Boys' Down Puffer Jacket
So far we are really happy with this jacket. A couple of reasons we like it - it's actually filled with down. Look around at most other kids retailers and their "down" jackets are synthetic, polyester, etc. The few out there that do have real down are much more expensive than this jacket...I feel this was a good deal for quality material. The fill power of the down means it keeps kids warmer without the bulk. My toddler son hates big bulky jackets so it's great that we got a jacket that keeps him as warm or warmer but without the extra fabric. Also like that the hood fits well around his face and is adjustable, and like the wrist cuffs.
The temperature rating for this jacket is -10 to 25 F....we live near D.C. and this is more than adequate for our winters. Maybe if you live in Minnesota or get tons of snow you need something more heavy duty but if you get a few snows a year and temperatures don't usually get lower than the 20s this jacket should more than meet your winter needs.
On sizing - we got this for my son a month before he turned 3. He's tall but skinny for his age and the 2T fit him well.

This coat is warm, but not bulky. The husky is a perfect fit for my son. I purchased it during the 30% off sale so the price couldn't be beat.

Excellent and Warm Coat
I bought 2 of these coats for my 2 grandson's. Both the boys LOVE their coats (ages 11 and 12). They both tell me that the coat is very warm. The only complaint I received from the boys was that the Deck Gray coat is not really gray. It is more Blue than gray. He doesn't really care for the blue (gray) color. He would prefer a black coat, but you do not offer this coat in black. The other boy loves his Green colored coat. The quality of the coat and the fit is great. I also love the duck tail back which keeps the back covered when they bend over. Absolutely great coat for the money. When they grow out of this coat, I will by another in a larger size.

Great style and fit
I ordered this coat for my 6 year old son. I couldn't be more pleased with it. It's very well made. He especially loves the built in hand warmers. It's not too bulky so there's no problems buckling in the car with it on. The style is very nice as well. Good colors. Overall I would highly recommend it!

Boys' Down Puffer Jacket
Everyone likes this jacket and especially the little guy who wears it. I like that the construction has baffles to help keep the down from shifting around. Great color quality, The snowblock cuffs on the sleeves are a good feature.

Great Warm Winter Jacket
I have purchased this jacket twice for my son beacuase he loves it so much, once in the winter 2013 and again in the winter 2014. We have it in Tan and Green. It is light weight due to the down and doesn't restict movement. It is also longer in the back to keep snow from getting into his pants and keep him warmer. He loves the hand warmers and wears gloves over them just fine. I will continue to purchase this afordable jacket every year if he will let me.

Love, Love, Love This Jacket!
I noticed some of the reviews said this jacket ran slim/small. My 8 year old son is 50 inches tall and weighs 79 pounds. He's not chubby, but he is a "chunk." I ordered the 8 Husky and it fits perfect! He loves it!

My second one of these--perfect for our cimate
We live in Northern California, where there's no snow, but plenty of chilly, damp fog in the mornings. My son loves this for our morning commute. Super snuggly without weight, and on days that stay cold, it's comfy enough to run around the playground in. I just wish it came in a brighter blue like last year!!

Awesome! It came just in time for SD's blizzard!
This jacket is awesome and kept my 12 year old son warm during and after the early October South Dakota blizzard. This jacket fit my tall and slimly built son perfectly. The sleeves have the slot for the thumb so that the snow does not get inside the jacket. The quality is great and the feathers stay inside the jacket.

Will buy again and again
I bought this jacket a year ago in Little Boy L for my older son who was 6 at the time. It was a bit roomy but still very wearable and he grew into it towards the end of the winter. He is going to wear it this winter as well, as there is still enough room for him. Once he grows out of it, i will definitely replace with a similar product. We live in Toronto, and the jacket is warm enough for our winter, just add a layer underneath on particularly cold days. My son loves the built in hand warmers. I actually bought another one in Mushroom color for my 5 year old in Little Boy M, and it fits him well, with room to spare. And because it was on sale, I only paid $32 for it! Love Lands End for both quality and occasional great deal! I paid full or near full price for the first jacket, and still think it was good value, so the second one felt like I got it for free. :)
Both of my boys are average height for their age.
