Winter is coming, which means the kids will find even more ways to get cold, wet and muddy! With even more opportunity for the dangerous combination of wet, cold and muddy kids, check out our top picks from our ever-expanding range of outdoor clothing and equipment for kids that will help keep them warm, dry, or might just come in useful this winter!
The North Face Evolution Triclimate
Available for both boys and girls, the Evolution Triclimate from The North Face is quite possibly the most versatile kids jacket on the market.
This 3-in-1 style jacket has a fully waterproof and seam-sealed outer HyVent 2L “shell” for protection against the heaviest rain and is equipped with a fitted hood. Underneath that is a warm, polyester zip-in fleece insulation layer, providing extra warmth for the cold winter weather, harnessing the principles of the clothing layering system.
The jacket can be worn in three different configurations; outer shell jacket only, fleece only for those more mild days, or both together for full protection, hence the 3-in-1 name. Triclimate Jackets are very popular with our customers. If your child needs a jacket for the winter, this should be a top consideration.
Osprey Youth Koby 20 Rucksack
When it comes to rucksacks and travel bags Osprey are, in our opinion, the leading brand. Responsible for many iconic and best selling rucksack models for adults (such as the Talon, Exos and Sojourn), they have taken their craft to kids bags too: The Koby 20 is the result of this.
As the name suggests, the Koby is a 20 litre capacity pack with space for storage of important school items such as text books, stationary and your PE kit! Descibed as an “adult city bag but in miniature”, it’s a simple, elegant look based on years of rucksack making experience using the most durable, but light weight materials possible.
Features include a scratch-free sunglasses and electronics pocket, stretch front & side pockets, reflective graphics, grab handles, internal hydration sleeve, key attachment clip, LED bike light attachment point. All together, this makes for a great quality children’s rucksack for all sorts of adventures from hiking to school to bike rides.
The North Face Boys Chilkat Lace Boots
The Chilkat boots provide sturdy, waterproof and surefooted performance for kids thanks to excellent traction from their TNF Winter Grip outsoles and use of other quality materials.
A seam sealed, waterproof pig suede upper will keep the rain at bay and feet dry. Not only that, but the Chilkats will insulate and protect thanks to the 200g of Heatseeker thermally efficient insulation, and a fleece lining inside, meaning feet will be warm too!
Osprey Poco Baby Carrier
Have a little one who requires a bit of help getting around? The Osprey Poco Baby Carrier is the ideal tool to transport your loved one around the green fields of a festival in comfort and safety.
The Poco supports a hydration bladder and has a lightweight and sturdy aluminium frame for an easy carry. The mesh material encourages ventilation, keeping you and baby cool, while the seat is adjustable up and down for optimal fit and balance.
It’s also folds away easily for storage and travel and can be combined with a separate sunshade to protect against excessive sun exposure.
Last, but not least, there’s a removable drool pad (for the baby, of course) – very handy!
