Wrist gaiters are a love hate thing. A lot of the higher end jackets actually dont have them. Yes, they may stop the snow initially...but when they get wet..they can actually become more annoying. I think the key is having a long cuff glove.

And agreed that putting gauntlets over your sleeves works better but looks dorky...haha. All the pros sport it under...so that must be the right way!

I usually go one under, one over in case I need to take a glove off or something.

I have had fine success with over and a synch, although I feel a lot has to do with the jacket. Right now I'm wearing a NorthFace Dolomite jacket and that thing has more ways to hook additional gear on to keep snow out than i know what to do with.

But another reason I like the over is because it seems to go with the grain of when my hands go through snow.

I didn even wear a jacket all of feb or march. So I guess they were over the cuffs of my hoodie.
