WHY THE KIDS' THERMOBALL HOODIE IS THE MUST-HAVE THIS WINTER

Every Christmas has its must-have gifts for kids, whether it's a playground toy craze or the latest computer game. Well, kids' outdoor clothing is no different, and this winter is all about the The North Face Kids' Thermoball Hoodie! So what is it about this in-vogue insulated jacket that has made it so popular for little explorers? We thought we'd take a closer look to find out why the warmest kids' clothing is so cool...

1. It's awesomely adaptable

The real beauty of The North Face's Thermoball insulation lies in its versatility. Chilly but dry? Wear it as an outer layer. Cold and wet? It's the perfect mid-layer, transforming any old school jacket into a mega cosy barrier against the elements. No matter what winter throws at your charges when they're waiting for the school bus, they will be reaching for this hoodie.

2. It keeps them warm when wet

Thermoball retains its insulating properties when wet - an important factor to consider when the lightest dusting of snow always ends in a playground snowball fight! Unlike down insulation, the fibres of Thermoball don't clump together when they're exposed to the rain. Thermoball's loft is equivalent to 600 fill down, making it perfect for UK winters (cold, but not deep Arctic cold) You can learn more about insulated clothing here.

3. It's super packable

Its low-volume, packable nature means it's the perfect winter warmer but ideal in spring and autumn too, when chilly mornings lead to mild afternoons. Thermoball is amazingly compressible, so it can handle being stuffed in their backpack while taking up next to no space.

4. It's easy to wash!

Okay, this is the real icing on the cake. Thermoball is really easy to machine wash, so when the sleeves inevitably become grubby and food invariably ends up splotched down it, there's no need to panic. Simply pop it in the washing machine with a gentle detergent and tumble dry on a low heat afterwards to revive its loft.

5. It looks great!

Let's face it, all these great features count for very little without the kids' fickle stamp of approval. There's no point having a winning winter warmer if they won't wear it. Thankfully, not only is the Thermoball Hoodie super practical, it also carries The North Face's inherent fashion-friendly styling, and is available in a variety of colours, meaning it's just as wearable around town or in school as it is on the hill!
