Incredibly Warm and Light
on November 20, 2012
I bought this in a medium for a nine year old. It fits great and he loves wearing it. He's someone who likes hoods, and this one is attached so he's happy. It has draw strings in the pockets to cinch it. The cuffs have elastic so no cold air comes in the sleeve. He's mentioned it's his favorite because it's so super light. Doesn't weigh him down like some cheaper brands. My only issue is because it was so expensive and I don't have a front loading washer, I am reluctant for him to wear it to school. And it can't be worn in a wet snow. So he wears it when he goes out on the weekend and we remind him not to scuff the arms on anything. Once a hole gets made in it, the down starts to come out. I guess I would recommend this for an older child, maybe 10 or 12. But it's a lovely jacket and will keep your little one super warm in the winter.
update: I also bought the black in a size large for when he outgrows the medium, and was disappointed to see that the picture of the inside of the hood does NOT match the photo on this website. In case you want to make a different color choice, the inside is black, not yellow as noted. Still a wonderful coat and a huge favorite for my kids.
