I am really happy with the fit of these gloves. My hands measure 7,3/4 inch measured around at the widest part (across knuckles) and 7,1/2 inch from top of middle finger to crease in my wrist and the size S fits me perfectly. It is a snug fit but there is no pulling between the thumb and index finger which is where gloves are usually too small for me. I always by Large size gloves so I was a bit worried when ordering a Small. So very happy the size guide is correct. I bought these to wear as liners under my Swany X-Cell II mittens. Can't vouch for their warmth yet as I haven't tried them out but they are well constructed and quite thick so I'm hoping they will do the job!

The main reason I'm not recommending these gloves is because the picture is misleading - there is no removable cord to prevent the gloves from getting lost. So you're not actually getting exactly what you think you are (well in my case anyway). The cord was one of the good selling points for me so it's a bit annoying that it's not a feature. If you don't mind getting a different glove than is advertised then the plus sides of the gloves are, they're easy to get on and off and I think the grippy palms will be very grippy. The zipper doesn't open up completely, it has a pleat but still makes it easier to get little hands in. We haven't tried them in the snow yet but they actually feel pretty thin to me so I will be surprised if his hands stay warm but I haven't tested yet - just feel thin to me. I think dexterity wise they would be good though. My son is 4 and a half and I got the size L which is a perfect fit for him with a little room to grow. I think he will probably need to wear inner gloves underneath. They are cute though, just wish they had the idiot strap. They do have a clip to clip them together when they're not being worn.

I just received this today and I agree it's super soft and think it will make a perfect base layer. I think it runs true to size. I ordered a Small and it is snug fitting like in the picture (which is what I expected). I am 5,4', 54kg, 33' bust, 28' waist and it's a perfect fit. Snug fitting but doesn't pull under the arms, which I hate as I am a little broad across the shoulders. Great top and the stitching is flattering. Definitely recommend.

Great Goggles

I have nothing bad to say about these goggles. They fit perfectly, never fogged, totally comfortable, great visibility and they look good too! I got the sensor mirror lens and these were perfect for most days except for the really sunny blue bird days where a darker lens would have been more appropriate. Definitely recommend.

These pants feel like decent quality and I liked the vents in the inseam and the length was perfect on me and I liked the flared bottoms but the fit around the waist was too big and tight around the thighs. If I went down a size it would no longer fit me around the legs for sure. They are also too low cut. I would have ended up with snow down my back for sure. I felt like I was trying to hike them up the whole time. They are also really bulgy in the front too and when tightened with the velcro sides it made it even more bulgy. I didn't think they were flattering at all. I got a size S. I'm 5'4, 53kg, 163cm tall. My waist is 70cm and the S was still way too big around the waist on me. These are going back.
