To find your glove size, measure your hand around and over the knuckles with your fingers together, excluding your thumb.
Got these for a friend who had not had warm hands in the snow in years. She just back from a trip to the Tetons and reported complete warmth. Please note that the conditions were not as cold as usual in February there, but she had gotten cold in other gear at the same temps.
I got these mitts as an addition to my winter kit as well as for an expedition to Bolivia. I did not have to use them, even on 20,000ft Huanya Potosi. The fleece inner is super cozy and warm and the cinch and leash are designed as they should. I'll get to really put them to the test during the upcoming Ice climbing season as a belay mitt. I'll most likely bring them along on some winter backpacking/mountaineering as well.
Slightly over sized mitt which allows for a liner glove to be worn together to give you flexibility and additional protection when dexterity is required. Exceptional warmth with a clean outer shell to shed snow. Material is soft/pliable enough to grip your axe and general rope manipulation. I found the sizing guide to be fairly accurate.
Use Situation: Used on Mt Elbrus on our 3AM start in minus 16 degrees F. Hands stayed warm (w/o using a liner glove) while in moderate terrain.
I went with these mitts as they are the guide picks and I am happy I followed the recommendations. They are super toasty and love how warm they keep your hands. I have to fight the urge to not bust these out when they aren't really needed, because who doesn't love super warm hands!!!
