There’s just no escaping it now; it’s come to that time of the year where we’re putting away our t-shirts and shorts and bringing out the waterproofs and thick socks. It may be the time where you’re thinking about purchasing coats for the family. I know in our house it’s time to buy new coats what with a toddler who won’t stop growing and a new addition to shop for. Dylan is simple to cater for with a thick pram suit as he’s usually under a rain cover. The toddler is much different; he needs an actual coat which will cater for both this Autumn & upcoming Winter weather. This is where kids jackets over on M & M Direct come into play. We were offered the choice of reviewing a coat for Oli, of course saving pennies and with the chance to let you guys know about them – we took them up on that offer.
I picked out the Helly Hansen Infant Boys Oslo Helly Tech Jacket in black for him. I picked this one out of the Helly Hansen Kids jacket range because I thought it was the ideal jacket to protect him from both the wind and the rain.The first great thing is, of course, the fantastic price – £19.99!!! That’s just under £20 for a coat which will last right until your little one grows out of it. The recommend retail price is £54.99! Saving £35 on a top brand coat.
It has a detachable hood though for us it’s staying on, this weather just seems so unpredictable at the moment it’s better not to get caught short in the rain. I like to think the velcro as well as the zip fastening is an extra security feature which stops them from trying to undo the coat too quickly. Though I seem to have a child who has grown since last year and now understands the need to keep warm by wearing his coat – he even wears hats now too!
