Ordered and received L mittens didnt wear for a few months. Wore, and so very small. Ordered XL and still runs small.
Thanks for this feedback on sizing, Paul! Please reach out if you'd like to return them under our [Ironclad Guarantee](https://help.patagonia.com/s/article/Ironclad-Guarantee). We'll be happy to help!
I love the way these gloves feel. Cozy and warm. So handy to have finger access. I also like button fastener that holds the mitten flap back. Much better than Velcro, in my opinion. I did need to exchange the large for an XL because the fingers were a little snug and the length a little short for my large hands.
Warm and comfortable
These mittens are warm, comfortable and high quality materials. They could be improved by getting rid of the strap and button to keep them open. It is somewhat difficult and time consuming to hook up and release the strap. I would suggest using Velcro instead for simplicity and would probably save in construction cost. Also, it would be nice to hav... Read Moree the thumb release for added dexterity. With these improvements I would give 5 stars.
Well-made but not functional
These gloves were used as in town gloves, hopefully, but what I found is the fit was small, the feel of the glove was a bit unnatural in a little uncomfortable and in general it was one of my lesser favorite gloves. Might work better for a smaller hand just didnt work for me
Good for cold weather.....
But not ideal for sub 32f. The flip top is a single layer of bettersweater and would be warmer if it were two layers or some thin insulation . Button holder works well but not terribly durable which is surprising for Patagonia. The string that the button attaches to already snapped on one of my flip tops. Still wearing them on cold days since they ... Read Morefit well and serve my need.

Warm But Run Small
At first, I was very surprised by how small these gloves run. I typically would order a Large for such an item, but I had to exchange for an XL, which fit much better. The exchange process was easy enough. The gloves are as warm as you would expect. I live in SW Pennsylvania, and the temps have been averaging in the low to mid 20s this winter, and ... Read Morethese are keeping my hands plenty warm for short walks with my dog around the neighborhood. They are more durable than other mittens Ive owned before, so overall I would definitely recommend these for the type of glove category they are in.
Nice Gloves for "cool" and "cold" weather
We are in the Seattle area and walk daily. We like these fingerless gloves with the cap on them so that when it is not quite so cold the cap can come off and when it is colder, the cap can cover the fingers. My husband and I both are usually medium glove size but purchased the large and they fit nicely with a tad extra room in the palms.
Warm and practical
Because of my poor circulation, gloves don't work for me (I actually end up feeling colder in my hands with gloves on than without and in my pockets). These Gloves/Mittens finally did the trick. My fingers are free to rub against each other and help circulation, and the overall cover helps keep the whole set of fingers warm. And it's easy... Read More enough to remove the cover so I can use my fingers when I need to. Highly recommend!
Gloves look beautiful, color is great. Runs a bit small so I would suggest sizing up. Only downside is that the thumb is covered, would be nice if it could be free when mitten is up, but I believe it allows for better thumb mobility when closes. Awesome Patagonia product as always
Wish they were warmer
I like these gloves, but if the temperature dips below 20, they are not warm enough. That happens often living in Minnesota. I put another pair of finger gloves underneath them, but my hands are still freezing by the end of my walks when the temp is in the teens or below. If you live somewhere that the colder temps arent an issue, five stars. But i... Read Moref you live somewhere where the temp is consistently 20 and below in the winter, this will not be your best choice.
Good design; a few flaws
I like the design of these convertible mittens. The build quality seems solid and they are great for a long walk when the temperature may start cold before warming up enough to ditch the finger cover part. My one complaint is that the openings for the fingers are TIGHT. I don't think I have have particularly "chubby" fingers, but the... Read More openings being as tight as they are may defeat the purpose of the glove if they cut off circulation. Definitely buy a size up and see what you think.
My Favorite Gloves
I love these gloves. I have them in a M and just bought a L for my husband. (Both fit me, to be honest, but our hands aren't super different in size.) They keep my hands warm in literally any temperature from single digits to 50 degrees and up. Highly recommend! My only comment is they do pill pretty intensely after a while. If you have the p...

Great winter accessory.
Love these gloves! The diversity of the glove is great. Very cold, stay covered up. When it gets a little warmer, flip them open. With regards to sizing, I have a huge hand and the xl fit perfect. I do like the ability to use your phone for a quick pic or call without having to remove the glove. I've never found a glove that works with a phone... Read More.
Nice and comfy
Great gloves for casual wear. I have two minor suggestions for product improvement though. 1 - the finger holes are a tad tight. Not to the point of being uncomfortable, but noticeable enough that I am constantly pulling at them in an attempt to loosen. 2 - pull the button back towards the cuff ever so slightly where the mitten tops are secured. Th... Read Moreere is just a little too much slack in the current design and the loop unfastens on its own quite a bit. I usually wear these in 'mitten mode' though, so it is not a huge issue for me.
Perfect in Cold Temps
I'm a walker (I know I checked "running," but walking was not an option.) -- everyday. That means when it's 20 degrees, I'm still out there. I needed warmth, but I still needed to use my fingers from time to time. This pair of gloves is perfect. Believe me, I have tested them out almost everyday since I purchased them. I ev... Read Moreen purchased them for my friend -- also a walker. So, thumbs up (so to speak) from Eden, UT, where it was 17 degrees this morning. Thanks, Patagonia, for ALL you do for us (and the environment)!
So far everything about my new mittens is great. I bought them mostly for running. Running gloves never keep my hands warm. And usually the tips on the fingers dont work with my smart phone. These mittens are perfect. My hands are warm from the start of the run, I can use my actual fingers to work my phone without taking them off and when I get war... Read Moremed up, I can just uncover my fingers. Love them and plan to keep them forever.
Convenient and comfy, but runs small.
I like the design and they are comfortable as you'd assume, but I thought I was sizing up enough and was still wrong. The measurement around my knuckles is right at 8.5", I ordered a large and it's still too tight and I can't get the gloves to fit snug between my fingers. Will try the XL.
I want to love these but........
These gloves are fine if you wear them on a relatively warm day. Lots of air passes thru the material that covers your finger tips. This is not the same material as the Better Sweater - it is lighter. That being said, I'd take a Better Sweater in this material and color. I"ve been wearing these gloves on walks with the dog on days ranging... Read More 25-35 degrees. Once you are generating body heat, the gloves are fine. They are pretty mittens. I would have sent them back if they came with the rest of my order but the cost to ship them back is not worth sending by themselves. They glove length is quite short so if you have long hands, the elastic wrist band will most likely lie right at the end of your palm.
Hi Kris, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're sorry to hear about the disappointment with the gloves. The Better Sweater Gloves aren't the warmest that we offer so you may want to opt for something warmer like the [Nano Puff Mitts](https://www.patagonia.com/product/nano-puff-mitts/22425.html?dwvar_22425_color=COB&cgid=womens-hats-accessories-gloves-mittens#start=1). We don't want you to hold onto the gloves if they're not meeting your needs so we've reached out to you directly with some return assistance!
I wanted to love these mittens. I was hoping the accessibility of fingers would be helpful but they were just too thin to be practical for me. I need them for long walks with my kids and a general everyday mitten. The wind whipped right through them so I had to return. I got a size large as my hands measured 7.5” (top end of medium). They fit wel... Read Morel. Glad I read the reviews that they run a bit small.
Great fit and comfort
I bought the largest size (I am female with pretty average size hands) and the gloves fit perfect. They are very comfortable and easy to wear. They are great for being able to use my hands/fingers when I need to and still be warm (ish). When the temps are colder, they won’t be the warmest gloves I own but they are vest useful. I love them!
I bought the large for my father as a birthday gift. He is 5'9" and his hands are average size. I exchanged them for an extra large and the gloves are still too small.
Thanks for your feedback, Bryce! We're sorry to hear these gloves were too small for your father. If you'd like to return them, you are welcome to do so [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return). I would recommend checking out our [Wind Shield Gloves](https://www.patagonia.com/product/wind-shield-running-gloves/33336.html?dwvar_33336_color=BLK&cgid=mens-hats-accessories-gloves-mittens#tile-9=&start=1&sz=24) as an alternative. This simple, low profile style does not lack on warmth, and customers found them to generally run a little bit big.
This Design is Bad
The button is useless for keeping the mitten cover secured.

Comfy fabric, uncomfortable structure
I thought that these gloves would make a practical stocking stuffer for my daughters, but they made the ends of the fingers too restricting. Rather than fitting comfortably on your hands, the finger sections were sewn so that they fit very tightly. There's no ignoring it, or getting used to the tight fit. I have slender fingers, so it's c... Read Morelear that the design is flawed. I am returning them.
Better Sweater Gloves
I need winter mittens that can expose the fingers for taking pictures and these glove are perfect. They are a heavy weight and work well in the cold. The website is not clear that these gloved are unisex. The sizing guide indicates both men's and women's hand sizes, but they do not apply to the gloves. My women's had size is 7 and th... Read Moree medium fit well, however my husband's size 8.5 hand needed an XL size. Also, the fingers are quite snug, though I think that this due to the thickness of the knit, and I expect that will relax a little with use.
Was stoked to see these as the only convertible gloves I could find out there were poor quality. Initially, size was off. I thought I would need a small-ish medium and ended up with a large -- the medium was way too small. The bigger issue is the retainer for the mitten flap -- it doesn't work! The button (or loop, however you want to look at... Read More it) isn't positioned to the point that it stays secured back. I feel like no one at Patagonia actually tried wearing these before putting them up for sale. A snap button here, though it wouldn't look as good, would work much, much better. On the plus side, they're that lovely better sweater fleece we all know and love. I wore these out for a walk in very windy 40 degree weather and was plenty warm. Overall pretty good gloves, but not well thought out.
Great Gloves, Thumbs are Trapped!
I love my new Better Sweater fingerless mittens however, there isn’t a slit in the thumb to open for thumb access. This detail would be helpful for using door knobs, opening dog waste bags, using devices, etc. The gloves are warm and look great so I’m not returning, but four stars due to the missing thumb design detail. (May try to add it myself bu... Read Moret they’re still too new at this point for alterations.) As far as fit - I went by the glove size chart on the product page and that worked well to find my fit.
Ran very small, and it
Ran very small, and it feels as if the glove is cutting off the circulation to my fingers. 2 days in of using them and there’s a hole by the fingers as the stitching came undone.
We are sorry to hear that these are running too tight on you and that you are experiencing some issues with the stitching. We'd recommend that you [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) those back to us so we can get you either a refund or exchange for a larger size. Thanks for the feedback!
First, sizing. I tried to follow the adult glove sizing guide and this is what I got: circumference 8.5". Based on this, I could have ordered size M but have had problems with gloves being too small in the past and decided to go with a size up to be safe. So I was really surprised when size L barely fit on my hand - in particular the thumb len... Read Moregth, which was way too short. Anyway, I exchanged for size XL, which is much better but still a bit snug. My second observation is that the seam of the thumb runs more down the back and front, fleshy part of my thumb rather than the sides. Otherwise, I'm really happy with the quality of the materials - they're warm, seem durable, and are exactly the style I wanted.
These gloves are pretty good. They’re fairly warm but beware that they are fleece. Fleece is not known to block out wind and if you’re wearing these on a particularly windy day, you will feel that cold wind through your hands. Sizing was spot on so make sure you get the right size using the size chart.
