Women's Technical Ski Jackets

Insanely Insulated: The Kjus Helium Jacket

The Kjus Helium Jacket has both down insulation for incredible warmth, and PrimaLoft for low-bulk comfort. Called "the synthetic down," PrimaLoft provides a ton of warmth despite how light and compressible it is. With both of these together there's just nothing warmer.

All-Season Versatility: The North Face Condor Triclimate Jacket

With the 3-in-1 design of The North Face Condor Jacket you can wear the insulated liner when you need extra warmth, and zip it out when you don't. Since you can wear the liner, the shell, or both together, you may not need another jacket all year long. Don't forget the HyVent shell; it provides reliable waterproof protection in wet conditions.
