As my readers know, I'm very much into fashion and own an extensive clothing collection. The one thing that was missing was a motorcycle jacket. While I have quite a few jean jackets and even a leather jacket, there was no motorcycle jacket in my wardrobe. When Up and Away Jackets contacted my mommy about adding them to our Back to School guide, mommy said yes! After all we both think that going back to school in one of these awesome jackets says "Hey I'm cool", and who doesn't want to look cool on their first day back? Up and Away is committed to fulfilling the dreams of children everywhere who desire to be fighter pilots, astronauts, race car drivers, rock stars and star athletes when they grow up. In addition, they take the outerwear category and make it fun, while at the same time promoting Americana to kids. Their jacket comes in 12 sizes, starting at infant size 12 Months and goes up to youth size 12. So even your youngest can look cool.

I was sent the awesome Motorcycle Jacket which is unisex so it looks great on either boy or girl.
Now when I got this jacket and opened it up the first thing I did was try and put it on. Mommy had to help me of course. This jacket is very authentic looking and actually shows some attitude. Even wearing it gave me that little oomph that I think I've been missing this summer. Don't I just look like I'm ready to ride a Harley?
The jacket is made of heavyweight nylon but surprisingly it is very lightweight and doesn't weigh me down. It features three popular embroidered motorcycle themed patches, Route 66, Live to Ride and #1 USA. That only makes it look even more authentic.
The jacket is totally machine washable which mommy loves. She hates anything that she has to dry clean for me and thinks that for someone so small, we should be able to wash all my clothing. This was a definite plus. This means that spilling my drink or my food on my jacket would be no big deal because I can throw it in the wash and it'll be good as new.
Another thing I should mention is that it does have a lot of zippers and snaps. There is two front slash zippered pockets as well as a diagonal one on the chest. There are two forearm zippers on the back of the sleeves for if you need a looser fit. The front zipper can be zipped all the way up or partially zipped.
If you want to look even cooler you can even unzip it and show your bikers attitude. One thing before I forget, there is even a spot to put your name and phone number on the inside of your jacket, so that if it's ever lost it can be returned to you.
The jacket is water repellant so you're safe in a light drizzle and your clothing underneath would stay dry. Up and Away Jackets are sold in children's retail specialty stores and e-commerce sites including jisforjacket.com.
