- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
My hands are ALWAYS cold so I am wearing mittens for running, skiing, hiking from mid Fall to mid Spring. There are tons of great mitts out there - I just chose this and am super happy with it. I like fitting the jacket OVER the mitt cuff, not the other way with a lot of big gauntlet style gloves and mitts. its indeed waterproof, and I can get away with just this one mitt for all cold weather needs. I would say they run a tad bit small, as an extra large is a good fit for me (I usually wear a large) without much room for any extra liners. After a couple of months of almost daily use it is holding up extremely well. In terms of warmth, durability, and comfort, i give it five stars across the board.
