Gloves or mittens?

Happy Fingers

Are you a glove or a mitten person? Mittens generally have a glove liner on the inside, and a warmer, waterproof shell. This design allows the wearer to spend more time with hands in the snow without getting too cold, but also the ability to take their glove lined hands out of the mitten for greater dexterity to reach into pockets, for example, without being exposed to the elements.

Snowboard gloves, however, allow the wearer great movement and finger dexterity without having to remove any part of the shell. Snowboard gloves also usually have a glove liner, yet the wearer can strap onto the board, get something from a pocket, etc., with greater ease.
