Burton Hi-Fives and Swany Toasters are both made with zippers that run down your first finger, so you can get your fingers out without taking the whole mitten off. I've looked into them for photography. There's also a company out of Japan called Axes Quin
that has an even better looking design (longer gauntlets, mostly), but I'd have to pull some strings to get them. Don't know if they'd be easier to come by in Europe or not.
