❄️Testing our waterproof gear in the snow! 🎿🏔

Last month I decided to capitalise on our brisk wintry days and made plans to head for the snow with friends. For me this also meant we could also do some product testing! Whoop whoop! Tough life, I know 😉

With five children between our two families we crammed the gear into the car and headed for the small town of Turangi, a 4 hour drive from Wellington, where we had accommodation for the next 5 days.

Over the many hours spent on the snowy slopes of Whakapapa, it’s fair to say, our kozikidz‘s Norfolk waterproof pants are awesome for both skiing and snowball fights. I’m totally loving the brilliant orange as well! It was extra useful for spotting your independent skiing children zooming down the hillsides ⛷.

Find them under the Rainwear tab on our website.
