Top Concerns for Buying Boys' Snowsuits

In winter, children still love going out and playing in the snow. With a boys' snowsuit you can keep your son warm and allow him to enjoy fresh air to the fullest without worrying about him falling ill as this garment keeps both cold and moisture away. Learn about the types and materials of snowsuits to select the best one for your boy.


Types of Boys' Snowsuits

The two main types of snowsuits are one-piece and two-piece, referring to the garment's design. One-piece suits work well for infants. They should also cover the baby's hands and feet because small babies do not wear boots and mittens. It combines the legs, hood, and jacket into one outfit and typically has a fastening in the front. The feet part could be either open or come with booties. One-piece snowsuits are warmer than two-piece suits that feature a pair of trousers with a bib, similar to overalls, and a separate jacket with a hood. Two-piece suits are easier to get into and out of. If the boy gets too hot, he can remove only the jacket, although children can also take off the jacket and lose it. Two-piece suits are great for active children.


Choosing the Snowsuit Material

The material of a snowsuit determines how windproof and water-resilient it is and is therefore crucial. Water resistant nylon is the most common fabric for snowsuits and it is lightweight, inexpensive, and quick drying. Polyester does not breathe and thus retains warmth inside, being lightweight and water resistant. Fleece is often the inner lining of a snowsuit as it is comfortable, soft, light, and breathable. Another lining material is flannel, a soft material that retains body heat well. Expensive natural down, with its great insulation characteristics, is between inner and outer linings, although cheaper snowsuits also use synthetic materials.


Sizing the Snowsuit

The right size is essential, so the boy feels comfortable inside the snowsuit. The size standards vary according to the country.
