Good mitts
This glove mitt combo is an good system for warmer (32 degrees F to 0 degrees F) winter conditions where grip and dexterity is important.

I have used this glove to go cross country skiing and they are awesome. The liner alone has kept me warm down to about 5 degrees F while active, it blocks wind well, and has not wet out during heavy wet snowfall. It also has great dexterity and grip!

I have also used these gloves to do some spring climbing. Again, they are the perfect combination of wind resistence, warmth, dexterity, and breathability for those balmy winter days. They also grip ice axes great!

Then when it gets colder, just put on the mitts.

I like these gloves/mitts a lot!
