Take your kid skiing one day with cheapo gloves, and hear an earful about it right from the start. Dakine made the Kids' Tracker Jr. Gloves so he could hang on the mountain as long as you without frozen hands and a sore throat from yelling.The DK Dry waterproof insert will keep their hands dry, and the 280g of high-loft synthetic insulation offers a ton of warmth, even on cold days. There's a polyurethane palm, for plenty of grip on everything from ski-poles to rope tows. Plus, the gauntlet cuff works just as well pulled over the cuff of their jacket as it does tucked in. Save their fingers, and your patience.
