Boys' Waterproof Squall System 3-in-1 Parka
Beautiful Color and Feel of this Jacket
My son wears a size 10, I ordered the size S for him. This jacket fits him well and may be a little loose. My son is not tall and is smaller build. He loves the fleece lining inside as it keeps him warm, and he likes having the different pockets. We have not had the opportunity to wear the jacket or fleece separate, but I always like this option in these jackets. My son is always cold, so he will wear the fleece all spring and early summer.
The color is dynamic - CHESAPEAKE BLUE

The coat is perfect for cold weather.
I bought this coat for my grandson. It fits him great. He really likes this coat.

Love this jacket
Such a great fit, and so comfortable for our little boy. The two pieces zip together easily, and he usually wears them separate for different conditions. Highly recommend it!

Son loves his jacket
The jacket fits my 12 year old son perfectly. Didn't love the color choices, ordered the blue at first and it wasn't our taste (too bright). We are satisfied with the grey and black.

I've been buying this coat for 11 years. I started with my first grandchild and now that I have 5, these coats have been handed down to all my grandchildren year after year. I usually buy 1-2 every year. This year I bought for my 4 year old grandson. It's a tiny bit long but at that age, it's exactly what I want. Keeps the little ones nice and warm. He'll get at least 2 winters out of it since the coat never seems to wear out. It also washes beautifully on gentle cycle. It's a very warm coat and I love the styling.

By far the best winter coat / parka I have every brought. It's on 4 years of use in a row!
We get brutal cold Chicago weather, so I got this for my son in Kindergarten knowing they spend some time out doors. He is now in 3rd grade and it still fits perfectly. The arms stretch as the kids grow, the size S 7/8 has fit age 5 - going on 9! I brought it a little big in the first place. I washed this regularly and it does not show any signs of wear. I just came back to buy a girls version for my daughter.
Changes- the lining was changed to fleece, GREAT, now it's warm right when she puts it on. The buttons have been replaced by velcro, NOT good. Either you velcro it up to their chin and they are uncomfortable or don't velcro it & their chest is exposed. Maybe a scarf? And I hope the velcro doesn't wear out.
also the faux fur hood liner in NO longer included which did add a cute touch to it.

Disappointed - New but Not Improved
We purchased this coat following ownership of the same one twice before. My now 6 year old has gone through 2 of the "original" version of this coat for 4 winters. This years version is disappointing. If you look carefully you'll see that although it is named waterproof squall parka 3 in 1 it is not the same as the waterproof squall parka jacket. The front pockets are very different and terribly small. There is only one top side pocket as compared to two and this one is also very very small. I am ver disappointed. My son travels very far for school and I will have to find another coat that suits his needs. Very sad!

Versitile winter coat
We have been getting squall 3 in 1 for about 8 years - they are great coats.

A winter coat without functional pockets...
I purchased the 3-in-1 parka for my 7-yr old who had the 2012 version (size 5/6) which lasted for 2 years with the great extender sleeves and the 3-in-1 features were terrific. The 2014 version does not have the inside mesh pocket on the exterior shell which was great to hold a hat or heavier gloves. Additionally, the exterior pockets are now zipper side pockets as opposed to velcro close front pockets. He is unable to get his hand inside the pockets and is an average size kid. He would have to be 3 years old to use these pockets and winter coat with no place to keep gloves or place your hands is not a functional winter coat. My son (especially) and I are disappointed and will be returning it.

I ordered this for my 6 year old as the next step up from the Squall jacket he's had for the past two years (which has held up amazingly and looks new for his 4 year old brother who gets it this winter). I wanted him to have a longer coat that fell lower than the hip level of the jacket so we tried this parka. This is a well-made coat--nice materials and construction but I'm going to be sending it back because the front pockets are too small. My son is not large, nor are his hands--but these pockets will not accommodate his hands with the jacket on. This must be an oversight on an otherwise well-made coat. If your boys don't use pockets, this won't be an issue.
