Nipper Skipper Clothing Review

Every week my daughter goes to forest school and every week she comes home covered from head to toe in mud! To save on money I have been sending her in with her brothers old snow suit but after masses of washing it had finally given up and is now no longer waterproof.We needed a new waterproof suit fast and the lovely people at Nipper Skipper came to the rescue.

Nipper Skipper Waterproof

The suit arrived really fast and she spent the whole day with it on. It is really good quality and Lowenna loved the bright pink colour. The detail on it is fab.

Nipper Skipper has lots of different suits to chose from, we went for the Didriksons’ Yuki Kids mainly because it was a two piece which is better for a newly trained toilet users and also because it was bright pink!

‘The Yuki range sits alongside a larger range of performance children’s waterproofs that we have chosen to stock from Didriksons (from Sweden). We chose Didriksons as a brand to promote as we felt they are well made, sensibly priced and above all – they perform!

‘The Yuki set are fully waterproof with all seams taped or welded to ensure total protection, keeping little ones warm and dry. They are also breathable meaning that the wearer won’t get hot and sweaty (and ultimately frustrated and grouchy!) when running about outside.’

Can you tell that she is happy with it?

‘The jacket provides full upper body cover and is made from a 2 layer 100% Nylon Weave  with a waterproof finish. Inside there is a comfy net/taffeta lining. The padded jacket also provides a very good heat level.

The trousers provide full lower body cover and again a very good heat level. This ultimately means that they can sit down in the damp, not feel the cold and get on with whatever it is they are engaged with (sometimes best not to ask!). Just like the jacket, the trousers are taffeta lined, windproof and fully waterproof with taped seams.’

 The best thing about the Nipper Skipper Didriksons Nylon Weave clothing is that they have extendable sizes, so the suit can grow with your child. The system involves a special inside seam in the arms and legs that can be opened to extend approximately one size which means that along with the durability factor the suit should last a lot longer than the average ones.

Forest School

Lowenna went to forest school today wearing her new suit and she came back fairly clean and completely dry.

I’m just hoping that she doesn’t completely trash the suit at forest school so that we can use it on the boat when we launch it next month.

  1. wow they look fabulous, just what you need for mucky wet days! love the bright colour and great that they grow with your child. #triedandtested

    1. I’m really happy with it. I love the fact that it is light weight, breathable and not as cumbersome as the old snow suit that she use to wear. 🙂

  2. Oh wow – my children always come back from forest school covered from head to toe in mud and goodness knows what else. This would be perfect for them! Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

    1. I would defintely recommend their products. I have also been infromed that they will be getting a lot more stock in the next couple of weeks, so there will be even more styles to choose from 🙂

  3. What a fabulous suit, Forest School is my son’s favourite time at nursery, he loves every second of it but I’ve been struggling to find a decent waterproof set for him. I will have to look at these.

  4. Love this! Am currently looking around for a splash suit for Boo as we always have multiple changes when puddles are about! Love that it can extend with your child- what a great idea! Boo will also be going to forest school next year so great to hear that it’s good for that! #TriedTested

    1. I would highly recommend Nipper Skipper! The extending size is a fantastic bonus too. I bet Boo will love forest school, my two do 🙂

  5. Could she look more thrilled with her suit! It looks fantastic! We’re reaching the point of needing new waterproofs for Ben and Chloe so I will bear this in mind!

    1. You should definitely check out the Nipper Skipper range. We are two weeks into using it now and I’m still really happy with it 🙂

I'd love to know what you think...
