RATING AND REVIEWS

Warm and toasty mitts!

5

You under 15-degree mitts. These have been a life-saver this year in Colorado. They can feel a little bulky with the ski poles, but the adjustment is quick. These are super warm and easy to pull over your jacket gauntlet style, if you will. On SUPER cold days you can add hand warmers, but I haven't needed to yet even in -10 degree temps.

They passed the sub-zero test

Broke these Mitts out this past weekend skiing Bridger Bowl. Temperature ranged -10 to -8 degrees (F). Used a thin merino wool liner, one hand warmer, and stayed comfortable all day. For me, they run a little larger than my last XL mitts (non- OR), but not so much that it affect their ability to retain heat.

Great Mitts for back country skiing

Chronically cold lady finally has warm hands

Cold lady here checking in! I have terrible, terrible circulation in my fingers and toes (I suspect Raynaud's syndrome or something similar) and have never not been cold skiing in gloves, no matter the temperature. My hands were actually sweaty in these with no liners on a 30 degree day. With liners, I stay warm below freezing, which is seriously unheard of (for me). As others have noted, the sizing is unisex, and they do feel a bit long despite having sized down. I have a bit more difficulty getting my hands into the straps on my ski poles than in my regular gloves. But it's definitely worth it for the warmth!

Great Mitts for Cold Powder Days

Used these gloves recently for a snowy day skiing in Tahoe. They worked great, kept my hands warm and dry. Temps were between 12-16 throughout the morning, and it was windy and snowy all day (so much so that only 1/4 of the lifts were open, and the resort had to close at 1pm). Would recommend these. Didn't seem too bulky. Really like the cuffs that keep them attached when I take them off.

Well designed, but a bit bulky

I love the southback mitts, but a few notes: Should be worn with liner gloves! Not as warm as they look because of the way they fit -- its a nice thing to have some room in the glove but these are a bit bulky. Also, the sizing is UNISEX sizing so I had to return the first pair thinking they were womens -- my mistake but don't make the same one :) These gloves have been great so far. I ride at Baker and they are staying nice and waterproof so far. Not so warm that they can't be worn on a regular 30 degree Baker day, but easy to put liner gloves into for when its 10 degrees outside. Have to take them off frequently to do anything detailed, but the cuffs make this SUPER reasonable. They are my new dailies :)

Used these for service calls to properties that have lost heat in Chicago for the past two days of record lows. Wore a thin liner glove underneath and these mitts kept the -20 degree air temps at bay and helped my hands warm up after doing repair tasks. Bought them for skiing but worked great.

Great gloves but be sure to check unisex sizing

Super impressed! Wore these for a walk in -30 degrees celsius and my hands were perfectly warm! The only con is that they fit a little wide! But length is good (5' 10" female, ordered size M).

Warm, comfy and convenient

Awesome for resort days. Love the wrist straps - they don't get in the way, but I don't have to worry about losing a mitten while taking them on and off. My fingers/hands have stayed super warm and dry - plenty of room to pull your fingers into a fist to stay warm on the lift, but they're not overly bulky, either. Overall comfy, warm and keep my hands dry.

Good mitts overall!

Bought these for skiing because I have super cold hands all the time! Not quite as warm as I expected, without liner gloves I'm only warm to about 30 degrees in these, but with liners they seem to do the trick when it's colder. Definitely big and bulky but still have decent dexterity. Love the color, how soft they are on the inside, and of course the wipe-your-nose thumb :) I'm right on the line of small and medium in OR glove/mitten sizing, so I bought these in a medium and my liner gloves in a small, and even with liner gloves they're still surprisingly big-feeling, so I would say if you're on the cusp go for the smaller size.

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,
