I go for bigger/longer over the cuff/sleeve gortex mitts shells because if in deep poo...swimming or digging yourself out, they are better for keeping the snow out...also easier to take on/off...pull up over the cuff and cinch the string and done. I also use fleece/wool liners for cold days or lighter wicking liners for warmer. And/when the liners get damp/wet, say after lunch, an extra pair to use to be dry and toasty. Extra liners are lighter and easier to carry than another set of gloves or mitts.
