The Patagonia Boys’ Hi-Loft Down Sweater Hooded Jacket has a lifetime guarantee, and your son is going to test that guarantee. He is a human rocket on skis, a monster on a snowboard, a sledding speed demon, and that’s all before 10:00 a. m. Made from DWR-treated mini-ripstop nylon, this jacket sheds light snow and deflects wind. Lightweight 600-fill goose down insulation keeps your little man warm and keeps this jacket super-light. The sweater part of this jacket’s title indicates that this works as a perfect midlayer under a waterproof shell for cold and stormy days on the mountain, and the jacket part means he can zip this up as a top layer for sunny days in the backyard. Two zippered hand-warmer pockets will hold a baggie with snacks or his mittens. An internal pocket doubles as a stuff sack so you can pack the jacket for travel.
