5 important functionalities

Finding the perfect outerwear can be difficult with a lot of technical information to consider.

That's why we help you focus on the 5 most important outerwear qualities:

 

Waterproof - Breathable - Windproof - Warmth - Durability

 

Whether it's puddles as deep as oceans, mud as slippery as soap, rain as persistent as parents,

or wind as strong as horses, our technical outerwear collection is designed to withstand it all.

 

#1 Waterproof

Waterproofness prevents water from entering and keeps your child warm and dry while at play.

All our technical outerwear is waterproof from 3000 - 10,000 mm - and is an absolute must in your child's wardrobe for those inevitable rainy days.

 

3,000 mm is ideal for changing weather with occasional showers.

5,000 mm is for stronger occasional showers and unstable weather

8,000 mm is for long-time heavy rain and sitting on wet surfaces.

10,000 mm is for all-day pouring rain and staying out in more extreme weather conditions.

 

Look for the waterproof icon if you have a rain or snow-defying child because staying dry is essential for a fun outdoor experience.

Psst.. Did you know that 3000 mm waterproof outerwear is actually perfectly adequate for most children's daily needs?

Or that all our waterproof outerwear styles are PFC-free, so your child is protected from toxic chemicals.

 

#2 Breathable

No matter the weather, breathable outerwear is important for your child's comfort and ideal for any kind of active outdoor activity - from skiing on the slopes to playing in kindergarten.
