Women’s Whirlibird™ Mitten is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will Be Very Warm I ordered these for when I have to shovel out during the cold North Dakota winters. I thought I had ordered large enough to fit my hands with glove liners inside, but they're a little snug. I don't anticipate this being a problem though and they seem that they will be warm enough without a liner. I can't speak for their warmth or functionality until it's actually snowing and I need to put them to good use, but they seem like they'll work great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great I got frostbite as a child because I would sit and watch my brother ice skate and I couldn't do it...and my toes and fingers got frostbite....my mother worked and we were left on our own.... Anyway....these mittens really DO work and keep my fingers and hands from being cold. The technology traps the heat in and I don't need the hand warmer inserts you can buy to heat up your hands...thank you Columbia

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mittens I went with the larger size due to being on the edge and made the right decision. I haven't had a lot of opportunity to use them at this point but when I did I was much happier than wearing gloves which never seem to keep my hands as warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ski Mittens I bought these for my daughter for her first ski trip. She loved them! She said her hands were toasty warm despite the frigid temps and likes that they went past her wrist and tightened up to keep snow out when she fell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Toasty My hands get cold! These are warm. I bought a large because I read other reviews and that was the right thing to do. Once your hands are in the elastic is snug and they stay put. The cuffs are long to either put inside your coat sleeve or out and your wrists stay warm. I got these right when our weather was a little below 0 this winter and was happy they were delivered quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice mitten, but runs narrow Liked the style and quality of this mitten, but the width is narrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gloves These gloves are great. Usually, I wear a large; however, ordered an extra large, they are a bit snug. I like them though - color is vibrant and they are toasty warm!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm Mittens My wife's hands are always cold and she struggles in the winter. I got these mittens for her and they are keeping her hands warm. The only complaint is that they are very small. With other brands she wears a large so I ordered her the extra large and they are still a little too short so they don't fit right on her long hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great warm mittens I bought five pairs of mittens for my grand kids. They loved them and they are very warm. They are all 10-13 years old, but I bought adult mittens since they seemed a bit warmer than the youth sizes I had purchased previously. All the mittens fit well and so far they have held up to the vigorous play of the grand kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm mittens I have a condition that causes lack of circulation in my fingers. These do keep my fingers warm. Order larger than you normally would. I usually wear a medium but after reading the other reviews, ordered a large and happy I did. They fit perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect cold-weather mittens These mittens are just what I need with the cold Chicago winter approaching. As someone who uses public transit to commute, I'm outside for extended periods of time, and often my hands are freezing after five minutes regardless of what type of gloves or mittens I have on. With these mittens, not only would my hands stay warm, if I put the mittens on after my hands were freezing, they would warm up instantly. I personally think the gloves run a little small, though. I have relatively small hands, and the mediums were snug on me!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Children's Mittens? I will be giving these to my daughter...I don't have large hands, but these mittens are tiny! A little disappointed for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mitten My hands are always cold and saw other reviews about how warm they are, and they are in fact, toasty! I spent all day skiing in them without having to use hand warmers. I highly recommend these mittens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect timing These came on the eve of one of the many winter storms to grace the Portland area winter 2016/2017. I opted for a medium and I'm glad I did because I have long fingers. I'm so happy to have warm mittens for my raynauds! The best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomely warm mitten This is the best Mitten I have ever owned. The little dots on the inside of this mitten keep your hands toasty warm. I have tried liners with gloves and gloves that were supposed to keep your hands warm. Nothing has worked until I came across these mittens. I highly recommend these for people whose hands get cold easily and have had trouble finding gloves or mittens to keep you warm. If your hands are cold when you put them in these mittens it only takes maybe 5 minutes to warm them up. I can't say enough good things about these mittens . They are awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST ski accessory I've ever purchased I have poor circulation in my fingers and am notorious for getting cold in gloves, so I opted for mittens. These mittens kept my hands WARM while skiing in CO in 4° air. I could not be happier with my purchase and would definitely recommend them, especially to women whose hands/fingers get cold easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A guy's view This is my first pair of mittens since childhood. They fit well and keep,your hands warm. First use was the blizzard of 2016 in the DC area. The mittens kept my hands warm and dry. The pull tabs pull to since closed and also have a release pull strap. Yes I am a man who bought size XL gloves as they were out of men's mittens. Who cares, they work!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Warm Enough for Snow Sports These mittens appear to be well constructed with sturdy materials, stitching, straps, hardware, etc. However, they aren't warm enough to wear skiing, even at relatively warm temperatures (just below freezing). I'm returning them as they're useless for snow sports. Not what I expect from Columbia, a brand I'm usually pleased with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit great, feel great. Need to wait for more snow to really give them a test drive. I don't think I will be let down though.
