Wind At Your Back Anorak
This jacket is perfect. Not too thin and not too thick. Right now the weather is in the 50s with biting wind. I can throw this jacket over a long-sleeve shirt and my daughter is content. She runs hot and doesn't like thick jackets. It builds up just enough heat inside. Looks great too. She gets compliments on her style :)

Wish for women's sizes
Several years ago, I bought two of these jackets in women's sizes. Subsequently I lost 40 lbs. and could no longer wear them. They were of much sturdier material then and are my favorite jackets of all time. Then HA stopped making them in women's sizes. Every yr. I anxiously awaited the spring catalog to see if they had brought them back. No such luck, nso this yr., I decided to try a child's size, and it worked. It is a little snugger than I'd like it, and I'd gladly pay for a woman' s size, but what can I do?! BTW, the same goes for the survivor jacket, which no longer comes in women's sizes.

excellent and well made
would have liked to see 2 more inches on the sleeve length for longevity. Very nice product!!
right combination of windbreaker and cozy terry lining, with cute navy stripes inside

This is a great coat. My five year old enjoys wearing it because it isn't "crunchy", and he can get the zipper on the first try without help! It has rained for the past two weeks in Minnesota, and he has worn it every day. It dries quickly and looks good. Washed well too; mud came right out!

My 4 year old grandson loves his new orange Anorak. So perfect for the cool damp spring we have had so far. He loves all of his Hannas especially anything orange. This jacket has been a big hit.

Why didn't Hanna use different lining?
After reading a particular review, I was prepared the lining would show through. I'm loving every other detail of the jacket but the wrong choice in lining. My son likes the size of the hood because he can turn his head and see around him, not just inside his hood. The zipper is, as always, easy and quick to use. The pink and the orange are nice and bright for those gray days when you need to spot your child. But I can't understand why the lining would want to be a dark navy. For one, the stripes show through, and for the other, it mutes the potential brightness of the outer shell. Seems like a green or pale blue stripe would have been a better lining.

Great jacket but quality is not as good as it used to be for this same jacket
I have bought several of these jackets over the last 15 years and was surprised how much the quality as gone downhill. It is still a nice jacket, but much lighter weight. The sleeves are not as nice at the cuff and the zipper quality has declined considerably. I would say if the older jackets were a 10 out of 10 then the near ones are a 6.
