Kids suits come in all shapes and sizes. All our kids suit are glued and blindstitched. they are a minimum of 4/3 in thickness and lots of the smaller ones are custom made 5/3's. Cheap unglued suits found in drugstores and Costco are never glued. they are constructed to save money not keep you warm...try a good suit you will feel the differance. Happy kids equal longer sessions and no drama...a real vacation.
