Teacher says it needs to be waterproof ideally.

She's 11yo & wears a size 14 in adult clothing (no, not overweight before anyone jumps on me - she's bigger all over than me, & taller too).

Any idea where to look that won't cost me an arm and a leg, for something that isn't toooo grown up for an 11yo? smile

We went to sports direct for a lot of the stuff our son needed

It will probably be trashed. I would be scouring the charity shops, personally.

Decathlon is fabulous.

A jacket in a pack would be showerproof.,size:12/14

Depends how much you want to spend really.

Cheap will get you probably waterproof but sweaty - maybe not too much of an issue in a child.

On the cheaper end of the market, Mountain Warehouse, some decathlon, tresspass.

Sports direct, cheap as possible as it may get wrecked or lost

Thank you! We'll start in Sports Direct and go from there.

WaxOnFeckOff, waterproof & sweaty is not desireable at the mo! By the end of the day she's most definitely ready for a shower. I imagine that'd be worse in a sweaty coat.

It getting ruined or lost is a good point; we went for the cheapest wellies (in size bloomin' 9 shock ) we could find for that reason.

I'm hoping the rest of the list is mainly made up of stuff she already has so nothing new is needed <crosses everything>

Download the sports direct app and buy from there as there is a code for 20% off if you order through the app.
I just bought DD a waterproof jacket, water proof trousers, fleece and body warmer from there last week for her cub camp. Came to about £40 + delivery.

I'd look at Regatta or own brand stuff at Go Outdoors or Decathlon

WaxOnFeckOff Sun 18-Mar-18 14:12:01

Goretex is the non sweaty material or Isotex etc. That will cost more but is there any chance she might be able to use this for a few years? Ebay might be your friend for a better quality but 2nd hand if you don't think she will get any wear.

The Range sell regatta at reasonable prices.

Hopefully she'll get a few years wear out of it! She's constantly growing at the mo...I do keep telling her to sloooooow down though grin

I'll get the laptop out to have a look at all the links when I've finished tepee building with dd2...we have to make accessories now <sigh>

That1950sMum Sun 18-Mar-18 14:38:15

Definitely Sports Direct or Trespass.

Uniglo18 Sun 18-Mar-18 14:48:13

BringOnTheScience Sun 18-Mar-18 14:51:18

AlbusPercival Sun 18-Mar-18 14:54:51
