As general comments, here are things that I have liked and hated about gloves:
1) My current pair of Dakines have a real issue with the liner. It's attached at the wrist, but floats free inside the glove. So if I pull out my hand, the fingers come partly out of the shell. When I try to put the hand back in, I'm faced with forcing the liner back into place, which is surprisingly difficult with cold wet hands. This is a total showstopper, and having experienced this I will NEVER buy another set of gloves that even MIGHT have this problem.
2) Stitching that starts coming unravelled pisses me off. Don't make your shit cheap.
3) I love having a goggle-cleaner on the outside of a thumb.
4) I know some people don't like the wrist straps (so you can take your gloves off and dangle them) but I love those and won't buy gloves that don't have them.
5) I like removable liners, but that's not a showstopper either way.
6) I like long cuffs. Some gloves are just too short. Won't buy them.
7) Waterproofing is more important than insulation, if you have to compromise. Wet insulated gloves are useless.
