Great jacket! We got this jacket for our 5 yr old size small fits perfect. Light weight and super warm. December 25, 2014
Great Coat for Kids! I ordered 2 of these coats for my boys and they love them! I was a bit skeptical about how well the Omni-heat would work in a Wyoming winter but my kids never complain about being cold even in -0 temps. They are well made and the Omni-shield works amazing too, my kids are rough on clothes and both of these coats still look new after 2 winters. Money well spent! December 23, 2014
Great ski jacket for a teen I bought these ski jacket for my 13 year old son and he loved it. Its simple lightweight and confortable. He used it today on a cold snowy day in the slopes and didnt complaint about being cold or anything. December 19, 2014
Great all around Jacket runs small so I ordered a size up still fits a little snug but all and all I love material and how little weight it is December 18, 2014
Best Coat My son loves his coat. He likes it cause it's not real bulky. He still stays warm on cold days. We are in Chicago. So it's pretty cold here. I would recommend this if you are looking for a coat that is warm and not so bulky. December 4, 2014
Excellent lightweight jacket I bought this for my 12 year old son and he was shocked this lightweight jacket would keep him warm, but it did! I read the reviews and ordered larger since it stated the jacket runs small. It fits him perfectly! November 29, 2014
Huge Hit....but Very Thin & Small This jacket is for my very fashion conscious, little chunky, almost seven year old. I thought I would hate the blue "tie dye" but the dye is actually very mild and cute. The inside is very shiny but we knew that from the other reviews. My son was so excited when he opened the box, its a big win! We also knew from other reviews that it runs pretty small. My guy is 60lbs and approx 48". He normally wears a sz 7/8 in tops so I hesitantly ordered the 10 /12 with the expectation of him swimming in it and having to pick a different style. Not so! The 10/ 12 runs so small that though it's long for him at the sleeves and waist, he can easily wear it this year and hopefully next . The jacket is VERY thin. We haven't been able to test it for warmth so I'm not sure if this is going to keep him warm in the frigid Michogan temps. I may post another review after be wears it in the cold a few times November 29, 2014
Cute, but strange fit My son is tall and thin. I'm not sure that jacket is constructed for his body type. I looked all over for a length measurement before purchasing this jacket, but couldn't find one. According to the sleeve and width measurements, my son (who fits 5T clothing at the moment) would be swimming in the XXS. Not having that length measurement, I knew that I might be exchanging this for a different size. Upon arrival we found that the length of the jacket is short, and the measurements aren't consistent with the size chart provided. The XXS is 16.6 inches from the base of the hood to the hem. The length from armpit to sleeve cuff is 12.5 inches, and from shoulder seam to cuff is 16.5 inches. The waist around the outside of the jacket (which is fairly thin) is 30 inches. October 25, 2014
Perfect for a picky boy My thin 8 year old who is always cold wore this jacket during a long, cold MA winter last year and never complained of cold. Sometimes we had to remind him to take it off inside, because it was so cosy. It's like a thin, comfy sleeping bag you can wear, but it's so thin it doesn't get in the way, even on the large side. It's water resistant, but as this was all he had, he played in the snow all winter in it. It did get a tad wet on the outside, but dried so quickly it didn't matter. Unless you plan on lying in the snow a lot and then staying outside, this will do as well as any parka. Also: it folds up so small it's great for school cubbies and backpacks. August 22, 2014
Bright Green and warm enough My son loved it as soon as he saw it because of the inside secret pockets, little plastic hooks and the soft material. The Inside has a black-metallic texture and outside is a little bit more grass greener that i expected but still pretty. Its very light and warm and allows him put on only one layer when is snowing outside. We bought S (7/8) and fits fine for my 6yo this year and hopefully also next one. February 23, 2014
color not great the color on this product is much brighter than on the site February 21, 2014
extremely warm and light weight I purchased this coat for my 4 year old son to wear next winter! I bought this coat because I purchased one for myself this winter and I couldn't believe how warm it was. I live in Michigan and we had -40 degree weather this year and my Columbia coat with the omni shield kept me very warm! Its hard to believe that such a thin coat is so warm! I decided to get one for my son because he hates bulky coats and gets cold easily. I will say that the coat runs a bit on the small side. I purchased a size up for myself and ordered my son an xs for next year. He is an average size 4 year old and by next year the coat should fit him perfect! This is an awesome coat for active kids:) February 21, 2014
Cute and warm! Bought it for my son. It was huge on him but I bought bigger on purpose so he can wear it a couple winters. It looks warm and cozy. He liked it and so did I, February 20, 2014
Lightweight but warm My kid loves this jacket. We got him the red one and he says that it is very warm. We recently had temperatures in the teens and he did not complaint about being cold. February 20, 2014
Great jacket!! I bought this jacket for my 8 year old son and he absolutely loves it!! It's so much lighter in weight than his old jacket but keeps him just as warm. I would definitely buy it again! February 19, 2014
To small! I love the Shimmer Me jacket! My 6 year old has had one for two years and it still looks like new after being greatly used. I order a new one for next year, but the sizes are way off! He wore a 6/7, so I ordered an 8. It was way to small. I called customer service. They were great to work with. We thought the jacket may have been missed sized, so they sent me a call tag and I ordered another size 8. Same thing, way to small. By the time I ordered twice, they were sold out. I'm disappointed I didn't get one on sale. I'm going to wait and get the new style in the fall. February 19, 2014
Perfect Does anyone else have trouble getting their kids to wear a winter coat? I used to, not anymore. My son LOVES this jacket. He loves it because it's thin. It is not bulky at all. This mom loves it because it's warm. We live in MN with horrible frigid, below 0 temps on a regular basis for many months. He gladly wears this coat, and I no longer have to worry about him being frozen while standing at the bus stop. Fits true to size. Love the red color. The hood is awesome as well, fitted with a small piece of elastic on each side to keep the cold wind out. A little bonus was the reflective trim on the zipper and hood. Wasn't expecting that but nice feature. My son wears a size 12-14 and the large fit fine....maybe a tad big which I am hoping means he can wear it next year. You won't be disappointed if you buy this coat. February 17, 2014
Good looking jacket Performed wonderfully and the color was exactly what we needed for my son. February 13, 2014
Cyber Green Goof My 11 y/o son chose this jacket online in the Cyber Green color. When he saw it in person, he was disappointed with the shiny fabric on the inside of the jacket, as well as the bright, bright green color - in spite of his insistence on choosing it himself. He also thought it was too puffy, but this is probably because he's not used to wearing jackets, as we currently live in Florida, but are moving to Illinois. Anyway, it is going back. It might be a cute choice for others, but the green, and the shiny interior, was not a hit with him. February 9, 2014
slim jim of cold winter jackets Is great my kid love it !! is not bulky, it fit right with enough space to ware a sweeter. most importantly is the omni heat it work well but for temperatures almost in 0 degrees! you will need to ware a thick sweeter under the jacket. but overall works wonder!! my kid used DAILY!!! January 29, 2014
Great for the kids This is a great, all around winter jacket. My kids basically live in them. The fit is ideal. Roomy enough to wear a sweater underneath (not that you would need too). Love that you can turn it into a packable item as well. Would rec this for anyone looking for a great all around jacket for kids. December 17, 2013
Shimmer Me, small me, goofy liner me We didn't like the liner. If a kid hates something about a clothing item they are not going to wear it. Heck, I'm the same way. Way too small anyway. It's on it's way back. December 7, 2013
Very warm but not bulky!! This coat is great for my son. It is very warm with no bulk which is very important to him. The sizing is true, I ordered an XL first, based on another review and he was swimming in it. December 6, 2013
Sizing mishap I ordered this product for my son after he had been wearing Columbia Jackets previously. He was in a size 10-12, so I ordered him a size 14-16 (growth spurt). However, once the jacket arrived, it (size 14-16) fit him the exact same as his present sized 10-12 coat. Do different styles fit that differently? One would think that the sizes would be according to their own size charts. Otherwise I am sure it is a good product. December 1, 2013
Small! Nice one... Size not as excepted! Smaller for the size chart! November 19, 2013
Extremely Warm, Light and Comfortable I thought Omni-Heat was a gimmick until my kids kept raving about how warm this jacket is. It is lightweight, has very comfortable arms and kid-friendly features. My kids also select this jacket in all kinds of conditions (wet, windy, snow), which means it is very warm but does not retain excess heat. I wish I knew what the adult equivalent was -- my favorite Columbia product yet. November 9, 2013
Second time around This is the second Omni Heat winter jacket I have bought my son. I searched for a long time finding the right winter coat. Chicago gets very cold in the winter and my son goes outside for recess twice a day, even in the winter months. Most jackets are very warm on the chest and back but have very little protection over the arms. This coat is an exception. It is very light yet very warm. It really gets the job done. It also washes well! November 9, 2013
Runs small I ordered this for my son in a Large. The Columbia he had last year was a Medium. The Large was smaller than the Medium. In this coat he could have used an XL. Disappointed because all the Columbia is starting to run so small in almost everything. October 28, 2013
Great outdoor jacket for the little ones! I got this jacket for my two boys. They love being outside and with the seasons changing I needed something to keep them warm. The Omni-Heat works awesome and keeps them warm on chilly afternoons and cold nights. October 24, 2013
