Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will keep you warm and dry when all else fails Used these on Rainier this weekend, definitely a MUST when getting on the upper mountain. My other gloves started to fail after about 12500 ft, and I put these bad boys on and felt great the rest of the way. Also used them when just sitting around camp at cold hours. I love the removable inner layer, those alone are really warm and offer slightly more dexterity than having both layers on. the outer layer can be useful for covering your feet on cold nights as well! Love these things. I have big hands cause I'm a big 6'5 guy, and the XL size is very spacious. Probably could've gone with a Large. Taking these to Ararat this summer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very warm but no dexterity Very warm and tough mitt. However, it is impossible to do anything once you have them on. I haven't tried, but I suspect you could do little more than push/pull an ascender up a fixed rope with these. I CAB attest that it is impossible to belay, hold a beverage, undo a small buckle, or even hold a trekking pole reliably. I tried a smaller size and had the same problem. I am keeping one pair because they are so dang warm. When I'm ice climbing in a team of three or more and don't have to climb OR belay, these are great for staying warm while waiting my turn. However, they aren't practical for anything else, except, perhaps 7000+ meter peaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The search for warm gloves is over. These gloves are hands-down the warmest gloves I've ever owned. I've tried all sorts of shell / liner combos and these nail it. I use these for belaying during ice climbing. I can use the liner for the approach, then use the shells around my Extravert gloves on the belay. This combo is extremely effective at giving me the dexterity I need while climbing and warmth while belaying. I have also used them to ski and, well, you just can't beat the warmth. Great mitts, highly recommended. A note on sizing: these things are HUGE! Normally I fit a large nicely - -with these I'm using the smalls and they're still big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super warm I have always gotten cold hands, but not anymore. These mitts kept my hands warm in subzero temperatures and high winds, and I will take them on all cold trips in the future. My hands are a little restricted when wearing them since they are mitts, but they are as dexterous as any mitt I've tried. The cord cinches to maintain a tight fit around the wrist and keep the snow/rain out. They have been fully waterproof in my experience. On the fit, they run true to size and maybe a tad bigger. I chose these over the Arcteryx mitts, mostly because of the better gripping ability I found in the OR mitts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Elastic on back of Mitten is bad set up I have Alti mitts as well as the Mt. Baker and the strap on the back of the Mt. Baker make them a much better glove: easier to get on and off, ability to cinch them up if you want. The Alti Mitts with the elastic make it nearly impossible to get you hand in and out and causes the liner to come loose. Please add the cinch strap to these mitts and they will be fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great synthetic warmth So let's compare the Alti mitts with the Mt Baker mitts. The main differences here are the inserts (Mt Baker inserts are gloves while the Alti's are mitts) and the length of the shell (the Alti's are slightly longer). This means that the Alti's are a touch warmer but less dexterous than the Mt Baker's. The glove inserts in the Mt Baker's simply take up more space in the shell and when grabbing something with the Mt Baker's I feel that the mitt just moves with my hand better; my fingers swim a little in the Alti's but that's part of what makes them so warm. That said, I wear a medium in both but noticed that the Alti's feel roomier (likely because they're mitts) which means that, if you're snug in the Mt Baker's, the Alti's will be perfect. That said, both are awesome mitts for active pursuits in cold weather environments. Additionally, if you find that the mitts are getting too warm you can sub out the fleece insert for a thinner layer. I'm pretty sure these are the perfect modular glove/mitt system. I would buy them again but I hope I don't have to because they're not cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, waterproof mitts Tested for a week in late November on Lake Ontario, Canada. On the water all day in wind, rain, waves and spray in near freezing temps. Mitts kept my hands dry and warm all day. Long adjustable cuffs help keep water out while wearing a dry-suit. Loss of dexterity with fingers as you cannot operate zippers, but this is a very small trade-off for being warm. Some water would eventually leak in through the cuff, but even when damp hands were still warm. Excellent go to choice for extreme wet and cold conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomber Mitts These are amazing mitts. I can't believe how warm they are with the puffy liner and the lined shell. In fact, if I were to criticize these at all I would suggest they're too warm, haha! Realistically, that's not a possibility for a normal person, but if you're hot-blooded like me, you could find yourself keeping these in the pack for a windy summit attack, bad storm, or 6,000m peak. Then again, sometimes you've nothing to prove and just want to feel snug and warm, and for that the liners to these can't be beat. I will probably never purchase a different mitt, just replace these--if they ever wear out. Super rugged and durable, and great features back up the warmth and weather-proofing, and the high cuffs will keep anything and everything out.
