Armada knows its girls rip, that is why they use many of the same molds for men and women in many of their products, these mittens being one! I LOVE these things. I show tough love to these gloves and they take a beating. Climbing around rocks, sharp ski edges, beer holding, and all around general clumsiness have not done any damage yet. Not even to the sticky palm side! nothing has flaked off or torn. These guys are durable! The fit on them is perfect! The insulation keeps them warm but not bulky, and the gore-tex has proven to work in wet conditions. I really enjoy the removable leash, they have saved me many times. The cuff on these is functional and fits well under the a jacket sleeve cut. No bunching that you can have with some mittens. The pockets are great for hand warmers, or anything else you want stashed away : ) HIGHLY recommend these to anyone who want a glove for warmth, looking good, and functionality during high level charging!
