A winter three-for-all.
Keep things warm, dry, and simple this winter with the Columbia Bugaboo Interchange Boys' Parka, which combines a wind- and waterproof outer shell with a warm, heat-reflective inner fleece to give your wee ripper weather protection from fall to spring. The outer shell, which is made of tough nylon, is outfitted with a waterproof and breathable Omni-Tech membrane and has taped critical seams to keep him dry when he's hitting the ski hill on the weekend or hiking on a mild but damp day. Inside, a zip-out fleece uses an Omni-Heat reflective lining and warm polyester fabric to keep him toasty, whether he's wearing it on its own or zipped into the shell on cold, soggy days. Columbia designed the Bugaboo with an Outgrown growth system so you can extend the sleeves for growing groms, and threw in plenty of pockets and a removable hood to keep him (relatively) organized and totally snug against winter's worst.

There comes a day in a kids life where they move on from the cheap big box junk outerwear. I got my 7yo this jacket and I like it. It has a thicker fabric then other mid to upper end coats which for me is a good thing. My son likes to use his stomach on the sledding hill as much as his sled. And I have no idea where he came up with the
