While many boys’ coats offer wind and waterproof technologies, you can also outfit him with powder skirts, zippered pockets and removable hoods. When shopping for a boys’ jacket, you should consider the activity and climate he’ll be facing:
- A waterproof exterior blocks out the elements, while a wicking inner liner helps move moisture away from his skin , keeping him dry and comfortable as he plays.
- A fleece jacket is a cozy option on a cool fall day, but also works well as a mid-layer under an insulated coat in frigid conditions. Boys’ vests also make for a great mid-layer.
- Zip-in compatible coats offer versatility in various climates, allowing him to remove and add layers when needed.
- Soft shell jackets provide protection in wet weather and slide easily over layers.
- If you live in a very cold climate, look to our wide variety of insulated jackets. From 3-in-1 systems to reversible and down, these coats seal in heat and are also generally water-resistant or waterproof.
- Heading out on a family hike? Look for a jacket that’s easily compressible. These garments provide optimal warmth but can be easily folded or packed before hitting the trail.
- For maximum weather protection, choose a jacket that is completely waterproof with sealed seams. Some boys’ insulated jackets even come with temperature ratings or guidelines.
