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

Best for Rain | Western Chief Raincoat
Western Chief Raincoat’s Rankings
Girls & Boys | Sizes: 2 – 6 years
On the opposite end of the spectrum, the variety of Western Chief raincoats (for girls and boys) blends functional with cutesy – the kind of mix that only a kid could get away with. These coats provide generous coverage with a moisture-wicking exterior and moisture-absorbent lining, and the range of styles that feature Hello Kitty, Batman, Superman, and more also match Western Chief’s popular rain boot collection.
