Highly-rated and perfect for very cold climates, the experts at L.L. Bean have crafted this wind and water-resistant snowsuit that’s packed with Thinsulate insulation to provide toasty warmth without the bulk. The one-piece suit has a full zip for easy on and off. Reinforced durability at the knees, seats, and cuffs and velcro closure and elastic cuffs keep in the warmth and lock out the snow.

This suit comes in infants and toddlers sizes and all sizes include hidden “grow” cuffs to lengthen up to 1.5 inches to accommodate mid-season growth spurts.

Whether your babe is outside in a stroller or just beginning to crawl, sit, or stand in the snow, they will need a warm and easy-to-wear suit. This one-piece bunting is insulated with 100% recycled down and lined with super-soft polyester. Generously sized, the bunting will keep those little bodies warm and protected. Parent reviewers do note it runs large, so it may last you through two seasons. The double zipper is appreciated, especially when dressing squirmy toddlers.

Perfect for little ones, this two-piece set comes with a soft, fleece-lined waterproof jacket and separate snow bibs. Suitable for outdoor play, skiing, and other snow sports, the articulated knees and reinforced seat makes the set ideal for winter fun. Parent reviewers appreciate that the set is warm and not too bulky, so it’s easy for kids to play and move. The snow bibs have Columbia’s OUTGROWN feature, which extends the lengths of the cuffs so they could last through another season. 

Best for Big Kids: HOTIAN Snow Pants & Jacket Set

Big kids will love staying warm and looking great in this snow pants and jacket set that's perfect for skiing, hiking, camping, or playing outdoors. Waterproof and breathable, this set is rated for temperatures dipping below negative 30 degrees! With sizes ranging from 4 to 16 and over 20 color combinations, there’s a style and size for any kid.

Parent reviewers praise the brightly colored set since it’s super-easy to find their child on the ski slope or anywhere outdoors. Kids love the warm sleeve liners that include thumb holes. Use the size chart, since some reviewers note the pants run a bit small.

If all you need are snow pants, splurge on this versatile pair. With sizes ranging from XXS through XL and 12 color choices, these unisex pants will keep kids warm on even the coldest days. Great for skiing, snowboarding, or just playing outdoors, they’re waterproof, breathable, and have reinforced knees for extra support. Silicone grippers at the leg openings keep the pants secure and the snow out. Columbia’s OUTGROWN feature allows parents to extend the length of the pants, so they may last two seasons.

Best for Playing: OAKI Kids' Snow Suit

Extra-durable, parents praise this as “the best snowsuit around” for a multitude of reasons. Made of washable, extra-durable, two-layer polyurethane shell and a polyester filling, it’s rated for negative 15-degree temperatures. With sizes from 12 months through 10/11, this unisex suit comes in four colors, including the “real tree snow camo” style that nature-loving kids will love.

Outfitted with a three-panel hood, it can snap around your kiddo’s face or snap completely off if they are wearing a ski helmet. Elasticized legs and arm cuffs keep snow and cold out and elastic stirrups help pant legs stay put. 

Best Fleece: Columbia Boys' Western Barlow Bunting

Super warm and styled with oh-so-cute animal ears, this fleece bunting will keep little ones warm and snug all winter long. Made of 100% polyester, the fold-over cuffs at the hands and feet make it easy to cover up little hands and feet (and keep them covered). Six colors provide lots of options for you to choose from while sizes range from 0 to 3 months all the way up to 18 to 24 months. 

Best Waterproof: Reima Lammikko Waterproof Rain Pants

Leave it to a Scandinavian company to develop waterproof rain pants that are perfect for all-weather play. For warmer climates, wear the pants over regular clothes, and in colder temperatures, simply layer fleece pants or other layers below the rain pants. Made from flexible materials and available in a range of fantastic colors, these are made to fit kids from 9 months old to 8 years old.

The suspenders help keep them up and secure, but parents note it can be a little tricky going to the bathroom with them on (although not much different than snow bibs). All of Reima’s products run about one size larger than traditional US sizes, so ordering your child’s current size is like ordering up one size.
