OR Meteor Mitts - $41 on Campsaver
I think this is a decent deal on the OR Meteor Mitts on Campsaver, but only small and medium are available. Good for women. I'm hoping they will be comparable to the more expensive BD Mercury Mitts:http://www.campsaver.com/meteor-mitts-men-s
Having owned a pair of BD Mercuries, I'm guessing those would be warmer than these. These have a 300-weight fleece liner and then the shell. The Mercuries have a liner with 284g PrimaLoft and high-loft fleece inside, plus the shell.
I got them yesterday, and the Meteor's have a pretty awesome system. I love that you can expose your fingers with the liners for finer work and that they have magnets to hold the covers back while you work. A good investment for winter camping!

just be wary that magnets will mess w/ your compass, if you rely on that sort of thing...
