We recently was asked if we would like to review some waterproofs from Dry Kids. With the never ending rain at the moment and J just having another growth spurt it was an obvious yes please. Last year we were out no matter what the weather as the girls behave better when we are out running around, come rain or shine... if we have the correct clothes to keep us dry.
We were able to pick the colour we wanted for a trouser and jacket set. J chose a royal blue.
Due to her current growth spurt we went up a size to guarantee they would fit. She is a tall 6 year old so picked a 7-8. She has room to grow into them, although they do fit now too is she wears her wellys. I believe they fit true to size.
The jacket sleeves are elasticated to keep the cold and wet out, and the back has a vented panel with a mesh lining.
The hood can be tucked away into the collar to give the stiff collar look and keep the wind of the neck. The jacket also has a reflective strip along the back, as well as the dry kids logo on the front be reflective too.
When the hood is needed it can easily and quickly be un-tucked and kept in position by Velcro. The hood also has extra reflective stripes too.
So here it is... J is now all kitted out for the wet weather we are guaranteed to have. This trouser and jacket set is only £13.95 which is a real bargain. It does have a slight plastic feel inside the jacket but worn with a jumper underneath J is happy and it doesn't cause any stiffness to the clothes. I am still in shock at the price of both the jacket and trousers, I have paid much for just one of these item in the past.
If blue is not to your liking they also do the sets in red, raspberry and green.
Keep posted for puddle splashing this winter from us!
