I like to take my daughter on lots of messy walks through our local national forest. I always ended up with a load of washing after each visit so when I saw these all in one suits I was instantly attracted to the idea of less washing!
They are designed to go over your childs clothes like overalls and are absolutely brilliant for messy days out. I bought mine in Navy and Red from an online store and it only cost 20 euro. There were a range of colours and sizes but I choose the red and navy because I wanted something neutral in case I wanted my sisters sons to use it too.
I found this invaluable when we go off exploring around the country side. The inside is lined with fleece so it works well keeping my daughter warm too. I usually put on a raincoat over it to just for a bit of extra warmth but this wouldnt be necessary. It is waterproof and mud proof. Tested to its limits by my two year old in mud and water. We havent experienced any problems.
Its very durable and wouldnt tear easily either. I pull it up over my daughters clothes before we set off and put on her wellies and when we are finished I just pull it off and put it in a plastic bag to go home to wash it. It zips up at the front so the child can just stand into it. Really easy to take on and off again. Most of the time you can just dry it with a wet sponge because its just mud. It does dry quickly after being thrown into a regular wash though.
I am really please I came across this product because it is ingenious for messy adventurers!
Togz is a pretty well trusted brand in my house and this All in One suit is no exception. It costs £24.99 if you buy it from their own website and is absolutely perfect for those rainy days which we seem to get a lot of!
The suit is made of a waterproof and breathable fabric on the outside and inside is fully fleece lined. It has a Tog rating of 3+ so is lovely and cosy. The waterproof fabric is also 5x the British standard according to the tag that came on it.
The sizes come in 9-12 months for toddlers and 2-5 years for a child, the colours are red/navy, royal/navy, and raspberry/navy. The suit has a zip which comes three quarters of the way down. The zip is lined with microfleece as is the hood so there is no way that draughts can get in!
The hood has velcro points for adjusting for a good fit and the waist is also elasticated. There are velcro fastenings on the ankles and the wrists so if you are wearing the suit with wellies or gloves then you can get a perfect fit.
The suit is waterproofed ( teflon) and this helps to keep it clean as well as dry, apparantly it makes it resist dirt stains and it is true! No matter how many times my son falls over, it is very rare that the dirt shows up on the suit, although the dark colour does help! The knees are reinforced with extra fabric to prevent ripping. It is machine washable at 40 if you do get it dirty.
The suit is very easy to put on and take off and is suitable for all year round use. It is a generous fit so you are able to bulk up with extra layers underneath in the colder months.
My son wears this suit mostly in the colder months as it can get quite hot if you wear it in the summer rain! But it does the job perfectly. He wears it with his wellies and can splash in as many puddles as he wants without getting wet. He also wears it as a snow suit with extra clothes underneath, it keeps him warm for ages!
I would recommend this suit to anyone with kids who love being outdoors, it is a great fit, and a good price for the amount of use you get out of it.
