Finally a Truly Waterproof Jacket!Since my five-year-old daughter was a new-born, we have been going outside every day to walk and play, regardless of the weather. We go out in extreme heat, cold, wind, rain, snow, slush, mud - you name it. We have had a very hard time finding real, practical, functional outdoor outerwear for a young girl. We have purchased very expensive rain and snow coats from other companies, only to find the coats were not truly waterproof, breathable or functional for a playground. At the end of last winter, we accidentally happened upon a sale-priced Columbia waterproof snow jacket at a major department store and fell in love. A few weeks ago, we found the Columbia website and ordered this medium-size girl's rain jacket. Wow! The jacket is truly waterproof, breathable, surprisingly warm (for such thin material) and beautiful. The sleeves are a little long for my very tall daughter; however, they will allow growing room. We are hoping that the sleeves will hold up against playground swings. The other companies' jacket sleeves were no match for swing chains. Thanks for making such a great product.

Great kids jacketMy daughter loves this jacket (and it's hard to find things that fit and she likes)! It kept her warm on our last camping trip when temps got down into high 40s.

Proportions way offI bought an XXS for my 2 (almost) 3 daughter who is in the 90th percentile for height/weight for her age. It fit very well around the torso and length on the body but the arms were a good 3 inches too long. I didn't think she was that off proportionally, so I compared the jacket to the other jackets we have around. On most of those jackets, the sleeve comes pretty much to the bottom of the body of the jacket, maybe a little longer. On this jacket the sleeves were a good 2-3 inches longer (which was very different than the picture on the website implies). By the time she grows into the sleeves I am guessing that the body will no longer fit. So, while I loved the jacket quality, I ultimately decided to return it.
As for sizing, it's tough to say - either the body runs super small or the arms run way too big. I ultimately decided today it runs small cause the torso will be too tight for someone who fits in those sleeves, but you can interpret it any way you want.
