Of course, we all want the best for our children, and when it comes to keeping them safe and comfortable in the harsh cold that means choosing a jacket with reliable insulation. One of your best options for keeping the kids warm against the frosty weather is down jackets. Naturally derived down feathers effectively offer unparalleled warmth. Additionally, winter jackets made with down insulation are lightweight and easier to compress and pack away for travel.
One drawback is that wet down doesn’t offer the same kind of protection, so to make sure your little ones are getting the maximum benefit by looking for water-resistant shells for fun in the more wet conditions.
Named after the Rocky Mountains, the Kid’s Rocky Parka is packed with many of the same versatile technical features as our adult parkas. Our Rocky Parka is the ultimate winter tool for keeping the little snowball fighters and winter wonderland explorers warm and protected from the elements.
Technical features include:
Canadian duck down insulation for quality heat preservation.
152 GSM, 70% nylon 30% cotton weave. With this higher nylon content comes better tensile strength and durability.
Coated with Dupon Teflon Shield+ water repellent finish, helping keep the down and your little one dry.
But sometimes our little ones are just too little for a parka. When it comes to winter outerwear for infants and toddlers, snowsuits are invariably your warmest option. Of course, the level of protection, quality, and the price will vary depending on the style, insulating fill, and other technical features. For example, most snowsuits for infants and toddlers have a long zipper, making that oh-so-important diaper change so much easier. Not to mention foldover cuffs, which are great at protecting their little hands and feet.
When it comes to dependable and snug protection for the smallest members of any family, the Arctic Bay Kid’s Snowsuit is always the superior choice. And no, it’s not just because it is so adorable! This design excels at ensuring your tiny tots stay cozy and dry, even in the most frozen conditions.
Technical features include:
Premium Canadian Duck Down 725 fill power
Canadian origin coyote fur ruff
100% Nylon lining
Temperature rating up to -45°C/-49°F
The outer shell is TRUENORTH, made of durable water, wind, and stain-resistant fabric. Again, this kid’s winter clothing is reinforced with 152 GSM, 70% nylon 30% cotton weave tensile strength. Coated with Dupon Teflon Shield+ water repellent finish.
Non-removable hood with removable fur trim
Removable fleece peaked hood liner
Removable snap closured fleece gloves
Hidden snap closured hand warmer welt pockets
Telescopic sleeves with elasticized rib knit cuffs
Elastic leg straps to keep snowsuit from riding up
Centre front YKK locking zipper from chin to ankle for easy on/off
On the other hand, once kids are potty-trained the full-piece snowsuits can become less convenient. When your little one grows out of that diaper, potty breaks require quick action, which isn’t easy when you have to remove a full suit. In this instance, it makes more sense to have separate pants and a coat. Consider all the variables before choosing between a kid’s snowsuit and a kid’s parka.
Typically, the sizes for the Arctic Bay Kid’s Snowsuit range 4T-8T.
Sure, the kids might not be able to run, jump, and frolic with the same agility with snowsuits. Even though it can be harder for kids to toddle around in extra-puffy garments, don’t trade warmth for mobility.
