There won’t be a shortage of mittens at the Sochi Olympics.

Canada, whose mittens were a smash hit at the 2010 Vancouver Games, unveiled its 2014 version three weeks ago. The U.S. joined the party this week, launching its set Monday. Sochi organizers followed suit with gloves and mittens Wednesday.

The color scheme would seem to go well with Germany’s Olympic uniforms.

So, which hand warmers are the best choice?

Canada is selling its pair for $10 each.

The U.S. is selling its pair for $14 each.

Sochi 2014 said its gloves will go for 500 rubles each, which equates to about $15.
