Very nice looking jacket. Red is a great color. It's not lined, though, and what we really need is a lined raincoat for chilly, rainy days. So I will return it for that reason. Otherwise, it's a really cool raincoat.

While this jacket was comfortable on my son, it is just so cheap that I can't justify paying this much for it. It's really nothing that you couldn't buy at Target. Really. No lining, no velcro for better fit, no vents, no lining. Very, very minimal. This jacket should really cost about $20, at the most. I gave two stars for that, but it's fine on comfort and fit. So happy that Zappos is such an amazing company to make returns easy. I really appreciate that.

This jacket is so worth the money. I had been buying rain slickers but they just seem to get in the way with their bulk. This jacket fits closer to the body and has provided excellent weatherproof-ness in the Pacific Northwest and Northern California rain storms. I bought the XXS for my four year old and it is not too big and fits a fleece jacket underneath. Perfect!

The sizing seemed a little off. Had to send the item back twice for my average sized 8yr old, who ended up with a size 14-16! Great jacket and take care in ordering up for your child.

Overall, a good raincoat for boys. However, we found it runs small. I have a 10 yr old who usually wears a 10-12, and I had to order an xl for him in order for him to get more than one season's wear out of it.

This jacket is very light weight. It is best for summer and spring rainy days. There isn't any lining (other than the mesh inside) so if you use it in the fall then you'd have to layer it. My son loves it because it is so light and easy for him to get on and off but I wanted something a little heavier. Overall, a good rain jacket.

This coat was perfect for my son. Fits true to size. Only think I did not like was the Velcro pieces over the zipper. It was hard to zipper because the zipper kept getting stuck on the Velcro pieces. The Velcro also pulled the inside lining of the coat. I like that the arms have elastic by the wrists.

Jacket has the quality North Face always delivers, but is strictly for year-round rain (no lining for added warmth. The reason for my less-than-stellar review is that the arms are long and the jacket is very short. I purchased this item for my grandson, who has extremely long arms and legs, but is a 12-year-old of average height, and wears a size 12 in shirts or tops. I ordered the size 14-16 expecting it to be generous; however, I was very disappointed. The sleeve length is perfect (therefore allowing for no growth) and the length of the jacket is much too short. As a result, I have had to order a size 18-20.

This coat is unfortunately not what it seems to be. First of all it has no lining which makes it super thin, so unless you live in a warmer climate and only need it for those rainy days then maybe it is ok but definitely not for this price. It is way too expensive for this quality. Second of all it is not true to the size. It runs kind of small and short, too, so unless your child is skinny and short I would suggest looking for a different coat to purchase.

Very small for size 6, very short torso fit, and super thin flimsy jacket - not what I expected from North Face. The LL Bean version is much more substantial surprisingly, but we will keep it as a very light weight windbreaker/rain jacket because it can be compacted tightly and my son really likes the color. I lined up the size 6 against the LL Bean size 4 and they are identical.

The quality of the jacket generally seems very good. Unfortunately, the sleeves are very long and the jacket body is very small. The sizing is disproportionate, so different size jackets don't help.
