Over recent years our children’s clothing needs have changed and as such the range available is ever expanding. At an earlier age than ever they can be found out in the field, on shoots alongside Mum and Dad.Clothes need to cater for both the child’s desire to look “the part” and for the parents’ essential requirement that their son or daughter is well protected from the great British weather. The waterproof clothing will now not only keep them dry but the materials are also windproof and breathable. Materials such as the Teratex membrane, offer these features while being lightweight and silent, the sort of features you’d expect from adult’s clothing. Manufacturers understand that children can get themselves in to situations that will really test their clothes and design them to stand up to whatever is thrown at them with the highest level of durability.Better still, at the end of the day it can be thrown in the washing machine, ready for another day’s adventure! Unfortunately such items can be hard to source with only a few manufacturer’s (such as Deerhunter, Seeland and Muddy Puddles) realising the real need for such items and even then being able to find them on the high street can be a challenge………..The details found on children’s clothing are comparable to those found in adult’s wear, with pockets for every occasion, silent camouflage fabrics, adjustable cuffs or hems and detachable hoods for wear in every season.To complete the look accessories are now available in appropriate sizes with wellie boots, the bag to carry them, leggings and gun socks to keep little toes warm. Boys need no longer borrow Dad’s shooting tie as they can now be proud to sport their own. Those that are not specifically into shooting still enjoy the great outdoors, as many parents are more than aware when they come home caked in mud. Here waterproof, washable over-clothing is ideal to protect them head to toe, while they can still wear their favourite items underneath.A great place on the web to get quality shooting clothing is The Country Catalogue. This site has a large selection of shooting wear, and a great selection of the Laksen range.Design also allows for the freedom of movement and comfort that is really a necessity for any active child. Girls are certainly no longer sitting indoors watching their brothers out in the mud but instead can often be found leading the way. Almost all items are designed for both boys and girls and some wellie boots even come in pink, ideal for the fashion conscious country girl! Almost all ages are catered for, so from when they can just walk, up to the transition to adult’s clothing they will always be well dressed.
