"I am looking for a jacket for my son that will keep him warm during a really humid winter. I leave in Germany and although we may not get much snow in the western part it gets so humid that it feels colder than where I grew up in Canada!!! And it rains a lot too, so would that be the jacket to get for him. "

"This jacket is a great option for him! Rarely do we see more than 200g of insulation and this jacket has 220g so it will keep him nice and warm. Some other comparable options are the Obermeyer Downhill Ski Jacket & the Obermeyer Super G Ski Jacket. All of these have over 200g of insulation and are waterproof (for the rain) with hoods. Also make sure to put him in a good mid layer like the Obermeyer Wheelie Fleece Top."

"We live in Northern California where the winters are relatively mild with coldest weather about 50 degrees F. However we will be traveling to Fargo and Minnesota for a week in Novemeber so my son needs a good snow jacket, but my question is would he be able to wear this jacket at home or would it be to warm or bulky for normal activites in California. Is there another jacket that you recommend? I hate to buy a jacket he will only wear for a week."

"This is going to be too hot for him to wear in those mild Cali temps. Are you sure that the temps only go to 50 degrees? It seems a bit high, especially for Northern California! The temps that I am used to for California winters do get well below 50, even in the south. Most of the Obermeyer jackets are heavily insulated for the little tikes. I would look at the Spyder jackets for him as they have a lower insulation level which he can use on the west coast all winter. For your trip to MN, just make sure you get him some good layering pieces to pair with the Spyder jacket and he will be perfectly comfortable! "

"The waterproofing rating (on your site) for all the Obermeyer jackets seem to be just ? 5/10 - while the Spyder jackets are higher (8/10) - does that mean that the little kid is gonna get wet wearing an Obermeyer while he learns to ski? We're only buying a waterproof ski jacket just for about 10 days of skiing a season... really don't want to spend THAT much as he has other jackets that he wears on normal days. Warmth is not a big issue as I can always layer him up, waterproofing is the most important feature. Thanks."

"Spyder does use a more waterproof laminate on their apparel, but you shouldn't worry about your child getting wet in an Obermeyer Jacket. They are plenty waterproof for skiing or playing in the snow. The only time I would recommend paying for more waterproofing is if you spend extended periods of time in very heavy moisture, like rain. I've never heard anyone complain of their kids getting wet in an Obermeyer Jacket; they're some of the best quality available. No need to worry!"
