The jacket's form is straight fitted, so don't expect to wear layers underneath.
It is a much thinner jacket than expected, but guess that's why it is called "lite". We bought a heavier jacket for our son for true winter weather, but this jacket is perfect for cold fall days/ mild winter days.
I would recommend this product.

Bought for my son. Wears it almost every day. Fits him well, and so far has stood up to his 3-year-old lifestyle.
I would recommend this product.

I bought a M (10/12) for my 8 year old who is very slim and when he put it on, the jacket was very snug. It also seems a little too flimsy for a winter coat
I do not recommend this product.

Great coat!!! We live in the midwest and it is cold and wet here. The waterproof shell is great for the rain and wet snow that we have been receiving lately. Plus the coat keeps our boys very warm even though it is not thick.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this coat for my two boys 5(xs) and my slim 8(s). I always have my boys wear sweaters under them because they aren't very thick. I am ordering a size up for my oldest son because with a sweater under the coat it gets tight. My boys love them.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket does run very "slim"...no room for layering underneath, but I don't feel there is a need for layering. The jacket has warm fill. No need for it to be super thick. Medium fits my very slim 13 yr old well.
I would recommend this product.

I have a 7 year old son that I bought this for Minnesota winters when it is above 20 degrees. We have yet to see the cold weather, but he complains about how hot it is when he tries it on. He is an average sized slim kid and it fits ok around the body, the sleeves are a bit long, which is ok as he sometimes resists wearing mittens. He is excited to wear it.
I would recommend this product.

My son had a Lands End 3-in-1 coat and it was the most frustrating coat ever. The inner fleece coat sleeves would always hang way out of the outer shell sleeves (like 4 to 5 inches!) and it was hard to get his arms in the fleece and the shell if he was wearing a sweatshirt. Frustrated, I wanted to buy him a different winter coat but one that wasn't so expensive because I had already spent a lot on the other coat. I bought this one and he loves it! It's lightweight but warm, fits great (he's about 4'10" and 85 lbs and he wears a large), and looks great. I'm not sure how warm it will keep him once the January/Febuary sub-zero temps hit, but I'm hoping with a sweatshirt, it will be perfect and he won't have to wrestle with the Land's End mess at all this winter.
I would recommend this product.
