I had bigger expectations for these mittens. I wore them to shovel some very heavy wet snow we got and I had them on for 1.5 hrs. My hands started off good, but by the time I was done, my hands were cold and wet inside. I will use them for the next snow storm we have and see how they work out when I run my snow blower. ;-) These run BIG IMHO, I got a pair of mediums as an extra pair for a friend/guest to use and I could use them and I usually buy and wear XL gloves. I may try a thinner liner inside next time and see how they work out. The stock inner liner isn't held down anywhere with velcro or whatever so you have to be more careful pulling your hands out. I grab the front of my glove and secure it and wiggle my hand out.
I have another pair of mittens that are older which have the Aqua Stop in them (sort of question their breathability). I like the Gore-Tex products better in gloves/mittens, but they are usually more $$.

These mittens are not only waterproof but breathable. There is a fleece liner on the inside that can be worn separately if desired. I got these for my husband and he really likes them. He will use for cross country skiing or other outdoor winter activities.

I've tried all sorts of gloves for skiing in the bitter wind and cold here in Colorado but nothing compares to mittens for keeping one's hands warm. These mittens are FANTASTIC for warmth! One of the best features is the (removable) fleece mittens inside the outer fleece-lined shell mittens. I skied all day with these for the first time just a few days ago and my hands were toasty all day, despite the bitter cold and horrendous wind. I even periodically swapped them with my little cousin's gloves so his hands wouldn't freeze off. I also like the drawcord that tightens the cuff around my ski jacket. I am SO happy to have found these mittens!
