A good ski jacket should be warm, breathable, and suitable for layering. The three-layer system includes thermal underwear, a fleece jacket, and a ski jacket. Consider the climate and time of year when choosing layers. A less insulated jacket may be cheaper, but warmth should not be compromised. Look for a breathable and waterproof fabric, and ensure zippers and fasteners are covered. The third layer should be a shell for weather protection. Choose a classic style for longevity.

A good ski jacket is a must for all snow sports. You need to be warm and protected from the wind, rain and snow without feeling weighed down. The most important things to consider when buying one are warmth, breathability, and layering.

You should always keep in mind the classic “three-layer system” when looking for a ski jacket and other ski clothing. In this system, the first layer is your thermal underwear, the second is a fleece jacket, turtleneck, or other shirt, and the third layer is your jacket. The weight of the layers should depend on the climate and the time of year you ski.

Some spring skiers may opt for a ski vest rather than a jacket for the final layer. The three layer system is designed so layers can be removed throughout the day depending on temperature and wind/water conditions as well as the comfort level of the skier. It’s better to start a little too warm and peel off the layers than not have enough warmth and protection from the elements when you need it.

A less insulated ski jacket is often less expensive than a more insulated ski jacket, but it’s not safe to skimp on warmth if you really need it. If you ski in very cold weather, consider a very warm jacket with good insulation. People who are concerned about breathability in a heavily insulated coat should consider a style with underarm zippers. You should also look for a breathable yet waterproof fabric in any type of ski jacket. Choosing one in a modern, yet classic style rather than a very trendy style will keep you looking good for years. You can always wear gloves, sunglasses or a stylish hat.

The third layer is called a shell as it provides a waterproof and weatherproof outer shell that protects you and the other layers from wind and precipitation. When buying a ski jacket, make sure waterproof fabric covers the zippers and other fasteners. While the coat is highly waterproof, it is usually also very wind resistant.
