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 Akita Insulator is more than just your kids’ favorite everyday jacket, it can also be layered or zipped into the Xena 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.

durable and attractive

In Nov 2018 we bought the Akita for our 7 and 10 year old girls (one in white, the other in blue). They love them. The jackets are mainly used as an insulation layer under a jacket for the cold New England ski slopes. On the warm days, the girls have worn these as an outer layer too with no problems. They are also the staple jacket for our summer hikes in the white mountains, where the wind can be strong and the temps are often in the forties at the summits. This fall, they have gone on a few leaf peeping hikes thought the brush with no issues. One daughter made the mistake of bringing the white one to soccer practice on a muddy field, and I thought it was ruined. But we put it through the wash and it looks brand new again. I think this is a testament to the quality of materials in the jacket. The girls are 8 and 11 now, and these will again be the layering choice from the upcoming ski season until they outgrow them... then I'm thinking another Shred Dog Akita.

Love the Akita Insulator!

We love the Akita Insulator jacket. It is super soft, warm and stylish all on its own, or paired with the Xena Hardshell to give the perfect amount of insulation. My daughter loves the colour and the zip pockets to stash her things. Awesome jacket!

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
