    Handy Gloves/Mittens

    By Simon the Hiker

    from Boston, MA

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Commuting

        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.

        • Easy to convert
        • Very Warm As A Mitten

        Cons

        • Magnets Could Be Larger

        Best Uses

        • Cold weather running
        • Running

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

        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.

          Great gloves. Shotty craftsmanship

          By MetalheadHead84

          Pros

          • Very comfortable warm

          Cons

          • Magnets Fell Out

          Best Uses

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

            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.

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

            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.

              Mitten flat can be awkward to wear in the back position ... have to tuck it under your coat sleeve

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

                  I have renauds syndrom and find these fleece convertables the best solution. I can keep handwarmers in the mitten part to apply heat directly to my fingertips and still poke my fingers out when I need them. I often wear liner gloves under them. I got extras just so I will never be without them.

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

                  The previous pair I had 2 years ago were a cross between a heavy duty glove and this fleece one EMS is making. The magnet snaps were actual snaps. And the thumb flaps had snaps - which is something I have not been able to find. These have been a good replacement, but I still miss the warmth of the old ones.

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

                  I love these gloves!!!!! I spent days on the internet looking for gloves that would allow me to easily access to my samsung galaxy s3 smart phone. These gloves were exactly what I was looking for. I didn't want bulky gloves, so I expected to compromise with thin gloves that wouldn't keep my hands as warm. However, these gloves are unbelievably WARM! The magnets are such a great add on, I didn't even think of them when searching for a glove that allows you to expose the fingers. Also there's a clip at the base of the gloves that allows you to clip the gloves together, so you don't lose them as easily. I would've gladly paid triple for these gloves; they blow other famous brands out of the water. They're also incredibly good looking, and go great with my north face jacket.
