The Columbia Boys' Fusion Exact Jacket protects your son from the cold and wind, but not from spectacularly dirty looks when he "forgets" to turn while screaming down a double-black, triple-steep, ice-coated run. Whether your boy tries the fusion approach to being one with the snow, or prefers a more leisurely approach to winter, the Fusion Exact jacket won't break down under the pressure of being your son's guardian against winter.
The ripstop nylon face fabric resists abrasion from jutting twigs and incidental rubbing against brick walls and concrete columns. No fabric would look good after your little Einstein tries being a human sled, down the driveway. The Omni-Shield treatment on the fabric resists stains and rain; it's just too bad you can't coat your son with Omni-Shield. Warm Farehnot insulation helps him stay warmer, so he stays outside longer, and as such, the quiet inside lasts longer. A taffeta lining slides easily over baselayers when getting for a day on the hill or the busstop.
An attached hood protects his head from wind and a slight drizzle, but only if the hood covers his head. Zippered hand pockets give you a safe place to stow his gloves, emergency money, or a house key. Adjustable cuff tabs let you seal out snow and wind, if he still lets you help.
