Reima have been on our shopping radar for quite some time having discovered them a few years back. Reima, was founded in Finland in 1944, and is the leading Nordic brand for functional children’s wear. So, with the dire weather of last winter still fairly fresh in my memories of early this year I was looking for winter coats for the boys this year that could tackle even the coldest of weather. So it was a no brainer that I would see what Reima coats had to offer.
We adored the Reimatic Winter Overall Jacob wore last year but I was looking for a winter coat that would suit both boys but in different colour options as Jacob loves wearing the same as his brother and Joshua is 7 and ‘twinning’ clothing with his younger brother is no longer cool in his eyes.
Our friends over at Reima heard of our search and suggested that their new Regor Winter Jackets would fit the bill being waterproof, windproof and have a breathable outer shell plus a cosy polyester lining that keeps children nice and warm down to -20°C which sounded great in my book.
I was unsure as to if the coats would be too bulky knowing how well they kept kids warm in -20°C degree conditions however when they arrived I was thrilled that they were just as thick as a standard coat so having all the bonus features to keep the kids warm were a winner for me. However, me loving them is one thing, the kids being able to play and be kids in them was another so we took them away on holiday to give them a real seaside holiday trial.
The coats had adjustable cuffs that will no doubt help when getting gloves on the toddler and then help keep them there, which is a bonus in any parents eyes! There was a detachable snow skirt on them that I removed for our weekend away but I love the idea of having them put back in once the weather drops really cold again to ensure that the kids stay dry and super warm.
The hood is detachable too and the whole coat can even be washed so I can keep it in tip top condition (oh and I have washed them both once after a mess trip to the beach! and both came out like new and didn’t take long to dry either)
The boys look fantastic in their Reima Regor Winter coats and I am thrilled to know that no matter what they are going to be super snuggly and warm
The Reima Regor winter coat can be purchased in ages 2-10 years and comes in 5 colour options with retail price of €149.95 each
