This is the third pair of Gordini gloves we have purchased. I own mittens with the lava wool (older pair), 2 months ago bought our 4 year old Gortex Gordini mittens, and knew what we wanted for our 8 year old. Our boys love the outdoors and need QUALITY, DURABLE gear. These gloves are awesome. Keep your little ones hands dry and warm. Buy them some Gordini gloves. When you do you will also help Gordini take care of other little hands in their home state of Vermont! What an excellent company! This will be our go to glove company from now on.
