Winter is coming. And it gets cold! But you know what they say, there’s no such thing as cold weather, just inappropriately dressed people. Did someone say that? So while winter coats for kids can get a little pricey, oftentimes they’re worth the investment. Especially for those of us who live in extreme conditions. Whether your kids spend their winter on the slopes skiing and boarding, or prefer low key snowman-building and sledding – a warm, water resistant jacket is important. Not to mention, it’s a necessity for those of us walking to school or waiting for the bus! Our picks below trap the heat inside, keeping them outside. Check out some of our favorites.
