Our Customer Photostream – Down on the Farm

We always love to receive your photos of PuddleDucks gear in action. It’s great to see kids having fun outdoors – wrapped up warm and dry in their PuddleDucks waterproofs. We recently received this lovely photo from our customer, Margaret Mary Murphy from Co. Kilkenny of her son out and about with the cows wearing his  fleece-lined waterproof set.  She commented on Twitter “My four year old won’t go farming with out his #puddleducks gear… Thanks for keeping my washing down!”.

Thanks for the photo, Margaret Mary – we love it.

If you have a photo of your kids in their gear that you’d like to share, please send it to us at info@puddleducks.ie, add to our Facebook page or let us know on our Twitter stream.

More PuddleDucks In Action Photos

We always love to receive photos of our gear in action being happily worn by kids in the the great outdoors. Here’s two gorgeous photos we’ve received recently.

The first is from from customer, Janice McKeller. Janice says ” I ordered this set for my grandson some weeks ago and it was given as a Christmas present, it is brilliant! It exceeds all expectations, it was given a real test at Culzean Country Park yesterday. I thought that you would like to see the photos”. Thanks Janice – the photos are fab.

[The waterproof set being worn by Janice’s grandson is the Squiggles Set]

The second photo is a snowy one of gorgeous little George McKenna on the slopes in France, snug and warm in his PuddleDucks gear. And mum Emer’s feedback on the fleece-lined set … “One word: awesome”. Adding “We’re so proud to show off our wee miracle boy in your wonderful clobber! Worth noting too is that under the suit are the Puddleducks long thermals which keep him completely toasty whilst rolling around in the snow (he’s not a walker yet but the kid can really roll!!).” Thanks so much Emer (and George!) – we love the photo and thanks so much for your feedback.

PuddleDucks – Quality by Design

When we started PuddleDucks seven years ago, we scouted around for the best kids waterproof gear from Scandanavia.  We were determined to find waterproofs that would really work and would last. After looking at a number of manufacturers we selected Abeko from Sweden as our supplier of choice.  We liked the look and quality of their gear and were impressed that the children’s clothes were designed specifically for the needs of children.  Abeko’s 60 years of experience in manufacturing rainwear was also reasssuring for our new business as quality was key right for us from the start.  There were cheaper options out there but they simply didn’t compare.  We decided to spend a couple more Euro and go for gear that ‘Does what it says on the tin!’ Looking back, we definitely made the right choice!  And it seems that our customers certainly agree with us.  Over the years we have constantly heard how delighted our customers are with the quality and durability of our gear.  Many customers can’t believe that their first set of waterproofs are still going strong years later having been passed down from one sibling to another!  Here are just some of the comments we’ve recieved from customers about the Abeko waterproofs.

The superb quality of the Abeko gear is not created by accident. Abeko have been manufacturing quality waterproofs in Sweden for over 60 years. They use the very best materials, the best manufacturing processes and carry our rigerous testing on the gear.

The tests are carried our on all the products before they are approved.  New materials, seams, tape systems, welds and construction methods all have to be passed by Abeko Labs to prove their worth. They don’t go easy on the clothing! They scratch it, stretch it, wash it, measure it and cut it before the gear can pass the tests.  They test all their products and ideas. Everything has to be passed by Abeko Labs. Have a look at the photos below of just two of these tests.

So by buying Abeko at PuddleDucks you can be sure that you are buying the best quality waterproofs in the world.
