Rated 5 out of 5 by from The solution for my frozen fingers I 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have cold hands I 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I've tried alot of different hand wear and this has been the best by far. The versatility of the mitt is what I like best. It's not for really cold weather but works well for energetic activities where you're generating some heat. Never had any water get through and good on wind. There's room enough to throw another liner in (such as a Mylar style) that would help with the cold issue. Great grip for skiing! Good thinking on the liner design with the magnets! I just put a small hole in one of the shells but that was from a hard hit with a staub that might've totally ripped out something else. No complaints!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good hand coverage Received these as a present for cold weather backpacking. Overall, they are very useful. I tend to keep the liners on all the time, pulling back the flaps when fine dexterity is needed. Once I break camp and hit the trail the shells go on, protecting my hands from moisture and snow. I like that I can pull the gauntlets up over my jacket sleeves and tighten them down. My only complaint is that the liners are a bit snug, and can get uncomfortable sometimes. Still, I like the flexibilty the system offers, and haven't found anything better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mitts, great service Had 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are awesome These 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very warm value Okay. I paid [$] for these, and have gotta remember that. I've been wearing these gloves for a couple months now, and I'm definitely impressed with them. The liners are very warm, and the shell is pretty windproof & snow/waterproof. Palms are very grippy, and I like the foldover idea of the liner, so you can keep your gloves on while doing work that involves your fingertips.A couple of points.-The liner feels very strange at first, like it curls your fingers over. It takes some getting used to, but I don't mind the way these gloves fit now. I can see why people complained, at first. -The gauntlet isn't very big. If your putting it over a thick insulator & shell, its going to take some doing.-No where to wipe your nose. I haven't found a pair of winter gloves with that ever, just XC ski & bike ones. It'd be nice if backcountry glove makers put a furry patch on the thumb to get the ice buildup off your 'stash.Considering it is all too easy to spend over a bill or even two on gloves, I'm very happy with this purchase.
