12 Best Men’s Ski Jackets For Hitting The Powder  In Style


A ski jacket is an absolute necessity if you’re planning to throw yourself down some alpine mountains this winter. They offer complete protection when you’re carving down the mountains, keep you warm and prevent snow from leaking in, causing you to become wet and weighed down.

With snowsports becoming ever more popular, there’s no shortage of brands producing some great quality ski jackets, and ones that look good too. Injecting a bit of colour on the snow and mountains not only gives you a unique look but will make it easier for your fellow group members to spot you.

Here’s What We’re Looking For:

  • Waterproofness – Make sure you find a snowboard jacket with excellent waterproof quality. Gore-tex technology 
  • Breathability – Sometimes it can get hot, so a good breathability rating is a must. 
  • Fit – A jacket that’s not too big or too small allows you to move freely while keeping you dry when you have the occasional fall. 
  • Storage – Lastly, a day spent on the mountain means you’ll need supplies and a place to put them. Be sure to choose a jacket that can safely store your phone, Airpods and other supplies.
  • Ski jacket vs Snowboard jacket ski jackets are designed to be more fitted, given the lesser movement involved in skiing compared to snowboarding. On the other hand, snowboard jackets tend to be longer in length at the back with a baggier fit.
  • Gore-tex technology – waterproof, windproof and breathable jackets designed to be durable and long-lasting in harsh conditions 

Sorting through various jacket choices might seem a bit challenging. We’ve compiled a selection of budget-friendly brands that focus on keeping you cosy while fueling your snowy mountain escapades this season… don’t forget your helmet.
