- Q & A
Don't buy them
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The concept is sound... just poor execution. I'm a firm believer in Lobster Mits... best of both worlds: warmth and dexterity. But would not suggest anyone buy these. I bought 4 for all my kids? returned all 4.
1. They are NOT actual lobster mits. The product description fails to mention that inside the "mit" the fingers are separated! which of course means you have none of the benefits of the additional warmth of having the fingers together and on top of that you have none of the dexterity of a glove.
2. God forbid you try to wash these you run a 50/50 chance of having the insides get so tangled your kiddies will NEVER ever get their hands in again.
3. The liners are NOT removable.
4. They really are NOT that warm? per all of my kids.
Sadly good kid gloves are like a unicorns? impossible to find. No one wants to spend $100+ on a kids glove like we do on adult gloves so no one makes them. Yet we are all faced with the same issue: keeping our kids hands warm so their day, and ours, is not ruined. I?m trying the more upper-end Hestra Junior Heli Mits this winter? They appear to be much better made and warmer at first pass. Plus the liners are removable... we'll see...
Another season and my kids will fin in XS Marmot or Black Diamond Guide/Lobsters... and then the search for the Unicorn will be over... Yes, they will run $150 a pair but honestly - ya spend $10k on a week in Deer Valley or Vail... don't cheap out on your kids warmth over the cost of a couple cocktails
Can't go wrong!
We went to Ottawa, Canada to visit family and ski the slopes. We definitely weren't prepared for the 8 degree high when it came down to gloves. My kids were going through glove warmers like crazy. Soon after returning we bought these gloves for the kids and let's just say I've been named the world's best dad by my oldest daughter. These gloves are great for warmth and grip!!
Opted for the Heli mitt
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
We ordered both these and the Hestra children's Heli mitt for my 9-year old. Based on my own experience with the Hestra Heli, and comparing the quality between the two, we sent these back, and went with the Heli mitt.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
My 10 year old used these for hard-core snowboard riding on a cold day and his hands got very cold and had to use hand-warmer packs with them. He's back to his Hestra Heli Ski ones which he loves and work very well. Czone Gauntlets have a great color and design and are probably OK for easy snow-play but inappropriate for a cold day deep in the mountain.
