There are two cuff styles to choose from. Over the cuff, or gauntlet, kids ski gloves are designed to go over the top of the cuffs of the ski jacket. The over the cuff gloves generally have longer cuffs and cinch draw strings on them to keep the snow from getting in the top. Under the cuff style gloves are designed to go under the cuff of a ski jacket. The under the cuff style gloves are shorter in the cuff and are generally a bit lower profile so they can tuck inside the cuffs of the coat.
The top brands make kids skiing gloves and mittens in leather and a variety of synthetic fabrics. By using the refinement in the left hand navigation menu you can choose to narrow the selection of kids ski gloves to a particular outer material if you have a preference.
Waterproof kids ski gloves are highly important since kids tend to spend more time playing in the snow where their gloves could get wet. Wet gloves are a recipe for being cold on the slopes. Breathable fabrics allow moisture vapor to escape if the inside of the gloves get wet or sweaty. If moisture vapor cannot escape, the gloves can get wet from the inside out, resulting in chilly hands and fingers.
