Default Need new gloves

Hi everyone, I recently snowbaorded for the first time thi past Monday and I've fallen in love with the sport. I already have most of my gear which I purchased online, the only purchase that didn't quite work out was my glove purchase. I bought a pair of Grenade gloves but I ended up buying glvoes that were too thin. By the end of the day my gloves had frozen solid into an almost claw shape from spending so much time on my butt, pushing myself up, etc. Both of my hands were pretty much numb.

Anyway, I've learned my lesson and will be buying my pair of gloves from a local shop (Emilio's in Forest Hills, Queens). What brand of gloves should I check out, which gloves should I stay away from?

Dakine Titans are a good glove with GoreTex and liners. Usually $65.

Just checked them out online. I see that they're available in mitts and fingered style. Is there an advantage to wearing mitts rather than having gloves with fingers?

If you're looking for warmth. Mittens are always warmer than fingered gloves.

Mittens are warmer. Gloves make it easier to pick ice boogers out of your nose and manipulate objects like zippers.

I've been thinking about trying mittens.

Hmm, picking ice boogers is high up on the list of things I'll need to do when riding.
Thanks guys.

Or you can combine the best of both worlds and get 3 fingered gloves. A good company to look at is Hestra.

I got a pair of leather Swany mitts, easily the best mitts I have ever owned. Still warm and dry on season #3.

Tundra Glove

I recommend the Tundra glove from Grandoe.

You can even customize your own colors and personalize it too.
