Family Adventures in the Canadian Rockies - Skisuit and Rainsuit Review

Our Winter with Ducksday - The BEST Children's Ski Suit on the Market  :)

"What we LOVE about the Ducksday Ski Suit:


1. It's easy to put on. I watched a friend fight with her child for a good 20 minutes (or more) because the girl didn't want to put on her ski pants and jacket. And fair enough. Kids hate having to put on dozens of layers. The one-piece ski suit on the other hand is easy peasy to put on and it's so warm, my son could go outside in it with nothing else on other than a set of long underwear.

2. WARMTH. My son has been outside skiing and playing in temperatures down to -30 C this winter, and he's never cold. Everybody else is (me included) but not him.

3. The snow stays where it belongs - away from the child's skin.  I don't know about your children, but it's game over if my son gets snow down his back. Truly, end of a good adventure when this happens. Fortunately with a one-piece ski suit, snow stays on the ground. There's no jacket-pant gap. We really appreciate the lack of gap around the belly and back area when cross country skiing because my son falls a lot! We have much better success rates when he is in his Ducksday suit rather than in ski pants and a separate jacket.

Other Ducksday Products that we LOVE


We also love the Ducksday rain suit. My son wore the same funky red colour rain suit for two years before moving into a ski suit. And we actually wore the rain suit all winter long last year. It was a warm winter and we didn't feel the need to wear ski pants most of the winter.

The rain suit keeps kids dry and warm. It's also loose enough that you can layer underneath it with a light puffy jacket and use it for cross country skiing or winter hiking.

I would highly recommend either the rain suit or the ski suit for all children (or ideally, one of both.)"

Layering Kids for Cold Weather

by Lin on 11/15/13

Seriously, layering is the best way to go, both for warmth and for the ability to adjust warmth as the weather or the activity changes. Here's a great guide from Tales of a Mountain Mama ! http://talesofamountainmama.com/2013/11/layering-kids-cold-weather.html

Kids can stay dry and clean with Ducksday Rainsuits -Babyology

by Lin on 10/23/13

"These versatile rainsuits are sure to become a favourite item in your child’s wardrobe. So versatile, these great suits can be used in the snow, at the beach, or for jumping in muddy puddles!

Ducksday Rainsuits are designed to fit over children’s clothing. It can mean an extra layer for warmth, or an extra layer to keep clothes clean. The suits are made from soft, breathable water and wind proof material, and are fitted with waterproof zippers.

They’re nice and easy to get on, with velcro tables on the hood and sleeves and elastic stirrups under the feet. The Rainsuits, from Belgian brand Ducksday, have fluorescents strips as an added safety feature and fold up nice and neatly into a hidden attached carry bag."

Gear Review: DucksDay One Piece Snowsuit -The Kid Project

by Lin on 10/23/13

"Ollie and Stella Outfitters have been generous with me as I’ve tested their one-piece rain, wind, and snow suit during each of the four seasons. You might recall this item making it in our “Multi-Tasking Must-Haves” series last spring. And after 5 more months of having this piece of gear around, I still agree. While we didn’t run into any adverse weather on our all-family backpacking trips this summer, it would have been infinitely useful if we had. It is by definition multi-tasking."

"Design: This suit is designed to be a shell, with room to layer extensively underneath. And it does that successfully! You can layer as much or as little as you like. The foot stirrups work well for keeping the snow out and the suit leg down around the child’s ankle. Simple features like the velcro adjustment on the hood make it easy to “pull in” some of the bulkiness for a better fit.

Reflective detailing make this useful for night-time adventures such as biking and walks in the winter.

Performance: The water and wind protection of this suit has performed admirably. Having the suit be “one-piece” means hours of outdoor play without snow up the back and rain down the pants. Great piece of gear to have with you always and throw on over clothes for spur-of-the-moment play adventures.

Usefulness: You really could have one suit that does it all for every season’s harsh weather. The winter uses are more obvious. But it would be great for windy hikes and as small, lightweight, rain protection for backpacking or hiking with your kids."

"Best clothing to keep kids cool!"

by Lin on 07/09/13

Check out the new review of our Ducksday summer gear!  Our surfsuits (one piece suits designed for kids up to 3) and rashguards and boardshorts (for kids 3-10) all made the cut:  http://talesofamountainmama.com/2013/07/best-clothing-to-keep-kids-cool-giveaway.html.

In addition to looking and feeling cool - our gear is also the best to keep out UV rays, both UVA and UVB, unlike regular sunscreen.  Our family was able to play outdoors all day on our latest camping excursion :)
