Know of a good "over" mitten with wrist leashes?
 
I'm looking to change from gloves to mittens. The Burton Oven seems to be a great mitten, but I don't like wearing my jacket sleeve over the glove cuff...makes it too hard to get the glove off and back on, which I tend to do a lot. I want a warm mitten that has a wrist leash (so they just hang there when they're off) and will cinch up OVER my jacket cuff. Anybody know of any good ones like that?

Level Half Pipe Mitt Xcr. Larger cuff with a pull string. Wrist lease you don't notice when on you hand. Built in wrist guard that you can remove if you wish. Removable glove type liner. Gore-tex. Kevlar tip and thumb. I'm on my third season of the glove version and they still look almost brand new.

My reccomendation is the Dakine Element Mitts. They have all of the features you are looking for, plus they're super warm and waterproof. Mine are on their third season and still going strong.

I also have a Level Halfpipe Mitt, great gauntlet style mitten. 3 of my group half it.

I got a pair of leather swany's and I couldn't recommend them enough, there on their 4th season and still going strong.
But you just need to look for gauntlet style mitts.

I just copped a pair of Dakine Titan Mitts and they are the BEES KNEES!!! I have the shittiest circulation in America and even these mitts kept my hands nice and toasty in pretty cold conditions. They are Gore-Tex (can't get more waterproof than that) and at $65.00, they are probably the most affordable for what they do.
