The Best Snowsuits for Toddlers & Kids

2 SHARES

Finding the right gear is an important part of surviving the winter season with a smile on your face. While we can’t help with lost mittens, itchy hats or “ugly” scarves, we can help you find the right tops, bottoms and one or two-piece snowsuits to fit a range of budgets and activities.

For any piece, the number one rule is to make sure it’s waterproof or at least water resistant. Ski-type jackets with hoods and removable fleece liners will give you the most bang for your buck. As for snow pants, older kids often don’t like the bib or overalls-style because they look “too baby”, so you might have to expand your search to ski pants, even if your kid has no intention of hitting the slopes.

Ultimately it’s what your little one likes to do outside and how much time they spend there that will determine your needs. Choose wisely though, because hell hath no fury like a cold, wet toddler.
