Rated 4 out of 5 by iski2 A beautiful jacket
I ordered this jacket for my 8 year old granddaughter who is a slight child sizewise. I really wanted this jacket to work for her because it is a beautiful jacket in every respect. I read the reviews and they were, for the most part, positive, with one exception...the fit/size. Some buyers said it runs a little small and they were correct. I ordered the girl's size small which was a little snug on her, so I ordered the next size up, medium. This one was too big all around, especially the sleeves. Sadly, I think both jackets will need to be returned. She might keep the size small and get barely one season out of it and pass it down to her sister(s). Again, it's a great jacket and I highly recommend it. Just be aware that the size could be a problem. That's why I gave it 4 stars. But for the size, I would have given it 10 stars.

The child was very pleased to receive the jacket. The jacket appears to be well made and should provide a dry and warm winter for this 3 year old.
We have come to rely upon the quality of design, material and workmanship of L.L. Bean products. We were not disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1olafwinter great jacket
Last year I bought this jacket for my son, and he loved it! This year my daughter wanted it too. The color is great, they love the hidden pockets, and the inner sleeve that extends to their hands. It is warm and comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shananana I didn't think we'd like it!
I ordered this jacket because it was exactly what we needed for the snow. I am super picky and wanted something cute but not ridiculously girly, that could fit a 3 year old with a long, thin torso. Unfortunately, the only color left was green. Anyhow, I was waiting for it and decided that id end up sending it back because of color and fit. I was SO wrong. The green is actually cute. The fit is perfect. I really have a problem with 3t and 4t because of length and girth while not fitting her arm length. This jacket is good for slender children. It really does fit perfectly, it's super warm and perfect for the snow. I couldn't be happier with this purchase and as its my first purchase from ll bean, I will be shopping here again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NMMountainMom Very warm, just what we needed!
I ordered a different winter jacket earlier in the year (from a different retailer) for my 6-year-old daughter...but it was nowhere near warm enough. After doing some research on warmth ratings, I ordered this jacket. It blows away the "other jacket" -a puffer one- and I am so glad I spent the extra money. Instantly, my daughter said she was warm and toasty - as a mom, that's what I needed to hear! I ordered it a bit big -a size 8- and it is quite a bit bigger than she is, so its probably true to size. It'll be good for a few years, for sure.
It has some really nice features, like the little buttons to close up the waist, as well as a drawstring. I was delighted about that.
The color is really lime green, but my daughter likes it. We've finally moved on from pink, so was super glad to see something other than pink and purple in the color options!.
I would buy this coat again in a heart-beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hckygrl37 Very warm
This jacket is very warm. My daughter loves the fact that it has the thumb holes in the sleeve lining. We are really looking forward to being out in the cold Maine winter ice skating and sledding.
She normally wears a size 8 so that is the size we bought. We ended up taking it back because it was the perfect fit if not a little snug. I want the jacket to last a couple years so we bought a 10/12 and it is great. So happy to have another great item from LL BEAN

Rated 5 out of 5 by CTmotherof3 Love this coat
Great Coat - bought one for my 4 year old (size 5-6 which fits well) and one for my 10 year old (bought XL since it runs almost an entire size small). Order up for big kids!
Love the wrist warmer. Yes, it takes a little effort making sure it doesn't get tangled tanking jacket off but kids quickly adjust. They love this feature. The inside has two snap button closures in addition to the zipper, which we just don't use and its no problem leaving open.
Colors of jacket are good. Red for boy which is a true red and purple for girl that looks just like on-line. Much better than LLBeans revamped colors in the Khatadin Parkas (my favorite coat by LLBean but just did not like the crazy color changes this year.)
Try this coat - just order up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoPepGo Big Hit!
Bought this coat for our 13 yr old granddaughter. She LOVED it! The lime green color was a bit bright for my taste, but not her's! The inside pockets, especially the iPod or I-phone pocket with the buttonhole opening for her head phone wires was a BIG hit! She has a very slim gymnast figure that lends itself to the need of the elastic cinching in the interior lining at the bottom of the coat, which will keep out wind and snow. It also has sleeve linings with the thumb slot that will keep her hands warmer, should she decide to shed her gloves. This coat was a definite KEEPER!!
