This week many schools in the south started their school year on a very soggy note. It seems much of our country is experiencing heavy rains and predictions have called for an unusually intense hurricane season. It would seem prudent that as we are shopping for Back-To-School items that we consider kid-friendly rain gear our kids will actually want to wear
The Boy’s Glennaker Rain Jacket is constructed of waterproof fabric with Omni-Shield water and stain repellent and features elastic cuffs, reflective detailing and great color options. Making this Rain Jacket even more attractive is that it is on sale for only $29.99 at Columbia.
Also on sale for just $19.90 is the Girl’s Rain-Zilla Jacket. Available in 2 colors this jacket features a microfleece lining and waterproof fabric. The attached, adjustable hood, elastic cuffs and reflective detailing will keep her comfortable, safe and dry.
Some days you send your kids off with the sun shining and not a cloud in the bright, blue sky and a little while later those storm clouds roll in. On days like that, the Kids’ Discovery Rain Jacket from L.L. Bean has got you and your child covered. This handy rain jacket is cleverly designed to pack into its own pocket! Just pop this in their backpack and your child will be prepared for those unexpected rain showers.
The Discovery Rain Jacket is fun too! It comes in bright sapphire stripe for girls and bright navy camo for boys. Both jackets are made of waterproof, wind-resistant nylon with a breathable mesh lining that won’t cling to skin. The 3M Scotchlite reflective back triangle and zipper enhance visibility and safety. Jacket is easy to care for and can be machine washed and tumbled dry.
