The Essential Outdoor Clothing Checklist For All The Family This Spring My Baba 5 March, 2020 Fashion & Beauty, Kids' Fashion, Living This time of year can be difficult when it comes to kids and their clothing. It’s not quite winter but it’s not quite spring yet, there’s still a chill in the air that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere just yet. Like most, we are yet to put our full trust in British weather and believe there is still time to invest in warm, comfy clothes for you and your kids. Since 1997, Mountain Warehouse has been providing families with high-quality outdoor clothing and equipment. Whether you’re an active family or just like getting out and about once in a while, it’s never too late to invest in some outdoor clothing in time for an inevitable wet and windy spring. Here is a rundown of some of our favourite Mountain Warehouse pieces that we think you’re going to love: Merino Kids Round Neck Base Layer Top A thermal piece of clothing is a great addition to any wardrobe, especially if your child loves to be out and about in the cooler weather. A thermal may just seem like any other jumper or fleece but they have some impressive features that make them much more than that. The Merino Kids Round Neck Top is an extra warm thermal baselayer. What differentiates this thermal from others is its lightweight and breathable material. There’s nothing worse than a thermal that instantly makes you feel overheated and before you know it you’re already taking it off. It’s important to get the right balance and this thermal piece does just that. Whether they’re out and about playing or just covering up in the cold, let them enjoy the long-lasting comfort from the moment they put it on. Sizes 2 to 13 years Merino Kids Base Layer Thermal Pants Complete the look with the matching thermal bottoms! Made from a merino wool blend, these are guaranteed to keep them feeling snug all day long. Although these bottoms will be perfect for lounging around, they’re also perfect for the adventurous child who loves to get their knees dirty. All you need to do is pop them on and watch them go and they’re made to ensure they’re cool and comfortable as well as keeping moisture away from the skin, keeping them dry and comfortable from morning until night. Their thermals come in a range of colours, let your kids pick their favourite or even mix and match. Sizes 2 to 13 years Talus Kids Round Neck Base Layer Top Introducing the Talus Kids Long Sleeve Round Neck Top! If you’re looking for something trendy and lightweight, we think this could be the next best purchase for your child. We love the colour of this base layer top and think it will look super cool if you’re off abroad against a white and snowy backdrop. People can be put off by thermals due to them making you feel bulky and restricted. However, the lightweight material of this thermal piece doesn’t create any extra padding and is great for those wanting to use it daily as an extra layer. If that wasn’t enough, the fabric is also high wicking and quick drying – perfect if you’re looking to give it a quick wash and wear it again the next day. Sizes 2 to 13 years Talus Kids Base Layer Thermal Pants If you can’t get enough of the teal, why not dress your child in it from head to toe? We love this look and think all their friends will be asking where they got this stylish combo. Similar to the thermal base layer top, the bottoms are made from a lightweight and fast-drying fabric, perfect for long days playing outdoors. Your child might have the energy to keep moving all day but they need to be comfortable to do so. Made from 100% polyester, these bottoms are super comfortable and feel soft against their skin. Once they put them on they’ll be no stopping them, so sit back, relax and watch them go! Sizes 2 to 13 years Merino Womens Round Neck Thermal Top If you’re going to treat your child to something new, then why not treat yourself too? The Merino Women’s Round Neck Thermal Top in black is the perfect high-performance base layer that will protect you against the wet and breezy spring weather. If there’s one colour you can’t go wrong with, it’s black. As the weather slowly gets warmer, you may not feel the need to pack on all the layers, so why not try this top on its own. Try jazzing it up with a colourful scarf and ta-da – you’ll be both warm and stylish.
