What’s warmer that a rainsuit but cooler than a snowsuit? A Super Newt Suit, of course. This snuggly setup is designed for shoulder-season days and wet West Coast winters. DWR treatment and fully taped seams keep little ones dry. Reinforced knees and tried-and-true durable fabric are ready for crawling through puddles and wet sandboxes. Primaloft Black Eco insulation hits the "just right" warmth mark, which means it’s going to be hard to get them to come back inside when playtime is over.
- Shell is abrasion-resistant 200-denier nylon with a polyurethane coating, DWR and fully taped seams to keep little ones dry.
- Reinforced knees and seat add durability.
- Lining is lightweight polyester ripstop.
- Insulated with 100g Primaloft Black Eco for warmth.
- Interior fleece-lined collar provides warmth and comfort.
- Dual front zippers allow for easy on/off and quick diaper access. Zippers have full-coverage storm flaps to keep out the cold.
- Elasticized wrist, ankles and hood keep out drafts.
- Raglan sleeves, articulated knees and a gussetted crotch won't restrict movement.

Fabric waterproof rating
The standard test for waterproof fabrics uses a standing column filled with water. The figures given are the water column height. A rating of 3,500mm or higher can be considered waterproof. The higher the rating, the more durable the waterproof fabric will be over time.
Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.
|Waterproof with fully taped seams|
Fabric active breathability
The rate at which a waterproof breathable fabric expels moisture when the inner surface is moist from perspiration. Values under 8,000g/m2/24h provide low performance, 20,000g/m2/24h provide moderate performance and values over 30,000g/m2/24h provide high performance.
A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
Durable water repellency
Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
