Warm lightweight jacket, but easily ripped
I bought this jacket in blue for my 5 year old daughter a few weeks ago. She's worn it to school for about a week now, as the Autumn weather is just beginning to kick in. The jacket is perfect in its warmth and lightweight fit, for that I would give 5 stars. BUT, I hadn't considered that the fabric that makes it lightweight is actually quite frail. Today she came home from school with some big rips in the front of the jacket. She said she had been climbing on some rocks and must have slid her stomach across them, causing the rips. I'll patch it, but its a bit of a bummer to have this happen so easily after spending $80 on a jacket. In the future, I will send her to school with this as a layer under a stronger shell so that she can play like a kid without worrying about destroying her clothes.
