All three of my kids have one of these jackets. Because it is three jackets in one, there is no need to purchase any others. The inside liner zips out and can be worn on its own, the outer shell is wind/water resistant and also works great by itself. Both of these pieces alone are great for transistion seasons, or for the random warm winter day that a full winter coat is just too much. Together, this jacket is very warm. It is great for school and for skiing as well. Plus, the hood is removable, for kids who prefer a hat! My kids love their jackets so much, I bought the adult version for myself!
This is our 5th kids Triclimate jacket from TNF. We only ever had one minor problem and when we did we sent the jacket back and TNF replaced the snap for the sleeve retainer just like new (the coat was two years old at the time). The thing is pretty bullet proof and all our others have been handed down through the ranks. This is a great jacket, warm, weatherproof and according to my 8 year old "Tyler" da bomb digity... Great stuff from Moosejaw.
I got this for my son and we both love it. It keeps him warm and it fits him well. Usually a child that is 7 complains about putting on a coat in the winter so if I can get him to wear this happily you know it has to be a good one. It is warm but not extremely bulky like some other winter coats.
This jacket is for you if you have multiple personalities as it is three jackets in one! It is very sturdy - perfect for my 12 year old lad; fashionable (like him) and warm, which is just what we need in The Windy City! It has a gabillion pockets that zip, which is another must for an on-the-go, multitasking individual who has things that need safekeeping, i.e., phone, money and light sabers. I'm a mom, and I approve this jacket!
"Really good, with the waterproof material!"
Well, I purchased it for the winter in NY, and saw it on sale for $130.00 which is way cheaper than any store I saw online and at Macy's, Kamp, etc. I have to say, for a coat this cheap, it was really good to buy and the best of it is that it can separate in more than 1 jacket, giving you the possibilities to wear the part of this jacket depending of the weather. Buy this awesome jacket!
