So far, I am satisfied with the fit and overall quality of the product.

The fingers AND thumb parts fold over to allow for a little more dexterity, plus they are held back by nice little magnets to stay out of your way.

Incidentally, the liners work nicely on their own as mittens without the shell -- much more substantial than, say, typical glove liners.

The basic design of these mittens is very good: The shell has a small amount of PrimaLoft on the back, and is lined with very thin fleece. This means that, for moderate temperatures, you don't even need the liners. And they feel very nice.

The liners are nice in that, if you are using them by themselves, you can flip back the top, to expose just the ends of your fingers and thumb. This gives you great dexterity without freezing your hand.

The problem is that the liners are quite narrow in the thumb and around the hand just above the thumb. I have been wearing Large size Outdoor Research mittens and shells for 20 years, with no problem. But I ordered both a Large and an Extra Large in these Meteor Mitts, and even the Extra Large felt tight in both places. It felt like it would reduce circulation a little, which I can't afford in cold weather. Also, the shell is a little tight for the liner, so it bunches up some, impacting circulation further.

If your hand is narrow, or you don't need the liners (I would guess that the shells alone would work down to 25 degrees, but that's just a guess), these are terrific. But my hand is normal size, and I need it to go much colder, so I'm sending these back to get the Mt. Baker mitts.

I got these on a guess. Shopping online, I always wish I could get my hands on the product and really see and feel how it fits me, how it's made, and how it seems like it will suit what I want it to do. I lucked out this time. Well-made, fits well, and abundantly warm. I use the mittens as overmitts over a light pair of fleece gloves when it's cold and/or rainy and windy, and so far they have been more too warm than the opposite. For me, who has chronic circulation problems and very cold hands, given any amount of activity, these would be good well down into the teens, at least, and windy and wet to boot. With the included heavy fleece mitten liners, I'd be pretty confident approaching zero, as long as I was being active. I'm not sure how they'd go if just sitting around, but probably pretty well, if short of real expedition quality. Recommended.

Contrary to information that I was told by Outdoor Research the exterior shells are lined. In my experience the lining tends to become bunched up and you are unable to redistribute the insulation which renders the gloves useless.

A better solution is to combine a pair of Fox River Single or Double Ragg Mitts with a pair of Outdoor Research Revel Mitt shells. The shells are just that, shells. You wear them over a pair of gloves or mittens. If you like this idea then order the shells 1 size larger then the liners. I guaranty that your hands will be warm.

I suspect the "convertible" inner liner was originally designed as a plain mitten/glove. The extra material makes the thumbs tight, where the rest of the mitt is great. Using some thing gloves makes these great.

Too warm for anything above 25F if doing anything remotely active.

I like these mittens a lot.

They keep my hands warm in the cold, even when out in in sleet. The shell kept the wet out and the insulation kept my hands toasty.

In fact, when I took them off, I realized my hands had been sweating. Despite that, my hands didn't get cold like they would have with other gloves or mittens where perspiration quickly turns cold.

My only complaints are the following:

1) The liners shift around too easily and tend to bunch up in the area where my fingers go. It takes a bit of shifting of my hand and fingers to get things to lay right.

2) There are elastic draw strings for the cuffs that are quite simply far too long. You can see them in the product photos. They extend a good 4-5 inches even when the cuffs are fully open. The result is, whether tightened or loose, those draw strings snag on literally everything that you can imagine: door knobs, the works of a snowblower when clearing jams, tools while pulling out a shovel, the gear shift on my truck. Everything. They should be built so when the cuffs are fully expanded, the drawstrings would be fully retracted. Instead, they're like little lassos that want to grab onto anything close by. Further, there is no breakaway on the loops, so the potential for getting snagged on something that might take you hand with the glove is there. I can imagine someone getting one caught in a winch or some other running machine and only needing one mitten as a result.

Other than the above, the gloves work great. It wouldn't be too hard to solve the loop problem by shortening it loose end and reattaching it with a breakaway clip. I had to take off a star for it, since there's no reason for it.

The liner issue is a product of a removable liner. There's really no way they could keep it from shifting and still allow it to be removed from the mitten. I didn't take off the star for that.

Haven't tried them in extreme cold, but they have sufficed into single digits (single digit temps - good for all ten of my digits).

These mitts were great...The best part are probably the liners that go inside of them that don't get enough publicity. The fingers AND thumb parts fold over to allow for a little more dexterity, plus they are held back by nice little magnets to stay out of your way. The outer shell is incredibly warm. I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro with these things...I ended up not needing the shells.

I ordered the large size. My hands aren't too dainty, but they were swimming inside these. I'd say they fit a little large.
