Keeping the kids warm and dry with the Kulkija jacket from Reima

Reima Turquoise Coat

The temperature has definitely dropped in the last few days and the kids winter coats have been dug out of the cupboard and freshened up with a wash. Sadly, Eliza’s old Reima coat no longer fits her, but she did get two winters out of it, including a visit to a rather chilly Iceland, where it kept her warm and dry, which is very good going.
