warm wet weather gear for kids

We love to get out for a walk what ever the weather and Charlotte also has a forest school session at school once a week so this time of year we are in need of something warm and dry to wear.
We really needed a new rain coat for her and ended up in Millets finding this perfect 3 in 1 jacket by Peter Storm.
look at the lovely warm and bright coat
 It has a lovely furry cream inside jacket which is ditachable from the waterproof outer shell so it will do for most of the year round. She loves the very bright pink of it, it really is as bright as the pictures show and the snuggly warm jacket inside is great for keeping the cold out. It's got plenty of pockets, inside and out, and a good sized hood. There are clips and zips to hold the two jackets together and even a pocket and clip for an ipod and headphones.

Whilst browsing the store we spotted these water resistant fleece lined trousers, again by Peter Storm.
water resistant trousers
 Leggings just aren't warm enough and jeans aren't nice to wear when they get wet so these look ideal for exploring days. They are a bit boyish looking, combat trouser style. But I don't think Charlotte has picked up on that yet and is happy to wear them as they keep her warm.

fleece lining
 We haven't tried them in the rain yet to test how water resistant they are. The first time she wore them she let the bottom of the leg drag on the ground and the fleece lining adsorbed quite a bit of moisture, but most of the time they will be worn with wellington boots. The trousers have an adjustable elasticated waist which is excellent for my skinny girl.

Bring on the cold damp weather my girl is read to go.
