DESIGNED TO KEEP KIDS SAFER

ZAPPED reflective fabrics are printed with millions of microscopic glass beads — allowing visibility from up to 500 feet away.

FASHIONABLY RAD DESIGNS

We create stylish everyday essentials that kids love to wear. We know for kids, it’s most important that comfort meets cool, or else they won’t wear it.

DURABILITY AT ITS CORE

With premium fabrics and materials, Zapped gear is built to last. Our focus on practicality and lasting materials mean fewer things in the closet, and less waste on earth.

GENDER NEUTRAL

Safety for our kids knows no bounds. Universal and neutral styling and a range of sizes allows for ALL of our kids to be ready for life’s adventures.

EXCELLENT BAG FOR CYCLISTS

L.H. on Mar 02, 2020

I bought the backpack a year ago. The product is well made and perfect size. I am a bicycle commuter and the reflective material is great for riding in the dark. An excellent bag for cyclists.

ABSOLUTELY LOVES HER BACK PACK

Carrie & Reece ~ Calgary on Aug 20, 2018

My daughter has been using her new zapped back pack all summer to hit the beach, pool, & hang with her friends (she is 6 and very busy :)) . I asked for her thoughts. She’s said she absolutely loves her back pack, how big it is and all the pockets. Her favourite part is that her jacket and backpack “light up”.

AWESOME BACKPACK !!

Jesse on Jan 22, 2018

We bought the zapped backpack for our 6 year old son. He loves it and so do I! The design is professional and well thought out. It is very sturdy and well built; from the tough bottom material to the great zippers, carry handles and comfortable straps. I highly recommend this product and brand, and as a driver I wish more kids were wearing this stuff because it really makes them visible in the dark, but is so much cooler than normal “hi-vis” apparel in the daytime.

LOVE!

on Jan 18, 2021

We bought two, for our boys who are 7 and 9. 100% recommend. They are comfortable, my 7yo adores the lining (so important to him), and I love knowing they are safe walking to school on these dark mornings. Also while neither is a particular fashion fiend, they both think these are so cool, which means they preferentially grab them.

They also do a paper route one late afternoon/week - they were high-vis vests but these really add to the safety. They’re very effective. I’ve already recommended them to my friends!

COOL ENOUGH FOR THE SKATE PARK

Jill ~ Vancouver on Sep 24, 2018

My 12 year-old son is a bit of a fashion hound so finding clothing that is cool enough for the skate park can be a challenge. When he saw the Zapped gear, he begged to incorporate as many pieces as possible into his back to school wardrobe. The fact that each item has reflective components made it even more cool – and safe.

GREAT RAINCOAT

Kendra on Jul 27, 2018

My 13 year old has this jacket and loves it. It’s a perfect go to in spring/fall and rainy weather.

STYLISH AND FUNCTIONAL

VT ~ Vancouver, BC on Feb 07, 2018

My 5yr old loves his rain jacket, especially the reflective feature. This jacket is stylish and functional – what more can a parent want.

THE ONLY SHOE WORN!

on Apr 09, 2021

My daughter doesn’t want to wear anything else. Durable, stylish and fun to wear. I wish there were adult sizes!

TOUGH AND STYLISH

Joanne ~ Kamloops, BC on May 01, 2019

We were fortunate enough to come across your shoes on a trip to Whistler. I am so happy that we can order them online :) We love the shoes, they are tough and stylish and lasted very well.

Thanks again.

DURABLE IS KEY.

Kathryn ~ Toronto on Sep 24, 2018

The slip on shoes have a rugged rubber toe cap and a reinforced heel for durability. We parents all know that we don’t want to be buying new kids shoes and clothing ALL THE TIME, so durable is key here. And because they are slip ons, she can get them on fast and be out the door, hanging with her friends before I can sing a cheesy song to her :)

NICE

MB on Aug 01, 2020

Super Cool, light weight and love the 5-panel design. Great for summer camping.

LIKE…REALLY, REALLY NICE.

Lindsay ~ Victoria on Sep 24, 2018

I opened up the package and…HOLY SMOKES…this stuff is niiiiiiice. Like…really, really nice. My son instantly picked up the reflective ball cap and said: “This is now my favourite hat”.

BRILLIANT DESIGN

Christie on Jan 22, 2018

Super practical, bought both my son and daughter one and both kids LOVE the style of them. I would highly recommend this product and brand for your kids.

Thanks again.

RAD STYLING, WITH PEACE OF MIND FOR PARENTS!

Tiffany Gordon-Wilson on Nov 07, 2017

My daughter (8) and son (4) absolutely love their new reflective ball caps. They already want to know what other gear they can get to match. Looks like I'll be ordering more items soon. Super quality, and such a smart idea, that really does give me as a safety-conscious parent living in a high-traffic area peace of mind. My kids love being outdoors, and now I love that they are illuminated when they are outside in the dark.

SUPER

Enzo on Oct 30, 2017

I wear my hat every day, all day, it's SUPER comfy.

ROCKIN' BACKPACK!

Jolene on Jun 04, 2019

We purchased this backpack and we love it! It's durable, has the perfect amount of pockets and it looks great! Excited that it is also reflective and looking forward to showing it off to our friends in Kindergarten in September! And the clip together straps are a huge bonus for us! Especially with the built in whistle for emergencies! Great idea!

HAPPY KID, HAPPY PARENTS!

Janet Ali on Nov 12, 2020

Searching for a reflective jacket to keep our daughter safe seemed like an impossible task. The jackets we found either had little reflectivity or were of horribly low quality. Anything of good quality with substantial reflective properties made her look like a construction worker, which was decidedly *not* a match for her style sensibility. So when I found Zapped Outfitters and showed her a jacket she loved, I was excited to order it. Once it arrived I was even more impressed, as both the quality and reflectivity are excellent. We were so excited we ordered beanies for the whole family- now we can all be visible when we're out in the dark.

Thanks again.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

Lyn on Nov 18, 2020

My daughter is obsessed with these shoes! She loves that they’re not ‘girly’ and wears them with/without socks comfortably. We both love the reflectiveness. Only issue are the dozens of photos she insist I take with the flash on.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO SACRIFICE STYLE FOR SAFETY.

Stephanie ~ Halifax on Sep 24, 2018

I seriously never thought a waterproof backpack with built-in reflective designs could look so cool! You really don’t have to sacrifice style for safety anymore. My son loves how stylin’ his new big kid backpack is and I love how safe he’ll be!
