Winter is upon us, and soon it’s time to get ready to see some snow. Already, temperatures are dropping and there is a chill in the air. While some individuals may look at next winter season with dread, your kids expect it to be a time of wonder and excitement. After all, what’s more fun than rolling down the hills on a sled, building unlikely snow forts, or creating a whole family of snowmen?
When purchasing a waterproof jacket for your child, consider how outdoorsy your family is. If you like camping or going out for walks whatever the weather, it’s worth investing in a good waterproof jacket that will hold up against frequent use. Here are some of the best winter jackets for your children.
How to Choose the Perfect Jacket to Suit Your Child.
Selecting the best jackets for your kids is tricky. Here are some questions to bear in mind when choosing the best jacket for your kids.
What is your child’s winter jacket going to be used for?
The type of jacket your kid needs for school is very different than the type of coat your kid will need while watching an outdoor football game or sledding in the snow. Also consider whether your child will spend a lot of time walking outdoors. Decide what the winter jacket will mostly be used for, and concentrate on that need.
Our family spends plenty of time walking and playing outdoors, sometimes in exposed places, so I usually concentrate on comfort, wind-proof material, and flexibility.
Is the jacket waterproof or water repellent?
For me, having some degree of water resistant on my children’s main winter jackets is essential. They go out in all weather conditions, and I need to be able to keep them dry if it starts pouring down rain when we are out on one of our walks.
If your kid just needs a jacket for school or short trips to the park in a mild climate, a water-repellent winter jacket will probably be enough. Water resilient layers have been treated with a special coating that will keep kids dry from light showers.
These jackets tend to be cheaper than fully waterproof jackets, but won’t normally stand up to heavy showers.
Does weight matter?
Thick snowsuits and winter jackets, while very warm, can limit your child's movement and make kids uncomfortable. Youngsters may have difficulty moving and walking in thick, heavy jackets.. However, if you plan to be outside for a long time in very cold weather, your kid may need a very thick, warm jackets.
What is the correct size for your child’s winter jacket?
For children, it's unlikely that you'll be able to buy a jacket that can be used for more than one winter -- kids grow fast. You can buy a winter jacket that is a bit large to allow for at least more winter year, just in case, but be sure that the jacket isn’t so big that it reduces your child’s ability to move. When considering winter jackets, keep in mind that your child may wear a thick sweater underneath on especially cold days.

The Helly Hansen Block IT Jacket is one of the best jackets on the marketplace now.
Though this is one of the more costly jackets that we tried, our seven-year-old “specialist” liked this one the best. It keeps kids warm and dry in wet, windy weather, yet it is one of the least heavy coats on the list, and is outstanding in terms of breathability. The hood is removable, the side pockets are zipped, and the jacket features attractive trim.
We rationalized the cost of this jacket because it is versatile enough to be a daily coat as well as a rain jacket.
The Polarn O Pyret Kids Jacket is not cheap, but if you have the kind of kids who enjoy regular outdoor exercise whatever the weather, it is a sensible choice.
This is a wider jacket, which makes it more comfortable for younger children. It is also waterproof and just as sturdy as you would expect. As a result of its sturdiness, it is a little bit heavier and less convenient to add to a backpack.
