Rated 2 out of 5 by RIBeacher from Disappointed In recent years I have purchased Chopper Mitts for my dad and myself and have found them to be fantastic. The leather seems to hold up well, but the knitted mitten liner wears out rapidly. L.L. Bean is anxious to promote the Buckskin Mitt Chopper, but does not offer replacements for the knitted mitten liner. They must know that these liners wear out leaving the customer with a cold damp leather mitten. They should make the replacement liners available to customers, thus providing customers with the total positive customer experience. I am looking for two pair of XLG kitted mitten liners. Please advise where I can obtain them. Thank you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Manwithdogswalking from Look good, not durable These mittens looked and felt great! Nice and soft. I didn't use them for chopping. I mostly used them when I was snow blowing out my driveway, or carrying in groceries. After just a few weeks, the woollen inners started to wear; within a month, they were holed. The leather is nowhere near waterproof, so my hands were 1. cold 2. wet. After a few months, the leather is worn. Repeat--I didn't use these mitts hard! I've already bought replacement mitts. I'm disappointed. Like much LL Bean, some stuff is great quality, well made, lasts; other stuff, not so. These mitts are the latter. If you're doing anything more vigorous than walking, I don't recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SnowBody from Highest Quality Mittens I've Ever Seen I hesitated to get these choppers because of the price. Once having seen them and tried them out, I was convinced it was a good purchase. I followed the sizing guidance which resulted in a medium and very good fit. The leather has a quality look and soft feel and the liner is plush. I have been blowing snow in sub zero weather for over an hour at a time. I'm not saying my hands were warm when I came inside nor were they uncomfortable. I believe the insulation provided by these mittens against the handle bars and levers of my snow blower is probably better than a material that can lose its thermal insulation quality when compressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Collegecampus from College Student These choppers are hands down the best gloves I have ever owned. I am a student at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. It gets cold here. Real cold. Today air temp was 8 below zero on my walk to my first class, without windchill (much worse). My entire body was cold, minus my hands. I played hockey with these a few weeks ago, air temp was 19 below. Again, everything cold but my hand-I don't use hand warmers either. If you are debating buying there, do it. I know $60 is expensive-again college student-but there are the best gloves I have ever owned, and will be buying again when I need a replacement. Waterproof them before and you are good to go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by llbought from Buckskin Mittens To start with, I hate mittens. But a while back shoveling snow while it was snowing my hands were near frozen. Wool gloves as liners with leather insulated outer did not work. So, I went for these mittens. Yesterday we had a Northeaster with blizzard conditions. Got to tell you my hands were warm and dry. I had no difficulty handling the shovel and my hands slipped out of and into the mittens with ease. I would go with a 5 except I noticed the buckskin stained easily. They were wet and I put them on the counter to dry and they picked up a stain from a magazine cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from WARM!!! I live in Massachusetts and was looking for a way to keep my hands warm when walking our dogs. I had purchased several different pairs of gloves but my hands were still cold. I was not a big fan of mittens, until I tried these, but tired of having cold hands so decided to give these a try. My hands have been very warm during 40-50 minute walks in low twenty degree temps and down-right hot in 30 degree temps! Size might be a little on the bigger side as I typically wear a size Large and these seem bigger than most. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and would highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CombatCarl from Finally, mittens that work 31 years ago I owned a pair of wool-lined leather mittens and they saved my hands after a canoe accident in icy water and a 30-minute, soaking wet hike. Unfortunately they were lost in my youth and I never could find another pair in stores. I still can't find any but am thrilled these wool-lined work horses are still offered at LLBean. I had to think about the price but after another bad experience in sub-zero weather with "modern" fabric mittens (that don't perform when wet) I broke down and bought these. They're just as I remembered and my fingers are thanking me every time I wear them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jonara from Excellent and super warm I commute daily by bicycle year-round in New England. Keeping my hands warm in single digit temps with the wind generated by cycling has always been a challenge. I bought a pair of these about a year ago now and have used them many, many times while cycling and winter camping (boy scouts). They are incredibly warm and windproof. They are durable enough to use around a campfire and work great on my bicycle commutes. After a year I've worn a few holes in the wool liners, but I'll pick up a replacement pair the next time I'm in the store. Would definitely buy these again.
