I got the yellow (size 7-8) for my 7 -yr old son on our Costa Rica trip. It's a beautiful bright yellow that stands out yet soothing to the eyes (not like neon bright.) I'm able to spot him easily in the crowd and it kept him dry even though we were walking in the rain for 4 hours. On coolish days the shell jacket acts perfectly as a light cover. It seems breathable too as my son never complained about being hot in it. Another great thing about it is that it's very portable. It folds nice and flat so it takes up very little space in the backpack. The hoodie has an elastic that fits over the head and keeps the hoodie in place/water out. Once the jacket gets wet, If you wipe the surface with dry cloth or paper towel, it can dry completely within an hour or less. We've washed it once in cold water on gentle cycle and just let it dry on the rack. Still looks brand new. Very happy with the quality of the jacket, the discount, fast shipping/packaging, and customer service. Would definitely buy from backcountry.com again and recommend to others.
