My mistake. I wanted an insulated mitten that was better than the polar-fleece mittens I already have with a flap for getting your fingers and thumb out to handle things. I had never tried a fingerless glove with a finger flap, which is what these are. Bottom line, you have four fingers for doing things, but your thumb is stuck in the glove. Without an opposable thumb, you are really clumsy trying to pick things up. This design works if you are simply pulling a trigger, in which case you really only need one finger exposed. Because it is a fingerless glove with a finger flap, if it is cold outside, your fingers will never be able to warm up inside the flap because all of the heat from the palm of your hand is inside the fingerless glove. Poor li'l ole fingers just haf'ta figure out how to warm themselves, since the flap merely keeps the wind off of 'em. I'm sending these back.
