A carefully chosen selection of children's salopettes for boys, highlighted because of their value for money, level of protection, style and durability.
Dare2b Donkey Kick Kids Ski Salopettes - £15
These Dare2b salopettes for boys feature all of the essential elements of a great pair of ski pants: they are waterproof to protect from external wetness and have high levels of breathability to protect from internal wetness, they are windproof to maintain a safe temperature, they have an elasticated waist to ensure comfort, and they have snow gaiters at the ankles to stop snow from getting up the salopette legs. More than this, however, they are incredibly stylish, with a chic checkered design, and available for the truly amazing price of just £15 - down from the recommended retail price of £40 - from the Portstewart Clothing Company (portstewartclothing.com).
Marvelous Boys Salopettes - £24.95
Made by the relatively unfamiliar ski clothing company Marvelous, these salopettes for boys have two zipped pockets, a padded tricot lining for extra warmth, a ventilation system at the side of the leg, a belt and detachable braces. Their simplistic black style is appealing to the eye, and their bargain price of just £24.95 from Trekwear (trekwear.co.uk) makes them an excellent choice.
Columbia Boys Salopettes and Ski Jacket - £39.99
Not just salopettes for boys, but a ski jacket and salopettes combined for an excellent cost. Produced by the respected skiwear company Columbia, this pair of items comes with fleece lining, adjustable straps on the pants and an adjustable hood on the jacket, advanced water repellent technology from Columbia's Omni Shield brand, and a special design to ensure that the material dries much faster than most alternatives (a great advantage for children playing in the snow). Purchase them together for £39.99 at Little Terra (littleterra.co.uk).
