Zio Sport active wear for kids displayed their stylish line of clothing for kids at the Outdoor Retailer tradeshow this past January in Salt Lake City, Utah. Zio Sport caters to your energetic, outdoorsy child. Kid’s active wear is essential to those of us that share our passion for the outdoors with our children. Although there are brands out there that make active wear for kids, they don’t necessarily aim it towards the child as a consumer. What is mostly offered is an adult version of active wear miniaturized into clothing for kids. What makes Zio Sport so different from others? Zio active wear is actually kid tested and approved by kids as well.
Zio Sport is a family-owned company started by a grandmother and two mothers. These three individuals weren’t seeing much active wear for kids that were high in quality and style. Just because they’re kids doesn’t mean they don’t want to be stylish and protected from elements just as much as adults do. Zio Sport encourages a healthy lifestyle with the simple idea that kids who are comfortable play longer. The clothing is actually approved by the kids, meaning the fabric, style, and color. Children are very involved with the development of this great line of clothing.
The Zio Half Zip Pullover and Zio Boys Utility Shorts have been paraglided in, climbed, hiked, and biked in by my 8-year-old son. These two pieces of clothing are some of his absolute favorite clothes to wear while he is engaged in his outdoor ventures.
The Zio Boys Utility Shorts are 86% nylon and 14% spandex with a 4-way stretch. There are side cargo pockets, and a snap and zipper front with inside Zio logo drawstring. According to my son, they are “super comfortable and very cool looking.” He would wear them everyday if he could. He is an extremely active boy, and he definitely needs something durable and comfortable to wear when he’s outdoors. These shorts have been through hikes in Arches National Park in Moab, Utah, climbed in along the little Red Rock wall in Draper, Utah, and involved in so many other adventures.
The Zio Half Zip Pullover was the perfect item of clothing for a cooler morning while paragliding on the Point of the Mountain in Draper, Utah. The first thing my son grabbed when I told him it’d be a little cooler in the air was his Zio Half Zip Pullover. This 100% ZioPoly textured knit performance pullover kept him warm as he flew through the clear blue skies of Utah.
Zio Sport active wear is highly recommended for your kids. They’ll love the styles, colors and feel of the clothing that this fantastic line offers just for them. And as the famous Kix cereal line goes with a little addition, “Kid tested, mother and kid approved.”
