Parents love this reflective coat from Next that helps kids stay safe in the dark


With winter in full swing, the evenings are getting much darker. So it can be easy for parents to worry when they walk home from school.

When it’s dark outside, it can be hard for motorists to spot pedestrians, which is why reflective clothing can be very beneficial at this time of year. But Next have got you covered.

Parents are very impressed with Next’s Fleece Lined Padded Jacket, which is available for ages 3 – 16 years. It’s made with a reflective print and is available in black, camouflage, navy and mustard.

According to Next, the coat is, ‘Made from a heat-sealed fabric, this padded jacket features fleece-lined pockets and a reflective print at the back.’

But it’s the reflective print that’s really impressed shoppers this winter. Speaking about it on Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, one mum wrote, ‘Such a simple idea, why aren’t all kids jackets made like this for the winter, it would save so many lives!’

Reviews on Next’s website have been very positive too, with it receiving 4.5/5 from customers.
