During the recent extreme winter weather we had, I found none of my gloves were adequate for keeping my hands warm on the long walk from the parking lot into work. I have Renaud's Syndrome, which means when my finger tips get cold, they really hurt and it takes a long time for them to warm up.
I went to my usual sources, LL Bean and REI to purchase a good set of winter mittens. Neither had a good inventory left and nothing that I wanted. So I did a search of "women's winter mittens."
"Moosejaw?" I asked as my eyes went down the screen. I had never heard of them and tend to be cautious about ordering online from a company I have never heard of.
Their website is comical, most likely written and designed by a bunch of 20-somethings. But they did have what I wanted and I was desperate. So I placed the order and took the standard shipping at no charge.
The gloves arrived by FedEx this morning, less than a week from when I placed the order. I"m impressed.
Moosejaw packaging is as comical as the website. There is a big label on the outside saying, "Sealed with a Kiss" and someone signed their initials. And there was a little surprise inside the package.
I don't know how long this company has been around, but they do have good marketing skills!
How about you? Has anyone else ordered from them before?
