A sleeping bag for your hands.
You know you've thought about how comfortable it would be to put your down booties on your hands once or twice. Maybe you've even tried it out. The next time the urge strikes, snuggle your digits up inside Outdoor Research's Transcendent Mitten instead. Filled with plush 650-fill responsibly sourced down, the Transcendent will wrap your fingers in its toasty warmth whether you're sitting at camp after a long day of trekking or cheering on your little one at his championship hockey game. OR treated the polyester shell with a DWR coating to repel water, but if you want added protection, layer the Transcendent under a shell glove for more weather-proof warmth.

- Q & A
Very nice mittens.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I picked these up for ice climbing breaks when my climbing gloves don't cut it. Very light and warm, my only complaint is that I find the wrist elastic painfully tight and while the seal is there to keep heat in the multiple baffles already seal fairly well. Possibly just got a poorly made pair, not sure but I trimmed off the elastic cuff, wrapped with repair tape and I like the fit much better. Not sure if OR is going to continue to make these but they are a winner, I would like to see a more adjustable wrist closure.
I love these gloves! I just got a chance to wear them during the first snow this year and they kept my hands so toasty and warm! Even after taking my hands out to futz with my phone and camera, I could pop my hands right back in and they were immediately warm!
Your hands will thank you!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I purchased these for shoulder season backpacking and to use as a liner in some shell mitts I have had for a while. I have used them for backpacking so far and they were too warm, so I suspect they will be perfect on colder ski days. The weight is negligible, they are well made, the elastic is nice and snug, and they cover the hands and wrists. The palms also have a material that really keeps a good grip on what ever you are holding. Great design and quality.
Say goodbye to cold hands
I always have cold hands and have been so happy to have these mitts. They are compressible so I stuff these in my Hestra Heli Mitts on super cold days or just use them as a standalone. They aren't super tough fabric on the outside so I am careful not to overuse them without a cover because I am afraid of tearing them. I went with a small but am on the fence as to whether or not I could also fit into an XS. But love them and they are orange! Bonus
