frequently asked questions
how waterproof are the suits?
The suits are 10k waterproofing with 5k breathability and all of the seams are taped so not even the stitch holes will let water through so we guarantee the little ones will stay dry all day.
are the suits detachable?
Yes of course! If you want to put the suit in the washing machine then you can unpopper the faux fur and if it’s a hot day then you can unzip the whole hood to remove it completely. Don’t forget you can also resize the hood to fit a helmet or tighten it if you aren’t wearing one.
Which size should we get?
We have designed the suits so that there is room to grow. The suits should last two seasons unless the child is growing super quickly. We have a 14 day return policy if you wanted to try for size. If in doubt then we recommend buying one size up. Both the spandex thumb mitts and the boot covers are elasticated so they help hold the shape even if the sleeves need to be rolled up. If you’re skiing, the ski boots will stop the legs from dragging too so don’t worry too much about that.
DOES WATER SOAK THROUGH WHEN SAT IN THE SNOW?
No definitely not! The fabric is all 10k which essentially means that 10,000mm of water pressure is tested on the fabric without seeping through. In other words you could stand in the shower in your suit and not get wet so sitting/playing in the snow is not a problem.
Could you tell us about your eco credentials?
All of our ski suits are now made from recycled bottles! By using innovative technology, we can retain the comfort of our Dinoski suits, embedding wicking, adaptive warming/cooling and water repellency into recycled plastic fibers. This will equate to 22 plastic bottles per suit, which reduces oil consumption by 825g and CO2 by 1031g per suit!.
We also only use eco-friendly dyes, and we ship everything by sea rather than air which used 10% of the CO2. Sustainability is going to be a huge focus for us!
is there a warranty?
There is a 14 day returns policy so if you don’t like the suit or it doesn’t fit, you can return the suit free of charge! We also have a manufacturers warranty so if there is something wrong with the construction of the suit we will give you a full refund.
Are the suits warm enough?
The insulation in our suits is made from a hollow cotton microfiber which means that you don’t need a huge amount of thickness to keep you warm. We have used 100g insulation which has been tested down to temperatures of minus 12 with only one base layer.
will i be able to try before i buy?
The best thing to do is to order a suit from our website and if it doesn’t fit then you can send it straight back free of charge thanks to our 14 day free returns policy.
