Boys Malamute Insulator

  • WARMTH WITHOUT BULK

    The Malamute Insulator Jacket is an extremely versatile piece that can be worn as a stand-alone jacket, layered underneath the hardshell, or zipped-in to the Hardshell to provide additional warmth on cold days. This technical piece is designed to keep active kids warm without causing them to overheat and sweat. The synthetic 3M™ Thinsulate™ insulation is strategically body-mapped with thicker insulation throughout the core (100 grams) and lighter insulation throughout the arms (60 grams). Additionally, synthetic insulation is extremely breathable and low profile for enhanced freedom of movement for active kids. The face fabric of the jacket is treated with a Durable Water Repellency (DWR), but if it should get wet for any reason, the synthetic insulation will continue to retain heat.

    • Body-mapped insulation for active kids

why we made it

A quality, everyday, insulated "puffy" jacket from other brands cost $100 or more and is in addition to buying a winter/ski/snowboard jacket. We designed the Malamute insulator to be that perfect year-round lightweight jacket yet also do double-duty as the insulation layer that zips into our winter hardshells.

 

versatility that saves you money

The Malamute Insulator is more than just your kids’ favorite everyday jacket, it can also be layered or zipped into the Duke Hardshell (sold separately) for snow sports. This layering system keeps kids comfortable in a variety of conditions and allows parents to spend money on adventures instead of gear.

Mid Layer, MORE Warm

This mid-layer coat is so rad for my boys! I've geared up my 10 year-old and 6 year-old in this puffy, as well as Shred Dog hard shell coat. bibs, base layer and neck gator... ALL of it is super sweet. We took the Shred Dog gear out recently on a spring powder day and all the moisture beaded up on by boy's coats, while they stayed warm due to the layers underneath. My 10 year-old put his gear through all the regular punishment a kid that age does, but I also told him to try and get wet through the gear... he rolled around in the snow even took a few harder falls along the way (unplanned), and he was still dry at the end of the day. I am stoked we got this gear and I know it will last as it all gets passed down to our younger boys! Thanks Shred Dog!

One for me, please.

Design, Materials, Wearability, Comfort, Style: 5 stars My 10 year old says, "mom, this is the best jacket ever" as he rides off on his trick scooter. Me, "perfect, let me get one for myself." Great job Shred Dog. Keep dressing the pack, we like it!

Great insulator

My son loves his Shred Dog insulator. He wears it every day in the winter - which is why we were so bummed when he lost it earlier this season. We got another one so our 3-in-1 system would still function and he was so happy to have his insulator jacket back. Thanks!

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 little to no 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, order 1 size up and use 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)
  2. Waist or Hip – use whichever measurement is bigger to select your final size
