Customer Reviews

Excellent (Review by California)

I was tired of freezing hands and layering running gloves with snowboarding gloves to find that even that would leave my hands vulnerable and painfully cold. This was me in the Eastern Sierra Nevada, I swear I could layer up my down jackets, shells and pants but my poor poor hands would hurt!
I am a woman, my hands are the type to always freeze no matter what and on top of that I have a cross between big hands for a girl and moderately average sized if I were a guy type of hands. I decided to give these giant mittens a try and my gosh I'll be darned my hands are so very pleased. I am so glad I went through with this purchase as I was reluctant with the price but sometimes you gotta think about yourself and your backcountry comfort. Who would have thought!? #handsarehappy

Kept My Finger Warm! (Review by Tom)

This mitten, which is actually two mittens per hand, kept the fourth finger of my right hand warm - despite this finger suddenly developing poor circulation. This finger gets "white" from only a little coldness, when all other nine fingers are OK. (Most likely due to ulnar neuropathy.) I waited to post this review until I subjected the mittens to a good test: Bicycling 22 miles on the American River bike trail, 28 degrees F, from 5:00 am to 7:00 am (my normal commute in the morning). When the finger first developed its poor circulation approximately four months ago, I tried three other mittens and gloves, but none worked very well. When the temperature is not so cold, such as 40 or 50 degrees, I remove the inner or outer mitten as required. With this mitten I can bike all year around. I have used these mittens since October 2016 (2 - 1/2 months).

As warm as they come (Review by Miguel)

Excellent - already legendary - gloves for when the weather gets really rough. Inner mitts can be removed if too much warmth becomes an unexpected visitor. Hard to picture any downside to these mitts. So far so beyond good; highly recommended!

-30 degrees? No problem (Review by Cam)

Couldn't be happier. When my gloves fail to keep me warm, these come out without worry. I've used them now on several winter climbs and they've proven themselves. I can even somehow grip zipper tabs through the insulation without a lot of fumbling around. I have a lot of confidence in these mitts.

The only solution to cold fingers in Chicago while biking (Review by Baba_booey)

Although I'm not on expeditions in the Antarctic, these Alti Mitts have served me well in my bike commutes (30 minutes) here in Chicago with temps well below 0 F at times (plus windchill).

I can attest to the effectiveness of these Alti Mitts in keeping your hands/fingers warm and comfortable. I had tried prior methods (extra layers, etc.) but to no avail.

After almost two seasons of use, these are staying warm, dry and effective in all climates. I'm hoping they will last for many more seasons.

Simplement incroyable ces mitaines! (Review by Sylvain, QC, Canada)

Bonjour, j'ai acheté ces mitaines il y a deux ans, principalement pour assurer en escalade de glace par temps très froid et résister aux conditions des sommets. À toute les fois que j'enfile ces mitaines à mon arrivé au relais je suis tellement heureux de me les être procurer. Elle sont incroyablement chaude et résistante, 100% windproof et waterproof. Et malgré leur dimension elle sont assez légère et permettent de manipuler une corde pour assurer assez facilement et sécuritairement car on sens bien la corde.

Awesome (Review by nfldkayaker)

If you play outside in the bitter cold these are the mitts for you. I usually only use the outer mitt with lighter gloves because these are so warm:) When used with the liner these are so warm that all your worries about frostbite should be extinguished. Great job OR!!

Best mitts I every owned (Review by Cliff)

The last few days the temperature in Chicago was in the single digits without taking into account the wind chill factor. These gloves are amazing. I was walking for over 90 minutes and my hands stayed warm the whole time. I now have 4 pairs of "cold weather" gloves in the drawer that I will never use.

Waste no more time, buy this now (Review by Elizabeth)

I pull these out when I'm hiking and it gets seriously cold. I have hiked and camped in -20F conditions for 15+ years with these mittens. This is the mitten you want. I have never regretted buying them. A hand warmer fits in them nicely, if you need them. I have used the outer glove by itself with a lighter glove liner inside them when it is about 20-25F. The out layer blocks the wind and is completely water proof. The inner foam liner has a little bit of velcro to keep them in place and it works well. The liner is long enough that it covers my lower arm and the pull string keeps out the snow if you fall and find yourself buried in powder. The inner mitten is flexible enough that you still have some dexterity. I guess my only complaint is that they work too well! Your hands can get hot in them and then your hand is sweaty. But then I just wear the over mitt by itself, which shows how flexible the system works. I am their #1 biggest fan! Buy them! Buy them! :-)

Wow! (Review by trail man)

The warmest pair of mittens I have ever owned. 10 degrees or there today and my hands were almost hot. I usually take a large so I can put a smaller pair of gloves in to keep my hands warmer. No need with these babies. Yes, they're a bit pricier but well worth it.
If your hands get cold in the dead of winter, get these.
Very happy :)
