Rated 3 out of 5 by Mof3 Nice, lightweight, but TINY
I bought this for my niece who is very petite. She normally wears an 8 . After reading the reviews indicating the jacket was very narrow I assumed the Small (8-10) would be perfect. She LOVED the jacket, but I have to send it back because we could barely zip. The arm length and width are fine. The body is short and narrow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mossyoakmom Very Small
I ordered this for my 8 year old son. I read the other reviews that stated it ran small so I ordered a medium (10-12), assuming that this would be adequate (my son is currently in a size 8). This jacket is very small. Unfortunately, I will have to return it. The x-large is currently sold out. I definitely would have ordered the x-large for him. I measured the actual jacket as: armpit to armpit across the front of the chest 15 inches, top to bottom- from the seam that meats the arm to the shoulder to bottom is 19 inches, armpit to wrist is 18 inches. The material is soft with a mesh lining, button snaps over the zipper, pockets zip closed. I hope this helps!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ActLocally Very nice, except....
This is a great jacket and is very nice quality....but it is much smaller than we expected. We purchased the size L for our 10 year old son and it just fits him. The overall length and the length of the arms seems good, but the body of it seems not very wide. In other words, being a thin, lightweight jacket it is great- but there is virtually no room for adding layers underneath for warmth. Unfortunately, there is no larger youth size made and the same jacket is not made for men either. It is so nice, we are keeping it though for this year to use and will have to pass it on to our younger son or a friend next year as I am sure he will not fit in it next year at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by greenheadq Nice jacket, sizing runs SMALL
This is a Christmas gift for my 7 year old son. I can't write a review based on the durability yet, as he hasn't even worn it. I will say that the sizing runs very small. I returned the size small and got the size large for him. It still looks small to me, but is a very nice looking jacket.
