You see ski jackets on sale online and you panic, not knowing which one to choose. There are a few things you need to learn about ski jackets before you start adding them to your cart. Here are a few important ones:
When choosing thermal winter jackets for women, there are three types of fit you can choose from – slim, regular, or relaxed. Slim fit is form fitting and tailored at the shoulders, body, and waist. Regular fit is standard fitting and tailored just below the waist. While a slim fit ski jacket sits close to the body, a regular fit jacket is true to size and provides a flattering fit that is not too tight or constricting. Relaxed fit is a larger fit with little to no tailoring and provides more room in the shoulders and chest for layering.
A ski jacket’s breathability rating tells you how effective it is at transferring moisture from the inside to the outside. It is measured and indicated in grams. The higher the number, the more effective it is to allow moisture to escape and, therefore, the more breathable it is. Entry-level breathable fabrics have breathability ratings between 2,000g to 5000g, while the highest rating is at around 20,000g.
There are two main types of ski jackets for women – insulated women's ski jackets and shell women's ski jackets. When buying a ski jacket, women should decide based on several factors, such as their type of skiing and weather conditions.
Insulated women's ski jackets consist of a waterproof and windproof outer layer and an insulated inner layer that is built directly into the ski jacket to provide extra warmth. You’ll find that many insulated ski wear, also called 3-in-1 jackets, have an additional insulator piece that can be removed. You can wear both pieces alone or together.
Shell jackets have waterproof, breathable outer layers but no internal insulation. This type of ski jacket is ideal for someone who prefers added range of motion because it is not as bulky as an insulated ski jacket. Wear this over a base layer and a mid-layer, and you can stay warm out in the slopes.
This is of the most important factors you need to consider when buying thermal winter jackets for women. Waterproof rating tells you how quickly a jacket can become saturated and begin to allow water to penetrate to the layers. This rating is indicated in millimeters and the higher the number, the more waterproof the ski jacket is. Look for a ski jacket with at least 1,500mm rating.
