With winter going into full swing, Little Viking was delighted to be sent this fabulous Hatley Reversible Puffer Jacket. Hatley is a Canadian brand started 20 years ago by a husband and wife team in North Hatley. We have long been a fan of the brand, Little Viking has had a couple of their rain coats, so we were excited to try out the reversible puffer.
The first thing to note is the quality, every item is beautifully made and the colours are always lovely and bright. I find their sizing comes up a little big so Little Viking always has room to grow (which most mums will tell you is always a good thing!).
Little Viking chose the polar bear pattern as he loves a book I read to him called “Polar” which my mum read to me when I was little. I love that the coat has a winter theme to it without being “christmassy”. On another note, my mother on seeing the coat and discovering it was reversible said to me “The orange is fab, you could wear it that way if you really needed to be seen like at dusk.” I had never thought about it but yes, its so fabulously bright its perfect for that!
I love that the coat is totally waterproof and has a roll down hood. It is super light but warm and can be easily squashed into any bag if needed, I find a lot of winter coats very heavy and bulky. Despite being lightweight, it certainly keeps Little Viking warm. We spent the whole day on the farm in the cold winter weather and he insisted on staying outside!
The international clothing brand and longtime favourite of celebrity children such as Suri Cruise, Seraphina Affleck and Apple Martin, has just announced the launch of their first UK store in London’s Chiswick High Road as well as the launch of their new UK website. Though Hatley products are carried by thousands of retailers in over 30 countries, including Harrods, Selfridges and John Lewis, the new London location marks the company’s first ever stand-alone store in the U.K.
We cannot wait to see what SS16 brings along, hopefully by then we will be able to try some of the beautiful girl range they have for Mini Viking too!!!
