Factors to bear in mind when choosing a coverall for your child

rocket_didriksons_aw2022_kids_TGB3252_c222.jpg

Use

To find a coverall suitable for your child, think about the situations and weather conditions in which it will be worn. Will it be sitting still in a stroller, so the warmest coverall is needed, or crawling around on the ground so extra durability is needed? Our coveralls have many important features, but differ in terms of warmth level, durability, and extra features.

arke_didriksons_aw2022_kids_TGB9836_c222.jpg

Size

Measure your child’s height and chest/waist in accordance with the size. If your child is between two sizes in height, choose the smaller size and use our Extend Size function as needed. By unpicking the relevant seams, you can extend the legs and sleeves by 5 cm.

Fit

A good fit in the right size will let your child play unimpeded. Avoid buying a coverall that is too large to move around in easily, to not get cold if they can’t jump and run around. If the legs are too long, your child may trip over the fabric and the rear hems may wear through. Do not buy a coverall that is too small either. When standing up in their coverall, there should be fabric to spare in the crotch area, to stretch their arms up or squat without uncomfortable pulling.

Warmth

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. A fleece jacket is perfect for wearing under a coverall, and if the temperature drops further, you can add a base-layer underneath.

Features

Our coveralls have several important features, and beside the ones described in the images below, there are often loops for attaching gloves on the inside of the adjustable sleeves, elasticated and adjustable ankle cuffs to fit over boots, as well as snow gaiters to prevent snow getting into footwear. They have an adjustable waist and a soft protective flap over the zip that won’t chafe against the wearer’s chin or neck. A few coveralls lack some of these features, so check the product description for the correct information.

Extend Size

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!

Foot straps

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.

Reflective details

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.

Name tags

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.

Waterproof

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.

Detachable hoods

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.

Why you should choose Didriksons for your child

In addition to the quality and design of the garment, it can be reassuring to know that we are also working on the following elements in our design and manufacturing process to improve sustainability.

pfc_free.png

 

PFC-free water-repellent finish

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.

Extend Size function

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.

eco_progressiv.png

 

Eco progressive

This symbol is used for products where we are employing new means of producing garments in a more environmentally sound way. This could be a new technique to produce material or fibre mixtures with reduced negative impact on the environment.
