I got these mitts and I was wicked excited because they look so cool. However I hit the slopes on a fairly warm day (30 degrees) and they were not so cool anymore. They got wet quickly just from normal carving and the occasional rest on the snow. The last day we were there was slightly colder (20 degrees) and my hands got pretty cold (esp on the lift, that was rough). They are not good for much other than kicking it on a warm, dry day.
