It's on offer at the moment, DD needs a warm coat and I'm wondering about getting this one.
I have been scouring everywhere for a WARM coat that isn't lined with that sort of sheep's fleece/teddy-bear lining because it gives DD the heebie-jeebies and she will not wear any item with it in. Which is annoying as it's by far the warmest!
I love the Uniqlo puffa ones (she already has the light puffa jacket but it's not cutting it now it's colder) but they're about the same price as the Boden duffle (with discount) so I'm wondering about ringing the changes from puffa style. I love duffles and DD likes Paddington. Any way to get her wear a warmer coat and I will deploy it!
Could just order and try it but returns can be a faff and if she tries it on and loves it but it's obv not warm enough I will have a high old time persuading her it's going back.
May order it and then just check it out for warmth before I let DD try it on.
It looks lovely and it's so hard to find anything that's a bit longer in length. I know kids don't like to be constrained by anything longer than hip-length (at least DD doesn't) but as she refuses sheepy linings it's hard to get a jacket that will keep her covered up enough. I know I feel the cold in my legs if I go out in just a jacket, no matter how puffy, and DD is such a scrawny little thing, she needs wrapping up to keep out the chill.
Bought the sky blue one aged 9-10 for my daughter last year and it looks lovely and she gets loads of compliments on it but I'm a bit disappointed as the tie on the toggle looks a bit frayed already. However I still love it and it was in the boden sale ( think I bought it late Jan so maybe wait till then- or they're always coming up on eBay I actually got myself an aubergine grown ups boden duffle coat which I love and it's warm enough with a big scarf on really cold days
