A quality, everyday, insulated "puffy" jacket for little kids costs $75 or more from other brands and you still need a ski jacket. We designed our insulators to be the perfect year-round lightweight jacket yet also do double-duty as the insulation layer that zips into our winter hardshells.
The Pups Akita Insulator is more than just your kids’ favorite everyday jacket, it can also be zipped into the Pups Hardshell (sold separately) for snow sports. This layering system keeps kids comfortable in a variety of conditions and reduces the number of jackets you need to buy.
My girls have not had the opportunity to wear the liner and coat yet. The coats appear to be made well . I hope they will be warm enough or will need to purchase base layers .
Our daughter wears this by itself when the weather is chilly and with the shell during winter. It’s so lightweight and just simple.
When my daughter first put this jacket on she exclaimed, "It feels like wearing a cloud!" I, too, was amazed at the featherweight lightness of this insulator that lives up to it's name by keeping my daughter warm. I admit I was a little nervous about the white color, but after using it for a season it is still white and seems to have some kind of stain-resistant magic mixed in with all it's other qualities! Along with the water-proof shell, this insulator jacket keeps her warm without adding bulk. It is so amazingly light and flexible that she's able to fully put her focus into learning new tricks on her board without her clothing being in the way. It's also our first choice for a day-hike layer since it is so light and easy to pack, yet warm for whatever temps we may run into at higher elevations.
