When the weather calls for something more than a sweatshirt, but not quite a bulky coat, bundle your kid up in the Columbia Boys' Fast Trek Hybrid Fleece Hooded Jacket. This hybrid jacket features fleece for comfort and breathability when your boy is hiking or going to soccer practice on a chilly day, along with Omni-Shield coated panels for protection from rain, wind, and snow. In addition, it's packed with lightweight insulation to keep him extra cozy when he's standing at the school bus stop, and the zippered pockets store plenty of snacks to keep him happy while he waits.

- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
My son has loved this jacket since it came out of the box. It's a bit thicker and feels more substantial than a normal fleece, so for him (who regularly wears shorts when it's below freezing) it was as close to a coat as he was willing to go. The fit is great and it's worn nicely after a few washes. Fit was true to size.
Always on hand this fall

Just got this for our kiddo who needed a versatile jacket for playground breaks. We love the softness and mix of materials. His core stays warm with the thicker vest portion, and the lighter weight arms provide maximum movement. He's a normally a 4T right now, so we opted for the XS size. The arms are a little long, so he has a little room to grow.
