Great Jacket for winter sports, sleeves can be tricky!

I have a 6yo daughter who's on the small side (42in tall, 36 lbs) but she skis and loves playing in the cold, wintery outdoors! This jacket has plenty of room to grow into for next year and it it;s not bulky so she can maneuver well on the slopes in it (with her Bugaboo ski pants on) while staying warm and dry.
The sleeves have the added feature of long, inner sleeves that reach up to the elbow (so that ski gloves can slide over them and prevent cold air/snow from getting in). While it's a great feature for parents, it seems to frustrate my daughter when she's in a rush to get her coat on for school and head out the door. With more practice (and patience) I think she'll appreciate it (I certainly do!). Little details like the soft zipper cover (keep her chin from getting scratched) and the Velcro strap on the back of the hood (to help pull back the front visor just a teensy bit so the jacket doesn't hang over her eyes) make this a great jacket and I'm sure we'll be enjoying it for at least another winter season :)
I would recommend this product.

I love the jacket, so does my 2.5-year-old toddler. But this jacket is just not wearable. I bought her a XXS, and while the body hits her hip and hugs her just right (she's taller than average and a little slim), the sleeves are twice as long as her arms.
Sad to say, I'm going to have to return the jacket. If your kid could deal with the extremely long sleeves though, it would be an excellent jacket: soft, light, and warm. I own a Columbia jacket with Omni-heat reflective myself, and really wanted to get one for my daughter, but doesn't seem like it's possible.
I do not recommend this product.

My daughter loves this jacket. The color is vibrant, it keeps her warm with Omni heat and she loves the cozy pockets. The hood is great also. It looks great and is super functional as well!
I would recommend this product.

My daughter (5 years old) LOVES this coat- very easy to compress into her backpack, yet super warm. Rugged enough to withstand recess and sledding, but also looks great with some of her dressier outfits. I will definitely be buying the same one when she outgrows this size.
I would recommend this product.

Amazing jacket, superb quality and perfect for Wisconsin winters. Omni heat technology allows jacket to not be bulky and keep in the warmth - perfect for an active child. Note, jacket runs small and I would suggest getting the next size up (my child prefers a slightly loose fit).
I would recommend this product.
