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.
2. Men’s Haglöfs Couloir V Jacket (£500 from Cotswold Outdoor)
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.
3. Men’s Salomon SLAB X ALP PRO Jacket (£430.00)
