I ordered Mittens and these are not mittens. They are gloves with a mitten like cover.
I occassionally ride my ATV in very cold areas and gloves still allow my fingers to become cold.
These are well made and probably very warm, but they're gloves.
If you want a glove that looks like a mitten these will do very well and will probably keep your hans very warm..

These mitts are made of a canvas type material with leather tip and palm, so they're not entirely made of leather. The inside is a fleece glove. They run a bit small. I am a woman with medium/large size hands and bought the Large in these mitts, which fit perfectly. The sinch cord is indeed long and could get caught on door knobs etc. Nothing like mitts to keep your hands warm though and they do the job!
These mittens are great! My hands have stayed warm in them through some cold mornings snow blowing. The extra length fits over my jackets, and I haven't had any snow come in contact with my wrist or hands while using them. Wonderful!
These mittens are nice! Excellent value and a nice fit. One really nice feature is the larger 'cuffs' that fit over jacket sleeves and make a nice air tight seal, esp. nice if it is windy, you are out riding an atv or other snow fun. the deerskin palms weather nicely and don't snag & rip like some nylon types.
I would order a size larger than you usu wear since I found them to be on the slightly smaller side.
I wanted a new pair for backcountry snowboarding. Deerskin seemed like a good material to grab tree branches once in a while. It does seem a bit thin, but holds well loosing just cosmetic appearance but not an integrity.
However the inner linings are just terrible. They are getting wet inside pretty fast. This alone does not bother me as long as they are warm. And they are! They also tend to retain moisture. They do not dry overnight while my other gloves do just fine. When wet, the lining inside is easily susceptible to tearing. Somehow I managed to poke a hole with my middle finger. I am not certain but it seems like it was not along the seem.
Another frustration is that gauntlet strap lock is too far away from a mitt thus making it impossible to tighten the gauntlet by pulling the strap with another hand. But that is okay as I do not get snow in even with loose gauntlets. Though the adjustment mechanism is just pointless.
I use these when I use our walk behind snow blower which I have been using a lot this year. Overall they have kept my hands warm when the temps are above a -10 wind chill on those occasions when it is colder I slide a thin pair of gloves under the mittens.
