Pups Hardshell | Detailed Features

Maintaining the same high performance fabrics as the Duke and Xena jackets minus a few technical features to keep the cost down. Designed as the outermost piece of the layering system to provide protection from snow, rain, and wind. The Pups Hardshell is extremely versatile as the layers underneath can be adjusted to maintain ideal body temperatures. In warmer conditions the hardshell can be worn directly over baselayers, or add an insulation jacket when temperatures drop. This jacket is specifically designed to integrate with the SHRED DOG insulation jackets in a "3-in-1" configuration if desired.

 

 

dry & comfortable

Problem: Most kids' gear lacks in performance when compared to adult gear. 10k / 10k waterproof/breathable ratings and critically taped seams are the industry norm. This results in kids that are wet and cold, ending the day outdoors for the entire family.

SHRED DOG Solution: Our hardshells are designed with premium performance materials to keep kids warm and dry, even in the worst conditions. The 15k mm / 15k g/m2/24hour waterproof/breathable membrane will prevent moisture from seeping in, while allowing heat vapor (sweat) to escape. The hardshells are also fully seam-taped to ensure they are watertight.

 

"3-in-1" Compatible

Problem: The majority of winter jackets on the market are insulated hardshells, meaning the insulation is sewn into the weatherproof exterior and is not removable. This style of jacket works in certain temperatures but is far less versatile in milder conditions or periods of high exertion meaning it either sits in the car or makes your kids sweat. There are 3-in-1 jackets currently available that have removable insulation, but the insulation layer is really just a liner and is not styled or cut long enough in the torso to be an attractive standalone jacket. 

SHRED DOG Solution: We designed our insulator jackets and hardshell jackets as separate products that can function alone or integrated together in a "3-in-1" configuration. The insulator jackets are styled and cut with a longer torso (including dropback hem) so kids can wear them to school as a standalone jacket in fall, winter, spring, or even on chilly summer evenings. Allowing kids to remove their insulation layer from the hardshell when it is not needed prevents kids from overheating and sweating profusely. This is extremely important because once the inner layers of your kid’s system become saturated with sweat, they will be cold once they stop moving. For example, waiting in a lift line and riding the chairlift back to the top.

 

ADJUST-A-FIT

Problem: Kids grow really fast, high-performance outdoor gear is expensive, and other brands only solve half of the problem.

SHRED DOG Solution: We created a system called Adjust-A-Fit that allows our sleeves and pant legs to be extended andreduced in length. Other brands have you rip a seam to extend the length but then how do you hand it down? The Adjust-A-Fit system allows the sleeves or pant legs to “grow“ with their original owner and then shrink back down once the product is ready to be handed down to the next generation. This extends the life and usefulness of the product. The system can also be used to create a customized fit for kids that have longer or shorter limbs than traditional sizes typically accommodate.

 

QUICK-ATTACH ACCESSORY LOOP

Problem: Kids lose anything that is not attached to them.

SHRED DOG Solution: We created a simple quick attach accessory loop that allows kids (or parents) to attach gloves, neck gaiters, and other small items to the jacket. This means fewer trips back to the parking lot or lodge looking for accessories your kids left behind.

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
