Super Warm Mittens

Verified Buyer Reviewed by RJ Gooey from Minneapolis, MN on Monday, December 19, 2011
This is my second pair of these Gordini mittens. I haven't stuck my hand in something warmer and softer--it feels like you hand is getting a hug. The down does a good job insulating, and the gloves remain light. I used these on a 5 day backpacking trip in a cold December, with temps down to -20. These always felt sufficient.

The only gripe I have is that they are not truly waterproof. After handling snow for a while, water will get through. But they still repel moisture in enough circumstances to work well.

You won't want to wear these in warmer weather, your hands will sweat. But when it's cold, these are the first pair of gloves/mittens I turn to to keep me warm.
