KEELA For Kids ~ Boulder 3-in-1 Jacket

Out on a wet and windy Dartmoor my grandson Jackson is quite happy, dry and warm in a KEELA Boulder Jacket – Dan, his dad, is wearing a KEELA Ventile Heritage Smock which is also well suited to days on the moor [©MG]

KEELA, who are well known for providing serious outdoor people with an extensive range of clothing, also cater for the up and coming outdoors youth, writes Mike Gormley.

 

As I have been closely involved with young folk exploring the great outdoors for many years, both with my own family and while helping to train others, I fully recognise the need to make sure they are well kitted out.

Kids are soon put off if they get cold and wet but if suitably geared-up they will enjoy life in the outdoors, whatever the weather, and so head on to be the next generation of people that are willing, and able, to get out there and do interesting things for work and for leisure.

 

KEELA (youtube link) also produce a Kids range of kit which mirrors some of their Adult range. Featured here is the Boulder 3-in-1 Jacket, which covers a variety of situations for the young outdoor enthusiast. As it’s name suggests the Boulder has three options; a fleece jacket, a windproof and waterproof jacket and, when both are zipped together, it will form a really cosy waterproof top.

 

This is a fully featured outdoor jacket, with attached volume-adjustable hood and adjustable shockcord hem, so is well able to keep them happy in inclement weather, whether just on the way to school or if out on the hill. In addition to being waterproof and windproof it is also highly breathable and wickable with condensation control.
