I shop there all the time. It's a small specialty shop in Seattle with a very knowledgeable crew and great gear. They have lots of used gear not reflected on the web site. Definitely a must-see if you are visiting Seattle.Nov 7, 2010 at 2:32 pm #1661928

Good call . I was on the fence, pink and kittens sealed the deal.
Thanks JimNov 9, 2010 at 2:17 pm #1662591
Let us know how the fit is once you receive them.Nov 9, 2010 at 2:57 pm #1662610
will do, will also report on the presence or absence of kitties :)Nov 11, 2010 at 5:40 pm #1663324
got the mitts today (that was quick, but they are only one state away) the Women's Large fits, if your in the upper range of a Men's medium they might be a little small
the kitties kind of grown on you :)Nov 11, 2010 at 6:37 pm #1663336
do you guys think a medium of these will fit in my small OR endeavor mitts?
the only reason im asking is because my medium windstopper OR gloves fit in well, wasnt sure about these ones on sale because they are mitts.
What are the advantages of a mitt verses a glove?
JoshNov 11, 2010 at 6:52 pm #1663338
can't say on fitment- guess it would depend on how much additional room you have in your Endeavors
mitts are simply warmer
I carry liner gloves as well as the mitts (and overmitts)Nov 11, 2010 at 7:55 pm #1663357
The cheapest walmart mitt is warmer than the best arcteryx glove given roughly the same fill
the shared warmth of the fingers …Nov 12, 2010 at 7:12 am #1663464
What glove are you talking about?Nov 12, 2010 at 7:16 am #1663467
I think he's just making a point between the warmth of gloves vs mitts :)Nov 12, 2010 at 11:12 am #1663553
like mike said …
any mitts with roughly the same amount of insulation will be warmer than any gloves
whether made in WMT, dead bird's china factory, or anywhere else … lol
the ONLY reason to wear gloves is dexterity … if that aint yr prime concern mitts are much warmerNov 16, 2010 at 12:06 pm #1664838

+1 to Mike. Mine just came in today as well. Im a men's medium in OR gloves, and the women's large fits me. The thumb felt a bit snug, but then again these are brand new so I expect them to give a bit after use.
Funny, mine didn't come with any hellokitties, but they did have HUGE unicorns on the palms.Nov 16, 2010 at 3:35 pm #1664934
good deal- I'm sending mine back- I want unicorns!Nov 16, 2010 at 3:51 pm #1664939
Im thinking about getting these but was wondering what sort of temps you guys are wearing these in and with what other mitts.
I have a pair of endeavor over mitts and a pair of windproof fleece gloves, do you guys thing there is really any need for the mitts as well, or would they go a lot better with my over mitts compared to the gloves?Nov 16, 2010 at 3:57 pm #1664942
these will be paired w/ Endeavor outer mitts- I also carry light (Smartwool liners) gloves
I think most scenarios you'd be fine w/ gloves + Endeavors, but if your gloves were to get wet or it got colder than one expected- the mitts might come in handy
I can envision several likely combos w/ light glove liners, fleece mitts and over mittsNov 16, 2010 at 4:02 pm #1664944
Yeah good point mike about having the extra mitts, but what about just getting a thin pair of liner gloves as the extra pair?
I just dont know if it will get cold enough in the PNW for the most part to need this extra pair.Nov 16, 2010 at 4:17 pm #1664951
yup that's certainly an option that would work well
mitts simply gain some further temp ranges, but if you don't really need that, then gloves (w/ overmitts) will certainly sufficeNov 16, 2010 at 6:55 pm #1665042
josh you should be fine for PNW with what you have … if you want mitts with flexibility you can buy those cheap fleece fingerless gloves that have a mitt cover at a big box store
