Kozi Kidz Rainwear: A Review

Earlier this year (just before the heatwave in fact!) Evie was sent a waterproof all in one from Kozi Kidz to review. We'd had a month of solid rain so it seemed the perfect time to get one but, typically, just as it arrived, so did Summer - and it was a while before we had a chance to review it properly.

We LOVE Kozi Kidz..... Daisy has one of their fleece-lined rainbow rain jackets and not an outing passes us by without a total stranger commenting on how gorgeous it. It's vibrant colours and reflective stripes make it very difficult for you to lose your small person, plus it's cosy and warm and, of course, waterproof - so perfect for all weathers.

Evie's waterproofs are no different. We chose the lilac version (they are also available in red, blue and berry) and they had their first wear at Camp Bestival earlier this month. Despite it being August - and very warm and dry! - we'd gone prepared for typical festival weather and taken full waterproofs for us all.

Although the days were totally scorchio we soon learnt that, when camping, the evenings get pretty chilly and Evie ended up wearing hers over her pyjamas to keep the cold out while we were watching the late evening bands.

They turned out to be perfect festival wear. Brightly coloured, and with more trusty reflectors (which meant that Evie was very hard to miss!) they were super cosy and comfortable. We had opted for the 12-18m size (Evie is a chunky 9m old) and they fit perfectly with a couple of layers underneath - and left enough room for Evie to be able to crawl around freely and easily in them (I find that crawling always needs a bit more 'give').

The hood is detachable which is great and removes some bulk when it's not needed (this was particularly helpful when wearing E in the Ergo) but my favourite design feature has to be the two full length zips on the front which meant I could easily take them off without waking Evie up once we were back at the tent and getting ready for bed!

Of course, since then they have had some wear in the actual rain too. Evie hasn't had a chance to splash around in puddles just yet as she is only just beginning to walk (plus I can't find wellies in a size 3!) but they are great for when we head out for a walk in the rain with her in the back carrier. There is also a bit of room for her to grow into so I have no doubt that they will last her into next Spring when I'm sure we will have more April showers and puddles galore!

They retail at a very reasonable £38.99 and are available from all good outdoors specialists.xoxox

  1. Sportbaby is an official stockist of Kozi Kidz and we love it too. My 3 year old is a very lucky boy as he gets to test out the products and he loves Kozi Kidz's waterproofs and his 'favourite' fleece jacket. Great brand and a great family run business too.
