There is also a glove loop inside the cuffs.

My Experience of the Didriksons Kure Kids Parka:

 We love this jacket. My son has been wearing it for the last 2 months, and I can see that it is going to be perfect for the winter ahead.

There is plenty of room for layers underneath on cold days and lots of adjustments for a good fit.

The pockets are a good size for filling with conkers and Fenn can get his hands in and out himself.

The only negative thing about this coat is the lack of hood adjustment around the face. There is an adjustment at the back of the head, but it would have been even better with toggles at the neck to bring the hood in. Despite this, the jacket is our favourite and my son is really happy with it.

Fenn is wearing the 3-4 years size and has just turned 3. As you can see on the photos, it is big on him, but it’s going to last him until the end of next year.

This jacket offers great value for money and is an excellent all rounder coat for winter. The adjustments and extendable arms mean this coat won’t be outgrown quickly. I would recommend this coat to everyone.
