When we set out to design the ultimate ski jacket that could compete with the world s best in looks and performance, this was the result. We even took a trip out of Yorkshire to visit the Austrian Alps to make sure we'd thought of everything. Firstly we used our highest rated waterproof, breathable fabric and taped all the seams and so you ll always stay dry and comfortable. For warmth without weight it has an advanced thermal filling, and to make sure you don t get too hot, there are ventilation zips under the arms. To stop snow getting in it has an integral snow skirt, which is light and discreet with a grippy gel line around the edge so that it forms a good seal against the top of your trousers.The removable hood is large enough to go over a helmet and has a shaped peak that you can bend to keep off the wind and rain as well as toggles to tighten it around your face.
