Choosing your ski jacket:the essential criteria

Waterproofing, breathability and warmth!

To face the cold, the snow, the wind and any bad weather that may occur during our trip to the snow, the first thing to do is to choose a comfortable and functional ski jacket . Also, the first point to take into account in your purchase is the warmth and permeability of your outfit.

Depending on your sensitivity to cold and the type of skiing practiced, you will have to choose from a wide choice of ski jackets:

  • For the more cautious and those planning a big climb to the top of the mountains, there is no doubt that you will have to turn to a typical ski jacket down jacket . Naturally reinforced with several very warm layers, the down jacket will protect you from the cold.
  • For others who snowboard or ski at altitude , we recommend a ski jacket with wadding . This type of jacket will give you perfect thermal insulation to be comfortable during your days in the mountains!
  • Padded-free ski jackets are really thin and are more suitable for cross-country skiers or ski tourers.

Another important point to know:the breathability ! And yes, if you are an athlete at heart or if you tend to sweat a lot, your ski jacket must be breathable enough to make you feel comfortable during exercise. Look carefully at the label which indicates the weight of the jacket . A weight greater than 10,000 grs/m2/24h means that your outfit is perfectly breathable and does not retain moisture and perspiration.

Finally, regarding the permeability of your jacket , be sure to choose a ski jacket or ski jacket with a Schmerber value greater than 10000 mm. This indication is also found on the label. Taking this criterion into account will prevent you from getting soaked in the event of a fall on the slopes or in the event of rain!
