The mittens work great to keep fingers warm, but I don't feel as confident with braking/shifting etc. compared to gloves.

The top rated cold weather cycling gloves are all pricey ($100-ish and up) so I really don't want to spend that type of coin unless it really works.

Should I post in the "Cold Weather Cycling" forum??
I've thought about getting some "Lobster" gloves as a medium solution. They break the mitten up so that instead of all four fingers together, its two and two + the thumb. I'm guessing warmer but still klutzy compared to regular gloves.
