First, I’m going to tell you that Zapped Outfitters sent me a rain jacket and ball cap to trial and write about so this is a sponsored post. BUT…if you know me AT ALL, you know I don’t promote products unless I love, love, loooooove them.
And Zapped Outfitters?! I will support this company all day, every day.
Why? Because it’s awesome. The Founder is awesome. The clothes are awesome. The products are awesome. The work they do is awesome. And my son actually LOVES their stuff.
So, why am I so excited about his? BECAUSE! Zapped creates cool, hi-vis clothing, reflective backbacks, durable kids reflective shoes and so many more cool products I cannot wait to get my hands on!
Where do I begin to even start to tell you about this stuff?
Hmmmm…okay…last year my son and I were heading to an early-morning hockey practice. It was raining, it was cold, it was pitch black. We were walking through the parking lot in the dreary weather and my son almost got nailed by a truck in said parking lot. It could have been because it was early and the driver hadn’t had his coffee. Or, most likely, it was because my son was wearing a black rain jacket and black pants and the driver didn’t see him.
Holy heart attack city, right? Blech. What an awful feeling. The good news is that he didn’t get smooshed that day.
Since then I’ve been on the lookout for a great jacket with some reflective material. But…my son is SUPER picky. A lot of times kids with anxiety have tactile sensitivities. Things just don’t “feel” right on their body and Owen is definitely a tactile kid. Sleeves are often too tight or too short or the material inside is too insert whatever-tactile-issue here.
So, when I heard about Zapped Outfitters, I thought, “YES! This could be it!”. But, I had my reservations. Because…well…did I mention how picky my kid is?
We received the rain jacket and ball cap in the mail last week. I opened up the package and…HOLY SMOKES…this stuff is niiiiiiice. Like…really, really nice. My son instantly picked up the reflective ball cap and said: “This is now my favorite hat”.
Excuse me, what?
So, then the real test came. I had to get him to try on the jacket. It looks super cool, the reflective material is really interesting and you can’t see it unless a light is shining on it…but fit and how it feels is important to my little man.
He’s worn it every day since we received it. And honestly, the reflective material is SO. COOL. Below is a photo of what the jacket looks like without light on it and then one with my flash, which shows what looks like in the dark when a light shines on it.
So, why do I love this stuff so much? Because, the quality of the product is really, really good, my son actually likes and wears the gear AND it’s soooooo reflective and fun. I live in Victoria, so it’s rain, rain, rain all winter long and this jacket is the BOMB. They also sell reflective backpacks, durable kids shoes and reflective high tops! What?! I know! REFLECTIVE HIGH TOPS! I want some.
Alas…it’s only for the kids.
Anywho…Mamas! You gotta, gotta check out Zapped Outfitters. They’ve literally got your kiddo covered in reflective gear (that doesn’t look reflective unless the light is shining on it) from head to toe. This is such a cool and innovative company, I’m seriously in love.
The best part? I get to share it with you and YOU get 20% off by using LINDSAYGEE20 when you checkout.
So, CLICK HERE, check it all out and then get your kiddo some reflective clothing, hats or shoes. I’m about to get Miss P the high tops…because…doesn’t that just scream Miss P?!
I know that it’s weird to get all excited about clothing and whatever, but if I can make my kid more visible while he’s outside playing, I’m ALL in. Zapped Outfitters’ slogan is “Play hard. Be seen”…so, how could I NOT support and approve this company. I truly adore it.
Let me know what you think if you get some of their stuff! We can have a Zapped Dance party in my backyard and make that reflective gear shiiiiiiiiine!
