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.
