The lovely people at Blacks got in touch asking if we would like to take a look at the new range of Berghaus jackets for children. As you might have guessed, we were more than happy to put them to the test!
We love to get out and about as a family and we enjoy nothing more than a long bracing country walk on a Sunday afternoon before coming home to a big fat roast. There is just something that I love about this time of year. All those first signs of spring when everything feels all fresh and new. After months of grey and gloom, it finally feels like somebody has remembered to turn the lights on! That said, this is Yorkshire of course and the weather can be temperamental to say the least. But if we let that get in the way, we would never leave the house. And that of course is where these lovely Berghaus jackets came in. We were ready for anything.
This Berghaus Girl’s Callander Waterproof Jacket is bright, lightweight and really versatile. It makes for the perfect wet weather barrier for little adventurers. The special fabric means that it sheds moisture effortlessly whilst remaining bulk-free and breathable which is ideal for casual walks (or even the school run!) in changeable conditions. It has an adjustable roll-away hood with a rear toggle for a customised fit and two pockets. Essential for all those stones and feathers you might find on your travels of course. It is available from age 3 right through to 12 years and is currently in the sale at £42.
The Berghaus Girl’s Carrock 3 in 1 Jacket really is versatile as it combines a super cosy fleece with a highly protective outer layer for all weather adaptability. The fabric exterior totally shields from the toughest downpours whilst the removable interior fleece provides lightweight warmth. The reflective piping ensures extra visibility and increased safety in darker conditions. Again, this jacket also has a roll-away hood and rear toggles for a personalised fit keeping you nice and snug against the elements. It is also available from age 3 through to 12 years and is currently priced at £55 in the sale.
We are quite an outdoorsy family and having the right gear is essential of course. We go on lots of hikes and spend most of our holidays exploring up in the Lake District but these jackets are so versatile that they would even be ideal for the school run or just out and about at home too. When kids are dressed properly, then nothing can get in the way of your adventures.
I have to say that I was seriously impressed with both of these Berghaus jackets from Blacks. We have really put them to the test over the last few weeks and they have shown to be practical and hard wearing while looking great. I can’t recommend them enough (especially while they are both so greatly reduced in the current sale – what a bargain!)
