My fingers blanch and get cold easily due to a former frostnip mishap. These mittens are my second pair---I dropped one mitten over a waterfall while taking a picture. They were my favorite mittens. I wore them all last winter. I was soooo.. happy that Sierra Trading Post still had some. They did get wet last year on a hike with prolonged contact with heavy snow but did dry and worked just as well for warmth after that. I still prefer them for my hikes and are so soft and comfy in my fingers. I can still hold hiking poles well and I still prefer them for my winter hikes.
