This is a great coat and very warm without restricting mobility. To me it feels a lot like a down coat, despite having polyester fill. I always thought that down was the best, but this coat has changed my mind. For starters it washes and dries much better than down and doesn’t have that weird feather smell. Despite being made of polyester it still is warm like down.
The inside fabric is bright silver and very unique. It reminds me of something an astronaut would wear. It is made with Columbia’s patented Omni-heat thermal reflective material. It works by trapping heat in and allowing your to stay warmer with a lot less bulkiness. It makes it perfect for playing outside. The hood is especially important because with curly hair, my daughter goes to school with wet hair. This hood is efficient in keeping her head warm from the car to the school. The outside fabric is soft and sleek.
It does have two fleece lined pockets that keep his hands warm. They are soft and cozy. It does not have zippers or buttons so they are very easily accessible.
The coat fits as you would expect for the size. It is large on my daughter so she will be able to get multiple years out of it. It is a nice quality coat that represents the Columbia brand very well. It is a coat that is both parent and child approved!
