These Mittens are fantastic! They've kept my fingers warmer than any gloves I've ever worn! Without the liners!
My only compliant would be that the liners didn't fit in the mittens while I was wearing them, but I have wide hands. The liners have a great grip on the palm side, and are good gloves for the t-shirt and hoodie warm weather days.

Does run small, otherwise great
I've had two pairs of these already and they work great. They do tend to run small, so if you wear a small glove, go for medium. The mitt itself does keep your digits pretty warm even without the glove inside. You'll only have to worry about getting wet if you have the vents open and if you tend to handle the snow often. The mitt fits pretty nice, but with the insert it might be a little snug for some.
I've had mine for two seasons already and haven't had any real issues with them as far as quality. However, my digits do get a little moisture from time to time. But that's probably just normal wear and tear. A good coating of waterproofing should bring them back to new again.
Overall... I see them as a 3/1 system mitt/glove combo. You can wear the mitts by themselves and stay warm. Wear them with the glove insert for the extra cold days or just wear the glove insert by themselves for spring time riding. For all that, I think they're worth the investment.
Oh yeah, I also like how it's a mitt and not a mitt with a built in glove. With your digits moving freely and touching each other, its easier to get and keep them warm.
Not as good as years before
I loved my old Burton mittens. I am female and like the roominess of men's mittens. I have medium hands for a female and tried a men's small and medium. In both cases, the thumb is too tight, even for my girly fingers. And forget it with the liners. The liners make it hard to take the gloves on and off. Compared to my old gloves, the cuff/gauntlet is not as long, and that was the deal breaker. In general, however, they are well made and seem warm.
I didn't find it runs that small - I wear Med gloves and the Med for this one fits well. If anything the cuff area is a little shorter than I'm used to but not a big deal.
Super warm, even w/o the liner gloves. Highly recommend!
I've noticed a bunch of different sizing...
I've noticed a bunch of different sizing charts for Burton mittens. Some place me at a small. Others at a medium. I've also seen men's and women's charts that have no difference. Any suggestions?
Sure. Burton gloves are easy enough to find. Go check out a local store and try on the burton gloves and see what size you are and then buy them here. Or buy both sizes and expect to ship one back.
Otherwise, this is a mitten and you can have a slightly tighter fit and still be good to go. I'd opt for the small if you're on the fence, but probably the medium if you were buying gloves.
but i knew that already because i've tried on other burton mitts for this season in the local sporting goods store. they just didn't have this model. all my other gloves i have are medium. the part of the mitt that's supposed to go over your jacket cuff is a lot shorter than my older one (same model from many seasons back) barely covers it and will slide right off with movement.
works well for snowboarding, u can leash them to your wrists, take off the mitt and still have gloves to work with. especially convenient when you're in extremely cold areas and don't want to touch anything with your bare hands.
Runs small and lining defeats the purpose of a mitten
I am returning these. I didn't even make it to the mountain with them, but I ordered a mens small (and I wear a womans small) and they were too snug, with the lining. The lining is also a glove, defeating the purpose of the mitten - your fingers touching provide more warmth. I also thought they were very bulky. If you are looking for just a mitten (not use the lining) I would say they are good, but otherwise find something else.
I use a size medium in virtually all brands of gloves but these are too tight with the thermex glove liners inserted.

does this mit have an elastic strap that attaches to your wrist...great for making sure I dont drop a gloveoff the lift
Yes, each glove has an 8" elastic wrist strap with an adjuster.
These gloves are awesome, haven't needed to use the glove liners yet; they're plenty warm without them. Also really like the zipper that allows you to put a hand warmer into the glove, I haven't used that feature yet either though, because the coldest weather I've boarded in has been about 10 degrees. When the weather is above 30, I need to take the gloves off when I'm on the lift because they're too warm! Can't go wrong with these.
AK Mitten liner.
Great pair of mittens. Liners fit well and still allowed for great dexterity. I wore just the mittens around the base of the mountain and they were really warm, my hand was starting to sweat alittle. These mittens also dry really well over night, they were not moist at all any of the mornings after boarding all day the previous day.
I had a pair of Burton mitts size med I ordered a pair of large's thinking they would be one size bigger. NOT. They where the same if not smaller. And the liners have really big seams in the inside that are not nice.
These mittens are ridiculously warm. Only downside is the liners are a little uncomfortable. I don't need to wear them, though. The mittens themselves are plenty warm.
do any of the burton mittens have the...
do any of the burton mittens have the finger dividers in them this year?
Not, finger "dividers" but a separate glove liner. See the picture I attached.
