Default Gloves for Large Hands...?

It's time to replace my 10 year old gloves. Was wondering if anyone might have a recommendation for a high quality, warm glove that would fit a hand with long fingers. I live in the south and can't just run to a local store to try any on. Depending on the brand, my fingers usually jam up into the the tips of an XL glove - which makes wearing a liner tough (which is the reason I need a *warm* glove). I've tried mitts and just don't like them. I ordered some Dakine Titans and the XL was surprisingly small and they have to go back. Was considering Grandoe, Swany, Hestra, etc. But I don't know how they size.
Any suggestions - brands / styles? Oh, and I need a short cuff.

i have similar problems, this year i am trying pow xl gloves. I wore them the other day at lake louise and they were a bit tight but are leather so im hoping they will stretch a bit. I had level gloves last year but they were the long cuff and i think they would have been to small in a short cuff. Everything im talking about was in an xl btw.

I have found Dakine gloves to run long in the fingers but if that is not your experience, I guess you can cross them off the list. I have several pair of Swany gloves, both size XL men's. Unfortunately, they fit me like a proverbial glove. I don't believe I have very long fingers, so that is probably a no-go for you.

I have a pair of Dakine Broncos and they are quite warm, however I'm not sure how our fingers compare in proportion to our hands, my fingers are longer than most of my buddies, but the dakines fit me like a charm.

Thanks for the replies. I will add POWs to my list. Yeah, I was stoked to get the Dakines because I read a lot of positive things about them. But, when I put them on, I had to double check to make sure they didn't send me the wrong size. They were *super* tight. I mean, my fingers are long ... but I don't think they're insanely long. Just a little too big for the standard XLs - so I don't think I need anything special. Just something that runs 'on the big side'...

+1 for POW. I have bear hands and my hands fit, albeit snugly, into XL POW Sultan's. Very comfy though.
