Treading a line between comfort and practicality, Barts’ socks are made with a 16% merino, 84% synthetic mix so they won’t stretch, can be washed at 40 and still deliver wonderful merino warmth.
Adventure Grana Junior Polar Buff | £23
Buff takes its range of children’s headwear to the slopes by adding a cylinder of Polartec fleece fabric inside for extra warmth. Wear it as a neckerchief, hair band, headband, mask, scarf, cap, beanie or even pirate hat! Junior, Baby and Adult sizes are available with dozens of patterns and colours. A must for long, cold chairlifts!
Isbjörn Helicopter Winter Jacket | £150

Washable at 40 degrees, it’s wearable all-year, with ‘grow cuffs’ that extend the sleeve by 3cm (one size) for growing kids.
Decathlon Wed’ze Kids’ Ski Harness | £10
Designed for children between 3 and 6, the Wed’ze Ski Harness helps you give your child controlled freedom on the slopes to ski with you. A long pair of ‘reins’ is attached to the hips, so you can control your child’s speed from behind or pull them from the front. Clip attachments mean you can detach it for ski lifts, or stow it in a rear pocket.
Burton Impact Wrist Guard Youth | £21
Skatepark-style protection for the snowpark, Burton’s Impact Wrist Guard is for wearing under gloves. Velcro fasteners secure the fit around the wrist and across the knuckles, and a wrist loop helps pull them into place. On the back, tapered splints stop the wrist snapping back in a fall, and on the palms pads help cushion against impacts.
Isbjörn Squirrel Winter Cap | £40
Made with the Swedish outdoor kids clothing company’s two-layer 15k/15k DWR finished outer fabric, with a soft, fluffy fake fur lining, as well as Primaloft Black insulation, the Squirrel is a joy to wear. Coming in 8 colours, it’s also much lighter than other hats in this design. A Velcro under-chin closer, and adjustable back buckle deliver perfect fit.

This Smalls top is made from superfine pure merino wool with a fluffy texture inside that’s cosy not scratchy like others. Available in 8 colours, your kids will reach for this versatile, stylish top all year for all reasons.
Forcefield Kids’ Back Protector Kadet L1 | £65
If your child is a budding racer – or simply skis, snowboards or attacks the park like one – then you might want to give them a little more impact protection than just a decent helmet. The Kadet back protector is fully CE approved and designed specifically for children, made with Nitrex Evo – a shock-absorbing flexible material that keeps protecting your child’s vulnerable back and spine, even after multiple impacts, without restricting comfort or range of movement.
Giro Crue MIPS Kids Ski Helmet | £75
With its Multi-Directional Impact Protection System, to protect from the rotational forces of angled impacts, the Crue MIPS is a skate-inspired hardshell helmet. An ABS shell will take drops and dings without degrading protection, while a removable fit system at the back works with the fixed chin straps to keep it in place.
