I’ve read that Norwegians love the saying, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.” And that they especially like to say it to sopping wet and pourly dressed foreigners. 🙂
I agree with this saying. You can make or break an outdoor experience by choosing what you put on. And when it comes to kids you don’t want the experience to be a cold, wet, miserable one.
We recently set out on a 3-day family backpacking trip in the High Uintas. The weather there gives you whip lash because it can’t decide what it wants to do, rain, snow, shine or blow. We packed lots of layers, one of the most important pieces being a rain shell.
We’ve burned through several sets of rain gear. Just this last spring we bought the cheapest option at a big name outdoor store and believe me we got what we paid for. Within just a couple hours the crotch of both pairs of pants were ripped out and the coats got snagged and ripped. I was sick about it.
Thankfully before we left on our backpacking trip Oakiwear sent us some Dry Tyke Rain Jackets and Pants. Right out of the box I knew these were nothing like the rain gear we had in the past. Each piece is high quality. They cut no corners during production with tough rip-stop nylon fabric, fully taped seams, waterproof zippers, adjustable cuffs & they’re 100% waterproof and breathable. I can tell these will be around for years to come.
One of my favorite features is the neoprene waistband on the pants. It provides awesome comfort and fit, and that equals no complaining from the little guys. See the details up close in the video below…
