|Which ladies' ski jacket should you choose? Here's some advice from our customers|
This is a summary of what our customers have told us over the last few years.
Just like the ski pants, surprisingly, the word cheap is used a lot. Again cheap doesn't mean poor quality, because, as you ladies know, a cheap priced ski jacket still needs to be many things.
|For starters it needs to be lightly insulated, so that it can be used on hot and cold days. On really cold days the ski jacket can be worn with a thermal base layer, this makes the ski jacket more versatile. Over insulated jackets are fine sometimes but can be too warm for some days on the slopes.|
Breathability is important, but probably just as important is venting at the sweaty areas i.e. your pits. Waterproofing was essential to a degree, since most pre-spring skiing and boarding involves dry powder, and you're not going to experience a great deal of torrential rain, so the waterproofing doesn't need to be the most expensive one available on the market. If it keeps the snow off then you're happy.
Nice to have extras are detachable hood, ski pass pocket, goggle pocket, snow protector/snow skirt to keep the snow from whizzing up your back (not that you'll ever fall over) and a few extra pockets here and there for sweeties.
Like our ski pants, the ski jackets we choose are ideal for the beginner and the seasoned skier. The beginner who is unsure of whether or not they will fall in love with the sport wants something inexpensive (cheap), just in case they never tumble down a steep slope again. But they are also ideal for the seasoned skiers and boarders - just because you don't fall over any more doesn't mean you have to be ripped off.
|4F Sports Performance - for Ski Jackets and Ski pants|
4F Sports Performance are a new Polish company that have been producing ski jackets and ski pants for around 6 years.
Their garments use the American Malden Mills technical fibres.
AquatechPro Extreme - is a waterproof and windproof technical fabric with PU coating used on the ski jackets and ski pants. The micropores of the fabric have triple function: they block wind and water and transfer sweat and moisture from the inside to the outside of the jacket.
Thermodry - used in their ski pants - moves perspiration away from the body to the fabrics outer surface, where it can evapourate quickly. The construction of the fibres ensures that the lining dries quickly to keep your ski pants comfortable.
Thermopile - is a lightweight, high quality polar fleece lining.
Windpile - is a climate control fabric that offers great protection from wind and cold. The fabric is also very breathable.
