Picture Ski Clothing for Kids – Grows with them!
You know how much it costs skiing and all you need to purchase to get your family kitted to going skiing. Now, you can get some cheap brands that are good enough, or maybe you want to splash out on a good brand. But then your kids grow up too quickly and you have made an investment that is not recovered– unless you have younger siblings to pass the clothes to and take advantage of it!
And it is great if you can find some decent brand for your kids, as you want your kid to be warm on the pistes. If you have very cold temperatures and your kid is wet and cold, he can ruin all the family’s day out. Skiing is very costly as to let this happen!
I was the other day visiting the dry slope at Chatham Snowsports Center and I pop into the ski shop, and these jackets from Picture caught my eye.
Picture is a brand that is made of 100% recycled, organic or responsible sourced materials. I like their logo and their idea. They always have vibrant colours. I have not got one jacket nor pants for me yet, but that might happen in the near future.
In the meantime, I was caught by the Slope Model and also by the Leeloo. This shop was showing the Slope Model in a brownish and blue, or two tones of blue.
The Leeloo I liked is blue and orange, and there is a flowery version for girls. They are 10k water resistant and also 10k breathability – keeping your kids warm but not over-heated.
It features a 7/10 heat rating and 80g of insulation. But for me the most important part are the hems which you can extend cutting a coloured thread on the inside, with no need to cut the liner. This gives more life to the arms of the jacket and same to the legs in the pants. They call it the “Grow with me” system. As a mum of two boys, I think this is brilliant!
The fabric is made of 49% recycled Polyester and 51% polyester with a PFC free water repellent.
The jacket features a ski pass pocket and Lycra wrists gaiters to keep your kids dry.
A retailer that carries Picture Clothing is Absolute Snow
I went to the shop within Chatham Snowsports Centre, who was carrying also the brand.
Shred-Dog is another brand that sells directly to consumer online that also caters high tech clothing to kids.
