I've tried all sorts of gloves for skiing in the bitter wind and cold here in Colorado but nothing compares to mittens for keeping one's hands warm. These mittens are FANTASTIC for warmth! One of the best features is the (removable) fleece mittens inside the outer fleece-lined shell mittens. I skied all day with these for the first time just a few days ago and my hands were toasty all day, despite the bitter cold and horrendous wind. I even periodically swapped them with my little cousin's gloves so his hands wouldn't freeze off. I also like the drawcord that tightens the cuff around my ski jacket. I am SO happy to have found these mittens!

These are just like another Auclair pair of gloves I bought that were supposed to be for men & women...the wrists are way to small. So, I would suggest these should only be purchased by women with normal or small wrists...or by men with very small wrists. I think they'll be too tight on men with normal wrists...or women with large wrists.

Used these mitts on a recent hiking trip up Kilimanjaro. It was very cold and wet at the higher elevations and these gloves kept my hands dry and warm (although I did add hand warmers at the coldest tempatures). Good grip on the gloves although just more difficult in general to maneuver with mitts vs gloves. Seem to be holding up okay so far.

The thing I like about these mittens could be a negative for some people. They have a fleese inner mitten that pulls right out when you take them off. I like that, because it makes them useful as wet weather over-mitts for thin gloves. I've wanted a pair of those for backpackng for some time. I'm also impressed with the way these thigs are put together. They seem to be a lot tougher than you would normally need them to be.
