Halo's Technical Comfort Clothing: Warm Or Cool? How Does It Know?
Halo, the people who brought us the indispensable Sleep Sack, has a new line of super-high-tech baby clothes featuring Coolmax fabric. They call it their Technical Comfort System. You know the magical stuff hikers use as an underlayer? It wicks away moisture, dries quickly and keeps you warm or cool, plus it has an SPF of 30! Halo offers baby-sized coveralls, pants, shirts, hats and bodysuits ($8-23) in nine colors that can be worn alone or as an underlayer.
My 8-month-old son Egan really looks so cute in the red two-piece pants and top ($23) we tried. They are tag-free and the pants have a soft, elastic waistband so there’s nothing scratchy to be found. The fabric is silky and has no chemicals that might irritate Baby.
I think this invention’s pretty brilliant and I wish I had it when we took a long trip to two very different climates. They pack ultra small so they’d be ideal to carry on a flight in case of a messy wardrobe crisis. (The 12-mos-size pants and top roll up to about the size of a baseball.)
Once again, this baby’s gear is surpassing his parents’ current technology. I guess we should get used to it.
