As this is the end of April, I will not have the opportunity to put these new mitts to the test for a while so I cannot comment as to their warmth. My initial impression is that they are well-made out of quality materials. The only complaint I would have is the sizing. I ordered according to the measurements online and would say they feel small, not enough that I am going to return them, but you may want to think of ordering up if you’re between two sizes.
Gordini Polar II Mittens. My understanding is they are mainly the same as the newer Polar Mittens. Quality and insulation levels appear very good. Gordini gloves and mitts tend to run small. I normally take an XL but found this a little short with my fingers pushing some against the end. I returned them. Thereafter I purchased an XXL. It was still a tad short but OK and am keeping them. Have not used them outdoors yet so cannot comment on waterproof aspect.
One thing I do like is compared to some other mittens I have they are not overly bulky for the insulation level which makes them easier to use with straps on my hiking poles.
These gloves are the best I’ve had the pleasure of purchasing. I live 9000 feet up in the Rocky Mountains. I always have to deal with obscene wind and other extreme conditions. These mitts keep my digits warm and dry. Even in negative temps they don’t disappoint, yesterday it was negative nine degrees and my hands where still warm and dry! Make the purchase, just do it.
I work at a local Ski And Board Resort in Washington. Cold Temps a lot and High Winds at times. I have finally found a pair of Mittens that do the job they were intended to do. I switched from the just under $200 glove that did not keep my hands warm at all to the Polar 2 Mitt. These are amazing in that they do exactly what they advertised to do. Super happy with the product and would recommend these to anyone who is searching for warmth and comfort. No need for hand warmers ( did that and my hands started to sweat) at all. Great product at a fair price !
