"Burton Vice Mittens"
- Name: 2011 Burton Vice Mittens
- Pros: Great Quality! , Warm, Dry
- Cons: I wish the leather Palm was thicker it gets worn , Sizes run small,
Got these to replace and worn-down pair of Burton Baker gloves. These are a step up from those for sure, and being a mitten instead of a glove they are much warmer. The included liner is really nice with the grippy palm and fingers and allows you to take off the mitten without being completely exposed to the elements. Looking forward to putting the durability to the test boarding this season but I expect they will be fine based on my history with other products from the brand.
These mitts can be used to control touchscreen phones. I demoed the technology on a different pair of gloves (with fingers) in the store it and it works great. With the mitts, however, be forewarned that it is difficult to be precise on a touchscreen because the pleather strip used for the touchscreen is rather wide. I wasn't able to accurately input my passcode, for instance. The good news is that you can get precise by using your thumb to control the phone because it has the same material, and it works like a charm. So if you want mitts, like I do, expect to have to use your thumb to control touchscreen devices.
