Outdoor Research Meteor Mitts
If your old OR mitts are looking a little shabby, replace them with the same tried and true mitten perfection of the Outdoor Research Meteor Mitts. These snow mittens are waterproof and breathable to keep hands dry during long blissful days spent skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling. The removable fleece liners keep fingers toasty and help them dry quickly when you hang em up at the end of the day. The liner glove includes a pocket for disposable handwarmer packets and has a fold-back flap that frees fingers for detailed work around the campsite. The wrist cinch and cuff cinch block out snow with a double barrier of pow-stopping security and the wrist lanyards are removable if you trust yourself enough not to drop them from the chairlift.

These are a bargain for the price, very good quality and a great design. The strings for tightening around the wrist and arm are easy to use with the mittens on

Received the mitts super fast from Altrec. Mitts fit true to size. Liners are awesome with foldback fingers and thumb. Shells are durable and have good grip material. Also, mitts are surprisingly supple - as much so as some gloves.

Another Great OR Product
Living in No California, I'm fortunate to be close to a wide range of mountain activities. I own a variety of OR gloves and mitts for various conditions. I bought the OR Meteor Mitts to fill the gap between my expedition mitts and trekking gloves. I recently hiked Mt Ralston (9280) on a mild winter day. Due to the lack of snow, the hike had very little on the trail and the temp as I started was around 38. After an elevation change of 3000 feet I reached the summit and right into a 40 mph wind with temps at 0. My trekking gloves got cold quick. I had packed the Meteors for just this case and they definitely came through. Within 15 min my hand were warm and within 20 minutes of descending my hands were sweating. These mitts are real warm and the inner liners have thumb and finger slots for using your fingers without removing the liners from your hand.

Like all OR products, these ones really make the grade. Awesome fit and construction. I think they run a tad small though and I had to return mediums for larges. Overall, awesome gear!
