Winner of an award already this year, the new ‘Uggla’ coat from Kozi Kidz is put to a real world test. Will it live up to the Kozi Kidz reputation with a real kid using it?
Kozi Kidz new Uggla gets a good test. Is it another fabulous kid’s coat from Kozi Kidz?
This year Kozi Kidz have brought out a new rain and wind jacket called the Uggla. (It means ‘Owl’ in Swedish.)
We’ve been very impressed with the Kozi Kidz Norfolk set. It’s kept our little one dry and clean through loads of outdoor adventures – and it’s still in good condition. Just throw it in the washing machine, and it comes up like new.
So does this new Uggla live up to expectations?
Well, it’s already won the Editor’s Choice in clothing for the Camping magazine.
The Uggla is made for kids between the height of 80-130cm. We think it’s great for kids of pre-schooler age, and possibly ‘reception year’ at school.
This time it wasn’t our little one (who’s grown so much this year – ‘little one’ is now getting relative!) using it, but our niece. She’s been using it for the last few months. Here’s a review of the Uggla from her Dad.
So Bella has used this over the past few months on and off.
Here are the PROs:
It is really well made, and the quality is great. There is loads of attention to detail.
With other coats, we have found that the zip when done up can scratch or become uncomfortable, where this coat is nicely tucked away and shielded with soft material.
It stands out too, with great colour, design, and rear reflectors. A lot of other Mums and children have commented on the coat.
It seems pretty windproof as well as waterproof and probably warmer than your average kid’s jacket and machine washable too!
The downsides of the coat are really as an everyday coat you’d want some pockets on it, although I can understand why there isn’t it would just increase cost and weaken the waterproof integrity of the coat.
The other is the hood is huge. Which could be a positive, but it did catch the wind, and when used in anger on a rainy day in town, Bella spent a lot of time pushing/holding it up to see where she was going. However, it is still a little on the large for her.
