Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely warm in subzero conditions These are fantastic mittens, incredibly warm. Though I've not had them in as cold conditions as some other reviewers, I was glad of them this last weekend when it was -25C (-13F) out in the mountains. They are exceptionally warm and your hand warms up very quickly (from frozen numb, say after taking a pic or tying your shoe). I usually only use the inner mitten, which is more than warm enough for biking around the city in winter (which can be -5C to -10C) and I add the outer layer when out in the hills at temps below that. Haven't had them in the rain but they're goretex so I imagine they'd stay dry. Thoroughly recommended - just don't lose them because they're pricey!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! This was a gift to myself... These gloves are insanely warm, well built, and verstile. This past year in MN has been burtal, however it has provided a ton of great opportunities to really put these to the test. The coldest I have had these outside has been -23f with a windchill of -52f. I do a lot of winter hiking and spend a fair amount of time outside- both active and standing/sitting while ice fishing etc. The sizes run a little big, however just buy a size smaller than you think you need. As warm as they are, they also warm up fast... I tend to run hot so I will remove the inside liner and pack that away, and just wear the shell, which is PLENTY warm. In fact either glove can be worn alone and still be sufficient. Overall these gloves were exspensive (def. the most exspensive i've ever bought), but worth every PENNY! I look forward to many many years ahead!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OR Alti Mittens A very warm mitten. Probably a bit overkill but have used on Rainier, Adams, and Hood. Fingers were warm and sometimes too warm. Grip is very good for mittens for griping(ice axe trek poles)Starps are great for cinching mitt tight against your jacket. A bit pricy but a great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only $20 a finger First use of new mittens today coming down Ascutney in S VT. 9 degrees with mild wind and snow flurries. I have Renaud's Syndrome, so my hands and feet get cold easily; once cold they stay cold. Once my hands warmed up from having lunch wearing my liner gloves the OR Altai were toasty as I walked down. Worth every penny to be able to have been out today and future cold days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Massive warmth with minimal weight Hiking in the Alaska range yesterday it was -20F. My hands were toasty in these all day. Strongly recommend for any activity below zero!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously Warm These mitts keep me seriously warm and I don't need chemical hand warmer packets. So far I have only tested them to -16 Fahrenheit with a -40 windchill but they kept my hands nice and toasty after a few hours outside. I really like the adjustable leash option. It is nice because you can choose to use the leash or not. Some gloves have that big wide elastic leash that must be worn at all times when wearing the glove/mitt but this design is much more desirable. The SuperCinch gauntlet closure feature is top notch. These mitts are seriously so easy to tighten and loosen the gauntlet. It is the best closure system I have ever seen on a glove/mitten. Keep the warmth in and keep the snow out! I tend to wear these with a very thin moisture wicking liner so I can pull my hands out when I need high dexterity to grab keys out of my pocket or something of that nature. That being said, the dexterity with the mitts on is better than I expected. I can still start up and operate the choke on my snowblower just fine while wearing these mitts. If you are considering buying these mitts, do it. They are worth every penny and I am extremely happy with my purchase. If you live in a cold climate they are a must have. I could not be happier with my purchase. Your hands will thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Truly a great mitten. Hunting in single digit weather the mitten still kept me warm. They are expensive but definitely worth the cost if you are in cold temps.
