Winter is a magical season for kids, filled with snowball fights, building snowmen, and endless hours of outdoor fun. However, finding the perfect pair of waterproof mittens for toddlers can be a challenge. For many of our parents, they try a few types before finding the mitten or glove that fits their budget and lifestyle.
Nobody wants wet and cold hands to ruin the winter wonderland experience. In this guide, we'll explore some of the top waterproof mitten options available in Canada, ensuring your little ones stay warm and dry during their winter adventures.
A few points of consideration - what weather do you actually want to play in? Does your family actively spend time at -25C playing? If so, then consider investing in mittens and gloves. If not, you may find that lower priced gloves more suitable. Not all these mittens have the same type of waterproof feature either.
The Best Waterproof Mittens for Toddler
Jan & Jul Waterproof Stay On Mittens: Jan & Jul is a Canadian brand offering mittens designed to stay on. This is one of our personal favourites because of the price point, sizing, and overall durability.
Available in sizes ranging from 0 to 8 years, these mittens come in different weights for rainy days and cold snowy days. Features such as wrist and sleeve straps and a wide opening with a smart thumb make them a contender for reliable waterproof mittens. These fly out the door as popular choice for parents in Northern BC, including Prince George.
Villervalla Winter Glove: The Villervalla Winter Glove is a reliable and stylish option for keeping your child's hands warm and dry. We added this glove to our personal collection at the end of the season when everyone else was sold out, and I'm sold.

Stonzwear: One of the most popular choices for Canadian winters, Stonzwear offers premium waterproof mittens that are worth the investment. We've used Stonzwear mittens for years because of their deep cold rating. However their price point can be a little terrifying once your kids start loosing gloves.

The 600D coated nylon shell, insulated with 150mg 3M Thinsulate, ensures maximum warmth. With adjustable toggles and a fleece lining, Stonzwear mittens provide both comfort and functionality.
Kombi Mittens: Kombi is a Canadian brand known for its range of affordable winter wear products. You'll find these at big box stores, and TBH we've heard mixed things. I really love the basics of Kombi mittens, but sometimes they have a hard time staying on.
Their mittens are designed specifically for the Canadian climate, offering durability and water resistance. Made with lightweight polyamide and water-resistant leather, these mittens provide reliable protection. The breathable microfiber and polyester fleece insulation ensure warmth without compromising comfort. Kombi also offers reflective magnetic gloves, suitable for toddlers and older children.
