New kit for a tween boy

Getting Ready

My kiddo has outgrown his last year’s stuff. He hates all the blue black and neon stuff I see in the boys sections. He loves some of the fun color ways at dope snow and montec but he’s a tiny guy. 4’11 and 95 lbs. any ideas of where i should look for him?

686 kids or Burton kids? Saw a couple on evo.com that had some fun color blocks and had that dope/montec look.

I don't know what he would think of the colours, but at the Snowbound ski show this weekend I was looking at some of the kids stuff from Shred Dog. The quality and features seemed really nice. They seem to be unisex sizing, with a "grow" feature to shorten sleeves and pants, and the pants are all convertible with a zip off bib, and they have thigh vents too. The bib part also has a nice stretchy panel in the back for mobility. Those would have been perfect for my two since my eldest always wanted bibs, my youngest refused to wear bibs.

My son had a 686 snow suit a few years ago which he loved. He hasn’t loved the colors this year. He had a shred dog set last two years. He loved the jacket but didn’t love th pants as much. They are super long but cut very skinny and he is a skinny dude. In case you’re pondering

If your son loves the colors from Dope and Montec, it might be worth checking out the women's jackets in size XXS, as they might fit him well. A lot of the designs, like the Dope Blizzard W, aren't particularly "feminine" so they could work for him.

If you contact the customer support, they'll be able to give you more info on the sizing, but I'm talking about these jackets: https://www.dopesnow.com/womens-ski-jackets & https://www.montecwear.com/womens-ski-jackets

Oooh, good to know the quality is good. I am considering their women's shell. One of the comments on Shred Dog's site said something like "the sleeves are really long and I have long arms". When I see a review like that the product usually fits me perfectly, lol.

It's a good idea about women's jackets! I'll keep that in mind
