The cold weather is here and warmer jackets are needed. Jordanna has a lovely warm new coat thanks to the people at Didriksons
This is the Vinson Parka and Jordannas coat comes in a beautiful amethyst colour. There are several other colour choices available. This coat comes with many features including a fully detachable hood and a detachable fur trim on the hood. Adjustable cuffs, chin guard and reflective strips on the hood, back and sleeves to keep them safer in the dark. It also has extendable sleeves. The extendable bit is a hidden seam inside the sleeve which can be cut away as the child grows.
Jordannas coat arrived in a large box. However on opening I noticed it was a size smaller than what I would usually buy and did worry it may be too small. (Probably my fault for requesting the wrong size). Luckily Didriksons outerwear is made to last and made to grow with the child and therefore it does fit her.
I love the colour of the coat on Jordanna. I think it really suits her and even enhances her sweet little face.
Jordanna tells me the coat keeps her very warm whilst she is out. It keeps her dry too when raining as it's completely waterproof. She has two big pockets, one on each side of the coat to put hands or items inside and these fasten with press stud buttons.
The hood is quite large and again very warm. There is a fur trim attached to it but this can easily be removed by way of buttons if not wanted.
The coat fastens with a zipper which zips right the way up under the chin but the chin guard prevents the zip from irritating or marking. There are also press stud buttons along the side of the zip for a more secure and warmer fastening.
The Vinson Parka seems extremely well designed and thought through with young ones in mind. It appears to have all the features of a good quality winter coat which most parents would expect. It keeps Jordanna very warm and dry and should be enough to keep her snug this winter, whatever the British weather should decide to throw our way.
The Vinson Parka from Didriksons comes with an RRP of £75.00 and UK stockists can be found on the Didriksons website. I did a little googling and found the Parka on a few websites for less than the RRP.
Simply Piste £65
Little Trekkers £57.79
A google search of Vinson Parka will also bring up many UK stockists. As the Parka comes with extendable sleeves, it is guaranteed to last a good few years.
Didriksons is fast becoming the must have brand when it comes to getting the kids into clothes that will keep them warm and dry and they can happily play outside whatever the weather. Parents choose Didriksons because they know the kids wont complain about the cold and wet and kids choose Didriksons because they love wearing the designs which not only look stylish and cool, but are cut to allow maximum freedom of movement.
This final photograph was taken in the dark outside with the camera flash on and you can clearly see where the reflective strips are on her arms. It looks as tho she is holding two lights.
