You've spent most of your waking adult life protecting your son from sidewalk-induced bruises, weather-provoked colds, and closet-dwelling monsters. Now, with DC's Stage 14 Down Jacket for Boys, you can protect him from snowy cold and continue striving for that parent-of-the-year award. Who knows? Maybe you'll even get a "thank you." Who can't be thankful for a half-pound of heat-grabbing down insulation stuffed into waterproof and highly breathable polyester twill? The Stage 14's standard fit is sure to accommodate your grommet's size as well as his on-mountain needs; multiple, item-specific pockets prevent him from (as per usual) losing everything you hand him. When you need to protect him from overheating, rather than the cold, just unzip the mesh-lined underarm vents. A powder skirt and Lycra wrist gaiters create barriers where snow is most likely to enter the jacket.
