Good quality, outstanding value

I was worried my son's LL Bean rain jacket was too flimsy for a rainy camping trip we had planned so I ordered this last minute. My son is an average 7 yo: 50 inches tall and 60 pounds. The size small was a bit roomy but not ridiculously big. It was definitely a good size for him with some room to grow. It also allowed him to wear a thick hooded sweatshirt underneath for warmth. My son stayed totally dry during the driving rain on the first day of our trip.

In terms of construction it is definitely superior to his LL bean jacket with its taped seams, flap over the zipper, etc. It's not quite as nice as my Marmot Precip but it cost less than a third of the Marmot I bought on sale. For growing kids I think the White Sierra offers the perfect balance between quality and value.
