Your pow day savior.
Your Outdoor Research Southback Mitts let you slash deep, Northwest pow and frosty Rocky Mountain cold smoke with toasty warm fingers. The Gore-Tex shell repels snow and rain with cozy Enduraloft insulation so you can power through nasty storm days when the rest of your friends fall victim to frozen fingers. Leashes let you pop your mittens on and off without losing them in the process, and the SuperCinch Gauntlet seals you off from pesky snow trying to find its way into your sleeves. Not to mention, these mitts are equipped with touchscreen compatibility so you can snap some killer shots on your smartphone without exposing yourself to the elements.

Warm Warm Warm
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
As a snowboarder, gloves are not imperative for mobility but you can spend some time hanging in the snow. These mittens stayed so dry and kept my hands warm all day long. Nothing keeps you out on the slopes longer than being comfortable in your gear. Thank you, OR, for a sweet mitten that keeps my hands dry!
Exactly what I needed
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Got them at 50% off and am very happy with the quality at that price. They are in great shape after a 100 day season. I sometimes get cold hands, the sweet spot for me seems to be 10-30F with no liners. Colder add liners, warmer switch to gloves.
