Boys' ThermaCheck®-200 Fleece Hoodie
I purchased the boreal blue in Large(7) for my very tall 4 1/2 year old son (he's the size of a 7 year old). It fits great! We live in NC and will be able to wear in the Spring, Fall, and part/or most of our mild winter. This jacket is better quality then I expected, it is a thicker fleece then you find at the local big stores in the strip malls. The sleeves and length fit my son great, they appear slightly longer then other jackets which is great because when kids play outside clothes move around and up and you don't want them getting cold. This jacket is true to size, it has pockets, a hood, and a nice zipper protector at the top to protect from a pinched neck. My son picked the color and enjoys wearing it! This is a very good quality jacket for the price.

Quality of the fleece is good but my older boys really don't like these colors. They prefer black, charcoal gray, bright orange, bright blue, etc.
The fit and quality were great but please work on the colors. Check out Under Armour, Northface color combos.

Not as good as in previous years
I used to buy this annually for my child but this year I had to return it because of its different fit and material texture than in previous years. Sorry for that because in the past, this was really soft, comfortably, warm, fitted well and looked great. Hope Lands End sells the same quality of this item like it did in the past.

This jacket is extremely soft and quite warm
My 11-year-old son loves this jacket. He said it is really warm and very soft and likes that it includes a hood. It is perfect for the fall weather in New Jersey and he wears it every day to school. I got it in the largest size available for boys (he's big for his age - almost 5 feet tall, and weighs about 135 pounds) and it's a bit roomy but will allow for growing.

My son chose the green and the color is gorgeous. Nice and warm, but not heavy at all. Fit is great. Happy all around with the purchase!

I just love this fleece, it has thicker material and the quality is A+. Love the hood too!

comfortable to about 50 degrees
200 weight fleece is comfortable to about 50 degrees. Kids do abuse cloths with stains and pulling and lack of care (they are of course just being kids). This jacket, turned inside out, launderers and dries very easily. Color, shape and size are maintained after repeated washings.

Looks Un-finished, feels cheap
I was really disappointed with this product. I haven't decided if I will return it because I still need a jacket for my kid. Pros- I like that it has the large teeth zipper which makes it possible for my child to zip the jacket
Con's - You can't see it in the pictures, but I bought the red jacket and part of the thread is matching red and part is a contrast navy blue. But the contrast is right down the middle of the front and is the overlock stitch about (3/8 inch wide), which is really big and really sticks out. And since they are sewing and this is NOT decoration, when they back up the thread and you get two layers of the blue thread on the red, it looks really unfinished. It just looks awful.
Now it says it is 200 thermacheck but it feels very cheap, like the cheapest fleece you can buy. I don't know if this is any different from other jackets. I have not washed it so I don't know what it will look like when I wash it, this was a big disappointment.

Nice jacket, but runs large
This jacket is a nicely made fleece jacket. My 14-year-old son likes the color (gray). However, it runs much larger than other his other LE tops. He is slender and swam in the large, even though we used the size chart. We exchanged the large for the medium.

Excellent fit and great quality
Usually the jackets I buy from elsewhere had to be fold in the arms as they are usually longer than the body or the hood will open near the ears losing it's purpose. This jacket is the correct fit for my 4 yr old son. He wears it with out any complaints( he is picky). It is so lightweight yet warm. I haven't washed it yet so I couldn't comment on that. But I have got fleece from LE before so I'm not worried about it right now.
