Girls' Stormer Snowboard Jacket
I bought this jacket for my daughter in September and have been pleasantly surprised to discover that, despite its lack of bulk, it has kept her warm on the coldest days. She has worn it over layers for hiking and playing in -20 C and below and never complained of being cold. She loves the colour and the fact that she can move freely in it.

Colors nice, material very poor
As the description said it is for snow.. I was disappointed on the quality of the fabrics, not for snow. We had to buy another jacket.. it is very light for winter days

Great warm jacket!
I bought this for my daughter for a ski trip and basic cold weather jacket. The temp was 9 degrees and wind chill was below zero on the mountain, but she was comfortable and dry and loves the color and style, and it was easy to spot her on the slopes as most of the girls were wearing other colors. Glad we bought it!

This jacket is wonderful...until you try to wash it
I have been ordering winter coats for my 3 kids from Lands' End for 8 years and have always been happy. They are warm, fit true-to-size, and wash well. Infact, after many washes throughout the winter, the jackets always look brand new. This year, I decided to order the Stormer Snowboard jacket instead of the Squall Parka because my kids wanted something different. The jacket is exactly as described, and I had no complaints...until I washed it. Stains do not come out of this jacket! Every stain leaves behind a mark on the shiny fabric. My daughter's jacket is covered in dark "stains" that I cannot get out. I have never had this problem before and have been able to wash the same stains out of my son's Squall Parka with no problem. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this jacket because of the material.

The jacket did not wear well and the zipper broke.
Within a couple wears of this jacket and ski pants, there was visible scuffs and holes on the ski pants and jackets. The zipper was easily jammed and has just recently fallen off completely. We got 3 months use out of this ski suit I paid $150 for. Not good quality.

Love the jacket
By some reason, this item has not gotten many reviews. I want to correct this situation. I got this jacket for my daughter (11yo but very tall). So, I got the largest kid's size I could (size 16 regular). The jacket is light, thin but water & wind proof. My daughter absolutely loves it. The hand-coughs are extremely helpful and keep her hands from wind. The hood is adjustable; the length is perfect (it's below the hips). My kid is very active and the light-weight is just perfect. Also, the jacket went perfect with the snow bibs. It's perfect for Nova Scotia winter. It works great with thin top during those warmer but slushy and windy winter days. And, it works just as well with an extra layer for those days when it's extremely cold. My daughter wore it at +5C and at -18C. And she was very pleased. The color combination and shape of the jacket is not a kid-like: it actually give a nice figure-shape. Besides, the teal color is absolutely fabulous! We got tons of compliments on this jacket.

Very warm and lightweight!
My daughter loves her new coat! The first day my daughter wore this coat it was 19 degrees outside - she walked home from school with a short sleeve t-shirt under her coat and she said she was perfectly comfortable! I was shocked and upset when I found her sweater was in her backpack- but she was still warm. It seems light -my husband called it a spring jacket- but my daughter is very warm in this coat. She also played outside with this coat, her hat and mittens in 25 degrees for over an hour the other day...she was perfectly fine. She also loves the green/blue color combo. Great coat for a sporty kid that doesn't want to be weighed down just because it cold outside! And no more whining when we get into the icy cold car in the morning (all three are in lands end coats and all are warm!)

Appears Lightweight but does the job
i was very reluctant to keep this jacket for my 9 years old daughter thinking it wouldnt provide enough warmth. She skied this past weekend with temperatures at the base coming in at 2 degrees. She was never cold. She wore her usual base layer thermals and vneck zip thermal. I had brought another layer to the mountain and she refused to wear it. She loves the jacket.

Too lightweight. Why bother?
Why is this called a snowboard jacket? It's way too thin and lightweight to be useful for anything involving snow. Sending it back!

Warm and Lightweight perfect for a busy kid
This fits very well is true to size, appears to be very well made and good quality. I hope this will last my daughter a couple of winters. The warmth will be perfect for Mississippi winters and it is very lightweight which she loves. She is also thrilled that it perfectly matches her Lands End rolling backpack for school.
