Sulivan Boy’s 3 in 1 Waterproof Jacket by Trespass

“It’s so warm!” exclaimed J as I zipped up his new Sulivan Boy’s 3 in 1 Waterproof Jacket. As I have previously mentioned, Trespass has very kindly offered to kit out our J for his first real rambling expedition this summer. The waterproof jacket is one of two fantastic and essential pieces that J will need to start his adventures. The other is this lovely pair of walking boots.

Trespass is well known for their outdoor clothing and equipment. So J’s reaction to the Sulivan jacket should come as no surprise. It looks and feels like a proper grown-up piece of clothing, only in a smaller size.

The jacket has a soft inner fleece layer made with Airtrap material. This is a fabric specially designed by Trespass. It aims to trap heat and stop it leaving the surface of the body, so that there is always a layer of warmth surrounding you at all times. Little wonder then that the child felt warm and cosy inspite of the unseasonably cool spring evening.

The outer waterproof coat is made of Tres-shield, another innovate fabric from Trespass. It is designed to keep out both wind and water, so you are kept dry and comfortable as you walk along rugged paths. The jacket is very practical, in that it has a detachable hood, adjustable cuffs with Velcro fastenings and two zip pockets to store bits and pieces in. Just what a little boy needs when he is out exploring.

There are loops and zip fastenings all around the edges to ensure that the two layers stay together without any clumping and bunching when worn together. This is so important when you are tying to keep a child dry and warm in the great outdoors.

I love the versatility offered by this 3-in-1 jacket. It is perfect for the unpredictable British weather. You can wear just the fleece on cool dry days. You can remove the detachable fleece lining and wear only the outer waterproof coat on warm, rainy days. And for those cold, wet and windy days, you can wear it as a whole ensemble. You can even wear it to school, to the shops, to the park or just about anywhere else.

We had a short break from the rain. So J was able to model his new Sulivan jacket in the garden. As you can see, he is quite the poser. Especially as he is wearing a fleece and coat that look and feel exactly the same as those his parents wear. I really like how the pleasant lighter blue of the waterproof contrasts with the dark grey-blue of the fleece.

J is wearing a size 5/6 in ultramarine. It is a tad big on his nearly 4 year old frame. But J is quite tall for his age, so we chose not to get the size 3/4, but went up a size instead.


J loves his new jacket. He is all set to borrow our walking sticks and tackle a couple of walks. We plan to head to the Lake District later this year, and will be putting all of J’s new gear to the test. Along with our endurance and J’s willingness to walk for more than a couple of miles.

  4. We have this jacket for my daughter and I have the adult one. It's brilliant I love it. I wore it as my winter coat throughout winter as the rainproof part keeps the wind out so well. It's great that the fleece is removable so you can wear it on it's own.

    1. I am so with you on this, Jen. It makes huge sense, given the unpredictable weather.

  12. I also love three in ones, because my boy can never decide if he's hot or cold, not helped by the weather of course!
