We received an Eddie Bauer MicroTherm Down Hooded Jacket to facilitate this post.

The MicroTherm Hoodie is available for both boys and girls in a variety of colors. The 650 fill premium down keeps kids warm and is exceptionally lightweight jacket.  If your kids complain about wearing a coat, this is the prefect jacket because it feels more like a hoodie than a jacket yet keeps them warm.

Best Light Weight Jacket for Active Boys

My son is an outdoors boy. He’s into camping with his cub scout pack, exploring the woods, playing with our dog Roxy, hiking, playing basketball, and hide-in-go seek in the dark! The boys MicroTherm Hoodie is made for adventurous boys and is available in blue, fossil, and limeade!

The outside of the jacket is 100% nylon with a StormRepel DWR finish that keeps kids dry by shedding off moisture. This makes it perfect for jumping in the leaves as well as running to the bus in the wet rain and even the sleet coming our way.

The hood fits nicely and is roomy without being too big to stay warm against the wind. The back shoulder area includes an area with polyester/spandex that stretches so throwing balls, climbing tress, and wrestling with your dog is easy with full range of motion. Eddie Bauer did a fantastic job outfitting this hoodie jacket for active boys!

My son had one last year in an orange color and it is still in excellent condition. He wore it all Fall, parts of Winter, and all Spring. We got a lot of wear out of it and it is still in very good condition. You’ve gotta love the quality of Eddie Bauer.

Best Light Weight Jacket for Active Girls

My daughter is just as active as my son. She loves exploring the woods, bike riding, hiking, swinging, and generally anything fun outside! The Girls’ MicroTherm Hoodie is available in three cool colors: blossom pink, capri blue, and sugar plum purple. eddie bauer girls co


The girl’s hoodie boasts all of the same features as the boy’s hoodie, keeping her warm, dry, and stylish.  She likes how light weight the coat and wears this jacket more often because of it. I use to have to beg her to wear a warm jacket because she said it was too heavy, now she wears this all the time. It is great for all sorts of outdoor fun, including the high school foot ball game!
