Mitts>>>>>Gloves

Mitts have about 1/5 of the stitching that gloves do, hence they are more durable and remain waterproof twice as long. I'm no fan of Burton, but their Gore Mitt is the shit. The 4 way stretch liners work great as spring/pipe gloves too. Kill two birds with one stone.

I think I am going to split the difference and check out some 3 fingered gloves. Thanks for all the help guys.

Friend has these mittens with removable liners and they are amazing. Was a bit jealous honestly...

I have some Black Diamond Renegades and they keep my hands toasty. Just kinda like the liner features.

I started with mitts and got sick of them. I got some Burton Gortex gloves on sale last year and they are superb. No more wet gloves after a day of riding!

I couldn't strap in properly etc. I guess I'm not a mitts guy. My hands get warm when I'm riding so I guess gloves work for me
