Best Mittens Ever
on February 24, 2011
I went to the snowstopper website and found measurements to take for these mittens, so I knew they would fit my 3-year-old's hands. Indeed, they are a perfect, snug fit, which is what I wanted so she can pick things up without a lot of extra mitten getting in the way. I also ordered the next size up, just to be sure, and they were too big (as they're supposed to be) so I'll save them for next year.
We live in a very cold, snowy climate, and my daughter used to be able to stay outside only about 10 minutes because her hands would be freezing. All our other mittens were either too thin or kept coming off or weren't waterproof. The first time we used these mittens, she stayed out for an hour! I finally get to go outside! And they didn't fall off once! They are waterproof, but the material is so soft that she can still use her hands. Most waterproof mittens are stiff and bulky. Plus there's a grippy part on the palm. The 'sock' part that goes up the arm is also soft and cozy.
They are maybe slightly harder to put on than other mittens, but not much. Now that my daughter knows how much she loves them, she's extra willing to cooperate too! I just tell her to hold her thumb out so I can nudge it into the thumb hole. Bottom line is these mittens are amazing! The price is a steal! They will change your outdoor experiece completely from a constant cold struggle into warm, carefree fun. I love them. If you want to measure, here is their size chart:
Mitten measurements from fingertip to wrist are as follows:
Xtra Small 4"
These measuring instructions were exactly right for us. Just as a side note, I found the pink to be less vibrant than it appeared on my monitor, but honestly they could be any color and I'd love them because of now perfectly they work! Still a nice pink color.
