    The Wellington boot is a type of boot that was worn and popularized by Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington. This novel “Wellington” boot became a staple of hunting and outdoor wear for the British aristocracy in the early 19th century. Wellington boots were at first made of leather. However in 1852, Charles Goodyear, introduced the wholly waterproof, Wellington-type rubber boot which became an instant success. The lower cost and ease of rubber “Wellington” boot being entirely waterproof, lent itself immediately to being the preferred protective material to leather in all forms of industry. Farmers would be able to come back home with clean, dry feet. Now Wellington boots, almost always simply called rain boots, rubber boots, billy boots, galoshes or gum-boots, are popular in …

  5. KEEP IT UNDER THE HAT

    Keep it under the hat Did you know that increased amounts of body heat escape through our heads when we forget to wear a hat? The secret is finding the right one! Children who move around a lot, tend to keep warm don’t need as much on their heads as children who sit still when they play. Watch how your child plays and feel the back of her neck to determine if it’s warm or cold – that will give you an idea of their body temperature. A thinner cap is best, or a balaclava that also covers part of the face, topped with a windproof cap. Then you can take the windproof cap off to ventilate without exposing the head directly to the cold. …

    Our range of outerwear is designed with warmth and comfort in mind. Layering retains heat, leads moisture away from the body and keeps rain and snow at bay. Add or remove a layer when there is a change in weather or activity levels. LAYER 1 Merino wool or polyester base layers will lock in warmth next to the skin much better than cotton ever will. Good thermal layers should lead cold moisture away from the skin, and wool and polyester do the job perfectly. Look out for our kids thermals designed to look like everyday clothing, not just underwear, so they can do a good job inside and out this winter.
