    HUGE but toasty even in -30c

    I love these mittens! They kept my hands toasty in finnish lapland all winter, even at -30c. Have a handy pull to tighten wrist adjustment to keep them on which is easy to do with your teeth if driving a snowmobile! I only doubled up with an inner pair when temps dropped below -28c or if i knew i would want to be taking photographs . My advice would be to buy the size down than you think you need :) love them! and would buy again

    Good service. Far too BIG ;(

    Lovely product. Never used them at all because far too BIG so had to return them immediately. Glove sizes do vary and they should never fit tightly. I could see others reviews. I am a 7.5 glove size so ordered a S. I could have accommodated the extra width, but the hand length had 2 inches of surplus mitt flapping about at the end of my longest fingers even when pulled on snugly. This made them very clumsy to use. I think they are probably an 8.5. The collect and return service at my local Asda was faultless. Please offer as an XS and XXS!!
