10 Years old and still going strong


I've had this mitts for 10 years and wear everyday in winter for several hours. Still look brand new very well made product. I've bike rode with this mitts in all kinds of cold weather and hands never got cold. Best mitts I've ever had.

Who doesn't like red


Lighter weight than previous arm length gloves from other manufacturers. These gloves have better draw strings for gloved hand closures.



Still the industry standard


I used these mittens on a recent expedition to the summit of Denali and they performed beautifully. Professional guides consider this mitten to be the best on the market for extreme cold temperatures and high altitude. It is an essential item on any large expedition. Bombproof, comfortable, and incredibly warm, these are simply the best that money can buy.

Must have for winter and even spring or fall since it has a removable liner for warmer days. Would buy again. Bear pair of mittens I've ever ourchased!



Not tested yet

Awesome Mitts


Amazing Mitts! Just the insulated outer shell's alone are fantastic over liner gloves. Very versatile as you can bring just the over shells as backup, or the full set for extreme cold.

Hands are finally warm


The last few years I've been struggling with keeping my hands warm in normal (-10 to -5 celcius) winter conditions. I'm not sure if getting older is the problem as my fitness is relatively good (ok, I can run 20km any day of the week). I tried the STORM TRACKER heated gloves and my hands were still cold. But this winter my hands were very happy thanks to the ALTI MITTS. In fact when they got too warm I simply took out the insulating liner. I'm ready to tackle the 3000m peaks once again.

Very warm, waterproof and well made pair of mittens.


These are a very warm, totally waterproof and extremely well made pair of mittens that I had to return... I am an avid skier that suffers from cold hands constantly. I have tried everything from every brand of consequence and all of them have left me with numb fingers. In desperation I turned to the Alti Mitts and finally found something that kept my hands warm. In addition to my almost always cold hands I suffer from having small almost child proportioned hands and the smallest Alti Mitts left me struggling to grab just about everything. I dropped my ski poles almost constantly and couldn't even pick them up off of the ground without first taking these mittens off. So despite the build quality and warmth I had to return these since a mitten that won't allow me to interact with the outside world while wearing won't really work for my life style. Outdoor Research please make an XS size of this mitten. I didn't really like returning the warmest mitten I have ever owned because I can't do anything but walk while wearing them. I would recommend these to anyone with larger hands that suffers from constantly cold hands.
