Women’s Top Ski Jackets for 2016

November 20th, 2015

A new ski jacket must meet some high demands. It’s outer shell must keep you dry and the inner workings must keep you warm.  But skiing is a strenuous sport and working up a sweat in frigid conditions can be dangerous, so these jackets simultaneously offer high quality ventilation.  It should be easy to zip in and out of and protect you from all the elements winter may throw at you. But, above all, for the modern day skier it needs to look good…unless you are trying to impress the guy in the starter jacket.

We’ve compiled a selection of the 2015-2016 winter season’s best women’s ski jackets that we think fit the bill. Feel free to add your own reviews of these products in the comments section below and let us know if you have any questions.

 

North Face Thermoball Snow Triclimate Parka ($$$)

A three layer jacket system provides warmth and versatility in a longer cut to cover your assets on cold chairlifts

North Face Thermoball Snow Triclimate Parka

SkiGenie Recommendation: North Face has created a truly all-in-one jacket with this 2 layer zip-in system. The exterior shell jacket is long enough to cover your bum for comfort on icy chairlifts, its completely waterproof, stretchy for ease of motion, has a removable hood, tons of pockets for extra gear and includes an interior puffy down jacket that can be worn separately or together as a system for the ultimate in insulation on cold winter days.

Description: No matter what the snow report calls for, bring this perfectly paired zip-in system to the hill for reliable weather protection and unmatched versatility. The waterproof parka has alpine-specific features and is crafted with a longer 29-inch length for additional coverage.

What Skiers Say:

  • It’s a good coat. Great zippers, great quality, and nice length. I’m 5’10” and 150lbs and i have a large. I thought the sleeves could be longer, but I’m used to that feeling. Also, it is a little roomy in the chest area so it’s not very form fitting, but I doubt I could go down a size because then it would be too short or too tight. The inside feels very nice though, almost like wearing a cloud.
  • I wear this jacket to teach Ice Skating. If I’m not moving around this jacket keeps me warm and I can remove layers if needed. I like that the sleeves are long so when I stretch my arms, my gloves stay tucked in. It is slightly fitted, and not bulky

Kuhl Spyfire Hoody ($$)

A light down filled layering piece or stand alone jacket with intelligent "body mapping" insulation.

Kuhl Spyfire Hoody

SkiGenie Recommendation: The all-new Spyfire line of women’s ski jackets from Kuhl has created a new benchmark for down outerwear technology. The 800 fill “certified non force fed / not “live plucked” goose down is body mapped to keep you warm where you need it most and reduces bulk for layering. The soft shell reinforced fabric on the shoulders allows you to shoulder skis with sharp edges that would shred any ordinary down sweater. Plenty of pockets, lighter weight material in the underarms, large, 5-panel hood and water-resistant, wind-proof coating round out this jacket’s design for one of the best layering pieces of the 2015/2016 winter season. Wear this jacket on its own around town or layered under a shell for any day on the hill.

Descente Kensie Jacket ($$$)

Three layered shell jacket that moves with you in an athletic cut and helmet compatible hood.

Descente Kensie Jacket

SkiGenie Recommendation: The Kensie jacket is an all-around everyday shell with an athletic cut and stretch to move as you move around the mountain. Its designed with simple, clean lines, and lots of great color options with an extra pop of color on the zippers. Tons of pockets including interior media pocket, removable powder skirt, stretchy wrist cuffs, pit zips and 20,000mm rated waterproofing create the perfect jacket no matter the conditions.

Description: The Kensie is the perfect go to jacket, a 3-layer shell designed to optimize performance and breathability. Fully seam sealed and finished with a 20K waterproof finish to keep you dry in all conditions.

What Skier’s Say:

  • The Kensie jacket is functional, warm (has a three shell layering and a great hood which fits over your helmet for cold charilift rides), and ​stylish. I’ve been complimented on mine several times in lift lines! –Keely Kelleher, Descente International Athlete and former US Alpine Ski Team Member.

Bergans Myrkdalen Lady Jacket

A super stylish yet incredibly well made, durable jacket with big pockets, adjustable hood and powder skirt connectable with the matching pants.

Bergans Myrkdalen Lady Jacket

SkiGenie Recommendation: Bergans is a known and trusted Norwegian outerwear and outdoor gear brand offering sleek, clean lines and superior quality. This shell includes all the specifications of a technical shell like stretchy, waterproof, windproof breathability. It has a unique pit zip design that runs diagonally so it can easily be reached while wearing a backpack. The intuitive features of this jacket are clearly designed with the alpine ski tourer or mountaineer in mind. Yet this jacket made our list primarily for its great color options and stylish look. 

Description: Long, technical jacket developed for alpine and freeride. Myrkdalen is made from waterproof, windproof, and breathable 3-layer Dermizax® fabric. The jacket features a ski pass pocket and detachable snowskirt, and connects to several of our ski pants to create a complete suit.

Marmot Mountain Down

Super warm, wind & resistant goose down jacket for very cold days.

Marmot Mountain Down Jacket

SkiGenie Recommendation: If you want to stay warm while skiing in frigid temperatures, this is your go-to mid-winter jacket on the coldest of days. Best for resort skiers in colder climates or high alpine pursuits in severe conditions.

Description: Lightweight and incredibly warm for all-day comfort, the Mountain Down Jacket’s 650+ fill goose down is stuffed in waterproof and breathable ripstop fabric. Enhanced with a zip-off powder skirt and adjustable cuffs to keep snow out and fixed hood with peripheral cord adjustment for unrestricted movement.

What Skiers Say:

  • I purchased this jacket after an extensive search for a wind resistant warm down coat for hiking and cross-country skiing. Local temps were predicted to be -10 to 25 degrees F, and this jacket kept me toasty warm even in significant wind chills. The goggle pocket was convenient and the large side zip pockets were perfect for extra gloves and hats. The wrap around hood and neck cover worked well for the especially cold days, although I would have liked the inner lining near my face to be softer- sometimes the zipper was scratchy. It also comes with a pretty matching stuff sack and removable powder skirt. Because the outer shell fabric is stiff, the coat does not compress significantly for packing. Overall I was SO GLAD to have this heavy down jacket instead of the lighter puffies others were shivering in.
  • It’s amazing! Warm, windproof and light, really good fit.

Helly Hansen Motion Stretch Jacket

An intuitively designed jacket thats waterproof and warm

Helly Hansen Motion Stretch Jacket

SkiGenie Recommendation: This jacket has all the stretch, versatility and extreme waterproofing of a shell with the extra warmth, comfort and intuition of body mapped Primaloft insulation. What we really love about this jacket is that even though its insulated, its designed with a slimming look in mind that’s articulated for movement. It includes all the pockets you need, wrist gaitors, fully taped seams, removable powder skirt and a Recco avalanche reflector. The Motion Stretch is a total package for those bitter mid-winter days that can dump heat with Helly Hansen’s signature ventilation system when the temps start to rise.

Description: Altitude and speed inspire this performance insulated ski jacket. Waterproof breathable Helly Tech® Performance stretch fabric is combined with PrimaLoft® insulation, and our innovative H2Flow system for turbo-charged mechanical venting provide ultimate temperature regulation.

Black Diamond Convergent Down Women’s Hooded Jacket ($$$)

purple ski jacket worn on backcountry expeditions

Black Diamond Convergent Down Hooded Jacket

SkiGenie Recommendation: Best for the technical-minded skier out there bagging summits, no matter the weather. This jacket is made for alpine endeavors on cold winter days.

Description: Windproof, highly water-resistant and insulated, the Convergent Down Hoody stops bitter cold, biting wind and all other forms of weather. This form-fitting jacket offers protection and warmth in fierce winter conditions.  Featuring DWR-treated PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Down Blend, taped-seam shell, and helmet-compatible adjustable hood.

What Skiers Say:

  • This is a sweet jacket, no doubt. The day I received it I was so stoked to check out the waterproofing that I ran a sleeve under the faucet and little beads of water repelled off without saturating the fabric, and I thought to myself “yes, this is what I have been looking for!” I love that there is a primaloft/down blend, but it gets HOT! This is the jacket you throw on for your descent, but don’t expect to exercise in it, or else it’ll make you sweat. This jackets best uses are for belaying in the brisk mornings, hanging out in cold weather, mountain descents, and walking the dogs out on freezing cold days. The fit is a little strange, I bought a medium after reading other reviews and the hips are still tight, and I am not a “hippy” kinda gal, but roomy in the chest area (but I experienced that I don’t need to layer with this jacket). I’m generally a small in outerwear. I also went with black, and am not dissapointed, it was very true to color which was “black as midnight on a moonless night”. Overall it’s a great jacket for a great price!

Columbia Alpine Action Jacket ($$)

Warm, waterproof, and texturized material with a low price make this jacket a great value

Columbia Alpine Action Jacket

SkiGenie Recommendation: Columbia never fails to create great alpine outerwear that’s warm and waterproof with active pursuits in mind. We love this jacket for all of its incredible insulation and brushed texture, but most of all, its price point. This is a great jacket for everyday on the hill that leaves enough in the bank for a proper après ski afternoon or day trip to a mountain you’ve never skied before.

Description: A warm winter coat with a sophisticated air—the waterproof Alpine Action Jacket is crafted with our patented thermal-reflective technology and 100g of synthetic insulation for all-day warmth.

What Skiers Say:

  • Granted this is my first Columbia jacket, I am completely satisfied with my purchase. Extremely high quality. Only complaint would be breathe-ability. Could use air ventilation under arms.
  • If you’re short then this coat would work. I’m tall and thin and its too short in the arms and body.
  • True to size… Super warm! Lots of pockets, and the powder skirt is great.

Patagonia Untracked Jacket ($$$)

An all-in-one weatherproof and warm jacket with plenty of pockets and high quality design from Patagonia

Patagonia Untracked Jacket

SkiGenie Recommendation: Highly technical, low bulk shell for backcountry ascents in deep powder and hard-charging bell-to-bell days in the resort. Best used without layers on warmer days or while working up a sweat (colder days will necessitate extra layers).  A perennial classic.

Description: With a highly articulated women’s specific fit, the Untracked is a warm low-bulk freeride jacket for hiking or powdery descent. Built with a 3-layer GORE-TEX® fabric for durable waterproof/breathable and windproof protection.  Also includes underarm vents, internal pockets and a soft brushed tricot backer for extra warmth.

What Skiers Say:

  • Love this jacket. Kept me warm and dry in Japan pow. The high zip on the collar is the best.
  • Finally, a ski jacket that fits well, isn’t super bulky, in a durable and completely weatherproof Gore-tex package in sweet colors!

Spyder Aimie Down Jacket ($$$)

Stylish and warm synthetic down jacket with real fox fur collar.

Spyder Aimie Down Jacket

SkiGenie Recommendation: The Aimie Down jacket is definitely one of the most stylish pieces on our list for 2015/2016. We believe it’ll be your go-to jacket for those cold clear January days on the slopes and even colder winter evenings out on the town. If you’re looking for a seamless transition from the slopes to the streets, this one’s for you.

Description: Spyder’s Aimie Jacket is made of incredibly soft, yet water-repellent fabric, with a subtle crosshatch texture. Insulated with 700 Fill Power Down, it’s topped off with a real fox fur accent, which is removable so you can wash it with ease.

What Skiers Say:

  • The most comfortable, sexy style going by Spyder. Once you put it on you won’t want to take it off. Nicely fitted and real fur that removes for washing. True to size. I am a Medium to small and i wear a 6 if I want to wear a sweater underneath it.
  • The Aimie Down is my favorite all around women’s ski jackets. It’s stylish and warm to wear at night, very packable for all the travelling I do, and I love the classy fit and feel. The fur collar is a great addition that feels sporty and chic. -Julia Mancuso, Olympian and US Alpine Ski Team member

Top Ski Gloves Reviews Men 2014-2015

November 21st, 2014

Joy is staying warm and comfortable during a long, cold and crystalline day of skiing. And good ski gloves will keep you at that summit of pleasure. Our extremities tend to get the coldest, so having the right pair of gloves or mittens keeps you out on the slopes longer and in all weather.  When choosing the right pair it is important to consider the following choices: (i) gloves for dexterity vs. mittens for warmth, (ii) synthetic materials for cost and waterproofing vs. leather for durability and natural water resistance, (iii) membrane for breathability to prevent sweaty buildup, (iv) lining material for comfort and (v) cuff length to keep the powder and biting wind off your wrists.  The gloves we’ve chosen below will let you focus on the skiing even if your body runs warm and needs a thinner glove, or your digits are no strangers to numbness. Please feel free to leave your own reviews, comments or questions in our comment section.

 

Dakine Titan Ski Gloves ($)

waterproof Gore-Tex – temperature regulating – touch screen liner

dakine men's insulated ski gloves

Dakine Titan

SkiGenie Recommendation: An excellent glove option with all the features that you look for and then some. They are made with waterproof Gore-Tex material and regulate temperature for a comfortable fit on a mild day or much colder. The touch screen compatible liner allows your fingers to keep you wirelessly connected, even at 10,000 ft.

Description: The Titan’s 280g insulation provides plenty of warmth for most days, and they stay dry thanks to guaranteed waterproof, breathable Gore Tex insert. The tacky Rubbertec palm grips to just about everything. And when the storms roll in, the zippered stash pockets make a perfect home for heat packs.

What Skiers Say:

  • I put these ski gloves to the test in Mountain Creek NJ. It was a cold day, between 10-15 degrees, and they worked great. I used the liners with sticky grip that comes with them. Wow, what a great feature. It worked great for using my cell phone/GoPro and kept my hands warm. They were also waterproof which was a big welcome. All in all, I would definitely recommend these gloves.
  • I used these Gloves to ski every week in Utah, they never felt too hot or cold. On warm days where it was 30s, they were cool; on Cold days near 0, they kept my hands toasty.

Noronna Narvik Dri1 Insulated Short Ski Gloves ($)

highly insulated – low bulk – wrist leash – leather palm

green all leather ski gloves with wrist strap

Noronna Narvik Dr1

SkiGenie Recommendation: If your hands tend to get cold easily, these are a great glove option at a reasonable price point. Highly insulated and waterproof, and yet, streamlined, and not bulky. The leather palm allows for a good grip, and an attached wrist cuff keeps them from dropping off the chairlift when you remove them.

Description: Packed with PrimaLoft insulation throughout, the Narvik Dri1 keeps your hands exceptionally warm and comfortable. Its waterproof breathable Dri1 insert shields your hands from slush, melting icicles, and falling flakes.

What Skiers Say:

  • My hands were kept warm and dry at all times. Perspiration was so well-managed that, even after several days of use, the gloves never got funky enough to wash. These ski gloves are also fairly dexterous for their size, and the goatskin palms provide a confident grip.
  • These gloves are quite warm and comfortable. Great grip as well. We’ve had a lot of sub-zero temps this winter with wind chills up to -40F. They haven’t failed me yet.
  • I’ve spent about 10 days in these gloves in Colorado recently and I’m impressed. Most days its been 10-20 degrees and windy, two days it was dumping/powder-day and I have no complaints with the Dri1 Short. I usually carry glove liners and hand warmers but I never had to consider using that backup plan, these are very warm. After a few days of wearing them I’ve gained pretty good dexterity but its not the best. I wear size L in Swany and Mountain Hardwear but ordered XL based on the Norrona sizing chart and they fit great.

Swany X-Cell II Mittens ($$)

durable leather – very warm – waterproof – warmer pocket – wrist leash

super warm male ski mittens

Swany X-Cell II Mitten

SkiGenie Recommendation: Swany’s X-Cell II mitten is an excellent all-around performance mitt that keeps you warm, dry and comfortable on those chilly mid-winter days. It features extremely durable outer layer material with a snug cuff to slide underneath your jacket and an attached wrist cuff so you can take them on and off easily. The zippered hand warmer pocket boosts your warmth and the wrist cinch allows for a snug fit when sending it down the pitch.

Description: The Swany X-Cell II Mittens keep your hands warm and highly dexterous in cold, wet conditions. The leather construction reminiscent of a bomber-jacket-style could be at home in an aerial dog fight.  A Dryfinger Reflection membrane keeps out moisture and helps water vapor escape while  theThermolite insulation holds in warmth. Your hands stay toasty even in freezing temps.

What Skiers Say:

  • I’ve never had cold hands with these and they are now well into their fifth season. The durability is excellent. These may be too warm above 40 degrees, but at that point most any glove or mitt will be. The wrist leash works great. The warmer pocket is key on cold days and they dry out every evening without much fuss.
  • Great for skiing! Soft and pliable. A great fit and very warm.
  • This mitten is hands down better than The North Face Summit series mitten for use when skiing. I was warm the whole time with not much need for hand warmers. My skin was always dry, and there was not any wind penetration from the cuff up my jacket or into the mitten.

Marmot Ultimate Ski Gloves ($$$)

high quality, durable – Gore-Tex insulation – temp regulating – long cuffs – ergonomic design

ultimate ski glove choice for warmth with high wrist to protect from powder and cold

Marmot Ultimate Ski Glove

SkiGenie Recommendation: “Ultimate” is in the name, and rightfully so. Marmot’s Ultimate Glove is one of the best for warmth and durability. It helps regulate your temperature when it’s warmer and keeps you cozy on cold days. The long cuff  cinches over your jacket for both easy handling and keeping snow out. Unlike similar caliber ski gloves, the supple leather design, unique to the Marmot Ultimate, prevents bulkiness and allows you to move around easily.

Description: GORE-TEX® technology provides durable water and windproof performance; patented synthetic down offers warmth without the weight. Brushed tricot DriClime® manages moisture for a cozy interior microclimate. Accordion finger design lends improved dexterity and extends the life of the glove.

 

 

What Skiers Say:

  • These are my favorite, go to glove. Have skied all over the Rockies, from cold Jackson Hole powder mornings, to Utah and through the snow machines, and wet Colorado snow. I love the leather as it allows a more natural use of my hand. I never had a wet hand, and mine stays warm, or at least not frozen without using heat packs or liners.
  • Warmest glove in my arsenal. Warm enough I could justify shelling out the $175 for a new pair whenever these wear out, which doesn’t look to be anytime soon.

Hestra Henrik Windstedt Pro Mittens ($$$)

 high quality, durable leather – super warm – wrist leash – fashionable colors

the best all around men's ski mittens

Henrik Windstedt Pro Mitt

SkiGenie Recommendation: A high quality, fully tech-featured mitten that will keep you warm and dry season after season. The leather exterior and supreme insulation of these mittens offers durable protection from the elements . Cuffs that stretch up and over a sleeve  keep the snow out, and the classic Hestra wrist leash keeps them by your side. These gloves work best on cold mid-winter days but may become a bit bulky as temperatures rise.

Description: This mitt is part of Hestra’s Alpine Pro collection and thus, one of the best models they offer. The cowhide exterior is available in four, two-tone colors with a quilted pattern on the back of the hand.  Thermolite insulation keeps your fingers toasty while internal finger dividers help with the structural integrity of the mitt.

What Skiers Say:

  • Best mitts I’ve owned. They are super warm, the leather is quick to break in, and the quality is super high. Although I thought they were a bit childish at first, I have come to love the wrist loops. Never have to worry about dropping a mitt when on the lift or when snapping a picture if a friend.
  • I am on the third 100+ day season with these mitts. I use them almost every day unless it is spring-like warm. They seem to have a temperature control built in them so they are not too hot when it is warm and warm when it is cold. I admit that when it is really cold, I use the little ‘Hottie” heater packs to keep comfortable. My gloves show no wear even after hard use for all those ski days.

Black Diamond Kajia Glove ($$)

 light – streamlined – leather – padded knuckles – mild weather/spring glove

ski gloves good for movement and protection

Black Diamond Kajia Glove

SkiGenie Recommendation: This streamlined yet fully tech’ed out spring weather glove with a woven nylon and goat leather shell and Gore-Tex liner will keep you warm enough on mild days and dry on stormy days. The low bulk design and Velcro cuff allow for movement if you’re on the skin track or pole planting like a pro down the slopes. The high quality Black Diamond leather design will keep you skiing into the late season year after year.

Description: The Kajia is our premium midweight freeride glove for milder temps, sunny resort days and the occasional blower spring storm. Outfitted with a durable goat leather and woven nylon shell, waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® insert and 80g of synthetic insulation, the Kajia has you prepped for the spectrum of skiing conditions. EVA padding protects against unexpected impacts.

What Skiers Say:

–  I wanted ski gloves warm enough for Vermont weather. They initially felt warm, and I love the blue color and overall look. The fit is snug but not too tight which makes them feel like they should be warmer. In temps in the low 20’s with wind however, my fingers got cold. I’ll probably have to find a thin glove liner for the really cold days.

Flylow Gear Ridge Glove ($)

durable – light – waterproof sealed – work glove

old school style ski gloves for men

Flylow Gear Ridge Glove

SkiGenie Recommendation:

These are a great “work glove” for those of you who earn your living out there on the hill day in and day out. They are tough, durable and warm enough when you’re moving around, and using your hands a lot. They may not be the best option in negative degrees, but are a trusty companion on most other moderate days.

Description: All leather gives added protection from the wind on those super cold days. They are still hand-baked in Colorado with Sno-Seal to keep you dry and warm with HeatRac insulation.

What Skiers Say:

  • I’ve been a patroller for 15 years. Kinco has been my go to and it always requires a can of sno-seal. Its nice that the Flylow comes pre-waxed, but I still put more on as they get abused. A tough, multi-season investment that works on all but the coldest (or warmest) ski days.
  • This is a great glove, but not for everyone. The insulation is moderate and the glove cuff is short (i.e. snow will creep in if you fall in the pow). This is my go-to glove when I am out touring. I hike in a lighter glove and pull these on for the descent. If you plan to resort ski with these on cold days you may have cold fingers.

Under Armour Coldgear Infrared Storm Stealth Glove ($)

warm – waterproof – grippy – touch screen compatible

mobile phone touch screen friendly ski gloves

UA Coldgear Infrared Storm Stealth Glove

SkiGenie Recommendation: An excellent warm, waterproof glove option that features a touch screen compatible finger. The grippy palm will keep your phone secure as you browse or keep your poles in place while skiing. We often need to use our phones while on the chairlift, and this glove allows you to do just that while also keeping you comfortable.

Description: If you can’t keep your hands off your high-tech gadgets because you need to know what the latest forecast is or get that Instagram shot, the Under Armour Coldgear Infrared Storm Stealth Glove if the one for you. This softshell glove is armed with UA Storm for water and wind resistant protection, and its ColdGear fleece lining features Infrared ceramic heat-reflective power for warmth. Extra-long cuffs won’t leave your wrists out in the cold, and a printed palm gives you good grip.

What Skiers Say:

  • What I like most about these gloves is that they never let any moisture in, they keep me perfectly dry as well as letting me use my mobile devices’ touch screens without taking them off.
  • These gloves have been excellent so far. I need something warm for when I ride my bike to work in the morning but I also need to be able to use my phone to track my ride. These gloves do just that, and I like that they are waterproof.
