One Step Ahead was founded in 1989 by two parents, Karen and Ian Scott, who wanted the best products for their own kids - and a smarter, easier way to find them. Since then, times may have changed, but the guiding principle remains unchanged. In 2013, One Step Ahead joined the Colony Brands, Inc. group of retailers. Colony Brands, Inc. is a family-owned company that's been in business since 1926. That makes them one of the oldest and most trusted direct marketing companies in the United States and the perfect fit for a family-oriented company like One Step Ahead.
We got the Bug Smarties Jacket With Insect Shield for Callan. This lightweight boys' jacket is a must to wear at dusk! It's sporty, breathable, and comfortable, yet provides proven insect protection for all your warm weather adventures. Thanks to Insect Shield bug repellent technology, it protects against mosquitoes, ticks, and more. Kids' jacket features full length zipper, ribbed bottom, and long raglan sleeves with thumb holes. (The thumb holes aren't just fun to wear: they keep sleeves down and keep insects out.) The repellent is bonded to the fabric fibers and lasts through 70 washes, the expected lifetime of a garment. You can't tell it's there, but the bugs can! Callan enjoys wearing it, and even if the night is not cool enough to require a jacket, this jacket is lightweight enough to keep Callan from getting warm, and from getting bug bites!
