The search for the perfect glove system is never-ending, because everybody's hands are different and there are so many models. Marmot in particular makes a LOT of gloves, and I've tried a lot of them on Pro Deals over the years. All marmot shell gloves are great because of the 1-hand cuff-cinch system and built-in keeper straps, quality, and materials. These are my current favorite model. They're really good when you need 5-finger dexterity and warmth without stiffness. I prefer these for almost everything winter: Shoveling snow, making snowballs, climbing technical ice, everything.
