KappAhl's rainwear gets top marks again
The clothes should withstand abrasion, moisture and comfort
KappAhl KAXS rainwear for children gets top marks in the Swedish magazine Råd & Rön’s recent test of rainwear. With an overall rating of 76 out of 100 possible KappAhl’s rainwear positions itself in second place. Last time the rainwear got top grades were in Testfakta’s big test in the spring.
KappAhl has extensive experience in producing garments tailored to children's needs. KAXS rainwear now got top marks for, among others, waterproofing, even stitches, abrasion and withstanding washing.
– Children are active with a lot of play and running in all weather conditions and this places high demands on our design. The clothes should withstand abrasion, moisture and comfort, says Sofia Wallin, Design and Purchasing Manager Children at KappAhl.
KappAhl’s rainwear is made of pu-coated fabric to keep the water away and the children dry.
– Rainwear gives maximum waterproofness. Another very popular option is our functional garments, Kaxs Proxtec, which also releases moisture from the body and breathes.
