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.

Bought this for my 6 year old son and he LOVES it. Velcro overlay conceals the zipper which he thinks is very cool - but this added feature keeps him warmer and dryer. The color is great, very bright and makes him easy to spot in crowds. The hood stays on, unlike other rain jackets where it easily blows off when it's windy out. Highly recommend this jacket, it's great quality and a bug hit with my picky son.

who doesn't love TNF!! I have purchased several north face for my entire family and you cannot beat it. The quality is second to none, the material can be thoroughly abused before it shows any signs of wear and tear. You can wash it uncountable times and the color holds true. It will get passed down from child to child and will hold up . I have yet to see the destruction of any north face product. I buy gender neutral colors and it makes its way through all 3 of my kiddos with plenty of life left to pass on to my niece and nephew. perfect rain/windbreaker , throw a nice cozy hoodie underneath and you are all set.

My 7 year old loves this jacket. It slides on over his down jacket easily, and keeps him dry while he runs around in the rain/snow. The blue is a good looking color too.

I was looking for a lightweight rain jacket for our son. This jacket is perfect! I did go up a full size and I am glad I did - it seems to run a little small.

So, I know this is a jacket for little boys. I also know that, as a small woman living in Texas, it's pretty hard to find high quality, well-fitting rain gear that's comfortable in (sometimes very, very) warm weather. With that in mind, I, at 5'2, 125 pounds, and a size 4 in most women's clothing, decided to purchase a Boy's Large Raincoat. It's maybe the best fitting coat I've had. Fits perfectly through the hips and shoulders, exactly the right length in the arms, very breathable, with room for layers if needed (which, again, Texas). Plus the colors are cute! I got the green and grey which actually works well as a technical gear element in a lot of my outfits. So, petite women of the world, if you're reading this, you can buy a North Face Women's XS for twice the price, or...

Great spring rain coat/wind breaker. Keeps rain out great and warmer than expected for thin coat. Sleeves ran short, bought for 11 yr old son who normally wears a medium 10/12. Had to return and get a large. Other than that he loves the coat. Price is high, however with Northface you are paying for the brand but it will last much longer than something cheaper.

This is my second time purchasing this jacket for my son & we love it. Great for rainy days and a lightweight cover. He wore the first one for 3 years and it's still in awesome condition too, just outgrew it.

Super cute coat. It's a great water repellant and is lightweight and breathes. Worked wonderfully. Some may think it's cheap because of how lightweight it is, but it kept my 5 year old a lot drier than my cheap coat kept me.

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!

Overall coat is good. Unfortunately had to return for a larger size. My son is 11 yrs old and in size 12/14. So I first ordered a L (14/16.) Well it fit perfect with a short sleeve underneath. I wanted my son to have it for at least 2 years and to also wear layers underneath so I sized up to an XL.

This lovely jacket suits my son very well and fits perfectly true to size. It is also his favorite color and I appreciate the wide selection of colors. The only issue is that it is pretty flimsy - if it's raining hard enough to wear a jacket, it is almost always cold enough to need a jacket - and at this price point, I'd like to see something that is lined or at least a better windbreak.

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.

Bought this for my daughter who had a black one in a smaller size. This one is definitely "cheaper" in quality than the one we purchased a couple of years ago. The materials are not as nice. Despite the comparison, it is still a nice jacket and perfect for the occasional light rain in Southern California.

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.
