Who sells mittens with long cuffs?

What vendors sell snowboarding mittens with long cuffs. I saw a guy who had a pair of mittens on and the cuff went half way up is forearm. I have a pair of Dakine mitts with a cuff that goes up 3-4 inches and has a cinch, but powder still manages to find its way down the mitt. Just was curious.

Beats me. Sounds like alpine climbing gear to me. I've got wrist gaiters on my coat that pretty much make me invulnerable to snow up the glove or down the sleeve. Before that, my wife had made me some seperate wrist gaiters. They were a lot like this. They were certainly cheaper than any quality mitt like you're describing (not that the mitt isn't worth the money, I just didn't have $$$, used all my cash on the board ). They were pretty much a fleece tube that went up to my elbow with a hole for my thumb, wore them under my coat and slid my mitt over them. Nothing fancy, but it was damn effective.

I've got a pair of mittens that have really long cuffs but I can't remember the name of them off the top of my head. I'll look when I get home tonight. They're seriously long, probably 8-10 inches. They got up to about where a 3/4 length t-shirt sleeve would end.

Forgot I have em on me now. I have a set of Grandoes "Stick It" from years and years ago but they still work awesome. The outside is crazy sturdy material and they come with the glove/mitten inserts for colder days. I can't find them on any of their new products though.
