Ordered these and for some reason didn't see that they were heated.... I am a woman with a Mens XXL size. I had to order XL but they still fit and the built in heaters are great for this Minnesota sub zero winter... we already have 39 days below zero this winter and these work GREAT!

My husband has a medical condition with his circulation in his hands, with the area from the knuckles up turning white in weather as warm as 40 degrees. These keep his hands and fingers warm, including his thumbs. The outer material is wind resistant, increasing the warmth

These mittens are well made and very warm. They block the wind nicely, too. But the power packs for the batteries appear to be poorly made. The first pair I ordered had a bad power switch in one of the battery packs. Sierra was great in sending a replacement pair very quickly. That pair was exactly like the first pair. Well made mittens, but one of the power packs had a bad power switch. I contacted the manufacturer for a replacement, but they never responded. If you order these, I'd recommend making sure the battery packs work properly as soon as you get them. I checked mine with a multimeter at the contacts that go from the battery packs to the wiring inside the mittens.
Sizing was as described and they fit my hands well.

They seem to be very good quality mittens. Breathable waterproof membrane, waterproof coating, insulated, etc. I'm impressed so far with these and can't wait until this winter to use them snowshoeing. They are very warm even without the battery pack turned on. I'm only rating a four star for now because it's August and I don't know how they will perform out in the field this winter. But I believe they will not let me down.
Bottom line: Quality product, warm, waterproof. I am not disappointed so far and would buy another pair if something were to happen to this pair...like the dogs eating them or something.....

I will be using these to cycle in winter temperatures - down to 20 degrees, which is my pain threshold. So far I've warn these at 25 degrees, and hands stayed comfortable with heaters off; 20 degrees should be no problem. And they should be great at even colder temps x-c skiing. Mittens seem well made and heaters work well. I am excited to put these through their paces.

I use these mittens for downhill skiing in cold climates. They keep your fingers warm and add to safety as you are not distracted by discomfort. They take a little practice to learn how do wear, due to their shape with their battery pack, but nothing too difficult to manage.

I bought these for my boyfriend who was complaining about his fingertips being cold while skiing. He has a pair of Burton gloves that cost $70. He wore these mittens and didn't even need to use battery pack. Actually his hands were sweating in 20* weather. He's very pleased with these mittens.
