Rated 4 out of 5 by PaddedTWHsupporter Warm and dry
My son has spent many hours in this jacket playing hard in the snow in some pretty cold temperatures. He never complains about being cold and is always dry. The hand pocket seams came with a hole in one side and the other side the seam came undone after only a couple of wears. Otherwise the jacket has held up nicely!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by seamonkey1975 Runs too small
I should have heeded the other customer reviews and ordered a size up. I ordered a boys 6/7 and its exactly the same size as a size 5 coat that I'm trying to replace for my son. Frustrating. Otherwise it seems like a good coat, but it's being returned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BrooklynMom15 Standard Sizing
The jacket seems to be of good quality. It hasn't really be worn in bad weather, so the jury is still out.
I disagree about the sizing. Based on other reviews, I purchased (on sale - woohoo) a boy's small for my 7 yr. He was swimming in it. I had to return it and order a young boys XL which fits him nicely but probably be tight on him next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 3boysdeep Order next size up! Love the quality.
I have the 2013 version in size S, and my sons needed the next size up M. After reading the reviews about it running small, I ordered the L instead of the M. I'm glad I did because the M would have been too small. Love the quality of the coat, and would buy again. Just order one size larger than you normally would. For reference, my boys are 10 and average sized.

Rated 4 out of 5 by anonymous41 Love the quality but it runs small
love the quality, but it definitely runs smaller than any other winter coat we have purchased from LLBean. In fact my son tried on his sister's size 8 coat from last year which was perfect (but bright purple). We ordered the gray/white came coat in a size 8 and the sleeves were an inch too short and it was tight across the chest with only a thin shirt underneath. Reordered in a 10/12.

I agree that it runs small. It is the fit as his last year parka from LL Bean that was a M. This one I ordered in L and it has the same fit as a M. I have reordered an XL, so hopefully it won't be too big on him!
