View Full Version : Toddler winter jacket?
12-07-2005, 04:24 PM
Hi - can anyone recommend a good website or store to buy a good warm winter jacket for a 2 year old? I'd love to not spend more than $60 if possible. Normally I love Land's End or LL Bean coats, but I waited too long this year and they're sold out of almost everything.
Thanks in advance!

We just bought our son Gap Baby's "The Warmest" Jacket and it seems like ti would be very warm.
You can find it at gap.com. It's $59. Fortunately we had the friend's and family discount card last weekend and saved 30%, but I don't think $60 is too much to know your child will be warm.

I agree with the above poster. Defiantly try the baby gap..I have bought them for my kids over the years and love them..also try old navy they are a bit cheapers as well. (Price wise that is)

FYI - I had my heart set on the LL Bean Katahdin coat, and they were sold out online. So I called the Marlton, NJ LL Bean store, and they had tons, in all the boys colors anyway. I received it in two days, and it's adorable.
You do need to speak directly to the store, and not the call center, where you may get directed if the store is really busy or during off hours. It's not LL Bean policy to ship from their stores, but the Marlton store will do it. My little guy looks adorable in the glacier blue parka, esp with the matching moose hat!

Try ebay as well. You might be able to find what you are looking for.

Children's Place has lots of coats. I got DS a really cute one for $40!

I second Childrens Place. We got DD's coat there (the 3 in 1 coat) and it was only $40. It seems quite warm and I like that she can take off the outer shell if it is warmer out. THis is great for daycare, as it is usually cold in the morning but may warm up to the 60s by the time they go outside. You may have to go to the actual store though, I was looking on their website recently and the selection is pretty sparse. They definitely have more at the store.

I have had good luck with Baby Gap winter coats for the past two years. I also like Hanna Andersson's outerwear: www.hannandersson.com. I got snow pants for Zoe from them.

We have the childplace 3-1 coat from childrens place and I have mixed feelings. I love the versatility but I am finding that it can be more difficult to get a reluctant 2 year old into a coat with a zip in lining then into another kind of coat, but we also find that the sleeves are a bit long for my son and half to be rolled which makes it harder to get him into it. We have to take extra time to pull his hands through. I am hoping that when we combine the coat with the snow bib we will be able to lose the lining on the coat.

I'm not sure if you have a SEARS near you but they carry Lands End and I know the one near me always has stuff. I'm not sure what size you need but I believe they start at 2T carrying the LandEnd line. They stoped carrying the baby line.

We bought our daughter the toddler's windy peak jacket from REI. They don't seem to have much left online, but maybe you can check out one of their stores. www.rei.com (http://www.rei.com)

i have an old navy warm puffy type coat, and it's great. I bought it on ebay-new- for 6 dollars. :D

We got DD an REI jacket at a tag sale for 2 bucks. It's in great shape, fits well, and is nice and warm.

We got DS's at the Children's Place last year.. cost about $45 I think. It's one of those that has the zip out liner that can be used on it's own, along with detachable hood etc.
