Good but...

I really wanted to love these mittens and ended up liking them quite a bit. On the plus side, they are surprisingly warm, especially compared to comparable leather gloves. I also love that they are slightly more elegant than standard mittens. The downside is that they wore out VERY quickly. I got mine in the middle of last winter, and wore them sporadically that season and this one [It was a cold winter last year, so I used my ski gloves more often]. it's early January, and they have been looking dingy for awhile. And this week, I caught one in the door handle to my car, not very hard, and tore a hole in it. And the leather is SO thin that there is no way they can be repaired. So, they're ruined. While I really liked them while they lasted, the fact that I didn't get even one season of sporadic wear out of them makes them a very poor value.

Oh, and they run small, but do break in quite quickly (probably because the leather is so thin).
