Best Raincoats for Girls

I’ve selected a few of my favourite raincoats for girls below. Staying warm and dry is the key to enjoying the outdoors. There is no point in waiting for a nice day, they can be few and far between in this country! If you make sure you have the right gear then nothing can stop you getting out and about.

Best Raincoats for Boys

A great raincoat should first and foremost be waterproof (!) It should not be precious, there is no point giving a child a raincoat and then spoiling all the fun by not allowing it to get dirty. Once that is wipe-able is ideal. It should be big enough to fit plenty of layers underneath but it should also be small enough to roll up and stick in a bag once the shower passes. A good raincoat should be a fun coat. It should defy the weather and be bright and cheerful.
