Scandinavian clothes have always been popular on the Russian market, as Swedish and Norwegian clothes have a unique style combined with simplicity and functionality. One of the brightest representatives is the Didriksons brand (Sweden), whose jackets, down jackets and overalls have gained immense popularity in Russia, known for its changeable and sometimes very harsh climate. Therefore, everyone who decides to become the owner of warm and at the same time very stylish things should take a closer look at Didriksons products and reviews about it.
What Didriksons clothes are famous for
The history of the brand began back in 1913, when the spouses Anna and Julius Didrikson decided to sew clothes for fishermen working in the harsh conditions of the B altic Sea. The young couple were able to create things that are ideal for sailors - very durable and windproof. A hundred years have passed, a lot has changed, butDidriksons clothes still protect their wearers from rain, wind and cold.
Great selection of clothes for any weather
The range includes hundreds of products for any category of customers. There are a large number of men's, women's and children's collections. The size range is also quite wide: one model can be presented both in the adult product line and in the baby one. Clothing by Didriksons has long ceased to resemble fishermen's clothing and, for all its functionality, retains a unique Scandinavian style and excellent cut.
The main reasons that the clothes of this brand are so fond of buyers was that Didriksons clothes, according to customer reviews, correspond to the declared characteristics: if the jacket says that it is able to keep warm at -30 degrees Celsius, then you can be sure that in severe frosts a person will not experience discomfort. In addition, the use of modern materials in production, such as softshell fabric or durable water repellent, provides additional advantages in the fight against bad weather.
The second advantage of the clothes of the Swedish brand is its functionality. Unlike haute couture clothes, the Didriksons preferred characteristics such as comfort and ergonomics. Everything is made for a person: insulated outer and inner pockets, headphone jacks, drawstrings and Velcro so that you can adjust the hood to the size of the head or the silhouette to the features of the figure,insulated elasticated cuffs keep out wind and snow.
For example, with care for the parental budget, Didriksons children's and teenage clothes are sewn with a “margin” of 3-4 cm so that a high-quality jacket can be worn for several seasons. Therefore, another indisputable advantage of Didriksons clothes is the fact that this is a very profitable investment - at a reasonable price, the buyer receives beautiful and high-quality clothes that do not have to be changed every year. Numerous reviews of Didriksons say that regardless of the amount of time or washes, things still do not lose their properties, and thanks to the simple elegant style, they remain relevant and do not look old-fashioned even after a few years.
Women's jacket - Didriksons Thelma
So, reviews of Didriksons Thelma - the legendary women's demi-season jacket, make every woman dream of it. Ladies note that thanks to the calm minimalist design and the abundance of colors, the jacket fits perfectly on almost any figure. And if you add to this the fact that it really does not get blown and does not get wet even in a very heavy downpour, it becomes clear why it has been re-released many times over the years.
How to choose clothes Didriksons
On the official website, clothes are presented in four target areas: for men, for women, for teenagers and for children. Destinations are divided into product categories.
Four systems of Didriksons functionality
To orderto make it easy for customers to choose a product depending on their own requirements, you can filter the models by belonging to one of the four Didriksons functionality systems:
- STORM system - waterproof clothing. Created using a special technology for impregnating fabric with water-repellent substances and “soldering” the seams. Guarantees maximum protection from any bad weather. Winter options for outerwear with such a mark with a layer of insulation perfectly protect a person from icy wind and frost.
- BREEZE system - windproof clothing. It is equipped with this marking, but although it does not allow air to pass through, it is unlikely to be suitable for extreme winds. Since the clothes are made of breathable materials, they can withstand light rain or wind. Suitable for demi-season models or summer windbreakers.
- THERMAL system - clothing in this category will reliably protect its owner from hypothermia. Usually this marking is found on jackets and pants, which are worn as an additional layer under Didriksons outerwear. This section presents products made of light and functional fleece. Fleece items weigh almost nothing, warm well and dry quickly.
- MOVE system – basic clothing, keeps the body dry and comfortable, does not allow a person to sweat even during active sports. It is very important not to neglect the quality in choosing the right thermal underwear, as a sweaty person will freeze no matter how warm the jacket is.
If you believe the reviews about Didriksons, another plus of the brand is an accurate and detailed size chart. A very wide size range allows buyers not to worry that the jacket will be small. The main thing is to arm yourself with a measuring tape in advance and check the parameters of your body with the manufacturer's dimensional grid.
Didriksons has clear sizing guidelines for their models. So, the manufacturer warns that you should not choose larger outerwear, assuming that you will need to wear several layers of clothing underneath. All the features of the socks, including the use of base layers or the need for the absence of movement-restricting details in sportswear, have already been taken into account when creating the model. But if the measurements are on the "border" of sizes, then it is worth remembering which silhouette is preferable: for a fitted one, it is better to tend to choose a smaller size, for a free one - to a larger one.
Measurements must be taken in accordance with the instructions, where certain symbols are indicated:
- A - chest (Chest).
- B– waist (Waist).
- C– hips (Seat).
- D– Trouser crotch (Inseam).
- E– growth (Body length).

Didriksons baby overalls are great for long walks
A large number of reviews of Didriksons baby overalls can be found on the forums for young mothers. For example, one of the most famous models for active kids from 2 to 6 years old is the Didriksons Bjornen winter overall (from Swedish - "bear cub"), which belongs to the Storm system category and, in combination with a fleece jacket, guarantees a comfortable well-being of the baby even if it is outside -25 °С.

Didriksons Theron Romper
Another very popular Didriksons Theron overall, according to customer reviews, demonstrates similar warming properties (even small children who are not yet very actively moving do not feel cold at -10 and -15 degrees below zero).
Didriksons Smart Growth System, which is activated by unraveling a couple of special internal seams on the legs and sleeves, allows kids to wear Theron overalls for three whole winters. At the same time, as mothers note, after three years of active wear, the overalls look almost new, only the elastic sleeves are covered with spools.
Winter jacket - Didriksons Storlien
For those parents who prefer jackets and pants to overalls, the Didriksons brand has no less warm and comfortable clothes. So, judging by the reviews of the Storlien Didriksons jacket, this is a stylish, but at the same time warm and comfortable option for winter outerwear for children. From wind blowing, the jacket is equipped with a protective skirt, the material does not let wet snow or wind through.

Didriksons biggles zip leggings against moisture and cold
Among other winter items for children, Didriksons also has a wide range of accessories. But not all models are successful. So, according to reviews of Didriksons biggles, leggings have a very “narrow passage” - children often resist and do not want to put on mittens, trying to avoid discomfort. Didriksons biggles mittens with a zipper would be an excellent solution, but the only thing is that the kid will not always be able to fasten it on his own, and in kindergartens this is sometimes the main requirement.

Off-season must-have - Didriksons Slaskeman
Didriksons rubber suits will be a real find from rain and mud for little fidgets. Reviews about Didriksons Slaskeman, a suit consisting of a jacket with a detachable hood and trousers with straps, do not stop on the Internet.
Slaskeman is made of Galon high-tech waterproof material (semi-erythane) and is designed for children from 70 to 140 cm tall. It feels like rubber, stretches well and does not hinder movement. Thanks to additional moisture-repellent impregnation and special technologystitching, the child can literally sit in a puddle, while the mother will be calm about his he alth and appearance.
In order to make the jumpsuit even more versatile, manufacturers have created a model with fairly wide legs and sleeves. The calculation is made that at a temperature of +15 +20 degrees Celsius, the suit can be worn like regular pants and a jacket over a T-shirt, after narrowing the suit with additional buttons along the sleeves and legs, and in autumn and early spring over insulated outerwear.
The Didriksons Slaskeman suit does not require washing - just rinse it in the shower, as the rubber fabric does not absorb dirt. Many Russian mothers went further: they say that it is easier to rinse the suit right on the child after a walk - and there will be less dirt in the hallway, and the child will have fun. Many buyers at first doubted that the thin jumpsuit would remain intact after intensive wear in extreme mode “knees on asph alt, mud or wet ice”, but after a few years they began to analyze reviews of Didriksons clothing in search of another, no less versatile model for a grown child.
