As we slowly move from winter to spring and the days deliver weather for all seasons, an essential for all parents is good outerwear. Whether it’s rain, wind, snow or sun, this time of year can be unpredictable often resulting in a clamber for clothing that can withstand the day.
Polarn O. Pyret (or P.O.P for short) is a sustainable clothing brand that provides outerwear that will cut it whatever the weather. While the brand produce lots of essential clothing items for children and even some nightwear for adults, they’re leading the market with outdoor clothing and the range continues to grow each season to offer even more fantastic options.
We recently got our hands on the Kids Waterproof Shell Jacket, a 100% waterproof everyday coat that has all the flexibility for play. Quite a technical jacket, like many of their products they’re carefully designed and crafted with consideration for practical protection elements, but also considerate to the needs of a child.
The fabric is not only waterproof but also protects against strong winds to live up to its claim that it can withstand torrential weathers. If you’re a big fan of the great outdoors whatever the weather then the features to this jacket highlight good protection and durability – fully taped seams, abrasion resistant and water repellent.
Key for optimal protection is the fit, and this jacket has lots of flexible features for a really close fitting to protect your child such as detachable hood, storm flaps and chin guards.
Because every child is shaped and sized different, added features such as the adjustable hem and cuffs support that good fit and can be altered as your child grows.
While the full roster of features can make this sound like a bulky, heavy coat, it’s actually very lightweight and breathable that moves easily with your child. This means it’s good for regular play and activity and the thin design makes it great for layering. P.O.P. sell a fleece and jacket that you can attach to give it that chunky cosiness for additional warmth, or you can simply build your own layers depending on when and how you use the jacket.
We love the green colourway, a great earthy, sage colour that isn’t overly common when it comes to jacket colours. If that’s not enough to whet your appetite, new for SS21 the collection features even more vibrant colours with some seasonal prints
The second item we managed to get our hands on was the Kids Waterproof Padded Overall, an all-in-one suit ideal for explorative toddlers.
Do away with the separate coats, trousers, thick socks etc, this is the solution to quickly and successfully keep little ones safe and warm in the winter weather.
With the 100% waterproof guarantee ticked off, this fashion-forward coat zips over day-to-day clothing to provide an effective insulated layer of protection.
In addition to all of the fab features found with the Kids Waterproof Shell Jacket, this coat features a patented insulated fleece lining for additional comfort and moderation of heat.
With it being a full suit, the design elements are slightly different with attention to the waist and cuffs for a snug fit, and ankle cuffs to keep everything in place.
Design wise, your little one will have all the appeal of a cute snow bunny!
The quality of both items is some of the best of any children’s brand we have seen. The products are made to last, from the technologies invested into the materials and careful crafting of each item. This means they are ideal to hand down to younger siblings or friends with the knowledge they will retain their premium quality features for years to come. Every P.O.P. item is also made from recycled fibres adding to their sturdy line up of eco credentials.
