Warmest ski mittens? needs to have cord wrist, needs to be very warm, needs to have decent dexterity, extended cuff a plus
hands have poor circulation need super warm mittens!
The Dakine titan never let me down back when I wore mittens. As an added bonus, you can pretend you’re dollo
Northface makes some that a super warm with everything you mentioned. I don’t know what the model is. Also hestra if you are willing to spend the money.
Kinco mittens 30$ at ace hardware. You will never have a better mit
Check out black diamond. Amazing gloves ranging from cool to Everest level mountain temperatures.
Hestra mitts are the way forward
Wife and I both have Hestra mits and no complaints, and she tends towards the cold side. Everything is cold but her hands!
I used kinco mitts yesterday for the first time and they stand up to the hype for sure. Only cons I noticed so far was the lack of straps (very easy to make some), and the leather/insulation made the mitt pretty thick and rigid, making grabs not the easiest. I’m pretty sure the leather will soften up over time tho
I am a big fan of Kincos, but I wouldn't say they are the warmest, definitely great bang for your buck though. And don't forget to get a tin of SnoSeal if you get Kincos.
Most important part of warm mittens is having a good selection of liners and multiple pairs that you can swap out as the day goes on if they get wet. Also making sure that you size the gloves so that they don't get packed out when you have thicker liners on.
Lobster or trigger style mittens are nice, but they do sacrifice some warmth for a slight bump in dexterity.
If you have problems with circulation and cold hands, mittens definitely aren't something you want to cheap out on. I have heard great things about Hestra, but ideally you go to a shop with good selection so you can compare side by side different mitts to find ones with the most insulation and best sizing. Pictures online can be pretty deceiving when it comes to telling how warm a mitt will be.
