Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality, quick delivery. The previous review helped me pick the right size, as my 7 year old is a bit tall and usually a size 8 fits him. I had to buy a size 10 in this case and it should last for a year or two.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small sizing Happy with the quality and warmth, just feel the sizing is very small on these jackets. My 11 year average sized son had to buy a size 14, which won't fit him next winter.

Please advise how to wash this jacket? Is it machine washable and what kind of detergent should we use?

Asked by: Babu
We recommend using a Granger's Down Wash and following the basic steps below: 1. Machine-wash your down jacket on a gentle cycle at 30 degrees °C. 2. Carefully remove your down jacket and lay flat to dry on a clothing rack. 3. Put it in the tumble drier on a low heat. 4. Throw in two to three tennis balls, or Granger’s drying balls. 5. Gently fluff up the down jacket. For more info on do's and don't's check out "How to wash a down jacket" under "Expert Gear Advice" at the bottom of the page.

Which Jacket is warmer Heli Thermore Boy’s Jacket or Epiq Boy’s Down Jacket?

Asked by: Jiya
The Epiq Boys Down Jacket is warmer as the insulation is duck down rather than synthetic and has more filling so is thicker and warmer than the Thermore. However, the synthetic fill of the Thermore performs and holds warmth better when damp.
