Sigh.. they could have been great..
My boyfriend had these, but never used them because he thought mittens were cheesy-looking or whatever the reason. When he finally lost his gloves and had to use these last minute, it changed his mind forever. He raved on how much warmer his hands were and what a difference it was compared to gloves. Not only are the mitts insulated and GoreTex waterproof, they come with a removable mitt fleece liner. There is a goggle sqee-gee on one hand, zip pockets for hand warmers, and a little goggle wipe that comes in one of the zip pockets. Despite all those features and the cost, these barely made it through a season and by the end his mittens were wrapped in duct tape.. but they did make him a believer in mittens!
