Mittens with mitten liners?

So my old school Dakine Mittens have finally bitten the dust after 15 years, and I'm going to need to replace them. I'd like to replace them with something almost identical if possible - but I can't seem to find anything.

Here is what I'm looking for:

Mitten
Removable MITTEN (not glove) liner
Goretex
Rubber Palm

Any suggestions?

those AKs have a leather palm (not that there's anything wrong with that, but the ORs are more rubbery).

OR will also likely shit all over the quality of Burton anything.

true dat about the leather palm.

However Burton AK 3L is heavy duty stuff, I've compared my 3L hover jacket and pants to a lot of other stuff including OR products, some of which are not as good, would compare better to the 2L products in the AK line.

My wife wears the hover mitt and swears by them.

the baker mitts are 3L

i've just had and seen way too much burton softgoods fall apart for no reason other than they're made shitty. i'll never buy anything but bindings from them, ever.

FWIW i'm 100% sure that more OR mitts have seen the summits of Everest, K2, Denali, etc. than burton AKs

Actually - the Meteor Mitts are more like what I'm looking for - if only the liners were single piece and didn't have the fold back finger flaps.

Don't want the leather palm, and aren't all the liners for the current Burton stuff glove liners?

the hover mitten has a glove liner not mitten liner so that also doesn't fit your needs, although you could just us a mitten liner instead
