alaska gear for babies?
Hi ak mamas!
I am finally moving back up to ak, and am so excited! I used to live there as a nanny, but now I've got my son in tow I wondered if anyone has any suggestions on winter/outdoor gear you found especially great or even a necessity? Also, best places to buy...I think I'd rather buy now and ship it up with me, rather than wait 'till we get there and order it up. I'm heading up sometime around february.
I've got a pair of over-booties kinda like the stonz, but am thinking I should be getting him some actual snow boots, too. ideas?
also, are the under layers that rei sells up there good, or should I look somewhere else for some wool/silk stuff?
