Default Burton gortex gloves

I was thinking buy a pair new gloves since my $15 gloves is falling apart. Right now I am thinking either Burton Gortex under gloves or Burton Baker 2 in 1 under gloves.

My only concern about the gortex one is that it looks really puffy in the picture. Anyone used it before and can give me some advice or suggestions? Or just not buy Burton gloves?
thanks

Burton makes lots of good goretex gloves.

I prefer the AK hover mitt, but see the range:

For really cold weather, I use the Burton AK Oven Mitt. Otherwise I use the Burton Goretex glove. It comes with a removable inside glove, which is nice if it is getting cold and you don't have a pack to carry your spare mitt.

I do find their gloves wear out quickly, I get about a season and a half out of a the goretex one. With that said, a season for me is about 100 days.

Last season I tried the Burton AK Guide Glove, so far I am not happy with it. It is not warm at all and it freezes easily in wet snow conditions.

Gloves/Mitts at least for me is something I like to have a lot choices.

For people that use Burton gortex gloves, will the fingertip get cold easily? I normally go to Tahoe to snowboard will mitt be too warm for it?

What kind of temps do you ride in? I use mine for around -5C to -15C, which is around 14F. Usually around -20C I switch to my mitts.
