Hope someone can help me please. I'm looking for a decent winter jacket for my son who is 7. Must be waterproof and cosy (he really hates the cold!).

We live in the highlands of Scotland and winter seems to have kicked in over the last week or so.

Willing to pay around £75 for one if anyone has any suggestions please?

I've bought this Trespass one for my 4 year old and its very warm and waterproof. Great price on Amazon too. They have other designs as well.

I'd go for one of the higher spec Trespass jackets. They give a waterproof rating on the site. I'm in Scotland too and they've been great.

Something like this one....

We have bought that Trespass ones that are basically ski jackets, they're excellent. For some reason most other brands of padded jackets aren't waterproof - duh! This is the UK where it can be both freezing and soaking on the same day. Don't forget hat and gloves.

Thanks for all your suggestions smile. I will go and have a look.

Lands End are good, and you can often pick up a super bargain in their clearance section. They also regularly have sales on so if you sign up to emails, you'll be informed (I think they were doing a winter coats deal this week?).

DS (8) wears the Boden puffy anoraks, which have served him really well (but there can be a few of them in the playground!).
