I bought this jacket in black years ago, and although it has worn quite well, I decided to buy another. I chose the mint green/gray jacket. When it arrived I thought I got t…

This jacket has been with me on countless backpacking trips and it never lets me down. Super light, and also very waterproof. The price is a little steep, but I would recommen…

My wife is ALWAYS cold and we live in northern N Dakota....so I figured I would by her about the most expensive coat made (within reason).
The hood is pretty huge, designed…

Normally I LOVE Arcteryx and at the sale price, I thought I'd give this jacket a try. It is a little short for my long torso, but the worst part is the sleeves narrowed at th…

I bought this jacket for my backpacking trip to Canada last December. It is lightweight, insulated, compact, wind-resistant, and water-repellent. I used this jacket as an oute…

I was disappointed by the fit of the Patagonia Down Sweater. I'm 5'9, 140lbs and this thing fits me like a barn. I mean zero form factor whatsoever. Drooping in the front, bag…

I am 5'9" 182 lbs and usually wear a large. I might have been able to go with a medium here due to the "regular" cut of this jacket - "regular" at Patagonia sometimes means a…

Pretty good coat and kind of cute, but I wasn't a huge fan of the material. While the outer layer was pretty soft but felt like it would keep water out, the inner layer wasn't…

My daughter wore this for one day and after coming in from playing in the snow the jacket was dripping wet and had to be tumble dried. I put it in the dryer for 82 minutes on…

OK, I've had down jackets in the past, but all had their issues--too short to keep you warm, weird hood that doesn't detach, no pockets, not thick enough for below-zero MN win…

I love my Nuptse 2 jacket so much that I donated one to a young lady in need. She is slightly impaired, but has a paper route in Houghton, MI, where there is a lot of lake ef…

This is my go to jacket for riding all winter long. Thick and burly enough to inspire confidence that it is going to hold up and yet pack-able to be as light as any jacket I w…

I train hunter/jumper horses all year round in Michigan, which means it can get pretty darn cold. Riding is sometimes very active and sometimes very quiet. I bought a size l…

This jacket is fantastic. If you're unsure of Patagonia products, stop it because they are the best. This jacket is great for cold winters and is a great layering piece. My bi…

Long enough to cover your bum. Sleeves big enough to fit over mitts. Covers your face. Roomy enough to layer to keep warm. Only problem would be that if you get it big eno…

Surprisingly warm by itself and waterproof like a duck's...you know. Layer for a versatile winter system. Hood is fully adjustable, visor keeps the rain off your brow, and the…

Had this jacket for a few months now and spent over a month using it in the back country. It kept the rain out during torrential downpours at the end of a Colorado summer, it…

There's so much to tell about ski jackets, I don't know where to begin. First of all, they're generally for skiing, but I guess you can wear your ski jacket doing other stuff, too. I don't even think you have to rename to based on what you're doing. Like, this is my waiting in line at the grocery store jacket, or my talking to grams on the phone jacket.
Anyway, there are few different kinds of ski jackets you should know about. First off, check out down ski jackets. They're insulated with down to keep you toasty warm. Down is feathers, for those not in the know. Goose feathers, usually. Then, there are a bunch of different weights of down. They call it fill-power. As the number goes up, so does the warmth. The benefit for down on the slopes is that it actually helps regulate your body temperature, so it doesn't just keep you warm, it keeps you comfortable.
You can also take the synthetic insulation ski jacket route. The sweet thing about synthetic insulation is that it continues to keep you warm even when it's wet. That's pretty important when you're dealing with wet snow conditions. Synthetic insulation, if you get the good kind, is almost as lightweight as down, so your jacket won't be weighing you down. I like homonyms.
Another popular ski jacket style that I'm supposed to tell you about it the 3-in-1 jacket. They call it that because it's three jackets in one. Usually, an inner insulating jacket, like a fleece or an insulated jacket, and then an outer shell that's waterproof, windproof, or both. You could wear the insulation or the shell alone, or zip them together for a super-jacket. Check out 3-in-1 jackets like The North Face Triclimate Jackets or Marmot Component Jackets.
For more info on how awesome ski jackets are, and stuff about ski jackets for men, women, and kids, plus some name dropping about brands we like, check out this about ski jackets that I made my intern write. That sentence was pretty long.
