Waterproof jacket

Postby Squidster » 16 Aug 2019, 6:35pm

Hi guys, I'm new to this forum so my first post is regarding my 4yr old and 7yr old daughters who are needing warm waterproof jackets for going back to school and nursery so any advice would be much appreciated :).

Hello. I'm surprised you haven't had a response.
Unfortunately I'm no help whatsoever as I don't have children. I would however suggest you look at what's available in outdoor shops. It's coming to the end of season so you might be able to pick up reasonable quality waterproof jackets.

I don't as a rule recommend Go Outdoors but on this occasion they might have something to offer.

My colleagues swear by the ones occasionally produced by Lidl

Kids do not need the high performance of breathable in the context of the Nursery or School run, and as they are likely to get damaged, lost or grown out of quickly, the economy option is not a bad one.

An alternative at the moment is Milliets they are clearing a lot of their stock, at reduced prices.
