Hi, I love this jacket for my son but I'm concerned there looks to be no hood..?? I looked at the Ama Dablam and that one is similar to the Marmot that I own, I know that one will be warm enough & has the hood but I love this style much more. Any advice on a jacket that has the style of this one but the warmth of the Ama Dablam? Also, if I do decide to go with this one, I'm not sure what size to go with. My son is 8, on the small side. In tops he's an 8 but can still get away with wearing a 7 at times. Thanks for any advice you can give!

A couple of years ago I went on the search for the perfect winter jacket. For me that was stylish yet VERY warm and I hit the jackpot with this! I bought and returned numerous jackets including Northface, Patagonia and Canada Down. .not one was as warm as this jacket. 2 years later (and used SO often ) it still looks brand new. I wouldn't have been surprised if this jacket started to fall apart from the wear I've gotten out of it but I can honestly say not a single issue! I get compliments all the time and have convinced many friends to try it (they too now live in it) If you're on the fence about which jacket to go with, I did all the comparing for you and this was the winner, hands down! As for fit, I'm 5'3 and about 95 pounds, it comes to my knees and fits perfectly. If you plan on wearing a thick sweatshirt layered underneath, it may get a little snug under the arm (I have never had the need to layer, even in below zero temps...and I'm always freezing!)
