SlushI used to be like "Umg I h8 gloves so cold and they look like shit". I thought I was a mittens kinda guy. I was so close to getting a pair for Christmas without actually ever wearing mittens before.
The moment I tried on a pair (just for kicks) at the store, I HATED mittens.
Being able to touch your fingers may be reaaaally weird for you (it was for me) so try out mittens if you are going to buy.
IMO they still look better, I just bought warmer gloves (Dakine makes damn good gloves)
They make mittens that have individual finger holes in them that way your fingers don't touch.
Crotch vents keep em cool.
