You know it’s a qualitative product when it has a Columbia tag on it. This kid’s jacket is not an exception – it features an Omni-Heat thermal Reflective mechanism that retains the heat attracted from the sun. Your kid will be permanently warm and there will be no whining, which is a win-win for you and your kid. Besides the snug lining of the jacket, its outer shell is also well-thought-out and includes a waterproof breathable membrane. No matter how heavy the snow is, it will have no way of getting inside the jacket. As for details, there are plenty of them ranging from the fleeced hood and adjustable cuffs to zippered pockets and reflective particles designed to keep your kid safe when it’s getting dark outside. It is indeed hard to pinpoint a single fault in this jacket’s construction, which is good news for the potential buyers and bad news for Columbia’s limited supply.
