Scandinavian winter overalls

We get the most questions about winter overalls from the Scandinavian brand Didriksons. It is a dozen or so models in total, so it's really easy to get confused. Below is a summary of the properties of each series (the name of the series can be found in the product name each time, e.g. k Didriksons Björnen winter overall in Radiant Purple ).

How do I care for your Scandinavian baby jumpsuit?

In case of staining with mud or paint, wipe the suit with a wet cloth. Reima recommends that the stain on the suit be removed as soon as possible, e.g. by wiping the area with snow. The fabrics are specially designed so as not to absorb stains. Droplets of rain or mud run off the suit and rarely leave traces.

Didriksons or Ducksday winter overalls can be stored like any other winter clothes, both on hangers and on the storage space.

How to wash a winter overall?

You don't have to wash your rain suits too often. If you want to maximize the durability of the Ducksday suit, the manufacturer recommends that you use an additional waterproof spray coating after every three washes. In practice, this means using the spray once every many years. You can buy such sprays in sports and trekking clothing stores or in our section clothes and footwear care products .
