I love these mittens! Both of my brothers have an old pair of Analog mitts with the zippered hand and I had been wanting some like it for years, finally Burton made these! They don't make these for women (wtf Burton? don't you know girls like cool stuff too?), so I ordered them in a small (I'm usually medium in wmn's) and they're still a tiny bit big but not to the point of being inconvenient. I will never go back to a pair of mittens that doesn't have the zipper, because these ones are way too convenient. These mitts are so warm that my hands will even start to sweat after a run, but no problem - just open the zippers for some fresh air. Messing with my mp3 player, pulling out my wallet, adjusting my boots, & everything else needing some finger dexterity are no problem when a quick unzip frees your little friends for whatever task you need them for. The only negative thing I could say about these mitts is that there isn't a flap covering the zipper on the inside of the mitt to protect against extra moisture, but honestly I have never had a problem with any wetness getting through the closed zipper.
I love these mittens so much that I lost one of them on the mountain yesterday and am ordering a new pair RIGHT NOW in case it doesn't show up at lost and found... The thought of the inconvenience of a mitt that always has to be pulled off to use my fingers just sucks too bad now that I've experienced the glory of the Hi-Five Mitts :)
One more thing about these mitts: They have a pretty short cuff so they are really best worn inside of your jacket's wrist cuff. So if you have a jacket that doesn't have wrist gaiters or wrist adjusters that can get really tight, these might not work the best for you.
This mitt has been my favorite mitt for 2 years now, I have bought this mitt twice and I am extremely happy with them. The leather palm is very durable and water proof(after the waterproofing is rubbed in, it is included with the gloves). I love the side zip option which makes it easy to access your phone and other things. They are also extremely warm with a very soft lining that makes your hands comfy and toasty! They are even warm in weather that is in the single digits down to about -10 degrees. They are also a great price! I suggest you grab a pair before they are gone, you wont regret it!
This mitt is close to perfection. Yes it has all the great features to keep you warm and cozy on the inside, but the fact you can unzip and release your pretty little fingers is a great added bonus one of the main reason you get these bad boys. Whether you are fixing your binding stopping for a quick photo shoot maybe even a hydrate break deep in the woods these mitts are made for you.
