Under or Over when it comes to Gloves or Mitts?

Just thought I'd ask this question and see what the results are. I know it makes little difference when it comes to warmth or performance. It's more of a preference when it comes to which you prefer, under-glove or over-glove?

Mine is under glove or mitt, I truly hate over gloves due to having to cram the cuff of your jacket into the gauntlet. To me it seems so weird, like pulling your socks over your pants. Some people argue its easier to get snow in your jacket but I've never had an issue with it. To me an over glove looks bulky and cumbersome, difficult to get on and off, and a pain in the ass in general.

Again it's preference and I see lots of riders using over gloves but to me I see more skiers using them these days. Still it's how I prefer to ride and I won't buy a glove or mitt these days that isn't designed to go under my jacket cuff.

My wife rides with over gloves combined with pow cuffs in her jacket that hook on the thumb so it's easy to get the sleeve to fit under.

I wear under gloves and my jacket has Velcro at the cuffs to tighten them onto the gloves.

I have and use both types. I go by what works best with the cuff on a particular jacket.

I tuck the glove. Velcro on the jacket does just fine hangin on.

Depends on the glove I would imagine, since most snowboard jackets have velcro on the cuffs, it could go either way.

I go over on mine, fits over the cuff nicely. Couldn't imagine going under, unless I got a new glove.

My mitts have gauntlets. I use them. I personally find it easier to have them over rather than under. I also find it to be warmer for me since my old under gloves were always popping out of my jacket sleeves and letting snow in.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Under the cuff of the jacket for sure. I can't stand tucking my jacket into my glove...
