    Not pleased

    Gloves did not fit well, even though I measured and used the company’s measurements for fit. They were way to big and bulky to use in Yellowstone with temperature of -19. Even with a wool liner my hands were cold. I wasted my money. I do not recommend these over mits or the wool liner. Don’t waste hard earned money.

    hi Linda! thanks for taking the time to write a review. Alta Over Mitts are like a cushion for your main gloves (Markhof or Ipsoot for example) - they keep you warm while you're waiting for that perfect shot and don't need to use your hands :) If the sizing is not correct, just let us know and we can arrange for a size exchange :) cheers, Anna
    Good stuff

    Good service and good stuff

    Very Warm Glove

    The Over-Mitt is a blessing where I live, we can get down to - 30 (celcius) with a wind chill. The gloves are bulky so they can fit another pair of gloves in them, the magnet has a little trouble staying together because of that. They're worth that little pain for the warmth and accessibility for photography.

    Christmas present

    I am looking forward to using them. At this moment, they are boxed up and wrapped for Christmas Morning. My plan is to use them on the trail of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon at the end of January.
