Re: Snowsuit or coat/snowpants

Yogamama28 I have a Hanna snowsuit for sale in the clothes section (I have it listed in 2t/4T but it is an 80) . I personally vote snowsuit for outside playing and a jacket for normal living stuff.

Re: Snowsuit or coat/snowpants

I've only done the separate coat/bibbed snow pants for our Ohio winters, never had an issue. Though looking back, I could see how the one piece may have been helpful...Honestly though, take a look at any consignment stores, facebook re-sale groups, consignment sales to find used. Much cheaper and you could get both styles to compare.

Re: Snowsuit or coat/snowpants

We always do separate coat and snow pants. Much of the time they just need their coat, so it doesn't make sense for us to have whole snowsuits

I'm looking at getting Stonz mitts for the girls. They have a toggle at the wrist and one almost at the elbow to really keep it on and keep snow out. They're quite pricey though, so that's making me hesitate to pull the trigger.

I usually get the bib snowpants and coat. The problem I have with the one peice is that it's less forgiving for outgrowth, and snowsuits can be pricey. Bib snowpants are more adjustable.

I actually saw that! She is just now getting into 2t clothes and I was planning on getting her a 3t coat/snow pants/snowsuit so it can fit her for the entire season. In guessing we'd buy a 90. I wish an 80 would be big enough! I would have snatched it up in a second

Re: Snowsuit or coat/snowpants

We like Patagonia here, and I have purchased both 2 piece Puffball sets and the one piece Otter suit. I only buy used and on sale. I like two pieces for smaller children, and then my daughter started out with the one piece in a 4t. Patagonia runs big. My kids always have separate winter coats that have nothing to do with their snow gear. I found that when my daughter was younger, it wasn't as easy for her to manage the bulk of a one piece. Although my son had bibs as a 1 year old and bibs worked out just fine.

Re: Snowsuit or coat/snowpants

We do one piece snowsuits (LL Bean or Lands End are my preferred, we get them on sale or from the outlet) for outside play and then opt for one piece fleece suits instead of coats when we go in the car (since you have to take the coat off to get in the carseat, then on again when you get out, etc. I prefer fleece). My DD potty trained last December at 20 months and we never had any issues with not being able to get the one piece suits off quick enough.

I have had snowsuit for the kids but they rarely got used. It's doesn't snow much here and they were a pain to get on them.
