How the LEKI Xplore XT Lady Mitts

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Lined with Primaloft, these mittens are waterproof, windproof, and non-bulky so you won’t be restrained. The Xplore XT Lady Mitts are specifically designed to fit women and have a slightly wider cut that helps with heat retention.
  • Value: 7/10. The mittens are pricey, but the waterproofing and warmth may be worth it for frequent skiers.
  • Durability: 10/10. The exterior of the mittens is made from SOFT-TEX, a flexible and soft layer that resists water and wind and will last for a long time.
  • Portability: 9/10. The Primaloft lining keeps these mittens on the slimmer side without sacrificing warmth.
  • Cool Factor: 9/10. The mittens have an all-black design that looks good.
