We were given a children’s Aldi (Crane brand) gloves, ski pants and ski jacket by friends who kids had outgrown them.
They had used them for one Victorian ski trip and handed them onto us instead of placing in a charity bin.
We used them once and the quality seems reasonable…longevity is also unknown but for kids especially who tend to outgrow clothes and are only likely to wear such gear for one or maybe two seasons until outgrown or fashions change. With limited wear, the gear has survived with little evidence of stitching or fabric issues.
Don’t know the price paid so can’t comment on whether they were value for money.
Best Jacket for Cold Weather I ever bought, well best bang for buck as I don’t go into snowfields so I can’t comment on their use there. Used it when we went to NZ, surprisingly they have Cold places there
They have really warm hearted people there though.
I bought a ski jacket for a trip to Europe in winter for my growing son. It had lots of useful pockets was large enough and was made of water repellent material, so appropriate for any type of cold weather. The zip was not very solid.
We also bought woolen thermal and these are really the best to have, light and warm under fine wool jumpers.
I think adults can afford to buy something a bit stronger for the long term, but it’s definitely great for kids. That said, I would rather buy second hand, but it’s a bit limited in Queensland.
