RATING AND REVIEWS

not a great fit/feel

2

The seam in the fleece liners was too uncomfortable. the liners are made so that you can flip the mitten over fingers but the seam was uncomfortable and returned mittens.

No

If you want warmth. This is the glove

My wife uses these for skiing. She gets very! cold fingers and these gloves seem to do the trick so far.

Waterproof warmth at a reasonable price

Bought these about 6 years ago as my snowboarding mitten and have been very happy with the purchase. They have always kept me dry, which means they actually do their job. Snowboarding at the resorts around Seattle means sometimes you board in the rain, and you almost always board in wet snow, and at the start of every run the mittens get a test clearing snow out of my bindings. I'm very happy with how they keep me dry. They've also held up admirably to board edges, and all the clipping and un-clipping involved. Very happy with durability, and I know that if they do ever fail and I can't repair them OR will send me a new pair. I've found the mitts to be quite warm. Again, boarding in Seattle the temps rarely get below the high 20s F and if I wear the mitts with liners I'm too warm. I often swap the liners for thin running gloves or wear the shells without liners at all and am quite happy. I routinely bring these as emergency mitts on mountaineering trips should I get stuck somewhere and need to hunker down. They're maybe a little light for that purpose as the shell is un-insulated, but they do the job. If I was buying something for that purpose I'd go with the Highcamp mitts or Mt Bakers, but I'm impressed with the Meteor Mitts' warmth. One thing I would do differently is size up. The mediums truly fit my hand and have been very useful. I think a size large would allow me to wear a wider variety of gloves underneath and since it's a mitten I'm not too worried about losing a bit of dexterity. As is it's a squeeze to get my size M Stormtrackers underneath, and I think that would be a bomber mountaineering combo if I could pull it off. Personally I'd prefer if the liner were a fleece glove as I find the fit of the liner a bit wonky for using my fingers. But as a complete system it works fine and is very warm. Overall I'm impressed with the versatility of the system and for a waterproof and durable combo it's done exactly what I needed.

outstanding and versatile

I have used the shells most of the time with a thinner liner instead of the fleece mitt they came with and still maintained ample warmth and dexterity. The shell has not let me down for breaking the windchill or staying dry in a wide range of precipitation. When needed, the fleece was toasty enough for an active environment. The shell by itself is durable and warm enough when climbing hard or just shoveling the driveway. If wearing the fleece mitts alone, they have kept me plenty warm down to the teens (F). And I can still manipulate a screen on a phone or easily reach in pockets for keys when flipping the hood over.

Great mitts for all conditions

Bought these mitts in preparation for moving to Yellowknife, Canada and have been wearing them for 2 months in the cold, damp weather of Ottawa. They are extremely warm and provide solid dexterity with or without the shell. The "flipback" portion on the fingers and thumb are a huge benefit for those little jobs requiring even more precision. Highly recommended.

Awesome without the magnets

4

Almost a 5 star product. I had to remove the magnets from the fleece liner to make them fully comfortable. The magnets got REALLY cold while I wasn't wearing them. Those pesky little magnets also smacked against my knuckles while I belayed my followers up, brushed away snow, or even during a celebratory high five at the top of a climb. They had to go. Other than that, these gloves kept my digits toasty while I was stationary for hours in -10 weather. They were even better when I discovered the hand warmer pocked in the fleece liner. mmmm

US

My go to.

5

I regularly rock these without liners, even on those -10 + wind ski days (admittedly, I run hot). I don't get cold or overheat with them on, and the fabric on the palms lets me work with all sorts of objects. They're perfect.

Wife loves them

5

For the boarder mom teaching their kids the sport, the wife says the Meteor is ideal. Hands stay warm and dry while the shell is on yet easy to get into finger mode when our 3 yr old needs help. The liner folds over and fasten by Velcro. Fingers come exposed while the liner covers the rest of your hands and the liners dry quickly if they get wet. But unfortunately she left them on the tailgate as we drove off last spring, so Santa is getting another pair. She just has to suffer a little until then, wearing socks.

Great mittens for photogs

5

Being a recent convert to the "Mitten Group" I needed a mitten with a liner that allowed me to work the controls of of my camera, dexterity is a must when changing lenses, batteries, and memory cards. The Meteor Mitts fit the bill perfectly. As a landscape photographer I find myself out in all types of weather, especially when I visit the Great Smoky Mountains. These are well made and keep my hands and fingers nice and toasty.

Just got a pair of Meteor mitts Where is thr heat pack pocket ?

Séamas

Hi Séamas, The heat pack pocket is on the back of the hand-mitt liner, the opening is on the index finger side. Thanks for contacting OR,

Paul

I am contemplating using the Meteor Mitts with thin, liner weight Motion Heat battery-heated gloves in addition to and/or instead of the liners for photography while on an Antarctic cruise (as well as for skeet and hunting in Upstate NY). My hands are 83 years old and covet all the warmth they can garner. Q1- Is there any reason why my plan won't work? Q2- Should I go up a size? Q3- What kind of heater would one use under the flap? Thank you all in advance for your considered guidance.

Hal

Hi Hal, Your proposed system would work, however, if you wanted to use the included Meteor Mitt liners you will have to size up. I don't believe they make a heated gauntlet (wrist/cuff area), you would probably have to use instant heat packs. If you would like to use the MotionHeat liners, we would actually recommend the Alti Mitts. They are our warmest gloves and feature 170g of Primaloft Gold Insulation in the shell, and the liners have 340g of synthetic insulation. As stated above, you will have to size up if you wanted to use the included liners with the MotionHeat liners. Thanks for contacting OR,

Paul
