Choosing a Snowboard Jacket

There are different types of snowboard jackets to choose from, so when choosing the one for you, you want to consider the options.

  • The Type of Jackets

Shell Style Jackets- These are lightweight jackets that generally have a fleece liner that you can take off. Many people just wear the outer shell with an undershirt, as it can get quite warm in the snow. They are windresistant and waterproof. These jackets are lightweight, which allows for more flexibility.

Parka Style Jacket- These are heavy hooded jackets that are lined with fur or an extra layer of fleece. They provide more shock absorption, and are a more bulky jacket.

Once you've figured out what type of snow jacket you want, consider the features that the jacket may have, so that you get exactly what you want. This was the hardest part when shopping for my boyfriend's snowboarding jacket, as he liked the pattern on one but the features on another.

  • Features

Waterproof- You want a jacket that is going to be waterproof so that the snow doesn't seep right into the jacket.If snow is able to get through your jacket, you won't be on the slopes long, as you'll be soaking wet after a while.

Seams- You want a jacket that has tapered seams to prevent snow and water penetration.

Zippers- Jackets that have plenty of zippers offer more protection. Some jackets will zip to the top of the snowboarding pants to reduce penetration of snow and moisture, but all should have zippers over pockets.

Breathability- Jackets that are made from a microfiber material tend to have more breathability and ventilation.

Ventilation- You want a jacket that has plenty of ventilation, especially underarm ventilation. If you've never been on a snowboard, or if it's been a while, you won't realize how warm you'll actually get until you're up there on the slopes, which is why the underarm ventilation pockets are great.

Pockets- Jackets that have pockets for your iPod, cell phone, lift ticket, and other things are ideal. You don't want to carry on too many things, but whatever you do choose to carry, needs to be protected from moisture and from loss.
