In the Marmot Boys' Freerider Jacket, your winter warrior can best open bowls and hero making straight shots, or dominate the dusting on the driveway, if you happen to live more than a day's drive away from 'real' snow. Crafted from waterproof, breathable MemBrain fabric, the Freerider will keep your son warm and dry when he's hiking up a ridgeline for his first taste of untouched powder or braving brain chilling winds on his way to a pick up hockey game. Marmot's MemBrain outer shell and lining works in conjunction with sealed seams to exclude all external moisture. Whether it's raining, sleeting, or snowing, rest assured that as long as the Freerider is zipped up, you son will be dry throughout his exploits. While the jacket will withstand an average snowstorm, moisture will get through the fabric if your budding Einstein decides being a human snowman would be awesome not to worry, the Thermal R insulation won't fail him when his judgment does. The snap off hood contains down and protects his noggin and ears from frigid winds. When he's ripping tricks into deep piles of blower pow, the built in powder skirt keeps the snow from creeping up his back. Angel Wing Movement lets him do mid air jumping jacks without the jacket rising with his arms. With the internal mesh goggle pocket, there's a slight chance your son won't lose his goggles on his first time out for the season. Soft brushed lining in the shoulders and collar feel soft against his skin, and the lined handwarmer pockets pamper his paws when he forgets his gloves.
