Snowsuits

What does water column pressure mean when buying a snowsuit?

Water column pressure refers to how waterproof a material is. The higher the number indicated by water column pressure, the more waterproof the snowsuit.
The water column pressure is assessed by stretching the fabric over a pipe filled with water. The amount of water in the pipe (also called the water column) determines the water column pressure. This means that textiles with a water column pressure of 5,000 mm must hold the water back in a pipe filled with 5,000 mm of water. You will always find information about a snowsuit's water column pressure on our product information on the item card in the shop.

 

Info on waterproofness and snowsuits

Less than 2,000 mm - not waterproof, but can be water-repellent.
Over 3,000 mm - for light rain showers and short walks in the rain.
Over 5,000 mm - when it rains for a few hours, or where there is a large amount of rain in a short time.
Over 8,000 mm - for long periods in heavy rain.
Over 10,000 mm - for long periods in heavy rain and thaw.
Over 15,000 mm - now we would be getting quite far up in the northern hemisphere. This is not necessary in most climates.

 

What does breathability mean when buying a snowsuit?

Breathability is a term explaining of how much body heat the material allows to expel. The higher the number - the more breathable the clothes. It is important that the snowsuit is breathable as well as able to keep both snow and rain away from the body. When children run and play, their body heat increases and they sweat. The heat that is generated should be able to leave the suit again so that your child does not stay wet.
Breathability is a term to describe how much moisture vapour can penetrate through a square metre of fabric in 24 hours. Water vapour is measured in grams, so the suffix is g/m2. The higher the number - the more breathable the fabric is.

 

Info on breathability and snowsuits

Over 2,000 g/m2 - for normal play during which the child does not get warm.
Over 5,000 g/m2 - for more active play - where the child gets warm.
Over 8,000 g/m2 - recommended - for extra active play for many hours.

House of Kids recommends this snowsuit for your child
Most snowsuits today live up to the requirements necessary for most climates. If we are to recommend a good choice of snowsuit, a water column pressure of 10,000 mm and a breathability of 10,000 g/m2 would be optimal. However, it could certainly still work at a lower level - we simply recommend that the breathability is over 5,000 g/m2.

 

WHEN can a child put on their own snowsuit?

If your child is big enough to get their winter jacket off and on, he / she will at some point jump into the next challenge: getting their snowsuit off and on by themselves. You can help your child on their way by checking if zippers, velcro closures and press studs are easy for your child to use. If it seems a bit tricky, you can offer a little guidance through the use of the various features - practice makes, as you know, perfect. The age a child is when they are able to get the snowsuit on and off themselves varies a lot. Some children find it easy by the early age of 3 - while others find it much more fun to play and talk instead. Motor development is also very different from child to child. One thing is for sure though: they will probably learn it at some point.

 

Take the hood off the snowsuit…

For safety reasons, the hood must be removable. This is of course to avoid serious accidents if the cap should get stuck in a branch or a climbing frame. You get extra functionality if the hood can be adjusted to fit the individual child's head size. In addition, it is an advantage if the snowsuit has an elastic edge at the top of the hood. Most hoods can be buttoned under the chin. This feature ensures that the neck is protected from the wind and cold. If your child feels that the hood is disturbing their vision, the solution may be to remove the hood and use a tight-fitting balaclava instead.

 

Zipper, buttons or velcro on the snowsuit?

Sometimes there is one zipper, other times there is two. For small children, two zippers are a great idea. This is because the suit can be opened up more fully, and it provides extra space to make it easier to put on. When the child can put on their own clothing, we recommend a one-zipper snowsuit. Remember! It is easier for young children to use the zipper if there is something to grip on to. Therefore, a large zipper or zipper pull is worth looking out for.

 

Storm flap in the sleeve of the snowsuit

The storm flap is the ribbed edge at the armhole. The storm flap fastens around the wrist - without being too tight - and stops wind, rain and snow from penetrating the sleeve. When it is really cold, you can pull the storm flap outside of the mittens so that no air can enter. If there are velcro straps at the sleeves, you will have an extra secure fastening.

 

Boot straps on the snowsuit

The boot strap is placed under the sole of the boot. You must remember to adjust the boot straps so that they fit your child properly. The boot strap must fit snugly - neither too loosely nor too tight. You can get foot straps in elastic or rubber. The advantages of elastic straps are that there are many holes, which makes it easy to adjust so that your child does not feel the strap under the sole of the foot. On the other hand, the elastic strap can become slack and wear out faster than a rubber strap. The rubber strap is more durable, but does not have quite as many adjustment options as the elastic strap. The rubber strap can in some cases be felt under the foot, and it can seem bothersome to some children - others do not notice it at all.

 

Taped seams on the snowsuit

Taped seams mean that the snowsuit has fitted waterproof tape on top of all the seams. The waterproof tape prevents rain, snow and sleet from penetrating through the seams of the snowsuit. The waterproof tape is fixed inside the snowsuit.

 

Elastic in the waist of the snowsuit

If your child's snowsuit tends to "slip down", it may be a good idea to choose a snowsuit with elastic in the waist. Often, the elastic in the waist sits in a drawstring inside the snowsuit. This means you can tighten the elastic at each side.

 

Reflectors on snowsuits

Snowsuits should have reflectors on the front and back. An approved reflector can be seen in the dark at a distance of 140 meters. To be on the safe side, you can put extra reflectors on your snowsuit. There are many different types of reflectors. Some reflectors can be stuck on and replaced when needed. Others can be "clicked" around the arm or leg.

 

Extra wear resistance on rear and knees of the snowsuit

Many hours of play in a snowsuit can fly by easily, so it must be able to withstand the extra wear and tear that can occur on the knees, rear, shoulders and elbows. So look for reinforcements on the knees, elbows and rear. Some snowsuits are already made of a great durable material, and so no extra layer is needed to begin with.

 

Snowsuits have to be warm

It is the combination of materials that make up the snowsuit; outer fabric, membrane, lining and inner fabric. The outer layer is mostly made of polyester or nylon. The next layer is a waterproof membrane which should be breathable. The middle layer is lined. Most manufacturers use 3M Thinsulate or polyester for the lining. Snowsuits with teddy lining or fleece lining in the hood and the upper part of the snowsuit provide a little extra warmth and comfort.

 

A little about 3M Thinsulate and polyester lining in the snowsuit

3M Thinsulate is made of thin microfibers that trap the air molecules between the body and the weather outside. The more air the material traps, the better the material is at warming the body. 3M Thinsulate is a highly breathable and moisture-repellent material.

Polyester is a smooth and fine synthetic fibre that acts as an insulator and tends not to absorb water. Polyester is extremely durable and has good elasticity. It is also a popular material because it keeps its shape, does not shrink and has a very short drying time.

 

Extra pockets are good for ski holidays

If the snowsuit is also going to be used for this year's ski holiday, it is a good idea to choose a model with pockets on the sleeve or at the chest for the lift pass.

 

The best snowsuit

At House of Kids, we carefully choose the best snowsuits. We are selective and benefit from many years of experience in being able to offer your child the absolute best snowsuit. “Best in test”. Several of our snowsuits have been voted best in tests. Some snowsuits are best in test and price - where a comparison between price and quality has also been taken into account.

 

How do I find the best snowsuit for my child?

The best snowsuit for slim/thin children. The best snowsuit for heavy-set children. The best snowsuit for short or tall children. There is no set recipe to follow. If you are in doubt about which snowsuit to choose, we recommend contacting our customer service, who can help you make a good choice you are sure to be happy with. - -

 

How can I know if the snowsuit fits my child?

It is easy to find out if the snowsuit fits. When the child is wearing the snowsuit, you should be able to grab a good handful of loose snowsuit over each shoulder. When the child sits down in the snowsuit, it must not sit too tightly over the shoulders. The child must also be able to lean forward without the suit being too tight. However, also be aware that the snowsuit must not be too large. The child must be able to run and play freely. An elastic drawstring in the waist can therefore be of benefit.
