Patagonia SnowDrifter Jacket

Patagonia's SnowDrifter Jacket is a full-featured snowsports jacket that could be stretched for use to hiking or backpacking. I don't remember if this is right BEFORE or right AFTER I crashed into a tree. Don't worry, the jacket is fine!   You probably want a light jacket that will keep you dry and give you the features you need.  When those needs include a powder skirt, some stretchiness, breathability, durability, and a RECCO reflector, reaching for the Patagonia Snowdrifter Jacket is a smart… Full review

Trew Powfunk Jacket

The Trew Powfunk is an excellent snowsports jacket. It has the best waterproofing and windproofing capabilities I've seen in any piece of clothing, it's extremely durable, it looks sick, and it has tons of small features that make it a great buy. That being said, it is quite pricey at $375, but is good enough for multiple years of heavy use. Fit and Comfort The Trew Powfunk fits really well. The size chart on Trew's website was accurate and the only bagginess that comes with the jacket is intentional… Full review

Patagonia PowSlayer Jacket

Patagonia's PowSlayer Jacket is a premium, lightweight yet durable, waterproof snowsports jacket for the backcountry-focused skier and rider. It works equally well for inbounds and side-country trips too. Its Gore-Tex Pro fabric keeps out all types of precipitation—not just powder—reliably and comfortably all day long, though overall sizing is roomy. With its 100-percent recycled face fabric, the PowSlayer brings together environmental credibility and technical waterproof/breathable performance… Full review

Outdoor Research Skyward Jacket

The Skyward Jacket by Outdoor Research is a hardshell jacket that is as flexible and comfortable as a softshell layer and is also waterproof! Designed for winter conditions, the Skyward is an excellent companion wherever the snow may take you. It’s heavier than other hardshell jackets on the market and keeps me warm and toasty even in sub-zero temperatures. However, these features may not be ideal for ultralighters or those who live in mild winter climates. Conditions: I tested the women’s Skyward… Full review

Obermeyer Charger Jacket

A warm waterproof winter ski jacket. Comes with the RECCO rescue system built in. This a storm rated jacket good to temperatures in the teens. The Obermeyer Charger ski jacket offers styling, performance, and safety. Obermeyer touts the Charger ski jacket as the pinnacle of on-mountain performance, and the amount of features packed into this jacket make that statement ring true. The shell is constructed of HydroBlock 100% Polyester Jacquard and, along with seam sealing and YKK Aquaguard coil zippers,… Full review

Eddie Bauer Neoteric Shell Jacket

This is an outstanding hardshell jacket with many pockets and technical features that I have not found in any other jacket in my long search in other jackets. It has lots of pockets, adjustable hood, RECCO detection built in I have used the jacket for skiing, snowboarding, backpacking, hiking and just around town in a variety of conditions. It is my go-to outerwear piece in the cold or rain. Plenty of venting and also breathable if it warms up, very very waterproof. Wow, this is an amazing high… Full review

Patagonia Powder Bowl Jacket

A clean, sturdy jacket that reeks of quality. I bought this jacket at a super discount about a year ago, and looking back I cannot believe how lucky I was to find it; I payed 1/4 of the price for what is arguably the best piece of outdoor clothing I have ever owned! I have been using the jacket (and pants) mostly for skiing, but also for a few weekends out with the snowmobile. For skiing, this jacket is definitely doing the job. A few things that I like about it: Great breathability Very resistant… Full review

Patagonia Primo Jacket

Bombproof, high quality and stylish. The Primo is totally waterproof, highly breathable, lightweight and comfortable and fully featured. The Primo is an awesome piece of kit. For me at 5'11" and 40" chest the fit in medium is good, allowing for layering (I've worn base layer, fleece and gilet without feeling restricted) and the cut allows for completely comfortable movement without anything pulling or binding. The fit suits me fine, just long enough in the sleeves and waist but not so much as I… Full review
