Love the style and warmth of these, but as other reviewers have noted, they are very poor quality. After just a few wears, the stitching was coming undone. Be ready to make repairs on these if you get them, but they may still be worth it at this price.

Overall these mittens have a great design/color scheme to suit what I was looking for in fingerless mittens, and were the only one's of this style I could find.
However, the quality of the stitching is definitely questionable. Visual inspection of the finger flaps revealed how poorly they were secured to the gloves. And usually mittens like this are removed by pulling on these flaps, so I would recommend adding some reinforcement if you intend to use them often. Also, one of the buttons came loose while just testing their functionality.
These are great if you are willing to put some effort into maintaining/preserving them. And it's very difficult to find something similar, so I'm glad I found them.

Argh. Do NOT buy these convertible mittens. I love, love convertible mittens and these looked so cute and sounded from folks' reviews super warm--which to me meant these are going to be worth it. Ugh. They turned out to be suuuuuuuuuch an utter disappointment.
(1) The thumb does not have an opening, so if you thought you would be able to text with your gloves/mittens on, you can't. (2) The thumb is like an inch too big. Although I have small hands to begin with, this was plain silly. (3) With only 2, maybe 3, wears, the mitten cover in my right glove/mitten has come halfway off.

These mittens are so warm and fuzzy, I wish I had an entire suit made out of the same material. By design, these mittens are best for keeping extremities warm while still allowing you to read a text every once in a while. These are not for making snow men.
The only problem with these mittens is that the flip top lip is not stitched on very securely and is starting to pull off on the right hand mitten after a week of wear. It's an easy fix, but annoying that I have to fix it in the first place.

These are a good value glove. The lining is soft and comfortable. The only thing I didn't like was that it was a little awkward getting the mitten part unhooked. The loop around the button is a little tight.
