5 of Our Most Luxurious Ski Jackets
Grand 5-star chalets, Michelin-star restaurants and Magnums of Champagne on the mountain; skiing and the luxury lifestyle have always gone hand in hand. Our selection of prestige ski wear brands celebrate and embody this relationship, focussing on comfort, sensation and styling rather than utilitarian protection. So, if you appreciate the finer things in life, and you're looking to indulge your lavish side this winter, we thought we'd highlight some of our most luxurious ski jackets.
Men's Arete Ski Jacket
Descente have long been synonymous with ski wear styled with sophistication, and the Arete jacket stays true to form. Subtle, refined details let the features speak for themselves. The laser-cut, welded, fully-taped construction oozes quality in the minutiae, while the low bulk insulation and 4-way stretch fabric gives a classic race cut without sacrificing a generous freedom of movement.
Women's Teide Fake Fur Ski Jacket
If you're looking for a truly stunning ski jacket that looks as good on the high street as it does on the mountain, look no further than the Teide. Henri Duvillard ensure the wearer is fully protected - a highly-rated waterproof and breathable membrane, and plush Primaloft insulation provide a sumptuous, cosy barrier - but features such as the adjustable belt and faux fur trim give the jacket an arresting touch of class.
Men's Zurs Ski Jacket
Elegant in its understated simplicity, the Zurs jacket's cool, nonchalant exterior hides an array of luxurious features within. Engineered 3D construction and low-bulk insulation lends the wearer a suave, tailored fit, while the laser-cut and bonded details exude quality.
Women's Ulrika Ski Jacket
In their own words, Nils' brand ethos is "to design winter sportswear with uncompromising style and performance, focusing on fit, fashion and functionality", so it absolutely stands to reason that they should be included in this list. Not just a pretty face, the opulent 650 fill goose down in the Ulrika jacket gives generous warmth, while the satin-finish disguises an outer fabric that offers class-leading waterproof and breathable protection.
Monterosa Ski Jacket
With an oversized faux-fur lined hood you can lose yourself in and packed with low-volume Primaloft, Eider's Monterosa Faux Fur ski jacket proves again that form needn't come at the expense of function, setting the standard winter after winter. With a svelte tailored cut and subtle detailing, it really is as at home in the city as it is in resort. But don't let the looks deceive: the stunning pearl outer fabric offers 4 way stretch as well as superb waterproofing and breathability - perfect for taking on Alpine conditions in style.
