Kids are mud magnets. Rain jackets and boots are a must-have for kids, and especially for families who thrive in an outdoor lifestyle. So whether your kids are dodging puddles as you run errands or jumping in them as you take a rainy day hike, here are some of my favorite kids rain coats and boots. Plus, I’ve included links to where you can purchase these items on Amazon to make your shopping even more convenient.
Columbia Switchback Rain Jacket
This lightweight, waterproof jacket is great for warm, rainy days. It features a hidden back vent to disperse excess heat while kids are playing and has a stowaway hood.
One downside, is that this jacket is (at the time of this post) not eligible for Amazon Prime. So you may need to wait a few more days, but I think it will be worth the wait! Click here to buy this jacket on Amazon.
Carter’s Baby Girls Her Favorite Rainslicker and Kids’ Nessa Rain Boot
These adorable toddler rain jacket and boots. The jacket is sold in size 12, 18, and 24, and the boots come in toddler sizes 6, 7, and 8. My daughter has this combo, so I can personally attest to its cuteness and functionality. The jacket even has pockets! I love that the velcro on the jacket keeps her from pulling the zipper down and taking it off (because toddlers do things like that). Also, I like that the jacket is lightweight and can be easily folded or stored in my bag when we go out. Both the jacket and boots kept my little one dry, and she loves wearing them. Plus, the boot handles make them easy to slip on, and the tread helps keep her upright on slick surfaces.
