Green Pepper #150 Another Winter Coat

Well, it was only a matter of time. I had to make my son another winter jacket. I've used this pattern for a raincoat (which is lost at the moment!) and a winter coat last year. This is made of XALT breathable laminate with a layer of Malden Mills Polartec 200 on the inside for warmth. I lined it with Malden Mills sweat shirting fleece. It adds another layer of warmth and it's kind of slick for ease of wear. I added a reflective strip to the arm. I also added a few inches to the cuff. He has to roll them up but the next time he grows we'll just roll them down a bit.

This is a great pattern. The cuffs sort of look dorky but if it keeps his wrists warm, I don't care. He's an outdoor kid.

It is not triple lined in the hood. The inside Polartec 200 stops at the neck. The hood is only the laminate and the sweat shirt lining. He always wears a hat and three layers made it too thick.
