I bought these (similar to the Burton ones you listed but with the stormproof gauntlets to keep the snow out good'n'propa). Bloody impressed with them so far, Will be testing them at 0 degrees and below on the 19th in Tignes so will let you know after that but I'm sure you will be happy with many that you have listed, personally i would choose one which has the extended gauntlets to keep snow out. good luck

I bought my daughter some Burton mitts similar to the Under Mitt you listed. The nice thing is they have a vent pocket that you can throw hand warmers in if it's really cold. I bought a pair of the Burton AK Oven Mitts this year and love them, pretty expensive, but they are the warmest thing out there for sure.

I have rocked various versions of OR mitts for basically 15 years.. they have always lasted me as long as it took me to lose them and I never journeyed to the top of the line dogs you are looking at. Might have had all of the others though. I had the highcamps a few years back but lost one and picked up the meteors (last year or maybe year prior) which I still rock.

Loved the highcamps but the meteors have worked just as well. I like the liners which have a magnetic retainer for exposing your fingers/thumb... only really need the liners when the temp gets real low.

these ones.. Burton AK Oven Mitt - Men's - FREE SHIPPING at Altrec.com

they are more expensive but they are durable and you'll won't need another pair for a long time.

for an extra $40 i'd say they are worth it, nothing worse than cold hands. trust me when i say they are very toasty...

This.

As far as Mitts go these are the the most comfortable and warmest I have ever used. My only complain is the leather on the palm is a bit thin/cheap.

Hestra makes the perfect glove, but I have yet to find the perfect mitt.
