The jacket looks really sharp on my son. Love the two tone colors. It is lightweight but keeps him warm. I wasn't 100% confident about sizing and wanted the option to exchange or return if I needed to, but it was all okay. Very warm and cool looking. Easy on and off. Very practical for an 11 year old boy. For a boy who doesn't even like to wear a winter coat, he does wear this one. I'd say this is a win-win.
This coat is everything that you think NorthFace should be. Very good quality. My son is fairly tall and skinny. This coat actually is long enough in the body and arms for him which doesn't happen too often.
"Love this coat! The blue is very nice!! VERY WARM too!"
I bought this for my son for school recess and sledding. Very warm! Fits true to size and the blue is really a SHARP color. If needed for really cold days, you could layer a thermal jacket underneath but so far that hasn't been necessary! Definitely warm enough for the average winter day!
"LOVE this coat for my son! Very warm! Makes my son look even cooler than he already is :)"
Very warm! Great for school recess in snow (can always put the thermal underneath for those below freezing days.. but not necessary). Sleeves are nice and long to cover wrists and waist long enough to cover waistline when playing basketball at recess.. LOVE IT!!!
Ok. Well i was starting college this fall and i was worried about my freezing walks across campus this winter. NOT ANYMORE! Because of my new Aconcagua jacket. I got an XL.. It fits a LITTLE snug. But i don't care. This is the BEST winter jacket I have ever owned. It's puffy but not too puffy. Just the way I like them. And the bottom line is. I LOVE this jacket!! I'm wearing it right now. Because I love it so much!
"My Grandson absolutely LOVES this Jacket"
Okay, this review is on behalf of my Grandson, who doesn't type that well...but he knows what he wants and recognizes quality when he sees it. He was thrilled when he opened the package that contained this jacket, in black. In fact, he told me that his MeMe and I gave better presents than Santa himself. Now he's walking all over the neighborhood showing it off to everyone he sees, including total strangers. Until today, I had no idea that he had been admiring my North Face jacket for about 2 years, secretly longing for his own. That day came today. Perfect fit, appears to be well made, and making my Grandson's day has made my day.
