Shopping Tips for Mens Skiing Jackets
Skis.com carries a wide selection of mens jackets to make sure that you are covered from the car to the slopes and even for après ski activities. Initially you can sort by style to view just the ski jackets, snowboard jackets, or casual jackets if you choose.
The difference between a ski and snowboard jacket is mainly in the styling. Both ski and snowboard jackets on Skis.com will have similar tech features like powder skirts, technical waterproof and breathable fabrics, and an assortment of pockets. The major difference between ski and snowboard jackets is in the brand name and styling. Typically ski jackets are a bit more streamlined and feature a more traditional look. On the other hand snowboard jackets tend to have a baggier fit and are available in bolder brighter colors and patterns. There are some brands like Orage who are ski brands, but are borrowing some inspiration from some of the snowboard brands to kick the cool factor up a notch when it comes to mens jackets. Other very traditional ski brands like Obermeyer, Spyder, and The North Face are producing collections of mens jackets with hipper style. Just because a mens jacket is technically designed for skiing or snowboarding, doesn’t mean that you can’t wear the mens jacket for the opposite sport.
Casual mens jackets are designed for après ski activities or perhaps as layering pieces on very cold days. These mens jackets are generally made of fleece or other fabrics that aren’t waterproof and typically don’t have powder skirts. Since these mens jackets lack the defining features of a quality ski or snowboard jacket they are not recommended for skiing or snowboarding in.
The great selection of mens jackets on Skis.com includes products from top quality brands like 686, Armada, Burton, Columbia, Descente, Kjus, Marker, Oakley, Obermeyer, Salomon, Spyder, The North Face, and more. Our ability to carry all of the top brands means that we can bring you the very best quality mens jackets online.
In addition to being able to sort by brand, price, size, and color like you can on any site, Skis.com has sorting options for cut, insulation type, waterproofing and breathability ratings, pit zips, powder skirts, wrist gaiters, and more. The extensive sorting options in the left hand navigation menu give you the opportunity to sort the vast selection of mens jackets to see those with the specific features you find most important.
