Gotland is Best in Test
The toddlers’ winter one-piece continues the text victories of Stavanger
Even the Swedes think we are the best: The independent Swedish Bäst-i-Test testing site has years of experience in testing snowsuits on real kids, letting them and their parents do the judging. Reima’s classic snowsuit Stavanger has won the test two times, and now it is time for its little sibling, Gotland, to show its strength as test winner for 2019 in the toddlers’ category.
The jury described the overall as “a well-constructed winter one-piece of the highest quality, always keeping warm and dry”. The only criticism we got was that it should have more reflectors.
The jury especially praises the overall for ease of dressing, and marks it masters the art of feeling spacious, yet being flexibly close to the body. They end their review in an impressive list of great sales arguments: “Perfect fit, very easy to keep clean, just the right warmth, amazingly waterproof”.
Gotland’s assets according to the testers
- “Perfect fit”
The jury praises the overall for ease of dressing, and marks it masters the art of feeling spacious, yet being flexibly close to the body.
- “Very easy to keep clean”
The safe, non-fluorinated surface treatment lets you cut down on the washing and just quickly rinse or wipe the surface clean. This helps save time, water, and detergent.
- “Just the right warmth”
The warm, fluffy insulation bends with the child and keeps its fluff in washes. There is an extra layer of insulation at the seat, to ensure sitting in the sledge or snow will be fun for longer.
- “Amazingly waterproof”
The safe, fluorocarbon-free waterproof membrane on the reverse of the fabric is breathable for comfort yet gives a reliable water column of 15,000 mm. With waterproof seams, this is more than enough for a toddler to splash around freely.
- ”Makes dressing a snowsuit a pleasure”
The elastic arm and leg ends are precisely tight enough, but not so tight you’d need to struggle when pulling them over mittens and boot shafts. The long zipper helps as well.
