I bought this coat for my 11 year old son and liked it so much I bought one for my 9 year old daughter in pink of course. She LOVES it because it's not "puffy" and it keeps her toasty warm. I definitely recommend this coat.
"Great jacket for fall, winter and spring"
Bought this jacket as part of a proper layering system for my 12 year-old daughter after she kept complaining about looking like a "puff-ball" on the ski slopes (and still being cold). She's 4'9" 85 lbs, and the medium fits her perfectly. Excellent North Face quality. Keeps her warm and dry, and with the removable inner lining is flexible enough for both winter and spring use. In short, mission accomplished - no more complaints from her! Here's just hoping she doesn't grow out of it too quickly.
This jacket is honestly the warmest jacket I've ever owned (when both layers are worn together). I love the versitility of being able to wear the jacket three ways. And the outer layer...is actually rainproof! I love this jacket!
