Probably, you have often met on the street a child,at first glance, dressed out of season: his jacket and panties seem excessively thin, while absolutely not looking frozen. On the contrary, unlike the majority of children wrapped in multi-layered clothes, he happily rushes around the site, because nothing restricts the freedom of his movements. His mother knows that the heat-shielding qualities do not depend on the thickness of the insulation, but are determined by the type and quality of his own and the quality of the fabrics from which the clothes are sewn. In this article we will tell you what kind of insulation are used for sewing children's demi-season and winter clothes. How they differ and what they are capable of. If you do not want to continue to be surprised at the children in question, read on.

Natural heaters

These include duck, eider and swan fluff, as well as wool.


Features excellent heat-savingability, pleasant to the touch and easy. True down products are filled with eiderdown, in other cases, the structure of the heater always includes a feather. It is required that the filler hold the volume, and not get lost in the lumps. The percentage of feather / feather is 60/40 to 80/20 percent. To ensure that the fibers do not "climb" outward, all the seams of the product are subjected to special treatment.

Down jackets with gag filler - the warmest. They are excellent for walking in severe frosts to -35/40 degrees. There are no fundamental differences between duck and goose varieties.

For information: Clothes for fluff are ideal if youlive in a severe cold climate, where dry air prevails. In wet winters, a heater creates a "greenhouse effect" when the child sweats heavily, but moisture is not discharged outside. Because of this, he either overheats or gets cold.

A quality winter jacket for a boy orthe girl, full of down, will last at least 10 years. However, with regard to children's things, this advantage is indirect, because most of the children "grow up" from their clothes in 1-2 seasons. Speaking about the shortcomings of fluff, you can not fail to mention the special washing conditions ... The fact is that down products require particularly delicate conditions. Some of them are only subject to dry cleaning. And the complexity warns you and at the stage of drying - fluff must be regularly beaten, so that it is evenly distributed among the cells. Otherwise, he will "get lost" in someone, and the down jacket will become unusable.


Products with this filler are also calleddown jackets, albeit conditionally. They perfectly keep the heat and cost two or even three times cheaper than the truly downy analogs. On the durability of the same wool in general there are no competitors - a heater of it retains properties for 15-20 years. However, the biggest negative is woolen winter sets in their big weight, because of which children are simply uncomfortable and uncomfortable in them. In addition, woolen clothes dry very long after washing, and also sit down a little.

For information: The inactive children are supercooled much faster than those who already know the children's slides and playgrounds. therefore overalls-transformer for newborns with a sheepskin insulation is an excellent option. If your child does not yet know how to walk - just consider this filler.

Synthetic heaters

As you already knew, natural insulationhave some unpleasant disadvantages, although they are warm. Therefore, he was replaced by synthetic ones. Most often, manufacturers designate them with the word "polyester", without bothering to decipher. Meanwhile, there are several types of insulation type of "polyester".


Of course, everyone heard about him, because hefirst came to replace fluff and wool. These are polyester fibers bonded together by thermal bonding. This material does not cause allergies, is environmentally friendly, durable and very light. BUT! It is not suitable for a frosty winter; at an air temperature below -10 degrees already does not keep the heat inside the clothes. On sale you can find things with insulation of 300-400 gr. per square meter, which, according to the manufacturers, are suitable for wearing at temperatures up to -25. But on the assurances of many mothers - this information is untrue. In addition, these products are very bulky and bulky, because of what are uncomfortable.

Hollofiber (and other "faybers")

These heaters consist of fibers similar tosprings with cavities inside. Excellent shape and excellent "experience" a lot of washing. The structure of holofayber resembles a sintepon, but the fundamental difference is that the latter has filled fibers. Hollowness gives this insulation excellent thermal insulation qualities, and also provides protection against "caking". Be sure that after storage in a vacuum bag, the winter kit from the holofiber will take its original shape.

The recommended temperature regime is -5 to -25 degrees. And the material does not absorb moisture, is absolutely non-toxic and very democratic in price.


Heat insulation consisting of thermo-sealed fibers, shaped like balls with cavities inside. On the performance level it is completely analogous to the holo-fiber.


One of the best synthetic insulation,created ever. Translated from English means "subtle warming" and fully justifies this phrase. Tinsulate is an artificial analogue of down, surpassing it in terms of heat-shielding properties, but lacking the disadvantages of natural material. It is easily washed in a conventional typewriter, does not dampen, does not "get lost" and keeps the shape perfectly. It is almost 2 times warmer than the best fluff; has the ability to retain air molecules inside the fibers. He does not shackle the movements and excels the sweat perfectly if the child has overheated. The only drawback of the tinsuleit is the relatively high price.

For information: Tinsuleit can not be cheap, because its production is quite costly. Therefore, do not trust unscrupulous sellers who, at the price of a sintepona, offer you a tinsuleit.

In order to fully experience all the advantages of insulating materials of any kind - pay attention to the quality of the material of the outer / inner layer of clothing and the poddevu.
