        Overall

        The Empire Roman II mitten is badass. Warmth + waterproof + style = happy, happy hands.

        Performance

        I was never a big fan of mitts over the years, but after giving these a shot and experiencing the warm and comfy benefits, you might say I've converted. I still rock my fingered Joystick's from time-to-time, but if it's freezing cold outside or I need to get the grab, only the Empire's come out to play.

        Design

        Two features about this glove that stand out for me are the zipper on top of the glove that reveals a secret stash pocket (where you can store a host of on-hill necessities, like your lift pass, ipod or house keys), and the goggle squeegee on the thumb, which allows you to wipe the snow or rain off of your goggle lens mid-run with ease.

        Fit

        I've got pretty big hands (must be because of all the typing I do), and you know what they say about guys with big hands right? They need big gloves. I went with the XL, and it's just the right size, without too much space that will turn my fingers black, but with enough room to make a fist inside the glove the help get the blood moving when it's igloo weather.

        Durability

        These bad boys are tough as nails, just like the company's founder. Nothing makes me happier on snow than tree skiing, and I've repeatedly pounded through the bush with these without a battle scar to be seen. Be sure to slide your hands in a pair if you have the chance. You'll see what I mean.
