The Heat Company SHELL Overview

These black SHELL Mittens in size 9 from The Heat Company keep your vulnerable hands and fingers warm and protected from the elements. 

Made from windproof and highly water-resistant material, the mittens have goatskin leather palms that are not only tough and wear resistant, but provide a secure and slip-resistant grip. Each mitten is lined with warm and comfortable Primaloft Gold insulation. When you need to use your fingers to operate a camera, access your phone, check your stats on a sport watch, or perform any one of a thousand tasks, simply fold back the finger and thumb flaps to expose your digits. A magnetic clasp keeps the flap out of your way, so it won't interfere with what you're doing. For added protection without sacrificing dexterity, layer the mittens over a pair of optional liners.

An adjustable cinch at the wrist has straps that allow you to remove the mitten from your hand without having to put it down where it can get filled with snow or lost. Slip a disposable hand warmer into the small, zippered pocket on the back of the hand, or use it to stow small accessories like credit cards or your ID.

The size 9 mitten fits 7.9-8.8" hands, measured around the palm of your dominant hand just below the knuckles. The Heat Company recommends sizing up if you are in between sizes.

The Heat Company SHELL Reviews

Bulky /Does not help if you have Raynauds

I purchased the liner and the mittens. I wanted these for photography in cold weather. The mittens are very bulky if you have small hands. I found it very difficult to handle camera with the mittens on. I have Raynauds. These nor the liner did anything to keep my hands warm . Maybe if one does not have Raynauds, they might be sufficient.

Great gloves!

These work perfectly and allow me to pair them with many different liners for whatever occasion or temperature requirements needed!

Great Product!

I've used the Heat Company shells twice now on early winter mornings here in Maine. Air temps were in the 20s and my hands felt perfectly comfortable. When I pulled back the covers over my fingers, on which I had liners, I was able to operate the functions on my camera quite easily. The system worked very well for me.

Worked great!

I hesitated to buy these because of the price, but I'm glad I did finally get them. They kept my hands warm enough on a trip in Alaska, standing out in the cold with my camera for hours on end. Love the wrist straps, the place for hand warmers over my fingers, the long cuffs and everything about these mittens. The only change I would make would be to have the zipper on the inside of the hand go the opposite way, so only my index finger needed to be exposed to the cold, and also then that zipper pull would have been out of the way of my index finger, but it wasn't a big deal. Definitely recommend.

Not worth the money.

I bought this in conjunction with POLARTEC LINER GLOVES. They are over engineered. I found using the Elastic Wrist Straps and not the Finger & Thumb Flaps with Magnet Clasp is much quicker. So simpler mittens will do the job better for less money and equal efficiency. That would land a 4 star rating. BUT the liners DID NOT WORK, so I'm very generous with 3 stars.

Good design, maybe poor manufacturing

The good: The fingertip covers stay in place when flipped back. The gauntlet with two cinch cords is wonderful. The zippers don't let in any cold air. The bad: The palm zipper slider broke during the first hour I was wearing these--the metal casting snapped. Luckily, it broke with the zipper closed, since the windchill was -30 F and I was two miles from the car.

Best Glove System Ever!

When these gloves are combined with a good pair of liners, the warmth, comfort, and versatility, are simply unmatched! Print and use the measuring tape to ensure a good fit and you cannot go wrong. These are highly recommended!

Warm and Comfortable

These shells are very comfortable. I have not worn them in a subzero environment yet, but I believe given the choices of gloves available everywhere, that these are the best choice if you need to make camera adjustments in very cold weather.
