The snap of mild weather we’ve been experiencing lately is a pleasant reminder that spring really isn’t all that far away. If you haven’t bought your kids’ rain gear for the season yet, now’s the time to beat the rush. Here are some parent-tested, tried and true rain gear options that are perfect for any budget.
Our family absolutely loves these rain suits as they are waterproof and windproof while still being breathable to keep little ones comfortable. They are available in a variety of bold, bright colours up to size 5T, and can be machine-washed for quick and easy cleanups when playtime is over. Cost: $38.99
Another favourite in our house, the rain boots from Joe Fresh are not only affordably priced, but come in a number of super cute patterns and colours for both girls and boys. The tab on the back is great for helping little hands to get them on and off themselves, while the treads on the bottom provide extra grip in wet conditions. Cost: $29
This waterproof rain jacket is PVC-free and comes in adorable prints. It is fully lined to be soft and cozy on your little one, while also keeping them warm on those chillier days. There’s also a child-sized umbrella in matching patterns available, should you want to coordinate their look. Cost: $56
We love these splash pants because the reinforced elastic straps under the feet help to prevent them from bunching up when your child slips into their rubber boots — a frequent source of morning tantrums in our home. They’re also windproof, waterproof, and breathable to keep your child comfortable no matter what Mother Nature has in store. Cost: $29.99
Parents often don’t like spending a ton on rubber boots as chances are your kid will only get one season out of them, which is why Walmart’s options are always a smart choice. They provide waterproof protection in a comfortable fit, and the wide side handles make getting them on and off a cinch. Cost: $15.97
Perfect for tiny feet, these booties are an excellent three-season choice for the littlest walkers, and can be used with an optional liner for year-round protection. The skid-resistant sole is made from recycled materials, while the two adjustable toggles help provide a perfect fit on all children. Cost: $46.99
This rain suit set is great for older kiddos and is made from PVC-free materials. It features reflective strips for increased visibility and comes with pockets to hold your child’s special items. The waist and hems of the pants can be adjusted for the perfect fit, and the jacket is lined for added warmth on chilly days. Cost: $59.99
This umbrella is perfect for kids as the clear covering allows them to easily see where they are going. The bubble shape provides increased protection from the elements, and it even comes with a lifetime warranty! Cost: $19.95
