We visited Iceland in the last week of October and as soon as we arrived we instantly noticed the temperature drop. I hadn’t known how to pack for Iceland as everyone I spoke to seemed to say something different with regards to autumn/winter temperatures. In the end we faced rain, snow, hail and gales… Proof just how unpredictable Iceland can be! Even when walking around town I had every inch of the boys bundled up.
I’m so glad we ended up packing everything we did (that was one full suitcase!) as it allowed us to be outside as much as possible without the odd rain shower or temperature drop to put us off. The boys just loved it! We’re already big fans of Muddy Puddles, so I knew their winter gear would be just as cosy and durable as their famous waterproofs. For Parker (12 months) most days I dressed him in a vest, a thick romper and finally the super cute raindrop 3 in 1 Scamp Suit which is fully waterproof and breathable. It has a snuggly zip-out fleece, which is super soft and adds that extra layer of warmth during the winter months. I just love the design of this and the fact it can be worn all year round!
Finlay wore thermals most days and his outerwear included the Muddy Puddles Storm Explorer Jacket and Blizzard Salopettes. This jacket is 100% waterproof and is built to withstand whatever the weather! Like the scamp suit it comes with a warm zip out fleece. With the fleece it’s super cosy and perfect for the winter months. However, you can remove it to make it more of a lightweight rain jacket or the fleece can simply be worn on its own. The cute faux fur trim is also removable for washing. I also had Finlay in salopettes, which we used basically everyday. The adjustable brace design helps keeps them up and also looked really cute when layered over his jumper.
All of these items got truly tested in all the elements whilst we were away and we have no complaints whatsoever! They were just brilliant. Here are the boys in their gear during our trip round Iceland’s Golden Circle, the ultimate adventure trail with its waterfalls, geysers and stunning national park. It’s one of the first things we did when we arrived in Iceland, as we couldn’t wait to get out to explore and take in the magnificent scenery that Iceland is famous for.
