I like to use gloves so i can move my fingers independently. I have read the mittens keep your hands warmer though. Then there is a combo glove with a separate triggerfinger and thumb with the rest mitten style.

kinda depends on ur preference. Some people like to freely move their fingers and others dont. Its also easier to use your fingers to tie ur laces or strap ur bindings with gloves. whatever works for u is best.

I voted mittens because it keeps your fingers warmer. Con? Fingers don't move independently.
But that doesn't mean you can't carry hot patches around in case temperatures call for :)

I have used and still use both but definately prefer gloves as it is just easier to strap in having more mobility.

mittins on colder days. keeping your fingers together = more warmth. only thing that sucks is that if you really need to do anything else other than strapping in, you  needa take em off

Mittens are GREAT for cold weather.
I rock "pipe gloves" in spring tho.

But I love mittens. :]

i use both, depending on conditions. i also have mitts that have a waterproof zipper along the index finger that allows you to expose your fingers if you need that extra dexterity.

I normally use gloves because that's what I started with.  In really cold conditions a pair of mittens would really be nice though.  I did use some 4 finger gloves and I loved them.  I good compromise perhaps?

Easier to tighten your bindings with gloves. They get my vote.

I really prefer gloves.  I had a pair of mittens and I just couldn't get used to the lack of dexterity. 

That said, my hands were noticeably warmer in the mittens.  warmer than my goretex gloves with liners.

Mitts for me...it's usually not nice enough to use gloves until the snow is gone.

Finger movement isn't an issue, I can't imagine tying my laces while wearing gloves so you're going to have to remove what you wear either way.  I do wear some glove liners inside my mitt usually so it's not as bad if I take the mitt off.

Depends on the weather. Mittens don't affect my ability to strap in. I only use my thumb and pointer finger.

Mittens.  Mobility is over-rated.

+1 on goretex.  That's where it's at.

I used to use the trigger type gloves which my index finger was independent from the rest. But now, I use gloves. While I enjoy my fingers can be moved freely, my fingers (pinkies) get cold easier. If I have choice, I'd just get the trigger type gloves, so I get the best of both world.

I use mittens all the way with "glove-style" linings. The only reason is because the ability for my fingers to touch seems to keep my hands warmer. I used to wear gloves and thought mittens felt kinda weird but got used to it quickly

It depends on what you need them for.  Gloves are better if you need to use your hand cell phone, bindings, ect...  Mittens keep your hands warmer.

if your a skiier, it's almost like you need gloves, because when you have the poles, you need a bit of dexterity and mittens do not provide you with that. if your a snowboarder, i highly recommend mittens cuz your hands will get cold and mittens help keep your hands warm for longer by a long shot over normal gloves.

the best thing to do is get liners for inside the mittens so you can take em off for tying and stuff but your still warm inside while riding.
