Great for splashing in the mud!

If you are spending time outdoors you want to get your kids clothes that are up to the job.

With the right clothes, even a ‘bad weather day’ can be salvageable.

With the right clothes, even a ‘muddy day’ needn’t mean hours of washing 😀

What to look for in an outdoor coat for kids

So there are a number of things to look for when buying an outdoor coat:

  • Waterproof (obviously)
  • Taped seams, to avoid leaks, including zipped pockets and storm flaps to avoid water getting in there too.
  • Adjustments such as drawstrings and elasticated or sealable cuffs to help keep the wind out.

There are also a number of other things to look for to make your coat even better:

  • Breathable, ideally. This makes a waterproof coat a lot more comfortable.
  • A fleecy collar so that the material doesn’t rub your chin and neck.
  • And an adjustable hood for a good fit (don’t you just hate it when the hoods on coats just flop around and cover your eyes!)

If you are buying for kids then there are a few extra things to look for:

  • Tough material
  • Washable

There’s one brand of outdoor kids clothing that really stands out on delivering: Kozi Kidz

Kozi Kidz Norfolk Set

The Kozi Kidz Norfolk Set

The Kozi Kidz Norfolk jacket meets all of the above. It is waterproof up to 5000mm (that’s a lot more than many tents that are sold!).

We got our hands on their Norfolk Jacket and Trousers, and not only did they meet everything you need in a coat, but they also had great design features such as the built in reflectors, and of course, the name label for school. The toggle on the pocket zips make them much easier to open with gloves on. The hood is detachable, which is a great safety feature.

The Norfolk set is part of the Kozi Kidz wind and rain waterproof range, so this coat doesn’t have a thick lining – but that’s not a problem if you layer correctly. (See our post on layering your kids clothes).

This is not only a good outdoor coat, but also great for school and everyday use.

Kozi Kidz Norfolk Trousers

As well as a Norfolk Jacket you can also get some over trousers.

These are built to the same high standard, and also come with built-in reflectors.

Unlike your regular over-trousers, the Kozi Kidz Norfolk trousers come with braces to hold them up, and straps to go under their heel, keeping the trousers firmly in place, no matter how active their play gets. These straps are removable if you didn’t want to use them.

An essential bit of kit – especially when it’s wet, muddy, or even in the snow!

They’ve already gone through the washing machine and come out like new.
