The gear out there for kids continues to impress me more and more every year. I routinely get comments from my parents’ generation saying things like, “I only wish those were available when my kids were young!” I rely heavily on good gear to just get us out. As I have mentioned many times before, I know that gear is an investment. The trick is buying it to hand down, shopping sales and consignment and swallowing the fact that a little money may truly buy happiness (comfortable kids = happy kids = longer adventures).
In case you are wondering just HOW to keep kids warm in the winter, be sure to check out our recent post: Keeping Babies (and Kids) Warm All Winter
Also, below we link up to all the reviews we have done on this gear (it’s tried and tested by us!) Be sure to click through them and feel free to ask us questions!
Let’s get some kids in gear!
Prize #1: Real Kids Shades (3 winners)
We love these shades so much because they really do protect little eyes, they are vitally indestructible AND they are affordable. Winners will choose their shades (based on availability).
Read our full review here.
Prize #2: DucKsday Rainsuit + Fleece Suit Combo from Ollie and Stella Outfitters
While we love many of the DucKsday pieces, the classic Rainsuit + Fleecesuit is one of our top gear picks. It is extremely versatile because it can be layered under and used for virtually any conditions. You will see them pop up in our social media photos often (especially on Instagram), but here is our original review I wrote about them.
Prize #3: Wee Woollies Base Layer Set and Beanie in Apple/Budgie Blue
Best and most affordable Merino wool base layers for kids. See more about them below! Available up to size 6y for bigger kids.
Prize #4: Wee Woollies Baby Base Layer Set and Beanie (Winner’s choice of color, based on availability)
I am not exaggerating when I saw that L is wearing a Wee Woollies set almost every single day right now (sometimes during the day, sometimes at night, sometimes both). They are soft, wash super easily (even for Merino wool) and keep her warm. I love that these are specifically made to fit over a “diaper bum”. We do cloth and it’s no issue at all.
The photo below is of L layered up for hiking in her Wee Woollies. She also happens to be wearing her Real Kids Shades. I have on my Niva Jacket (LAST day to enter to win that!)
Prize #5: Muddy Munchkins Boots + Liners by MyMayu
Taking little feet by storm (ha – get it?!?!) this year – these boots make walking super easy so kids can worry about playing instead of what they are wearing on their feet. An awesome 3-season boot that we think every kid should have.
