So you want to face the ice, but not hit the cold? Well, then you need some stuff to keep you warm. Sounds logical, doesn´t it? Logical, but not that easy. Because there is a lot to choose from. What item to start with. That´s another important question. Let´s start with a proper jacket to put on when you walk out to confront your body to the snow. Let´s take a look at a couple of high-quality brands, such as:
The category of Alpine Skiing jacket offers some bright colored jackets, as well as black and white ones (why not blend in with your environment…). Prices range from $280 to $600, prices, of course, depending on which features you´re aiming to have. The more complex the jacket´s features get, the more expensive they become. But, spending some bugs is totally worth the pain in your wallet. Some of the technologies these jackets offer are a relaxed fit, an inner stash pocket, 100% taped, they have lycra cuffs with a thumb loop and removable stretch powder skirt. You can use these warm technologies for the regular winters in your hometown too, and they last for the long run.
The brand Eider offers jackets which are light weight, but waterproof and perfect for mountain sports. One of the best characteristics these jackets have is how lightweight they are which makes them perfect for traveling and speeding down mountain slopes. They have integral lined hoods with elastic sides which can also be pulled off depending on how cold you feel. Something great about this brand is that it shares tips online for skiing and mountain sports.

It’s made of a soft fabric and it’s breathable high-pile backing which puts the finishing touch on this windproof jacket. It is also waterproof and has high protection conditions against the cool. It is amazing how you can combine your big winter jacket with internal small thermal jackets providing a wide range of possibilities when creating your winter outfit. The only thing is that this well-known brand tends to be a bit more expensive than others.
This brand has every jacket in a wide variety of colors going from bright to dark. These jackets are also waterproof guarantee and are really useful for trekking, skiing, snowboarding and of course traveling. The only thing is that they might be a little bulky when you try to fit in in your backpack or when trying to move freely while skiing. On the other hand, it gives your body all the warmth and thermal conditions needed when you are up on the mountain.
Ski snow- sports jackets can be pretty expensive, you must have noticed. While maybe not as expensive as a high quality snowboard or set of skis, they still are up there. This item is a must have, but also an item that can give you some pain in the wallet. Although the costs, try not to be too careful with spending some money on your jacket. When you buy a good quality one, it can take you through years of cold wind, snow, and even water, when waterproof. It´s not that they only last for one winter sports. Try to see it as a long-term investment.
