Excellent mitt for cold conditions
January 05, 2010

If you suffer from cold hands like my wife then this is the perfect mitt for you. It's super warm and is an excellent fit. The leather palms are great for holding up to long term wear.

So far so good

I haven't taken these out to extreme sub zero temps yet, but these Nuptse mitts have kept my fingers warm into the low 30's. I wore an additional Gore-tex shell over these (the accompanying TNF product tag states "water-reistent" & not waterproof--I wouldn't want to risk getting down wet as it loses its insulting ability so would recommend a waterproof shell regardless in rain/snow). The sizing is definitely smaller & narrower for unisex--I'm usually XS if unisex, but was glad Altrec only had S b/c they fit perfectly snug. (My palm to finger lenth =6.25"..I sometimes even order kid's L/XL b/c they fit me better than adult sizes, but these were perfect). I had much better dexterity in them than I expected--they're not as lofty like its puffy marshmallow jacket counterpart! Will write another review once I test its warmth in colder conditions...

Perfect companion mitt for TNF Nuptse jacket (you won't notice the 700- vs. 600-down fill disparity at all). Superb warmth/insulation/wind resistance. I use it for daily commuting in the Mid-Atlantic (perhaps a little overkill) and never (and I'm sensitive to the cold) have my hands been even moderately cold. I'd never valued warm mitts until I got these--they'll regulate your entire body temperature and your hands will be sweating after a few blocks. A little pricey, but well worth the investment. Minor criticism: because of their relative bulk, it's hard to grip or carry items...but it's to be expected; they are mitts afterall. Runs true to size.

very nice mittens
January 16, 2011

been a ski bum for 30 years now, and I can honestly say these are the nicest ski/ snowboard gloves I have ever owned. perfectly suited for anything other than full blown mountaineering. the leather is more durable than other similiar priced mitts. they fit under the jacket sleeve as well as over..nice feature!

Down is still KING
March 08, 2007

As a consulting forester, I truly must have outdoor clothing that works...all day, every day. Accordingly, I insist on down mitts for truly cold (< 10F) weather. I've tried them all (been in the woods for 31 years), and laugh when folks tell me of synthetic insulations. Other than a pair of sheep skin flight mitts, there are no peers for down mitts. The Nuptse mitts are the best down mitts I have found in many years of looking. That is not to state they are as good as down mitts I have owned in the past, but they are well made and contain a reasonable amount of 600 cubic inch/oz. down. The palms are high quality leather...time will tell as to how long those palms hold up. Wearing the backside out on mitts is not an issue with me, and it appears will especially not be an issue with the Nuptses. A previous reviewer commented that these mitts tend to run small. I agree. Consider ordering one size up. All in all, if you truly need warm mitts, the Nuptses are a best choice, and represent an excellent value.

These mittens do not keep my hands warm!
January 19, 2008

I ski 3 to 4 times a week in sub zero temps and my hands are freezing whenever I wear these mittens! Adding hand warmers helps, but my thumbs still freeze unless I release them from the thumb and put them directly onto the warmer. Additionally, whenever I remove my hands from the mittens, my nails, cuticles and fingers are black! I washed the mittens as per instructions as recommended when calling The North Face customer Service, but the "black hands" problem has not been rectified. Too bad, for the gloves do have nice features: good fit, sturdy, easy to use cinches to keep them together or attached to your jacket when not wearing, easy to use wrist straps etc. However, I am returning them since I do not want cold hands that look like I have been digging in the dirt for a lifetime! :)


Excellent Value
January 02, 2011

Light as a feather, warm as toast, true to fit, typical North Face quality. Although down filled not overly bulky like the mitts of old. Particulary appreciate the shape of the mitt, it conforms to the shape of the hand reducing useless bulk around the pinky fingers.

Excellant Service !!

Product arrived quickly and just what I ordered. Any questions that I had prior ro oredering were answered promptly. Shipping to Canada was painless.
