I have 2 pairs of the gore gloves by burton, and wanted a pair of mittens. My husband oreder these for me, they are perfect. They are great for those cold days. With the extra (optional) liner my finger are never cold. I am out on the hill teaching everyday, so it is super important my hands do not get cold. Even if you hands get a bit sweaty and you put your gloves back on after a break give them 5 min. and they are super toasty again!!!! The liners are great in the spring as well!
