Our Arctic Mittens are made with our patented VÆTREX™ insulation, and are rated to -60ºF (-51ºC). When comparing weight to warmth, our Arctic Mittens are the lightest extreme cold weather mittens available in the world. Efficient insulation and our advanced technology protect your hands effectively while weighing less and feeling better than any other arctic mittens on earth. The 1” open-cell foam is part of the Arctic Mitten System that will keep your hands warm and dry to -60°F when used properly. Wear our Arctic Mittens, and you’ll never have to worry about frostbite on your fingers again.
Be sure to include the anti-contact gloves to protect your skin from sticking to cold metal objects when working with your mittens off.
And we recommend you invest in the best insurance you'll ever own - a lanyard to secure your Arctic Mittens to your clothing. That way you won't be one of the ones that calls to ask us if we sell individual mittens because you've lost one. (We don't.)

I have severe diabetic neuropathy. My hands become bitterly cold when participating in outdoor activites that I enjoy, i.e, ice fishing. I have spent literally thousans of dollars purchasing so-called extreme weather gloves. Not ounce have I been satisfied, until now. These mitts provide me the necessary comfort to stay out in inclement conditions. I also like the index finger access. My only criticism is the bulk and lack of dexterity. Hopefully this will get better after a "break in" period. Overall, the best mitts I've ever owned...thank you!

I bought these mittens for skiing because my hands would always get cold. These are by far the warmest mittens i ever put on. But dont expect much dexterity. My hands were toasty 90% of the time while on the slope. But with a couple basic changes i think it could be a little better. First, there should be a little more insulation on the thumbs, as thats were i felt the cold first. And second, having cinches at the wrist and at the end of the mitten to seal in the heat. But other than that its a great mitten. I dropped the liners that i bought with it in a puddle. They were soaked and when i put them on, my hands were immediatly cold and wet. I put on the mittens and after 3 runs, my hands were warm and dry. So they are good for expeditions because if they get wet, they will dry out super fast and your hands will still be warm if wet. Highly recommended.

First pair of miss that have kept my hands warm. Only drawback is that they are bulky and difficult to operate my tractor/blower.
i'll work around the bulkiness for warm hands. GREAT PRODUCT.

Thank-you Northern Outfitters, when i first opened the package containing the mittens all i could say was WOW, I live in Manitoba Canada and have been looking for something to keep my hands warm and if these don't do it nothing will. i am very impressed so far but am looking forward to giving them the real test. Very Well Made

So I was wearing them in Alaska, the coldest day was -50ish. I was out watching aurora one night and had to take my hands out to take pictures. Of course, my hands were frozen after some time. But after I put my hands back into the mittens for about 2 or 3 minutes, they became warm again! I may had hand warmer inside the mitten earlier that night but by the time I put my hands in, the warmers had been lost already. So it is kinda like a miracle.
and as the previous complaint, no, you cannot really do much things with these on.
as for the purchasing experience, it is a little mixed. After I put the order down, they did not mail it out after 1 week or even longer after they sent me the confirmation email. I wrote two emails to inquire with no reply. Just before I was about to call my bank to terminate the transaction, the parcel arrived by UPS Air Next Day. There was even a hand written note saying "we appreciate your business"
Of course, I am happy with the mittens that they protect my hands well in the AK trip and guess this company just tends to do business in an old fashion way or something even if they do have website...

The mittens kept my hands warm but I couldn't do anything with my hands while wearing them. I had to take them off even to use my binoculars. While wearing the parka they were difficult to put on all the way.

These mittens are very well made and warm. The cold does not get through. I wear XL leather gloves so I ordered the XL arctic mittens. They are a little big, I should have ordered the large size. I decided to keep them and wear polyester glove liners in them. If the glove liners ever interfere with the mittens' performance, I will just go without the glove liners and it will be okay. I can't wield any weapons with the mittens on, but they are warm!

I've had these for 20 + years and they are the warmest mittems I'v ever had. When Ice fishing in Northern Ontario I always used to be the first one to call it day because of cold, but with my NO boots/coat/pants/mittens I'm the last to leave. These are not just my hands are not cold they are my hands are warm

The mittens are of the highest quality in terms of comfort, fit, and material workship. The are very comfortable. I expect that their generous layers of thermal insulation will protect me even in the most extremely frigid Arctic conditions. I am totally delighted with my mittens. Thank you so very much!!
