Premium ragg wool glomitt keeps hands warm with the layered assistance of soft fleece & 3M Thinsulate (TM) insulation. Deer leather palm for durability/grip. The glomitt is a fingerless glove that transforms into a mitten.
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.
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.
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.)...
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.
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.
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.
Excellent price for value, good service (if there is anything wrong, they will replace it immediately).
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
