This gorgeous little winter coat in 2 or 3 tones, with cheeky contrasting details, is fully waterproof and windproof, and lightly padded. Designed to cope with harsh Scandinavian winters it makes an ideal ski jacket - check out our matching ski trousers in the same fabrics - but it's also an ideal everyday coat throughout the UK winter. All seams are taped to improve ventilation and ensure that the wearer never feels sweaty. The coat is light enough to be very comfortable over a school uniform or similar layers, and offers plenty of room for further warm layers underneath when needed. For skiing, we would suggest packing a microfleece jacket as well as some thermal underwear and you'll be ready to go!
Bright colours and reflective stripes ensure visibility, adding a welcome safety feature on the walk home from school or on the ski slopes. The hood is detachable and 2-way adjustable. The hem is adjustable by toggles and the outer sleeve openings by velcro straps. The soft, elasticated inner cuffs protect little wrists from snow and sleet, with cool thumb grips to keep them in place, ensuring that the coat perfectly follows its wearer's movements. Special loops inside the cuffs help keep gloves safe. A secret seam inside the sleeve lining allows the sleeves to grow a whole size when needed, making sure that the coat lasts for several seasons - after which it can be handed down to a younger child, as the durable fabrics will ensure that it stays like new for many years.
