These are what I needed for skiing on the really cold days we've had this winter in Wisconsin. I had experienced a touch of frostnip with my old thinsulate gloves. Although these are not as convenient as gloves, they definitely keep my hands warm. The liners are easy to remove. The liners together with the outer shell are bulky and a little cumbersome for skiing, but I'll take that inconvenience any day over frozen fingers.

Nice & toasty warm. Been wearing in the barn to do chores in -20 degree weather. Did a pretty good job keeping my hands warm. Only caveat is they really run small. Ordered a men's medium, usually wear a women's large, & the glove was snug. It fits, but not a ton of room. I think if I'd gotten a men's large, they'd be even warmer.

These seemed to be the perfect mittens. Used the sizing chart online: medium and large didn't fit my husband. Ended up sending back for a refund out of frustration. You probably can't go wrong with an XL.

I really wanted to like these, mostly because of the attractive looks. However, the glove within a glove system just felt "doughy" and hard to grip anything. Definitely warm but if you intend to use your hands for cold weather activities, I think you'll find these cumbersome.

I bought these to replace an aging pair of mountaineering mittens I use mainly as backups in the bottom of my backcountry ski pack. Mittens come in handy when it is super cold, when you need to use your hands for digging snow unexpectedly, etc. I prefer gloves for everything else, but it is pretty key to have mittens, too. These are amazingly warm, and yet it is still fairly easy to do things while wearing them, which is often a problem with big thick mittens, at least for me. Love the removable liners which will always dry faster. They seem well-built, similar to a pair of Grandoe gauntleted ski gloves I bought last year and LOVE. They should last a long time as they won't be my primary hand protection. As always, the STP price was the deal-closer for me. It would be hard to pay the suggested full-retail price for these mittens.
