Trespass Ewan Ski Jacket Review

We spend as much time as possible out doing things with Monkey even if its just off to the local park. Being a boy he needs to run and let of steam otherwise it gets a little unbearable so you will find us out most weathers. Now he’s getting older we need a coat which is practical (he’s been known to literally roll around in the mud!), waterproof and warm. Although may of the high street brands/ low end designers offer coats that look the part many fail on the practicality test. So when Trespass contacted me and asked us to review an item off of their website I knew a coat for Monkey would be at the top of our list.

Trespass Ewan Ski Jacket

I chose Trespass Blue ‘Ewan’ Ski Jacket which is waterproof up to 5000mm of water protection, windproof and has taped seams which gives extra protection against leaking. Their website is very user friendly and gives you good visuals of a wide range of children’s coats and jackets, allowing you to filter by size, style and colour.

I would never have thought of buying a ski jacket for him, but after giving this one go for the last couple of weeks I am going to struggle to go back. Monkey opted for blue one since its his favourite colour and loved the fur hood like mummy’s.

When it first arrived I did wonder if it was going to be thick enough but need not have worried as it has something called Coolheat Insulation. Which is a light weight padding that holds in body heat. The fact that its not overly padded means he has more freedom but I don’t need to worry about him not being warm enough.

In addition the coat also has:

  • Snowbreak – I had not come across one of the before but it stops the snow going inside the coat even if the child falls over. Its like a giant elastic band with popper fastenings.
  • Adjustable stud off hood, inducing removable firm trim.
  • 2 zip pockets – you can never have enough pockets for stones, pine cones and coins
  • 1 sleeve zip pocket
  • Elasticated cuff with adjuster – as this was slightly on the large side for Monkey these were very important
  • Inner ID pocket – great if you are using this at school or nursery
  • Machine washable – it is 100% polyester so hard wearing

IMG_4944Overall I am really please with this coat which has been the perfect addition to Monkey’s Winter wardrobe and I will definitely look to buy coats from Trespass in the future.

The only thing I not keen on it the sizing – Monkey is not huge but he’s probably slightly bigger than average so I would have normally brought a 4-5 year old size. However they only offer 3-4 or 5-6. Being practical I opted for the the 5-6 and you will see in the photos its a little too big in the arms. I know we will get lots of wear out of it next year so I don’t have a problem with it but its something to bear in mind when selecting sizes.

The coat has an RRP for £69.99 but at the moment it is currently on sale with a great 37% discount making it £43.99. The coat is also available in black with orange detailing. Trespass have lots of boys ski jackets to choose from, next time Monkey needs a new coat we will definitely be considering them.

SignatureWe were provided with a coat in return for an honest review, all words and opinions are my own.

    We are off skiing in a couple of weeks – that looks like a good coat but yes I do see the sizing issue #TriedTested

    This looks great, I will have to have a look on their website as we struggled to get Mia a suitable coat for the winter this year! She too needs something warm but that she can jump in puddles and climb up things in! 🙂

    Looks lovely – snowbreaks are a must for me in a ski jacket! #triedtested

    We need jackets like those in South Africa… because it doesn’t snow here, our clothing needs waay more insolation. Awesome! #BloggerClubUK

    This looks like a lovely jacket. Sizing is always an issue for us with clothes, my son who’s 6 is so tall and solid I often have to get him the bigger sizes to fit. He’s currently in either 6-7 or 7-8 depending on who makes the clothes. My daughter’s the opposite. She’s so small and even though she’s 1 year old she’s still in 9-12 month clothes haha. Can’t win.

    Looks a great coat. My boys hate the bulkiness of their winter coats, so I need to look for something thinner but still warm next winter #TriedTested

    That looks like an amazing jacket! Love the hood and the bright blue colour! #TriedTested x

    This jacket is fab! I love all the detachable hood and accessories. Perfect not just for our cold winters but when we take out little babes skiing too. My son always comes up a little smaller in sizing, which I suppose isn’t so bad as they can grow into it. My daughter is sometimes a little too big, with her sweet chubby legs. It’s a shame they don’t offer a 4-5 for you

    That looks like a really good coat for winter. I will take a look at their site. Always need a good rain coat !!

  12. February 10, 2016 / 7:42 am

    Such a fab jacket and nice that it doesn’t look over bulky but still very warm to wear #bloggersclub

    I wouldn’t have considered a ski jacket either but looks like a great idea. I have a daughter, but she sounds just like your little boy! We’re out rain or shine so may look into this when she outgrows her current coat. X

    Trespass is such a good make and I have a ski jacket of my own by them and it’s fab. I’m sure once my munchkin is a bit older I’ll definitely be getting him one of these xx #BloggerClubUK

  15. February 10, 2016 / 9:09 am

    This is great, we bought T a Trespass coat a few months ago because it was such an awesome price in the sale but it’s too big now so for next winter really. #bloggerclubuk

  16. February 10, 2016 / 9:36 am

    I love the fact it’s not so bulky as that’s one drawback when you get the warmth. Sounds a really great practical coat… and lots of growing room! #bloggerclubuk

  17. February 10, 2016 / 9:50 am

    Cool heat technology – I’m intrigued I need this for nursery pick ups! Informative review #BloggerClubUK

    It looks like a very smart and practical coat, I especially like the fact that it is not too padded, it avoids the ‘staypuff man’ look.

    I always buy Trespass coats and fleeces for the kids, I think they are great and good value. I like the idea of having the thin insulation, as the more padded coats can seem a little bulky (especially on little kids). Your boy looks lovely and warm in his 🙂

    I used to buy ski jackets for my Munchkins when they were younger – they are incredibly practical, warm and, as you said in your review, not overly bulky. The coat looks gorgeous and I’m sure you’ll get a lot of wear out of it! x #BloggerClubUK

    He looks great it in! Ski jackets are fab – whether you are going skiing or not… But if you are, the snowbreak will come in handy. With the reduction it’s a great price! Not heard of the brand before so good to be aware #bloggerclubuk

  22. February 10, 2016 / 1:36 pm

    We have just reviewed a Trespass jacket for my other half and I think they are such fantastic quality. I will certainly be checking the site out for winter coats for my children for next year. I would never have thought to buy a ski jacket before but it looks so warm and perfect for winter, I love the colour too xx

    This looks like a great coat for the winter, love the colours, the inside of the hood is very funky! We love Trespass, their coats are always so well made and great value!

    Looks like a really nice jacket, I have never heard of that brand I will have to check them out. Thanks for sharing for your review and hosting. #bloggerclubuk

    I love getting ski wear for L, at the moment we get the salo’s and jackets as he doesn’t like an all in one but is a very grubby little toddler! I’ll have to check the trespass offerings out. #BloggerClubUK

  26. February 10, 2016 / 3:55 pm

    I love Trespass for the variety of choice, and prices. The sizing would annoy me too. It’s always the missing size that’s the one you need!

  27. February 10, 2016 / 4:15 pm

    I have a Trespass coat and I love it! This one looks really good too. I just bought my daughter a new coat, if not I’d consider one their coats too 🙂 #BloggerClubUK

    My daughter has a Trespass coat for school and it hasn’t failed us in terms of keeping her warm and dry with the weather on the long walk to school, so very much recommended. #bloggerclubUK

  29. February 10, 2016 / 7:06 pm

    That looks like a really practical coat. I’m a big believer in wrapping up and getting out side even when it’s cold.

  30. February 10, 2016 / 7:17 pm

    Not familiar with the brand but I am loving the look of it especially because its not bulky and is warm.

  31. February 10, 2016 / 7:23 pm

    What a gorgeous colour I adore the bluebell shade on him. I know a few people who own Trepass jackets and they say that it is fantastic!

  32. February 10, 2016 / 10:45 pm

    This is such a gorgeous jacket – I love the colour! I have a new Trespass jacket and love it – such great quality. Kaz x

  33. February 10, 2016 / 11:19 pm

    I really like how this coat has an adjustable hood. it looks lovely and snug, perfect for outdoor adventuring #BloggerClubUK

  34. February 11, 2016 / 4:35 am

    The sizing does seem to be a bit daft. It’s almost as if they miss a size. That being said it’s a lovely coat. I love the fact the hood can be removed x

  35. February 11, 2016 / 4:03 pm

    Great review and lovely pics, the colours to this jacket are gorgeous!

    It sounds perfect for the winter. Trespass are great for warm winter coats I think. He’s going to get so much wear out of it

    Looks like a brilliant coat and perfect for a little monkey. I’d definitely recommend the snowbreak – even not in the snow! It keeps you much warmer and keeps any draughts out… I use mine all the time 🙂

    It looks so snug and I love the way it covers the neck properly

    The jacket looks great! I hate when the sizing is labelled like tha, you know 3-4 will be on the small size for a 4 year old and 5-6 on the large size, wish they would just stick to 3,4,5,6 etc! Looks like a lovely jacket and great that it’s so cosy with a lovely furry hood. Thanks so much for linking up your lovely new jacket with #Whatevertheweather 🙂 x

    We’ve had a couple of very cold days out this past week so I think I’d have quite liked this coat for myself nevermind the kids!
    Thanks for sharing your review on #TriedTested this week x

    What a great jacket. We love Trespass so much. I love the colour of this one, it’s so bright! They are so warm and toasty aren’t they? Perfect for rainy, cold, muddy fun! Thank you so much for sharing with #whatevertheweather. xx
