Your ski jacket is one of the most important pieces of gear you own. A solid ski jacket keeps you protected from cold and wet weather, stays breathable when you work up a sweat, and lets you have a little fun with your ski kit. A quick Google search will reveal there are plenty of options out there for great quality women's ski jackets. But, how to pick just one out of the bunch? To get you started on your very own ski jacket journey, we've selected some of our staff and customers' top picks for the best women's ski jackets for this year.

Need some ski jacket shopping advice?

Insulated vs. Shell Jackets: Insulated jackets feature a built-in layer of insulation in the jacket to give you more warmth. Shell jackets are just an exterior shell of waterproofing to protect you from the elements. Shell jackets are usually more breathable, and allow you to customize your layering system more. Look for insulated jackets if you run cold or usually ski in cold temps. Shop for shells if you work up a sweat, or like to have more control over your layering system. Shells are usually the best bet for backcountry skiing.

Waterproof and Breathability Ratings: Most jackets will come with a rating on how breathable and waterproof they are. The higher the number, the more breathable or waterproof the jacket is. For long days out in wet weather, look for jackets with a waterproof rating of 15k or higher. If you ski in really dry weather (or hand-pick your ski days for good weather), you won't need as high of a waterproof rating. For high-output skiing (or skiing in warm temperatures), look for a breathability rating of 10k or higher. More breathable jackets will help you regulate your temperature better as you're skiing, and feel less sauna-like.
