Outdoor clothing recommendations

Any recommendations for wet weather gear?

My nearly 4 year old has previously had Togz which are great but don't have elasticated bottoms to the trousers so tend to ride up over his wellies.

I've been looking at Muddy Puddles, but they look very wide in the leg. And Polarn but wondering if its really worth the extra money.

It's for general outdoor play, muddy streams, park, rather than hiking all day.

Ideally something flexible and breathable, waterproof and wind proof.

Polarn O Pyret is great. Try and get it in the John Lewis sales. Also check out the Cozy Mole website.

Polarn o pyret are good but no better than other Swedish kids outdoor clothing. We have a Polarn o pyret rain outfit and snow outfit for 14 month old ds and a cheaper brand snow outfit and I actually prefer our cheaper brand snow outfit.

I liked Muddy Puddles because, being wide in the leg, they were very easy to pull on over clothes and boots.

Thanks all, will have a look at all those mentioned.

JoJo Maman bebe waterproofs are fantastic. You can get either fleece lined or non fleece lines waterproof dungarees. Less pricey than spotty otter but still great quality.

Love the Spotty Otter stuff. Kids love it too.

We've bought from these guys before and can vouch for their quality and service. A nice company ethos too.

I was a firm Muddy Puddles buyer, but then I tried out the Lidll waterproofs. For £6.99 (or something like that) they do the job brilliantly. Only problem is working out which week they are available.

Seriously ask in aldi. We got some dungaree style ski trousers and jacket for 14 pounds total and they are elasticated at the bottom, proper metal clasp at waist, very warm and snow proof in a bright green. They start with age 5 but my three year old wears the trousers now just rolled up a bit and they don't fall down. Really don't need to spend more and they look very cute I promise! You may need to ask as his were in the back.
