The North Face Montana Mitt
Price Paid: $60
I've had the Montana Mitts in the past and just bought a new pair. I brought them home only to find out they don't fit over my jacket cuff without tucking it in! Not like the previous style I had that fit right over the cuff. Not a good design.
Contacted TNF and they said it is preferred to wear your jacket over the top. Are you kidding me?! Not in my experience! Where will the snow go and how do you tighten the velcro on your jacket while wearing mitts??? Poor idea.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The North Face Men's Montana Mitten provides warmth and comfort for your ski day at the resort. A waterproof breathable HyVent insert keeps your fingers comfortable and well-protected from powder and corduroy. Its durable synthetic leather palm has 100g Heatseeker insulation underneath for warmth in wintertime and 150g Heatseeker insulation at the back of your hand where you need warmth the most. The Montana has a nylon shell for durability and a polyester lining for comfort. Its full-coverage gauntlet makes sure you don't get snow around your wrists. The North Face built this glove from the inside out for a five-dimensional sizing that gives you an ideal fit no matter the shape of your hand. Radiametric Articulation means your fingers get the natural motion they need while you glide through trees. A fourchette-box finger construction prevents your fingers from numbing on the coldest days at the resort, and a removable Wrist Oven leash allows you to insert handwarmers in the gauntlet to keep your wrists warm.

All-around, all-mountain snowsports mitten for cold days at the resort. Designed with a waterproof, breathable, HyVent 2L fabric at exterior, insulated mitt features slightly different amounts of insulation at palm and back of hand for warmth and mobility where it counts.
- The North Face refers to the men's version
Waterproof for the untracked powder and superbly reinforced for the cast-iron corduroy, The North Face Men's Montana Mitts have a waterproof and breathable HyVent insert wrapped in plenty of abrasion-resistant synthetic gripper reinforcement material on the outside. It's loaded with the same high-end features found on more expensive ski gloves and mitts (goggle wipes, nose wipes, and stash pocket for extra wipes) without sending your skiing, climbing and snowboarding budget into double-diamond difficulties. The overall glove construction has an articulated profile for enhanced hand mobility and the Heatshield insulation doesn't overly muffle your sense of dexterity.
