This jacket is very well made and I think it's heavier and warmer than some other brands. The adult sizes at this time are less expensive than the youth sizes, so we went with the adult sizes for my age group swimmers. There is not much difference in sleeve length between the XXS and XS.<br />XXS 29" Sleeve; 42" chest; 36" hem<br />XS 30" Sleeve; 42" chest; 36.5" hem<br /><br />This is a bit big for my 57.5" tall 9 year old daughter, but she wears it and maybe she'll get at least three years out of it. The XS is a teeny bit big for my 61" tall son, he'll get at least two years out of it.<br /><br />Hope this helps other parents!
