Kids Winter Gloves, Are They Important?

A snow loving child, do you happen to be the parent or caregiver? It could be anywhere from skiing to building a snowman, as long as your little one is outside he or she is happy. Part of keeping that happiness is to keep them warm. Heat loss from the body starts with the extremities. So it is most important to protect and keep what heat is already there. It starts with the proper glove or mitten choice. We have reviewed five and wanted to share. We selected them from highest to lowest price range depending on your budget.

1. Hestra Army Leather Heli Jr 3-Finger

This kids winter glove certainly earns its name of Army, as it is almost indestructible! In all areas of design, this glove is an all-around win from warmth, dexterity, and dryness. The three finger design really allows being warm and with great dexterity. The palms of the glove are extremely durable armed with Army Leather Goat Leather - this is an awesome feature but since the material is real leather it will need to be recoated here and there with waterproofing a few times to ensure dryness. The outside top part of the glove is made with Hestra’s Triton three-layer polyamide fabric, making it breathable, waterproof and windproof.

The optimal climate for this glove would be a dryer one such as Montana, Colorado, and Utah, as the waterproofing would need to be resorted a lot more in more wet-snow. Keeping this youth winter glove dry allows for the interior of these gloves to shine. Packing a punch of warmth, they have a removable Bemberg/ polyester lining, the interior of the glove is stuff with fiberfill insulation virtually providing two layers of supreme warmth. Price point comes in at $100 which is well worth the money for the longevity one would get from the material. Check out these other Hestra kids winter gloves.
