I bought a pair for my 5-yr-old. Aside from the fact that climbing shoes this small are adorable, these shoes work as they should. My son wore them to the gym, and he wore me out. (I figured he'd last for 15 minutes, but he spent more than an hour at the kids' bouldering wall.) He likes how they look, and they fit well. They're easy to get on and off, and the hook-n-loop closure lets him adjust the fit. The lace that goes around the back is attached to the closure, so the whole shoe fits snugly. I bought a bit large, as other reviewers suggest, and they fit now yet have room to grow.

I bought these for my son. He's 5. The 6T fit him a bit large, as I expected, but it's not a problem, and they'll fit him next year. The zipper is three-quarters the length of the mitten, so they're easy to get on and off; plus, at the end of the day, I can get them to dry faster by opening the zipper. The gauntlet fits over or under a jacket. My son has worn them both skiing and snowboarding on the bunny slopes and while playing in the snow, and he hasn't complained of cold hands. He loves the blue color.

I bought the smallest version of this board for my son when he was not quite 3 years old. The smallest sizes have grippy pads that your kid can stand on without bindings. The tow rope (not included) attaches on the end, and then you can pull your kid around. My son's 4 now, and he fits in Burton's smallest boots and bindings. He can ride a very low-angle hill now (with help, of course).

The short answer is yes. The long answer: these goggles feature what Smith calls a thermal lens. A thermal lens is actually two lenses, one outer and one inner, with dead air space in between them. That dead air creates a thermal barrier that keeps the inner lens warm and dry. (This is pretty much standard on goggles nowadays, BTW.) There isn't any additional tech to ensure fog-free that I'm aware of, but my son has these goggles, and so far, he has been fog-free.

For specific information, hit the size? link under the Select Options drop-down located to the right of the product image. But quickly, here’s the lowdown on available lens options:

* Persimmon Boost: great for storms and low-light conditions
* Black Limo 15: for very bright conditions
* Amber Gold 24: for bright conditions
* Rose Silver 30: medium-light conditions
* Amber 26: bright conditions
* Amber Scarlet 40: for variable light conditions

Bought for my husband for xmas. So far he has worn them this winter to shovel, clean snow off our vehicles, finish building a tool shed, and do other active projects in frigid weather (these gloves won't keep your hands warm in deep winter if you're just standing around). They'll also make great ski/ride gloves in not-too-stormy spring conditions.

Bought for my husband for xmas. He had the older version of these, and they eventually got rips where he gripped his snowboard edge when hiking. The gauntlet on the newer ones is shorter, but they still seem to give enough coverage. They keep his hands warm and dry, as you'd expect from Gore-Tex products.

Bought for my husband ... who used it once while snowboarding and a few times while working outside. He was rather bummed that it didn't keep his coffee hot for the promised 6 hours (or even half that). And the goat logo is already wearing off, which makes me sad. On the plus side, it works fine for commuting, and it hasn't leaked, even when upside-down in my bag. And I like how it looks.
