Boys' Sherpa Lined Hoodie
This is my second round of these jackets - I bought the plaid version for all of my kids 4 years ago, thankfully a bit large. A couple of very mild winters later, I'm not sure that they wore anything else for three seasons over at least 2 years. Countless wearings, countless washings -- never a blip. One of the best items I have ever purchased.
When my youngest looked like a sausage stuffed into his beloved jacket, I decided it was time to get a new one. No plaid, of course, but this jacket so far seems heir to its predecessor in fit and quality. I've only washed it a couple of times, but the color and fit are holding up beautifully. The sherpa lining in the body of the jacket stops a lot of wind, and my son is very happy to have the same feel inside and out from his old one (even if he does miss the plaid). This winter is already more stout than the past several, but he went out this morning in weather in the mid teens in this jacket, a Lands End down vest, and a hat and gloves.
Looking forward to another couple of years of serious wear out of these jackets.

Great for Deep South Winters
My two boys, 6 and 8 years old, love these jackets! The weight is perfect for Deep South winters and they hold up wash after wash after wash. Wonderful product! Please, keep stocking these for years to come!

My grandson loved this hoodie jacket.
I picked up this hoodie jacket for my 8 year old grandson this fall and he begged me to get more because he didn't want to wait for me to wash it. I bought two more. They wash and dry beautifully. They fit him perfectly and run true to size. I am very happy with them.

This is by far my older son's favorite hoodie...EVER. I have to pry it off of him at the end of the day and have forbidden him to sleep in it. Might have to have Santa bring another one in a different color.

Wonderful, Comfortable Jacket
This is a great jacket! I got the M (5-6) for my skinny, small 5 year old and it fits perfectly this year. We were also able to use it last year, but it was a little big. We've washed it numerous times and it still looks great. My son says it is very comfortable, and the zipper is easy for him to do. I find some zippers are easier for him than others, and this one is great for little kid hands. The jacket has a nice weight to it, so it's perfect for those 40 degree mornings at the bus stop. I'm ordering the next size up to have on hand for when he outgrows this one.

My two sons don't like to wear jumpers. If they could, they'd go about in shorts and tees all through the year. I bought one of these hoodies for each of them for next winter and suggested they try them on for size once they arrived before I put them away. But once they tried them on, there was no way they were giving them back. The softness of the lining was a huge hit and they are always happy to wear them on a chilly day. They've been washed several times now and the lining has stayed soft and they look as good as new. I think we'll be buying several more of these as they grow!

OK to Size Up
I got these jackets for my boys (10 and 4.5), it will be perfect for our mild TX winter. They appear to be great quality. Many of the reviews state that the jacket runs big, so I bought their clothing sizes (M10-12 and S4). Unfortunately I will have to exchange them for the next size bigger. These jackets may be a little roomy in the chest area, but they do not run small. If your child is close to the next size, I'd say its ok to size up.

Need to buy a second one to get my son to let me launder the first
My 10-year-old son LOVES this sweatshirt. It is warm and soft. I am buying him a second one so that I can get the first one off of him long enough to get it into the washing machine. My son is about 56 inches tall and weighs 65 pounds. The medium (10-12) fits well with enough room in the sleeves to roll up the cuffs. It will last him thru this winter and probably the next. Great buy! I plan to get them for my other 3 boys.

Nice little jacket!
I read all the reviews and for my 7 year old granddaughter who is 67 lbs and nice and tall I was almost afraid to get the 10/12 which I always get her! I'm so glad I at least got that and not the 8 because that would have been TINY! The next size up would have been more than fine since this will not make it thru this winter. I am a little disappointed since I always listen to the reviews and usually get great advice. We are in Arizona, so the lining in the sleeves doesn't mean that much to me, but in sizing, these DO NOT run large! Please keep that in mind when ordering! Thx!

Love it so much this is our 2nd one!
My son loves this jacket! He out grew the first one and was really excited when the second one arrived. My son is really picky and hates wearing a bulky winter jacket. This jacket is perfect to wear until we have to get out his Lands End lightweight down jacket. We live in Michigan and this jacket is perfect for fall and spring. Love Lands End quality and customer service. I didn't even know this jacket was available this year until I received an email from Lands End. I appreciated the email and you made my son very happy! He calls this his fuzzy coat because the inside is so soft and fuzzy.
