tomPietrowskiI quite like the dakine mittens. I had some fillmores in the past and this season had some with a zip in the side of the hand which I forgot the name of. They work pretty well for a cheaper glove and you will for sure get a decent life out of them. Certainly not the highest quality but I do think they are much better then mittens and gloves just a bit cheaper. If your looking to spend not too much I think dakine are your best bet.
