Great value for money. My son uses this for general wear and school and has found it to be a very warm and comfortable jacket this winter at -2C. It is sufficiently waterproof for wet play times and short walks, haven't tried it for longer than 15-20 mins in the rain. The hood offers very good protection from the weather which is great as he wont wear a hat. We had to exchange the jacket because the zip was sewn too close to the baffle and was repeatedly sticking, but the staff were excellent. The zip which attaches the hood could be longer/improved as it loosens off to being only 2/3 attached when the hood is hanging down during normal wear, however it has never become completely undone. Somewhere where a child could easily store the removed hood to prevent it being lost would be a great addition.
