Summer may have just begun, but the winter will be here before we know it and you want to make sure your kids are safe and warm. As we all know too well, kids outgrow their clothing quickly, so we want to make sure that you get the best value for your money. After lots of testing, we’ve rounded up our favourite winter gear items for your little ones. They may not all be cheap, but they are all built to last and guaranteed to keep your kids warm and toasty!
Base Layer: When it comes to gearing your kids up for winter, it’s crucial to begin with a good base layer. Micro fleece kids base layers by Terramar are not only soft, comfy and breathable, but they are a real steal at only $20 per piece!
Snowsuits, Coats & Jackets: Canada Goose Junior may be pricey, but nothing will keep your little one warmer. Moreover, the Gosling Graduate System – allowing the sleeves to extend 1 ½” and the legs to extend by 2″ – ensures that your purchase will grow with your child from one winter to another. Grizzly snowsuit: $495.00, The Lynx Parka: $450.00, Grizzly Bomber: $395.00, Bobcat Hoody: $295.00, Thunder Pants: $295.00.
