As dad of two-year-old Tess, Ellis Brigham’s clothing Buyer Dave Whitlow knows a thing or two about keeping keep little ones warm and comfy on the slopes. Check out his top 5 picks for this season.
|Columbia’s Buga Set £79.99
These good value two piece sets include salopettes with a warm fleece bib and a ‘grow cuff’ to help you get more than one season out of them. They also feature a snowproof, breathable jacket with adjustable hood and two pockets. The good quality fabric allows plenty of movement unlike some budget ski wear that can restrict little ones so they end up looking like stranded starfish.
|Barts Kids Mitt £12.99
Mitts work well as they allow children to screw their fingers up which keeps the circulation flowing meaning they’re less likely to get cold – they also help make a mean snowball. These are available in four colours and have a don’t-lose-em cord.
|Sorel Super Trooper Snow Boots £49.99
Not only do these boots keep toes warm, they grip well on slippery surfaces too. The drawstring cord at the top prevents snow falling in. They can be put to equally good use stomping through mud at home and far comfier than a welly boot.
|Barts Mask Beanie £19.99
Children should always wear helmets on the slopes, but it’s important to keep their heads warm the rest of the time too. Any parent knows that it can be hard to make them keep a hat on so make it fun with something like this lone ranger style beanie, or an Inca style which can be tied to keep chins warm too.
|Dragon Lil D Pow Goggles £45
Young eyes need protecting against the damage caused by UV light and these not only reduce glare but block out 100 per cent of UV rays. The double layer construction helps to prevent fogging too.
