Description: Burton Baker Mittens
If you like to brave the coldest area's possible to find the best slopes than you need to have the Burton Baker Snowboard Mitts to keep your hands warm. With the DRYRIDE Ultrashell 2 layer coated fabric protecting your hands from the outside you will never have to worry about your gloves getting wet because you put your hand in some snow. The Thermacore insulation works with the heater/vent pocket to keep your hands toasty warm within your gloves. If your hands are colder than the insulation alone can keep warm all you have to do is slide a disposable handwarmer into the heater pocket and instantly your gloves transform into a pair of heated gloves. If you want to keep your hands warm, you need the Burton Baker Snowboard Mitts.

The good stuff: for mittens they offer great dexterity especially for snowboarders, they have a goggle wipe attached to a relatively long leash inside one of the zippered pockets, and the drawstring on the cuff at the very back does a great job of keeping the mitten secure around your jacket cuff so snow doesn't get in. This is the further back drawstring, not the one that secures the mitten to your hand that goes around the wrist.
The bad stuff: these are way too warm for almost any conditions except the really cold days. I'm talking 10 or 20 degrees they will be fine but for those 30 degree days in Mammoth, you should probably look into something else. They also absorb water more than I was expecting which lead to it seeping into the mitten after 8 hours on the slopes and causing my hands to get clammy.
Lastly, the zippered vents on the mittens don't work at all for releasing heat. I don't attribute this as much to their function as much as it is their location. The vents are right on top of the most insulated part of the top of the mitten which, I assume, would take forever to release any sort of heat and even then wouldn't release it fast enough.
Overall, if you're looking for mittens for a super cold boarding day where you'll be decked out in 20k/15k insulated jacket and pants then these will be fine but otherwise i'd look at some lightweight mittens or better, gloves
