New Rainwear for Kids and Youths

The same lightweight, breathable rainwear worn by Bering Sea crabbers braving mountainous waves, freezing spray and pitching decks is now available for boys and girls ages 2 to 16 – even if all they need to brave are recess rain showers or the inevitable mud puddles encountered walking home from school.

Grundéns USA has added new Weather Watch Jackets and Pants for youngsters to its popular Gage Technical Gear line, combining fully waterproof protection from the elements with superior breathability to prevent active kids from overheating. This special Hi-Vis Yellow Weather Watch rainwear is fashioned from 300-denier Polyester, with an Oxford weave for optimum comfort and durability and fully taped seams to prevent water intrusion in even the strongest storms. This material keeps rain, mist, splashes and spray out while allowing body moisture to escape. In addition, Gage Weather Watch rainwear is very lightweight and packable, meaning youngsters can easily take it along wherever they go – in the city or in the Great Outdoors.

In addition to its naturally bright, Hi-Vis yellow coloring, Gage Weather Watch Jackets and Pants for youngsters feature reflective accents for enhanced visibility. Whether kids are on the water, hiking outdoors, or riding or walking to school, Weather Watch will help them be seen by others in low light and bad weather.

The new Weather Watch Jacket for youngsters features a drop tail adjustable hem, full-sized adjustable hood, full front zipper with double storm flap, and adjustable cuffs to seal out even wind-driven rain. Two large zipper pockets are provided to keep personal items dry and secure. The matching Weather Watch Pants provide leg zippers for easy On/Off (even over boots), a comfortable elasticized waist and Velcro cinch ankles to seal out splashes from even the most ardent puddle-jumpers. Two front zippered pockets and a right leg cargo pocket provide plenty of additional storage.

Grundéns USA offers this new Weather Watch rainwear in a wide range of kids and youth sizes, allowing for the best possible fit. There are four sizes available for kids ages 2 to 8 years old, and five sizes available for youth ages 8 to 16.

As reasonably priced as they are rugged and packable, Gage Weather Watch Jackets and Pants for ages 2-8 carry an MSRP of $48 each. Weather Watch Jackets and Pants for ages 8-16 carry an MSRP of $56 each.
