Come winter, you pretty much live in your snowboard jacket. You wear it in the car on the way up to your local spot, snowboarding all day, and then when hiting up your favorite late night happy hour spots when the lifts close.
Your snowboard jacket is basically a part of you, and you spend more time in it than not. It has to reflect your personality and keep you comfortable at the same time.
We rounded up five of our favorite women’s snowboard jackets below. Read on to discover why we think they’re rad and why you will too.
Women’s Airblaster Freedom Parka Snowboard Jacket
Some of us hit the park. Some hit powder. Fact for fact, the Airblaster Freedom Parka will keep you comfortable no matter what your heart desires. Built into its construction is 8K breathability and 10K waterproofing with DWR, so you’ll be dry and comfortable for hours on end. Meanwhile, the tailored fit and vintage parka styling keep you looking sharp. We also can’t help appreciate the Airblaster chain stitch embroidery at the chest pocket and media cord port — little details that make a significant difference.
RIDE Belmont Women’s Snowboard Jacket
We’ve all been there before. Being cold, wet, or shivering on the mountain totally can be a day-ruiner. The RIDE Belmont Jacket prevents all of these uncomfortable happenings so you can simply focus on your snowboarding. It has a 15K waterproof rating so no matter if it’s raining or snowing hard, you’re not going to get drenched. Plus the 10K breathability rating offers air flow, so when you’re working up a sweat you won’t feel stuck inside a steam room. The coziness factor is high on the scale, too. The quilted lining offers the perfect amount of plush. When your other friends might be in less desirable shape for not investing in a solid snow coat, with the RIDE Belmont Jacket, you’ll be warm, dry, smiling, and steezy.
