When tiny particles of ground coffee get to a high temperature, the coffee forms honeycomb structures. By adding those particles into polyester, Reima’s textile engineers have been able to increase its heat retention capability – just like a cup of hot coffee warms you internally! The small, hollow honeycomb-structured particles in the fabric store heat. Besides storing heat, the textile will decrease the build-up of static electricity in the fabric and prevent the formation of odors.
Reima’s coffee bean shimmer 2-in-1 down jackets start off as vests in the Spring or Autumn, looking good when dressed for example on top of a fleece sweater. The vests quickly become warm winter jackets by simply adding on the sleeves. Reima offers two styles: the slimmer Heiberg for girls and straight cut Beringer for boys with 3 color options each, in sizes 4T - 14Y.
Another product made from the same material is the winter one-piece Honeycomb, which is part of the Reima Newborn Collection, in sizes 0-3 M – 6-12 M. You can use the garment as a sleeping bag for the baby, or easily transform it into an overall with legs – just by closing the genius zip in the leg inseams in two alternate ways.
We’re very proud of all our new innovations and our coffee bean shimmer innovation is no different. We submitted the Beringer and Heiberg jackets to be judged by the National Parenting Product panel and we won! See below to view some of the testimonials from the judges.

What an amazingly crafted jacket. The jacket is water and dirt repellent and you can tell. Just a little drop of water and it bounced right off the jacket. The fabric is amazing and it fits so well. We love the cut of the jacket.
I honestly never heard of Reima before and began reading about it. Learning that it is a Finnish brand, I had comfort knowing that they know how to protect themselves well from the elements. Being in Southern California, cold weather is not an issue, but you do want a quality jacket for the colder seasons or for traveling to frigid destinations.
It looks like it is made well and can take a beating. This is great for children who play rough and toss their jackets around. There were many details considered. It is insulated well and not bulky. It has leather tabs on zippers for easy grasp and control, especially with gloves on. Sizes are made a bit bigger so that there is room to grow. Hoods have some elastics to stay on heads during windy days.
