My son who has just turned seven hates bulky jackets just like his mommy. He has a few good warm ski jackets (LLBean, Columbia, etc.) but we found ourselves having to do lots of convincing to make him wear his thick jackets as he tried to get away with wearing just his fleece even in 20F weather. I saw this jacket at REI and immediately realized that this may solve the problem. It was soft and light and it fit more like mid-layer piece rather than a typical ski parka that packs in lots of bulk. We ordered it here since it was on sale and now everyone is happy. If it's really cold (below 30F), my son will wear base, fleece and the jacket. If it's warmer, just the base-layer and this jacket is plenty-warm for active boys. I have a feeling that we'll keep buying this jacket in different sizes in the future.

I bought this jacket just to wear around the town although I knew it had many performance type of features. I have plenty of ugly jackets that perform when I go running but I wanted a light-weight but warm jacket that is flattering. Well, I got exactly what I wanted. It fits like gloves (xs for 5'3" & 115lb) and moves with you because of the way it's constructed. It's warm enough by itself over a decent base-layer in Boston winter (avg. ~30F during the day) if you're walking a few steps between car and indoor or if you're being active. It will also be perfect for chilly spring and fall days. It is not going to be enough if you have to stand around in the cold or if it's extremely windy. Easy to pack for travel.
