        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Hyland Fleece Convertible Mittens:

        I wear these mittens while walking around Boston, and they do a good job of keeping my fingers warm in mitten mode. When I need more dexterity (to grab my wallet or phone, for instance), I can peel back the mitten. For convenient smart phone use, you can also expose your thumb. The covers are held open by magnets, which is definitely a step up from the velcro of days gone by. Sometimes it can be a little tough to get to thumb cover back into mitten mode, but it's not a big deal. Unsurprisingly, these mittens aren't waterproof and they are only so warm; you'll need something more technical for really cold/wet/snowy days on the trail.

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Hyland Fleece Convertible Mittens:

          This is a review partly of the versinos from several years ago, and partly of the latest, since I lost one of the old ones (*sniff*).

          I really, really like these convertable mittens. They work for anything short of extreme cold, and anything short of extreme wet. My wife and I have used ours for everything from driving to shoveling snow. The old ones never so much as dropped a stitch. The new ones appear to be just as well made; time will tell. Highly recommended, especially when they're on sale.

              Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Hyland Fleece Convertible Mittens:

              These glove/mittens are my constant companion when I'm photographing in outdoor cool weather conditions. You can use them as fingerless gloves that turn into mittens as needed. Importantly the thumb can be either covered or not, meaning you can uncover when you need to (e.g., for smart phone or touch sensitive screen use). The gloves are effective down to maybe 30 degrees F. Quality is good enough, with a few loose threads here and there. Price is very fair.

                    I exchanged these mittens for another pair that was waterproof, windproof, and warm for use during winter bicycling.

                    Will keep hands warm while freeing fingers to use phones, weather meters, handheld GPS units, etc. Very practical. Really like the gloves.

                    I use these to run with in the winter. In mitten mode they keep your fingers warm when most gloves do not. If you need to cool off just pull the tops down and you have a fingerless glove. This is also really useful when you want to fiddle with your cell phone. The pair I have is now a few years old. I plan to get a second as backup.

                    Good design, poor manufacturing

                    By K Knight

                    from Jersey City, NJ

                    Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Hyland Fleece Convertible Mittens:

                    I would give these four stars for the design and two stars for the manufacturing quality.

                    I really like the design. Most convertible mittens I've seen use velcro instead of magnets for holding the thumb and finger flaps in place. I find that velcro is not very effective in holding the flaps in place, and it catches on other clothing (most notably my coat pockets). The magnets, on the other hand, are effective and they don't catch on other clothing.

                    But I've been unimpressed with the manufacturing quality. I've purchased three pairs of these mittens, and each one had a manufacturing defect.

                    On the first pair, one of the magnets was misplaced so that the right finger flap didn't hold in place when open. That wasn't a big deal for me. For my purposes, I need the left flap open a lot more than the right flap. After owning this pair for a year, two of the magnets came out in the washing machine (despite the fact that I followed the washing instructions on the tags).

                    So I bought a second pair. The second pair had a hole in the palm, at the seam where the palm meets the thumb. I sent that pair back and bought a third pair. The third pair is mostly ok. The only defect is that the thumb flap on the left hand doesn't close fully. There's a slight gap, but it's something I can live with.

                      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Hyland Fleece Convertible Mittens:

                      I wanted a pair of convertible mittens but it was late in the season and there were no ladies mittens left in my size so I got these in size small men's. Love them! I wore them for the first time to shovel out from this weeks big snow. They kept my hands cozy warm even after they were wet from brushing off the wet snow from our vehicles. Only had two occasions when my thumb peaked out but just tucked it back in and on I went. I like them so much I'd like to get a second pair! The strong magnets to hold the flaps open is ingenious.

                        these are great gloves and are very comfortable. I love the magnets however they were sown in so poorly that 2 of them fell out after only having the gloves for about a week. I did save the magnets and ended up sowing them back in on my own. Great gloves I love them but if you buy them be prepared to make some repairs yourself on them. That is why only 3 stars. Would have been 5 if the magnets didn't fall out.

                        I bought these in Dec '13. It's now Jan '14 and already some of the magnets in my gloves have fallen out. This is absolutely ridiculous for a product that I just purchased a month ago! I took a look at the inside of the gloves and it appears the magnets are held in place merely by some fabric adhesive or double-sided tape. I cannot recommend any purchasing these.
