Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay coat but has flaw I bought this coat for my son and he loved it! Wore it to school yesterday for the first time and the zipper separated from the bottom while he had it zipped. Not able to return it because I do not have the shipping label anymore. Kind of bummed for the price I paid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good quality jacket so far! I actually got this jacket for my daughter and she loves it so far. We haven't had a good test for it yet but she says it's very cozy and I love that it is all one piece since we have had some issues with the 2 layer type jackets not being sturdy enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love Columbia Sportswear Columbia Sportswear has been my favorite shopping store since we moved to oregon. My family counts on us to buy our grandkids their winter coats because they are so well made and outlast other brands. Thank you for continuing to have excellent quality and service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alittle big but very warm My kids only wear columbia and this coat is amazing. Alittle big but time for him to grow into before the MN winter hits us. Never had a problem with columbia coats keeping my boys toasty warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great jacket! This is a great jackets, especially for the sale price. My 5 1/2 year old son loves the color and function. He is smaller for his age, but the XXS is what fit him, which surprised me. I would guess most kids could use a size smaller than anticipated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and comfortable I bought this for my six year old after he found the columbia wrecktangle jacket wasn't warm enough for cold Colorado nights. We love this coat! it keeps him warm and dry in 20 degree weather without a lot of layers, the coat is not bulky so it is easy to carry or stuff in a backpack and while the design is basic, my discerning 6 year old likes the look of it because it doesn't make him "look like a baby".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice coat, but will have to save it for next year! Nice coat, but too big to wear this year, will have to save for next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat! My 7 year old son is average height, and a bit thin so I ordered the small. It is just a tad long in the sleeves which is perfect. He does not like heavy winter coats, or any winter coat for the matter, but he loves this one. It keeps him warm on frigid northeast mornings. But it is light enough not to weigh him down. He is able to run and play with no issues. It is soundly constructed, as my son is extremely rough on clothing and coats. I will definitely continue with Columbia as he gets older.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this snow suit! My 6yo son is an average size and as recommended, I purchased the XS (6-7yo) It fits a little large, as expected but it keeps him warm and dry. We are in Minnesota and standing at the bus stop in the freezing mornings - he needed a warm jacket and pants! I'm very happy with the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great coat for winter I bought this coat in blue, size M for my 10 year old son. His other coat was a quilted jacket from old navy that would get wet easily and was quite thin. We live in the Rocky Mountains and he wasn't staying warm playing outside. The coat has an attached hood, which was something he asked for (he is always losing things) and soft lined pockets to keep his hands warm. The coat is not bulky like other brands we have had in the past, but it is thick enough to provide a layer of warmth and heat for the outdoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat! This is one of the best coats that I have ever bought my son. It is not too bulky and keeps him very warm. I love the velcro on the bottom of the sleeves to adjust the size. I will buying this same coat a size up after he grows out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket This is a fantastic, light weight jacket. Would recommend for any active child. Great for keeping warm, but also not a huge pain if you (as a parent) have to carry it around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Order 1 size up The large seemed to run small for my 5'1 110 pound stepson. The sleeves stopped above the wrist bone. I ordered up to an xl so he can use longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy Bought a size medium for my 8 yr old son thinking it was a 8/10 medium but it was actually a size 10/12. I should have looked closer. Oh well, good quality so he can grow into it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Find Before purchasing this jacket, I had been on several websites trying to get my grandson to agree on a Winter Jacket. I had just bought a Columbia jacket myself and was happy, so I checked to see if they sold kids apparel. When I found this coat, he immediately smiled, said yes, and I ordered it. The jacket fits great, and really does keep him warm. We have had some 26-30 degree mornings with cold breezes. He wears this jacket everyday, telling me it's light but really warm and comfortable to wear. I thought it might be bulky but, he says he can play at recess or ride in the car and he feels good not confined. Thank you for making a jacket that is not only good looking enough to please a parent or grandparent, but a 9 year old boy AND have it function in all the right ways. Everytime he wears it, I smile because he looks great and he is warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coat and Price Oddly enough finding a winter coat that was proper for Chicago winters was harder than I thought. Many big brands had winter coats, minus a hood, for well over 100 dollars, other vendors shipped a coat that was suited for fall weather at best or ran extremely small. My son (11 years) is happy with this coat and so am I. It looks good, he reports it is warm (we had near 0 temps already out here), and it fits well. Very good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Color Not As Pictured I ordered the black print for my son when I received it today it looked nothing like what I thought I ordered, the one I received was more a camouflage color and the inside was black in the picture it looks like its supposed to be gray. Dont get me wrong its a nice coat but I just wished it had looked like the picture but I will get over it just beware the black print doesnt look like the picture.
