Gloves for kids---Great.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Wife just purchased a new pr of finger gloves for my 2.5 yo son.

"Bear Claws" They are basically mittens with tiny stubs at the end of each finger tip----about 1/2 inch each. The fingers find their own home and he can use them to manipulate things like gloves, but I am guessing he will get the warth and functionality of mittens.

Leather on the palms and fingers make them look cool too.

I could use a pair of those too. I hate gloves because my fingers get cold. I use mittens all the time. Having the finger tips usable might be just the trick. Maybe a manufacturer will see this and get the hint.

They do take special orders for adult sizes! Here's the link:

I really like the L-Bow mittens/gloves like --

One of the mitten models has a symmetric thumb so there's no right or left to deal with. The nylon gaiter goes way up the forearm to there snow/wind leaks and the don't fall off easily. For bigger kids, you can get them as gloves also.

There are/were gloves made for adults that were known as lobster claw, basically mittens with just the index fingers and thumbs separated. Reusch used to make them.

I've been looking for something like that for my sons for a while! I've been truly frustrated trying to put the mittens back on their wet hands. Thanks!!!

THis is what I love about this site.....I really like the Gater factor, will get a pr for the boy and my daughter.....

For a close up of what they look like----see this video

My son Lange is 30 mos old..... Close up of the gloves at 1:30 and 2:36...

Note how he can pick up and eat dirty snow at will. As stated earlier, he can put these gloves on himself and they fit both ways...pinky is the thumb.
