To be able to show off all your moves on the slopes, it is important to have the right ski & snowboard equipment at the start. You can tell how water-repellent your winter sports jacket is by the designation of the water column (normally 5000 to 20000 mm). It indicates how well the jacket, together with its zips and taped seams, protects you from moisture. The sign "DWR" (Durable Water Repellent) tells you whether the surface is treated and impregnated. Features such as helmet-compatible, removable hoods, high collars and snow catches at the hips and sleeves also protect you from all weather conditions. Breathability also plays a major role in the choice of your ski or snowboard jacket (applies from 8000 g/m²/24h). Thanks to clever ventilation slits and a membrane that transports water vapour from the inside to the outside, your temperature balance is regulated. The material of your snowboard jacket is also labelled with names that you can look out for when buying it: Gore-Tex ("Guaranteed To Keep You Dry") material for example adjusts breathability, waterproofness and windproofness to the needs of your body. Pockets for your ski pass, goggles etc. should also be integrated into your ski jacket. No matter what you're looking for, you're sure to find it in our ski and snowboard jackets from brands such as Mammut, Burton, The Northface, Volcom, Salomon or Zimtstern.
