The Chichon has won this test for a number of years and I have not heard of anyone having problems with it either. So it appears to be well-proven. It has a waterproof lining and is built to take plenty of use and abuse while offering excellent protection for children heading for rougher terrain. But a full leather upper would be more durable, although as kids grow so fast no doubt this will last long enough. You can spend less money of course if you don’t need this level of performance.

The Brasher Chichon is a well-proven and regular Trail favourite that’s ideal for more adventurous kids heading to the hills. It won ‘Best in Test’.
