Waterproof jackets can be cool or as we like to say, ‘practicool.’ No longer solely the uniform of hikers which is just as well as they’re an essential item in any MotherShoppers wardrobe. With our unpredictable weather it’s safe to say you’ll get your money’s worth cost per wear. And let’s face it, children & umbrellas rarely mix well. Trying to push a buggy/hold a hand/control your child while holding an umbrella is no mean feat.  Plus, hoods are a godsend for fighting the frizz. We aren’t interested in water resistant or repellent nonsense, we want the real deal, the fabric that is going to keep us properly dry when the heavens open.
