Winter’s nearing, the first decent snow packs will soon be on the mountains, and it’s time to prepare to hit the slopes. What to wear skiing is always a consideration: you need to stay warm and dry without restricting movement. With that in mind, we’ve created a list of ski essentials, including some of the best ski jacket brands available.
Best Ski Jacket Brands
Which are the best ski jacket brands? The answer depends on personal preferences and the weather conditions where you’re skiing, of course, but the following brands offer some of the most durable and versatile jackets for skiing and snowboarding:
- Berne Apparel
These brands are absolute ski essentials for all conditions, from the depths of winter snowboarding to warmer spring skiing. If you’re ordering jackets for a ski club, Triple Crown Products offers free logo embroidery with orders of twelve or more Carhartt jackets.
Best Ski Jacket: Men
The best ski jacket for men depends on the season. Generally, the jacket should be warm, wind and water resistant, and allow for layering clothing while still providing flexibility. Choose from the following:
- The Weatherproof 32 Packable Down Jacket is surprisingly lightweight for a down-filled jacket. Wind resistant and water repelling, this is an ideal jacket for skiing and snowboarding alike.
- The High Country Hooded Jacket by Berne Apparel is a must have for skiing in the peak of winter. The jacket’s 100 percent washed cotton duck and smooth nylon lining will keep you comfortable when the temperature drops.
- The Crowley Jacket from Carhartt offers ease of movement with wind and water resistance.
