It may be March (finally!), but unfortunately it’s not necessarily time to break out the spring weather gear. Indeed, we wake up to frost covered grass and a 40 degree day feels warm. One Step Ahead, one of our favorite online destinations for smart gear for kids, has little ones covered with an awesome collection of cold-weather gear called Cozy Cub. And, hey, if you’re lucky enough to enjoy warm weather making this Collection unnecessary, plan ahead for next year!

Cozy Cub Review

Like I mentioned, the weather here is still (bitterly) cold. We have to bundle up every day to walk to the bus stop and Max is usually my biggest concern. He’s been wearing some new gear from the Cozy Cub Collection. The Baby Stay-Put Fleece Hat with Earflaps ($12.95) is a cute fleece hat that keeps his head, ears and neck warm. The Hat is made from a soft, lightweight fleece for baby-friendly comfort. Parents will appreciate the large velcro fastener under the neck and the cute details like the baseball cap style. And, of course, we like that the hat stays snug on baby’s head.

One Step Ahead Cozy Cub Fleece Hat & Vest

The versatile Cozy Cub Vest is a great option for winter into spring weather. It keeps the core warm with non-bulky insulated and waterproof vest. The armholes are elastic, and the back is longer for extra coverage – perfect for mobile little people like Max. I really like that it’s not too thick, as adding bulk to a little person just adds headache in the winter. (Hello, super tight stroller straps!) I have no doubt Max will wear the Vest year round in Germany. It’s a great layering basic to have!

To Buy or Not to Buy

To Buy… One Step Ahead is a great source for kid and baby essentials every season, and the winter is no exception. The Cozy Cub collection is great quality, designed with active kids in mind and, best of all, very affordable.

Or Not to Buy… The pieces are all very basic, without a ton of style or flair, so we recommend buying the essentials and basics here and adding some of your tot’s personality with added accessories (like a fun shirt under the Vest, for example).

Shop! One Step Ahead’s Cozy Cub Collection is currently available with many pieces on sale. Everything is a very affordable price point – the Fleece Hat is $12.95 and the Cozy Cub Vest is $39.95. Shop for versatile three season pieces (like the Vest) and plan ahead for next year.

    It’s been a very long, snow filled, cold winter here in New Hampshire! I try to get my grandchildren out as much as possible to enjoy the time playing in the snow but my 16 mos. old granddaughter doesn’t like the cold! The Cozy Cub Baby Stroller Snuggly Bunting would be the perfect solution.
