You don’t need a huge budget to update your winter wardrobe. Head to the ‘middle-aisle’ to top up on ski socks, thermals, snow boots, jackets and helmets – perfect for those fast-growing kids who are in it this season and out of it next…
Here is our pick of what’s hot on the high street and on-line this winter:
Cover your heads
UVEX are showcasing a new Visor 400 helmet design at a very competitive price of £175, and the ever popular P1us 2.0 helmet has some great new colours; bright orange and on-trend olive green…
Darling, can you see the kids?
Most resorts now insist that children ski with a ‘casket’ on. Spotting your child from a distance when they are all togged up isn’t the easiest, especially during peak holiday periods. Make sure your child stands out from the crowd with these stylish and easily spottable fun and funky helmet covers from Coolcasc. They come in a number of designs that include the elusive snow flamingo. The MadDogSki.com team rather like the go-faster silky-blue pom-pom.
Toastie and warm
If you are someone who feels the cold then these are for you. A heated ski glove from Steiner which we think will prove very popular, not only because of the price, but particularly with those of you who really suffer with the cold on their hands, or have Reynards – we know from talking to our customers in the shop that this is a real issue for so many…
Corduroy on the slopes
Protest have added to their fabulous range of ladies ski wear this year with a ladies ski jacket made from waterproof cord, ensuring a fashionable look on the slopes but still retaining functionality. With matching waterproof cord mittens and dungarees. This a big hit in the MadDogSki.com office and we will definitely be enjoying corduroy on the slopes this season.
Thank you to our friends at Love & Piste who have been helping us to review new skiwear collections, exciting new designs, and products above.
Last year it was Leopard. This year it’s cord. We are loving the corduroy dungarees from Protest this winter and cant wait to try then out in the snow. They fit beautifully and stop snow, and heat, from escaping from around your midriff.
We all love a good boot but a brilliant sock is worth it’s weight in…. Merino or Bamboo!
BAM – MadDogSki.com is a big fan of these socks. We received a sample a good few years back – no other sock has lasted or washed as well as the BAM socks. Made from supersoft bamboo blended with polymide to make them long lasting, they come in some great colours too.
Smalls have a new collaboration with the coolest hosier on the block – Collegien. They have created the softest ever mulesing free Merino sock. It has been lovingly crafted from fine spun 100% sustainable, fully traceable Merino wool and is now available for the whole family. MadDogSki.com has a special code (MD20) for you to use if you would like to treat yourself to a pair of these fab socks.
