The joys of winter know no age limits. Even though they may not be bombing down the tallest hill in the neighborhood in a sled or pelting each other with snowballs, toddlers can still have plenty of fun in the snow. But to do so warmly and safely they’ll need a high-quality snowsuit, a winter onesie to shield them from the elements. Here are some of 0ur favorites.
Columbia Baby Snuggly Bunny Bunting
The same Omni-Shield tech found in Columbia’s outerwear for adults makes this snowsuit both water- and stain-resistant. The hood and torso are lined with microfleece, and unzipping the diagonal zipper reveals a different whimsical design depending on which color you order.
Leveret Quilted Baby Snowsuit
The least expensive snowsuit on our list still comes with head to toe protection (literally, from hood to footie) and a soft fleece lining. It’s available in five different colors, and at this price you can probably afford to buy an extra to have on hand in case of an emergency, fashion or otherwise.
Cremson Baby Puffer
One of the more versatile baby snowsuits we saw, this down alternative-filled puffer comes with a detachable fur-trimming for the hood, fold over hand mittens, and a matching bonnet hat.
Carhartt Baby Camo Snowsuit
If your kid is an aspiring outdoorsman (or if you aspire for her to be an outdoorsman) this authentic Carhartt suit is a great choice. It has a branch and bird camo pattern and bright orange lining, so your kid will really look the part when you bring her along on your next winter hike or fishing trip.
The North Face Thermoball PrimaLoft Bunting
The North Face claims that the down alternative filling in this snowsuit is the equivalent of a 600-fill version of the real thing, which is pretty warm. There’s a sherpa lining on the interior and elastic at the hood and the cuffs to keep heat trapped inside the suit.
L.L. Bean Cold Buster Snowsuit
Thinsulate insulation makes this snowsuit simultaneously light and warm, and the reinforced stitching means that your kid will probably outgrow it before it wears out. Velcro and elastic keep the cuffs closed, and speaking of cuffs, they can extend an inch and a half so you don’t have to buy a new one in the event of a growth spurt.
Patagonia Reversible Puff-Ball Bunting
The lightweight shell has a water repellent coating that will keep the insulation — and your baby — dry even in damp conditions. And if you have a particularly stylish youngster, you’ll love the reversibility of this one: choose between a solid color and a whimsical pattern whenever your kid wears it.
Gap ColdControl Max Down Snowsuit
This quilted polyester snowsuit comes with detachable mittens and boots, the latter of which have a grippable coating on the bottom.
