You've spent months planning the perfect winter vacation. You've done everything in your power to ensure that you and your family are going to have the best family ski trip - ever. The lodging is booked, lift tickets purchased, and ski/ snowboard school reserved. Now it's time to gear up.

Have you ever tried to get a little one dressed for the snow? Oy Vey! It's a LOT of work. I always want to make sure the littles are dressed the warmest - you don't want anything standing in their way of having a good time. I was thrilled, no make that ecstactic when I discovered Burton's kids Mini Shred Striker one pieces.

If you have kids sized 2T - 5 I highly, highly, highly recommend Burton's Mini Shred Striker one pieces.(Online stores sell them for about $128)  No need for a jacket AND pants - the Mini Shred Striker one piece is the best of both worlds "sealing out winter with head-to-toe waterproof warmth and munchkin-friendly function." Two easy-access front zippers make getting these suits on  and off a breeze, an expandable hood which is perfect for helmets, and reflective trim for safety. Have I mentioned that they are "built for growth?" BOTH the legs and  sleeves can extend up to 2 more inches! How fabulous is that?!

Here are some of the other, more technical features of the Burton's Mini Shred Striker One Piece:

    •    DRYRIDE Durashell 2-Layer Coated Fabric
    •    Thermacore Insulation
    •    Room-To-Grow System
    •    Kangaroo Handwarmer Pockets
    •    Easy-On/Easy-Off Front Zipper
    •    Cargo Pocket on Right Leg
    •    Microfleece-Lined Handwarmer Pockets
    •    Taffeta Lining
    •    Safety Snap-Off Hood
    •    Critically Taped Seams
    •    Articulated Sleeves
    •    Articulated Knees
    •    Reflective Trim
    •    Microfleece Chin Saver
    •    Full Elastic Cuffs
    •    Glove Loops
    •    Ticket O-Ring
    •    Boot Gaiter

But the best thing about Burton's Mini Shred Striker one pieces? My kids LOVE them. Four cold days on the mountain at Park City Mountain Resort  and not a single complaint about the cold or wind (& trust me, there was plenty of both!). My boys were thrilled to spend as much time as possible on the mountain & can't wait to wear their "astronaut suits" again.
