Review & Giveaway: Steve Backshall Mountain Warehouse Collection

mountain warehouse steve backshall review

We live in the rainy North West, so good outdoors gear is a must at this time of year.

Finding decent outdoor clothing for kids that isn’t too utilitarian can be a challenge. When Flea goes on a Scout hike, it’s all I can do to persuade her that a Hollister hoodie and skinny jeans aren’t going to keep her warm and dry.

We were recently invited to try out something from the new children’s winter clothing range from Mountain Warehouse. The range has been created in partnership with uber-explorer Steve Backshall.

Our choice was the Sherpa Youth Jacket, which I thought would be great for when Flea is cycling to school in the rain. Because I’m a mean Mum (apparently) who makes my child ride her bike in all weathers.

Anyway, the coat is fully waterproofed with taped seams. There’s a fleece lining and added insulation for warmth. At £69, it’s not cheap, but this jacket is currently on sale over on the website at just £39.99. That’s a bit of a bargain!

The range isn’t just about coats, though. There are also walking shoes, fleeces and hoodies, along with a really nice day pack that would be ideal for hikes and days out.

I’ve teamed up with Mountain Warehouse to give on Who’s the Mummy reader the chance to win an item of their choosing from the Steve Backshall range – read on for details of how to win!

Steve Backshall Sherpa Youth Jacket

My first impression of this jacket is that it’s really substantial, and very well made.

In terms of sizing, Flea is 11, but we chose the Age 13 coat, as she’ll be wearing it over her school uniform, so needs a bit of extra room.

It fits well, with enough room to wear a blazer underneath. I like that the coat has a little bit of length, so Flea’s got a dry seat on her bike. And we’ve tested it against Lancashire rain, and can confirm it’s waterproof.

Personally, I’d have liked the sleeves to be a little longer. When Flea extends her arms forward, the sleeves don’t quite reach her wrists, but it’s a minor quibble. Maybe Flea has weirdly long arms.

I did really like some of the thoughtful little extra touches. The hood (detachable) is elasticated, so Flea’s hair stays dry. There’s also elastic on the sleeves, so rain doesn’t run up there when Flea’s riding her bike. And it’s a tiny thing but the hook to hang the coat up is also elastic. I mean, seriously, how often do those things snap on other coats??

There are two decent outside pockets and a zip-up pocket on the inside that’s big enough for a phone.

Overall, I thought this was a really nicely made, good quality coat. It’s solid enough that I feel happy it will handle whatever the winter has to throw at us. But the Steve Backshall name means it’s also cool enough that Flea is really happy to wear it.

Win, win!

    When the rain is really heavy my little one strips naked and runs into the garden! He dances naked until he’s physically brought inside. Once inside he’ll beg us to let him back outside because ‘it feels lovely’

    Aha! I so wanted one of their coats for Maddie but her school are so damn strict about colour. It has to be black, or she gets a detention! And the Steve Backshall coats are all such lovely colours! Mine are mostly into their bikes when we’re out during the winter, so decent gloves are in order. Unless you count skiing – that’s their absolute favourite, in which case they need pretty much everything!

He does get to play outside a pre-school though and I know he loves sand and water, but it will be his first Autumn outside, so he’s still finding out what he likes I suppose. He’s so grown up that I forget he’s still only 2 – for a couple of months anyway 🙂

    Casper loves playing in the garden – he has a lovely play house which my Dad made for me when I was little. When the weather is bad I wrap him up in lots of warm clothes and his wellies – he plays out there with the dog for hours!
