My 10 year old son absolutely loves this jacket! I have never heard a single complaint about being cold even on the coldest days. It is also really nice to see the attention to detail that Spyder gave this jacket. The detail and features are on point with their high end adult models. My only complaint would not be with the jacket, but that they don't offer a comparable pant in any color but black. We had to step down to the Guard pant to get the volcano color, and they don't really match. However, we are still very happy with the products overall!
