Almost nothing in life is mandatory. Yeah, you love hitting the slopes, feeling the brisk wind hit your face as you hurtle down the curve of the alpine landscape - but let’s be honest, you don’t need to wear anything while you do this. Chances are, though, you’re interested in your personal well-being, overall physical safety, and all that other relatively important stuff. What does that mean? Equipping your naked body with the best jacket for the job might not be such a bad idea.
As a matter of fact, it’s a great idea. We’ve curated a collection of some of the best ski jackets known to man, ensuring those cold weather adventures of yours to be as wildly happy and fun as humanly possible.
Men, women and kids alike will find a wealth of kickass coats built from the latest and greatest technologies, meaning no matter what you’re looking for in a new jacket you’ll be sure to find it from Moosejaw. Unless what you’re looking for involves jackets that include crayon dispensers and glitter zippers. We don’t have those. Not yet.
Men's Ski Jackets:
Is it not completely obvious that modern skiing men need men’s ski jackets? It’s not? That’s a little odd, seeing as how it’s essentially implied in the name, but don’t fret. You’re one click away from being immersed in a bona fide celebration of the male winter experience, top-of-the-body style. These ski jackets are the real deal, designed to keep you warm in spite of the untamed arctic wilderness; they’ll keep you even warmer if you happen to wear one indoors. They’re meant for outdoor wearing, but since when have you followed the rules? Do yourself a favor and fall in line (or don’t) with the best a winter-bound man can get.
Women's Ski Jackets: Believe it or not, these new women’s ski jackets will make you want to sing, and if that’s not your thing, they’ll probably make you want to dance.

Down & Insulated
|Insulated Ski Jackets:
These are ski jackets after all, and chances are you won’t be taking them with you on your island hopping escapade - they’re made for the chilly backwoods, designed to be your partner as your trek along the cold, wintery wonderland. When your plan involves some serious quality time with the great outdoors, proper insulation is key to not getting a nasty case of “Freeze-n-Die”. The insulation technology here is great at keeping things breathable without sacrificing any of that precious warmth in the process, giving you the chance to keep things light so you can still pull off those super sick, super sweet jumps and tricks and board grabs or whatever. Get into down insulation to keep things light and warm, or try out synthetic insulation to rock a lining that’s definitively weather-proof. These are jackets full of prime insulating know-how, allowing you to keep your precious heat where it belongs.
|Waterproof Ski Jackets:
Keeping warm is only half the battle. What good is holding all that heat if you’re a gross, sopping wet mess of a person? It’s not like the ski hills are littered with some sort of weird snow substitute; last we checked that stuff is cold and wet. Your time in the ski lodge is much better spent chatting up some hot little number than drying off your wearables, so a little bit of waterproofing could do you some good. And what do you know, we have a solid collection of waterproof ski jackets, just for you. Perfect for layering, many of these waterproof jackets are shells, built so you can keep it light and you can decide your level of insulation. This gives you the chance to be accommodating to the ever changing weather conditions outside, if you’re into that whole variables thing. Regardless if you’re up for light and loose or heavy and hearty, these waterproof ski coats with match your alpine needs, whatever they may be.
