Clothing for kids

You have to wrap the kids well, but not in excess, because it can be counterproductive. In the snow, children do not stop play and sometimes end up sweating. Sweat sticks them to the body and when they slow down a bit its activity, is them in skin a sensation of cold and humidity that may favor the appearance of symptoms of the freeze.

Here are tips to keep in mind when choosing snow clothing for our children:

  • Cotton underwear which promotes perspiration. Choose a light shirt with long sleeves. Socks, wool better (just a couple).
  • Sweaters of wool and polyester. The high collar protects the throat. Thick pure wool sweaters are uncomfortable and make them sweat.
  • Padded and waterproof trousers. Better adjusted to the ankle or the edge tucked into the boot, so that no water.
  • Waterproof coat. The ideal is the anorak. Some incorporate in their internal tissue layers (such as Thinsulate or Gore-Tex) to preserve moisture well and are considered perfect for snow.
  • Also waterproof mittens. They are more comfortable than gloves because fingers are together and having fewer seams, it is more difficult for moisture to leak. To avoid losing those some coats carry, through the sleeves, long, thin strips engaging mittens.
  • Fleece caps, which cover the neck and ears. Also worth a hangman, but it will harbor considerably less.
  • Do not wear scarves because as soon as they fall to the ground wet. If the small sleigh rides, can entangle and cause choking.
  • To choose the footwear must be taken into account, in the snow children will be easily cold feet. To avoid this we must protect good legs and feet:
    • Gumboots are not effective because cold immediately passes through the plastic sole.
    • Another type of boot more strong, thick-soled, not to stall and, if possible, with inner liner and medium or high leg is necessary.
