Our technical specialist Sam Wheeler reviewed 3 gents and 3 ladies ski jackets for this winter:
Our Favourite 6 Ski Jackets this Season
At Snowfinders, we love everything about skiing from the adrenaline buzz of soaring down the slopes, the party atmosphere of après-ski, spending time with our family and friends who are also fans of the sport, as well as learning new tricks, chilling with a bottle of wine in the evening and, of course, wrapping up warm while we have so much fun!
This week, Snowfinders have picked out 3 favourite jackets for both men and women this season.
Our Favourite 3 Men’s Ski Jackets
The Lofoten Gore-Tex Jacket is lightweight, breathable and protective against harsh weather elements. Definitely one of Norrøna´s most popular products, you’ll see new and improved cuffs, as well as glued zippers and a single back adjustment. What’s more, the jacket has a designated pocket to keep your mobile phone safe and dry. Waterproof and well-ventilated, the Lofoten Gore-Tex Pro is the perfect jacket for alpine skiing.
The Men’s Haglöfs Couloir V Jacket features a 3-layer GORE-TEX® soft shell that has extra stretch over the shoulder and back to follow your body movements.
With a two-way front zip and water repellent zippers, you’ll be sure to stay dry in the snow all day. The Men’s Haglöfs Couloir V Jacket allows you to enjoy comfort and warmth, enhancing your day on and off the piste.
Perfect for alpine skiing, this jacket allows you to move fast in alpine environments. Gore Pro fabric offers maximum protection yet offers ease of movement. As a result, the Salomon SLAB X ALP PRO is also a great jacket for more technical terrain.
And the women’s jackets? They’re equally high-performing and fabulous…

This jacket is versatile and can be used for a range of outdoor snow sports. The Target Stretch Jacket is minimalist and technical in design and features GORE-TEX Active Knit. The jacket has 3-layer protection, however is also lightweight and breathable for ultimate comfort whilst skiing.
The complete icon of women’s ski jackets, you’ll want to show this coat off on the slopes. Its longer length is perfect to keep you cosy and adds a little extra style to your ski wardrobe. With luxury 550-fill duck-down and 10,000mm/10,000br 2L Toray Delfy fabric, you won’t want to leave the Earhart Jacket behind in a hurry.
Stylish and functional, the Women’s PeakPerformance Heli Gravity Jacket is bright, eye-catching and playful.
