Whether or not your kid aspires to be the next Sir Edmund Hillary or Dame Ellen MacArthur, as a parent you want to know that your kid’s waterproof jacket is going to keep them dry. Of course, the fact kids always seem to “grow up so quickly” means you don’t want their new raincoat to cost you an arm and a leg if it’s not even going to fit them in eighteen months. You’re also going to want it to be durable due to kids tendency to climb trees, roll around on the floor, and get into all manner of scrapes.
Waterproof jackets for boys and girls vary massively in terms of quality and price, so making sure you buy the right one can be a real minefield. To help you navigate this minefield, we’ve compiled together six of the best raincoats for kids.
Didriksons Hamres Kid’s Jacket
Not only is the Didriksons Hamres jacket for kids 100% waterproof, it’s impressive level of insulation means that it won’t just keep your rascals dry; it’ll keep them warm as well.
The reflective strips on the jacket’s hood, sleeves, and back will greatly increase your child’s visibility, meaning they’ll be much easier to spot wherever your adventure with them takes you.
The chest of this excellent kid’s waterproof jacket has two warm lined pockets. Other useful features on it include an adjustable hem, an adjustable cuff, an adjustable hood (that’s also detachable), an in-built extend size option, a glove security loop and internal elastic cuffs with thumbholes.
