Tips for summer and sun

  • Children's skin should be protected from ultraviolet rays. Sun-protection outfits are the best choice. It is a good idea to acclimatise to sunny weather slowly. Small babies, however, should be kept in the shade.

  • The head and eyes should be protected in sunny weather: a light summer hat should be worn to avoid sunstroke. Sunglasses are a must because the sun-protection mechanism in the eyes is not fully developed before the age of 25.

  • Bare feet? Only if you are highly familiar with the terrain. Footwear protects the feet from broken glass and stinging bees.

  • Avoid the sun at the hottest time of day, which is between midday and 3pm. Remember to hydrate yourself and the kids.

Let the sun shine not burn

UV protective outfits cool children down and provide protection against the harmful rays of the sun. If a child's skin would burn in 10 minutes without any protection, Reima SunProof outfits enable safe play for 500 minutes – that's more than eight hours... Wow :)! Don't forget swimming shoes – these will protect you from any nasties lurking in the sand.

Tips for cold weather

  • In the winter, dress in layers. As air is the best insulator, make sure the layers aren't too tight.

  • When the temperature drops below +10 °C, it is good to start wearing a light beanie and gloves. As it gets colder, switch to warmer accessories or layer them: wear thin merinowool mittens underneath and make sure to wear socks with wool.

  • Increase the warmth of the layers and outerwear the longer you plan on being outside. The younger the children, the warmer they should be dressed. However, when kids play and move a lot, use lighter layers. Babies in prams need an extra layer of warmth – a sleeping bag or a very warm blanket.

  • How can I know if my child is too cold? The tip of the nose feels very cold, paleness, a blue tinge to the lips and skin, shivering. There is no need to worry if the hands and feet are slightly cold – this is the body's natural way of transferring heat to where it is needed most.

Tips for wind and rain


Remember that wind makes the outdoor temperature feel significantly lower, just looking at the temperature is not enough.

Sudden showers

Water-repellent outerwear is enough for shorter outings. Waterproof shoes guarantee that the feet will stay dry.

Playing in puddles and heavy rain

Puddle-jumpers should wear rain pants or a Reimatec outfit – Reimatec fabrics have unbeatable water-resistance and are also breathable. Rain boots and rain mittens are standard accessories for explorers. A rain hat or the outfit's own hood will keep the head dry.
