THE STRENGTHS OF A CHILDREN'S SKI JACKET

Do you need an outfit to go to a snow school? From the age of 7, the jacket + trousers option is preferable to a skisuit: the child will have more freedom of movement. The new materials now benefit from appreciable technological progress, such as the increased resistance of fabrics or lighter insulation. Depending on the child's activity, the different thicknesses of the lining will offer appropriate protection against the cold, while avoiding heat stroke. Whether you're looking for a girl's or boy's ski jacket, discreet or flashy, you'll find a wide choice of colours and patterns, notably at Picture Organic or The North Face.

WHAT CRITERIA SHOULD YOU USE TO CHOOSE YOUR JUNIOR SKI JACKET?

Children's ski clothing must be practical while keeping them dry and warm. To choose the right ski clothing, check the level of waterproofing and breathability first. One fall is enough to get wet and find yourself in transit for the day. Waterproofness is indicated in "mm Schmerber": opt for an index at least equal to 10,000 mm, a guarantee of good performance. A children's ski jacket should also have breathable materials that effectively wick away perspiration. You can then look at the details: zips, storage compartments, zips, drawstrings, etc. The Spyder brand models offer a wide range of choices. Everything to make sure your child is comfortable and protected, ready to enjoy the winter!

THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD CHILDREN'S SKI JACKET

A child's ski jacket is comfortable and practical thanks to several functions: equipped with a snow skirt, it protects beginners in particular by preventing snow from entering the coat after a fall. Rossignol models are among the best, with proven quality. The fleece lining for the neck provides extra warmth, and the high models offer wind protection, which is often useful. Cuff tighteners are also a must, and can be chosen from scratch or elastic. The number of pockets is also important for a boy's ski or a girl's jacket: tissues, papers, phone, ski pass... The little ones can ski with peace of mind without forgetting anything!

WHAT CLOTHES TO USE UNDER THE SKI JACKET?

Layering allows you to stay warm: children will benefit from thermal underwear adapted to their needs, often in polyester or polyamide (warmer and more breathable). A fleece jumper slipped over the top will keep the heat in. As for accessories to complement the junior ski jacket, turn to gloves rather than mittens for children over 7 years old. Warm collars are perfect for a stay in the snow, more practical than a scarf. To complete your equipment, don't forget details such as sun cream and lip balm, for some good winter fun.
