    Outdoor Research Meteor Mittsis rated4.1667out of5by6.
    Rated5out of5byfromIf you have cold handsI have very cold hands and circulation issues. So when working outdoors shoveling snow or playing with my daughter most gloves/mittens just don't work and I end up going indoors with freezing hands too soon. These mittens, though bulky are wonderful. I actually had to take them off in 20F weather because my hands were too warm. They include a liner that has the flaps to expose finger tips as well. I love them, they're bulky and not good for driving but if you outdoors for an extended period of time they are wonderful and will keep the coldest hands warm.

    Rated1out of5byfromNot OR's best mitten offeringI couldn't find these mittens in stock locally, and had to mail order them. This didn't give me a chance to try them on before purchasing, big mistake. There were 2 immediately uncovered problems: 1) The liner design that allows you to flip open the finger and thumbs for added dexterity (when the liners are used separately) is clever, as is the use of small magnets to keep them open. Unfortunately the magnets in the thumbs are located just between the knuckle and fingernail, very uncomfortable feeling. 2) Right out of the packaging, before even using the mittens the first time, I found split seams. They just simply weren't sewn together correctly at the factory. Overall I was pretty unimpressed with these - poor design and poor manufacturing. I like the OR brand and ended up going with the Mt. Baker mitts which I'm very happy with. If your'e debating between the two, let me suggest you go straight for them and skip these Meteor mitts

    Rated5out of5byfromThese are awesomeThese are the perfect waterproof mitten. I personally like the mitten style to keep my hands warmer than finger style. I use them for snowboarding as well as hiking/backpacking in snow/rain conditions. Been using these for at least 8 years and been thru a number of other gloves, and these have survived without any damage. They have a thin layer of insulation on the inside that make them more comfortable and warm, without adding any bulk. The draw string cinch system is perfect for keeping the rain and snow out too. I wear a thin pair of liners under these and pull them off easily if I need to adjust something that is too small for my fingers to grip. But the padding on the outside is also great for holding trekking poles, making strap adjustments on your pack, etc. They make a great light weight shell if you are hiking long distances in the rain. I love these.

    Rated5out of5byfromThe solution for my frozen fingersI am a bicycle commuter with mild to moderate Reynaud's phenomenon. I have tried multiple solutions to continue biking to work when the weather gets cold, but always had icy white fingers by the time I got to work. My commute is 9.5 miles in traffic. I have previously tried polypro liners, ski gloves, etc. These mittens are the first thing that have worked. I can shift gears and brake just fine. I highly recommend them to any others who feel they have to give up biking when the weather gets freezing because of Reynaud's. I look ridiculous bundled up on the bike, but now my hands actually function when I get to work. I'm a surgeon so that is key!

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat mitts, great serviceHad previous OR overmitts which sadly lost after a dozen years use and still in great shape. Had great results with those using the shell for wind, water protection riding bikes in winter, canoeing in the early spring, cross country skiing. Liners and shells when more warmth is needed downhill skiing, extended winter hikes, etc. Bought these as a replacement and used once to bike in Yellowstone this late October. I just used the liners and was thinking that was overkill until I noticed my wife shaking out her hands trying to get her circulation flowing again. Gave her the shells to use and she cheered right up. Finished the ride and promptly lost one of the liners. Went to REI to buy a repacement and was disappointed to learn REI does not carry a replacement liner. The salesperson offered to call OR for me thinking they would have one for sale. Turns out they don't. Instead customer service at OR offered to replace the mitts entirely. Let me repeat; I lost my overmitts (twice) and OR offered to send a new pair to me, just to be nice. You just don't get that kind of customer service anymore...in fact, I am not sure you ever did. Two great companies and a great pair of mitts that are warm, versatile and more than you ever need. Thanks OR, thanks REI.
