- Q & A
Gave this as a gift
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
I was told these worked great. When I purchased them they seemed like they were well constructed and I got them at a great price.
Huge design flaw - and not waterproof
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
These mittens have individual finger holes for each finger - defeating the mitt's ability to keep hands warm!
I still do not understand mitten makers that sew glove inserts/liners into their mitts - THIS DEFEATS THE PURPOSE OF MITTENS and destroys their ability to keep hands warm.
Also, these are not, simply not waterproof - they are water-resistant only - if your kid's play out in the snow w/ these for an extended period of time, they will come back soaked thru w/ wet hands.
Great mittens for the cold days but...
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
My kids have the Swany Exchange gloves for everyday skiing and the mittens for the extra cold days. They have performed well now for over two years. Only two things fall short in my opinion. First the heater pocket is a bit small. You really have to stuff to get the heater in the Mitt. Also within the mitt the space is divided into separate finger areas, according to my kids...my hand can't fit in there. I think this is for the waterproofing.This makes donning the mitten a bit more difficult than just slipping it on for the little ones...gotta space those fingers out and I suspect it makes them slightly less warm than the same mitt without the separations within. That said my kids have skied these in pretty cold conditions. Our last trip was a single digit excursion, never broke 9 deg, in VT and the kids skied from 8-12 had lunch and then hit it again from 1-4pm. We used warmers and there weren't any complaints.
How would a XL in this mitten compare to a women's small in size?
Are the mittens waterproof?
Yes these are waterproof. The leather naturally is and there is also a breathable hipora insert that adds even more protection. Let me know if you have any more questions, I would love to help you find the perfect glove for your little one.
