|This was fashionable on the slopes 15 years ago - honest!|
So here is my kids wardrobe wishlist:
The matching ski jacket has been made with a lot of thought. It comes with a detachable snow shirt that can be attached to the snow trousers. Once again this is a feature that is very handy if you fall as it stops snow going down the back of your trousers!
You can see by the photo of me skiing that I wear mittens instead of gloves, so I would also chose these zip up mittens for my boys. I have had both ski gloves and mittens and I believe the mittens are a better choice. Firstly they are a lot easier to put on. Ski gloves are really bulky and well padded so they are hard to get on and then it isn't that easy to bend your fingers. I was advised by an instructor that mittens are easier and have never looked back.
I really like these colourful base layers. I like that the striped top is longer at the back, meaning that your little ones back will still be warm and cozy when you bend over. These would also be good in a variety of sports, not just skiing. I would have to pair it with these funky long johns.
On the basis that scarves can get caught on things, unravel and can also be bulky, I really like this neckwarmer as an alternative. It is made from merino wool too so it would be lovely and soft.
The fur trimmed hats are also on my wishlist as if it is really cold the long ear flaps will keep your little ones ears warm.
Last but not least, I had to add this curious clouds t-shirt to my wishlist as I just love the design. Who says that boys clothes have to be plain and boring!
So that is my kids ski wish list. Have I missed anything? What are your must haves to go skiing?
