Nepal Mera Peak


I have used these at Nepal Mera Peak. It was -5F and my hands/fingers were warm. I strongly suggest to Eddie Bauer to add wrist straps for these mitts. Also, the page says that mitts are "waterproof", I'm not sure if that is true or not. I think it's a marketing statement just to sell more of these. Why do I say that? Eddie Bauer does not say what type of material is used to provide the waterproofing. When you call customer service at Eddie Bauer, they have no idea. So, gloves should be waterproof, great, what makes them, what material? No one knows, not even Eddie Bauer.




First Ascent Trigger Mitts


I've been looking for mitts that can take on the brutal cold and provide a good amount of water and wind resistance. I need mitts to keep my hands warm during lengthy outdoor walks, outdoor photography, snow shoveling, snow blowing, etc. I've been waiting for a very cold day to test the mitts and today was the day. The temperature this morning is -15 F with blowing winds from 25-35 mph, making the "feel like" temperature or wind chill -45 F. But hey, at least the sun was out :-) After bundling up I went outside and wore the mitts for about an hour while shoveling the driveway and sidewalk of snow that fell the night before. The XL mitts were very comfortable and they felt good around the contour of my hands. Remember the 25-35 mph wind gusts I mentioned? The mitts protected my hands extremely well and I did not feel any cold air blowing in through the ripstop nylon backing or the seams. The elastic bands snuggled comfortably around my wrists and the outer cuff/gauntlet fit over my jacket sleeves nicely. The independent index finger is nice but it was not a factor in purchasing the mitts, I just need warmth and dryness, not dexterity. My only disappointment is that my fingers became cold – quickly. I'm not blaming this on these mitts though, I'm in my 50's and I've always had difficulty keeping my fingers (and toes) warm in very cold weather. The reason I bought the XL is so I could easily insert a chemical hand warmer into each mitt, which I didn't do during the test this morning but will do on my next outdoor adventure.




Toasty warm


Very warm and just enough dexterity to be functional. I don't have a problem like the other posters have had in regards to the length of the fingers. I can take them off in 20-degree weather for a minute then put them back on and warm up quickly.




Very warm, but too large and difficult to do anything with


These mitts are very warm. My hands can sweat in these. The materials are great and the quality is the usual Eddie Bauer that I've come to expect: excellent.However, I cannot recommend these if you need dexterity. Problem with these gloves is that the end where your hand first goes in are too large and thus difficult to get the glove in the jacket, unless you put the gloves on first and then put your jacket on after... then comes the tricky part: zipping your jacket. I get frustrated with these because I have to often take them off my hands to do basic things, then when putting the gloves back on, they look very messy because the "cuffs" aren't in the jacket. And in -20 degree weather, I'm not taking my jacket off to put the gloves back on properly.I'd only recommend these gloves if your going out with them and your confident you won't need to take them off.
