        Overall

        The overall design and materials could be better in this glove for the price. However, It performs as it should for a high end mitt, in very cold days. 

        Performance

        Performs incredibly well. This is the warmest mitt/glove on the market. Your hands will stay super warm all day long, you may even sweat. They do breath fairly well however. The palm is leatherish while the backs are Gore-tex(backs feel like sleeping bag material). Dexterity is ok, but what can you expect from a mitt?

        Design

        Well made glove for the cost. But for 100 bucks I would have like to see an all leather glove with more secure stitching at weak points. More mitts should have the internal setup as these gloves. I love having my fingers seperated, gives a glove feel with warmth of a mitt.

        Value

        One of the most expensive mitts out right now. It is the warmest mitt you may ever use. You can find similiar mitts that come close to warmth/dexterity/materials for much cheaper. For 100 I would like to see all leather.  

        Fit

        Fits a bit small width wise. Would recommend 1 size up. There is individual finger compartments for your fingers within the mitt.

        Durability

        I have yet to put these mitts through a full workout but them seem to hold together well enough. While the palms seem sturdy the backs of the glove look weak and would easily rip if caught on something sharp.
