Summer is over! Officially the nights are lengthening, day’s shortening and the temperature is dropping in the early morning and late afternoon. With the schools returning, layer up your children and keep them comfortable, warm and waterproof on the school run, weekend walks or out in town as well as for shooting, riding and stalking days as the autumn and winter approaches.
At ArdMoor we have a fantastic range of jackets, gilets, hats, trousers and footwear for girls and boys that are of superb quality and value, which are guaranteed to please both you and them in terms of performance, comfort, warmth and style.
Jackets – make sure they are waterproof, warm and roomy to fit clothing underneath. Everyday wear includes the excellent blouson styled jackets available from both Mountain Horse, Mark Todd and Harry Hall. An all-round jacket, a blouson has a snug, cosy fleece lining to keep out cold temperatures while the softshell, waterproof outer layer will keep them dry within. The Mountain Horse Audrey Jacket Jr is a really warm, lightweight padded jacket that oozes style with a water-repellent outer, perfect for any chilly day.
For the shooting season, equip them with the durable, waterproof and functional Seeland Eton Kids Shooting Jacket, beautifully breathable and comfortable and it comes with a handy detachable hood and plenty of pockets. Lightweight, technical fabric ensures they will want to put this one on!
Gilets/Fleeces – Fleece is every parent’s friend for their children. Soft next to the skin, cosy and versatile, fleece will keep the core beautifully warm even in the coldest temperatures. Baleno have produced a new mini version of their bestselling adult gilet and jacket. The Wizz and Cody are both made from the same superior quality, thick Sherpa fleece which is ideal for wearing as an outer layer or under a waterproof outer in really cold weather.
Hats – For shooting, the waterproof, high quality Alan Paine Rutland Kids Tweed Cap fits the bill perfectly and has a totally breathable membrane to keep your child’s head dry. Beanies are an effective way of keeping head and ears completely warm and protected, try the fabulous new range from Gill including the Junior Floating Knit Beanie for a close fit, scratch free warm hat.
Trousers – Fantastically lightweight shooting trousers for kids from Seeland include the Woodcock and Eton. Windproof, waterproof and breathable, they give maximum protection thanks to the technical Seetex membrane. These trousers are designed for children who love being outside in all weathers, are fully protective and have numerous pockets to store equipment.
