Super Warm

Reviewed by N. Kirby from Minneapolis, MN on Thursday, March 8, 2012
The Mountain Hardwear Medusa Mittens are some of the best I've ever worn. The liners are basically thin trigger mitts, which I use a lot when riding my bike or driving during the winter. I spent a couple of days out on the slopes with these, then an entire day snowshoeing and never felt cold. I have relatively large hands (XL in Stoic seemed a bit tight, for comparison) but these fit perfectly.

One word of advice: Don't put the outer mitts on while still in the warmth of the chalet or your house. You hands WILL overheat if you're inside for too long, and you'll lose a bit of insulation, as they don't breathe especially well.
