Gloves or Mittens?

In general, do you guys where gloves or mittens?
I was also looking at the POW Shocker glove. It looks really nice, has good reviews, etc. Are these gloves warm?

Gloves. You need to be able to articulate your fingers while riding.

wat do u need ur fingers for while riding? u may need ur hands sometimes, but i dont see u needing ur fingers. so i prefer mittens, as they keep ur fingers warmer.

both...i got the burton glove / mitten, where the inside is a glove so you can still strap in, the shell is a mitten that's waterproof. I prefer mittens as my fingers / hands get cold pretty easily, so being able to move them around helps. You can also hold handwarmers inside most mittens

i think you can do all that with mittens. you still have opposed thumbs. i prefer goretex gloves, as my hands get really warm, even in negative temps.

This.

Mitts are warmer, but gloves are just easier all around.

I prefer gloves but when it is really cold I wear mittens. I can pretty much do everything with mittens that I can with gloves.

i completely disagree, most of the time people end up pulling a glove off to do things like change the songs on an i pod and what not, i ride with mittens and have never ever had a problem strapping in. My mittens are also super sick because i can unzip the top part around the knuckles of my hand and stick my fingers out of it if i need to do something with my fingers. its the best of both worlds, but dont tell me your supercapable of changing songs and shit on your ipod with gloves on anyways. Mittens are warmer.



mittens ftw especially if you can find some like mine but iv never seen another pair.
