How many of you trade off the dexterity of gloves for the warmth of mittens?

I always wear mittens and find I rarely ever need the dexterity of gloves.

I have mittens, trigger mittens and gloves for the warmer days. I stick with burton (mittens only), celtek, POW and candy grid. Personally I use mittens the most but I do like a good glove from time to time.

I have known since I was a kid that regular gloves just can't keep my hands warm. I did however just recently purchase a pair of fleece gloves with phone touch tips for my mitten liners. On one fairly warm day, I found I only needed to use them to stay warm. And they aren't even waterproof. It was a nice change as I admit I liked the little extra added dexterity they allowed, but for 90% of the time, on regularly cold days? I will ALWAYS use mittens.

I have mine looped on my wrists and if I have a task that needs the extra dexterity, I pull them off and still have the thin liners to keep my hands warm during that brief exposure. Works great for 99+% of my needs.

Mine came with glove inserts too but its such a pain taking the mittens off to get to the gloves... Especially because I wear them UNDER the jacket. Maybe I should try over as that would probably be quicker...

I wear my liners IN the sleeve, over the wrist gaiters, Mitt's are gauntlet type, go OVER the jacket sleeve! Much less of a pain in the ass than frozen fingers!!
