Advice on buying selopettes and jacket for children

Hi
I am wanting to get my lad who is 4 years old a set of trousers and coat to go out on our boat. I have found many sets but for Junior Small but the size is way to big - hes only 4, and that is for an 6-7 year old!
Has anyone bought anything for a 4 year old recently or has any suggestions?
Many thanks inadvance

;o)

I bought my daughter a snow suit when she was about that age,not really waterproof but it was warm.their is also a firm on line that does chestwaders for kids in small sizes,although I've heard the stories of people falling overboard and them filling with water and drowning.

I don't see any point in buying expensive gear for young kids for example they grow... and very quickly too a cheap wet suit would do and most shops in Cornwall .. if you ever go there, do buy them back from you if you buy another one off them. Hats off to them at 4 yr old I can't see you taking a him out in rough weather so a decent fleece and a waterproof mac kept in a dry bag should suffice

If you are loaded though ignore the above and get the best

Our two have Togz warm and dry suits...... excellent and really tough. As well as the boat, they wear them round the yard and fields.....are generally wedged into one each time they step outside

Warm Dry All in One Suit - Child Style

I think you need to carefully consider the conditions taking young children out - I wouldn't take mine out in very cold / poor weather when they were that young in case "the worst" ever happened - having warm / waterproof clothing would only be one factor.

Having said that mine have ribbed from March-Oct in old ski jackets, fleeces and tracky bottoms with lightweight packable w/proof trousers quite comfortably. Whatever you buy won't last more than a season.

TKMaxx, Trespass etc especailly at outlets are good places, I wouldn't waste money on "junior performance marine wear"
