How To Shop For The Right Winter Coat For Your Child

Posted by WinterKids on Thursday, October 13, 2011

Shopping for your kids’ winter coats for the season can be a daunting task.

Unlike buying smaller items (like socks or hats), purchasing kids winter coats requires research and knowledge about the product before committing to a coat for the season. With so many kids winter coat options out there, how do you know which is best for your son or daughter? Do you splurge and get designer winter coats for kids, or do you live in a warmer climate and simply need a soft fleece jacket for your child in the winter? If you’re undecided about what type of winter coat to buy, we’re here to help you make the ultimate decision of the year!

If your child will be skiing, snowboarding, sledding, or just playing in the snow this winter, we recommend a kids ski jacket or a snowboard jacket. These kids designer winter coats are high-quality and selections are offered from many reputable brands in the ski and snowboard industry, like Spyder, The North Face, Obermeyer, and Burton. These designer winter coats for kids are waterproof and breathable (allowing your child to stay warm and dry when they’re out in the snow!), fully insulated (keeping them toasty warm all day), and include cool features like snack and pass pockets and removable hoods. These kids’ winter coats are the perfect investments to guarantee your child son or daughter has a warm, happy, and fun winter!

If your child needs a coat strictly for running errands with mom and dad on the weekend or for those cold mornings waiting at the bus stop, we recommend kids designer winter coats that are insulated with down. Down insulation makes coats extremely warm, so that when kids are doing everything tasks they can throw on their down coat over their sweater or hoodie and be ready to face winter’s cold weather! However, we remind parents that kids winter coats insulated with down are not typically what a child would wear when they’re skiing or snowboarding down the mountain. Although some brands do create waterproof and breathable down coats, it’s best to stay on the safe side (so you and your family can enjoy your day on the mountain) and purchase a specific ski or snowboard coat for your child’s outdoor winter adventures.

Now that you’ve become familiar with the different types of kids winter coats offered, you can choose a winter coat for your child with confidence knowing that they will be warm and protected from winter’s harshest elements!
