Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winter Jacket Bought this after visiting my local Columbia store and not liking the colors or prints available there. This color combo is great and the style fit my petite 6 year old with room to grow! My son has a long torso so this jacket is great as it reaches just above his knees. Might fit shorter if another child is taller but it is still longer which I find better than just the standard at the waist length. I also love that on the inside of the jacket there is a separate waist snap system so if out playing in the snow you just snap them together and it keeps any snow from riding up inside! So far my son loves it and it's held up beautifully so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent jacket for kids Really like this purchase. Water resistant, wind resistant, extra insulation, and permanently attached hood really keep little ones warm and dry. Powder skirt is a plus to keep snow and cold air out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my son Love the color, fit, and functionality. My son is able to throw snow balls, run around and have freedom in his arms without being weighed down. And keep super warm at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and color I bought this product for my 6 yr old son. Orange color looks fabulous on him and jacket is very warm and light for a kid. It's very functional and I recommend for all active kids as they can indulge in outdoor activities and remain protected from cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from extremely satisfied Bought a size bigger so my son could wear it for several years. It serves its function of keeping him warm during the cold windy days. Definitely satisfied with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Jacket I recently purchased this jacket for my 7 year old son and he loves it. It’s much warmer than his quilted jacket and not as bulky as the 3-in-1 variety we typically get each year. We only started using it this week, so can’t fully attest to its durability. So far it’s keeping up with its very active owner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I bought this jacket for my son. I am very pleased with how it looks and my son says it is warm. It was a little longer than other jackets that we have purchased from here.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Zipper keeps open I got it for my 10 yr old since it runs a little long the zipper keeps getting open. The quality of the zipper is poor for the regular Columbia products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter jacket Greatest jacket for rain or snow! Keeps my boy warm and dry. He likes the little skirt on the bottom as it kept snow from creeping in during sledding. I purchased bigger size for him to use again next year. He wears this jacket every day for 4 months now and I don't see any wear or tear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter coat This coat is super warm and waterproof. For Ohio and it's up-and-down weather this coat is perfect !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my son I purchased this for my 11 year old son. He is thin and tall. It is really waterproof, and warm. We have no snow here; it goes very well and comfortable for school. Easy to run the zippers. In red is very good looking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very warm and stylish My son has barely worn this jacket because we had a very mild winter but it will be good for at least another year or so. I love how stylish while at the same time it could keep an Eskimo warm! Lol!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as good as it looks Great looking coat but not worth what I paid! My son has had it for 2 months and the zipper broke off and before that it constantly would come on done at the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great coat I ordered this jacket for my 13 yr old to take skiing in Colorado. The jacket fits great! It is longer at the waist to cover his backside, and has snaps inside to tighten at the waist to prevent snow from getting under the jacket when he snowboards. It is lightweight but kept him very warm, while not being too bulky! It runs true to size and was a great price. If I had to change anything, I would add pockets on the inside of the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommend! We love this coat! Bought this jacket for my 5 year old and he picked it out himself! We live in North Dakota, so we need good quality jackets here. Ive always chose to buy the Columbia brand because I've always gotten the best quality from this company. The jacket runs longer but I bought it a little bigger for him so he fits into it for a couple years. Definitely recommended!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Jacket Poor Zipper The zipper has been finicky since we purchased this. Can't find my receipt or I would have returned it. When I purchased this coat for my son, I thought I would have something he would have for at least a season, not so sure anymore. Disappointing.
