My little boy is five and a half. The coat fits him well and with the zip out fleece he'll stay warm through two seasons. Good job.

I purchased 2 of these for my boys 5 & 6 yrs old. My 5 y/o is a skinny 43 lbs and is 3'9", while my 6 y/o is a solid 73 lbs and 4' 3 1/2 ". We went with XS and M size respectively, which fit great, but allow ample room for growth through the season, PLUS, if we get really lucky, the OUTGROWN feature may allow us another year of use. They chose the bright red, which truly is a very nice, bright red and the dark backcountry plaid, which I thought was hideous until the item arrived. It has very nice shades of green with thin lines of bright green (not lime green, but more like a crayola green) to make it 'pop'. It really does look nice in person. I looked at the jackets on 3 different computer screens and all of them made both of these coats appear darker and muted in color compared to in-person. The boys love the lightweight feel of these jackets compared to the bulky jackets they wore last year. Although lightweight, the jackets get hot since it's still mid-Nov and we haven't been hit with the midwest, big, blast yet. I'm sure they'll be perfectly comfortable when the snow arrives, just as the hubby loves his Bugaboo. We love the layering and the fact that they're waterproof. We almost went with jackets elsewhere for more exciting color combo's (hint, hint, Columbia), but we stuck with Columbia due to the waterproof feature. If I could change one thing, I'd prefer a lifetime warranty similar to another big name company; these jackets are for young kids and you're paying such a pretty penny for this jacket that I'd expect a lifetime warranty if the quality is truly exceptional. We haven't had these long enough to determine how they will hold up in the end when used by 2 hard playing boys, but if they hold up like the hubby's Bugaboo, I'll be thrilled!
I would recommend this product.

When my son wears a long sleeve shirt with this coat the sleeves are so tight, especially around the wrist, that is it nearly impossible to get off without turning the sleeves inside out. Not only that, but after wearing only 3 times one of the sleeve connectors tore out. I wish I had not taken the tags off and just returned the coat for a refund. Other than the sleeves the coat is true to size.
I do not recommend this product.

Bought this for my son a couple of weeks ago, right before the coldest weather we've had in 40 years, and it has been brilliant! The coat is very well constructed. Even the tabs that hold the line in the coat held up when my son tried yanking it out of the shell! (He didn't realize it was attached) Both pieces are great stand alone and together keep him very warm. The stain/water repellent works great. He spilled hot chocolate all over the front of the jacket and it just wiped clean.
I would recommend this product.

Got this jacket for our son to wear during the the cold days in Nashville, Tn. The jacket is true to size, and he really likes it. The jacket is very warm, and keeps him dry during the rain. Will buy him another as he grows.

The jacket fits well and is very versatile with the option to zip out the liner and just use the liner as a light jacket for cool days. My son has been wearing the jacket when it gets in the low teens and says it keeps him very warm.

Once again Columbia has not failed. This Bugaboo is great at protecting any child that fights the bitter cold like we do in Minnesota. With record lows, I feel comfort and safe in letting my kids go to school and out to play.

My son wore his new Bugaboo today and told me it was a 10 out of 10, he's 10, (years old that is). He said it was almost too warm for today's conditions, which were sunny and between 20 aned 30 degrees fahrenheit.

I just purchased my third bugaboo jacket (I have two little boys), and overall we have been very pleased. The first jacket has lasted two years before we outgrew it, but it is still in relatively good condition. My only complaint is the jacket is difficult for my 4 year old to take off because the fleece sleeves constantly stick to his shirt and turn the arms inside out, which is apparently quite infuriating to him. The jacket is warm and is pretty true to size.
I would recommend this product.

My youngest son (4 y/o) was growing out of his Land's End parka and wanted a new red "big boy" coat. Unlike my oldest who always measures 90th percentile, my youngest is 50% percentile height. Most of the coats at his size are the down puffer coats which he considers "little boy" coats. The combo coats tend to run large. This fit perfectly with room to grow. Also a nice bright red (oppose the the duller "brick")without all the adornments (My wife didn't like all the details that came with the Spyder coats). Not quite as warm as his Land's End parka so you may need to layer a little bit more, but otherwise the perfect coat (especially for skiing), and with the sale at Columbia, at a more than perfect price.
I would recommend this product.

My 9 y/o son likes this jacket. It is warm and looks great. He wore it while house hunting in Illinois during below zero weather with no complaints of being cold. Nice quality and function, as it can be converted to a fleece jacket, or lighter weight outer jacket.
I would recommend this product.

Purchased for Grandson's birthday. Nice warm without being too bulky. Love the zip out fleece lining and the fact that neckline zips up high. Hood is nicely lined with fleece also.

I bought this for my 5 year old son to wear next winter as a 6 year old and hopefully the following winter as a 7 year old. These are the recommended sizes. It is just barely bigger than the coat he has now that he wore as a 4-5 year old, so I doubt it will be long enough as a 6 year old and definitely won't be long enough as a 7 year old.
I would recommend this product.

My 13 year old is quite picky about jackets. This one is the perfect mixture of materials to make it not bulky, yet very warm. It's got the "grow" feature, but I went ahead and bought a size up from his usual size 14. It's perfect and will fit next year too.
I would recommend this product.
