Columbia Ballistic Fleece
My son says this is the best jacket I've ever bought…
Price Paid: $12.50
My son says this is the best jacket I've ever bought him. He loves the warmth and torso length, with plenty of sleeve length also. He likes the nylon panels because "it keeps the backpack's straps from rubbing".
A very durable, quality built kid' fleece. I treated the garment with Atsko's silicon guard and it is highly water resistant. Plenty of pockets for him to use. I installed a drawcord at the hem to seal out the weather. He says it's warm but doesn't make him feel sweaty. Enough said.
4.5 stars because it is overly roomy in the torso, and my son likes things that aren't too baggy. Most kids gear seems to be this way, however.

The Columbia Kids' Ballistic Sweater stands up to multiple seasons of abuse-whether your child wears it hiking, to school, camping, or just exploring around the park. Columbia beefed up the full-zip Ballistic Sweater with Berguntal Light II reinforcements on the shoulders, where abrasion from a pack and branches is the most common. Made from MTR microfleece, this midweight jacket gives your child that extra bit of warmth for total cold weather comfort. If you want a fleece that won't wear out after a season of hard use, this is the one.
