If your like our family and love to adventure outdoors then one thing you will agree with me on is that a great coat is a must. Finding a good quality, warm and durable coat for your little one was a little difficult…until now! Norte are the new brand on the block and have your child covered.

Norte was created by two very creative and smart sisters, Casey a mum of 4 very active youngsters and Amy a spirited Aunty who works in major events in Melbourne. Growing up they were lucky enough to spend countless hours at their family beach house swimming, hiking, surfing, snorkelling and riding their bikes until after dark when their parents would come to find them and call it a night. As kids they were always into surf clothes and as they got older turned their attention to art, design and music. They even have enough instruments between the two of them for an entire classroom (I might bring my recorder for a jam)

 So how did it all begin? As they are a close family they spoke on the phone everyday and many of their conversations began with an excited “hey we should totally do…” and they would both discuss an array of creative ideas. Well one day Casey rang and mentioned how hard it was finding a good quality, trendy and practical jacket for the kids, who like their mum growing up, are often outdoors. Casey had spent countless hours browsing the web and searching through stores trying to find something and then decided that they should make them theirselves! So it started as a thought bubble and before they knew it they were knee deep in ideas and designs and they started work in creating Norte. An exciting time for both sisters to work on a project together and use their creative minds.

The Norte Jacket designs started out with a sketch, they both pictured a “seriously cool and seriously comfy jacket” for the kids. They found inspiration in their childhood love of clothes that were perfect for beach and outdoor use. They had a clear concept in mind that was centred around some of their favourite colours. They then designed some great patterns for the linings which are a unique feature to their jackets and look very stylish with the sleeves rolled back. Apart from looking good they wanted the jacket to be functional, a jacket families could depend on. They are light, they have elasticated sleeves and hoods so they are designed to stay put while the kids play and this also makes it easy to roll the sleeves up. The jackets are made from a high quality, light weight polyester shell with a warm jersey lining. The insulation is a great quality poly insulation which makes the jackets warm without the need to use animal down, something they were both passionate about to avoid. Not only did they create a fantastic Jacket they also have a great range of beanies!

So lately with the crazy weather we have had Brock’s Norte Jacket has not been far from hand. It was easy and light enough to roll up and throw in the nappy bag and when we needed it Brock was snug as a bug and could move freely. The elasticised sleeves were also a massive hit! I hate wet or muddy sleeves and thankfully they stayed in place and didn’t get in the way of his mud patties! I would definitely recommend Norte to all parents out there. I’m also really impressed that such a functional jacket can also look so on trend. Don’t forget if your like us and live in Victoria its never to early or late to have a good coat as the weather down here makes up its own rules.
