I bought this jacket in the purple pattern for my 10-year-old daughter. She loves the color and the features of this coat, specifically that the hood fits well and keeps the cold wind out. We live in a northern climate and she walks a few blocks to school. A couple times this fall she said she was a bit TOO warm - a good problem to have. I'm sure it will be perfect when the real cold weather hits in January. We bought her a charcoal gray hat to match, which looks very nice with the purple pattern.
This is a great jacket; my daughter loves it and it has been great for the early cold weather in Minnesota this year. The arms seem to be a bit long for the size of the jacket, but still give it 5 stars because it doesn't interfere with mittens. It was a great price at Scheels, too!
