Oakiwear: Affordable High Quality Outerwear for Toddlers, Boys & Girls

Oakiwear: A Better & Affordable Solution


The Oakiwear philosophy is “if we truly wish to get kids active again, we need to provide them with the right gear at an affordable price to open the door to new possibilities in outdoor exploration.”

With spring arriving, I start thinking about summer. One thing my kids LOVE to do in the summer is to visit our local water park for water-play. I worry about my kids skin because, like me, they are very very fair and burn easily. We go through SO MUCH sunscreen each year in order to prevent sunburn. Because my boys are so fair, I do not allow them outside without a shirt on. This can get uncomfortable when they are playing in the water, so each year I try to find them a good quality rash guard to help keep them safe while they are playing in the water.


A rash guard is a fitted top designed specifically for being in the water, and helps to prevent against rashes and sunburn. Rash guards can be expensive, and due to their fitted nature they never last us longer than one season (due to growth spurts). So my plan this year was to find a good quality rash guard that was affordable so that the boys would be protected.



Oakiwear has a nice selection of swimwear for kids that include swim trunks and rash guards. With 5 sizes for kids (2T, 3T, 4/5, 6/7 and 8/9), they pretty much cover you from toddler up until about age 10 (depending on the size of your child). For my 7 and 8 year old sons, I picked their largest size (8/9) because Hayden is a bit tall for his age, and Kristopher is average for his age (meaning they both wear a size 8).

  • Unisex Sport Fit: skin-tight, snug body fit
  • UPF UV 50 protection

The Oakiwear swim trunks are really really nice. I love that they run a little big, meaning we will get at least two seasons out of them. The kids love that the trunks come in colours that coordinate with their rash guards, and because we got the boys different colours, there will be no question as to which items belong to whom.
