In order to find a coverall suitable for your child, think about the situations and weather conditions in which it will be worn. Will it be mainly for snowy activities such as sledging in freezing temperatures or fun splashing around in muddy puddles? Our coveralls come with all the important features described below, but differ in terms of warmth level, durability and extra features.
Measure your child’s height and chest/waist in accordance with the size guide linked to each garment and at the bottom of the website. If your child is between two sizes in height, but matches the other body measurements, choose the smaller size and make use of our Extend Size function as needed. By unpicking the relevant seams you can extend the legs and sleeves by 5 cm.
A good fit in the right size will allow your child to play unimpeded. Avoid buying a coverall that is too large for your child to move around in easily, because if they’re not running and jumping, they’ll soon get cold. If the legs are too long, your child may trip over the fabric and the rear hems may wear through. Be sure not to buy a coverall that is too small either. When your child stands up in their coverall, there should be fabric to spare in the crotch area, so that they can stretch their arms up or squat without it pulling uncomfortably.
In order to adjust the warmth level, we recommend using the layering principle for your child. This provides warmth from the air that heats up between layers, and if they get too hot, you can simply remove a layer. Our Monte fleece is perfect for wearing under a coverall, and if the temperature drops further, you can add our Jadis base-layer set with a top like Monte or Corin over the top.
Our Extend Size function enables the sleeve and leg length of a garment to be extended by up to one size. If you carefully unpick the relevant seams – hey presto, your child can wear their coverall for another year!
Avoid snow getting inside winter boots by keeping footwear and coverall legs securely in place with replaceable silicone foot straps. Hailey has elasticated foot straps, and should these wear out, you can replace them with a new silicone pair, available from us.
During the darker months you can never have too many reflectors on your clothing. Our coveralls with all their reflective details are great in this respect, but you still always need to be careful and ideally use LED safety bands or similar when out in the dark.
Outgrown but still as good as new? Our coveralls have name tags with space for several names so that they can be passed or sold on to a younger sibling, a young cousin, a school friend or someone else.
Snow, sleet and horizontal rain – wet, wet, wet. Our coveralls have taped seams and a PFC-free water-repellent finish that will keep your child dry in all weathers. If the water-repellent finish becomes less effective over time, iron gently as per the care instructions to reactivate it.
Child safety is our primary concern. Our detachable hoods are a safety feature to avoid accidents if the hood gets caught up somehow while playing. Moreover, it can be nice to go without a hood on days when the weather is a little warmer.
The water-repellent finish on our garments is completely PFC-free, which means that it is free from environmentally harmful fluorocarbons. Such perfluorinated chemicals have a negative effect on health and the environment, are hormone-disrupting and non-biodegradable.
Our coveralls are designed to be extended by up to one size as needed. By unpicking the relevant seams on the inside of the garment to lengthen the legs and/or sleeves, you can extend its useful life.
