The Columbia Infant Boys' Steens II Mountain Fleece Jacket is simple in design for warmth on walks around the neighborhood or layering for cross-town trips to Grandma's house. Its polyester MTR filament fleece fabric is warmer than average fleeces, and it's more durable for protection during crawling practice sessions. Its modern classic fit means the jacket is semi-fitted so your future champion doesn't look like a starfish when you add layers to his snow-protection outfit.
Although this coat is cute it runs terribly small and it is very slim fitting. I ordered an 18-24 month size for my 30th percentile 12 month old and I am very disappointed with how small it is. I used Columbia's size chart to order and went with this size because it is supposedly bigger than a 2T, but there is no way this will fit him when he's 18 months. Columbia's customer service department was useless to me but advised I should have ordered a 3T for my 12 month old (what?!). If this jacket fit properly it would probably be a great buy - its cheap, cute, seems pretty well made and isn't too bulky for his carseat. Too bad he won't be getting much use out of it. Backcountry is awesome but I won't be ordering anything Columbia again.
