i have heard many good things about hestra just the last couple years as i try to learn from people with way more knowledge/experience than me (its like throwing a beer at a crowd in breck, chances are it hits a dude).
i currently use liner gloves with mits, using burtons now, they are fine, craftsmanship leaves something to be desired but they have 60-75 days on em and i bet there not half done. the liners wear out if you use them more than the mitts like me, but obviously pretty easy to replace.
my hands never get cold, my favorite days on the mountain are when its too cold for weekend warriors. anything above 20 and i'm usually roasting. irrelevant i realize, point is just on glove quality.
i tend to throw money at parts of my equipment that give me problems, if your hands get cold, a serious look at the extra $$ for hestra maybe worth it. also u can get those handwarmer things from the grocery store, alot of gloves have a spot you can stick them in for convenience.
