Keeping little explorers warm and dry in the Great British weather is a mean feat — but that's where the best kids' puddle suits come in. 

If your little one loves nothing more than to adventure into the great outdoors, come rain or shine, then the top all-in-ones ensure they can do so whilst staying dry, warm and cosy.  

We know that the best kids' winter boots are great for keeping little toes dry. But with the UK experiencing an average of 800mm to 1,400mm of rainfall a year, puddle suits really are worth diving into. Especially seeing as toddlers and kids are drawn to puddles with a force that's inexplicable to adults. 

Today, many of the best kids' puddle suits are water and windproof, meaning they'll keep toddlers and young children warm, dry and their clothes mud-free whilst they get stuck into playtime outdoors. Keep scrolling to find out our hand-picked options.

What to look for in a puddle suit

There's a lot of choice when it comes to puddle suits, so how do you tell the difference between a good puddle suit and a great one? This is what you should look out for when puddle suit shopping for your little one:

  • Waterproofing
  • Breathable fabrics
  • Taped seams
  • Elasticated cuffs
  • Foot stirrups

It's worth looking out for efficient waterproofing, breathable fabrics with taped seams, elasticated tight cuffs and foot stirrups. Some of the more advanced puddle suits also come with a fabric waterproof rating too. This waterproof rating is measured in millimetres and refers to the pressure at which water is able to press through the fabric. A minimum rainproof rating to look for is 1,500mm, but anything between that and 5,000mm is suitable for everyday wear. For more adventurous excursions, a higher rating of up to 10,000mm is recommended.
