The state of Michigan could have been shaped like a glove, or a t-shirt, or - who knows! - a hummingbird. But it's not. It looks like a mitten, and a stout one at that, which made it easy for the Stormy Kromer® design team to craft these do-anything hand coverings that separate your thumb from your other fingers while keeping all digits toasty warm.
To find your mitten size, measure (in inches) your dominant hand around the widest part - usually this is your knuckles - excluding your thumb. Round up when between sizes.
Saw a pair in September, didn't get them right away, and regretted not picking them up. Thought about them, but had plenty of other gloves so went without. In December found another pair in Northern Wisconsin, picked them up and went right to the register, to take them home. Very comfortable and warm ant this winter they really came in handy. Don't think about it just buy them, don't get cold fingers anymore.
I live in the Minneapolis area and have used these while using my snow blower. This is a tough test for mitts since you are constantly holding the blower handle. I found that these mitts keep my hands warm at temps about 5 deg. F or above. Below that temp. my hands become very cold.
These mittens keep my hands warm in sub zero conditions, even for extended periods of time. I've had many pairs of gloves that left my fingers numb with cold, but these Tough Mitts keep my hands warm. The leaather palms hold up great for shoveling or other outdoor work. Well worth the cost. I've bought these for my wife and kids, too.
They appear to be nowhere as warm as I expected they would be. Disappointed.
These mittens are great! Really warm and the leather palms/thumb are really tough and heavy duty. These are great for using the snowblower / shovel on cold / snowy morning. These are well worth the price and keep my hands warm in the coldest outdoor weather Minnesota has to offer.
love these mittens, able to do work with these on, always look good even if palms get wet, have abused these with many jobs but always look great
I bought these Mitts along with the Rancher Cap. We have had what seems like weeks of below zero weather here in Western New York, and I did not have a hat or gloves which kept my head and hands warm...I do now!!! The fit is great easy to get on and off. Work well driving the tractor plowing snow. This is another can't miss product by Stormy Kromer!!!
Super happy with the mitts, the leather palm is sturdy and supple, the insulation is good, materials are great. Below about -10, when the wind kicks up, you can feel it blow through some of the seams though, so for super cold weather this might not be the mitt for you.
Should be required gear for anyone who has to shovel snow, cut wood, scrape cars, hike, work, exist in cold weather! I've done all those things and more with mine for two years now. They're completely comfortable and durable. The elastic at the wrist is perfect, not too restrictive, but keeps out the snow. The palms give you traction and wear and wear and wear. The wool is nice for wiping snow from your face, yet keeps you warm. The fleece lining is comfortable, yet breathable. Kept me warm in 15 below zero, yet never sweat. Added benefit: made in MICHIGAN, the mitten state. Thanks SK for a great product.
The day they arrived we had 15 inches of snow and 30 MPH winds. Worked perfectly and kept my hands warm in the high mountains of NC. Very well made by folks who I am sure take pride in their craft. Thanks!
