I have always had problems keeping my hands warm in cold weather, especially my thumbs. I first tried RAB Endurance Down mittens; there were useless in keeping my hands warm in near zero temperatures, no better than my $20 mittens. Then I tried Outdoor Research Alti mitts. I have not tried them in below zero weather, only below freezing. I found that my fingers stayed warm but not my thumbs. With heat pads in the mittens, thumbs stayed a little warmer but not as warm as I hoped. I will not get another chance to use them in sub zero temps until next winter. The mitts are bulky but work well for snow blowing and shoveling . Quality is excellent and material soft on the skin. Customer service at Back Country was great.
