I was a little wary of these mittens at first, but after skiing in them on a powder day, I was wary no more! Just like other reviews have said, these mittens are nice and plush on the inside without being too fluffy. They also do an excellent job keeping my hands warm. I wear a thumb brace when I ski, so there's not enough room for the liners, but I haven't felt that I have REALLY needed the liners yet. One thing that I really like about these gloves is that the cinch cord is underneath the cuff. It works nicely and it doesn't look as dorky when you wear the gauntlet part of the glove on the outside of your jacket. Good job Dakine!
