My 7 yo wouldn't take this coat off. He loved the color, fit and just the right warmth. I like that the hood is fitted so it stays in place. It's perfect for Georgia weather that can change 20 deg from day to day and doesn't regularly get below 20F. So far, it's holding up to regular washing, which is necessary since little boys are dirt magnets. I bought the S (7-8) which is a tad big on my 50", 7 yo which means he may have a chance of wearing the following fall.
