Kids winter jackets for the UK chill
Kids love the snow and ice. At least they do until they notice that they can't feel their fingers and toes any more. After two winters of whiteout, it might be an idea to make sure the little ones are ready with their winter jackets. UK stockists offer a wide range of outdoors wear to resist those freezing temperatures.

Snap up one of their Dare 2b Band Wagon children's ski jackets, made from waterproof and breathable fabric with a water repellent finish. There is a detachable snowskirt, which makes it perfect for sledging. They come in bright pink, orange or yellow banded designs at a markdown price of £59.95
