The following gear is recommended by Taproot Outdoor School to help your child make the most of their outdoor experience.
What else will you need?
All students should already have baselayers and any accessories needed, but if you need more, you can shop our main page for all kinds of goodies.
What about winter?
Our classic rainsuits are the best economical choice in all-weather play. This waterproof, windproof gear can be layered to fit many temperatures. A 1-2-3 system makes it easy for kids to stay properly dressed in all weather. Read more here.
How do I know what size I need?
Sizing by centimeters helps ensure an excellent fit - just measure your child's standing height, head to toe. We recommend children be within 5cm of the next size before sizing up: a child should measure at least 95cm tall to wear a size 100cm suit. In our 2 piece suits, thin to average size children will last even longer. You can see how our kids fit here.
Please do not order large with the intention of your child growing into their suit, as baggy pants and jacket arms both inhibit play and cause undue wear and tear on the gear. A properly fitted suit will last a long time!
During school order periods, items will be shipped directly to the school for pickup at the end of your gear-up week.
