Love this lightweight down coat
I bought this for my 21 lb 15 month old son. I went with a size 2T hoping that he can use it this winter, but also next. Wow, I love it. The sleeves are a tad long, as to be expected since I went up a size. It is adorable and we get lots of compliments. The green color is nice, not as tacky as some other shades. The thing I like best is that it squishes down and he can wear it in his car seat without intruding on safety. He has bigger, puffier down coats that are too bulky in the car seat. Also, he can probably use this in the spring/fall as well. I don't think it is intended for long periods out in the snow. This is more of a day to day winter coat. Love it so much I went and bought my 3 year old the same coat in blue in size 4T. Worth the money for sure!!
I purchased a Patagonia baby down sweater jacket for one of my nephews as a gift. Very cut, just like mom and dads but mini sized. I purchased a 3 month size but it is too big and probably won't fit until 6 months old. Would highly recommend, it is very nicely made. Needless to say mom and dad can't wait to have there little dude wearing this jacket!
Warm, durable jacket for cold, snowy winters
I've purchased 7 of these (for 3 sons) and they are great: excellent as layering pieces, hold up well over the years despite daily wear and hard play, so easy to zip a 3-year-old can do it, solid construction - no trail of feathers indicating down leakage, and machine washable. This morning, it was 7 degrees outside, and we bundled up with the Patagonia Down Sweater as the outermost layer and ventured into the icy cold. It wasn't tropical, but it was warm enough. The zippered pockets are a nice feature. The new Railroad Blue is very attractive. Now the other two want new blue jackets.
