Womens Jackets Shopping Tips


 

Skis.com carries a huge selection of womens ski jackets that are specifically designed to stand up to some of the harshest environments one can encounter while skiing. The major difference between a “casual jacket” and a ski jacket are the features and materials that can be found in the ski jacket. A jacket designed specifically for skiing will be made of a waterproof material, or be coated in one. It may also contain a powder skirt, that when fastened, will help to keep snow from creeping up under the jacket.

 

Womens ski jackets come in all styles and colors. Some brands take the classic approach with solid colors and shapes cut to flatter a woman’s figure. Other brands take queues from snowboard companies, offering looser fitting ski jackets that can come in a wide array of colors and patterns. Bright colors, earth tones and plaids are ever popular in ladies ski jacket fashion.

 

Some brands are known for producing ski jackets while others make snowboard jackets. That doesn’t mean that you can’t wear a Burton jacket skiing, or a Spyder jacket snowboarding. In fact many skiers and snowboarders are blurring the lines between the two sports when it comes to womens ski jackets. Traditionally Spyder has been a ski wear brand and for the most part their womens jackets provide a more traditional ski look. However, Spyder and many of the other ski brands have been creating collections of womens jackets with a snowboard or freestyle inspiration to suit more customers. Burton, Ride and other snowboard companies have branched out into clothing to give ladies a selection of jackets which are legit enough to be worn to shred any park in the country. But, for those women looking for a more traditional looking ski jacket, stick to brands like Obermeyer, Salomon, Descente and KJUS.

 

Utimately, the most important part of choosing a jacket for skiing or snowboarding is the features. The refinements in the left hand navigation menu give you the ability to sort the vast selection of womens ski jackets by some of the most important features such as waterproofing and breathability ratings, pit zip venting, hood style, wrist gaiters and more. Once you have narrowed down the selection a bit by using the refinements you can compare up to four jackets side by side to see which one comes out on top.
