Black Diamond Dirt Bag Mitts

Black Diamond's Dirt Bag Mitts are a very warm, durable product at a spectacular price-point ($44.95 USD). These highly water resistant mittens are made with a goat leather outer which is built to last. Ideal for temperatures well under freezing (30°F or less), the Dirt Bag Mitts are designed for snowsports, hiking/backpacking, or general outdoor activities and chores. Note: Black Diamond also offers a Dirt Bag Glove counterpart. When warmth is a necessity, quality hand-wear is absolutely indispensable. Full review

Outdoor Research Gripper Heated Sensor Gloves

The Outdoor Research Gripper Heated Sensor Glove is a well-built, battery-powered heated glove that can make life a little bit more enjoyable on those cold winter days. The placement of the button that turns on/off the batteries could use some reengineering in order to minimize the chances of accidentally being bumped. Conditions:I’ve worn the Outdoor Research Heated Sensor Gripper Gloves for two-and-a-half months during the winter in the eastern US, with temps down to 5°F (-15°C) and combinations… Full review

SealSkinz Waterproof Extreme Cold Weather Gauntlet

The SealSkinz Waterproof Extreme Cold Weather Gauntlet is a well-constructed, warm and waterproof glove for getting out and about in the cold. Ideal for downhill skiing and backcountry ski descents when temperature fall below -10˚C / teens F, and as a camp glove in somewhat higher temperatures. Preliminary Review Sealskinz has provided me with two pairs of gloves to put to the test, these and the All Weather Glove. Sealskinz specializes in waterproof/breathable socks, gloves, mittens, and hats,… Full review

Outdoor Research Inception Aerogel Gloves

The Outdoor Research Inception Aerogel Gloves are warm, flexible, and comfortable gloves. They have become go-to gloves that I use on my daily snowshoeing and winter hiking outings. I have used these gloves for more than 60 days, in temperatures ranging from minus 4 (f) to 33 degrees, and in both dry and wet and snowy conditions. As the winter has progressed, in addition to use during my daily snowshoeing and winter hiking outings, I have used them while kick-sledding and shoveling snow. They are… Full review

Marmot Expedition Mitt

Product is good. Runs way large. Customer service is non-existent in trying to exchange. Purchased the gloves for winter photography. I usually wear XL mittens, so that’s what I ordered. Turns out the mitts run way large. Several attempts via email and telephone to contact customer service were fruitless. After trying for two weeks, I’ve given up and am left just sharing a review. The mitts are very good and if you can get them from someone reputable I would encourage you too. Do NOT purchase… Full review

Eddie Bauer First Ascent Guide Gloves

A very good winter glove for all but the coldest weather. A nice combination of warmth and freedom of movement. Very nice leather palms. Not waterproof, and leather needs to be treated periodically. Also, no gauntlet or leashes. For me, this is the glove that bridges between cold (30 degrees) and very cold (zero degrees) for most pursuits.  The gloves are insulated with Primaloft, with twice as much insulation on the back of the hands as the palm.  Regular price $129; purchased at one of their… Full review

EMS Men's Summit Gloves

The Eastern Mountain Sports Summit Gloves are warm, waterproof gloves suitable for all outdoor winter activities. Primaloft Silver insulation keeps your hands warm, and leather palms with synthetic suede reinforcements give durability. Note: The Summit Glove has been renamed Ascent Summit.  I’ve always found EMS gear to be very serviceable and very reasonably priced, so when I needed a new pair of winter gloves the local store was my first stop. The Summit is EMS’s warmest glove, and since… Full review

Eddie Bauer First Ascent Guide Gloves

An insulated, (mostly) leather glove which balances warmth with excellent dexterity. Adequate weather protection for all but the worst weather, very high durability and a perfect fit make this the best glove option I've found.   FIT AND COMFORT When it comes to gloves the fit is paramount. Like footwear, it doesn’t matter how good the product is, if it doesn’t fit you properly then it will not function very well. Many other articles of clothing you can get by with a less then subpar fit. If… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Alti Mitts

I’ve used my Alti Mitts for years and have found them to be of the highest quality. They have outperformed every other mitt I have owned prior to them. Fit and Comfort: Although dexterity is somewhat limited in a thicker mitt, I am more than willing to trade a lack of digit wiggling for warmer hands. I live in MN where temps often fall below 0°F. From my 5 years of experience with the Alti mitt, they perform exceptionally well in temperatures down to -20°F (assuming little activity—e.g. sitting… Full review
