Do you have a big ski trip planned? We do too! We are going to Ski Banff and we are so excited. This is our first ever family ski trip so I have been gathering all the things we need for the trip and looking for the warmest and best gear to help keep us outdoors longer! I was provided with the perfect kids ski wear for my son by Obermeyer in order to facilitate review. Making ski clothing since 1947, Obermeyer focuses on mountain-inspired ski wear that looks great while keeping you warm, dry, and comfortable.
Obermeyer Kids Ski Wear
Obermeyer has lots of choice when it comes to kids ski wear. They have a line for Teen Boys, Teen Girls, Kids Boys, and Kids Girls. They have styles, colors, and sizes to suit every child. Obermeyer even has this great option where you can click on outfits and they show you all the coordinating kids ski wear.
You will find various kids ski wear including: ski suits, ski jackets, ski pants, suspender pants, bib pants, mid layer jackets, base layer tights, gloves, mittens, and balaclavas.
What makes Obermeyer Kids Ski Wear great? To me, it is the innovations and inventive designs.
Kids Ski Wear That Is Waterproof And Breathable
Obermeyer independently third party tests all of its fabrics for performance verification. They use HydroBlock™ Sport to resist up to 10,000mm before water penetration and 10,000 grams of water vapor can pass through within a 24-hour time frame. This means you the snow stays out but it is still breathable so you stay more comfortable.
More Kids Ski Wear Advanced Tech Features:
You get state of the art performance because of innovative technologies like these:
Interior windguards ensure that the elements do not penetrate the closed zipper teeth and send a chill to your chest. When the weather is freezing and a fully zipped up front zipper is tucked under your chin, there’s nothing better than the top of the windguard having fleece to prevent the freezing zipper from touching your chin.
Control Zone Ventilation™
Strategically placed adjustable openings and closures for core thermal regulation. Underarm vent zips, thigh vents, and jacket closures all insure the greatest flexibility while maintaining waterproof/windproof closures to meet the most challenging weather conditions and aerobic exertion.
Integrated Powder Skirt with Snap-Away™ Feature
The powder skirt keeps powder snow from reaching your core section and helps reduce heat lost from the bottom of the hem to keep you a bit warmer and dryer when skiing. An innovative Snap-Away™ feature lets you remove the skirt for a more tailored fit when not skiing.
Obermeyer Ski Contour™
Extra length in sleeves and pre-curved arms are crafted to mimic the shape of a skier’s body and allow for a better range of motion.
Obermeyer Authentic ‘I-Grow’
Some of the Obermeyer kids ski wear features the innovative ‘I-Grow’ or extended wear system to help increase longevity of a child’s garment. By simply snipping the colored threads, you can lengthen the sleeves by 1 1/2” and the pant cuffs up to two inches. All parents are sure to love this feature that helps them get more wear out of the kids ski clothing.
My son absolutely loved his Obermeyer kids ski wear and I will buy the brand again. I love how well it really is designed to grow with him so I get more than one season out of his ski wear!
