No Such Thing As Bad Weather

With the weather in England being more than a little unpredictable, you have to be prepared for everything from wind and rain, to sunshine with a bit of snow, all on the same day sometimes.

Last year, we were sent some Helly Hansen waterproof clothing for the family and some fantastic matching wellies for the children, they haven't left our adventures since. So, when they asked if we'd like some fleeces to try on our glamping adventure holiday last month, we obviously said yes.

The fleece jackets are so toasty and warm, whilst also being light weight and comfortable. Meaning we could all wear them under our waterproof jackets to layer up without looking too much like the Michelin man!

Being lightweight meant that they could be worn instead of a coat or cardigan, perfect for jumping about or digging in the sand. The colours are great for children, my daughter loved her sorbet coloured fleece and my son, being a little more reserved, liked his navy with its light blue piping. With little loop holes for their thumbs, it meant they could keep their sleeves down whilst they explored, meaning no cold wrists.

When combined with the waterproof trousers, I think the fleeces look fantastic and they are so bright and just what you need to get children wearing them.

But it's not just the children who love theirs, I love mine too, the colour is great and the arms are the perfect length, even for my long arms. The perfect finishing touch to an outfit for some rock pooling and cool beach walks, I love the softness and the pink detailing on the zips.


Thank you to Helly Hansen for sending us these fabulous fleeces and keeping us warm on our seaside adventures.

NB: We were sent these fleeces for the purpose of this post, all words and opinions are my own.

    1. It's fab isn't it, as the post title says there is not such thing as bad weather, only bad preparation and the HH stuff makes it so easy to be out and about.

  7. Waterproof clothing is my saviour - we spend time out and about whatever the weather - the brighter the clothing the better in my opinion

    1. Until the Helly team introduced us to their waterproof clothing we didn't go out nearly as much, it just shows us that it's all about being prepared.
