Having the right gear when you are in the mountains is crucial. If you have ever had equipment fail, you know how frustrating it is. Sometimes it's because it's the wrong piece of equipment for that environment. Many of the products we sell are designed for specific environments but can be used in many ways. It's essential to make sure you are buying the right product for its use.
If you intend to ski tour mostly in clear sunny weather around tree-line, your jacket will be in your pack most of the day. It makes no sense to buy the most rugged jacket we sell just because it's the most expensive and therefore seems the best. It's overkill; you want something lightweight and packable but water and windproof.
Lightweight Ski Touring Jacket
Mammut Aenergy Air HS Hooded Jacket
Designed specifically for ski touring, the Aenergy is built to breath. Using Pertex as it's waterproof membrane, it's the most breathable jacket in the Mammut collection. Being focused on ski touring it packs down as small and as light as you'll get from a ski jacket whilst still being full waterproof. We love the extra large font pocket for easy skin storage.
Freeride Ski Jacket
Mammut La Liste Pro HS Hooded Jacket
Athlete inspired freeride jacket. Built to be as rugged as possible to deal with the harsh alpine terrain or if you are just rough on your gear. The La Liste pro is as robust as you are going to get in a ski jacket. Designed with Gore-tex "most rugged" technology, the focus is purely on durability. With athlete inspired features like two skin storage pockets inside the jacket and hoop and loop fasters on the sleeves, it's jam packed full of features to make life easier when free-riding.
Arcteryx Alpha SV Jacket
Arcteryx's flagship jacket is the gold standard in alpine climbing, built to be as abrasion and friction resistant as possible. The whole jacket is designed for climbers - the long arms for reaching high whilst keeping wrist coverage, high pockets to be away from your harness and insanely durable fabric. All this adds up to a jacket you can rely on when rubbing up against rock and being dumped on with snow all day.
Warmest Womens Ski Jacket
Mammut Stoney HS Thermo Jacket
If you find yourself cold on the chairlift or needing more layers than all your friends when out touring, the stoney thermo is for you. The jacket looks and feels like most other hardshell ski jackets except it has insulation between the inner liner and the outer layer. This material is exceptionally light, fast drying and has excellent warmth to weight ratio. Perfect if you want extra warmth when out ski touring or in the resort.
Black Diamond Recon LT Shell
In terms of an all rounder, we are a huge fan of the Recon LT. It's the touring version of the best selling Recon. It's made from the same stretchy fabric as the Recon but with a trimmer fit. This means the jacket doesn't have the classic crunchy feeling but instead a soft stretchy fabric. We also love the new women's colour!
