About Windproof Jackets and Coats for Kids:
People think that windproofing your children is as easy as windproofing your house, that is, cover them in vinyl siding and problem solved. It turns out that making your kid windproof is even easier than that, and requires fewer nails and less glue. Windproof jackets are great at resisting gusts and can enhance performance when running or cycling.
Making a jacket resist the wind is done through a combination of selecting the right materials for the task as well as engineering those materials in such a fashion that the garment itself is aerodynamic. “But, strange man on the interwebs why do my kids need a windproof jacket? They hardly do any cycling or running.” First of all, cycling and running are easy and enjoyable activities that anyone can do. Second, any time children go outside they encounter the wind, and if yours are outside and their coats only partially resist the wind you run the risk of their jackets acting as miniature kites and lifting your children off the ground, floating them off into the sky like balloons after a visit to the cider mill. Essentially, windproof attire means that you don’t have to attach an anchor to your kids every time they leave the house.
The only disadvantage to outfitting your kids with a windproof jacket is that if you take them to an Earth Wind and Fire concert they will miss out on approximately one third of the experience.
