Remember to read the description of the Hummel flight suit before buying.

Breathability: The number indicates how easy it is for the child to get rid of the heat when he or she is wearing the flight suit. A good breathability in a sleepsuit should be around 5,000 g. That's plenty for play and movement on a cold winter's day. Sportswear for high-intensity training, by comparison, should be around 8,000g. However, it should also be mentioned that this is a complex figure and the testing method should always be taken into account.

Water column pressure: The water column pressure is measured by stretching the clothes under a tube, and then seeing how much water you can pour into the tube before they go through. Parents often go for the highest water column pressure, but in fact 3-4,000 mm is plenty to withstand the wet ground or a heavy downpour.

Tracksuit from Hummel

The fly jacket has nice details in the form of detachable hood, wind flap in the sleeves and of course wind - and waterproof.

The breathability is 5,000 g. The figure is an indication of how much body heat can escape through the fabric, so your child won't overheat.

Guide to children's sleepwear: 10 tips

Before you go hunting for the best children's sleepsuit, it's a good idea to get to know what's out there. Perhaps a Hummel children's sleepsuit is the best, but there are certainly many other good sleepsuits on the market in other price ranges.

  • What needs should the flight suit meet?

    Firstly, you need to consider what needs your child's sleeping bag will meet. Think about whether your child is very active or can sit still and play in the sandpit. Whether your child goes to nursery or kindergarten is also important. Older children usually wear their sleepsuit more, so it will probably need to be washed more often than for younger children in a nursery or day-care centre.

  • Is the flight suit suitable for tumble dryers?

    It's especially a good idea to buy a sleepsuit that's suitable for the tumble dryer. This makes it a lot easier to tumble dry the suit so it's ready for the next day's use. Most Hummel children's flight suits can be tumble dried, but always remember to read the description beforehand.

  • Find the right size

    over the winter period while leaving room for extra clothes underneath if needed. The different brands of flight jackets can vary greatly in size, so you may want to use the retailer's measurement chart when choosing your size. However, avoid buying it too big, as it will restrict your child's movement. The popular Hummel flight jackets are generally easy to sell second-hand.

  • Is the flight suit easy to put on and take off?

    Choose a sleepsuit that your child can help you put on. It can make the sour time with the outerwear a little more pleasant if they help themselves. Here it can be an advantage to go for a flight suit with smooth lining in the sleeves, and possibly two zips.

  • Go for a jumpsuit with a fixed offering

    One important thing is to choose a flight suit where the lining stays in the suit when it is taken off. The lining is attached to many models today, but it both makes dressing easier and more comfortable for the child. If the lining is loose, it quickly becomes a hassle for the child to get the sleepsuit on and off.

  • An easy and comfortable zipper

    It's a good idea to choose a flight suit with what's known as an assault on the zipper at the front of the suit. This prevents wind and rain from getting through the zipper. At the same time, it is much more comfortable for the child if the zipper is shielded at the neck collar and thus does not sit and scratch the child.

  • Good reflectors - be seen in the dark

    There are benefits to choosing a reflective sleepsuit, as it increases road safety if your child is wearing clothing that can be seen in the dark. Especially for older children, who may be cycling to and from nursery on their own scooters, or cycling to school, reflectors are very practical. It could just be small reflectors on the sleeves and legs. Fortunately, most flight jackets have reflectors.

  • Therefore, there should be no string in the hood or neckline

    Make sure you choose a sleepsuit for your child that does not have a cord in the hood or neckline. Cords are not recommended as they pose a danger if they are in the neck and hood area and the child is playing by a play structure or climbing a tree, for example.

  • It is practical with a detachable hood

    A hood that can be removed with Velcro or loose snaps, and cannot be closed under the child's chin, is the safest for the child. Most flight suits today have a detachable hood, including a Hummel children's flight suit.

  • Think about the colour choice...

    If you want the jumper to be worn again by little brother/sister, you can go for a neutral colour instead of the more gender-specific colours. Also consider whether the jumper matches the hat and mittens that the child has. For example, the popular Huttelihut hats are a good choice for the beanie.
