Fall who? We've just got one big jacket season—in the Pacific Northwest, the return to school means rain, wind, and maybe even snow (hey, a kid can dream). Here are some cute and practical options for keeping your little ones warm and dry from the mountain to the playground.
Grundens Rain Jacket, Bootyland Local
This hardcore rain jacket is perfect for a young fisherman on deep-sea adventures—or just playing in puddles. Pro-inspired orange and reflective striping means you'll be able to see them from the comfort of the great indoors. Pike/Pine
Core Rain Jacket by Oaki, Chrysanthemum Local

Windbreaker, Little Bipsy Local
Every aspiring fashion icon could use a windbreaker. This locally designed pick from Edmonds-based brand Little Bipsy is a water-resistant year-round staple with a zipper protector for tiny chins, two zippered front pockets (for toys and rocks, probably), and style to boot. Edmonds
Tea Grey Jacket, My Three Little Birds Local
This pre-loved Tea Grey jacket isn't so much for weather protection—it's a stylish piece of back-to-school swag. With statement-making lapels and a School of Rock–approved asymmetrical zip closure, it's a shining example of the unique and sustainable finds available at this local favorite consignment shop.

Kids' Warm Storm Rain Jacket by The North Face, Nordstrom Local
This North Face classic is ideal for PNW adventurers. Warm and breathable, it has a cozy microfleece lining and a waterproof shell that's ready to face the elements—whether those elements are on the trail or in the backyard.
If a one-and-done jacket is the goal, this Columbia number is tough to beat. With a waterproof shell, detachable warm liner, and helmet-compatible hood, it's versatile enough for any cold-weather activities. Extendable cuffs ensure it'll last beyond winter.
Kids' Cirruslite Down Hooded Jacket, Eddie Bauer
Outdoorsy hometown staple Eddie Bauer—literally the inventor of the down coat as we know it—stocks this littler version of its insulated, water-repellent jacket in 10 different colors. If that doesn't get the picky kid seal of approval, we don't know what will.
