The North Face Boy's McMurdo Parka works hard to keep your fast-growing human tornado warm despite his galloping, falling, and rolling around face-first in the snow. Rugged nylon fabric stands up to abuse without cooking your kid—it's breathable and waterproof. On the really cold days, cinch down the removable insulated hood complete with faux-fur trim. Of course, the McMurdo's 550-fill down insulation is some of the best in the business at insulation; not even a Minnesota winter will find its way through that much fluffy down. Tons of pockets provide storage for candy bars, a music player, and lunch money.
