Default What are glove gauntlets for?

Hi, so what are glove gauntlets for? I personally prefer the glove unders that slip under the sleeve of the jacket, but what are the gauntlets for? I find them kind of silly looking sticking out around the wrist. Are they superior in keeping snow out or more comfortable? Seems like if you stick your hand in snow or pow, snow would get in (come to think of it, it probably would too for glove unders).

I personaly prefer gauntlets. I tighten my jacket sleeves and pull the rubber of the gloves so they fit tight over the sleeves. Never had a flurry inside the gloves.

My jacket has fingerless gloves built into the sleeve. Then I slap a pair of mittens on that ride over the sleeve. Needless to say, no snow gets in. I am interested in the gauntlets though. Sounds like a cool concept.

I love gauntlets I have had gloves that went under the jacket sleves and I always got snow up my jacket sleves even though my jacket has duel sleves so the snow never got to my under layer it was very annoying. I have some Dakines now with gauntlets very warm and comfortable and I just tighten them up around my jacket and no more snow up the sleves.
