Riding out in freezing weather is rough on the face, especially when you start to pick up speed. This is the only hoodie made for skateboarding and made for cold weather. I'm really stoked to have mine to keep me skating during the winter. You can get yours now at Daddies Board Shop. Listen to the full story and inspiration to how this innovative designed was created by the Davenports - While most people abandon outdoor activities for the winter we were determined to keep skating. I used to wear a helmet, ski mask, hood and jacket, The trouble of keeping all this in place during a session or commute inspired me to bring it all together in one design. The first significant improvement I recognized with the new design was that I no longer needed to wear a jacket on my commute. The double cuff design allows the inner cuff to slide into your gloves and keeps cold from entering up your sleeve. The mask keeps the cold air from entering at your neck line so you loose a lot less body heat so you stay warm without an additional layer (like a valuable jacket not desinged for an occasional fall on pavement, ie. snowboard jacket). Elbow and shoulder patches make the hoodie extra durable, even against the road. The drawstring in the mask has an elastic piece in the middle that keeps its centered and comfortable across the bridge of your nose. Once you warm up you can release the draw string on the face mask and put the hood down so it lays lose around your neck allowing the heat to escape. Another nice temperature control feature is the mesh gusset at the underarm, when you raise your arms you allow a contolled amount of cold air in, this really works well while moving. Wether skating, biking or chilling out after a session the PC hoodie can become a staple for keeping you active all winter long. PC hoodies are now produced in East LA's garment district.

Slide gloves fit over very nicely.
Extra protection on the shoulders.
Extra protection on the elbows,
Extra thick and sewn into the hoodie extremely well.
Ninja style adjustable mask that is easy to keep tight or loosen when needed.
Pulling on the strings behind your head makes it easy to get the right fit.
