I was first introduced to Polarn O.Pyret pronounced Pole Arn oh peer et which means “Buddy and the Little One” in Swedish or PO.P for short, when themummyblogger sent me some of Roo’s clothes that she had outgrown. I was instantly struck by the high quality and funky colours.
When PO.P contacted me and asked if I would like to review something from their range I was ecstatic and chose this fabulous Puffer Jacket for Isaac.
I chose age 3-4 (104cm) as although Isaac is 4, he is small for his age and I was very excited when it arrived the next day!
To say I am impressed is an understatement!
The jacket is gorgeous, it is colourful and bright but lightweight with a cosy down filling. The hood is removable and adjustable for that perfect fit and Isaac adores the thumb grip cuffs.
The fabric is breathable yet dirt and water repellent and wind resistant, the bottom hem is adjustable too, which keeps out the rain, wind and snow. There are also reflective strips on the front and back of the jacket to ensure he can be seen clearly now the nights are drawing in.
As you can see from the photograph, the jacket is more than big enough, and if and when he does grow out of it, I can hand it onto Eliza as the colour is unisex. If, however, you did wish to sell on once outgrown, I have seen on eBay that they hold their value very well too.
Boys, will be boys however, and the jacket has had to go through the wash already. It can be washed at 40 degrees and I am happy to report that it still looks as good as new and I could wash and dry it with ease!
Priced at £65, it is an expensive jacket, however it is an investment that I would willingly make, especially as our winters appear to be getting colder. If you are off on a ski trip or lucky enough to be visiting Lapland this winter, then they also sell co-ordinating winter trousers and gorgeous fleece jackets to keep you even warmer.
PO.P clothing starts from newborn up to the age of 12 and I have been that impressed by the jacket, that I have already purchased his big brother Kian the Padded Child Coat as he didn’t want the same one as his brother!!
I am just disappointed that I already have Eliza’s for this year, but I did buy her a winter hat so she wouldn’t feel left out!
You can find PO.P on facebook and twitter if you want to see more of their funky designs and keep up with news and current offers. They are already saved in my favourites bar!
