My daughter has especially sensitive skin - in the cold if she's not wrapped up warm enough her skin can become dry very quickly. After lots of research I opted for this coat, and it is the only coat she now wears in cold weather - it keeps her warm and dry and even has inner gloves built in which is helpful if the nursery cant locate her gloves ! It also expands as they grow so this is the second winter she has worn it, I anticipate will get one more winter use before having to buy the next size up at which point due to the high quality I will pass this one down to her younger sibling. A coat that works really hard and does an awful lot. Great quality. Would highly recommend.
