Mens Casual Jacket Shopping Tips
Although it would be nice, we understand that you can’t be skiing or snowboarding all of the time. For those occasions, Skis.com carries a selection of Mens Casual Jackets. The mens casual style jackets are different than those jackets designed for skiing or snowboarding in that they don’t have all of the great features necessary to keep you protected from the elements; such as waterproof fabrics and powder skirts. This is not to say that our mens casual jackets aren’t great quality pieces, they are.
Skis.com carries mens casual jackets from top quality brands including Arc’Teryx, Columbia, Obermeyer, Parajumpers, Patagonia, Spyder, The North Face and more. Many of the styles of mens casual jackets are fleece jackets or soft shells. These pieces are great for wearing après ski or as layering pieces on extremely cold days.
Fleece jackets are great insulators, when worn under a shell jacket. The high pile fabric helps to trap the body heat. Fleece jackets make great mens casual jackets because of their versatility. They can be worn as mentioned above, with a shell jacket and then when you are done skiing for the day the fleece can easily transition into a great mens casual jacket for après ski activities.
A soft shell jacket is another great staple to have in your ski wear collection. Soft shell jackets typically aren’t insulated and don’t have powder skirts which puts them in the mens casual jackets section. Soft shell jackets are generally waterproof and sometimes even windproof. Some people opt to wear a soft shell skiing or snowboarding on dry days when there is little chance of getting snow up your coat. Much like a fleece, a soft shell can be worn under your ski jacket for additional protection from the elements and then transition into après wear doubling as a mens casual jacket.
You may notice some more fashion forward mens casual jackets. Most of which are made by the brand Parajumpers. Parajumpers is a brand known for their fashionable mens casual jackets. These styles are very Aspen chic, often featuring fur trims or linings. Their signature look includes military inspired hardware from parachutes.
