Oh, Winter. I did not know what winter was until I moved from Vancouver to Montreal. And since arriving here in Quebec, this winter has been the absolute worst in terms of cold and snow fall. Of course, this is also the first winter where Cub is actively playing outside. Getting him dressed to go outside is the bane to both of our existences. Our one-piece snowsuit helps the process somewhat, and now he can put his boots on more or less by himself. But mitts: oh, the mitts.
Never having wrangled a toddler into winter gear full time, the mitts I chose at the end-of-the-season sale last year were long and had a Velcro-closure around the cuffs. They aren’t very wide, so it’s impossible to tightly secure them on top of the arms of his snowsuit. They come detached easily. It’s really hard, at -30 C, to take my own hands out of my mitts to try and cram Cub’s hands back into his. The cuffs of his snowsuit are too narrow to feed the mittens through the sleeve, so that was never an option.
We loved our Stonz Booties last winter, so I never doubted for an instant that we wouldn’t love Stonz Mittz.
The super wide cuffs slide easily over his coat sleeves, and the toggle closures at the wrist and elbow can be tightened with one hand. Outside playing in the snow, his mitts don’t fall off, and his hands stay toasty warm and dry. Snow doesn’t sneak in, either!The inside of the thumbs are topped with soft fleece for nose wiping, and the palm of the gloves have a slip-resistant fabric that help him keep playing.
