The ski jacket is your trusty friend on the slopes that keeps the cold out, keeps the moisture out, and keeps you warm. A good ski jacket needs to be waterproof, breathable, and most importantly, warm! With a variety of jackets on today's market, pick the one that suits your needs depending on the weather and conditions when you're out on the slopes.
A large variety of fabrics are used to construct ski jackets, ranging from GORE-TEX®, the innovative waterproof material that is also incredibly breathable with over a billion pores in every square centimeter, to each individual companies' own proprietary fabrics made to serve their customers with the best quality standards. Waterproof ratings go as high as 20,000 mm for the ones who live in the snow, but most jackets come in 10,000 mm. A layer of insulating material keeps the wearer nice and cozy, with each company offering their own fill material, such as down or other synthetic fibers.
Ski jackets also often have other smaller features like high collars, which are extremely welcoming when it's a bit windy out and your lips are getting chapped. Ventilation zips prevent getting too warm, and keep the skier nice and dry. Depending on where you ski and what the temperatures are like on the slopes, skiers can choose from insulated jackets that are extra warm for those who tend to ski in the coldest conditions, to down jackets which are easy to pack up, to shell jackets which can be layered with other clothing and are extra lightweight.
Strap on your skis, adjust your goggles, and put on your warm, comfy ski jacket and you're ready to carve up the slopes!
