Default Making the switch to gloves, recommendations before i hit the shops

I've been faithfully using a set of Burton Universe Mitts for the last 8+ years. I think the time has finally come to upgrade them. For a while I've wanted gloves to have more dexterity while wearing them on the slopes.

I mostly freeride, in a lot of different conditions (Northeast). So a versatile glove would be great, what I'm looking for:
  • under-the-cuff
  • removable liner
  • Chamois-style wiper

Any recommendations? Thanks.

Burton Gor-tex under glove w/ liner. Keep my hands warm. Plus, they have a rubber texturized palm and finger area which helps with dexterity.

Like these. But, I'm sure you can find them cheaper: Burton Gore-Tex 2012 Guys Black Under Glove at Zumiez : PDP

No love? I checked the forum, seems like the DAKINE titan gloves are often recommended. Any other gloves?

Been using the Dakine Titans for a few years and absolutely love them. I'm using the ones with a longer gauntlet though, still easy enough to get under my sleeve.

For gloves dakine is now my backup. They are awesome gloves and lasted me 3 years. I have a pair of level fly w/biomex that I really like and are my #1 glove. I just got some celtec trigger mitts for christmas that are awesome, got 15 days on them before taking my leg out....

The dakines are in a good price range, super warm and durable.

I'm using Dakine Scout gloves and they've been good for me. I think they're over-the-cuff but I put them under anyway. Hands are never cold and messing with my bindings is easy. Worth a look maybe.

Dakine has some really really good high end products however their lower end gloves are rather unreliable. I like the ones with the wrist guard plates in them ( im at the er with my buddy who broke his wrist going for his first cork 360 this morning lol i landes mine but i had the wrist guard ones so hes s.o.l for going cheap on gloves)

From the Dakine product line, the Titans are their higher-end, correct? The Level Fly gloves look good too!
