Our Top 5 Children's Jackets
Here's our selection of the Top 5 Children's Jackets at the moment.
As with most outdoor kit, walking trousers have more than their fare share of technical phrases and acronyms - one to watch for here is DWR - or Durable Water Repellency - which is a waterproofing treatment sprayed onto the outer layer of the fabric. As the full name suggests, it's not waterproof in itself, but does reduce the amount of water going through the fabric. If you'd like any help with what to look for in a pair of walking trousers, then click here for our guide.
As we get to see new kit, we'll be updating this page, so keep popping back to stay up-to-date with our selection.
Regatta Kids Hydrate III Waterproof 3-In-1 Jacket
Hurry... because this is a great offer and at this price, the Hydrate III won't be around for long...
3-in-1s offer a fabulous combination of an inner fleece, an outer waterproof and windproof shell and then both together for the ultimate warmth. Because they are designed to be worn together, both parts fit together perfectly... there's no uncomfortable bunching of the inner layer here.
So, the outer shell is an ISOTEX fabric which is waterproof and breathable, and features water-resistant zips and a foldaway hood. The reflective panels help make sure your kid will be seen when out in low light. The inner fleece is nice and cuddly, and can be folded down into a really small package to fit into your daypack when needed.
One of the five colour styles available should appeal to either girls or boys - and either one are available at the moment at this great price...

The Avery is a bit of a hybrid - the mix of the comfort and versatility of a fleece with the warmth of a compressible jacket. The syling does remind us of stuff we used to see as kids in the 80s - but perhaps that is in fashion these days... The sleeves and hood are microfleece whereas the body panel is an insulated, baffled affair providing warmth.
It's lightweight, water resistant and the fleece is made from recycked materials - so your little one is helping the planet. Craghoppers suggest the jacket is "a great option for cooler, active days in the outdoors."
