I decided on the Puddleflex Insulated jacket for my five-year-old. He loves bright colors so we picked the yellow, It also comes in navy and red but there is something I’ve always loved about yellow raincoats.
The first thing I noticed about the coat was the quality, the lining was fleecy all the way through to the hood and insulated meaning it would keep them warm. I’ve found over the years that raincoats can be really cold and ridged but this coat is durable and when I put it on my son, he was able to run and move freely in it due to the soft material.
Another important feature for me was the ribbed storm cuff which stops the cold wind getting in the coat. We were able to tuck gloves in comfortably and securely knowing he was nice and snug in the snow.
I love the fact it has double ended zip for things like toilet trips! Makes it so much easier not having to undress him! My son loved the bright color of the coat and knowing he would be warm and dry (as it’s complete waterproof 10,000mm) is exactly what every parent wants.
The coat is a great length and protects all the way to just above the knee so when paired with wellies provided a great barrier against the wet weather. My son was able to sit down in the snow and not get wet, perfect as we had an hour drive home, wet bums aren’t comfortable!
The coat comes in ages 18-24 all the way up to 11-12 years. I love to dress my boys the same so once the little one is 18 months, I’ll be buying him a matching raincoat as I’ve been so impressed with this one. After my son had been rolling down the hills in the snow the coat was a bit muddy, but I was able to wipe it down easily, I know that in rainy weather it will get worse and I’ll be able to put it in the washing machine which for a waterproof coat is fantastic!
This coat is perfect for the snow in the winter or rainy days in the spring, definitely multi-seasonal, we will be keeping it out for those crisp spring morning walks. Muddy Puddles also give a one-year guarantee with all their range!
