We've been braving the snow this week and doing it in style with our Swany Gloves and Mittens all in the name of bringing you products you can count on. This was a perfect winner assignment--a few days of sledding, snow angels and snow balls.
For the tots, we love the the EZ Zip ($18). We had this pair on two ski trips last year and they never came off. With velcro and hidden zipper that have a nice snug fit. Check them out in the featured action sledding shot with Mr. Momtrends steering the sled.
The extra-long duffer ($20) is ideal for bigger kids. We gave these to our 5 year old. No snow made its way to her warm wrist. The microfiber palm has a "DuraGri" so she could grab onto her sled, skis or other winter equipment. The only tricky part? These have to be pulled on with help and before the snow suit or coat goes on.
Since I have fairly small hands, I was able to test the X-CHANGE JR GLOVE ($50). I ran up and down the sledding hill and even took these out for an afternoon of skiing. I loved the reinforced palm with Duragrip--it allowed me to grab my ski poles and feel connected--something I never get from mittens (though I freely admit mittens are warmer). On cold days, I will slip a warmer into the heat pocket--I'll be ready for a long day on the mountain.
Momtrends was not paid for this review. We did get mittens and gloves to test.
