My son has worn this jacket for two winter seasons and it has held up great. I love the way it looks and my son has never complained about the cold while wearing. We live in interior Alaska and even at 20 below he is comfortable in this jacket. My son is a kid that is always hot. Living in Alaska and staying warm is all about layers. This jacket is a great layer and I love it's not puffy. We recently played outside for three hours it was 25 degrees and no complaints of being cold.
