You guys rock. Thanks for all the replies!
I do have a question about fitting though. My finger tips go right to the edge of the mitten, but my thumb has about 1cm of slack to the edge (wont happen in an L). The size is an XL and there is lots of width in the finger area for room (good thing?)
The mittens come with an removable inner glove as well, but the inner glove on the L didn't quite go down my wrist and felt uncomfortable. So I went with the XL.
Should I go down to an L for a slimmer fit on the mit, or is it okay to have it a little bulky?
