New Home in Boulder, Colorado

by Marc Dietz May 17, 2018 0 Comments

At this early stage of launching SHRED DOG, we are most excited about (and we assume you are most interested in reading about) our product development progress, testing and refining prototypes, and finalizing plans to bring our first line to you later this fall. But we do have another development that we would like to share… for a couple of key reasons, we have decided to relocate SHRED DOG headquarters from San Francisco to Boulder, Colorado!

The number one reason for this move and why it is important for our customers is that, while we love the San Francisco Bay Area and state of California, overall the short- and long-term cost structure of operating the company out of Colorado SHRED DOG in Coloradowill be lower. This will allow us to invest more in better materials and higher performance products while also keeping our wholesale-to-consumer prices as low as possible for families like yours.

The second reason is that Colorado, in general, and specifically the Boulder area is a hotbed, a mecca, or whatever you want to call it for the outdoor industry. As we look ahead to further expanding our team, we will always strive to hire the best and brightest talent so that a small and efficient team can, again, continue to develop and deliver high performance outdoor gear at a great price for you. And we believe Colorado is the best place to build that team. 

While Squaw Valley and the Lake Tahoe area will always be part of our heritage and we will continue to enjoy many personal and professional outdoor adventures there, we also look forward to new SHRED DOG product inspiration, year-round gear testing, interacting with the #shreddogpack and our customers, and more… in Colorado and around the world.

Size Guides

SHRED DOG size guides are based on body size not garment measurements.

Please note that all SHRED DOG products are designed to layer, therefore each product is cut and sized to accommodate the appropriate layers underneath it. 

Fit

If you want a "true to size" fit today with minimal room to grow, order the size that your kid falls into on the charts below.

If you want a "looser" fit with more room to grow, we recommend ordering 1 size up and using the Adjust-A-Fit System to shorten the sleeves or pant legs. As kids grow, the sleeves and pant legs can extend with them (only on Hardshells, Insulators, and Pants).

How To Measure

To get the best fitting products please take a few minutes to measure your kid following these simple steps.

For all measuring use a flexible tape. If you do not have a flexible measuring tape, you can you a piece of string etc. to take the initial measurement and then hold it up to a construction style measuring tape.

1) Chest - Measure horizontally around the fullest area of the chest (underneath the arms) with the arms down
2) Waist or Hip – use whichever measurement is bigger to select your final size
a) Waist - Measure horizontally around the narrowest part of the waist, (which is about 2 inches above the belly button)
b) Hip - With feet together measure around the fullest point of the hip,  keeping the tape measure horizontal
3) Sleeve Length - With arms in their natural position down by the side, start at point where the spine meets the base of your neck, measure out to the shoulder, then down to the wrist bone
4) Inseam Length - From crotch, along inside of the leg, to the floor.

 

*NOTE - All outerwear pieces (Hardshells, Insulators, and Pants) can have the sleeves and pant legs reduced up to 2" with our Adjust-A-Fit system. As kids grow, the sleeves and pant legs can grow with them.
