Western Chief 'Batman' Raincoat (Toddler & Little Boy)
best coat I ever bought. Kids love it and parents ask me where I got it all the time.
Inconsistent/Odd Sizing But Great Otherwise
This is a great raincoat but my one complaint is that the sizing is inconsistent. My son is 4 1/2 and I initially purchased the size 4/5. After reading the reviews, I decided to get the size 5/6. However, at first glance as the sales gal grabbed the larger size off the hanger, I thought she had pulled the wrong size because it was so short that it looked like a 2T or 3T. When I got home and put the size 5/6 on my son, I decided that it was definitely shorter in length than the 4/5. I called three different Nordstrom stores to have them compare the two sizes. Of the three stores, two of them had coats in size 5/6 that were approx. an inch and a half shorter than the 4/5 and one store had one that was correctly sized and had a size 5/6 that was longer in length than the 4/5. I brought this attention to the sales gal who said she would communicate this to the buyer.
Hopefully, the sizing issue can be resolved as it is a fantastic jacket otherwise.
My son loves this raincoat that matches his boots, and I l like that it has a very good lining to also keep him warm.
My son LOVES this raincoat. He's proud of it and shows it off to almost everyone. We always get unsolicited compliments on it, too. The plastic is soft, it's lined beautifully - a true, quality item. We were desperate to find a raincoat for my son so he could attend a World Series game with us. (Way to go, Cardinals!! 11 in '11!) Luckily, this coat, in a size larger than he wears, was the only appropriate one left in STL at any of the stores that I shop. It was meant to be. :) It's big on him, but looks fine with the sleeves rolled up. We'll get a lot of use out of it next spring, that's for sure!
