The main complaints about other models (with the exception of Reima) are a cumbersome look and discomfort when you wear: the cap either falls over your eyes, or opens the eye when you turn your head.
Reviews: negative moments
The main drawback, according to consumers, is the price of the product. It is impossible to buy cheaper helmets Kivat 1500 rubles. But remember: an elaborate system of protecting the baby from hypothermia and overheating ensures that the child will be less likely to get sick with colds. This will provide significant savings on medications. In addition, the product will last a few seasons. Among my customers using a hat for the baby for 3-4 years, indicated only one negative point – light warp knitted products in the area of the chin.
It is believed that for the harsh Russian winter, need warmer hats using fur or knit in two layers. Finnish caps are suitable only for European countries. In fact, there's nothing worse than overheating of the head and neck of the child, where are the major arteries and veins. The vessels dilate, leading to an additional flow of blood. Its outflow from the extremities and internal organs leads to cooling other parts of the body, which is extremely harmful for the baby. An indication that the head cold is back. Parents can always check the protective properties of the cap.
Among consumers there are those who have ruined the product, not providing proper care. Often it is washable at high temperatures, after which the cap was child small. On the label of each model are detailed instructions on how to care for hats.
As soon as the baby begins to walk, parents are thinking about a hat for the winter. Many still rely on hoods that prevent kids to be active and impede movement. Hat "Kivate" – a great alternative chosen by more and more Russian families.
The model came from a mod. The sports industry has long used balaclavas for climbers and mountain tourists, as the most convenient headwear in both form and quality of the material. Tested on athletes, it will approach the child during the walks in the winter frosty day.
