Didriksons Bawal Jacket

When we were away last week, I had little idea of what the weather would throw at us.  One minute the sun was out, the next the clouds would come back.  I needed something for Monkey to wear that would cover the changeable conditions and I opted for the Didriksons Bawal Jacket.

We’re big fans of the Swedish outdoors clothing company, but this jacket is a little different from the waterproof jackets we’ve tried over the last few years.  It’s made of a powerstretch 95% polyester/5% elastine knit material with brushed fleece on the inside. It’s not waterproof, but does feature their THERMALsystem, providing insulation for my son whilst not letting him overheat.  I can see him using the Didriksons Bawal Jacket a lot in the months ahead.

It comes with a removable hood, pockets and chin protector.  There’s also a name tag and hanging loop.

Monkey’s favourite colour is red so we went for the Flag Red colour option, although the jacket is also available in Navy, Fuschia and Sharp Blue. For sizing we opted for 130 which is equivalent to age 7-8 years and is a good fit for my 7-year-old son.

My intrepid explorer needed a jacket that would work well for a dinosaur hunting adventure.

But it would also need to cope well with the dizzy heights of a Big Wheel trip and a beach combing expedition.  How would it fair in the changeable conditions and what would my 7-year-old make of his new adventure gear?

Firstly, he loved the feel of the Didriksons Bawal Jacket.  Apparently it feels like a wet-suit.  The jacket kept him warm in the wind, but even when he was running around, he didn’t feel too hot at all.  In his works, the jacket was just perfect.
It’s so easy to move in this Didriksons Bawal Jacket, he didn’t feel at all restricted and it was the perfect outerwear for his beach excavations.

The jacket also washes well, so it’s a hit with me too.  For stockist information and to view the full range of jackets available, I’d pop over to the Didriksons website.
disclosure:  we were sent the item mentioned in exchange for an honest review

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
