As your little ripper grows into a mid-size ripper, you want the experience to be as pleasant as possible. After all, you'll be relying on his endorsements to get you through your retirement. The Burton Boys' Uproar Jacket should make the transition from Jr-Shred to King-Shred a warm and painless one. Mapped Thermacore insulation protects him from winter temperatures while keeping weight and bulk to a minimum. The DryRide Durashell membrane and taped critical seams will help fend off wetness from snowball fights and chairlift drips. The Room-To-Grow system allows you to extend the sleeves so you don't have to replace the Uproar after just one season. Finally, he can warm his digits with the fleece-lined, zippered front hand pockets.
