This winter for work, I've been rocking a pair of cheap convertible wool mittens with a smartwool liner glove on underneath them- and I absolutely love them. My fancy OR mountaineering mittens haven't even gotten a single use yet this winter- and I'm outside for 8+ hours a day, 5-6 days a week in the Adirondacks. This RefrigiWear conertible mitt is pretty similar to what I've been using, although mine don't have the sewn on pad.

Granted, I need to be able to have fine dexterity in all conditions for my job- to be able to take notes, use a DBH tape, mark trees with paint, etc., so my needs for work are perhaps a bit different than for hiking. Still, I'm loving the combined warmth and flexibility of convertible mitts, and I'm not at all disappointed despite how cheap they were.
