“Oaki found its roots in 2006 when Sue Simper couldn’t find waders for her twin boys. My boys aren’t twins (they’re 2 years apart) but close in size and I completely understand the frustration with trying to find outdoor gear that fits kids the right way! There is very little that can stop by boys from getting outside to play but I don’t complain because I would much rather have them be active than have them become tv/electronic junkies. Oaki is the place to find rain suits, snow gear, waders and other rain gear for kids up to size 12.”

“We received a Children’s Dry Tyke Rain Jacket and a pair of Children’s Dry Tyke Rain Pants. This summer has been quite a rainy one for us here in Lynchburg but it hasn’t slowed my boys down from getting outdoors. They love getting out in our garden to pick fresh veggies and one of the first things they grab is the rain jacket! It’s 100% waterproof and is made of a tough, rip-stop nylon. The wrists are rubberized neoprene and adjustable to keep water from getting inside. All of the seams are fully-taped to prevent leaks unlike with comparable jackets where once the seams pull apart a bit, you’ll have water seep in. One of the best features of the jacket is the reflective tape on the arms and chest. At Halloween, it seems to rain a lot here so the jacket will be great for the boys to wear if needed. They will be seen and dry – all at the same time!”

“The pants have a Neoprene waste that makes the pants easy to slide on and off – perfect for younger kids who are learning to dress themselves! According to my boys, the waist is extremely comfortable and bends with them through their outdoor activities. It doesn’t pinch or limit mobility. The cuffs at the feet are also made of Neoprene and Velcro – they’re also adjustable! You can tighten them up if the pants are too long for your child or let them hang loose so your child can get the maximum usage of the pants. These pants are lightweight enough to be worn over another pair of pants (think snow play in the winter!) or worn alone for the warmer seasons.”

“Dear Oaki, After our fly fishing trip to Sweden, we would like to say that the waders of Oaki are perfect. Lieselot has been standing in lakes the whole day for a week. Fishing for grayling and trout. The waders are of perfect quality and flexible material. Very easy for kids to put on and to move in. I have been looking for good Kids waders in the Netherlands and could not find any solution, but I am very happy to have found Oaki on the internet. Kind Regards,”

“Thank you Oaki! Hunter’s (my 7 year old) first pair of Waders fit great and were a hit! It made our last trip complete, as he was able to actually ‘join in’ out and about in the creeks and beaver ponds. He was very comfortable walking several miles and we ended up catching about 80 brook trout, getting into places where most could not. I ordered them this past week, and they were shipped the same day, arriving with plenty of time to spare to hit the road! Again, thank you!!!!!!”

“I gave Oaki a shout-out in my most recent blog post about rainy day hiking! Thanks for making such a great product! Here’s the link: http://ow.ly/hvdYJ.”


“Hi Oaki, we are huge fans of your Rain Gear. We love using it for playing in puddles and out taking our dog for walks on the muddy trails behind our house. Our favorite time we wear our suite is when we are out hunting in the Yukon with our Mom and Dad. Thanks Oaki for making such an amazing durable product!”

“You are my new favorite company, seeing as how if there is water, my 21 month old is in it! I am impressed with the quality already, and they will make winter adventures to the beach (which means right into the water) more fun for all of us.”

“I just wanted let you know how happy we are with the Pink Camo Waders and rain jacket we ordered from Oaki. Our daughter, who is nearly 5, loves her waders – the day the order arrived she wore them around the garden, in the sand box, and then decided to test them out and had her friend spray her with the water hose! She was very proud running into the house telling us she was “protected”! Great quality gear, super comfortable and warm. Will definitely order again and have already recommended your site to friends. Thanks again!
