Well, on Saturday it was drippy wet outside in the snow. Excellent for making snowmen and digging around in puddles of muck, so we put on the new blue Golden Valley splash suit (see previous post). Here it is on Big Boy:
It is a size 6 (the size 5 was very small… the same size as his 4T MEC Newt Suit). Big Boy is about 105 cm tall, and this has the bottom hem rolled under about 4 inches (there is a nice mix of metric and imperial for you!), and you can see it fits over his LL Bean Kahtadin 4T snowsuit quite nicely, and still lots of room to bend and grow.
Unfortunately, like all inexpensive waterproof rain/splash suits, it keeps in the sweat. Here are a couple photos of the condensation both on the outside of the snowsuit (red) and the inside of the splash suit hood (blue). But I would rather hang up a snowsuit to dry a bit inside, than have him crying wet and cold outside when ice water and filthy mud and slush soak into his winter clothes. If he is sweating like that, it is because he is warm warm warm!
Sorry, it was dark outside (yes it is still getting dark before 5pm here), so no photos of it in action in the snow yet!
