Boys’ Powder Lite™ Puffer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket My 12yr old son loves this jacket. He says it keeps him warmer than his Columbia winter coat. I really like the cinched sleeves, as they fit right over gloves. The hood is a tad loose, but if a hat is worn it should fit perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks nice, seems functional Overall good coat. My 13-year old loves the bright colors! It seems warm (hasn't been cold enough here yet to really test it). Sleeves seem too long for the size of the coat. Coat is a bit long overall, too, but I wouldn't go down a size because then it might not fit him for very long.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Coat - Runs small Overall the coat is great. I bought one for my son who is 5. The size chart states an XS fits a 6/7 so I got him that one. Its very tight fitting and I will need to get him a larger size in about a month since kids grow so quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found a great fit I'm 5'3 weight 127lbs slim/fit body, XL size fits me very well. It has taken me a long time to find a good fitting puffer jacket. I tried Men's Small but they look baggy and long on me. Though I do wish they had interior pockets (there's none). Thanks Columbia

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This coat is perfect for mx 10 yr. Old son . I bought a size medium 10-12 and it fits him perfectly. I thought it would run a little bit bigger but it fits comfortably and its ligjtweight yet warm. He loves it! Awesome coat does run a little small but fits my son so if you want extra room ...size up . Thanks Colombia☺

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket This jacket does run very "slim"...no room for layering underneath, but I don't feel there is a need for layering. The jacket has warm fill. No need for it to be super thick. Medium fits my very slim 13 yr old well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from functional and good quality Bought for my son. Wears it almost every day. Fits him well, and so far has stood up to his 3-year-old lifestyle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat My son had a Lands End 3-in-1 coat and it was the most frustrating coat ever. The inner fleece coat sleeves would always hang way out of the outer shell sleeves (like 4 to 5 inches!) and it was hard to get his arms in the fleece and the shell if he was wearing a sweatshirt. Frustrated, I wanted to buy him a different winter coat but one that wasn't so expensive because I had already spent a lot on the other coat. I bought this one and he loves it! It's lightweight but warm, fits great (he's about 4'10" and 85 lbs and he wears a large), and looks great. I'm not sure how warm it will keep him once the January/Febuary sub-zero temps hit, but I'm hoping with a sweatshirt, it will be perfect and he won't have to wrestle with the Land's End mess at all this winter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits to size Loved Material and color its not too bright. I had to return to Large size my son is slim but long arms.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little coat. I purchased this coat for my two boys 5(xs) and my slim 8(s). I always have my boys wear sweaters under them because they aren't very thick. I am ordering a size up for my oldest son because with a sweater under the coat it gets tight. My boys love them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purpose jacket for mild winter weather The jacket's form is straight fitted, so don't expect to wear layers underneath. It is a much thinner jacket than expected, but guess that's why it is called "lite". We bought a heavier jacket for our son for true winter weather, but this jacket is perfect for cold fall days/ mild winter days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm Coat I have a 7 year old son that I bought this for Minnesota winters when it is above 20 degrees. We have yet to see the cold weather, but he complains about how hot it is when he tries it on. He is an average sized slim kid and it fits ok around the body, the sleeves are a bit long, which is ok as he sometimes resists wearing mittens. He is excited to wear it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from product made for thin boys i bought for my son. but if he uses the jacket wearing a thick hoodie it will fit very tight

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my Boys Great coat!!! We live in the midwest and it is cold and wet here. The waterproof shell is great for the rain and wet snow that we have been receiving lately. Plus the coat keeps our boys very warm even though it is not thick.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too small I bought a M (10/12) for my 8 year old who is very slim and when he put it on, the jacket was very snug. It also seems a little too flimsy for a winter coat
