Default Mittens?

Alright, whenever i get myself a pair of gloves, they tear quick and that whole shabang. I'd like to give mitts a try. What are some quality mitts out there? $40-$60 price range?

Thanks.

I have some Dakine leather gloves that get soaked super easy, so I got myself a second pair of mitts for 15$ made by Drop… super comfy and warm … I'm converted.

Look for ones on sale. Can usually be found under $40.

I'll throw another recommendation out there for Outdoor Research stuff. You'll stay dry and warm all day and they have a Lifetime Warranty...pop a seem or anything and they will replace them free.

I've got the Dakine rasta mitts and they're absolutely awesome. Super warm and never get wet.

They're too warm for really sunny days though. Makes your hands sweat like crazy.

I think whatever you get should have the zipper running up the index finger to slide out you fingers in case you need to do something more dexterous than what can be accomplished using a mitt.

my gf got me the northface montana mitts and im surprised how nice they are. waterproof, and keeps the snow out. it was between 45-50 yesterday so my hands got a little sweaty at points but the inside doesn't seem to retain moisture.
