Default mittens vs gloves?

I have a pair of gloves for snowboarding and they are on their last leg.


Only complaint is cold fingers. Would mittens be a better way to go, since the fingers are together and the heat is less likely to be dispersed?

Thoughts?

Mittens all the way for me. More comfortable, warmer, and let's be honest but dexterity in gloves sucks anyway.

last year we had our annual trip on the coldest spell of the winter. Hotel is already booked, lift tickets purchased, days off work already taken you just dress warm. When we hit the hill it was -10*F without windchill added in. I have gloves and my hands never got cold, my face another story.

Personal choice more than anything

Plus they also have this hybrid type glove/mitten

Depends on what u need. 99% of the time mitts are too hot for me, so I like to wear cheap lifty/work style gloves.

Its nice to have a good pair of mitts for the cold days to be sure.

Snagged these off Whiskey for 9 bucks this summer...anybody use this brand before?

Mitts or lobsters.

Hudson Collective is about to destroy all. But my Howls have actually held up very well. Celtek Trippin Pros should be pretty money. Real leather and Outdry. Then Rad is doing beefy nylon full silicon palms. Depends on what you need where your money goes really.

Oh and Slyder, Phunkshun merino Ballerclava for your face. And the ultra cold days I combo that with a 2L or my trusty hardshell.
