  • I bought my 7 month old a Columbia. I like them best. I know it's expensive for a baby that will just grow out of it. But I think it's appropriate for a cold state. It should last him 2 winters and when he's doneI will donate it to Coats For Kids!

  • I get my kids' coats from used clothing stores. I'm not going to pay full price for something they'll just grow out of by the next winter.

  • My son has had a spyder ski suit the past few years and this year he has a spyder coat also last years coat was from lands end. I think that we have obermeyer ski suits and coats for 3 of my girls and I'm not sure what my oldest has I think Roxy. Ski pants. And an north face coat. She did have an obermeyer coat at one time
    The beauty of the winter wear we have purchased in the past or received as hand me Downs I'd that they last and last and long as they are cared for properly

  • I have always bought Columbia coats for my kids, expensive, but so warm and you really can't kill em. We pass them down.

  • We got our 3 older kids coats at Costco last year (the kind with the removable  fleece jacket inside).  They are almost identicle to the ones the girls had right before that we got at JC Penney.  We handed down one of those to the 4yo.  The kids love them.  They are super warm even without the fleece jacket inside.  I think they were like $30 each.
