Rated 5 out of 5 by AlohaKupuna Perfect color, perfect fit
I have been getting my granddaughter's winter coat from LL Bean since she was an infant. Everyone of them have been handed down to a cousin and then to a little sister...and they are still in great shape! This year she chose the "pink, puffy jacket". She tried it on right away when it came in the mail, even though it was a very hot summer's day! She loves it! It's big enough to last maybe two seasons, yet fits just right for now....It's still a warm summer here in the Pacific Northwest so we have to patiently wait for the cool days to come before it's worn! Thanks, LL Bean for another perfect jacket!

My daughter loves this jacket! She wears it on cool mornings and stuffs it in her bookbag/backpack after it warms up. Great quality, as expected from LLB!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RedeyedMama Lightweight and easy to wash. Sleeves longer
Last year I bought this jacket in the Aqua color in a 6x/7. This year I let my daughter pick out her fav color in the 8 and she chose the French Blue (which has the slightest purple hue - not quite as "royal" as I think she thought it would be - but she accepted it.). The difference in size is interesting. The sleeves are a solid 3 inches longer but the overall length is barely an inch longer and the shoulders are about an inch wider. The width across is a good inch wider (making it about 2 inches wider all around). Not crazy about the longer sleeves - the longer the dirtier but I know many girls have those long arms and will find this a better fit. The fabric is a bit unusual but I am telling you, my daughter wears this nonstop and I wash and dry it almost once a week. It has held up! And again, she likes it and will wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AwesomeAng Perfect weight for Spring!
I bought this for my 7 year old daughter. She loved the color and the bright accent color on the inside. I love it for the fact that it is perfect for spring in Ohio - it can be 70 one day and 45 the next! She has been caught in the rain a few times walking from the bus and the water just rolls off the jacket. It provides enough warmth for her without being bulky.

This is the first jacket my daughter (2) picked out on her own. The purchase will be for next winter so the jacket was large but that was the intent. My daughter wore it in the store during our visit and refused to take it off so I assume she liked it and that it was comfortable. It looks great and appears well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shoppingforkidsisfun Great jacket for early Spring
I got two of these for my girls ages 4 and 7years. We love them so far! Perfect for when they are tired of wearing their winter coats but still need something to keep them warm on chilly SPRING days. I really like the cuffed sleeves, it helps you buy a size up if needed/wanted and the sleeves will stay in place . I sized up to the size 8 for my 7 year old and it fits great but shouldstill fit next Fall too. I think it will be great for chilly weather then too. The coral color was brighter than expected and at first I wasn't sure I liked it, but it started to grow on me, and totally coordinates with all the bright colored shoes out right now. Very on trend. PLEASE keep this coat in the lineup! Girls have been comfortable in the coat in windy temps 30-55 degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoreBeanTheBetter Perfect for Spring and Fall in North..not winter!
If you live in an area where it gets cold in the winter, this is NOT the coat! It's perfect for the Spring and Fall though. It's a bit of a stretch calling it "puff" and stuff. It is not very puffy at all. I'm not trying to sound negative because this coat is perfect for what we got it for. I got it for my gals on our winter trip to the Ca coast. I wanted something that can be rolled into a small ball to carry in their backpack. Expecting the evenings to get chilly, this is perfect as a light comfy layer. Love the hood to help with the wind and possible rain.
Beware, the coral color is BRIGHT! It's a pink/coral and shocking. My gals was okay with it but it's definitely not my favorite. The other gal got the blue and it's very nice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Penningtonmom Thin and flimsy
I am surprised at the temperature rating on this very thin jacket. It would only work in 0 to 25 degrees if the child wore some thick layers with it. We got the bright pink with the light pink trim, and the light pink around the sleeves gets dirty and dingy looking fast. The shell is very thin and my 4 year old snagged it on something the first week she wore it. I feel bad returning something we used, but I regret this purchase. It is cute though, and runs a bit big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mntgirl Versatile Jacket
I bought this jacket for a very active 8 year old. This jacket is the perfect weight and fits in a backpack without taking up a lot of room. It is a great lighter layer over a T-shirt on windy fall days. The last few weeks have been below zero and with a shirt and fleece under it my child has been warm and dry even on the snowiest days. I will definitely buy this jacket again when it becomes too small.

I love this coat and so does my daughter. It keeps her warm but it's not bulky at all. I wish LL Bean would make this coat in toddler sizes.
