These gloves will be used for skiing in the Utah mtns. The price is excellent. About sizing: The M (for 8-9 year olds) was way too big; the S (for 6-7 year olds) fits better. Lucy's hand is 5 1/2" around, her longest finger (middle) is 2 1/2" long. The gloves are long in the fingers but workabl...

I bought these for our oldest (9 years) for our ski trip last year. While they seemed to do the job during that trip, it was unseasonably warm, and I don't think he actually used them much. Flash forward to this year: We just returned from a trip to Romania, where it was quite cold. These gloves were horrible. They seemed to get wet very quickly and were impossible to dry. Further complicating matters, when my son would remove his hands, the finger liners would come out of the shell, making it even harder to dry or even put back on. I spent a lot of time trying to get the liners right side out, and in the correct finger. At my wits end, I actually CUT the liner from one glove so that he could get it on his hand. Now I am back at STP looking for mittens before our next trip. For my money, if you are shopping for kids, go with mittens. Easy on, easy off, and easy to dry. We have the Jacob Ash mittens and love those. They've lasted 3 seasons.

I bought these for my 6 year old son for skiing and general snow play. They are easy for him to get on and off and the palm surface is great for gripping and seems sturdier than most. The stripe is a great place to write his name, so we're more likely to find them again than the last several pairs of black gloves/mittens that we've lost. They are warm enough for most days, but not quite warm enough for single digit ski days.

My girls wore them out in the snow the day they received them. They kept their hands warm and dry for a reasonable length of time. I have tried many different brands and price ranges and have yet to find a kid's glove that is truly waterproof for all day wear. I am happy with the quality and the price paid. I only wish I had ordered a size up, they fit perfectly now with no room to grow. I followed the size chart but was hoping they could wear them for a while next winter. Still, I am happy with the purchase.
To measure your hand size correctly, measure the widest part of your hand (excluding your thumb), generally around the knuckles.|Visit our sizing charts here for information on how to measure and what sizes will fit you best:|http://www.sierratradingpost.com/lp2/SizeChart.html

The small is a bit large on my 5yo, the medium fits my 8yo, and the large fits my 11yo, all girls (and the 5yo's hands are small for her age). Hope that helps!

The sizing for the kids was spot on with just alittle room for growth, but having an adjustable wrist band helped.
