Depending on where you live, you may already be dealing with the cold winter air but here in Georgia, it just hit us hard a couple of weeks ago. When it began, I was unprepared and I had no winter coats for kids, gloves, hats, mittens, or anything. Nada. We started our search by asking around to see if anyone had any hand me downs, checked out our local baby consignment shop and finally landed on There, the search continued!

Choosing the best winter coats for kids involves some work. What color does your child like? How warm do you need it to be? How long do you want the coat to last? With all these things in mind, I have put together a brief list of my top picks of winter coats for kids from my top four brands. Check ‘em out!

9 Best Winter Coats For Kids To Keep Them Warm

You may already be dealing with the cold winter air so here is a brief list of my top picks of winter coats for kids from my top four brands.


Girls Squall Jacket

This Squall Jacket is both waterproof and windproof (and it is also fleece lined) making it the perfect jacket to keep your child warm and dry no matter what the day brings! This jacket also features Landsend’s ‘grow along’ adjustable sleeves and snow guard wrist cuffs to keep snow and rain out and warm and cozy in! The Squall jacket is insulated without the puffiness of your typical insulated jacket. A perfect coat to send your kiddo to school in when you don’t know what the weather will hold!

Boys Expedition Parka

This parka is guaranteed to keep your son warm with its 600 fill down! Landsend says its their, “Warmest waterproof” option. My favorite feature of this coat is that it has a “secret”  pocket for gloves and hats or devices.

Toddler Boys Reversible Perito Jacket

Notrh Face thought about its “users” when they made this coat. Most of the  insulation is in body, and less in arms to assure it’s easy to maneuver in, play in and have fun in! Perfect for your little outdoor lover and adventurer. Moms and dads say that it is durable, lightweight and easy to put on. That meets every criteria on my list!


Toddler Girls Metallic Faux Wool Jacket

This coat is the coat that my daughter chose for this winter. It is cozy, layered, and the fabric is VERY toddler friendly. It wears well, hides spills well and is gentle on the skin. Also, the hoodie on this coat has some cute little bear ears- the selling point for my three year old!
