I figured it was better to buy a $40 or $50 coat knowing it would last for four years than to buy a $20 coat at Target or Walmart that might last for only two.

And Amber - how many of our former coats have your boys worn?
DS1 wore the orange one for two years, but I had to replace it last year as it took quite a beating on year two. LOL

DS1 then wore the red and blue one for one year and its still just slightly too big for DS2.



I ended up ordering the same squall coats on a big time clearance a couple of years ago(to fit while DS2 was growing into your boys')and those are still in the closet. I think this is the last year for DS2's to fit. Its a powder blue, though and I think I can keep it around for Bbaby.
