Default Pow Gloves?

Ok, so this morning i woke to a horrific scene of my puppy tearing my Dakine Cobra gloves to shreds. I really liked those gloves, and they were good at keeping my hands warm until it got to be below 32F or so.

So i'm now searching for some gloves and i'm really interested in POW gloves, it seems like they tend to get good reviews.

This glove would be my main glove for riding in all conditions here in So Cal. (but if it gets below 32F i intend to use my mitts)

My hands are pretty big and rather bonny so my hands get cold a lot easier than most other people.

I was looking at the

Royal Glove (looks great to me, but if i can get away with a cheaper glove i'd like to)
Villain Glove (like the look of this one, but doesn't look to be that warm)
Tanto Glove (worried it may limit movement too much)
Zerow Glove ( worried it might be too cold)

Anyone have any experience on how these gloves feel and perform?
and if u have worn dakine gloves, how do they compare?

Thanks in advance!

.............Where do you ride where the temperatures are not normally below 32F?

Why would you wear gloves that don't keep your hands warm under typical ski/snowboard conditions (i.e. below 32F)
I see that you are in southern California, but I still have problems believing that the conditions are that warm out there (regularly above 32F) if snow (even artificial snow) is still on the ground?

Villains or Tonics. Unless you have poor circulation. In that case Tanto's.

What is the daily high on top of the mountain?

There's no way you'd keep any snow on the ground with daily highs of 40 and the sun shining. No way, Jos!

I have had Tonics, and my friend has Tantos. And from what I can tell the Villains are basically the leather equivalent of Tonics.

They lasted me as long as any other gloves have. A season. I'm apparently hell for gloves. I would guess a large.
