Ski season is here and I found the perfect ski jacket for layering. I've already skied 22 days this year (including this great trip to Sunday River) and this new ski jacket from The North Face has been keeping me warm and dry and I love the way it stands out on the mountain. Doing my research about skiing is a big part of my winter. Here's what I found.

Perfect Ski Jacket for Layering

The perfect ski jacket

The Women's Clementine Triclimate Jacket is more of a ski system than it is a regular ski jacket. The shell is waterproof and made of DryVent. The inside is a colorful insulated jacket. Each piece can be worn alone or you can combine them together for maximum warmth.

My favorite ski jacket details are the zippered wrist pocket with goggle wipe and the snap-away powder skirt with gripper elastic.

The Dryvent technology definitely works. I've tested this jacket out in the rain at Squaw Valley and in the steep powder at Vail. The waterproof shell keeps me warm and dry. It has a waterproof rating of 25 PSI minimum after 20 launderings.

Momtrends Tip: Don't dry clean these jackets. The waterproof material gets better with washing! When I met with The North Face rep, he told me to use powdered detergent and to put the coat in the dryer.

The Clementine jacket is available in sizes XS through XL and comes in a variety of sizes. Shop on The North Face here.

I'm smitten with the Women's Sally Pants from The North Face. Insulated and waterproof these pants have a great fit and keep me quite warm on the mountain.

These breathable ski pants are light and fit like a dream. They have a synthetic insulation for warmth in "cool-to-cold temperatures."  These also have DryVent technology and I've tested them in 40" of powder and can attest they will keep you dry.
