Polarn O. Pyret Kid's Outerwear Review and Giveaway

One day prior to our first snowfall of the winter Pierce received a package from Polarn O. Pyret of kid's spring outerwear to review.  The snowbibs that we had for him we picked up at a yard sale, and they had certainly seen better days.  When I opened up the package and saw the beautiful high tech quality in the jacket and trousers we were sent I almost teared up - they are so much nicer than anything else he owns!

Seven inches of snow later, Pierce was thrilled to try on his new gear and take it out for a test run.  The jacket and pants are part of the lighter outergear line, perfect for marginal spring weather.  We used fleece layers underneath and Pierce was perfectly warm.  The Signature Stripe Shell jacket is wind and waterproof.  The bottom of the jacket is adjustable with an internal drawstring, and pre-bent sleeves offer increased mobility.  The cuffs are totally adjustable, and the hood is removable.  The snow was still coming down for some of these pictures, but Pierce stayed completely dry.

The Zip Trousers are also wind and waterproof, with pre-bent knees for mobility and adjustable waist and ankles (so important for my skinny little boy!).  There are elastic loops for under the feet and reflectors show 360 degree visibility.  Pierce did a little sledding.

Then he made snow angels, with no worries about laying straight back in the snow - he was fully protected from any wetness.

He ran up and down hills and all over our land with great joy, thrilled to be out and about in the first snow - the snow he's been dreaming of and longing of and waiting for so patiently.

We even took a bit of a hike down our old logging road, enjoying the sight of heavy snow on saggy tree branches.

Pierce stayed outside much longer than usual in his new gear, and he was thrilled to have the opportunity to review these clothes.  They are specifically designed for high winds and rain, so we look forward to trying them out in other types of weather too.  You can find Polarn O. Pyret on Facebook and Twitter .  From March 8-18, Polarn O. Pyret will be offering 20% off their spring outerwear line.  Their philosophy is to get your kid's outside to play everyday regardless of the weather and this is part of their "Let's Play Outside this Spring" campaign.  You can participate by pledging to get your kids outside every day from March 12-16th.  I hope we'll see you out there!

Want to enter to win some outerwear from Polarn O. Pyret for your child?  Up for grabs is a beautiful high tech child's windfleece jacket, valued at $71.50.  It is windproof and water resistant, with reflectors, thumb holes, and a standing collar.  Color choice will depend on availability.  To enter, click on the 'read more' under my signature!

Looks like some great outerwear! Love that hood!!

I love the insulated wind helmet for baby. My could sure use those up here on this mountain in the windy winters. Not that I'm complaining since we've actually had such a mild winter!

cat said...

Love that outerwear! Pierce looks so cute, too :-)

Such good outerwear and really good looking too. I love the reflector strips. If I had young children I would certainly be ordering from them.

LOVE all of your pictures!

the cuby poet said...

Love to see children out whatever the weather or season. This outer wear looks fabulous. My children had 'puddle jumpers' when they were small and were out all weathers.We don't have much Snow but we do have lots of mud and beaches therefore these type of garments are great. Enjoy this Pierce!

Nicole said...

Looks like he loved it! Looks so comfy too! I love that it also has reflectors on it! yeah.. that's the one thing that popped out to me.. lol

I am sure he was so happy to try it out!

TexWisGirl said...

love the photo of him and the pup w/ the fence zigzagging. great!

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

It looks like he had such a great time! (And his four-legged buddy, too!)

Those windfleece jackets look awesome, by the way. Those would be great for Iowa's fickle late winter/early spring weather.

Valerie said...

I wish this outerwear had been around when Amy was little. It looks like great stuff!!

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

As experienced moms know, outerwear is NOT something to skimp on! Quality matters!

Pierce made a great model for his new duds. It appears he was all about seeing if they lived up to their advertising too!
It's great to see he enjoys being outside having fun and not in front of a computer of game!!
