Kids Snowboard Jackets



Kid’s biggest concern when it comes to snowboarding is looking cool. Skis.com has a great selection of Kids Snowboard Jackets to make sure that looking cool is a no brainer. Kids snowboard jackets are available for boys and girls from all of the top brands including 686, Bonfire, Ride, Burton and more. Each brand has a variety of styles and colors of kids snowboard jackets so your little shredder can stand out on the slopes.

 

While kids might care solely about looks, parents want to make sure that the kids snowboard jacket they are purchasing is going to be warm and durable. Skis.com stocks kids snowboard jackets from the top brands to ensure that you are getting top quality merchandise regardless of which style you pick. Some of the great features that make Skis.com’s selection of kids snowboard jackets stand out from the rest are the powder skirts, wrist gaiters, removable hoods, and pit zip venting in addition to waterproof and breathable fabrics.

 

What are Powder Skirts and Wrist Gaitors?

 

Powder skirts and wrist gaiters are key features on kids snowboard jackets. A Powder skirt is essentially a fabric skirt inside the kids snowboard jacket with elastic to fit snuggly to the waist. A powder skirt will help keep snow from getting up your kids snowboard jacket or into their snowboard pants if they are in the powder or fall. Wrist gaiters provide the same result in keeping snow out of the sleeves of your kids snowboard jacket. The wrist gaiters on kids snowboard jackets can either have thumb loops or not depending on the brand and style of the kids snowboard jacket.

 

Insulated or Non Insulated?

 

Many of the kids snowboard jackets available on Skis.com are insulated. The two most common styles of insulated jackets are fully insulated jackets, which typically are filled with synthetic or sometimes down insulation, and 3-in-1 jackets. Since down is more expensive, many kids snowboard jackets use synthetic insulation. The 3-in-1 style kids snowboard jackets are extremely versatile since you get two jackets for the price of one. A shell (or non-insulated) jacket and an insulator jacket, typically fleece or an insulated puffy, are designed to zip together to make an insulated kids snowboard jacket. These 3-in-1 style kids snowboard jackets can be worn from fall all the way through the spring as separate pieces or together.

 

Understanding Fabrics

 

The high quality fabrics that the manufacturers use to create the kids snowboard jackets which are available on Skis.com are both waterproof and breathable. Waterproofing helps keep the moisture out so your child can stay warmer and drier on the slopes. Fabric breathability is important feature which often gets overlooked when it comes to kids snowboard jackets. Fabric breathability measures how well moisture vapor is able to escape from the jacket. Between the extra layers that parents insist kids wear snowboarding and the extra energy the expend learning new skills, kids tend to sweat. That sweat needs to be able to escape from the kids snowboard jacket so the child remains dry.

 

In addition, pit zip venting can also help keep you kid cool on the slopes. Pit zip vents are zippered vents under the arms which can be opened to allow your child to cool off without unzipping or taking their kids snowboard jacket off.
