Being a snowboarding site, we see our fair share of hoodies crossing the threshold o Onboard HQ. From standard cotton affairs to the new breed of ‘tech’ riding hoods, it takes something special to turn our heads, but as soon as we tried on the ‘Shredduh’ hoodie from Brethren Apparel we knew we’d found something special, so we decided to hit them up for a collab and release our first new piece of merch in years: the Hypno Riding Hood!
First up, they look dope. Properly proportioned for riding, they’re loose and comfortable at your normal tee shirt size and will add a bit of swag without going full ski-tard if you go up one. They go down past your waist to provide midriff protection on the hill, but are a far cry from that below-the-knees steeze of yesteryear.
“This thing will take some abuse. Fits really good too.”
Not only that, but the number of features they pack in make them sound more like jackets than hoods:
- Cordura butt and elbow patches reinforce the bits most likely to wet out and tear
- Stash pockets in both the sleeve and kangaroo pouch
- Armpit vents. Yes, really. Zipped too.
- Double cuffed thumbies
