Out in any weather with Muddy Puddles EcoSplash Jacket

With the weather being undecided whether it’s winter or spring, it’s really difficult to know what to plan out at the weekends. We like to go out and have some fun outdoors to blow out the cobwebs but if the weather is torrential rain and freezing cold too, it puts a bit of a dampener on our plans.

This is what happens when you ask for a ‘nice’ photograph!

Olly was recently sent a new Muddy Puddles EcoSplash Jacket to try out and we really like it. The jacket is in both mine and Olly’s favourite colour way; navy blue and white stripes which is just perfect. Olly is now wearing aged 4-5 year old clothing as he’s had one of those growth spurts recently and nothing looks like it’s fitting him anymore but the fit of this coat is great. There’s plenty of growing room in it, it’s a great fit in the length of the body and the arms are not too long. This jacket is certainly going to last him throughout the winter.

From a practicality ‘Mum’ point of view, the Muddy Puddles EcoSplash Jacket is great for spending a little bit of time outside over the weekend. It’s completely waterproof with taped seams but incredibly lightweight meaning Olly can get up to his usual tricks of running around the park without feeling too restricted in his jacket. He’ll also stay toasty warm too with the super soft fleecy lining which is in a great contrasting red colour.

The jacket has hemmed cuffs to keep out the draught and the bottom of the jacket is slightly longer to keep bottoms covered too. I really love the extra detail as a moaning child with a wet bottom from going down the slide is no fun at all! One of the features that I really love about the jacket is the reflective detailing. Such a simple but clever touch to ensure Olly is seen by headlights wearing the coat if he’s out at dusk and in the dark.

Olly loves his new Muddy Puddles EcoSplash Jacket and unfortunately refuses to wear it for school. He’s a little frightened one of the other children will borrow it and it’ll be lost forever. I’ve reassured him I can write his name in the label but he’s having none of it. Good news is though he’s taken really good care of it and has hung it up every time he’s come home when we’re out and about. This jacket is for best and he really loves it!

The Muddy Puddles EcoSplash Jacket is on sale right now for just £25.20 which is a brilliant price for such a well made cosy coat.

Disclosure: Thanks to Muddy Puddles for sending Olly the jacket. All words and photographs of my crazy child are my own.

    Oh bless how sweet, it sounds like he’s really attached to his jacket! Love that it covers his bottom, Lia would love a long jacket for when we’re at the park.
