We received a pair of black Lands’ End Squall Snow Pants in the bib-overall style to review. We didn’t have any snow here for the last month, but it finally decided to look like winter today!
Lands’ End quality snow pants are guaranteed to keep kids dry and warm all winter long. Not only are they made with a new waterproof and windproof material, but they are also built with double the durability at the knees and seat. Genius!
Before sending my 5 year old daughter out to play in her new snow pants, I inspected them pretty closely and was MORE than impressed… To say I was baffled, would be an understatement. Not only did I grow up in a consignment/retail store that my mother owned and managed, but I have extensive experience with kids clothing, and have two children myself. I wouldn’t say I’m an expert, but pretty darn close! Let me tell you, I have never seen such high quality snow pants made with such an attention to detail. I can already tell we are going to have these things for a LONG TIME.
I chose them in black for several reasons. Most colors will stain, but black usually stays looking pretty great even if you give it a good beating. It’s also a gender neutral color. My daughter can wear these snowpants for the next 2 or 3 seasons and then pass them down to my son who can wear them for a few seasons as well. I can tell that these snow pants could easily outlast both my two kids and still be able to be consigned when we’re done with them. The reinforced seat and knees make these near indestructible! They also have cool features like a hidden seam inside each leg which allows you to easily “let them down”, making them one size bigger and able to be used for one season longer!
You definitely get your money’s worth with the Squall Snow Pants. They come in two styles — snow pants and snow bibs. Best of all, they are extremely affordable, ranging from $59-$69. If you’re thinking that’s out of your budget, think about how many years you can use these pants for – especially the bib-overall style ones. The adjustable straps can be let down to make them longer and the hidden hem inside each leg can be let down for even more length. Unless your child grows more than 2 sizes in a year, these snow pants could easily last you at least 3 seasons, making them well worth their price. That’s roughly $20 a year!
All in all, I’m extremely impressed with these snow pants and would recommend them over any other brand of Children’s snow pants I’ve encountered.
Lands’ End’s new waterproof Squall Snow Pants are offered in a variety of sizes and colors. You might have a hard time choosing! Get them online at www.LandsEnd.com and in Sears stores across the country.
