There is a great selection of outdoor gear for adults, and over recent years this has expanded to the kid’s range. It’s great that companies are using their technologies for kids outdoor wear.

If we want to get kids outdoors, they need to be dressed appropriately, so they can enjoy the activity comfortably and want to do it again.

BerghausTesting out the Berghous Rannoch Kids Jacket have recently launched a new outdoor range for kids, which you can get at Blacks or Millets. We picked out the Rannoch Jacket to try, as it looked a simple and practical jacket for everyday adventures.

Berghaus Rannoch Boys Jacket Details

Our experience with the Berghaus Rannoch

We took the jacket out on one of our caravan challenges for a day out at Blenheim Palace.

Ready for outdoor adventures

The jacket was a good fit, true to size and looked smart. Little adventurers like to look stylish, and Tom was happy to wear the jacket. The dark colour is a suitable colour for outdoor children, as Tom attracts dirt like a magnet so less visible to see all the muck collected.

The easy-to-open lower pockets were a good size, enough room for gloves and any little treasures picked up along the way. The chest pocket is a useful addition too.

The red trim on the zips adds a nice touch and a flash of bright colour.

A great kids coat

The chin guard prevented the zip rubbing on his chin, as this jacket pulls up quite high for warmth.

It was bitterly cold at Blenheim Palace, and Tom never complained that he was cold as the insulation kept him warm and snug. The hood on the jacket is a decent size and fitted Tom’s head well shielding him from the blustery wind.

Tom is a bit of a wild child always on the go, so when we look for outdoor clothes for him, we want something that isn’t going to restrict movement and allow him to explore and discover. The Rannoch allows this as it’s not bulky or restricting to wear.

Great for active kids

Verdict

I think the simple style is what makes this jacket suitable for children. It takes care of the essentials you need for outdoor play – waterproof, warmth and durability.

  1. Adult coat technology for kids.
  2. Zipped pockets with toggles for easy opening and closing.
  3. Chin zip guard to make it more comfortable when zipped up.
  4. A warm coat but still with a good range of movement.
  5. Makes him look and feel the part.

The Rannoch jacket more expensive than normal high-street kids coats, but you do get a jacket that is going to last and see your child through lots of adventures. Handing down the jacket to siblings might be another way to justify the expensive.
