Default What Gloves-or Handlebar Gauntlets?

What is preferred in deep snow? Good gloves or gauntlets?

How thick of gloves are needed?

I prefer to ride with thin water replellent gloves on my sled but hate cold hands. With a dirtbike I prefer light gloves also so I have a wraparound handguard installed and just purchased the Powermad Guantlets from amazon. Primarily because they are made to go around the hand guards and also have a preformed ring to keep the guantlet open for easy hand enter etc. They also have a 1 year no questions asked warranty. I have ridden street bikes in cold weather with a cheaper style of these and it was hard to get hands into guantlets with gloves on as they would hang up so I hope the open hole design helps. Also the streetbike did not have handguards and the wind would push the guantlet against the levers and make then difficult also. On the positive side I ended up not even wearing gloves in 30 deg weather at highway speeds nice and warm.
