Any day in the snow is a good day.
Whether he rode a lift up or climbed a cross country track, he loves the feeling of flying downhill. The Reima Boys’ Wheeler Jacket is the functional piece that will keep him comfy for long days on his skis. This jacket is constructed with wind resistant fabric and has a DWR finish to deflect moisture to protect him from the elements. Lightweight synthetic insulation traps in heat even if some water does seep in, and a smooth polyester lining makes it comfortable and is easy to slide over other layers. Adjustments in the cuffs and hem prevent snow from flying in, and the adjustable hood is designed to detach itself to keep him safe if he catches it on something.

- Q & A
This Jacket Does It All
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
When the temps drop below freezing and the mountains are white, our little guy gets all day protection in the Wheeler jacket. The DWR-treated shell with a 12,000mm waterproof rating keeps him dry, and the synthetic insulation keeps the warmth trapped in on the coldest days. One nice feature is the polyester lining which makes getting it on/off over layers a cinch. Adjustable cuffs and interior powder skirt keep the snow out and the fit runs true to size.
Based on the comfort and sweet style, this is his go to jacket for everything from walking the dog to the park on Saturdays to spinning laps at the local ski hill. If he didn't have a season pass, you can bet the lift ticket collection would be prominently displayed on one of the zippers. Bottom line, the Wheeler gives me one less variable to worry about when getting ready for the day. The little guy is happy and comfy, and I am confident he will stay warm and dry in the elements.
