What customers are saying about Polar Mitts...

I received two pair of your Polar Mitts today and they far exceeded my already high expectations. I learned of your mitts on a local news show and just had to try a pair, two actually. They are soft, comfy and warm, of the highest quality and good looking to boot. I'll be back for more and for gifts for Christmas 2018, I can't think of a better gift for everyone on my list.

I love to buy made in the USA, and made in MN is even better, do you ever do craft shows in Brainerd? Regardless I'll be back to your online store, even my Wisconsin cousins are going to get Packers snowflacke mitts.

I am 75 years old. Forty five years I was a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service. I walked six miles a day, summer, winter, spring and fall. I froze the tips of my fingers on both hands. Every time the temperature drops below 20 degrees, my finger tips burn.

I recently purchased a pair of your polar mitts and am ecstatic! My finger tips feel normal, even in below zero temperatures.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I am so happy with the Polar Mitts, Hat & Scarf I purchased from you at Canterbury Craft Show in Shakopee.  You may recall I was going to wear them on the float in the Faribault Parade of Lights, dressed as Mrs. Claus.  They are warm and beautiful and  I received SO many compliments on them.  It really added a lot to my outfit. 

Thank you so much for a wonderful product and I love that it is Minnesota made!

I have lived in Alaska for 41 years, but am a Northern Minnesota gal. I have also been sewing outdoor gear for 41 years for family and friends! This year I purchased your Northern European mittens and hat at our Alaska State Fair. They are amazingly beautiful. I thought I had the market on warm, but yours are the warmest ever!! I may be buying from you for myself and gifts instead of sewing my own! I love American made and the success of small companies. Don't ever change and I highly recommend your products for everyone "Up North."

I got my Polar Mitts as an exchange gift a few years ago. The fingerless faux fur gloves are the best Hockey Mom gloves ever!!!! Great for fingers-free photo taking and cell phone, easy to tuck fingers back in when needed. Warmest gloves I've ever owned and they wash up nicely too.

I have been a Preschool teacher for over 35 years, in Illinois where winters are very cold and kids still like to play outside. Three winters ago I was given a pair of Polar Mitts. I have worn them pulling children on sleds, building snowmen, making snow forts, etc. Polar Mitts are the only mittens that keep my hands toasty warm so I can "play" outside as long as the children want to play.

Once you own a pair of Polar Mitts you just can’t go back to any other brand! With the first flake in the late fall or the temperatures dropping, I begin to get the phone calls and emails from teachers in our district clamoring for more Polar Mitts to match their new winter garb or to keep their family members’ hands warm! In our home my teen-age sons didn’t care if they were black with leopard trim, if that’s all they could find, that’s what they would wear to head out into the cold. Warmth always wins over appearance!!!!!

Last Winter my husband and I owned only one pair of Polar Mitts. We like to go on walks together, and I would feel jealous of him if he chose the Polar Mitts out of the mitten basket before I got there to choose my mittens! Inevitably, the person without the Polar Mitts would have cold hands faster and want to head home sooner. This winter we will have two pairs of Polar Mitts. We are both looking forward to longer walks and warmer hands!

I received the polar mitts and my wife was so excited! We are going to get a pair for my daughter. She is just not able to keep her hands warm. My wife who has Raynauds disease swears by them. It is a circulatory disease that makes body extremities like hands and feet very susceptible to cold. Thanks again for your great product and prompt customer service.

As winter rolls around again I started to get my hat and mittens out.  As always I pull out my favorite pair of mittens that I got many years ago at a figure skating competition.  It had to be around 1998 or 1999.  I had seen the mittens at the competition but didn't buy them.  We were on the road to head back home and I made my dad turn around and go back to the rink to buy the mittens.  It was the best decision that I made.  I absolutely love your mittens.  I have worn them every winter since then and they still keep my fingers sooo warm.  The outside of them still looks great.  I still get so many complements today!
