We get the inside story from our designer Angelica Lindersson. 

Wind fleece jackets - Polarn O. PyretThe fleece jacket is one of our most popular garments and we specifically design it – and all our other items of childrenswear – to be comfortable for a child to wear. The fact that it's both windproof and waterproof makes it ideal as either a warm middle layer or as a jacket in its own right.  It's essentially a 2-in-1 jacket that can be used all year round. It's just as perfect on a windy autumn day as it is on a cool summer evening. 

The wind fleece consists of three different layers and materials: the outer fleece, a windproof and waterproof layer in the middle, and a soft, brushed jersey fabric on the inside. This means that even if the outer fleece fabric gets wet when the child is playing in the rain, the layer closest to the child’s body will stay dry.


We've updated the design slightly this year by adding front pockets so the child can easily warm their hands and has a safe place to keep any treasures they find. We've also added more reflectors to ensure the child is highly visible from all directions. Furthermore, the front collar has our usual extra-soft fabric to make sure the zip doesn't chafe the child's chin. 

The jacket also has slightly longer cuffs with thumb holes that kids just love at the ends. They not only help to keep the child's hands warm, but can easily be folded up or down to grow with the child. Last but not least, we're especially proud of our smart snap solution that makes it simple to attach to our shell jacket.
