Great glove, dunkable & warm.
In the seemingly never-ending quest for great gear I came across these. My normally extra large hands found a large to be a good compromise for my mobility & minimalist needs. With this size a pair of smartwool liner gloves (thin) is about all I can fit comfortably. I'd need an XL if I wanted to wear it with say the OR Gripper Glove. I finally went mitten when I just couldn't get the warmth I needed on the coldest of winter days. Hard thing to do when I value my dexterity. Long story short, I'm settling with both. They are waterproof inside, the outer fabric wets a little, but it doesn't transmit through. This is as good as it gets without spending 2-3x the price. Make your assessment depending on your use and need. This one is insulated, but I wear my thin liner if its seriously cold. The OR Meteor has a heavy weight liner which was not comfortable in my opinion, but the shell is better in that the palm material runs up onto the edges of the hand- Something I see might be a problem as I like to pick up trash in the woods and see working as the only thing that could damage these gloves. Wish Id went for the black as well as the light green is going to stain like no other. I thought about the OR Ambit, great choice, says thicker insulation, but don't know when its striped up around the fingers. I was going for warm and this is where I landed. I like that it has enough insulation for me into the 20's without a liner.

I'm really happy with these mittens. I got the green color because they were much less expensive than black. They are very nicely detailed and well built. I thought they would be a mere waterproof shell, but they have a light fleece lining and decent all by themselves for a suburbanite's purposes.

Warm And Toasty
I have had these gloves for almost two months now and they are perfect for my uses. I wear them on cold walks to work in the rain and my hands stay warm and dry, but the material is grippy and thin enough I can still hold my coffee mug. I also wear them on the mountain and they are easy to get on and off when I need to thanks to the drawstrings. Perfect snowboarding gloves.

Great mitts at a great price!
Gave as a Christmas gift right before a ski trip. They were used with glove liners and I might have ordered a XL instead of L because of this but they worked fine and I'm very satisfied with their performance.
