Bought 2 pair - Trooper Camo for my 3 yo boy and Punkstar Plaid for my 5 yo girl. Both get great marks for appearance. We have used for only two weekends of skiing so far but performance has been good in terms of keeping little hands dry and warm. The handwarmer pocket is well placed for comfort and roomy enough to actually accommodate a hand warmer! The closure is described on website as "hook and loop" but it is more like a flap and velcro on the gauntlet to allow tightening of the gauntlet ...no loop. We have found that the elastic at wrist and long gauntlet work well to keep snow out. The wrist elastic is only thing that creates difficulty getting glove on but it also keeps glove in place...it's a trade off. Can't speak to durability yet, but we have found this to be a good kid glove so far.
