completely off. Which is good, because the only thing I didn't like is that the finger compartment is a bit large and impedes grabbing onto much of anything. However, I don't think I could have gone with a smaller size because the thumb is quite snug.

    Excellent mittent

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

    Went Skiing with these - 20 deg with 25 mph winds and 40 degrees and sunny - used with and without the liner as appropriate - I have Reynaud's - my hands stayed warm the whole time. easy on and off, and good gripping action.

    Toasty Mittens

      I have not had a glove that would keep my hands warm without hand warmers until I tried these mittens. Single digit and even a few negative temp days still didn't make my hands cold...without warmers. They run a little larger than other Mediums I tried. Dexterity is not the greatest, but I'll trade that any day for toasty hands on a cold day.

      These mittens Run VERY small

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: XL

      I have fairly big hands (just barely able to palm a basketball) and usually fit an XL. The mittens I received were marked XL, but I doubt that they were even a large by normal standards. I could barely squeeze my hand in and the finger/thumb joint was so short that I could not grasp a ski pole. Had to return them. A few years ago I bought a pair of REI XLs that were commodious and lasted several seasons.

      Gonna try not to lose these right away

        Very comfy with liners that fold back over the fingers AND thumbs so you can fiddle with stuff or text while keeping your tattooed knuckles warm. Oh and they even have little magnets built in to hold back the flaps instead of velcro.

        Perfect for my needs

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

        I bought these to replace some 15+ year old OR mitts that were similarly designed. I use them for Telemark Skiing at areas and in the backcountry.

        I like a lot of room in mittens and so I got the XL size for my medium-large hands. There is plenty of room, and entrance and exit are very easy. The gauntlets have a cord that tightens and loosens very easily.

        The liner mittens that came with the Meteors are too warm much of the time, so I carry them for extreme situations and use thin liner gloves, or nothing for the unusually warm winter we've been having in Colorado.

        The things that I like most about them are: quality (well made with good materials and stitching); features (ease of tightening/loosening, wrist cords); and versatility (using them, with heavy, thin or no liners).

        Unless your needs extend to high mountaineering, I would recommend them without reservation.

        Palm width runs small, thumb is tight

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs small

        Mittens with liners are tricky. So much about what works and what doesn't has to do with how easy they are to take on and off (as one unit) vs. how difficult it is to just remove the shell and then get your lined-hand back inside with a minimum of fuss.

        On these two fronts, these gloves score extremely well. Selectively removing the whole mitt vs. just the outer glove works easy every time. I was running a rifle range last weekend with these on, and it was easy to manage my various tasks including shooting with the liner on.

        The mitts have a huge tether string which easily finds its way inside the outer mitten and does not disturb. Hand warmer pockets, removable fingers for the liner mitt, and magnets (yes MAGNETS!) to keep the inner liner in place. Nice design. They shed water and dirt quite well and have a nice finger loop for hanging them up to dry.

        Complaints? The thumb is tight, as is the width of the palm. The palm is more bothersome, but I suspect that if it was really really cold, the thumb would be the bigger factor. Size up!

        Price is right for these, and they are more than adequate for us mere mortals. Mountaineers might look elsewhere...

        runs very small

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: Runs small

        These seem warm, but there isn't a pocket for a handwarmer, and they run extraordinarily small. I have large hands for a woman, but the large mens was almost snug.

        no more cold hands

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

        From deer hunting in northern MN one month to icefishing the next, my hands never felt the cold. The outer liner kept the wind, sleet and snow away from the removable liner. I love the liner feature, its easy to remove, for jigging your minnows, or a hike back to your stand.

        Warm and Comfy

          These are very warm mittens. The first climb I used these on it was frigid cold, but these gloves kept my hands toasty, even at 0F.

          The mitten liners are amazing. The covering over the main fingers and the thumb will flip back for dexterity, and are held in place by magnets. This is very handy if you need to operate a phone or do something needing dexterity.

          Good Value

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          These are not the top of the line mitts, but they are well made and work well for everyday tasks in the winter and are a good value for the price. I use these for shoveling snow, making snowmen, snowshoeing, hiking, and as backups when I go ice fishing. The shells have a nice gauntlet that keeps the snow out, while the inner fleece linings have some nice features, including the magnets to keep the thumb and finger flaps in place. They also have a hand warmer pocket, which I have used from time to time. I find the Venta membrane to work very well at keeping water out, but it certainly doesn't breath like Gore-Tex or other high end materials. I wouldn't take these on an expedition as your primary hand protection, but as backups they would work just fine. Overall, I really like these mitts and would buy them again.

          not so waterproof

            Shortly after I bought these, I spent a day on Rainier doing crevasse rescue training and these mittens got SOAKED. However, I was constantly taking the mitts off and on to manage rope, set anchors, mess with prussiks, etc, etc, and it was pissing rain all day long.

            I think these mittens would work very well during a climb where there is mostly sustained trekking with very little contact with snow/ice, constant removal etc.

            I found the fleece liner mittens to be a bit excessive as well; I agree with the previous posters comment that thin glove liners function better.

            First Impressions Count

            • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

            I got these gloves as a christmas gift for my brother, and on Christmas day we hit the slopes and he tried them out.

            You know how first impressions count? His first impressions of these mitts were that they were exactly what he was looking for! As he put it, they fit his hands great, (size medium on smallish average hands) not too big to use, but not too small to let his hands get cold. The liners are great, especially with the removable flaps on the finger that give him a bit more dexterity when he's trying to use something (like a phone or really anything)

            He's really looking forward to using them in the coming years, and it seems that they're going to last him a good long while

            Can you purchase these online and have...

            Can you purchase these online and have them posted to Australia ? How do they compare to OR Latitude Mitts ? Do they have a temperature rating ?

            There is a distributor of OR product in Australia which may prohibit your wish to purchase these here and have them shipped to Aus.

            Aside from that, the Latitude mitt has a full fingered softshell glove with an unlined waterproof GoreTex shell. The Meteor has a high-pile fleece Miller mitt liner--the fabric at the finger folds back to expose finger tips for dexterity--and a lined, lightly-insulated waterproof Ventia shell.

            I would say that liner+shell for both Latitude and Meteor result in a temperature rating around 10 degrees Farenheit. However, liners by them selves: Latitude 15 deg F, Meteor 20 deg F.

            Hope this helps.

            The specs say, "Hand-warmer pocket keeps your heat pack close to your hand when the temperature really drops". I looked at these in a mountain shop and neither the sales guy nor I could find a warmer pocket on the mitt or the liner glove. Where is it?

            Hi jbe,
            The hand warmer pocket is located on the liner glove. There is a square patch on the back of the liner that outlines the pocket. It is a small slit opening, and has about 3" x 4" dimension. You'll be able to point it out to the sales guy! Good luck.

            How does the palm hold up after use? I have a pair of mitts within the same price point with PVC/poly palms and one drag of the palm on some hard pack and it for lack of a better term "melted" off... Wondering if these mitts would hold up better...

            These will hold up very well. However, if it didn't, there is a 100% lifetime warranty. Any issues what so ever, send it back to OR and they'll repair or replace it no charge to you and then mail it back. All you pay is the one-way shipping.

            Wher eis the material on the palm of this mitten. Is it leather or some sort of fabric?
