Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice jacket for my young one! I bought this jacket for my 10 year old for a trip to Spain (temp around 30s) and an upcoming trip to Iceland. Very nice looking, comfortable enough even with a hoodie underneath. And my son loves it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a winter coat This is a really nice coat but it is marketed as a winter one— it does not have the warmth to go through a winter. It is more of a fall coat

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coat I really like this coat for my son. He’s a size 4/4T, got an xxs, and the sleeves are a little long but we just rolled them a little. It will probably fit better next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boy's Power Lite Puffer I ordered this jacket for my seven year old, in size 8. He loved it so much that he did not want to take it off! I will be getting his next jacket here, due to the fit. The next day he went on his science field trip and the jacket was the first thing that he grabbed. Looking at the picture when ordering, I did not realize that it had a hood. I was very surprised and excited, because that was exactly what I wanted. It was as the title advertised - Lite Puffer, no heavy weight to carry around. The item was very well made, with the best of materials. This is my new shopping place for my grandchild.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my boys Best coat I every bought for my boys. It's thin, breathable and best of all my busy boys can move around in it. At first I was a little worried it would be too thin. The first day they wore the coat it was extremely cold outside. It kept them nice and warm. I will definitely purchase more Columbia products in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loves it! Bought this four my 5 yo son that is very particular about what he wears. He has autism and he does not like bulky jackets or jackets that make a lot of noise. He absolutely loves this one and doesn't ever argue about having to wear it. I purposely bought it a little big so he can wear layers underneath. Very satisfied with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This coat is moderately warm I got this coat a size large for my son, he is 3yo. And I got an extra small. The coat itself is not super puffy but there is enough room to wear a jacket underneath for extra warmth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat! This is the second time we have purchased this coat for my son. He is 11 and he has always hated wearing coats because he feels like they r bulky and uncomfortable. So we found this coat two years ago and he wore it for two years and finally outgrew it this year. I had to specifically look for the same coat because he likes the hood and the fact that it’s light weight, warm, and not bulky!! Would definitely recommend!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket Bought this for my 13 year old son. He loves it! Sleeves are a bit long for him but it's a great over all fit. He is in between a large and and extra large for this jacket at 5'4" and 110lbs but more towards the XL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boys powder Lite Puffer Jacket Fits my 15 year old perfectly. Jacket is somewhat fitted. Very nice looking and appears to be warm.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice jacket, sizing is off though Bought a large for my son, it was way too small for him! Returned and got the xl, the arms are long enough now, but the jacket is too tight through the back and chest. It is also very long now. The jacket is warm but the tight cut makes it uncomfortable for my son to wear. Wish I would have returned it, but he needed a jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New York My son loves the fit and so do I. Wished it was a little thicker but you can always throw under a fleece sweater under it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, Fun Winter Jacket My son loves his bright orange puffer jacket. Not too puffy, and just enough orange for him. Fits great, and keeps him warm on the cold days. Great jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice jacket I love the jacket but I am very disappointed in the sizes. I ordered one for each of my boys based on the size charts and the reviews. They are both very average kids, my oldest even being on the smaller size for his age and when I received the jackets they are both way too small. The medium which is a size 8 would only fit a 5 or 6 year. So I have to return them and get a bigger size. So I would definitely recommend ordering a size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket My 5 year old loves this jacket. We bought a small and it is a little big, but he will be able to use it for quite awhile. The hood fits perfectly around his face with no gaps and does not fall into his eyes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good quality Great jacket keeps you warm the only thing that it runs small my son is 12 years old weights 90 pounds and it's fits in small and it's a size large and it should fit a 14 to 16. He won't be able to wear it. Wish i had order a bigger size.
Date published: 2017-12-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not really warm enough for mid winter Nicely made jacket, but it’s not really warm enough for an NJ winter. The pockets are very shallow. My 8 year old has already lost two pairs of gloves because they fell out of his pockets. I’m glad I purchased this on sale. Would not recommend if you live in a really cold climate.
Date published: 2017-11-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit! This coat is perfect for my active child. It keeps him warm without being bulky. He can play freely without being cold. The hood fits his head and around his face perfectly with no gaps. It is also condensed enough that if he wants to take it off it will fit in his backpack. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very warm My son says the cost is very warm and comfortable anytime your kids is happy makes you happy so I’m very pleased with the item

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Our winter coat choice again We got the powder lite in a toddler size last year, and we loved that it was warm but not bulky. And it looked really good--until it got dirty and wouldn't come clean in the wash no matter what I tried. This year, my boy is wearing the boys xxs. (He usually is in a size 6, but the xs was way too big.) The fabric is not as nice as the last powder lite coat we had--I don't know if Columbia has changed the powder lite or if the toddler version is different. I haven't found another coat I like better, but we will keep looking for next year. For now, my boy loves wearing this no matter what the temperature is outside, and he even loves putting on the hood!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jacket for my 7 year old This is a great coat it’s warm and fits him great even when he is playing outside

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed. With a recent move north, my little ones are experiencing their first winter. I knew bulky coats would not go over well so I searched high and low for something on the thinner side that was practical, plenty warm and still affordable. These coats are perfect! I’m sure they will fit the bill for our New York winter needs and can easily be layered for the really blustery days. They’re thin enough to easily have my kindergartener put it in his backpack by himself. My 5&7 year old boys are on the small side so the XS and S are pretty roomy right now but, not excessively so. I debated sizing down and that would have been just fine so, I’d say they’re very much true to size. I may even get another season out of them, which is always a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket Great jacket, not too bulky but looks warm for active boys. Love the grey color, very stylish. I ordered L for my almost 8 years old who is a chunky little fella. 100Lbs and almost 5' tall. He normally wears 14-16 size tops in Husky size (it's not easy to find a jacket that would fit him comfortable with room for warmer sweatshirt underneath). Overal size was great but little tight on his chubby belly (wish Columbia had husky sizes). But that's just my boy. It would fit perfectly on normal size boys 14-16 or younger children (with room to grow). Unfortunately I had to return it as it arrived with 2 little holes ( 1 on Columbia letters and one above it). I guess machine sowing letters on the jacket had a glitch. Bummer! Return was easy. I'm on a search for husky size jacket. If I won't find it I will reorder that one. I highly recommend this style. You can't beat Columbia quality and look!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NYC Winters are brutal - Not thick enough I should've read all the comments. This coat is warm when its 50 degrees but not when its 32 degress outside with blistering wind. I didnt realize how thin the coat was until I received it. My son appreciates it because he can stuff it in his backpack but if you need warmth in really cold temperatures, opt for a thicker jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect puff jacket I have been looking for a similar puff jacket replacement for over a year since my son out grew his old one. I tried different brands and just not working out with my picky boy. Finally, I found this puff jacket and it is perfect. It is very similar to his old one. In fact, I think it came from the same manufacture who used to make jackets for Nautica. And it is way cheaper than a North Face one that feels thinner and less puffy jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs small but great quality My son is 12, 5ft 2in and weighs about 105lbs. I originally ordered the L thinking it would be fine. It was too tight in the hips and too short in the sleeves. I ordered him the XL and it fits great. This seems like a great quality jacket, although he's only been wearing it for a couple weeks.
