The weather here is still around 20°C and it seems strange thinking about winter coats, however, the nights are drawing in fast and it won’t be long before the kids need a couple of extra layers of clothing to keep them warm.
We were sent the Storm Explorer Jacket from Muddy Puddles to review that will keep the kids warm and dry whatever the weather.
The unisex jacket comes in navy with a striking red warm super soft zip out fleece. The outer is 100% waterproof and when the fleece is removed it becomes a lightweight rain jacket and the fleece can be worn on its own. As well as the zip feature, the fleece also attaches to the back of the jacket by the hood and on each sleeve to keep it in place.
The Storm Explorer Jacket uses the Muddy Puddles Puddle tec 2 technology and is 10,000mm waterproof and 3000g/m2 breathable. It also has fully taped seams and storm flap that prevents any biting winds or rain getting through the fabric, and is well insulated with the zip in or out 285gsm Hi-loft fleece.
The hood and the fur trim can both be removed and the waist is adjustable enabling different looks for boys and girls, can be tightened to improve performance in different weather conditions like snow and features durable YKK zips and reflective details for added visibility on dark and dreary days.
I actually ordered this jacket for Sebastian (age 3), but have found it comes up large and fits Eliza (5) perfectly. The fact that it is unisex is perfect as it means it can be handed down when she grows out of it.
Eliza’s favourite part of the jacket is the fleece lining as it is so soft she just wants to stroke it. I am looking forward to testing it in some wet weather to see if keeps the kids dry.
Whilst I am not wishing this lovely weather away just yet, I am looking forward to seeing how the jacket fairs when tested in our great British weather. But for now, I love the features and design of the coat and know it will be a wardrobe staple for Autumn and Winter.
