Columbia Sportswear Canada: Kids Fleece Sweaters Only $20

When you think of Columbia, you probably think of warmth. I know I do, as my kids have had Columbia jackets and snowpants that have far outlasted any other brand I have gotten them. I’m sure that their other clothing, especially the outerwear, will perform just as well. This means that I’m in luck when I see that they have fleece sweaters for both boys and girls on for only $19.99, with regular prices of $39.99, essentially making them 50% off.

This is the perfect time to get your kids some fleece. While the sun might be shining and the humidex might be high, believe it or not, this won’t last for long. In fact, in Ontario, we are calling this Octogust because it has not been that warm anyway and most days remind me of warm-ish fall days. I’m ready for fleece on the cool evenings!

For only $19.99, I could pick my boys up this Steens mountain fleece. It has a number of reviews, which give it a 5-star rating. What’s great about fleece is that it is soft and cozy, plus it is warm and looks good. This review sums up this jacket:

My son is a very picky person when it comes to EVERYTHING! He just loves this jacket and so do I! It is so soft, warm and comfortable for him and the color is outstanding! I would highly recommend this jacket!

Another use for the fleece jacket is to use it as a liner under your winter jacket. I know my middle son would definitely appreciate this as he is tiny and layering keeps him the most warm. He can’t ever be too warm.

If you want to spend a little more at $29.99, regularly $39.99, check out the Steens mountain II fleece. It comes in a number of colours and looks like it might be the newer version of the one I just told you about.

The girl’s fleece is a little more at $22.49, regularly $49.99 and this Benton Springs printed fleece is pretty cute in two different colour choices.

Shipping is a flat rate of $7.

Columbia Sportswear Canada: Shimmer Me Jacket Only $75

Columbia Sportswear Canada: Shimmer Me Jacket Only $75

I recently saw something on Facebook that said winter is only like 120 days away or something like that. That means you really only have a few months to get your winter gear. While I have the air conditioning blasting here, I like to be prepared, especially when getting good deals on winter coats as they are one of my largest expenses when shopping for clothing for my children. Columbia Sportswear has a great deal on the Shimmer Me jacket in both the boy’s and girl’s styles, now only $74.99, with a regular price of $99.99.

I really love Columbia for outerwear. I find it really stands up to abuse and is warm enough to wear on the coldest of our Canadian winter days. With three boys to buy winter coats for, saving $25 a piece is a nice savings. I want to keep my boys as warm as can be considering they spend quite a bit of time outside in the winter either playing on the weekends or after school and at recess and during the walk to school.

This coat has a thermal reflective lining, which means that you’ll retain body heat but it allows your body to breathe (so you don’t sweat). It also repels and sheds water and stains so it won’t matter how wet or cold the weather. There is also an adjustable storm hood, zippered hand pockets and an interior pocket.

In price comparing, I found the Shimmer Me jacket for kids at Sport Chek for $99. Other than that, I couldn’t find it at other Canadian retailers.

For the girls, the pattern I found this jacket on sale is the purple gingham, which I love as it is feminine but not too “pretty”. The boy’s style is in the bright red, which I also love. My boys look so good in red and it is a colour that you don’t see a lot of boys in, so they will know their jacket right off the hook easily.

For babies, the Shimmer Me bunting is also on sale, from $79.99, down to $59.99.

If those coats don’t meet your fancy, there are quite a few others on sale. I also love Columbia’s snow pants and these Whirlinator pants even have adjustable cuffs for when your child grows 3 inches over Christmas. These are now only $89.99, from $119.99. For the girls, they have the Whirli Diva pants for the same price.

Shipping is a flat rate of $7, no matter what you buy, so you might as well get everything you need in one order.
