Toddler Boys' System Stormer Fleece Parka
My 5-Year-Old Loves This Coat
My 5-year-old loves this coat. He picked out the poppy color, which is really a bright fire engine red. I wanted one of the other colors for him. But once we received it I was glad we went for the red. It looks good on him. I bought the Big Boys Size 8, thinking we would put it away for next winter and he could grow into it. But we had a morning down in the low 30s last week so I got it out and let him wear it. It is long on him now, but still looks cute and he told me he stayed warm in it. I love that the sleeves extend so we can definitely get next winter out of it and I'm hoping the one after, too. Great coat.

Nicely made but style is just plain weird!
Have bought my three kids the LE Expedition jackets every year and have loved them except they're a bit short. I ordered this one in red for my 8-year-old son and it was great in the front but the back has this very feminine elasticized waist. He looked like a girl from the back. I returned it and just ordered the more expensive Expedition style.

This jacket is awesome and looks great as well. I like that there are 2 actual jackets and my son loves the thumb holes on the sleeve of the inner jacket! Highly recommend!

A disappointed customer
We are very disappointed with this product. The jacket is very warm, and my son loved it a lot. Unfortunately, the zipper fell of after two weeks of wearing the jacket. I am returning it back.

My son is 14, outgrew so much since the last ski season, this jacket was the last minute shopping before we go skiing this season. He is about 5' 7", I ordered size 18. The jacket was not too big, nor too small for him. He skied wearing this jacket comfortably having a camera in the inside pocket, whatever he needed. It kept him warm even though the weather was really warm and he is always warm.

Beautiful coat... Runs small
Disappointed and not being able to keep the coat. It looked great and gave the feel of warmth...

Great at discounted price
Bought this for my 9 yr son. He's not fashion conscious but likes the color selection and thumb hole features. It does have an elastic gathering in back (I didn't see that in the detailed description). Easy to separate/reassemble for weather fluctuations. Outer shell isn't too thick and a bit crunchy sounding when moving about which may dissipate with wear over time. He seems to be warm in it and didn't complain about being cold even in sub zero temps recently. Overall a good buy at 50% off and free shipping.

Not a fan?
My boys (3 & 6 years old) each picked out this jacket this year. It's a nice looking coat and the versatility is what we were looking for living in southern Pennsylvania. The colors are vibrant and the fit of the coat is great. However, neither one of my boys can easily get the coat off by themselves. The inner fleece jacket sleeves are not lined at all and therefore pull out each time they try to take the coat off by themselves. The fleece liner has a velcro tab that slips through a loop on the inside sleeve of the shell, but the velcro is not strong enough to hold it when they are slipping their arms out of the coat. Since the sleeves pull out each time, there is difficulty putting the coat back on every time as well. It's frustrating and my boys frustrated because they have to ask for help putting the jacket back together EVERY TIME. I have other jackets where a snap has been used to hold the pieces together and the snap seems entirely more functional. Lands End is my first choice on outerwear for my children, but this year it was a purchase fail.
I gave it two stars because it is warm, comfortable when on and attractive looking? but it is a PITA when getting ready to go or arriving.

This jacket is true to size and warm for my 6 year old. One problem is the fleece under jacket sleeve comes out of the outer jacket sleeve EVERY time he takes the coat off. Another is that the outside fabric of the coat is not very durable and ripped easily. Unfortunately I'll be returning this.
