Keeping warm this winter with Didriksons

The boy will be keeping warm this winter with Didriksons, and their 2016 winter range of kids clothing. We certainly don’t have the extreme conditions that they have in Sweden where Didriksons clothing is designed. This hasn’t stopped the boy from putting Didriksons to the test.

The Boy was sent Theo Boys Jacket in wheat, and I was pleased to see that he hasn’t outgrown the Didriksons range as they have a great selection of coats for older children. He was also very excited to own a beanie hat and chose Mason Youth Beanie in Dark Lilac.

To say the boy is thrilled with the mason beanie is a slight understatement! I think it must be cool to own one, and he has been so happy that I have a problem getting him to remove it. I think if he could sleep in it he would. The quality of the beanie is lovely and you can tell it has good thermal qualities as he tells me how cosy the beanie is. The  colour says dark lilac, I would say its more of a burgundy colour but this suits the boy and he loves it.

Keeping warm this winter will not be a problem for the boy with the Didriksons Theo coat, I love the thermal qualities and the quality of the coat. The boy now cycles to school each day and the longer length means even in the rain he stays mostly dry. The boy loves that there are plenty of pockets including a good size inside pocket which he can pop his beanie in. He also likes the thumb hole cuffs which stop the arms from riding up while he cycles.

Didriksons have a great range of coats, something for everyone. I love the quality and fit of their products and know that they will last and wear well. You can see exactly how waterproof or warm each product is from the useful website features tab. I love that 100% waterproof means that the boy wont come home soggy, and he is just super happy because he has a beanie, so it is win, win!

Didriksons #ForEveryRainyDay – Review

Didriksons have a great range of coats #ForEveryRainyDay, not just for kids. Now that the Autumn is quickly changing into winter I am putting the Didrikson Hana Multi Jacket to the test.

The Hana Multi Jacket comes in three colour combinations, Black, Dark Lilac, and Midnight Blue. In sizes 36-42 these translate to UK size 10-20. I have always bought one size up from my normal sizing so chose a size 38 which is a perfect fit and still allows me to wear a thick jumper underneath. The bonus of the Didriksons Hana jacket is that it is two coats in one, with a waterproof outer and insulated inner jacket.

I love this style of jacket for the British winters which can be unpredictable with wet warm weather or dry cold. Being able to unzip and remove the inner coat means I have great value for money by not having to buy two winter coats. I have been impressed with the quality of the Didriksons coat range and love the styling and detail on each of their coats. The Hana has a good range of features with the adjustable elastic at the hips and also on the hood which can be dethatched.

I love that Didriksons coats always have plenty of pockets, the Hana has a great outer pocket which is perfect for your mobile phone. The side pockets are both deep and have zips to keep valuable safe like keys. There are also inner pockets for those bits you might want to keep dry. Didriksons coats all come with STORMsystem fabric which offers 100% true waterproofness, something that has been invaluable on the walk to school. I can guarantee that it will rain between 3:15 and 3:30 when I collect the boy. Staying dry has been better than having to dash home to change clothes. Yes a Didriksons coat will keep all it covers dry, unlike some high street fashion brands that I have tried.

Didriksons have great styling and one thing that drew me to the Hana styling was the contrast coloured zips. I think this is a nice touch making the Hana Jacket stand out. Didriksons have a great range of all weather coats and Jackets for all the family to find your local stockist visit http://www.didriksons.com and be prepared #ForEveryRainyDay

Didriksons Rainy Day Solutions – Review

Didriksons are a Swedish company who make practical clothing for the whole family, keeping you protected from all the weather that Britain can throw at you! The boy has tried out waterproof coats and trousers from Didriksons and we were both impressed with how good they are. I thought it was about time I tried a Didriksons summer waterproof jacket and chose the Lush Womens Jacket (RRP £140) in Bubblegum.

I must have been feeling brave to choose such a bright colour and the Didriksons Lush coat comes in a great chose of more subtle shades. I wanted a jacket that would be a little longer than waist length as I find on the school run when I do get caught in the rain I end up with a drip line across the top of my legs. The Didriksons range of coats come in different styles and lengths and a range of fun colours.

Didriksons Lush women’s jacket has lots of stylish and useful features. It is an unlined coat so has no warmth layer, but this makes it very practical for the summer as it is lightweight and not bulky to carry. I love all the little details and the Lush jacket has a few different adjustments at the waist and the hem to allow you to fit to your shape. There are also poppers at the cuffs to keep the water out. I selected a size larger than my normal sized clothes (something I have always done) and was pleased with the fit, I like to be able to add a jumper under a coat for those chilly evenings. I was impressed with the number of pockets. The main pockets have a soft lining and are nice and deep. There is an inside pocket possibly for maps or a wallet, and a neat hidden pocket between the outside poppers that you can easily keep your phone or iPod. This pocket even has a clever headphone gap so that you could listen to music while walking.

There have been plenty of opportunities on the school run for me to test out the waterproof nature of the Didriksons Lush jacket and have been pleased that I am staying dry. I found giving the jacket a quick shake, it dried off very quickly. The attached hood and high neck line means that the rain didn’t get into the neck of the coat either. I have had some lovely comments about the styling of the Didriksons Lush jacket, friends have also complimented me on the colour.
