Favourite part? Toss up: light weight or grow-along sleeves?
When this jacket arrived on the doorstep, I was concerned with how light it was. How could something this light keep my precious snowflake warm? A cold snap had just settled in, so we tested it... in -29C. The result? 2 hours outside playing, ended because of cold toes.
The Grow-Along sleeves are genius. Since my son is so tall and thin, we have trouble finding a coat that accommodates both his slim build and long arms. These sleeves meant that we could.
The coat is true to size and does everything it claims to do. I intend on buying these coats every year.

Bought for both my boys!
They loved it. VERY lightweight though, definitely not for 30 degrees by itself, but with hoodies my boys were fine (NYC weather!)

Very comfortable, excellent qualify for my 4 year old grandson. He loves it, and he's very picky!

We wanted a nice thin coat that my son could safely wear in his car seat and still keep warm in our MN winter... this coat is perfect! He loves it, it fits him perfectly, and he stays nice and warm going to and from the car.

Don't let the light weight fabric fool you - my son LOVES this jacket!
My 10 year old son LOVES this jacket. He was begging for something stylish like the Burton coats that his friends are wearing but I can't justify that kind of expense for a coat he might wear only a year or two and no younger siblings to hand it down to. This LE Print Stormer jacket fit the bill perfectly and it was a screaming deal on sale. We asked him what his favorite Christmas gift was and he said the mini pool table was #1 and the Stormer Jacket was #2. That's saying a lot in a sea of nice toys, video games, snow tubes and other gifts. I think it makes him feel "cool".
We live in southern WI where it is awfully chilly right now (-39F wind chill as I type this) and I couldn't pry this coat out of his hands if I tried. He was outside sledding with his brother in -10F a couple days ago in this jacket and it (along with his LE squall snow bibs) kept him warm. He LOVES the SnowGuard cuffs with the thumb hole because he never gets snow in the break between his gloves and his jacket anymore. He hooks the thumb hole then puts his gloves on and ta-da - no way for the snow to get in - very cool!
Yes the coat is lightweight and rather thin and I read the other reviews and had reservations when I ordered it, but it sailed through a 9 hour day of snowboarding in 25F weather, an hour of sledding in 10F BELOW zero wind chill and serves him well on the bus ride to school and each day on the playground. I think some of the previous reviews that sent it back and didn?t actually try out the coat in cold weather may have spoken too soon. I wouldn't expect it to be warm enough for him to stand still for an hour in -20F weather and keep him toasty warm. If I wanted that I would have ordered a kids expedition parka. But this jacket is perfect for an active 10 year old at recess, on the slopes, sledding and snowmobiling. If he's going to be outside for a long time, he does layer underneath with LE Thermaskin shirt/pant and a fleece or sweatshirt or UnderArmour if it's really cold, but we are accustomed to layering in the winter.
The fit is true to Lands' End typical sizing. He wears a 12 slim in LE pants and a Med (10-12) in LE shirts and the Med (10-12) Stormer Jacket fits him perfect with room to grow. I think he'll be able to wear it again next year.
I hope Lands' End will continue to offer more options in the vein of "stylish and hip? boy's patterned fabrics for coats. I like to buy LE for our winter gear, but if they are limited to solid or two-tone colored coats, I may have a battle on my hands. Please bring on more patterns in a similar jacket in the coming years! We prefer bright/primary colors, similar to these print Stormers. 6 or 8 different options for colors/patterns would be great!

Great look, and perfect weight for snowboarding
Bought for my 10 year old son who took up snowboarding. Bought matching pants and jacket. Great look, easy to spot on the slopes, too! The jacket is lightweight enough to wear other layers under. Has thumb loops to keep snow out of gloves. Only better addition would be inside if it had a fitted elastic band to keep snow out.

Ok but not great
This jacket is lightweight and warm. It lacks a key feature - a drawstring for the hood. As a result, my grandson says the jacket irritates his neck. Adding a drawstring for the hood seems insignificant so go ahead, Land's End, and add one. Otherwise, the jacket is OK.

Great coat for my toddler
This coat is perfect for my 2 1/2 year old. It's not really bulky so he fits safely in his car seat still, and it keeps him plenty warm when we go out to play. I got a 3T and am thrilled it will fit him this year and next.
