3. Price vs Features
When it comes to winterwear for kids and toddlers, there can be a huge disparity in price, making it hard to understand how much to spend.
At the top end of the market, prices can be eye-watering, with luxury brands charging up to £600+ just for a kids jacket! High price doesn’t always mean high quality and most of the time, in these cases, a large part of the price is purely based on the logo / brand name, rather than the technical features.
At the other end of the market, you see prices which seem too good to be true, but this should be a warning flag! A ski jacket which costs £30 probably gets made for less than a tenner, which isn’t going to be the most reliable thing in sub zero temperatures at the top of a mountain, where tantrums are a parent’s enemy.
So when looking at price you should actually be comparing against features.
Here’s a few essential features to look for to ensure a child’s comfort on the slopes:
Taped seams; aqua-seal zips; elasticated boot covers; zip pockets; hoods which fit helmets; inner hand cuffs / spandex thumb mitts; 6K-10K waterproofing!
Of course, Dinoski has all of the above and more!
