Need help finding the right size? Our European made gear is designed with room to grow and in most cases, kids have tons of extra space. If you want to choose the right size with room to grow, just measure your child's standing height and convert to centimeters. (Google will do it for you, or you can go here.

Can't measure? Here's our sizing chart to give you an idea of where to start - but for best fit and less chance of return: measure!

Above, Thea at age 3 is just over 37'', or 94cm. She's considered "average" height and weight for her age. On the left, she's wearing size 70cm pink bibbed! She's rocking them just fine, though she's out growing them fast.

In the center photo, she's modeling size 90 navy pants, and right, size 100 red pants. At 94cm, she can just barely pull off the size 100s, but they're baggy and she has tons of room. A general rule is to stay within 5-6cm: any more and cuffs tend to see excess wear and tear, or the child is uncomfortable and movement is restricted.

Below is Thea at age 6 and 117cm tall (46''). She is wearing, from left: size 110cm black, size 120cm yellow, and size 130cm green bibs.

We have a few options for pants - our Classic sets by Celavi come with bibbed pants in sets sized 70cm through 100cm, and with elastic waist pants from sizes 110cm through Juniors.
We also carry bibbed pants separately through size 130cm.

Above, the yellow pants are the best fit here as the green still pull up at her crotch a bit due to the extra length.

Below, 6yr old Thea is 117cm tall and is wearing 120cm yellow bibs and 120cm blue elastic waist pants.

Elastic waist vs Bibbed Pants:
In our Celavi Classic suits, sizes 70cm-100cm come with bibbed pants, while sizes 110 on up come with a high elastic waist. Designed to sit above the natural waist, this helps avoid overlap with pant waist band for comfort, and provides a good amount of overlap under the jacket so that kids stay clean and dry.
Our Taxi Rainsuits by ColorKids come with bibbed pants in all sizes, now up to 140cm.


(Above, 6.5yr old Thea is 125cm tall and is wearing the 128cm Taxi Rainsuit.)

All of our rainsuits are made of a waterproof Polyurethane composite material - that means there is no waterproof coating to wash off over time, the inside has a soft feel, and it moves easily with your child.

O ur rainsuits are PVC free, and suitable for forest school and outdoor play use. Waterproof ratings can be a bit misleading, as the seams are the weakest point and despite welding and/or taping, will still hold a lower rating then the PU fabric from which each item gets its rating.

We've seen great results for durability and we're proud of our gear. With hard play, wear happens - and can usually be repaired for passing along and extending life. We carry various patches and tapes perfect for use on our rainsuits and winter gear.

Following are a few rules of care that will keep your gear in tip top shape:

* The best way to preserve the quality of your waterproof gear is to not over-wash it. (This is not true for softshell, which should be washed to allow the wateproofing to work properly.)  If it gets muddy, let it hang dry and then shake out or wipe down with a damp cloth - nothing abrasive! Spot clean as necessary, and if they do need washed, we recommend a hand wash in a tub or with a hose, using a gentle soap or detergent; and hang dry out of direct sunlight.

* Always dry fully. Hanging gear inside-out and allowing for air flow (not in a box or closed closet) will help prevent mildew inside waterproof gear.

* Avoid abrasive materials like rough concrete or sharp sticks. All trees pose a hang risk when wearing bibbed pant - suspenders will NOT break free - so please take care and watch your children. Because of this, we do not recommend climbing trees in bibbed pants.

* Boot elastics are designed to fit under the sole of rainboots in the highpoint between the heel and front footpad. This will create the best waterproofing possible. If boot elastics wear out, they can be replaced with basic button elastic found at any sewing or craft store.

Have fun out there!
