Anyone know where to find a cute, non-vinyl raincoat in size 3T? Online or physical store is fine. Seems like everything we see is vinyl and super plasticky. Any ideas? REI has gortex kids rain gear. laura
We got ours at REI. There are no cute patterns, but frequently nice bright colors. I'd go for a 4-5, roll up the sleeves and it will last for longer. They are pricer than vinyl, but great if you hike or spend lots of time outside. You can usually get one on sale at REI if you time it right. Also check patagonia (patagonia.com) It's the same story about colors/patterns and they are high quality, but unless you hit a great sale, they are very very pricey. Another good source is campmor (campmor.com) let it rain
Have you tried REI? I don't know how cute they are, but they do have all sizes of raincoats in nylon. Try on-line if the store doesn't have what you want. R.K.
I bought my daughter a great one at Hannah's near the top of Solano Avenue. I think it is coated cotton and isn't like that thick vinyl you often see. I often get compliments on it. I know they still carry that brand but you might want to call ahead to make sure they have a selection in your size. anon
