RATING AND REVIEWS

Superior Product

I teach skiing and I have to take gloves on and off constantly throughout class. I am outdoors on snow, all day long, all season long (I know great life right?) I never know what my students will need, what the weather requires etc. These mitts are very versatile to be worn, not worn (wrist straps are so helpful) with liners or without liners. I also use power tools when setting up for classes and these allow me to handle that job as well. Very thick, durable, and very warm. Superior to any other mitt I've used.

Love these mitts!

Picked these up for snowboarding & wintery hikes. They don't disappoint - stylish, comfy and durable. Only "complaint" would be that they are almost too warm (I tend to run hot while doing anything so this is definitely not a defect). Fantastic Gore-Tex mitts at a great price.

Great Mitts for a Day on the Slopes

As someone who's been outdoors doing things in the mountains since I could walk I say these are the best mitts for skiing/boarding IeI've ever had. As of yet, I've used them in temperatures as low as -15º F with no liners or anything and my hands remained toasty warm. I definitely recommend these to anyone who wants to get out there and take on the cold

Warm but not an improvement over the Southback glove

I've been using the Southback glove for years and figured I should try out the mitts this season. All in all I like the fit, warmth (not too warm) and water proofing that I"ve came to love for skiing and snowboarding in the PNW. But what is with the zipper? I'm bound to scratch my goggles and probably get my beard caught in it. Its a pretty stupid feature.

They are definitely bulky and uncomfortable to use ski poles with but keep my hands warm!

Do these mittens have glove/finger liners - or mitten liners?

Evan

the southback mitts have a mitt interior

Q&A_Admi

Two Questions - My hands are wider than long. I have a 8.5 circ. and a 7 length. Should I get the Medium or large? Also - I'm getting this as a Christmas gift so I wont be able to try them on till Christmas... which is over 30 days away. Can I still return them after Christmas (If they are the wrong size) or should I wait and buy them in Dec?

Eric

Hi Eric, We would recommend going with the Large due to your hand circumference measurement. With excess fabric in the fingers you may have difficulty with grip or grasping items, but if the gloves/mitts are too narrow across the knuckles it would restrict movement/dexterity. You may return the mitts after the holiday season. Thanks for contacting OR,
