Oh the weather – Kids Rain Coats

Summer is here in New England but it’s hot one day, cool the next and a whole lot of thunderstorms in between. Especially when it’s hot outside but still rainy it’s hard to know what to send kids to school with or for the summer to camp with.  Here are some items that might fit the bill.

Especially for older kids a rain jacket that is not too cute is a must and make sure it’s lightweight and packable for those 80 degree thunderstorm days. I like the Land’s End Girl’s packable navigator rain jacket – well because it’s packable and lightweight.

LL Bean’s trail model rain jacket also packs up too! I like how the taped seams seal out moisture

If you are looking for cutsie rain gear try Mini Boden and their anorak jacket.

There is also a site called kidskiandrain with cute rain sets

The Comfy Kid has great them raincoats and rain sets including the Space Hero Rain Coat, Kidorable Ballerina Rain Coat and of course Lucky Cat Rain Coat!
