Kids' PrimaLoft Packaway Jacket is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Please bring back the hood! I have bought LL Bean packaway jackets for my sons every year since my oldest son was 3 year olds. They are the best Fall & Spring jackets: light weight, easy to move in, warm, wind-resistant, easy to stuff in a backpack and durable enough to pass down. My boys always complained when they finally had to move to their heavier coats for New England winters. My only complaint is that it no longer has a hood! The hood was one of the best parts of this jacket through changing seasons. My children never had to worry about bringing a hat if it got windy or too chilly. Please bring back the hood to make this the perfect kids' jacket again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, well made jacket I bought this for my average sized 3.5 year old and sized up, with the hopes she can wear it next year as well. The coat has been great for CT fall weather. It is very thin, but I own the adult version so I know prima loft is warmer than it appears. Still, for very cold days, we have her wear a ll bean fleece jacket underneath. The jacket is well made, stylish, and washes well. The one thing it is missing is a cord around the bottom hem which would allow you tighten it and thus keep in more heat. The pull cord feature is standard on the ll bean fleece jackets and waist length adult primaloft jackets.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fabric tears easily I bought these jackets for both of my kids (size 14 for 11yo daughter, size 8 for 8yo son). Both my kids love the jackets because they are so lightweight yet warm. Both kids have a different heavier/warmer coat that they refuse to wear, as they prefer to just add a warmer layer under this jacket instead (no matter how cold it is outside). My main complaint is that the jacket fabric is not durable at all, and the jackets are not holding up to outdoor play. My kids spend a lot of time outside at the park (building tree forts, climbing on things, playing with sticks, etc.), and every time they play outside we find another small rip in the fabric. I had to buy gear aid nylon repair tape, and my daughter's jacket now has at least 8-10 tape patches on it from the holes. Next year we will look for a different lightweight jacket with more durable fabric!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light coat - Please bring back the hood This has been our go-to fall/spring jacket in chilly Chicago. Sizing is generous, my average sized daughter, fit size 5-6 from age 5-7 and was able to wear for two seasons. Unfortunately I will have to scour second hand sites to get a coat this year in the next size up because L.L. Bean has gotten rid of the hood and I prefer a coat with a hood. This review is another plea to bring back the hood!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hoodless? We need the hood back! This was a great jacket that we bought next size up a few yeas in a row but we need hoods. Hopefully they will be back next year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bring back the hood!! Good quality, of course. My son doesn't like this coat without the hood, though. We've been buying these coats for years. Most kids like a hood on their jackets and sweatshirts these days. What happened to the hood, LL Bean??? Returning this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!! Bought one for my 5 years old. My 6 year old liked it so I bought him one. They both wear them and they love them. Super thin but super warm. Totally recommend especially for kids who don’t like to wear coats. They will wear these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes up no space in a backpack! So lightweight yet warm. Bought them for my 6 year-old son and 9 year-old daughter. They are perfect for layering in our Southern CA climate where it’s in the 50s when kids go to school in the morning and 90 at pickup . My kids love these jackets!
