Boys & Girls Ski Jackets


Keep the kids warm and happy this winter with one of the quality jackets in our selection. We carry a huge selection of kid’s jackets, many of them designed specifically for skiing, snowboarding and casual wear. With a variety of styles, colors, fits and features, there is sure to be a jacket your kids will love.

 

Boy’s and Girl’s Ski Jackets for All-Day, Any-Condition Riding

 

Just because they’re for kids doesn’t mean that today’s ski jackets for boys and girls are any less advanced and protective than what you’ll see in men’s and women’s ski jackets. When shopping for a youth ski jacket for skiing or snowboarding, an important thing to consider is fabric quality. All of the children’s ski jackets available on Skis.com are good quality, however, some are better than others. Waterproofing and breathability ratings will let you know how well a jacket will stand up to the elements. The higher the waterproofing and breathability ratings on a jacket, the less moisture will be able to seep into the jacket and the more moisture vapor molecules are allowed to escape. An added bonus to choosing a kid’s ski jacket form Skis.com instead of the department store is that the higher quality waterproof and breathable fabrics used to construct these jackets are more durable for increased wear and tear on the slopes. Both boy’s ski jackets and girl’s ski jackets utilize these performance features.

 

Additional features to check for in the specifications of kid’s ski jackets include extra pockets, wrist closure types, wrist gaiters, powder skirts and waterproof zippers. These features are part of what help set jackets for skiing and snowboarding apart from casual jackets. Features like wrist gaiters, powder skirts, and one of the wrist closure types are key to keeping snow out of your kids jacket in the event of a fall. Extra pockets are nice features on kid’s jackets, especially media pockets. This pocket is located on the inside of the jacket and has an opening for the cord for the headphones to run through, letting them listen to their music while on the hill. Waterproof zippers definitely aren’t a necessary feature for most kid’s jackets, however, kids who are skiing in more inclement conditions should consider one with a waterproof zipper.

 

Kid’s Ski Jackets vs. Snowboard Jackets – What’s the Difference?

 

Ski jackets and snowboard jackets are actually nearly identical in terms of technical features, but there are some key stylistic differences. Snowboard jackets tend to have a bit baggier of a fit, a style that most snowboarders, traditionally at least, prefer. These jackets also usually come in brighter colors and bolder patterns, a big reason why they are popular with so many young ones. Ski jackets tend to have a more traditional look in terms of the overall cut and accenting. However, there are brands like Orage who are spanning the gap between the ski and snowboard looks.

 

Jackets That Grow Alongside Them

 

If you're looking to get several seasons out of your child's jacket and pants, keep an eye out for products that feature adjustability systems. Obermeyer and Spyder make systems such as this, and they can add up to 2 extra inches in the sleeve for jackets and in the pant leg and waist for pants. Ski jackets can be expensive, so buying one with an adjustability system will give you peace of mind knowing your child will not grow out of their jacket mid-season.

 

Aside from growing systems, jackets and pants for children also will have adjustments in the cuffs and waist. This will give you the luxury of adjusting a larger jacket or pair of pants down and extending them as necessary.

 

Casual Jackets for Winter Versatility

 

Kid’s casual jackets are great pieces that can be worn to and from the resort or under your child’s ski jacket on very cold days. Kids casual jackets don’t have the same great weather protection and performance features as ski and snowboard jackets, but they do make for a handy option when you need something lighter than a ski jacket. The versatility of casual jackets is their true calling card: Usable both as a layer and on their own, they also offer multi-seasonal wear in the spring and fall.

 

You can find kid’s casual jackets in plenty of styles and constructions; fleece is an especially popular choice for its relaxed look and super-soft wear. Pick out a casual jacket with a hood for extra protection from the rain or snow and even more jacket flexibility!

 

Ski Jacket Shopping on A Budget

 

Skis.com offers kid’s ski jacket sale items and kids’ ski jacket clearance items for those who want to get their kids ski-ready without burning a hole in their wallet. You’ll find a selection of quality boy’s ski jackets and girl’s ski jackets from top brands like Spyder, Obermeyer and The North Face, all for a fraction of their original cost.
