Not The Same Jacket | Ski Jacket & Snowboard Jacket

A lot of ski beginners including me think that there is no difference between them. May be just another expression I think. Because from the features they are almost the same: Windproof; wateproof,durable and could be used in snowy days.But for those ski pros and snowboard pros these differences become more evident.

Most of skiing jacket are bulit for its breathability; waterproof; windproof; comfortable and other performance. They are lightweight, streamlined and could keep out the snow and cold wind.

Ski jackets are more likely to be fitted. Designers do not put excess material on this type jacket just in order to improve the speed and reduce air resistance while skiing. Most ski jackets are just simply patterned. For the colour they often choose bright and sometimes loud color combinations.

But for the snowboard jackets, for this kind of jacket they're more likely inspired by skateboarders, surfers and then designed this kind of jacket. That is why you can find more edgy, artistic patterns and designs in this kind of snowboard jacket. Similarly, the snowboarding jackets are much baggier and longer than the ski jacket. More urban look than the streamlined, fitting skiing jackets.

Sometimes these two different snow jackets are interchangeable no matter for mens ski jackets or for womens ski jackets. Because they often do the same thing and have same features. Like: They are all have waterproof fabrics; adjustable cuffs and high collars and the snow skirts to keep snow and ice from getting into your jacket. Both of these two jacket are just keeping you warm, dry in the extreme cold of the mountain.

Those are the differences between ski jacket & snowboard jacket. And for the womens downhill skiing pant, in fact, the ski pant do not have too many differences. So in here we will not make a comparison. But you will find it in another passage!
