I have purchased many things from Overstock and was disappointed that this item, while it looked to be higher quality, really seemed rather stiff and made with cheaper materials than I have come to expect. While it will serve its purpose for keeping its owner warm, it is certainly not the sleek, softer rain/wind resistant materials used in higher end coats but rather a more "plastic-y" (not sure that is a word) feeling overjacket. The fleece liner, however, is very nice and the overall jacket is warm and versatile as advertised.
Just received this for my 5 year old. I love the versatility and I am pleased with the quality. It is a little stiff but I think it will soften up with use. Based on a previous review that it runs a bit small, I purchased a size 7 and I think he'll get 2 years out of it (though it might be slightly big this year he'll still be able to wear it). I think it's going to be perfect for fall and winter in GA.
I bought this jacket as a gift through our parish Christmas star program. I liked the versatility: the young boy could wear it as a three season jacket AND inside if necessary.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? fine
We sent this jacket to our four year old grandson who live 250 miles from us. Although we have not seen the jacket, Zachary and his parents are thrilled with it. They loved the color and the 3-in-1 ways of wearing the jacket. Zachary was so excited when he called to thank us, he could hardly talk. this is unsually, because Zachary always talks! It was a great purchase on our part and thank you for having the excellent service and product.
This is a good looking, affordable coat. That said, it runs a bit small. My son wears a 14-16 shirt, and I thought he might "grow into" a size 18 jacket. However, the size 18 seems to fit him perfectly; but probably won't fit him next year when he's a size 16 or 18. None the less, I would recommend the coat for good looks and price.
