This classic was first introduced in 2014, by the name ‘Taag’. Now called Sydkap after the small Arctic town in Greenland, it has been a top seller every year. We’ve lovingly adapted it over time, adding tiny touches of genius to make it more functional, more durable and more stylish.
The design has been inspired by the distinctive style of our 1970’s kids wear. Big contrast-color zippers and large patch pockets were all the rage 50 years ago, so we brought them back. But it’s not just its iconic design which makes the Sydkap so well-loved, it’s also small details such as the soft material on the hood and cuffs, which kids find comfortable.
The shell jacket is breathable and waterproof, also at the seams, meaning your child won’t need a separate raincoat. With all this versatility, we’re confident that kids will be enjoying Sydkap for countless years to come.
‘Naapuri’ is Finnish for neighbor. We named this parka so because in Finland, it’s usual that kids inherit durable and classical clothes, such as this one, from relatives or even from the neighbor’s kids.
Why do we think this classic from the late 1990’s is so special? The waterproof and breathable material and sealed seams make it a true all-weather champion. A less known, yet valuable feature is the life saver loop under the right front pocket flap: you can hang a reflector there to stand out when visibility is low, without piercing the waterproof fabric.
The icing on the cake is the removable faux fur hood that is more than a decoration: it retains warm air around the face, thus diminishing the risk of frost bite.
