Kids Base Layers
When parents dress their children for cold weather they usually place a cotton top next to the skin as a makeshift base layer. Such a garment obviously has thermal properties but the major downside is that cotton absorbs moisture like a sponge and takes a lot of energy to dry out. You may think that your kids are not going to get wet, but they have a knack of finding puddles, eschew waterproofs when it rains, and generally bury themselves in snow. Once wet, these cotton base layers will pull heat away from your kids body, chilling them quickly. To keep your little darlings happy and warm you need to invest in a good quality synthetic base layer, that will absorb very little moisture and trap warm air next to the skin, providing superior insulation. They also dry very quickly when washed, saving you time and energy.
