Kids' coats

What is the best year round waterproof coat for kids?

When you want the best unpredictable winter weather has to offer, there can be only one: the 3-in-1 Squall®. No other winter coat compares. Feature by feature, let's take a closer look at the king of winter outerwear to better understand what sets the 3-in-1 Squall apart from the rest.

What exactly is a 3-in-1?

How else can you get your child three outerwear pieces in one purchase? One coat that spans the full range of fall, winter, and spring for one price? In a 3-in-1 Squall your child has an insulated jacket (which doubles as the inner lining of the 3-in-1), and a lightweight windproof rain coat (which doubles as the outer shell of the 3-in-1). Zip them together and their forces combine to give your child an insulated waterproof winter coat. What more could a kid need?

Let's talk kids and cold.

Will your child be heading out an epic hike to the tip top of Mount Krumpit this winter? They'll need a coat built to withstand every step of the voyage. The Squall 3-in-1 is designed to keep your child warm even in below zero temps. In a Squall 3-in-1 their imaginations can run wild even longer without the chill setting in to ruin their cold weather fun.

What are "Grow-A-Long" sleeves?

The Squall 3-in-1 has an amazing Grow-A-Long™ feature. This allows the sleeves on the coat to extend up to an inch and a half. Inside the sleeve is a red thread. Just snip the thread and release the sleeve as needed. No more buying a brand new girls winter coat in February that gets used for two weeks and is grown out of by the time winter comes calling again the following year.

Why do I need a waterproof coat for my kids?

When you think of purchasing a boys winter coat, you probably automatically look for something well insulated that will keep them warm through the coldest months of the year. Buying a winter coat that is waterproof may not cross your mind until the first time they walk home from the bus stop soaked and shivering during a wet, heavy snowstorm, with flakes big enough to catch on their tongues (that's why they took so long getting in the house, mom). The designers of our Squall 3-in-1 know that warmth is hard to come by once your child is cold and wet, which is why the shell uses waterproof fabric, and the inner jacket is made with a water-resistant shell.

Insulated everywhere, including the sleeves.

The Squall 3-in-1 insulates evenly throughout the body as well as the sleeves of both the waterproof shell and the water-resistant inner jacket. Most other coats insulated with a synthetic material use far less insulation in the sleeves than they do in the body of the coat itself. The Squall 3-in-1 sets the bar by offering the same 40-gram insulation in both the body and the sleeves of the shell, as well as 80-gram insulation consistently warming the body and sleeves of the liner.

There you have it, friends. One jacket, three seasons of use. Don't be jealous of the kids, though. Lands' End makes women's winter parkas, too!
