I love these gloves. In fact, I painted my walls with them and I couldn't feel the wet paint through them so I'm happy they are so liquid proof.
I would recommend this product.

I was glad that I got these mittens on sale. If I had paid the suggested $120 retail, I would have brought them back. I was expecting something that would keep my hands really warm and they are average at best. My hands have even gotten cold wearing these when it was 30 degrees out side.

While the insulating quality is good and while I would recommend these mittens for other people, I had to return these mittens because they were too tight at the wrists and had no adjustment to make them looser. For me the tightness caused my syptoms of carpal tunnel t worse.
I would recommend this product.

I have always used Mitts when skiing but in recent years I have been using gloves. Mitts keep your hands much warmer and you still have the versitility to use zippers and hold poles. Since these new mitts are completely waterproof and have Omni Heat my hands will never be cold.
I would recommend this product.

These mittens are extremely warm. I used them while walking across Lake Superior. The temperature was about zero degrees fahrenheit. My hands never got cold. I would recommend these mittens to anyone. They are extremely comfortable and warm.
I would recommend this product.

These mittens are awesome. The waterproofing works beautifully, yet the lining is light enough that you can still have the use of your hands. If you put them on when your hands are warm, then they will stay warm all day. They do have a snug fit, but I prefer that to a baggy mitten.

I just did a snowshoeing trip with my camera.. It was -5 out. I would have to pull out my hands to operate the camera. They would get numb, but once I put them back into the mitten, it didn't take long to warm back up. Fantastic product
Activities: Snowshoeing
I would recommend this product.
