Rated 4 out of 5 by JRay55 Bring Back Orange!
My son loves this jacket. He has had it for a few years (I bought it on the bigger side) and it has held up very well. He was ready to get a bigger size this year but he wanted his exact same jacket which is orange. So we are squeezing one more year out of it in hopes that orange will be offered next winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thiamgh Happy grandson
I bought this jacket on the winter sale for my 5 year-old grandson, whose current jacket was too light and getting small. When I asked him what he thought of the new one he said it was very warm. He did not have to be asked twice to put it on to go out the door to school. While it has all the closures and wrist bands to keep snow and cold out, what mattered to him was that it was his favorite color: green.
When I heard he needed a jacket, I told his parents I would get him one from LL Bean as I knew it would be good. They agreed and are also pleased with it.

Did not see the parka yet as it was sent to my grandson as a gift. He liked the coat and the color. I purchased this for him to wear next winter . By then it will fit him. Purchased one two yrs. ago and he got two seasons out of it and it was plenty warm enough for him. His mom liked it a lot as well. Good purchase for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by goats1 NIce warm jacket!
My 5 year old son really needed a new coat and fast since it was the middle of winter when his other coats' zipper decided to break. I was very happy to see this arrived in about a week, and immediately had my son try it on. I bought a size larger than he usually wears so he can wear it two years.It fits very nicely, and more importantly, the sleeves are plenty long since my son is very tall for his age. He has worn it a few times now, and the coats' been problem free, and its plenty warm enough to keep him cozy in our WIsconsin single digit temperature weather. A very nice coat, and I would buy it again!

Excellent quality. I ordered too large for my grandson. I reordered a smaller size. I have purchased similar jackets for the children for Christmas in past years and keep returning.

I bought this coat for my son. It is warm without being excessively bulky, washes well, and is easy to zip up. Very pleased with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Odieoscar Very light weight
Warm and very light weight, my son hates to wear a jacket that is heavy in weight ... he won't wear it. If he wanted to, he could fold it up and put it in his book bag. You would definitely need to wear a hat, the hood that folds up into the collar is thin. But it is large enough to fit over a thick hat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FreckleMom Fantastic Coat for Winter Sports
All three children own this coat for playing in the snow and enjoying outdoor winter sports. However, the color choices this year are UGLY compared to previous years. My young children like the coats with two very different colors. Ages 11, 10, 8. Thank goodness their coats still fit from last year.

We have been buying "Katahdin Parka" for our kids since my older one was 3 years old (now he is 13) and my girl is 10 now. So you can see quality of this particular coat. Kids say it is very warm, comfortable, fits them great and it is waterproof. It holds excellent in freezing temperatures, also very light. We give away coats every time when it is time to buy new ones. Colors do not shade, after many washes it is still going strong. I never go for fancy coats. It always makes sense to buy from LLBean. It worth every dollar you spent for a health of your child. Thank you guys!
