Mittens NOT Built For Girls: Kinco Ski Mitts [Review]

Need a pair of mittens that look good on the slopes, après-ski, and with a chainsaw? Well, no one needs that, but the Kinco Ski Mitts fit the bill and are only $20.

I mentioned an earlier glowing review of the Kinco Ski Gloves and their mitts fill a similar niche with the same durable quality. Pigskin is the material of choice here. It out wears regular cowhide and blows fabric gloves out of the water.

The mitts come pre-treated with REVIVEX® waterproofing solution, though I’m not sure they need it. Most people would only wear mitts in the deep cold of the winter and unless you’re in a wet area, these would keep your hands dry all day.

Initially I was turned off the by attached 5-finger lining, but immediately changed my mind when I tried them on. Inside is a thermal lining that’ll make your hands feel like you left them behind in the hot tub while the rest of your body freezes on the slopes.

Used this last snowboard season and I love it. I’m still a newbie, fall quite a lot on black runs. I use sno seal to coat it

Cosmic Chatter says:

So, how did they stand the test of time in comparison to the gloves? This is a great video, I want a pair but can’t decide if I should get these or the gloves.


Hey what is the jacket you are wearing? I have been searching for it. If you ski, how well does it work for that, or any snow related activity. Thanks

THe ski patrollers out west swear by Kinco. THe guys up at the Glacier Ski shop below the Mt. Baker ski area highly recommend them. I have crazy big hands and find the XL size to be a great fit

Lucas Boshart says:

I really don’t understand why they would have a five fingered liner, seems like it would make them less warm with no added benefit?

J Shuda says:

Great review! Quick question on sizing – do these 901t run small or large? I realize they have the same glove liner inside, but I may cut that apart or out when I purchase these since I want to be able to put handwarmers in them when needed as well as a merino wool liner. I normally wear a size medium and size to that according to Kinco’s size chart, but I’m wondering if I should size up to a large to allow for the warmers and liner? Thanks!

I tried on the mittens (they weren’t the pigskin model) and was blown away at the price and the comfort.  That five finger lining is nice!  I found them at a work store and now due to your review I will be buying a pair or maybe the work gloves instead. Thanks, looks like you’re up at Big Bear.
