Babble Best Kids Jackets of 2011Kids grow out of clothes so quickly it's almost a given that they'll need new items for their wardrobes as the seasons change. To help you out with the winter coat search, we picked the most sensible, stylish, and feature-packed jackets just for kids - some can even work for multiple seasons (if your kid doesn't hit a major growth spurt). Each category includes a range of sizes for boys and girls of all ages, but be sure to check our Readers' Choice section for even more of our favorites. We hope this saves you time on the racks this holiday shopping season! Love your kid's coat and don't see it listed? Tell us about it here! - Michelle Horton

Now this is the ultimate winter-wear jacket to battle the brutal northern winters. Inspired by the U.S. military-issue extreme-weather jackets from the 1950s, this parka is longer than the typical waist-level coats (covering more surface area), and the zipper runs high enough to cover wind-chapped faces. Plus, the fully lined, down-filled poly will keep kids extra warm, even in the coldest temperatures.
