These are good-looking mitts, dressy, with a nice texture, they would do well in moderate temperatures (my guess, 25F and up). The pattern of the mitt is better-looking than what you're seeing on the picture. However, there are a few issues. The pair I received had left thumb with a very thin fur, almost none at the tip, which I suppose is a part of being "seconds". The size of the mitt was completely off. The ordered Large size barely fit my Small hand, leaving no space for the liner. I see these mitts to be suitable for a casual wear (work, shopping, city walks) but not for an active outdoor life (as an extra pair of warm mitts in the pack on winter hikes) - as long as you find the right size and a pair without defects.

I thought these would be warm and dry. They are to a point. Once they get wet, forget it. If you are just going to drive in them, they are fine. just don't get them wet cause the dye runs all over your fingers and all over whatever you pick up. They are not for outdoor chores, not for snow shoeing, skiing etc. They are short so the snow flies in at the wrist. If you never get them wet, then they won't shrink. I have two pair of the black ones and I made the mistake of putting a pair of wet ones by the wood stove. They are even shorter now.
So for fashion, going around town, errands etc, fine. For serious outdoors, look elsewhere. Don't Get Them Wet!
I thought Auclair was a top brand but maybe not in everything they make.

I bought two pairs of these mittens, one to keep for myself and one to give as a gift. The first pair I opened were great. They were nice and warm and the lambswool lining was nice and thick. When I opened the bag on the second pair I thought it only contained 1 mitten that's how thin they were. Not only that but one side had not been sewn all the way to the end. Very shoddy workmanship. I would return them but with the shipping coast to return them it's not worth it.

My reason for only 3 stars is due to the lower quality of the sheepskin lining. These mittens will keep your hands warm, the price was very good, but I'm unsure if they will last as long as real sheepskin should.

Ordered these in two colors. The sueded exterior is very nice but the fleece in the black is rough, not soft like the fleece in the brown color. This may be due to the dye. The fit is just okay. The large is quite wide across the hand but the medium is short in the finger length. Overall these mittens are okay for occasional use but I wouldn't purchase again.
