I bought one of these jackets in size 8/9 for my Grandson at Christmas and he wears it all the time; he LOVES it! He has just broken the zip on it in a 'play-fight' with his big sister and it is actually cheaper to buy a new one for him than to have the zip repaired. I have just bought a size 10/11 so that he can get some wear from it. As some reviewers have said, the sizes are slightly small by British standards. I would therefore tend towards buying a larger size. My grandson is only seven but he is quite big for his age and is very athletic. I have not given the size 10/11 to him yet but my daughter thinks that it will fit fairly well and will also give him plenty of 'growing room'. I cannot recommend this jacket enough, particularly at these bargain prices. I would say that any boy who likes football will be very impressed by this jacket and will want to show it off to his friends. In addition to buying this jacket from FootballShopOnline, I have bought quite a few other Barcelona items over a period of time, including the fleece hoody, the training top and the beanie hat. They are all excellent quality and excellent value.
I haven't tried this on my 7 1/2 yr old yet as I bought as a Xmas present. He is tall for his age and I normally buy him age 8-9 in clothes. I ordered age 10-11 in this jacket having read other customer reviews - glad I did as it looks small fitting but looks like it will fit him well. I'm sure my son will love it as he's Barcelona mad!
Was a good fit however the zip was a bit sticky. Was a present for my nephew, so will see if this improves with use. My opinion is that the stitching is too near the edge of the zip and the material at the edge of the jacket is catching the zip. Was a bit disappointed by this as the material and the finish on the rest of the jacket is good quality.
This jacket looks great! I ordered the size up from what I needed as I read previous reviews it comes up small and it does . It will fit him perfect now! Definitely order a size bigger than what you need
This is a great rain jacket. Bought for my 10 year old son and he just loves it. All his friends want one. Has wore it in the rain and has kept him dry. Brilliant quality. Although he's only 10, I opted for the size up as reccomended and he has loads of room. Will last him a long time.
I brought this as a present at Christmas for my son, he’s ten. I went for a size 12-13 thinking that he would have lots of growing room in it, he is slightly taller for his age but very slim. It fits him perfectly at that size so I would suggest ordering a size up. It’s a lovely jacket he loves it on warmer days.
