For smaller children who sometimes struggle to get their mittens on and off these warm and snuggly, high performance mittens from Didriksons 100% Nylon Oxford Weave are the answer. They have a reinforced 2 layer coating on the outside making them waterproof and windproof, plus a reflective strip and glove security string. There is a warm knitted inner fabric to provide a very high level (12) insulation factor. An excellent performance pair of mitts! Seen here in Poppy red, also in Blue, Fuchsia and Black.
Pip says: One way to prevent accidents is to use a safety line for children on board boats, keeping them attached and preventing them from falling overboard. The line should be the right length so that they stay out of the water even if they do fall.
