The Best Snowsuits for Toddlers & Kids

Snowsuits for Kids

Hell hath no fury like a cold, wet toddler, which is why we’ve compiled our annual list of the best winter gear for kids.

If you don’t know where to start when shopping, think about what your little one likes to do outside because that will help you determine your needs. Is she a fort-building, stay out till the streetlights come on winter warrior? Or do you just need to keep him warm on the walk to school?

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.

MEC Toaster Suit

What we like: A classic one-piece that helps kids stay warm even in the coldest temps and wettest conditions. Features include durable waterproof fabric, a safe, toggle-free hood design that seals in heat, reinforced knees and bums, fold-over non-chafe chin guard, elastic cuffs that keep warm in and cold out, reflective piping and a grow hem so you can add extra length to accommodate growth spurts.
