This is a nice jacket! I would consider it a jacket, but I have noticed Free Country jackets and coats tend to be extremely warm. It was much bigger than I anticipated, so I will be exchanging it for a Large. But I will definitely be purchasing it again. We live in Missouri, and our winters haven't been too terribly cold, so chances are, this will be my son's coat for the winter because it is so warm.
My son is thin and he is on the small side for an 8 year old. He lost his last Free Country jacket and it is not so heavy that it is cumbersome but it is amazing that a jacket so light can hold in so much warmth and be warm.
