Rated 4 out of 5 by Deafman Nice Enough for Above Freezing
I use these mittens to protect my hands while I ride a mobility scooter to work. I am disabled, and regular gloves leave my fingers frozen after just 10 minutes (or less). These allow you to keep your fingers together, but the inside liner is too loose and makes it difficult to grasp things that are small. Also, they are not as warm as I hoped they would be. They are ok for above freezing or for playing in the snow, but not if your hands will be still for a long time outside, like when you are riding a bike or holding a handlebar on a scooter. On very cold days, I must use a hand warmer with them or my fingers freeze. I like the rubber palm grip and the feel, but the wrist is too tight and forces your coat sleeve back, exposing your skin. It would be better if the mittens had a flared cuff so that they fit better over a coat sleeve. Still, they are not too bad for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WearrightLLBean kombi mittens, flannel shirt
they are a little tight considering they are size large, over all they are fine. I also bought a flannel shirt that is great but for the price I would think there would be a little more weight to the material, I tried to log in to review the shirt separately but couldn't get in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by vtresident Size issue
Ordered a large based on measurements and previous purchases. These mitts felt high quality but I could barely get my hands through the cuffs. When I did I couldn't fully extend my fingers, the mitts were so small. They fit my wife's hands -- she kept these as hers.
I'm sure these are nice mittens if you can nail the size, but given this was a mail-order purchase I feel the sizing should be more accurately represented.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Criticalscouter Gortex Mittens
I am pleased with these mittens so far. Anytime I buy something advertised as water proof the first thing I do is turn on the sink and test them out. These passed. Then yesterday I took them out in the freezing rain and stayed as dry as a very dry bone(even when I put them in the bird bath). As far as the warmth goes I don't have any complaints. I find that as long as your hands are warm when putting them in the mittens they stay that way more or less. With the sizing, my hands are about 4 inches at the widest part of my palm and 7 1/2 inches from bottom of palm to top of middle finger. I wear a men's large with this mitten and still have a little extra room for a thin polartex glove liner. Overall I am happy with how these mittens have held up. I gave this only 4 stars because I do not know how they will stand up to cold weather and frequent use over time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MDIslander Yes, but
These are really nice mittens...but I ordered the extra large in order to wear a light pair of gloved inside the mittens - it gets really cold up here on the coast of Maine in the winter and my hands get cold easily. I don't have large hands, but the extra large were tight without the extra pair of gloves. I gave them to my wife, so I will have to continue the search for a pair for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RDR13 Great value
Wore these for three days of alpine skiing in upper Michigan and they were pretty warm with liners. I normally wear M but bought L to fit with liners and I'm glad I did. Palms are still a little big even with liners, but the wrist is very snug and I can't image getting a M on my hand. Great value. Never had to break out the $100+ back-up mittens I brought along just in case and will return those to a competitor.

Not very warm and a little small for size determined by LLB size chart. They did nothing to prevent my Raynaud's Phenomenon from occurring and they are not washable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by meatface warm enough
I needed something to keep my hands warm while shoveling snow in New England winter. My hands get cold pretty easily, and these have done well so far.
I'd say the sizing is slightly small, so definitely get at least one size bigger if you want to wear glove liners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aredub Seems Like High Quality
I am reviewing these before serious use because there are no other reviews. I will know more when it gets cold.
The quality seems first rate and I fully expect them to be warm and waterproof. I have big hands, not huge, and the XL is just enough. Until others weigh in with their opinions, I might be tempted to order one size up.
