We spent 23 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. You can't tell kids not to play in the rain — the puddles are just too enticing. You can, however, outfit them in quality jackets, so you don't have a sopping wet child when all is said and done. Naturally, you want some photo-worthy designs that are as cute as the little boy or girl wearing them, so we found options up to those standards as well as more practical choices. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best rain jacket for kids on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 11, 2018:

Since rain doesn't always go hand in hand with freezing temperatures, we included both lightweight and heavier options for various climates. We also considered the habits of kids and added some really flexible choices that little ones can play, jump, and climb in. We rounded up a variety of looks — some more childlike, a few for the mature youngster, and some trendy options.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
