Children’s Overpants


4.95 out of 5

We know that children playing outdoors will inevitably find puddles, mud and dirt. That’s why we designed quality, affordable Overpants for babies, toddlers and young children. Our protective over-trousers will keep your little one clean and dry on their outdoor and messy play adventures.


Whether it be playing at the park, preschool or kindy, in the sandpit, helping in the garden or for the budding fisherman Mud Mates Children’s Overpants are just what you need! They are perfect too for keeping crawling babies clothes clean and dry and helping to prevent knee holes in their outfits.

They are a generous fit designed to slip on over your kid’s clothing saving you constant clothing changes and loads of washing, as well as protecting their clothes from wear and tear. Mud Mates protective Overpants are quick and easy to get on and off over your child’s gumboots or shoes.

Our Children’s Overpants are made from the same soft, lightweight yet durable fabric as our Coveralls and Shoe Covers.

With an elasticated waist and elasticated ankles to hold them in place, our Children’s Overpants are water-resistant and water-repellent, machine washable and quick drying.

Make sure you check out our waterproof Fleece Lined Overpants for warmth and extra protection against the elements.

Check out this snippet from a recent review of our Overpants: “Mud Mates have recently changed the fabric of their awesome over-trousers for little ones and I have to say I love how waterproof they now are! Not to mention sand- proof, mud-proof and glue-proof!” Read more here.

    Alana, thanks for such prompt delivery! The overpants are excellent and were in use immediately. We’ll be ordering the next size before too long.

    Great service and prompt delivery of our overpants. A fantastic product with the bonus of reducing our washing for our very active 18 month old over the winter months.

    The new fabric is wonderful. My son has crawled around outside on concrete, sand, grass and of course mud and these make it so easy to keep him clean and dry. A Lifesaver!

    These are fab-well made and comfortable material that doesn’t restrict movement. My toddler went to the snow in a pair and stayed dry and warm. Quick and friendly service too 🙂

    Another product that is perfect for my bum shuffler baby (along with the shoe covers)! A total necessity whenever we visit the park for keeping his clothes both clean and dry. I can let him shuffle around on the grass and play equipment without worrying about him getting cold and wet. Also bought a pair for my toddler for our next trip to go sledding in the snow….

    My little man has just started crawling and these overpants are fantastic for him when he goes outside to stop his clothes getting dirty and worn! Love how they are waterproof too. He loves to go out on the lawn but sometimes it can be a bit damp – these are perfect so he can enjoy himself without me worrying about his clothes. Thank you!

    These overpants are perfect for our younger children who are not yet walking. They can access our outdoor environment without getting their own clothes covered in mud, water and sand!! They are so quick and easy to pop on and go straight in the washing machine after, ready for the next day

    Bought two pairs for our girls 3 and 5 and hit the snow with them….absolutely perfect. They stood up to sliding down the hill on their bottoms many times and no wet butts! Thanks

    I have bought a couple of pairs of the over trousers to use during meal times and they have been fantastic. I was getting sick of all of the clothing changes after each meal every day, with my baby who was learning to feed himself, hence covering himself in food.. These have been great as they just wipe down after each meal and are ready to use again for the next meal.

    Juniper is loving her overpants. She has already been out a heap in our rainy autumn riding bikes and splashing in puddles. We will aim to get the insulated version soon. Great service, affordable price and quick delivery. We highly recommend.

    My great-nephew loves his Overpants, as does his mother. Great for preschool and on the farm. I liked the quality and the good service. Thank you.

    These Overpants are great for my daughter who shuffles along on her bum rather than crawling. She was always getting soaked on the grass but now can happily spend ages outside without getting wet or ruining her clothes.

    These trousers are fabulous. They are easy to put over normal clothing and easy to wipe clean. Very durable as well.
