Marmot Freerider Jacket - Boys'

A waterproof and breathable jacket filled with synthetic insulation to keep your boy warm throughout his winter exploits.

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.

Great Jacket!

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

This jacket is so soft and warm. Got it in early spring so haven't tested it in the snow. The coat runs small so order up a size.

Nephew likes skiing better now

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

He's probably not ready for a season pass but at least he's warm and dry! Big fan of Marmot and this piece did not disappoint.

#1 Auntie title on lockdown

    My shredder nephew was stoked on this jacket, paired with some Marmot pants. Bright colors make him easy to find, he stays warm, it's long enough to keep him dry when he sits in the snow, and plenty of pockets for the snacks he packs for his auntie. Sizing seemed to not be an issue, but his mom usually orders slightly larger so he can wear it for more than one season.

    Insane light weight and WARM...

      My 11 year old son is super particular about his gear. He always wants very high quality equipment, which can be difficult to find in kid sizes. Marmot has us both JACKET AND PAINTS covered! Great quality, outdoor gear just like the adults wear, kid sized, and affordable! He plays hard but I don't have to worry about him getting cold or not having gear that can keep up with him. This jacket will take care of him out there. The only minor issue is the fit. Thanks backcountry for keeping us in style...

      What size did your son get?

      Runs VERY small

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: XL

      The quality of this coat was Great! We have owned Marmot coats in the past and always been very happy with the fit, specs, etc. I read past reviews about this coat running small so I ordered a size up -- still too small. Size chart not accurate.

      Runs way small

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Large

      They need to update their sizing chart because the size large was way too small for my skinny, petite son. It fits like a Youth Medium.

      Happy kid, great day

      I was psyched to get this Marmot Jacket from my friends at Backcountry.com. It fits my son well, and has a good feature set at a good price. He loves it! A happy kid makes for a great day on the slopes!
