- Q & A
I bought these on a -10 day at Crested Butte because my Hestra's weren't up to the task. I haven't looked back and the Swany Mitt has been my go to for the past 3 years. The interior has separated fingers which improves dexterity and utility without sacrificing warmth.
Bought these as a gift and they are PERFECT for the cold weather we've been having. They are so warm and toasty on those cold, powder days on the mountain.
Best mitten I've used to far
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
This mitten is hands down better than The North Face Summit series mitten for use when skiing. I was warm the whole time with not much need for hand warmers. My skin was always dry, and there was not any wind penetration from the cuff up my jacket or into the mitten.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
These mittens are like sticking your hands into warm clouds. Super warm. The inner glove is where it's at. Best mittens I've used.
Do these have a wrist leash strap? I...
Do these have a wrist leash strap? I cannot tell from the photos
According to the listed characteristics of the glove I found on Swany's website, they do in fact come with a wrist leash strap. However, if you visit the page (http://www.swanyamerica.com/p/x-cell-ii-mitt), be sure to read the top review someone post about their beliefs and critiques of the efficacy of the strap itself. They seemed to make some valid points you might want to consider before you go forth with a purchase.
I've included a picture taken from the foregoing website that displays the wrist leash protruding from the glove, though which area specifically I cannot say.
