We can’t get enough of our new Explorer Parka Jacket. Designed to withstand the rough and tumble of outdoor play, super-waterproof, school-ready and toasty warm even in minus temperatures, it’s on top of our children’s autumn-winter essentials list.
We know finding the perfect jacket for rainy and chilly days is not easy. We always design our outerwear to be reliable and practical with plenty of tech features but we never forget to make them great looking for children (and mums) to love! Our parka jacket has been created with young, bright explorers and their outdoor adventures in mind.We’d like to give our readers a helping hand to pick the perfect jacket for your little ones that’s great for school and all kinds of outdoor adventures. That’s why we’ve caught up with Suky, our Buying Director and Muddy Mum to talk about the Parka Jacket and its benefits. Suky was involved in designing our AW20 collection. She’s also a mum of two little explorers aged 6 and 2 who can’t help but have fun outdoors come rain or shine. We couldn’t think of a better person to ask to review the jacket. Here’s why Suky loves and recommends our new Explorer Parka Jacket: “Our Explorer Parka Jacket is the ideal school jacket and toasty winter coat – the perfect children’s waterproof coat for the autumn/winter season. It's super stylish, but unlike high street alternatives it's durable, fully waterproof and breathable. Great for the colder winter months without having to add too many layers underneath. Clever details such as the removable hood, storm placket and ribbed storm cuffs mean it is very protective against the wind and rain. It is reassuring to know that your little one will stay dry, comfortable and is ready for the rough and tumble of the playground! My son loves the soft sherpa lining, as he finds it cosy and warm for the chilly early starts. He also likes the reflective details as they look super cool on the dark walk home. The jacket is waterproof to 10,000mm which means it is very waterproof for all-day outside play in moderate to heavy rain, super protective against the wind and perfect for outdoor adventures. The cosy sherpa fleece lining of the hood and body and the padding makes the jacket extra warm for blustery days outside. We have added a practical storm flap opening for maximum protection against the rain. The jacket is crafted from high-quality tough fabric and will withstand the rigours of active play. It’s also easy to care for and machine washable – so handy! The new Parka jacket will surely be our ultimate companion to this year’s muddy adventures from late summer all the way to winter. My little explorer has the red colourway and he cannot get enough of it! I know for certain that this jacket will keep him dry and warm whatever the weather.”
Here’s what one of our lovely customers has to say about the jacket: “I bought the bright red colour waterproof winter coat for my son and it was excellent. It kept him dry and very cosy too.”Click here to buy the jacket. Both colours are lovely and versatile – will you go with navy or red? That’s a tricky one!
