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."

Mountain Warehouse Orbit Kids Waterproof Jacket
MW are quite proud of this jacket. It's been tested to withstand 2,000mm of rain in a 24 hour period - which probably is an average summers' day in the Lakes! That, with the taped seams and the storm flaps on the zip, make this an extremly waterproof jacket.
Kids love pockets, and the Orbit doesn't fail here, as it has two convenient side pockets with zips and an inner velcro pocket for storing valuables.

ISBJÖRN's STORM hard Shell Jacket is an excellent choice to keep your little ones warm and dry all year round. It features a detachable hood, a waterproof front zipper, two chest pockets and is adjustable in the hem. The curved sleeves allow for full movement, and a soft cuff in the sleeve ending makes it stay in place. The sleeve also has a "Grow Cuff", which when released makes the sleeve 3 cm longer - ideal for making it last longer to fit a growning kid!
