Now that both my boys have worn Lands’ End winter clothing including parkas and snow pants, it would be very hard for me to consider anything else for them. Not only are these items high quality, perfect for handing down to each of my boys, but they keep them extra warm in our very cold winters.
Thankfully my boys can still fit into their Lands’ End parkas another year but Lucian’s snow pants from last year just fit him so I looked forward to trying out the Lands’ End Squall Waterproof Snow Pants in deck grey.
They are similar to our black pair from Lands’ End which Warren is currently wearing. The only thing I missed with these new pants was the velcro waist which allows me to get an even tighter fit than with the elastic alone. Lucian needs slim pants and unfortunately these are only available in regular size until boys size 8 which are also available in husky or slim.
While the waist is a bit big for Lucian, these snow pants have much of the same features that I have come to know and love from Lands’ End including snow gaiters at the hem to keep out snow and add additional warmth. They also have double layered nylon knees and seat which is so important when they are wearing them day in and day out for school recess. (If only all of Lucian’s uniform pants had that for gym!)
You’ll also find PolarThin™ insulation to keep these pants light and easier to move around in and Grow-a-Long legs which add another 2?. I have found that this extends the wear another year which I really appreciate. While these pants might cost a bit more, they are well worth the price. And since I have three boys, I’m able to get even more value out of our Lands’ End gear!
The Boys Waterproof Squall Snow Pants retail for $59 and are available from size 2T up to boys size 20 in slim or husky as well as regular. Look for the free shipping and other % off offer codes available on the website to help you save!
