Top 3 Outdoor Picks for Children

Summer is not over yet! As we transition from the dog days of summer into the Fall, check out these 3 must-haves for your young outdoor enthusiasts!

Toddler ZnO Hoodie

Coolibar just knows how to blend comfort, style and sun protection! This darling hoodie for toddlers transitions easily from day to night, and is lightweight enough to be worn as a swim cover-up when beach or poolside, and as a jacket when out of doors late into the summer evening. Bright and cheerful, it is made to match Coolibar’s swim separates as it features patterned lined front pockets and hood. Providing your youngster with full sun coverage, the ZnO SUNTECT® fabric is made with permanently embedded zinc oxide that gives the hoodie a rating of UPF50+! The hoodie is also machine washable and can be tumbled dry.
