The Swany Legend II stands out for its unique construct and fancy features. With a thin mitten leather exterior and an insulated gloved interior, this mitten does not only provide great dexterity but also decent warmth. It features a peek-a-boo zipper pocket in the leather shell that allows easy access to the touch-screen compatible liner. This is a great feature that allows you to keep your hands warm while using your phone outside.
We also liked this zippered pocket for quick and easy ventilation. Even though this mitten-glove hybrid has many benefits, we do have a couple of caveats. First, the glove is not very water resistant, unlike the Dakine Tundra Mitt - Women's. Second, even with the pocket, the whole mitten is not extremely breathable without unzipping the pocket. As a result, we think the Swany Legend II is a great resort option in dry climates. It's also perfect for any lady looking for a unique combination of good dexterity and warmth!
