There’s something magical about kids splashing in the rain – getting soaked to the bone is such fun for them. We’re not sure how adults lose the magic, but maybe if we had raingear as fantastic as the coats and boots from Hatley, getting caught in a downpour would be more fun.
Hatley’s raincoats are brilliantly bright, inside and out. Raincoats with patterns of red ladybugs on lilac ($70) are lined with pink and white striped fleece. Raincoats covered in a riot of colourful chameleons ($75) on blue are lined with bright orange fleece.
There are great white sharks ($75), dinosaurs, prancing horses on shocking pink and sweet pink and red strawberries on white ($75). Most prints have matching umbrellas ($26) and rainboots ($54), or you can mix and match for a crazily bright outfit on a grey day.
There are also splash pants in solid colours, and a few solid coloured coats with contrasting snaps for kids who prefer a colour blocked look to a patterned one.
Hatley raingear comes in sizes from six to 12 months, up to age eight. Shipping to Australia is $21 flat.
