We’re rather fond of anything that involves onions. But dressing like an onion isn’t just for fun – it’s the best way to keep your kids warm, dry, and comfortable this winter! Several thin layers are actually warmer than one thick layer, and regulating your child’s temperature is much easier (just add or remove a layer)!
Here at Onion River Kids, we have all the layers you need to stay safe and cozy for serious cold-weather play! Make sure you have every layer covered:
Layer 1: Base layers that wick sweat and dry quickly, like Merino wool tops and bottoms from SmartWool or Icebreaker and Capilene from Patagonia.
Layer 2: Mid-layers that insulate and breathe, like fleece zip-ups and pullovers from Columbia, Patagonia, and The North Face.
Layer 3: Outerwear that offers warmth and wind and water protection, like Patagonia down jackets (certified with RDS: Responsible Down Standard) and Puffball jackets (with Green Tech filling made from 90% recycled materials) – all treated with a water-resistant DWR finish, and 30% off right now!
Layer 4: Wool socks (just one pair!) – many of us grew up with feet shoved into too-tight boots thanks to two or three pairs of thick socks stuffed on our feet. One pair of insulating, breathable wool socks from Smartwool or Darn Tough will do the trick much better!
Layer 5: Hats, gloves, mitts, and scarves – keeping vulnerable skin on hands, necks, and faces protected is essential, and we have a huge selection from Kombi, Jupa, and Marmot. And all mittens and gloves are 30% off, too!
The next time you suit your little ones up for a day outside, think like an onion. Stop by for recommendations for every layer!
