It takes a little extra protection to stay warm and toasty on the coldest days of the year. The best boys' winter coats are designed to stand up to the toughest conditions with ease—think rain, snowfall, heavy wind gusts and rapidly plummeting temperatures. Here are 10 styles to keep on your radar for the little gents in your life.
If you're looking for something that is truly built to perform, you don't need to search any further. The Expedition Down Winter Parka is one of the most effective and heavy-duty boys' coats out there. Much more than your average winter coat, it's designed to withstand the coldest temperatures—specifically those between -18° to 17° Fahrenheit. It features a waterproof shell and is insulated with 600-fill power down to keep little ones as warm as possible. It also has thoughtful additions like chest hand warmers and an adjustable waist. It's a perfect outerwear option for the coldest, snowiest days of the year.
When it gets cold outside, the last thing you want to worry about is your child staying comfortable. A boys' coat like a Squall waterproof jacket will help him make the transition from a lightweight fall topper to something more substantial. It's built to handle temperatures between -4° to 27° Fahrenheit and is made with a wind- and waterproof shell and insulated sleeves for maximum comfort on brisk days. A hood ensures that he'll stay dry when the wet stuff starts to fall.
Before you head out on your family vacation, it's important to make sure you have something practical and comfortable for your little one to wear while on the go. A jacket that packs into itself is an exceptional choice! The PrimaLoft® Insulation ThermoPlume® jacket is designed to handle temperatures between 9° to 37°F. The water-resistant topper has a plush quilted shell and packs into its own pocket for easy on-the-go convenience.
A standard fleece jacket can even be lighter than a boys' sweater, but a bonded fleece jacket makes a more substantial alternative that's suitable to wear when it gets truly chilly out there. It offers the practical warmth and comfort of brushed fleece (on both sides!), plus water-resistant panels to ensure he stays dry when he's running around on the playground or playing with friends at school. Best of all, it's extra warm but doesn't add excess bulk.
For areas where snow doesn't accumulate much, a waterproof rain jacket is a sufficient alternative. It's designed to withstand the effects of excessive rain and wind and is built with breathable mesh inside to promote better air circulation and enhanced comfort. Best of all, a boys' rain jacket packs into its own pocket! Pair it with sturdy boots and a pair of boys' jeans or an effortless look that won't constrict his movement while he's running around outside.
Insulation means everything in the wintertime. It's why the Stormer 3-in-1 winter parka is packed with 100 grams of insulation throughout the body and 80 grams in the hood and sleeves. It adds superior warmth, but it won't produce the bulk you might expect of typical winter coats. In fact, this style is perfect precisely because it offers great balance—all the warmth with none of the excess weight that makes it difficult for kids to move around comfortably.
Staying warm through the harshest conditions means covering up from head to toe—you'll need a quality boys' hat, a pair of kids' gloves, a snug scarf and a reliable Expedition Down Winter Bomber. It's easily the right choice if you're seeking something that's both waterproof, soft and as cozy as a sweater. This coat is made with 600-fill power down, which is among the toastiest options out there. A water- and windproof shell keeps him comfortable even when conditions take a nosedive, and with the thoughtful addition of Grow-A-Long™ sleeves, you can trust that he can wear the topper even as he grows!
Built to handle temperatures between -12° to 21°F, a reversible jacket is a great choice for the little boy who doesn't love the heavyweight of a typical winter coat. Paired with comfortable pants for boys, it's an easy choice for a brisk day that requires optimal resistance to both moisture and wind. It's made with a down alternative material—a beloved PrimaLoft® Insulation ThermoPlume®, which provides exceptional comfort without bulk.
Even if your little one already has suitable kids' coats for the season, it's worth investing in an equally practical vest. The vest fills in beautifully on those surprisingly comfortable winter days that don't necessarily demand the warmth of a coat or even a jacket. An insulated vest wears beautifully over a long-sleeve top and makes a nice transitional piece to carry over from fall to winter.
What if you live in an area that is traditionally cold but not quite wet? If you're one of the lucky ones who rarely has to deal with issues like rain and snow, then you'll love outfitting your child in a sherpa fleece jacket. It's built to handle temperatures between 8° to 35°F and is among some of the most comfortable options out there. It feels so good, it could double as a sweater! What better way to ensure they handle whatever the day brings in comfort?
