These gloves get 4 stars, but the sizing gets a 1! It's so off, not even close. On the site, size L is described as "5 1/2 YRS", & they fit... ME. Problem is, I ordered them for my young son! We're about to head into some very cold weather, & now I'm going to have to scramble to find some gloves that fit him. (At least I will have some very toasty, nice gloves for myself, an improvement over my old ones...)

Nice looking, super soft inside and comes up fairly high on the wrist. They can also be tightened across the wrist for a snugger fit. The material on the palm side is great for a good grip. I ordered an xs for my 5 yr old son and unfortunately they are at least 2 sizes too big. However, they seem to be such awesome gloves for winter/snow, and since I got them at a such a huge sale price I will keep them another year or two until they fit. I highly recommend for older kids.

I bought these for my 7 and 9 year old. The fit is off. I followed the feed back of other buyers and bought the medium size this spring for use this winter. I think they will be able to use them for a couple of season.

This glove seems nice but the sizing is incorrect. As mentioned in other reviews it is sized very large. I purchased the medium for my 6.5 year old and he is swimming in it. I would guess that the medium is much more appropriate for an 8-9 year old.

I have a large 6 yr old so purchased the xl. Way too big so I ordered the L they seem to be the same size as the XL. I would normal buy him smalls in gloves but I was using the STP size and feel STP has missed the mark with the ages but that the company is probably accurate with their sizing.

These seem like nice gloves, but ignore the sizing. I ordered an XL for my average sized 9 year old figuring they might be a little big based on the comments. He will probably be able to wear them 2 or 3 years from now. I will order a smaller size, but not sure if a M or L would be best for this year!
