Rated 5 out of 5 by kcapon Great purchase--my son loves it!
This jacket was a hit with my 8 year old son. We purchased the 10/12 because he's a big kid--always the tallest in his class, wearing a size 10 generally, and it was true to size. Enough room for a bit of growth, comfortable...he loves the thumbhole cuffs, it's easy to zip, the hood is generous. I can't think of a negative. The grey and lime green was just as pictured on the website. He's stayed warm and dry this winter. It's the first time he's really loved his jacket, and it was our first one from LL Bean. It won't be our last!

I've got 3 boys and I live in Chicago. I need something that will get me through the long, cold, windy winters and growing guys. This jacket is it. It's warm without being bulky, comes down long enough to protect from wind whipping up, and I love the hand features that others seem annoyed by. They do tend to get stuck in the sleeves when the jacket gets taken off but it takes about 2seconds to pull them back out and the extra protection is worth it. It also looks cool. Great coat-I plan to keep buying it year after year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JacksonBlues Zipper Melted!
I always purchase LL BEAN Winter jackets for my kids because of the amazing quality. I have no problem with the warmth of the jacket or even the fact that it is waterproof. Those performed as advertised. My problem is with the quality of the zipper. A portion of the zipper melted while in the clothes dryer and there are a couple spots that are deformed due to the heat of the dryer apparently. Never had a problem before. I have never reviewed a product before but when you spend $120 on a winter jacket I would expect it to last more than 3 months. Very Disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hopkinson4 Awesome coat
We received my sons coat yesterday and we are very pleased with how well it fits him. He has room for the coat to last for a while. The color (red) is very bright the inside is very warm. Arrived just in time for our cold weather. A lot of people complained that the wrist was too tight they fit close not tight like a shirt so the snow does not go inside the sleeve. Overall a very awesome cost

by IndianaDonna very impressed
This coat exceeds my expectations. Well made, fits my grandson very nice. I love that it not bulky and with the thinsulate it will be super warm. Also LOVE that it is easy to zip for a 4 1/2 year old. He easily does it himself. He also thinks all the extra pockets are really cool. The snap elastic band on inside bottom will definitely keep snow out. My grandson is 4/12 years old, weights 48 lbs and is 47.5 inches tall, slender build. He ran around outside today to try it out. Just Fall time now, but he will be set for winter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SatisfiedMom23 Fantastic jacket!
This jacket is incredibly warm without being too bulky. The details are terrific. My 4 year old easily zips it himself and absolutely loves the spandex cuffs and thumb holes. I was so surprised other reviewers did not like these details as they are not at all tight on my son, do not irritate his skin, and are so easy for him to use. He loves to put his jacket on and immediately stick his thumbs through the holes. It adds a cozy warmth to the jacket and makes him feel like he is putting on his big boy jacket. The other details are also amazing from the various pockets to the triangle reflector on the jacket. This jacket has already been through serious cold and snow and several washings and is as warm and pristine as the day we got it. Thanks LLBean!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Beanmama13 Spandex sleeves/thumb holes irritate skin
My 5 year old son loves this jacket. However, I hadn't focused on the spandex sleeves and thumb holes. These features irritate my son's wrists. As a result, we end up tucking them in the sleeves. I will likely cut them out, but am putting that off since the jacket itself is a bit pricey. Other than that, the product seems great.

Rated 5 out of 5 Epic Snow Jacket
I bought this for my 7 y/o son online since our local Bean store closed. I can't emphasize enough how much this jacket exceeded my expectations! This was clearly designed for a kid to roll around in the snow and not get snow inside the jacket. There are snow penetration countermeasures at multiple points. It's a shame they don't show more of these on the item photos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MapleGlenMom Very warm
Lots if great features my picky 6 year old loves from water proof zippers, soft fleece interior, to extra keep-snow-out waistband. Only complaint is the snug fit wrist bands designed to keep out snow and wet are also so tight it's hard for him to squeeze his hands through and they always get turned inside out when taking the coat off.
