INTENDED SPECIFIC END USE
A perfect suitable kids jacket for any outdoor activity such as outdoor adventures, camping, travel and holidays. Easy to bring and suitable for any occasion.
The protective jacket has a safe, detachable hood, and it is very comfortable in use, as the material is elastic, water repellent and also breathable. The protection will stay at a very good level for at least 20 washes. It’s treated with a non-toxic mosquito repellent finish.
Mosquitoes can infect people with serious illnesses. In a mosquito-rich environment, this jacket used with pants made from the same material will cover up most of the skin, leaving less skin to be covered with mosquito repellent lotion. It is nature-friendly and will not harm the mosquitoes or any other insects. The fabric is treated with a mosquito-repellent finish. The active substance therein is a plant extract called geraniol, which comes from the Palmarosa plant. In the finish, geraniol is skin-friendly and non-toxic, safely protecting kids without dangerous chemicals. The finish is a product of the French company Breyner. It is tested to be hypoallergenic and it is Oeko-Tex® approved for all classes.
