Straight forward gloves

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It's a simple-and-durable-as-hell snow sport glove. Very warm, good closures, nice liners, right price. What more do you need??

Kitten Mittens

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had the scout gloves and loved them so I gave these bad boys a try. These are warmer than their glove counterpart, which for the current conditions this year is actually not a plus. However, for those bitter cold, cloudy days these are perfect. I maybe one of the few cheerleaders for synthetic and truly dislike leather. I think that the synthetic provides a lighter weight feel, if properly maintained more waterproof, and to me much warmer.

Palms Guards in any condition

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Soft and warm gloves as a 1st layer with touch-screen friendly finger tips. Very useful for sms or callings answers.
Durable and comfortable main mitten in couple with inner gloves makes extra warmth palms guards in any winter condition.
A bunch of high-tech features from nose wiper to fixing cord and inner gloves palm grip added.
Excellent choice for those, who appreciate a quality, comfort and tec.

Everything you need in a good mitten

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

For the price on these, Dakine gives you everything you really need in a mitten. Warm but not too warm, and they definitely keep the wet out. Sinches up at the wrist and forearm to keep all the snow out.

perfect for building igloos!

Solid Mitten

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: medium

zero complaints for the inner linings. perfect for chilly days, and thin enough to quickly maneuver through zippers, bindings, laces, etc. (obviously not water proof) .

The outer mitten is very toasty, but a little bigger than I would like. I believe they are designed to go around the inner lining, but thats not necessary on any but the coldest of days! Overall great mitten/liner combo for a great price. no problems staying dry or warm

Perfect glove for the price. I love that it has the straps to connect to your wrist, never drop a glove again. Simple design and features. Very warm glove for the price point. I wish it had the vented zipper, but would still highly recommend this glove

Not bad. You get what you pay for

I've used gloves for skiing, snowshoeing, and winter activities for... Well... All my life. I always wanted the dexterity that comes with gloves. but my fingers were always cold. Always. ALWAYS.
After trying some of the warmest gloves I could afford, and always being disappointed, my fiancé talked me into these. The "shared heat" effect of having your fingers together is warmer she said. She may be right, but I'm afraid these mittens don't prove it. The big advantage to mittens, at least these, that I've found is that the hamdwarmer can be down in the end of the mittens with your fingers (where it does the most good) instead of at your palm or the back of your hand. But in temperatures in the high twenties with a hand warmer, my fingers are still frigid in these.

Now, these may be enough warmth for "normal" people, but if you have cold hands and fingers or Raynaud's, you best look elsewhere. Which is really a shame, as the dexterity in these mittens is pretty great... For mittens.

Also, an interesting sizing note, I got the X-Large because I have fairly large beefy climbers hands. The mittens fit great, but the thumbs are a little tight (thus not as warm). But the liner gloves are just too big. I'd say the X-Large mittens are between a L and XL, but the liner gloves with them are between an XL and a XXL.

GREAT MITTENS

Kept my hand warm all day and night while boarding! The included liners are amazing and it's really awesome that you can use your phone with them on!

What i wanted

  • Fit: Runs large

This pair of gloves is great for cold all day field maintenance, love them. i maybe could of went a size smaller but with the liner gloves its a perfect fit.

Warmest my hands have ever been

Ill be the first to admit i am terrible in the cold. my hands and feet get cold super easy and its hard to have fun when you cant feel your hands. i used these mitts for my first snowboarding experience this past weekend. Record cold temps with temp on the mountain dropping down to -10. NEVER ONCE DID MY HANDS GET COLD and i boarded for almost the entire day, only taking breaks because my butt hurt from falling. But man are these Mittens amazing. They come with a set of gloves to wear under the mittens as well. THese come in handy when you have to take off your mitts to mess with bindings, which i did alot! Waterproof and Windproof i would give these mittens a 10/10 if i could. BUY WITH CONFIDENCE!

Unanswered Question

Do the liners have the special tip of the fingers so you can use your smart phone with them on?

These mittens are great. They keep me warm and have held up to a beating. They are with me every time I head to Brighton and they have held up well.

Warm, dry

Kept my hands warm and dry. Goggle wipe, idiot leash, works on touch screen. Runs a little big if you are following the fitting guide, order a size down.

When the Cold Hits

    Great cold weather mit! Liners give you warmth options as the temps change and are great for keeping your hands from freezing when getting the phone or camera out.

    Best Mittens Hands down

    I've owned this mitten for 2 seasons now and love them. These mittens will not dissappoint, these are the first pair of mittens that have lasted me more than 1 season without ripping. They're also the warmest mittens I have ever owned. They have a removable liner that can keep your hands super warm on those freezing cold days, and for the warm spring days you can take them right out and not have to worry about your hands sweating. I would defiantly recommend these mittens to everyone!

    Nice Warm Mitten

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Dakine has always been one of my favorite brands for mittens, and the Scout doesn't disappoint for a warm mitten that won't break the bank! Nice synthetic insulation keeps my hands warm even in the cold Utah winter days and I've had no problems with the mittens getting wet either. Would recommend for anyone looking for a warm, durable mitt that isn't too expensive!

    Finally - Warm Hands!!!

    I have not worn mittens in 20 years and had no idea what I was missing! This morning it was 5 degrees with a 20+ mph wind and 8" of new snow. My hands were toasty warm after more than an hour outside. I love the liners, they have a rubber patterned palm that keeps them from sliding inside the mittens. On a warmer day, one could skip the liners and be fine. Great purchase.

    Great Mitts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These Mitts are well worth picking up. never had any problems keeping hands dry and warm with these, even without liners in during really cold days.



    just be careful when wiping your nose, rubber on thumb didn't feel too good. lesson learned.
