Just because it is getting colder outside does not mean recess is going anywhere. Kids will still be running around outside, getting into all types of mess and wildness. Except they will be doing it in weather that will leave them muddy and cold, that is unless they have the right clothing. While your little boy probably does not need the heaviest parka available, any kid that walks to school, plays outside and does so all year round needs a good jacket. We have a variety of North Face and Polo Ralph Lauren jackets that can grow with your kid, and will keep them warm through the chilly fall rains, icy winter and unpredictable early spring.
Hardshell jackets are great for places with variable weather and are good at taking a beating. The North Face Resolve jacket is a perfect hardshell for an active kid. It is waterproof, breathable and resists stains. A slightly loose fit allows layering under the jacket, making it a perfect choice for cool weather.
In colder climates, a simple shell is not going to do, but a dedicated parka can sometimes seem like a bit of overkill. A down puffer jacket might be just the solution. the North Face Nuptse offers a real down liner with a water resistant outer. It will keep your little one warm without being too big and bulky to actually wear.
