Our Arctic Mittens, like our Arctic Boots and Arctic Clothing System, 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 with our Arctic Boots, and you’ll never have to worry about frostbite on your fingers and toes again.
Be sure to include a lanyard with your Arctic Mittens to secure them to your Arctic Parka, and the anti-contact gloves to protect your skin from sticking to cold metal objects when working with the mittens off.

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!!

These are by far the warmest mittens that I have ever warn. My hands are typically cold when using an ATV to plow for long periods of time in temperatures between 0 and 10 F, but with these gloves my hands are toasty. I have not used them in anything approaching -60F weather, but in windy conditions around 0F they have proved more then sufficient.
There is not great dexterity but I guess you sacrifice that for the additional warmth and that is a sacrifice that I do not mind working. For any tasks that require a decent amount of dexterity I would either wait until it is warmer or look elsewhere for gloves.

I was issued your Arctic Mitten set by my police department (wind mittens, arctic mittens and liner) a few years back and they are phenomenal.
I work as a police officer in the Twin Cities Metropolitan area and have used just the wind mittens and liner during firearms training in January and my hands didn't get cold. The arctic mittens added on top of the others make for outstanding cold weather protection when exposed to the elements for long periods of time.
These are by far the best mittens I've ever used. I would highly recommend them to anyone who gets exposed to extreme cold weather.
Thanks for developing such an terrific product!

Outstanding Mittens and Boots. I spent thousands of dollars on clothing trying to stay warm in extreme winter weather. On a recent Timber Wolf hunt in Northern Ontario it was 15 below zero my hands and feet never got cold with the Arctic Mittens and Boots. Thanks for a great product.
