Default Decent budget mitt?

This will be my second year of boarding, and im looking for a decent mitt and liner to wear. Where i live, the lowest it gets is about -30 C*, so they would have to stand up to that. For the mitt and liner, i dont want to go over about 60 or 70 bucks. Any suggestions?

So far, i was thinking of these:

MEC Overlord Mitts (Unisex) - Mountain Equipment Co-op. Free Shipping Available

MEC Cascade Gloves (Unisex) - Mountain Equipment Co-op. Free Shipping Available

try the on for size, look at any mittens/gloves on the-house or department of goods, you'll get better gloves and a better deal

MEC is a good bet especially in Canada, pretty durable stuff for a good price. Once you start looking in the US the shipping and duty can eat a big part of that budget. If you are in Canada you can try to see what is in your range from some of the shops listed in here http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...e-tailers.html .

I have some Dakine Element mitts. They're pretty great, and I picked them up for under $50 and that's after shipping. The liner they come with also pulls double duty as a spring/pipe glove.

Alright, sweet. I'm going to tommy soon so I'll check them out

the only thing im worried about with burton, is that im paying more for the name then the product. is this true, or does burton make really good gloves for the price?
