You've raised your boy to love the the outdoors, and love might not quite describe his attitude towards adventure and exploration. Rather than squelch his enthusiasm, wrap him up in the Fjallraven Boys' Greenland Jacket, fill his backpack with snacks, and let him race outside for a full day of nature-based exploits. Durable G1000 fabric and reinforcements in high-wear areas mean this jacket will probably be around when your son goes to college. Greenland wax provides a barrier against some wind and light drizzles, as your young explorer doesn't seem to stop when the weather turns ugly. You'll be glad for the hood, even if your son isn't aware of it, and two bellow pockets give him plenty of space for sticks, rocks, and the random frog.
