I wore these for a week while photographing some national parks in the southwest in December. Overall, they worked well and kept my hands and fingers warm in single-digit temps. Glomitts are especially useful for photography because the wearer can expose the thumb and forefinger as needed, which is helpful with DSLR controls. Keeping the four fingers together helps keep them warmer than each finger being in a glove. Inserting a chemical heat pack into the finger section helps keep them extra toasty.

Some reviewers complained that the gloves do not block wind. I was skeptical when I read this, but there is some truth there. In a light breeze, no problem. However, you can feel a stronger breeze leak into the glomitts if you don't keep them shielded from the wind. In part, this is the reality of having a fold-over that can't be completely sealed. It wasn't a deal-killer for me. Also, these are not for making snowballs. Wool retains heat when wet, but these are not made for that kind of activity.

Overall, I was very pleased with these.

I like these gloves. For what I paid they're quite nice - even at the regular price I don't feel like they're a bad deal.

However, calling these "Thinsulate" and "fleece lined" is deceptive. The glove body itself is not lined with anything. Only the mitten cap that goes over your fingers has a lining. See my pictures of the inside out glove and cap. I can appreciate an unlined wool glove. And thus it receives 3 stars from me for being a decent glove. It loses 2 stars for the deception.

Another thing to note is that the fingers are not separated like they are on some other fingerless gloves. The fingers are isolated by stitching but it's not separate sleeves of wool for your fingers.

Awesome, would be 5 stars for quality... but looses a couple for the "made in us" label when it's really not. I'd buy something made in Haiti with no problem, manipulative marketing is much worse than importing goods (especially from such a relatively close location.)...

Update... actually revised my review upward because they are SO nice! And I see that on most of their products they say something to the effect of made in USA assembled in Haiti. Might be nice to update that here too.

You get what you pay for with these gloves. They get the job done but they are nowhere near as warm as I expected them to be. If you live in a place with harsh winters like I do, don't plan on these doing much good. I'm not sure where the four layer thing comes in because it seems to be only one layer of wool and one layer of thinsulate. There is no thinsulate on the thumb either, so it gets cold very quickly. These will keep you warm down to about 30 degrees Fahrenheit with no wind.

These are a good looking glomitt. The fingerless glove fits snug and stays in place during activity. The mitt frequently does not stay in place when I need it to cover my fingers and the thumb seems to never stay in place.
I put these to the test 2nd week of November, 2019, on a southern Iowa bowhunt. On Veteran's Day, we had our 1st snowstorm of the season. Unlike a tight-knit 100% wool, these things do not hold warmth when damp. Although "ok" on stand, out of the wind for the most part and while using a muff, when making the 3/8 mile trek back to my rig well after sundown, across open ground, in18 degrees w/a wind chill of -7, these things did not cut the mustard and should never be considered as sub-freezing active wear.

This is my third pair of these mittens - I absolutely love them. I hate wearing gloves. It makes it hard to get my metrocard out of my wallet or use my phone while I'm on the subway (yes, I could take them off to do these things, but that gets annoying when you're carrying a lot, and smartphone gloves are still gloves, so I still don't like wearing them). BUT, I have Raynauds, so my hands are always freezing, even when NYC isn't in the middle of a polar vortex. These are perfect. Super warm, surprisingly cute (I get compliments on them all the time), and I can't recommend them enough. They're pretty rugged too, but I spill coffee on them all the time so they usually look pretty grungy after a few seasons and I buy a new pair.
One note - there's a little velcro square to hold the flap open and I find it pretty ugly so I always pull the stitches out and remove it. It's very simple, and once it's off you'll never know it was there.

 They are so LONG, I don't know who they would fit, except for The Penguin on Batman. They were like wearing flippers. Unless you have freakishly long hands or fingers, DON'T buy these. Will be sending back.

Only the flip-over mitt has thinsulate, all of the finger bits are sewed together. Finally, they're made in China, not the US and Haiti like the description says. I've been buying Fox River gloves for a long time and was very disappointed with this product.

Excellent price for value, good service (if there is anything wrong, they will replace it immediately).

No weird smells. I got exactly what I was ordering. For a five star product I would expect to pay four times as much. But for what I was willing to pay and what I was looking for, it was great. It looks exactly like it does in the pictures, which is a good, but not a great design for tasks where you are going to be using the palm a lot.

Still for the price, excellent.

Looks better in the pictures than actual. No lining in the palm or back of the hand. Allows wind to travel through the fabric. Hands get cold in windy conditions

Fantastic mittens!
