If you love snowboarding or skiing, you know that a good jacket can make or break the trip to the mountain. We've put our all into our women's ski and snowboard jackets just for you.
Women's Ski and Snowboard Jackets Stand Up To The Elements
Women's ski and snowboard jackets are designed to provide protection and comfort when on the slopes. They are tailored to meet the unique demands of snowsports, which often involve exposure to cold temperatures, snow, wind, and moisture.
With our coats, you can go hard on the alpine heights without worrying about heading to the lodge soaked and cold. Water-resistant and waterproof construction means your underlayers can stay dry all the way to checkout. Zippers help keep out the elements while vents help let out extra heat. Our snowsports gear is made for shredding on the mountainside.
Key Features To Look For
- Insulation: Ski and snowboard jackets typically have insulation to keep you warm in cold conditions. There are two main types of insulation: down and synthetic. Down is lightweight and incredibly warm, while synthetic insulation performs better when wet.
- Waterproof and Breathable: These jackets are constructed from waterproof and breathable materials to keep you dry in snowy or wet conditions while allowing moisture (sweat) to escape from the inside.
- Sealed Seams: To enhance waterproofing, critical seams on the jacket are often sealed to prevent water from seeping through the stitching.
- Snow Skirt/Gaiter: Many ski and snowboard jackets have an integrated snow skirt or gaiter at the waist to keep snow out and warmth in. This is particularly useful for deep powder conditions.
- Vents: Jackets often include underarm or zippered vents to allow for increased airflow when you're active and need to cool down.
- Helmet-Compatible Hood: The hoods on these jackets are designed to fit over a helmet, offering extra protection from the elements.
- Pockets: Snowsports jackets typically have multiple pockets for storing items like lift passes, goggles, gloves, and other essentials.
Styles of Women's Snow Jackets
Not all snow jackets are the same, so it's important to understand the different types and what they are designed for. Shell jackets are minimalist styles that are designed for layering. They typically provide protection from weather, but rely on you layering underneath with baselayers and midlayers like a quality fleece pullover.
Insulated jackets come with built-in insulation and are suitable for colder conditions. They are typically bulkier than shell jackets.
3-in-1 jackets like our Women's Thermoball Snow Triclimate are a cost-effective choice for snowsports because they are essentially 3 jackets in 1 purchase. They typically include an outer shell and an inner jacket that can be worn together or separately.
