We are often asked about our kids’ waterproofs, fleeces and fashion coats and jackets. Before you buy, read our handy buying guide to learn more about their qualities, including waterproof and warmth ratings.
How waterproof garments are made to stay dry in the wettest of weather using quality fabrics and innovative technologies.
Find out how wind resistant fabrics are constructed for full wind protection when the chill is at its worst.
We explain how we test for the warmth and breathability of our fabrics to ensure children stay cosy against the cold
Waterproofing – Rain Rain, Go Away!
Our waterproofing systems can be broken down using our star ratings, which can also be found on the tags when shopping in store.
3 stars mean the garment is made with 100% WATERPROOF fabric and with taped or bonded seams to keep water out.
2 stars indicate a SHOWER PROOF style. The fabric is waterproof, but the seams are not taped so some water will probably get in if there’s a heavy downpour.
1 star is given to WATER REPELLENT fabrics, like our polarfleece, which have a special finish applied to offer great protection in light showers by deflecting raindrops.
Sealing the Seams
For rainwear to be waterproof, the seams must be taped or bonded to keep any tiny holes caused by needle stitching blocked. Our product descriptions and features will let you know which method we have used on each jacket – both are fully effective!
Wind Resistance – a Wind-Wind Solution
The way we weave our fabrics ensures they are breathable but tight enough to block out chills to keep your child warm. This system means we don’t have to use any plastic laminate or other extra materials – just a clever way with a loom. Our star rating system will let you know how well a garment is equipped to protect you against strong winds.
A 3-star jacket will offer you full wind protection for when the wind chill factor is at its worst.
2 stars means the garment can cut out the wind on most days, but the odd bitterly cold wind will seep through.
1-star styles are a good outer layer for autumn or spring when there might be a bit of a breeze and you need something light to throw on.
Breathability - No More Stuffy Sleeves
Active children and babies need protecting against the elements but without the risk of overheating. Our waterproof fabrics are designed with pores that are small enough to keep water out but big enough to release water vapour as they start warming up, making them breathable too. JoJo polarfleece is extra cosy but also boasts breathable properties, making it perfect for outdoorsy types.
3 stars = extra cosy for the coldest of winter or snowy weather.
2 stars = medium warmth for most winter days.
1 star = good layer to keep out autumn or spring chills.
