Mittens are definitly warmer.   I still like to wear gloves on the days that aren't too cold.

Ive found grenade gloves poor quality. im not a fan of mitts but if i were to get some i'd get a top of the range pair for when its really cold out and another pair of lighter gloves and some liners for when it gets towards spring.

I rock mits and have never had chilly fingers (even in canada). I've got a pair with a liner so it is super easy to adjust for the spring. Gloves look dope though...

This post comes up all the time.  I wish Sierra search didn't suck.

Trigger mitts.  I've always been fine with regular gloves in Tahoe, but Minnesota cold is unlike anything I ever experienced out in the coast... so I'm thinking of getting some heavier duty mittens.
ROLL ON, BISHES.

the best are mittens which have a zip, from where you can take out your hand without removing the whole mittens!

I'm a mittens man. Got a pair of Trespass mittens with the inner glove, so all fingers are seperate, really warm and hands are not restricted at all.

I've always read that mittens are warmer and good especially for people who have cold hand problems. Also less seams probably makes them less likely to leak..

I have the mittens that feel like gloves inside, so after a while I forget I'm wearing mittens. As for temp, i didnt notice a big difference.

Some mittens are single chambers.  Others have partitions between fingers, so you might have a little more dexterity and feel.

You can fit handwarmers inside mittens easier, and ball your fists up too when its super cold.

Mittens are warmer for me.
Got the Dakine Goretex mitts to help my hands stay dry. My hands tend to sweat a lot.

I have mittens with glove-like interior. My hands get too warm but just taking them out of the mittens is a pretty easy solution.

I like the segregation inside the mitten since I tend to get snow inside so then I just have a few wet fingers. I suppose it also helps absorb sweat. I think all mittens are separated though.

I've ripped up my gloves in the past, I think mittens tend to be more durable. Just a personal experience.

The main thing for either one you end up getting is make sure the sleeve of the mitten is long enough to either go over or under your jacket to stay warm and dry.

Never tried mittens. I stick to gloves as I can control music and other stuff easier. If it gets really cold, I might give them a try.
