The Didrikson Karpo Kid’s Jacket looks fabulous and very stylish on. The colour is a lovely navy blue (also available in amethyst, pond and tangerine) and has the Didriksons 1913 logo embroidered on the front.
The fabric is great quality, soft to touch and not at all stiff like some showerproof jackets. On the inside of the jacket it has lovely grey fur which is super soft and feels like a teddy bear! The sleeves even look great folded back to show off the fur.
The Karpo jacket comes with Didriksons BREEZEsystem which has been created to be breathable, windproof and water-resistant to keep little ones dry and comfortable in light rain showers (heat level 4). So far my son has been kept warm and dry in some of the wettest and windiest weather conditions we have experienced recently. The back of the jacket is slightly longer to help keep him warm and dry too and there is a reflective strip going across the back to keep him visible and safe in the dark nights.
It also comes with some other great features, like the adjustable and detachable hood. The hood is adjustable with a Velcro strip on the back of the hood and detaches from the jacket using quality poppers. When the hood is detached the jacket still has a nice big collar to keep my son’s neck warm.
The large net pockets can easily fit gloved hands in and have very handy zips. All the zips glide up and down really easily and my son can manage this without help.
This is a very practical jacket for any active child and can be machine washed. For me though the best thing about this jacket is that it’s not only a good looking jacket that keeps my son warm but it’s also not too thick. This is a great advantage as I don’t have to take the jacket off before putting him into car seats when it is freezing outside.
My son loves his new jacket and I would highly recommend it.
The Didriksons Karpo Kid’s Jacket has a Function Level of 5, a Heat Level of 4 and is available in Amethyst, Pond, Navy and Tangerine. For more information visit www.didriksons.com.
