Fantastic for standing still in below-freezing temperatures!

So many winter clothing items are designed for active use, such as skiing, running, etc., but it's difficult to find items that will keep you warm enough when standing/sitting still for long periods, such as watching outdoor sporting events (football games) or standing on a street corner for 2 hrs every morning as a crossing guard (my situation). These mittens are so warm that if temps go above freezing, my hands start feeling slightly sweaty! On more frigid mornings (we've been down to 19F recently), they are just perfect, with only my thumb feeling a bit cold near the end of my shift. One morning I wore those thin, stretchy knit gloves inside these mittens for extra warmth, but it seemed to backfire - fingers stay warmer when in direct contact with each other. The palm grip is wonderful, almost sticky. As a woman with a 7-inch measurement around my knuckles, the men's Small fits nicely with enough room to keep my thumb in the main compartment if needed on colder days. Highly recommended!
