Following the sizing chart these should fit but when I put them on they are at least and inch to short and to narrow across the hand.
I in Anchorage and hunt all over AK, good cold gear is a must. Palm-finger 7 1/4” Cir 8”, bought a M.
It’s a little snug for wearing with anything but the thinner under gloves.
Tested it up to 1hr in -17F walking my dog. You won’t get frost bite, but you will be uncomfortably cold.
Tested it up to 1hr in 0-10F walking my dog. I did stay comfortable at that point.
I use them daily with my uniform and the dry earth goes perfect with the OCP color scheme.
The lanyard is super convenient for shedding them quickly for dexterity. If they bother you they can easily be removed from the loops. I love the versatility of the three finger and they are warmer when you move your pointer to the main mit, buys me about 10deg colder when I do that.
I expect to get some snowshoe hunting in soon and will edit this for capability with a shotgun.
I would absolutely recommend this for late season hunts in very cold. They just can’t make that leap to Arctic levels of sub zero, but I doubt that’s what they had in mind.
I haven't been able to hunt with these yet, but I wore them during our recent snowstorm and they were great. They fit a bit tight when they first arrived, but after breaking them in they are great. Love the wrist loop and the liner is removable for drying. Look forward to trying them during BC Whitetail next year.
Absolutely love these Grizzly 2.0 Trigger Mitts! They cut wind like no other and keep unwanted moisture from building up! Also, I like the fact that you can take the glove off and the wrist bracelet keeps the glove attached to you, essential with the Montana wind. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a all-in-one cold weather mitt!
I chose the Grizzly 2.0 for my overmitts on a recent trip to Antarctica. They performed wonderfully for hours spent glassing for seabirds in polar winds! I chose this glove because the description and reviews noted that it runs a bit small-- always a good bet if you're a lady shopping for outdoors gear-- and it was clearly the right one. Now it's time to get them in Cipher...
I am really close to being a true size M according to the sizing chart on this website. In fact, the circumference of my hand is actually closer to size S and than L, but the length is a slam-dunk size M, I read one of the reviews that the gloves ran very small so I decided to take a risk and go with size L. Thank you, whoever wrote that. The gloves arrived and the size L was a PERFECT fit with no glove liners on. I wouldn't want them a fraction smaller in any way. If you're usually between M and L in gloves, do yourself a favor and go with the L.
Now for the actual gloves:
What a great piece of equipment. I haven't used it hunting yet, but I took them to work and stood outside in -5° C (23° fahrenheit) for 4 hours without moving much. I layered up as usual but my hands are usually the first to go cold if I'm not moving. My hands were warm the whole time. The feel and overall quality of the gloves is GREAT. The shell, outer palm and inner glove just ooze quality. The wrist bands are a great touch and they do come in handy. I can't speak for the durability but I think these will stand the test of time if treated properly. That's why I'm giving them five stars even though they run a whole size small.
I tried pulling the trigger on my shotgun (Franchi Affinity) using snap caps and it wasn't too bad. Pulling the trigger took a little more effort than normally but it worked out fine. Pushing the safety button and then sliding the finger in was very doable. I have relatively small fingers so your experience may vary. With gloves this thick, this minor inconvenience is totally acceptable in my eyes and I plan on using these for waterfowl hunting in freezing weather.
I wore these during a November MT mule deer hunt. They were most utilized on the 45 minute quad ride, with temps in the teens and down to 0*, to and from the trail head. With my pointer finger moved over to the mitten side my hands stayed warm.
These gloves are a little bulky, but it is still easy enough to glass, with being able to pull binos in and out of their harness.
Would highly recommend these versatile gloves for the late season!
If you're hunting in any rain/snow sleet type conditions this is going to be a great glove for you. I thought the wrist leash was going to feel like a gimmick, they were awesome! Favourite feature of the Grizzly Trigger Mitt. I can't wait until Firstlite makes these into straight mitt ;)
Wore these for the first time the other day when it dipped down to 39 degrees. They are super warm and comfortable. Highly recommend!
Just got these in the mail today and I can already see the improvements made over the original model. The fit around the cuff is much nicer. They’re warm, relatively quiet and the suede snot pad is perfect!
