For 79 years, Descente has created ski jackets to cover every skier's needs and the needs of anyone in search of durable, reliable warmth able to withstand the worst weather that Mother Nature can conjure up and toss down from the sky. From the first day of their humble beginnings in Osaka, Japan back in 1935, Descente has been at the forefront of making toasty warm clothing from high performing fabrics ready for every wintertime occasion. Today, the brand refuses to slow down and offers the finest in quality, craftsmanship, attention to detail, and stunning, eye-catching designs that never sacrifice functionality in favor of fashion.
If keeping heat buildup to a minimum is a priority for you, Descente's warmly insulated jackets offer a comfortable breathability to ensure moisture and perspiration don't build up to weigh you down. If its waterproofing you're concerned about, you'll be happy—and dry—thanks to Descente's water resistance designed to keep you dry underneath when snow and rain fall, and keep the snow outside your jacket when the inevitable tumble in the snow occurs. With added features like armpit zippers for extra heat venting, hoods to keep your head as warm as the rest of you, powder skirts to keep snow outside where it belongs, and enough pockets to keep your valuables safe, secure, and dry, Descente offers what you need most to enjoy the outdoors more than ever before.
