Fantastic jacket at an unbeatable price

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Joe Blow from Nor Cal on Sunday, December 28, 2014
I gave one of these to my 6 year old for Christmas - he loved it so much he wore it all day long even though there was no rain. The jacket was sized right - the youth/small is still a little big on him, so he has room to grow into it. I think this jacket is very well made - I expect him to get 2-3 years out of it if he doesn't grow out of it first. I expect it to still be useable for his little brother who should be able to fit into it in 2 or 3 years, and I imagine it'll continue to serve the little brother for another 2-3 years. It's almost the same jacket as my $100 Marmot PreCip rain shell, but it's not breathable. It's not insulated, which makes it perfect for layering over a sweater if it's cold enough outside and it's ultralight (7 oz.) and takes up very little space packed away in my son's backpack. I'm very pleased with this jacket and as usual, STP's prices and service cannot be beat.
