We do love to get outdoors as much as we can and with winter approaching it’s important to remember that the grown ups in the household need to be as suitably attired as Monkey always is. We’ve had a number of adventures over the last few weeks including an afternoon spent at Westonbirt Arboretum wandering through the Woods with Dickies.
Who are Dickies? Well Dickies are a clothing company who special is quality clothing, and Daddy P and I decided to put them to the test.
I’ve been looking for some new boots suitable for our woodland walks for a while, and the Dickies Donegal Safety Boots seemed to fit the bill perfectly.
I knew these would be perfect for wandering through the Woods, with their thick tread they’d stop me falling over on slippery surfaces too!
With the thicker soles, my notoriously cold feet have kept that little bit warmer. I did struggle with the cuffs of the boots rubbing my legs the first time I wore these boots, but I now wear them with my longer walking socks and haven’t had a problem since. These particular boots are priced at £37.95, and Dickies have a wide selection available.
Daddy P opted to go wandering through the Woods with Dickies, and one of their jackets. The Dickies 3 in 1 jacket offers him the versatility he likes.
The jacket consists of an inner detachable fleece and outer shower-proof jacket. The collar conceals an adjustable hood and the jacket also has a chin guard, reflective elements and an adjustable hem.
At the moment Daddy P is wearing the jacket with the fleece lining, but I know come Spring when it starts warming up again, he’ll remove the fleece and will have two separate jackets for the price of one.
Whether we’ve been wandering through the woods or flying a kite in freezing conditions last weekend, Daddy P has put this jacket to the test and given it his seal of approval. Priced at £59.95, you can find a really comprehensive range of coats and jackets on the Dickies website, with something to suit everyone.
We’ve both been really rather impressed with Dickies and I’m sure my boots and Daddy P’s jacket will be accompanying us on many adventures in the months ahead.
