NOT A SKI JACKET: NO ZIPPER BRAKE & NO PLACE TO ATTACH SKI WICKET!!!
My eight year old wore the jacket skiing in the rain. It kept her dry and warm. There are 2 problems: 1. The zipper has no 'brake', so it unzips from the top on its own if there are layers like face gaitor and fleece underneath; 2. There are no loops to attach a lift ticket other than the main zipper which when zipped up causes the lift ticket to flap you in the face.

It's the perfect winter coat.
I am extremely satisfied with the style. It looks great on my daughter. It also fits extremely well, even with a heavy layer underneath. Most importantly, it has kept her warm and dry, and she loves it.

Very cute and warm
This coat is very warm and nicely styled. The back waistband has ruffle detail and the pink buttons on the navy blue is very attractive. The hood is attached but that's ok because the fur around the hood doesn't look cheap. Was expensive, but will keep her warm. Fits true to size. My daughter wears a 16 in tops and thats what I bought. Don't think she'll be able to wear it next year thought.

My eleven year old daughter loved this coat. I bought the navy blue with pink trim.
Great quality, just as I expected. My daughter wears a size 12-14 in clothes and I bought size 16 hoping it would be a little big. Coat fits well with a little room to grow. My daughter was very warm last week when the temperature dropped to ten degrees at night here in Ohio. The coat was expensive but would definitely buy again.

Perfect in every way.
Both my daughter and I love it. You can't go wrong with this one.

Beautiful coat and color
My 8 year old daughter loves this coat! She wore it during the recent cold snap in Chicago. Temp was 9 with 30+MPH winds and was very warm. We like the ruffle detail on the front and back. Also like the thumb hole in the sleeves. The raspberry color pairs nicely with the purple snow pants and matches the raspberry boots. We ordered the size M (10-12). It is a little big but I prefer that so she can wear a sweater underneath. She is thin weighs 60lb and is about 51" tall, fits a size 8 LE perfectly. I would have liked this coat to have a fleece lining at least through the body. Also think the price is a little too high but I purchased the coat on sale so I did not pay full price. I wish our local Sears carried these coats in their LE department. They only carry the squall parkas.

Warm coat that looks great too
This parka looks great and is very warm, my daughter loves it. The color is very fresh, I like the look and feel of the material, the snow guard wrist cuffs help a lot. It would have been nice to have separately size 10 and size 12 instead of M (10-12) as my daughter is just about size 10, too big for 7-8, but not yet 10-12, but still the parka sits really nice on her despite being slightly on the big side.

Better than I thought!
This coat is wonderfully priced and a true winter coat. Very comfy, warm and stylish!

Great color and warmth
My daughter is 9 but very tall (like a 12 year old) and thin. We got the 10/12 size in the purple. Love the color and the contrasting trim. It fits big but she'll be able to wear it for several years. Waist cinching would be nice, as someone mentioned, but for us it's not a deal breaker. This coat is more for playing outside and staying warm than looking super stylish. (Though it is stylish enough to wear out and about.) I didn't have a problem with some of the things that other reviewers noted, such as the ruffle or the waist being too high. All were fine for my daughter. I like that the coat is so sturdy, warm, ample pockets, etc. The bulk of this coat is not lined with fleece (that's just in a few spots), so if you are looking for a completely soft interior, this is not for you. However, if it did have fleece throughout, it would probably be too warm as the exterior is down-filled.
