Stylish Autumn Waterproofs

Lighthouse clothing review

We definitely use a lot of waterproofs throughout the year. I mean we do live in Scotland, rain is a given!  But our temperatures vary over the seasons and it’s nice to have something to wear that isn’t going to keep you too warm between spring and autumn.

For winter we tend to have fleece lined coats, that are lovely and cosy, but clearly that is too much at other times of year.  Such as our current cool, but not freezing weather up here makes it too warm for walking around in fleece jackets, but a thinner waterproof over clothes keeps us dry and warm enough whilst walking.

We were sent some gorgeous waterproof coats from Lighthouse Clothing to review and were very impressed.  They are thin enough for spring to autumn, keeping us dry without getting all sweaty like the thicker waterproof coats.

I love the shape and length of the Beachcomber waterproof jacket, it’s a perfect fit and keeps the rain and wind off on cooler autumn days.

The boys have been enjoying adventures in the woods, throwing sticks into a local woodland pond.  There were newts in this pond earlier in the year, but the water has drained off and we haven’t seen many in a while.

We also had another bike ride up to a local view point, where we had fun watching a combine in a field, racing around being monsters and staring at the gorgeous view of the mountains.

The boys love their Skipper jackets too and find them particularly comfortable and love the designs.  The hoods are a good size too, big enough without going over their eyes.

The pockets are perfect for little hands to open and close and store their finds on walks, we’re still looking for conkers, but hopefully will find some soon to fill our pockets with!

What do you look for in a good waterproof jacket?

    They look lovely, I love the bright colours and Autumn coats must have a conker pocket!!

    These look great; just the sort of thing my kids would love. Apart from good waterproof qualities and decent sized pockets, we also make sure that our kids`jackets have adjustable cuffs and some built-in reflectors (essential for walking to school in autumn and winter!)

    These waterproof jackets look and sound amazing! I myself am not to bothered about one, but when it comes to my girls it’s definitely something I’m willing to get them. However I always struggling to find a good waterproof with a lovely design. To me they are few and far between. Love the looks of these ones though.xx #Whateverthewearther

    Oh those are gorgeous waterproofs! You can never have too many waterproof jackets for kids can you? We need to get some more because they currently only have one each and they’re always getting muddy or being left at school or nursery!

    They look fab! I love stocking up on weather proof clothing…”there’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing” can’t remember who said it but it is very true! #whatevertheweather

    A good waterproof jacket is a must. We like ones that fold up nice and small to carry round in our bags too. Yours look great and I really love the pattern design on the boys jackets. I think my kids would love them.

    These look really practical, and I love the bright colours and designs. My kids really like being able to fasten their jacket zips all by themselves, and pockets are a must for nature walks and the associated treasures they find! #whatevertheweather

    I love these waterproofs! I live in Yorkshire, and we often have wet weather so I’m always out and about in my waterproof coat too. They look a nice length too – I don’t like coats which are too short and ride up when you sit down. Love the photos of your kids having fun outside too. #Whatevertheweather

    Oh I love yellow and your jacket is beautiful-who knew you could ever say that about a Mac!! I also love the one with boats. I will be looking here next time we need new 🙂

    Lovely jackets, I especially like yours although the boats are a pretty cute design too. I think waterproofs, as well as other outdoor clothing, are essential items and something that you can never have too much of. Especially for my daughter who seems to love sitting in puddles! #whatevertheweather

    They are all fab, I particularly like how bright they are and the cool designs on the boys jackets. I really should get myself sorted with some decent waterproofs before too long!

    These look amazing! Lighthouse Clothing do such beautiful jackets, I really love the colours on these. We spend a fair bit of time outdoors so always try and find some new brands to test so it was nice to hear about your experience:)
