Chill Chaser Sherpa Coat
Really does block the chill.
This is a two-sided fleece material, not lined. The outside is a sherpa-type fleece. The inside looks more like a high tech fabric, it is not scratchy at all, but it's not fuzzy or soothing like the softest of fleece. Also, the fabric is very thick, so the seams are, too.
This would be especially useful in dry, cold climates. The fleece won't absorb much water if caught in the rain, but it won't repel rain like a nylon or Gore-tex type jacket.
Compared with most Hanna clothes, this is less comfy. But, again, for cold with wind, it's an alternative to layering with fleece and a wind breaker or parka.

Material Feels Like A Cheap Stuffed Animal
Purchased this coat for my 2 yr old daughter and it wasn't what we expected. I thought it would be a soft, cuddly coat that would be easy to put on/take off but the material was stiff and not very soft at all. The coat's outer material felt like a cheap stuffed animal to be honest. It has a canvas piece of material sewn across the shoulders that makes the coat stiff and not very comfy. I returned it.

These smooth sherpa coats wrap the little ones in warmth and yet are lightweight so as not to interfere with play. They are snuggle wrapped in them.

Great fleece, but the sleeves are short
I ordered two of these jackets. A 140 for my slim, averaged-height 9 year old and a 150 for my average build 10 year old. The jackets look great and fit everywhere except the sleeve length. Too short. First time having this problem with a Hanna Andersson piece.

Weirdly stiff and uncomfortable
We really wanted to like this jacket.The colors and style were great. My boys needed something warmer than a sweatshirt but not as warm as a parka, and they prefer coats with hoods. However, this jacket was weirdly stiff, like something was sewn inside the fleece. The boys didn't even want to put them on.

Love the chill chasers. They are very warm and not restrictive like some winter coats can be. Great length and overall fit. We use coat as our winter coat. Washes great.

So soft and cute too. My daughter is so adorable in it. Fits well.

I was looking for a fleece in this sherpa style and Hanna was the only place that offered them this year. We live in the southeast so this weight works well for us. My son picked out the green and it's nice shade. Bright but not obnoxious. We bought a size up so he can wear it 2 years and the sleeves stay rolled up. I can't comment on how well it washes or wears but so far I'm happy.
