When it’s cold outside, celebs like Matt Damon, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Sacha Baron Cohen love to get to cozy in Canada Goose — a 50-year-old Canadian-based manufacturer known for its stylish and super-warm outerwear.

Now they (and you!) can bundle up the tots in them too. The company’s new youth collection includes everything from mini parkas to baby snow suits that range from $250 to $355.

The high-end coats are definitely on the pricey side, but the winter-weather features — elasticized rib-knit cuffs, fleece-lined pockets, high-wind resistant hood, storm flap, velcro zipper flap — are well worth the splurge, especially if you know you can hand it down.

Added bonus: Canada Goose adheres to responsible fur and down policies to maintain humane treatment of animals in the production of all their coats.
