Snowboard Jackets

Snowboard jackets are designed with technical materials that keep you warm, dry and protected from the elements. The amount of choices within the category has grown over the years so you can choose based on brand, color, style and accessories. Unlike ski jackets, snowboard jackets are looser and longer. The extra length is to keep you warm when sitting in the snow and strapping your board on. And the looser fit is due to the additional movement needed in snowboarding vs. skiing.

 

Additionally, each snowboard jacket comes with ratings on its breathability and resistance to water, both important measurements to review when comparing snowboard jackets. A breathable jacket will help you cool off while working up a sweat coming down the mountain. If you plan to snowboard in wet or snowy conditions, then you’ll want a high water resistance rating. To extend the lifecycle of your snowboard jacket, put in a little extra effort with care and maintenance to keep it resistant to harsh conditions.  Shop Bob's Sports Chalet for a huge selection of snowboard jackets, including the perennial favorite, Burton snowboard jackets.

Styles of Snowboarding Jackets:

However, like ski jackets, there are different types of snowboard jackets to choose from including hardshell, softshell and insulated. A hardshell or “shell” jacket is weather resistant to provide protection from the wind, snow or rain. This type of snowboard jacket is the most waterproof and breathable option. Keep in mind, though, that a shell jacket has no insulation, so additional layers will be needed on colder days.  A softshell jacket is made up or stretchier and lighter material to provide more breathability, but will not be as resistant to the elements. An insulated jacket is essentially an all-in-one jacket for the coldest of days, as it comes with an outer layer lined with differing levels of insulation. The insulation used can be synthetic such as Primaloft, or natural source such as down.
