Braving Europe’s Frigid Winter Weather with Icebreaker

We don’t review many products on Ciao Bambino. We stick to what we do best, sharing invaluable tips and advice about traveling with kids. I couldn’t resist, however, agreeing to give Icebreaker apparel a test drive now that I live in Switzerland.

Icebreaker’s specialty is marino wool clothing known to be breathable yet super warm. They produce a kids’ line for ages 1-14. I don’t know about you, but we endure a constant layers struggle with our 9-year-old who thinks less is more when it comes to clothing and detests feeling constricted and hot. Anything lightweight that provides real warmth is a gift for all.

Boy Wearing Icebreaker Hoody

Toasty despite frigid temps in Val Thorens, France

I opted to try the Kids Camper hoody as I like the idea of traveling with clothes that work for sports yet are nice enough to double as clothing for sightseeing too. Given that the past few weeks in Europe have been beyond frigid, we’ve put this dear hoody to the test!

The result? Despite skiing in single-digit temperatures, Devon never complained of the cold. And, it passes his hip enough test so he puts the hoody on without a fight. I just clicked the Icebreaker “like” button.

Good news, Icebreaker is having a winter sale right now and most items are 30% off. Check it out.

Icebreaker provided a free hoody for us to try. They didn’t ask me to express any particular point of view. As usual, all opinions expressed in this post are my own.
