The Best Rainwear Gear for Kids

Best Waterproof Jackets

Upbeat

Upbeat kids’ waterproof parka jacket is perfect for puddle jumping in the rain. With a waterproof rating of 5000mm and a performance rating of TP50, it’s bound to keep your child upbeat for a fun filled day under the clouds. Featuring Tres-Shield® technology and ColdHeat insulation, the jacket has been developed for bad weather situations. Waterproof and windproof, with taped seams, this performance fabric is used to produce a range of great value outerwear. Supple and durable, functional coatings and surface treatments help repel water and wind, keeping you comfortable. ColdHeat is lightweight, durable and soft with lofted fibres that hold in heat generated by your body, giving you maximum freedom of movement allowing you to stay comfortable in the most arctic of conditions.

The jacket is padded with a Sherpa fleece lining for enhanced comfort and support with adjustable cuffs, hook and loop fastenings and adjustable hem drawcord. Two lower envelope pockets and a contrasting zip pocket have been added for the safe storage of valuables and a detachable button-off hood with a removable faux fur trim for weather-dependent adjustments.

Trespass Top Tip – We would recommend that the hood comes off when getting muddy so that less washing is involved for you afterwards.

Freebored

Freebored kids’ ski jacket is waterproof, breathable and windproof with a waterproof rating of 5000mm and breathability of 5000mvp. It is designed with a woven padded outer shell featuring a detachable hood for interchangeable weather conditions and taped seams for ultimate protection. The inner snow skirt is an extra feature originally made for ski. It is an extra layer of fabric that can be fastened at the bottom of the jacket to act as an additional barrier against the wet and/or snow (or in this case – puddles) Thanks to its bright contrasting panels and reflective detailing, your child will be visible from afar when they’re busy focusing on mud, muck and puddles of dirt.

Best Waterproof Trousers

Qikpac

The Qikpac unisex trousers are here to save you from washing leggings or worse – jeans. We all know how uncomfortable jeans are when they get wet. These over-trousers are packable, easy to pull on and are hassle free to wash. They will keep your child dry and free from moisture and dampness thanks to their water resistant design. With taped seams, a windproof finish and waterproof properties of up to 5000mm, your kids can jump in puddles all day long without any worries. A full elasticated waist ensures a comfortable fit and stud hem adjusters have been added for when they’re still growing. Once they’ve been washed, they can be packed back into a mesh pouch for later use.

Best Wellies/Rain Boots

Trumpet

There’s nothing worse than damp or wet feet. When you’re planning to puddle jump, wellies are an absolute essential. We would recommend base layers underneath your over-trousers and simply, pop them into a pair of Trumpets. Tuck in any excess fabric and make sure they wear thick warm socks. The wellies are also perfect for walking to school in the rain and come in a variety of different colours for both little boys and girls.

Review by Donna R. on 6 Feb 2021 review stating “Good quality wellies. Well worth the price! & the kids love them.”

Apolloton

Calling all comic book fans! The Apolloton wellies are fun and bold with animated illustrations including text, aliens and space objects available in a bright cosmic red and planet blue. The outer is natural rubber to ensure full waterproof protection and durable grip soles for staying grounded in the deepest and muckiest of puddles. Featuring a cushioned EVA insole and footbed, the Apolloton wellies are comfortable and lightweight; as if they’re walking on Mars. The pull handles help to ease them on and off fuss-free.

Starryton

Starryton is a representation of a little girl’s diary. Unicorns, rainbows and speech bubbles with shooting stars. Similarly to the Apolloton wellies, they are fun to wear and are available in bubble-gum pink and sky blue. The outer is natural rubber to ensure full waterproof protection and durable grip soles for keeping grounded even if the deepest and muckiest of puddles. Featuring a cushioned EVA insole and footbed, the Apolloton wellies are comfortable and lightweight; as if they’re walking on clouds. The pull handles help to ease them on and off fuss-free without help from adults.

Rain Suits for Kids

Let them jump for joy in Dripdrop and Button

Rain suits or waterproof overalls are a great option when dressing your kids for a day out in wet weather conditions. They are a full body one-piece that goes over base layers or normal clothing to keep them both warm and dry during outside play. The fit is normally oversized so we would recommend layering up underneath if the winds are strong or if it’s snowing. Rain suits are a quick and easy option for dressing that will keep your mind at rest and your child happy with extra protection whilst playing in the rain.
