Get insider access into our Columbia Powder Lite Puffer Jacket and learn why this has become one of our staff picks for fall! This is the perfect transition piece for those fall days that aren’t quite cold enough to break out your warmest winter jacket.
Features Worth Talking About: The outside of the Powder Lite Puffer jacket is treated with Columbia patented Omni-Shield advanced water and stain repellent. This means she’ll stay dry and stain free (what parent doesn’t love that) all day long. With 150g of faux down synthetic insulation this Columbia jacket is insulated enough to keep her warm without roasting her on those cooler fall days. The Powder Lite Puffer is also a great layering piece in the winter, through it on under her ski jacket or winter coat for those cold to the core kind of days. Lastly, the quilting on this jacket helps make this technical jacket look more like a fashion piece than those bulky winter coats we were forced to wear as kids!
When you think The North Face for kids, it’s safe to assume you’re getting a high quality product that will last for years. The North Face Denali Jacket continues that tradition. This kid’s North Face fleece is the perfect amount of warmth for cold weather. Made from 300 weight Polartec Fleece, it’s the heaviest and highest quality fleece jacket for kids out there. It’s also coated with a water repellent finish to help fight off those pesky raindrops. The Kids North Face Denali Jacket won’t pile and its timeless nature means your kid will be wearing it for years. The nylon overlay around the torso, shoulders and elbows helps withstand wear and tear where you need it. As if you needed any additional reason to go with a North Face Denali, it’s also made with over 77% recycled content to help divert waste from landfills.
North Face Boys Denali Jacket
I remember getting my first North Face Denali Jacket as a teen and I still wear that same one to this day. I’ve put it through my own tests of wear year after year and its quality holds true. The best part is, no matter what color your kid demands, you can find it in the North Face Denali Jacket.
