    New purchase, yet to use.

    Due to a currently warm winter, I have yet to use the mitts in the wild. I need them since my hands have very poor circulation such that hand warmers do not help. The mitts fit comfortably over my Tinden gloves and the magnets hold as intended, while the gauntlet over cuffs are easy to close. They are comfortable and certainly feel extremely warm inside our chilly house.

    Hi Allan,
    Thanks for your review.
    We hope the new Mitts will keep you toasty and warm during your future photography adventures!

    About two weeks ago I had the opportunity to use my new gloves while removing about 14 inches of snow from my property in 14-degree weather. Having to hold the metal handles of the snowblower in those temperatures usually leave my hands cold and numb even with hand warmers. The Alta arctic mitts over my gloves worked out so well, that at one point I had on only the liners with the over-mitt. Having the harness also allowed me to remove the gloves and let them hang instead of trying to hold them under an arm or between my legs while doing other things. I can’t wait to actually get out to do photography with them.

    Hi Mark,
    Happy to hear you're enjoying the new Arctic Mitts!
    Hope you will enjoy them during your photography adventures :)
    Happy winter shooting!

    Warm and Versatile

    These are mittens that work very well when the weather is cold and seemingly miserable. These keep my hands warm and dry. These mittens allow me to quickly expose my fingers so I may take a photo and then quickly coverup my hands. I also found the mitten carry strap to be useful as it keeps the mittens close and secure when I am not wearing the mittens.

    Hi James,
    We're glad to hear the Mitts and the harness are coming in handy :)
    Stay warm and happy winter shooting!

    Nice glove over glove

    Having photographed in Yellowstone in winter several times, I know about cold weather photography. As a photographer, winter photography can be hard on the fingers. While gloves without fingertips or with removable fingertips are great. Nothing beats a mitt for keeping hands warm. This Over-Mitt allows warm hands while folding back to allow finger use with photo gloves or liner gloves.

    Hi Buddy,
    Thanks for your feedback :) Stay toasty and warm with these Mitts! Happy winter shooting!
