I'm really happy with these mittens. I got the green color because they were much less expensive than black. They are very nicely detailed and well built. I thought they would be a mere waterproof shell, but they have a light fleece lining and decent all by themselves for a suburbanite's purposes.

Quality Overmitts
May 24, 2011

The overmitts I bought are true to size and seem to be very durable. I particularly like the seaming; it does not appear to leak. I wore the mitts over fleece gloves in 40 degree weather and rain and my hands remained dry and warm. I also liked the fact that the mittens extend up over your wrist so water cannot run under your sleeve.

Awesome Mittens
January 13, 2011

Very satisfied. I have always had cold hands and finally got some mittens after many pair of regular gloves through the years. These are everything I thought they'd be. I wish I would have made the switch years ago.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use

Great mitts at a great price!
December 29, 2009

Gave as a Christmas gift right before a ski trip. They were used with glove liners and I might have ordered a XL instead of L because of this but they worked fine and I'm very satisfied with their performance.

Weel made and not to expensive

Not to heavy but they keep the hands warm.


Great Ski Mitten

This mitten does everything you need for a great day on the slopes. Your hands stay dry and warm throughout the day. The tightening cord is great to fit the mittens right over your jacket.

Warm And Toasty
December 07, 2010

I have had these gloves for almost two months now and they are perfect for my uses. I wear them on cold walks to work in the rain and my hands stay warm and dry, but the material is grippy and thin enough I can still hold my coffee mug. I also wear them on the mountain and they are easy to get on and off when I need to thanks to the drawstrings. Perfect snowboarding gloves.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, very warm

great mitts
November 09, 2010

Climbed Mt. Marcy in new York in early November and it rained, snowed muddy conditions and was rough on the summit. These mitts were comfortable the entire time and perfomed well. They are super light and have good grip. However the one thing I would like on these gloves is a hand warmer pocket, I had an old pair of gloves and the option the throw a hand warmer wad a great feature. All around good mitt and would recommend them to everyone.

Pros: Ease of use, Great value

Great glove, dunkable & warm.
January 24, 2012

In the seemingly never-ending quest for great gear I came across these. My normally extra large hands found a large to be a good compromise for my mobility & minimalist needs. With this size a pair of smartwool liner gloves (thin) is about all I can fit comfortably. I'd need an XL if I wanted to wear it with say the OR Gripper Glove. I finally went mitten when I just couldn't get the warmth I needed on the coldest of winter days. Hard thing to do when I value my dexterity. Long story short, I'm settling with both. They are waterproof inside, the outer fabric wets a little, but it doesn't transmit through. This is as good as it gets without spending 2-3x the price. Make your assessment depending on your use and need. This one is insulated, but I wear my thin liner if its seriously cold. The OR Meteor has a heavy weight liner which was not comfortable in my opinion, but the shell is better in that the palm material runs up onto the edges of the hand- Something I see might be a problem as I like to pick up trash in the woods and see working as the only thing that could damage these gloves. Wish Id went for the black as well as the light green is going to stain like no other. I thought about the OR Ambit, great choice, says thicker insulation, but don't know when its striped up around the fingers. I was going for warm and this is where I landed. I like that it has enough insulation for me into the 20's without a liner.

Pros: waterproof, insulated

for a lite weight mitt, these R a good deal! i combined them with the OR wool glove/mitten on the inside 2 make a versatile set up, warm n dry when needed n removed for dexterity n breathability. the material works as advertised, the fit is snug yet not 2 constricting. the ADRENALINE MITT is well constructed 4 the price point. they fit on the small size so if ur a medium go with large.

Excellent mittens
March 05, 2011

I bought these as a lighter weight mitten to use on most winter hikes when my hands, which suffer from Raynauld's Syndrome are warm enough. I like to wear a thin glove liner and my current liners work fine in these although the fit is a hair tight, nothing that's a problem. The same liners work perfectly in other OR mittens of the same size so these are just a hair smaller but it's not a problem. The mittens are plenty warm enough without liners and work well. Excellent gauntlet which keeps out wind and snow and they do not come with cord "keepers" which I find get in the way much of the time so that's a plus for me.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, warm, no keepers, Cons: slightly tight

Not as warm as I expected
January 10, 2011

These mittens are comfortable and easy to put on, but to keep my hands warm in 20 degree weather, I had to put the mittens on, and then put my hands in my coat pockets. I haven't checked to see if the mittens are waterproof yet. Maybe they will work as spring and fall mittens when it's raining and sleeting, but not all that cold. I could try finding some liner mittens. That might help. If these were warmer, I would really like them. Everything else is good. I have only used these once since I bought them. For the time being this winter, I have to use my other, warmer, mittens that don't fit right and have other problems, but at least they're warm, and when it's seven degrees out and breezy, I don't want to get frostbite.

Pros: Ease of use, good fit, comfortable lining, Cons: not warm enough
