About us

We believe...

The best play time is time spent outdoors, where kids are free to learn and explore, and where the very best memories are made. We make outdoor gear that kids want to wear. It’s fun, it’s comfortable, and most important of all, it works.
Our mission is to keep your children warm and dry, whatever the weather may bring. Our passion is to inspire a lifetime of outdoor adventures.
Therm Outdoor

The ethos of Therm is warmth. We design our products to protect against the elements, and provide a warm, dry environment to promote healthy outdoor play and nature education.

We believe an early passion for nature and exposure to the outdoor world instills a certain skillset not available in any classroom. The outdoors is good for the soul, and essential for the growing body and mind. Therm is committed to providing quality clothing that supports your child through their journey of outdoor discovery and adventure.

A happy child is loved, challenged, fulfilled, nurtured, warm.


The company and products

New Zealand owned and designed, Therm is outdoor gear that is made specifically for kids. Not just your day to day playground waterproofs, nor is it extreme element conquering high tech gear; but a unique almagamation of both - something that is so versatile that it can be worn for a multitude of outdoor adventures - whether that adventure is a jump in a muddy puddle, or a snowy day shredding the mountain.

Therm grew from the heart of a snowboarder, so we know the importance of gear that lives up to its reputation in the elements. Combined with 15 years experience in commercial childrenswear design we have created a perfect marriage of both. We put our design emphasis on both aesthetics and functionailty as one - all of our fabrics are lab tested for waterproof rating & breathability.

Our products are developed specifically for kids, and have all of the features and functionalities that outdoor gear needs, with a unique child-like twist - such as patterns that appear in the rain, butterflies and robots that change colour before your eyes. We believe in keeping the magic of childhood alive and making outdoor gear like you haven’t seen before!



Stacey Thompson - Founder & Designer

Stacey’s love for the outdoors started at a young age. Growing up in a semi rural area with her pet kune kune Molly, most afternoons she would be found deep in the bush behind the house building huts amongst the Manuka trees and Toi Toi - reluctantly coming home at dusk for dinner.

As an adult, she spent 6 years basking in the outdoor mecca of British Columbia, Canada, where snowboarding, hiking, and mountain biking are king. 

The concept of Therm grew from this love for the outdoors, combined with a passion and 15 year career in children's wear design. You may have already bought her designs in her early days from Farmers, Postie, or The Warehouse; in addition she has designed for top global retailers such as Mothercare, Next, Debenhams, & New Look.

Stacey thrives on the varied challenges and organised chaos of being a small-business owner, and with her first child expected in August she is looking forward to adding one more job title to the list - Mum!
