What do I need most?
The most important piece of gear is a good set of waterproof outer layers, perfect for exploring while staying dry and keeping clothes underneath dry and neat. Our classic raingear can be sprayed off easily and dries quickly, ready for new adventures! If you play outdoors at home and on weekends, consider a second set of pants.
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 delivered directly to the school for pickup at the end of your gear-up week.
