Monkey’s not a great lover of jumpers for some reason, so as the weather is getting colder and the days are darker I need to look at alternatives to keep him warm and cosy. His favourite colour (at the moment anyway) is red so I thought the Didriksons Monte Kid’s Hoodie would go down rather well.
We’re big fans of the Didriksons range of waterproof coats and trousers, but this would be our first experience of more casual clothing. My first impression – wow, that’s soft. The Didriksons Monte Kid’s Hoodie is made of recycled polyester knitted fleece and Monkey loved it instantly.
I love the fact that the hood has poppers so it can be detached, making it the kind of top you could wear under a coat with ease. The zipper has a chin guard, a big hit with Monkey, as he’s never forgiven me for catching his skin in a zip a few years ago! Memory of an elephant my son.
The hoodie has a fitted cut which looks great, and it’s slightly longer at the back, making it the perfect top to wear whilst cycling round the estate.
The quality is great, it washes well at 40 degrees too. It’s lightweight but it’s certainly keeping Monkey warm as he pedals along on his adventures. The pockets offer a two-tone effect to the Didriksons Monte Kid’s Hoodie. We opted for the Flag Red colour, but this hoodie is also available in Navy, Burnt Glow and Peacock.
