Mittens!

I am currently looking for some new mittens to purchase.

I dont want them to be bulky and they have to be warm!

I've never wore mittens before, only gloves, but I'd like some for the extra chilly days on the mountain.

any recommendations?

I have the snowlife gxt mitten 3years (120days) now and am very happy with them. Ggood quality, durable, comfy and good adjustability. They come with removable upper and lower wrist guards.

Goretex outer component is the way to go.

I like the burton goretex ones, they come with 2 different linings.

Course I pretty much like everything burton.

I've always had great experiences with the candy grind handbag mitten, only downside really is they are expensive as shit.

I like the burton gore-tex mitts, good durability and you can always find them on sale. The Burtons use a removable glove linner for added warmth. I got my gf a pair of volcom gore-tex mittens a few season ago. They've held up really well and she rarely complains of cold hands now. Volcom uses an interesting split linner design to manage warmth, so depending on which side of the linner you put your hand, you get more, or less insulation.

based on what? Now oakley wants nothing to do with you either!

I have a couple hundred days on some burton gtx mitts that are holding strong.

Last year I switched to work style liftie gloves like $20. Plenty for me 99% of the year.

I like the Burton gore tex mittens. With touch screen liners so I can remove the mittens and still have my fingers covered while using my phone, drinking whiskey or getting "happy"!!!!

Burton HI-Five mitt. Side zip to get your fingers out without having to pull the glove off and whatnot. Those and the Celtek U-Tube mitt are the only gloves I wear.

POW Stealth mitts. Cuff is a bit on the short side, but damn those things are toasty.

Candygrind mitts are very nice as well.
