5 Tips for Buying a Kids’ Winter Coat Online

 

1.) Decide what your child needs it for.

Some winter coats are designed to be nicer-looking, dressier, or more formal.

Other winter coats for boys and girls are made with the intent of playing outside and have an outer waterproof layer.

And some winter coats are designed specifically for certain winter sports.

While you can get your child any winter coat, you’ll want to choose one that fits their personal needs and makes sense for the situations/places they’ll be wearing it.

 

2.) Consider the length you want in your child’s coat.

Length is an important factor in picking a winter coat.

Some are made longer than others, and this will affect not only the warmth of the coat, but also how well it will work for your child in the situations they are wearing it.

Too long of a winter coat could actually be problematic if they’re tripping over it or it could be a hazard in certain outdoor sports if it’s possible for it to get in the way or get caught on something.

 

3.) Read the ratings & reviews.

When buying anything online, it’s important to read the ratings & reviews.

In this post, all of the coats we link to are on Amazon.

Since we want to recommend high-quality clothing, we only share links to kids winter coats in this post that are rated over 4 stars (at least they were rated high at the time the post was originally published.)

It’s good to read reviews to see what others have to say about the product- what they liked or didn’t like. And this will give you a better idea of if you should get a particular winter coat for your boy or girl.

 

4.) Consider the level of warmth your child’s coat will provide.

People will probably talk about this in at least some of the reviews. But also check out the pictures and the product description. Pay attention to how thick the material is, what it’s made of, and if there are additional layers.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends dressing children in several thinner layers to keep them warmer.

Winter coats are designed with the intent of being warm, but the fact is some are a lot warmer than others, and some are layered more than others.

 

5.) Figure out the best size jacket to get.

If you are buying your child a coat for this year, do you want them to wear it again next winter?

If so, you may want to go a size higher than what your child is now. And in the meantime, it will allow them to fit another layer or 2 underneath to add more warmth, if desired.

Also, certain brands may have sizes that tend to run big or small. This is something often mentioned by reviews, which is another reason to read them.

 

So those are 5 tips for finding the best kids coat, as well as some of the best-rated coats we found online for toddlers and older kids.

 

By getting your child a good quality winter jacket, you will keep them warm and hopefully prevent your child from getting sick.
