I couldn't find a police officer costume in my son's size anywhere...at least not at this price. I didn't want to spend around $** (including tax) for a costume he would probably only wear once. Although Overstock.com's price was a little more than I wanted to spend (around $**,) I was able to use a discount, get free shipping, and there was no sales tax. AND my son was the cutest kid on Halloween in this costume! A lot of people asked me where I purchased this, and I was proud to say "Overstock.com!"
This is such a complete police uniform! If your son or daughter wants to look like an authentic public servant, this is the costume to get. It is lacking a weapon, but Little Boy swiped his sister's nerf gun, and the look was complete. The holster is only made of vinyl, so it was not long before some rough use caused it to rip. (I could fix it on my sewing machine, but already I am trying to think of what we will use to replace it, because drawing and replacing your weapon causes wear!) The embroidered badge and seals make the wearer look very official. Note that, while the buttons are real, there are no button holes. Instead there is a strip of velcro behind the buttons (which in my opinion makes everyone's life easier. There is enough small motor skill practice with putting on the belt. 5-year-old needs help with the belt). The pants are nothing special; they just slip on, elastic waste band, no pockets. My favorite features are the cap (SO darned cute!) and the big POLICE across the back shoulders. Costume comes with a whistle, too, which we "lost" if you know what I mean, but it worked well, that's for sure. All in all, Little Boy loves it, and the hours of imaginative play have been worth the cost of this product.
This really is a great costume or dress up outfit for your little one. It's easy to get on and off and it looks very much like a "real" uniform!

Got this for my step-son's 8th birthday. He'd asked for a police uniform and I couldn't find one in any store. It looks fairly realistic. He's been having a blast with it. I do wish I'd ordered a larger size, because the sleeves and legs are a little short.
If your little person likes to play dress up this is a great product! It looks just like the real deal. I work for law enforcement and so I was pretty particular. My little person loves to play "good guy, bad guy" so this was a big hit. The only draw back was the hat, it did not stay on very well so I removed the plastic band from the inside and it worked much better.
My son absolutely loves this costume! I was very impressed when I saw it too, the quality is wonderful. The patches did come off easily but that's nothing to fix. Thanks for having something like this available! My son had written a letter to Santa at school and at the last minute told him he wanted a police costume, you guys saved me!! Thank you so much.

This was a gift for a friend's son who is very interested in police officers. I was impressed by the details of the costume and the quality. I was also glad to see that the custume doesn't come with a gun, which I think is a safety issue.
Got this for our 6yo daughter and she loved it. The only minor quabble I had with the costume is the belt which isn't the easiest to secure, it would have been better with velcro or even a button, it came loose during Trick or Treating and I had to tie it in a knot since it was dark and hard to get cinched.
fun and detailed costume. my son loved it, and everywhere we halloweened at, the reaction was fantastic. purchased based on other reviews, as it looked like a quality item that my son would be able to use in play year-round. exceeded expectations. patches may need to be more securely ironed-on--as per the manufacturer's instructions.
I was a bit nervous about ordering this without seeing the material, etc. However, when it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. It was made from the same material a REAL officer's uniform is made from & looked very authentic. The patches are all real & every detail was represented. A very good quality costume!
