When we talk about kid’s jackets, there are various types of jacket protection available that are suitable for different weather conditions and sports. Have a look below;
Fleece jackets are made of polyester synthetic wool such as polar fleece and generally lightweight. Fleece jackets
are thick and warm and ideal for casual wear.
Hardshell jackets are specially designed for the alpine as they are extremely waterproof, windproof, breathable, and durable. While backcountry skiing, mountaineering, alpine climbing, and trekking, hardshell jackets are the excellent choice that can withstand the worst winter conditions. Hardshell jackets
are not insulated, hence you need to keep your body warm by wearing the base layer and mid layer.
The classic softshell jacket
features a water resistant shell and an insulating layer. The purpose of softshell jackets is to serve as both out layer and mid layer while allowing breathability yet lesser protection from wind and cold. Softshell is ideal for summer and high exertion outdoor activities where perspiration is the main concern.
Most insulated jackets are breathable, water resistant, and puffy. An insulated jacket
is made of high quality synthetic materials that give you the utmost protection and comfort. Salewa
