It can be hard to see kids at dusk and in the dark. Different parts of our clothing and hardware reflect light, and therefore enhance safety. And of course, they look great, too.
Hidden pacifier and key holder
Hunting for pacifiers has got to be one of parents’ least favorite hobbies. Now you can do it less often: Thanks to the integrated pacifier holder, your child’s binky will now be in reach all day long – and your little explorers (and you) will be a lot more relaxed.
Outside in the snow or in the woods, overalls are great. Inside a restaurant, they’re not so great, as it suddenly gets so warm that kids need to take off the upper part of the overall. That’s where our hidden suspenders come in. There’s no more need for the tedious cycle of knotting sleeves around the hips, only to tighten them every few minutes because the knot keeps loosening. Instead, just pull the suspenders out of their integrated pocket and the overall will sit as comfortably as any pants.
Kids playing outside shouldn’t have to go just because they have to GO. That’s why we developed our integrated potty zipper. It’s made for those times when activities in the great outdoors last a while: Simply open the zipper around the hips, take care of business, close the zipper, and carry on!
There’s always something left over, whether it’s the last bits of a snack or just a paper bag. We integrated a special garbage pocket for just these things. Once at home, the pocket can be turned inside out to empty it, then washed.
Seamless lycra cuff
We use flexible Lycra material for our cuffs and fashion them with seamless thumbholes. That makes them beautifully soft and guarantees freedom of movement under gloves. That way, gloves will be worn more often, and cold hands (which lead to less time playing outside) can be avoided.
This hood is pre-shaped to fit kids’ heads perfectly, so there’s nothing to restrict kids’ field of vision. After all, you need good visibility to play tag or hide and seek!
Waterproof to 15,000mm water gage
These membranes withstand water pressure equivalent to a depth of 15 meters and don’t let water penetrate even after hours of playing in the rain. Such high technical standards in children’s clothing are not a given, though it’s just when digging, horsing around and running that kids be protected from getting wet. That’s why we test our material intensively, so kids can stay dry and keep playing, no matter what the weather.
10,000 g/m2/24 h breathability
A membrane is what regulates the climate inside an item of clothing. It must keep out all water, but still actively transport sweat toward the outside. So breathability plays a big part in the comfort of the clothes: After all, no one wants to wear a plastic bag, even if it is waterproof. Our membranes provide superior performance in both respects: Thanks to their high waterproof rating, they withstand even the most adverse weather conditions, and because of their breathability, kids don’t sweat too much - even when building big igloos.
Durable water repellency
All of our technical materials are treated with a DWR coating (durable water repellency). It’s not only water repellent, but also dirt resistant. Many such coatings in outdoor clothing are problematic, however, because of their consequences for the environment. Fluorobarbon (PFC) especially has come under fire. We love nature and are aware of our responsibility to protect it, so we refrain from using C-8 coatings. We work as hard as we can on PFC-free alternatives so we can gradually shift the entire collection. The challenge is finding the right balance between function and ecological sustainability. We are switching over most of our technical products to a more environmentally friendly C-6 DWR, because good, lasting water-repellent function is extremely important for children’s clothing. Most of our products already have a PFOA/PFOS-free DWR, and a part of the collection is already completely free of PFC. We are doing everything in our power to further increase this number.
Fully taped seams
This product features fully taped seams, providing optimal protection from water, because the seams are usually the first point where water penetrates the inner material. So kids stay dry, whether it rains or snows or there’s just a little accident with a juice box.
We only use zippers made by market leader YKK. That lets us guarantee the best quality and optimal performance. And it’s easy-peasy to open the zipper, even in frosty temperatures.
PrimaLoft® Eco insulation
The vegan inuslation material PrimaLoft® Eco is light as a feather, water repellent, keeps kids warm – and is environmentally friendly, too! It’s made of a mixture of recycled materials and PrimaLoft® virgin fibers, which combine to create a breathable, extremely efficient layer of thermal insulation. Depending on the product, the proportion of recycled material is between 60% and 100%. And because the material is so amazingly soft, it guarantees an all-around snuggly feeling – almost like a favorite Teddy bear.
Our anatomically pre-shaped products help maintain as much freedom of movement as possible, even when children have to be packed up nice and warm.
We not only build in zipper protection on the outside, but also the inside. Little chins getting rubbed raw are now finally a thing of the past.
