Search over...thanks guys. After all of your input, I was down to three mittens:

Dakine Legacy $60
Sway X-Change $94
Burton Gore Tex $70

Just grabbed a pair of brand new Dakine Legacy's on eBay for $31

A lot of these gloves are very similar - Dakine, Burton, North Face, etc. all have/had them in various color schemes, either as finger gloves or mittens or both. They all come from the same manufacturer/sourcing company in China.

Pretty decent gloves/mittens actually. Not the longest lasting, but pretty decent quality overall. Enough insulation for the milder days and when it gets colder you can wear the liners inside them. Gauntlet is nice and long enough to keep the pow out. Good thing about GoreTex is that even if the liners (which are normally not water or wind proof) get wet, the moisture will evaporate through the breathable GoreTex layer.

From my experience the GoreTex stuff isn't very breathable, there are other materials that are just as waterproof but more breathable.

I picked up a nice pair of Swany toasters - no leashes but they have a zip on the side so you can release your fingers. No need to take the mitts off.

Zip on the side seems to be an infraction into insulation, also letting the heat out when you do answer the phone. No?
