I like the OR(Outdoor Research) mitt shells. I'd buy the gore tex mitts if you can. Make sure to get the model with the grippy rubbery palm and thumb. You can wear thick mitten fleece liners if it's cold out, or smaller mitten liners, or any thickness glove liner also. I've had mine for many years and they work great.

I'll only get Rome, Drop, and Burton gloves. I like the Burton AK Tech, the Rome Hoss, the Drop Roots, Rome Emblem, Burton GMP R.P.M., Burton Might Mit, Drop Apex.

I just got mine Rome Index gloves, the warmest in their line. Not sure about durability since I've worn them once, walking the dog, this morning. I can say they are very warm, but not very dexterious. I'm sure they will pad out a bit since they are brand new and I've never had leather gloves before, but I don't expect much since these are supposed to be warm gloves and more insulation means less finger freedom. I love them and I'm pretty sure they'll be better than my Dakine gloves.

I have a number of different gloves I use... I have Dakine Bronco GT's for early and late season use, some Celtek mittens, Burton Pinnacle Unders etc.

I bought these Swany's last year and they are the best I own[X-CELL II GLOVE (SX-43) - Swany Gloves

how are celteks? i'm tempted to get some -- they look and feel nice but they don't seem very durable or waterproof. i'm using leather burtons right now -- i like the durability and flexibilty of leather. plus if i ever get buried by an avalanche i can eat them.
