I have the Candy Grind hand-bags which have that zipper on the index finger, and I'm liking them a lot. They aren't in the $40-50 range though... nearly $100.

But they've kept me warm and part of the reason I got them was because my hands get really hot, so having that zipper lets me cool down if necessary.

Having owned many a pair of gloves/mitts, I have to say I have been disappointed with every one that retailed below like $80.

Try targeting a higher end product on Ebay. That is what I did last time. I got $90 gloves for $50, new with tags.

Still wish I'd just bucked up and bought Hestras though...

Flylow gear ridge leather mittens, as long as you keep them waxed thay are pretty water resistant and bombproof.
