Alpine Ski Jacket - Canvas
The Alpine Jacket - Canvas has a rough and tough exterior built to protect against ski edges, rooftop racks and everyday wear and tear. Think “Carhartt” workwear meets performance ski but fully waterproof. This jacket’s fit allows for layering while its drop tail on the backside makes sitting on the chair a non-factor. Factor in the top of the line quality zippers and the Alpine Jacket - Canvas is tough enough to be your go-to jacket all winter long.
Great jacket. Bomber.
I am a spac kid, 14 years old, and I have been using these jackets for years now and I love them. They are fairly warm but if it is a very cold day you might have to put on a extra layer, but it will keep you dry no matter how rainy it is. My only major compliant with them is the stitching, the velcro holder on the cuffs quickly broke but I have a older jacket so they my have fixed this problem in the newer jackets, but overall I love this jacket and will be wearing it for a long time!
After an entire winter of wearing this jacket I have to say it is the heaviest jacket I have ever worn. That has its upside and downside. On the upside, it is warm and is a great wind block. On the downside- well, it's heavy. Noticeably heavy. It weighs you down. If I wore it walk I would feel like I was wearing a significantly heavy backpack. I really like the slight stretch of the fabric. The pockets are useful though it would be nice if there was a RIFD pocket on the left sleeve. The hood is easily adjustable over a helmet or a cap. The thing that really bugs me is the closures. The cuffs and front flap do not close at a touch. You actually have to press hard on them. On top of that, I have found the bottom front flap closure is impossible to close unless I pinch it between my thumb and a finger. With a glove on - forget it. I think the designers overthought this whole issue. A simple snap and hook and loop patches seem like they would have been sufficient. One thing I will say, I'm not likely the ever wear this thing out. It's like a suit of flexible armor.
But with my new ski jacket that problem is a thing of the past! The insulated ski parka is super warm and a great purchase. I specifically bought it for a recent ski trip and has my highest recommendation. The medium size was perfect for my 5'8"/150 lb size. It's worth the price if you hate getting cold!
