Children's Base Layers
If anything is guaranteed to put children off an outdoor activity it is being cold whilst doing it. Learning a new sport often involves standing around for periods of time, and if the right clothing is not worn, then heat is going to be lost and the body will start to chill. The mistake that most parents make when buying base layers for their children is to opt for the cheapest brands, relying solely on a bulky outdoor jacket to keep their kids warm. This defeats the object of the layering system and can often lead to overheating or rapid heat loss - how many children have you seen on the ski slopes taking off their thick jackets because they are too warm, only to start to shiver as they loose their body heat through cheap thermal underwear?
Sub Zero take a more technical approach to their childrens base layers. The current range is based on the award winning Factor 1 Plus seamless base layers, utilising the same 100% super soft polyamide yarn and impregnated hydrophilic treatment. For all intense and purposes, they are scaled down versions of the adult garments. The prices are not as competitive as some brands but they are UK made and are built to last, keeping your child warm and comfy when outdoors.
