When the other guys call their mitts "waterproof", they don't mean "immersion proof". They typically use a polyurethane coated shell and call it good. First of all, if the seams are not PU taped, they will leak. Second, these type of W/B fabrics are more suitable for jackets and bibs, or for gloves not subjected to water exposure. Lastly, the other guys do not use Hipora liners that work like a breathable latex glove. If you want a mitt that will repel snowflakes and raindrops, feel free to buy the competitor's gloves. If you want FULL IMMERSION PROTECTION, get the Striker ICE Climate Mitts.
Climate Mitts are properly sized for a great fit! There is nothing worse than a mitt that is sized for a baby's foot! Easy on and off gauntlet makes it a snap to quickly put on or take off. This mitt has variable Thinsulate insulation with extra insulation (up to 200g) where you need it and less insulation where you don't need it, like in the gauntlet.
