VAUDE Outdoor Kids
Why parents who love nature choose VAUDE children’s products
From day trips to the woods to longer camping trips and other outdoor adventures, VAUDE children’s clothing and products including shoes, rucksacks and sleeping bags make the choice of an active outdoor lifestyle easier – and more sustainable. Here’s how.
As every outdoor enthusiast knows, there’s no such thing as bad weather as long as you are well-equipped. Children’s outdoor clothes should protect from the elements and be easy to care for, and VAUDE’s children’s gear collections tick all the boxes. The easy-care textiles and fast-drying materials of VAUDE’s designs are hugely advantageous in the summer months. Our collections also come with integrated sun protection (UPF 50 as per Australian/New Zealand standards), and in addition, the integrated gaiters or tight-fitted trouser legs offer tick protection to keep the kids safe. Our winter gear is both waterproof and windproof, and padded to keep your little ones warm when the temperature drops. Reflective elements make for improved visibility to keep them safe in the dark too.
At VAUDE, we know that there’s nothing worse than children’s clothing that irritates and gets in the way. That’s why all our garments are tested by the VAUDE nursery, to make sure that we can offer your kids the most comfortable cuts and freedom of movement. Our designs also feature clever solutions such as integrated name tags, because you won’t want to lose your VAUDE products. We make them low-maintenance too, with easy-care, robust materials used for all our designs.
VAUDE’s children’s rucksacks feature easy-to-use buckles and clasps, and the length-adjustable belt and height-adjustable chest strap make sure that the rucksack grows with your child. The side pockets are perfect for children’s little finds and treasures, while reflective elements ensure visibility in the dark.
Our children’s shoes have been developed especially to support natural walking. Designs with Velcro or a fast-lacing system make them easy to put on and take off. Our collection features children’s sleeping bags too, which are length-adjustable and easy to care for.
Sustainably developed and produced
The high quality and durability of VAUDE’s children’s clothing are good for both you and the environment. Our products are versatile and long-lasting thanks to robust, durable materials, and families with more than one child often buy one item and pass it down to younger siblings. Moreover, many coats are designed around a 3-in-1 principle, meaning they can be used all year round.
The trousers, meanwhile, grow with the child thanks to a feature that means that they can be lengthened by up to 3.5cm. Our materials are bluesign certified, which guarantees that they are skin-friendly, non-toxic and resource-saving. The Fair Wear stamp means that you can rest assured that the clothes you buy have been produced under fair working conditions.
VAUDE products last longer
All of the above goes to show that VAUDE children’s products allow for a more sustainable love of the great outdoors. With durable, easy-care products that grow with the child and can be altered to suit different seasons, we can confidently ask our customers to reduce, reuse, repair and recycle – and we offer the support and tips to do so. If you care about the environment as much as we do and want to save a few bob while keeping nature’s best at heart, take note of these useful tips and resources:
• If you don’t want to pass on your VAUDE garments to friends or siblings, you’ll be pleased to hear that our clothes have a great resale value. The VAUDE Second Use Shop on ebay is a great place to start.
• Wear and tear is normal, but there’s very little that can’t be fixed. Most of our children’s products can be repaired using the VAUDE product service.
• Do you have a VAUDE product that’s on its last legs? You can still do good by donating your used items to a clothing collection with social benefit. At VAUDE, we’ve chosen to partner with the umbrella organization FairWertung e.V.
As Germany’s most sustainable brand in 2015, we do our bit for a world worth living in, so that the children of tomorrow can enjoy nature too. You can read more about our commitment to sustainability here.
