Travel Gear We Use: Travel-friendly Rags to Raches children’s clothing review

Rags to Raches are all about easy on, easy off children’s wear. Started by a mom out of necessity, this brand is now known for comfortable, functional and cute clothes for toddlers. Since Rags are one piece, we thought they’d be good for travel days, so we had our littlest gear tester put them through the test.

Rags to Raches children’s clothing review:

I had heard about Rags clothing from a couple of friends but had never tried any Rags until the opportunity to review.The shipping was quick and when I opened the package I was impressed with the quality of the fabric. The colors were bright; the Rag we tested was tye-dyed with a truck logo. 

When I went to put it on my three-year-old, I realized there are no snaps, buttons, or zippers and was a little perplexed on how to get the neck to stretch over his entire body. He cried out, “Ow this hurts,” then “But these are pajamas.” Once on, however, the neck didn’t appear stretched out because it’s elastic and he said that they were really comfortable. 

He wore his Rag outfit all day and I was really impressed with how active he could be in it.  (My son is slender his pants usually fall down unless they have an adjustable waistband.) During bathroom time, he needs help pulling the neck over his shoulders. (I think this is a learning process.) He did get better at pulling his arms out after wearing it another day and no longer complains about getting it on or off. 

Washing the Rag was easy: it’s just cold water and dry low or hang to dry. I decided to hang dry. There were no wrinkles and it didn’t shrink or lose shape. It folds down really compact and is super convenient for traveling since it’s only one thing to pack instead of two. 

I actually liked it so much I went online and bought another Rag! Shop the Rag collection here.
