Default Dakine gloves/mitts?

Dear Dudes & Dudettes,

I need a new pair of gloves or mittens and 've been looking at Dakine. Been eying the Skyline mitts, among others, but the problem is I have really sweaty hands so I need something really breathable. Is Gore-Tex my only choice? Also, I need "idiot chords" and I don't know which Dakine models have that.

My experiences with Snowboard gloves/mitts so far:

Level V Adventure mittens. Good, but since my hands get sweaty they get wet, and it takes them more than a day to get dry on the radiator ---> Issues with breathability.
Burton Pyro gloves. Pure Shit. Don't keep the moisture out and a seam popped after 4 days usage.
Pow Mega gloves. Seemed good but unfortunately their XL is size L, and thus too small for me.

What are your experiences with Dakine with respect to all of the above? Any advice?
