    • Adjust-a-Fit™ sleeves that lengthen AND shorten
    • Quiet, durable, matte fabric for a luxurious feel
    • See below for more detailed feature list

    For a looser fit with more room to grow we recommend ordering a size up (you can still get a custom fit by using our Adjust-A-Fit System).

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.

Great as a jacket or as a layer

This piece kept my boys warm (under the shell) on the very coldest days, and kept them from overheating as a standalone jacket on warm spring days. This is such a great piece of gear; I wish I hadn't stuffed it into the winter gear bag so that they could have used it all year round!

His favorite shred dog piece

Phineas loves his insulator (he likes to refer to it as his "puffy"). Not just when snowboarding but also when biking and playing and especially to school! Paired with the Duke Hardshell no cold weather can stop him!

My 10 and 12 year olds’ favorite coat

I have two very active boys and we have gone through many different coats over the years trying to find ones that are comfortable enough for them to actually wear. This insulate fits the bill for them both. My 10 year old gets cold easily and wears this both as a layer under his ski jacket and as his preferred coat in cold weather at school. My 12 year old hates wearing coats because he tends to overheat. But he will wear this over a t-shirt in cold weather since it keeps him warm yet not too hot, and isn’t bulky or itchy. This has been a great coat for both - will definitely keep purchasing as they get older!

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. 

In general, we have found that one size larger than the child's age is typically what most families choose to allow more room for growth. But to be sure, it is always best to measure.

Measuring Tips

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.

  1. Chest - Measure horizontally across the fullest area of the chest
  2. Waist - Measure horizontally around the narrowest part of the waist, (which is about 2 inches above the belly button)
  3. Hip - With feet together measure around the fullest point of the hip,  keeping the tape measure horizontal 
  4. Inseam - Without shoes on, measure from front crotch straight down to the floor and reduce 1/2" 
  5. Height - Measure from floor straight up to the top of the head
  6. Sleeve Length - Measure from center back across shoulder point and down the arm to the wrist
