REI Co-op Rainwall

A light, no-nonsense rain jacket for kids

Brand: REI Gear Reviews

Model: Rainwall



Specs

Weight

7oz.

“A godsend” says one parent of this rain jacket, which proved its mettle on drizzly hikes and even rafting trips (when it warmed a soaked five-year-old and ended her shivering). The inset collar delivers excellent wind protection, even when the hood isn’t needed. But once deployed, the hood stays in place thanks to elastic panels on the sides that cinch it around the child’s head—without the need for futzy pull-cords. The breathable fabric proved waterproof during thunderstorms and soggy hikes through dew-soaked grasses. And durability is tops: Three seasons of regular wear resulted in no rips or scuffs.
