WE KNOW IT’S EARLY,
BUT…

Like it or not, autumn is on the way. And with the British weather proving predictably unpredictable, these lightweight waterproof jackets are a must

Welcome to the new school year. A time of shiny new shoes, unblemished exercise books and much anticipation. Most children start the new term in summer uniform, but September weather can range from midsummer-style heat to autumn chilliness – so what’s the best cover-up? A winter coat is too heavy but these lightweight padded zip-up jackets are just the job. They are also thin enough to pop underneath a bigger coat for an extra later of warmth when winter comes. Kids will be won over by the bright array of snappy primary shades. You'll like its snug, waterproof design and the fact that it washes well, even at 30 degrees.
