Childrens waterproofs

Does anyone have any advice on where to buy half decent waterproofs for small (6-8yrs) children. I have looked at various chandlery outlets etc and the range is very limited.

I have decent waterproofs, however I figure that if the children are cold and wet we won't be going!

Malcolm

Hi Malcolm,

I would recommend "Andark Diving" on the old A27 at Swanwick/Hamble. They have everything you would need on the shelf if not they will get it for you.

they also have a wbsite.

hope this is helpfull.

I have just bought Henri Lloyd breathables, fleece midlayer and Aigle boots for my 8 year old lad and he is chuffed because they are both warm and 'it was like, cool?' - to use the modern US vernacular - at the same time. I bought them where I live here in Holland and have no idea where you will get them in Blightly but the HLs are excellent pieces of kit. HL website will list stockists I'm sure.

And.... your absolutely correct in your assumption. If the family is cold they do not come out to play.

Hi TaitH
There is company down in Cornwall that they do what you are looking for.
Unfortunately can't find their name right now but they always have a stand at the LBS and they ALWAYS have specials.
Their staff (wet suits, dry suits, RIB dry suits breathable, wind shealds, socks, etc, etc) is quite reasonable priced and very good. They also do fit to measure which is ideal for children.
I got some outfits for my children 4 and 13 and they are brill!!
However if someone here knows the name of this company may be able to help you more.

PS THEY ARE THE MANUFACTURES not just any shop and they also retail

Hi Malcolm,

Our kids (age 3, 5, and 7) wear lightweight Regatta waterproof jackets and trousers as sold by Oswald Bailey outdoor shops. They're breathable, and adequately waterproof for our use.

Mind you, we don't take them out when the weather's bad - it's mainly protection from spray we're after. (I don't think our children would appreciate bad weather ribbing whatever they're wearing.)

cheers,
Simon

Suspect Manos might be thinking of Ravenspring in Totnes, Devon.
Extremely helpful. Good kit and will make to order. Not cheap though!
