We know, we don’t necessarily want to think about the cold weather either, but it is more enjoyable when everyone has the right gear – and that means starting early to avoid having to go to six different stores to find snow pants. Different pieces of winter gear for kids work for different ages… Unfortunately you can’t outfit them in snowsuits up until their teen years (although we wish we could).
Here are some of the pieces of winter gear for kids that have performed for us over the years and look good doing it…
Best Winter Gear for Kids
Roxy Toddler Girls Snowy Tale Insulated Jacket
They’ll be warm, dry and full of smiles in the snow in this durable jacket. Plus, an adjustable growth system allows for two seasons of wear.

Kombi Bear Paw Mitt
We always, always make sure that every member of the family has a pair of Kombi mitts every winter – they’re that warm and keep the soggy snow out.

Helly Hansen No Limits 2.0 Pants
Helly Hansen knows their stuff. So when it comes time to invest in snow pants, we’re fine to splurge a bit because they last and get passed down to lots of others.

Carter’s Packable Puffer Jacket
They’re so warm, soft and squishy, why wouldn’t you wear a puffer? This one even packs into its own carrying bag.

Ultralight 650 Down Jacket, Colorblock
Here are the puffers for the slightly older kids from L.L. Bean, with an impressive history of excellent quality clothes. We love the retro stripes of colour in these offerings.

Roxy Alabama Fleece
A fleece is a great transitional layer and works like a charm under a shell. It’s also perfect for those slightly milder days and climates (Vancouver, we’re looking at you). This jacket has a pattern she’ll fall for.

Quiksilver Estate Insulated Snow Pants
These boarding pants are totally rad, and work for all snowy weather pursuits. Good thing they come in different colours, because every kiddo is going to want one.

Carter’s Heavyweight Parka With Detachable Hood
We live in Canada, so during most winters a parka is inevitable to make it through those blizzards and -30 days. This one looks fab, performs well, and will please everyone’s fashion taste.

Carhartt Watch Beanie
Bless you, Carhartt, for making warm hats cool again. We’re over the moon that they want to wear beanies pretty much every day. No more frozen ears!

L.L. Bean Hi-Pile Fleece Bunting
Dress them this way while you still can! So warm, so cozy, so CUTE! Take lots of photos and enjoy the winter ensemble.
