Move over beach breaks and summer holidays, ski season is upon us. The hallowed 4-months of the year where we all actively seek out blistering conditions, in remote regions, throwing ourselves down mountains in the warped idea of a fun. The perfect holiday in our opinion.
Consider the men’s ski jacket if you will. An essential part of your alpine armour. It needs to work hard, just as you will, in some of the harshest conditions on earth. It needs to be breathable, waterproof, insulated or a combination of all three. Functionality will also make a huge difference. Does it have pass pocket, multimedia port, snow skirt, inner cuffs, helmet hood? All things to consider. You can’t spell functional without fun remember.
You have three choices. An insulated men’s ski jacket. for people who run cold or are going somewhere Baltic e.g. Canada or Japan. A softshell men’s ski jacket, for fair-weather skiers. Or a traditional hardshell men’s ski jacket which sits somewhere in the middle of the three. The one you choose will depend on several factors: the time of year, the destination and the type of activity. We only have one word of warning. It’s better to be warm and clammy than cold and uncomfortable.
There’s something for every budget on our digital shelf. First time on the slopes? A men’s Dare 2b ski jacket offers value for money and retro style. Think you’ve turned a corner? A men’s The North Face ski jacket will give you something to shoot for. Whether you're bombing down black runs or french frying down greens get the men’s jacket right and everything else falls into place. Poor choice of words maybe.
