Wise beyond her years
When I asked her what she was doing she said "I am drawing a map so I can find my way home in case you get hurt." Although a bit worried about what she may think about my abilities to navigate the outdoors, I am at least proud that she is forward thinking enough to develop contingency plans.
Princesses Wear Purple

Life definitely moves in ways you would not expect. Never before would young me believe that old me would be cruising an awesome outdoor website (Backcountry.com) with TONS of sweet outdoor gear looking for kids cloths. And let's be honest here, if you by chance are reading this review, you too are in my shoes.
Somehow life took you from cams, fly rods, bike parts, etc... to toddler clothes, diapers, and sleepless nights. It's a weird paradox where things are totally rad and totally suck all at once. I could wax poetically about my statement and this new found position in life, but I must move rapidly to the point before the wife starts yelling at me for only "pretending" to be working at the computer instead of helping with the kids - a completely true accusation.
The Joules's Kinnaird jacket is TOTALLY RAD. Unlike my son (see some of my other reviews for a more detailed explanation here), my daughter is a little princess through and through. And this little princess loves when her daddy gets her "princess" cloths. So when this cool little purple jacket arrived in the mail (don't forget purple is the color of royalty - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyrian_purple) she was absolutely psyched. Throw in the comfort of light weight down and a nice little hood and BAM you have a perfect jacket for the new found fall crispness that is setting in on the New England region. I must also say that I am pretty excited about the future potential of this jacket come winter. It seems to be pretty form fitting so I am sure that it will wear nicely under a shell as an added insulation layer.
I probably should speak to fit. My daughter is 5 years old and is wearing a 6y. If you are a mom you know what I am talking about. If you are a dad please do as I did and reference a mom. But warning dad, DON'T ask them to explain it, just ask them to tell you what size clothes your kids wear and quickly run away before they start just volunteering information.
Cool fall days
