Autumn is most definitely upon us and I feel rather bittersweet about this. On the one hand, I love autumn and getting snuggled up in chunky knits and boots, but on the other hand, as a parent, it’s so much easier to survive the day when the weather is good. Autumn is not known for its good weather… Thankfully, the lovely folk at Polarn O. Pyret have come to the rescue to help us get out and about, no matter what the weather – and a few weeks ago (during the heatwave!) they sent H-Bear this absolutely divine yellow shell baby jacket from their outerwear collection.
I am a huge fan of yellow, and if I could have the entire family in yellow jackets I would (do you think that would be going too far?!), but thus far, H-Bear is the only family member to own such a garment. And what a garment!
The coat is water resistant up to 10,000mm, and is fully waterproof and windproof with tapered seams. It’s ideal for little people who want to be on the go, no matter what the weather!
It’s lightweight, and very flexible, so absolutely perfect for visits to the park, or even just garden explorations.
The light reflectors on the coat would be so useful for school runs on grey days, or later in the afternoon in deepest darkest winter.
The coat is made from very durable fabric – great for toddlers who love to hide in bushes, adventure in playgrounds and climb! With pre-bent sleeves, adjustable hem and sleeves, H-Bear won’t be hindered by this coat as he explores. The zipped chest pocket is also ideal for keeping treasures safe.
At almost 15 months, H-Bear wears size 12-18 months in these photos, so sizing is on the larger side! I’m fine with that though, as it just means that the coat will last even longer.
My favourite feature is the adjustable hood, which also detaches. It’s such a fantastic idea, and means that it will prevent the hood falling in H-Bear’s face and irritating him.
The coat can be used in conjunction with the Polarn O. Pyret fleece jacket; the fleece just clips in to make it super warm and cosy.
The Shell Baby Jacket costs £55 and can be found on the Polarn O. Pyret website.
