The Key To Staying Warm in Cold Weather - Smart Layering

1. The base layer that manages moisture and is comfortable against the skin all day long. Wool or Thermolite is a great choice here.

2. The warm mid layer - Fluffy fleece and warm wool are great choices here.

3. The windproof, waterproof & breathable top layer that is durable and provides protection against the elements for all-day outdoor play. All of our Winter jackets and ski gear check these boxes!


Materials Matter

Choosing the Best Base Layer for Your Child

Wool base layers are the warmest, and great for being outdoors for extended periods of time. Taitoa and Taival are great wool options!

Man-made materials are great for sports. The man-made materials we use are polyester/Thermolite® or Tencel®. Sportti and Lani are great options for very active outdoor play!

Wool blends are the best of both worlds. They're great for active play in cold weather. Kinsei is our favorite wool blend!

Layer 1: Base Layers

Warm, moisture-managing base layers for cold days

Staying warm in winter starts with the base layer. The goal is to have a soft, comfortable layer next to the skin that promotes optimal warmth but breathes and wicks away moisture even if kids get sweaty from active play.

Lani - Warmth for Sports & Play

Winter Category Base Layers Image 2

The Secret is the Thermolite®

Cotton chills kids when moist, but the warm Lani base layer set with Thermolite® transfers moisture away from the skin.

It keeps kids comfortable, no matter how many trees they climb, snowmen they build, or slopes they slide. 

Layer 2: Mid Layers

Keep the warmth in and the cold out!

The job of a mid layer is to trap any heat lost from the base layer and insulate the body.

It goes between the base layer and the outer layer, such as a waterproof jacket or snowsuit.

Fleece and wool are great materials for mid layers!
