Don't let rain put a damper on his day. Whether he's bike-riding in a drizzle or walking home through an unexpected storm, keep him comfortable and dry in a boys' rain jacket from Macy's. Choosing kids' raincoats can be tricky. Banish your worries and find a boy's raincoat that's perfect for him using these helpful guidelines.
Water-Resistant and Waterproof
There are two main types of boys' rain jackets: water-resistant and waterproof. A boy's waterproof raincoat is impermeable, so he'll stay dry no matter how long the downpour lasts. Water-resistant jackets repel moisture up to a point. This type of raincoat for boys is breathable, comfortable, and generally provides enough protection from the elements.
Get a Great Fit, Then Style It Right
A rain jacket for boys should be tough and ready for whatever adventures come his way. It should fit like other outerwear, with enough room for movement and clothes underneath. Resist the urge to size up too much, though. A rain jacket for boys that's too big will engulf him, making it easier for the rain to get in through the large openings at the cuffs or neckline. Wondering how to style his rainy-day look? Try layering a boys' lightweight rain jacket over T-shirts, sweats, and sneakers. Pair heavier raincoats with sweaters, turtlenecks, jeans, and boots. Sidenote: buy waterproof boots if he's a puddle-jumping enthusiast.
