Default recomendations for gloves that allow you to still use your hands.

I'm looking to get a new pair of gloves but still want them to be functional so that you can still adjust you goggles, zippers, and get stuff out of you jacket packets. My current Burton gloves are so thick in the fingers that i have trouble doing most everything. Any one have a good glove that is warm but still allows for good movement?

Hestra IME have the best dexterity but aren't exactly the warmest. My dakine stingrays and broncos have been pretty good as well. I don't wear any liners with my gloves though

I just got a pair of gordinis from dicks website haven't tested them on the slopes but tried them at the house. They have leather on the finger caps for good grip and aren't overly thick. Seem really warm too. They also have a pouch for handwarmers. they are a little pricey at 60 but I was sick of cheap overly bulky gloves.

Have a pair of POW Tantos that sorta allows you to do that. It's warm and not too bulky. Maybe a different line in the POW brand would give you what you need.

I got a pair of Candy Grind Handbags for Xmas, but haven't tried them out yet.

They are a mitt which has a zipper than runs the length of your pointer finger, so you can unzip it and use your fingers for whatever you need to do, then zip it back up.

They come with liners inside, but my hands are usually always really hot so I probably won't use the liners. The zipper was the main feature on the mitt for me though, as like I said, my hands get hot and it will be nice to unzip that during the ride up the lift or whatever, to let my hands cool down and dry out.

Generally speaking you will either get dexterity or warmth. The warmer the glove, by definition it requires more between your finger and the outside of the glove so will be bulkier.

A quick and easy solution is to use a liner glove so that you can take your main glove off to do zips etc but still have some warmth. Certainly not ideal though.

Best bet I would say would be to look at more mountain/climbing oriented gloves rather than snowboarding specific ones. These are usually more aggressively articulated than snowboard gloves are due to the nature of needing to be dextrous for climbing. Brands such as Rab, Mountain Equipment, Haglofs Arcteryx etc have some great gloves. If you want to go ultimate warmth/dexterity then the Arcteryx Alpha SV/Vertical SV gloves are basically as top as you can get but they will cost you a bit!... Phenomenal dexterity and fit for the warmth though.

Pretty psyched on my AK guide for this reason.. Pretty warm but plenty dextrous, not at all like my bulky old AK gloves from 6 yrs ago...

these are what i have and love them. the zipper is handy for when you need to use your hands or vent them a bit and the liners are super waterproof so make great pipe gloves. i havent even used the mitts yet cause they are so damn warm, just been rocking the liners. the only downside is they are a little pricey coming in at around $90

Another one for the candygrind stuff. I have The CG glove and while it tore up pretty quickly (they look quite worn, now), they have held up extremely well. They are, however, not super warm like something from Mountain Hardware, but a pair liners gives them enough versatility for almost any in bounds riding.

I was between the candy grinds and POW Tantos, but decided to get the Tantos this time because they were 40% one site i found them on so i was able to scoop them up for $43 and free shipping. will definatley check out candy grinds next time. I wish i lived close to a big ski / snow board shop so i can actually see things in person, buying otter wear is so hard on the internet when you cannot try things on.
