Fit & Style

It’s important to choose a jacket fit to suit you and your activity, whether that’s a close performance fit to enhance movement or a looser style to allow for extra layering, we have a range of options to suit all kinds of snow sports.

Slim Fit Ski Jackets
Slim-fitted ski jackets offer a more flattering cut and are more tailored around the shoulders and waist. They help give more of a streamlined fit and feel less bulky when skiing, the tighter style means less room to layer underneath.

Regular Fit Ski Jackets
A regular fit jacket is a more general fit with less shaping at the waist which gives enough room to layer up underneath. This style provides the most comfort and manoeuvrability for the wearer.

Ski Jacket Features to Look Out For

Here are some of the key features to look out for when choosing your ski jacket.



All of our ski jackets come with hoods. Adjustable hoods allow you to customise the fit and wired peaks are useful to help keep their position when skiing. Add a touch of luxe with a faux fur hood to bring some glamour to the slope.

Underarm Ventilation

Underarm Ventilation

Found on our more technical ski jackets, this feature gives you the ability to zip open the underarms for extra ventilation when things heat up.



Additional arm articulation is designed to fit the skiing position, making it more comfortable and ergonomic. It reduces pull and tension in the jacket throughout the day.

Inner Wrist Cuffs

Inner Wrist Cuffs

Keep the snow and powder out with inner wrist cuffs and feel that little bit warmer whilst on your favourite runs.

Snow Skirt

Snow Skirt

A snow skirt is an additional barrier against wet snow creeping into the bottom of your jacket keeping you warm and dry. Removeable snow skirts are a great option to take you from slope to après.

Ski Pass Pocket

Ski Pass Pocket

A ski pass pocket will keep your pass safe and easy to access at all times. The pockets sit on the sleeve, which means you’ll be able to get on and off a lift with a swipe of your arm.


So now you’re more clued up with the features, it’s time to look at the different material technologies we have across our ski wear.

Breathability is important when it comes to staying comfortable on the slopes. Even in cold weather you can become over-heated during physical activity - our breathable jackets allow perspiration to escape, keeping you dry and comfortable. You can check if one of our jackets is breathable by checking out its product features.

Layering is a great technique for staying warm in colder climates. Base layers, midlayers and an outer jacket are all equally important.

It is essential that your ski jacket should be the perfect fit as having a full range of movement is very important. If your new ski jacket is too bulky or tight, this will limit your performance. The correct fit of a ski jacket should keep you snug enough to trap warmth in yet not too tight to restrict any movement. We recommend sticking to your usual size and going from there.

Not only have our ski jackets been designed to last through wear and tear on the slopes but they are also equipped with multiple pockets, a headphone port, a detachable snow skirt and even a mesh stow pocket to hold your ski pass.
