Rated 5 out of 5 by Snowmaiden Great X-Country Skiing Mitts!
The Women's Gore-Tex Mittens are nice and light weight and very warm. The material is very durable and there is an extra layer across the palm and thumb to prevent the poles from wearing through the mitt. There is elastic at the wrist to make a nice snug fit. I ski in the Eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan and my hands were nice and toasty warm all winter. They were a bit warm for Spring Skiing though.

My hands have always been cold. These mittens keep me warmer than I have ever experienced in the past.

I tried these out in the rain on the first day and then in 20 degrees the next. They kept my hands warm and dry.

I bought these mittens to keep my hands warm when I'm shoveling the driveway. The construction is excellent, but these mittens did not provide warmth. My fingers were like icicles after 30 minutes. I ended up returning the mittens.

The fit is good, but the warmth is much less than I expected for the price and the company. Though I love almost every L.L. Bean product I've ever bought, and it grieves me to write a negative review, I fear I must. For the North Country of New York, these just don't do the job. If only the insides were made of something warmer! Haven't sent them back yet, but I must.

My daughter teaches alpine lessons and always had frozen fingers. She said these mittens kept her hands warm, in fact they were sweating one day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaineShopper999 Super warm mittens
For someone who always has cold fingers and toes, perhaps even a circulation problem, these mittens were just right! For the first time I was out having fun on a Maine winter day and my hands weren't cold!

Well made, nice fit, easy to grip poles, but my thumbs froze while snow shoeing, walking the dog, walking to work. Sent them back and will try another style. Thanks for your great return policy, LL Bean!

I bought these last year after comparing mittens at several stores. These were by far the best value. They are perfect for cross country skiing and keep my hands from getting cold. When my daughter needing mittens for alpine skiing this year, she borrowed mine and loved them so this purchase was for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bridget12 Love the mittens!!
For a trip to Quebec City, I purchased mittens over gloves on advice of a salesperson in LL Bean store. My hands were very warm and comfy in very cold conditions. Love them.....
