Dakine Men's Titan GTX Short Glove
Awesome glove, maybe not the trendiest style though
This is a wonderfully versatile glove which can be used from the depths of a January freeze all the way to the spring thaw. The liner gloves are warm and tactile and can be worn by themselves when the weather is warm. The main gloves are very well made and very well insulated. The zip pocket on the back can be used for a hand-warmer or as a vent depending on the temperature.
The only criticisms of the gloves are that although they fitted around my hand my fingers were a good few centimeters from the end meaning they were pretty useless for doing much. Having said that they will keep your hands very warm with all that insulation. The other thing is that they are gauntlet gloves and as such are quite long. If you want an all-season glove then they are perfect but if you want to be down with the kids then a shorter glove will probably suit you better.
All in all this is a great set of gloves (so great I got the ladies version for my wife) and the Gore-Tex lining meant my hands were never sweaty or damp.

warm, comfortable, completely waterproof, awesome
These are the best gloves I have ever had. I walked into a ski shop in the resort and said what do you think about my gloves they replied wow, these are the ones that we wanted to sell this year!!!

you get what you pay for.....
....and in this instance you pay good money, because this glove is fantastic!
I had a fault developed whereby the thumb let in water, but I accept this is something that can happen to any item, and is in the process of being rectified....but...I don't want to detract away from the glove itself.
It kept my hands nice and toasty on the piste and the inserts that come with the glove were perfect when you needed to remove the glove at alititude. The zip on the top pf the glove was a perfect hidy hole for the ski lift pass and meant I did'nt need to dance around like most people in front of me waiting to get through the gates. The breathability of the glove was fantastic too, I never felt any moisture within the glove!
The glove is a little bulky, but I had a size large...this did'nt detract from the movement of the glove though and I was generally capable of undoing most things with the glove on!
there is a strap across the glove that you can pull tight to hold the heat in and a pully cord to stop snow from getting in, that works very well, as well as the cord to attach to your wrist.
I compared these to the north face triclimate glove and these not only look better, but fit better :)

I love the inner/liner glove works well with the touch screen phone and very useful on the slopes - can have a drink without your hands being frozen off.
The main glove is nice and waterproof. Great product.
