Exploration Ski Jacket
EXPLORATION SKI JACKET
I was so excited when I saw this jacket for sale as it had so many features I was looking for in a ski jacket. I wanted a technical jacket that was light weight ,warm but attractive and stylish too.I wanted a jacket that was fitted at the waist but long at the back with a detachable hood. I am a size 16 but quite curvaceous and sadly with another layer underneath it was much too snug on the arms and on the hips although it fitted beautifully on the waist. I was also very concerned that the zip didn't undo from the bottom as well as the top. I am fit and love to ski and wish that Sweaty Betty could make a ski jacket for those of us who are a little larger and who are not blessed with slim hips. Every year I look out for a stylish ladies ski jacket and end up having to buy a baggy borders jacket..it's so sad. I'm skiing for a month next season and am still looking for a jacket that will keep me warm and cosy . I do hope Sweaty Beaty decides to make for the slightly larger skier next year ! I wait in hope.

Really stylish ski jacket
I loved this jacket in the Winter range but thought it a bit pricey. Saw someone wearing it on the slopes in Italy with white ski pants and it looked fab - so really delighted to have got it in the sale and can't wait for the new ski season to take it out...

Funny that there was a dirty tissue in the pocket
I love the jacket but wonder if it was a return (and had been worn) as it was in the sale and had a dirty tissue in the pocket also the inside was a bit dirty with hair and fluff. I am keeping the jacket as I love it but was slightly revolted by the lack of care at checking the product before it was sent out

Great ski jacket
This is a very well thought out jacket, fit for purpose; loved the removable fur trim( & nice quality fur) and zip off hood, loved the snaps on the hood that lay over the collar keeping you nice and snug, love, love love the colour and design, lovely and warm! with good pockets inside and out. Things I didn't like - I didn't wear the belt with mine, just personal preference, the sleeve lining was very grippy and always wanted to turn inside out every time I took the jacket off. My jacket has unfortunately pilled where I wore a rucksack just below the back chest panel, although the fabric was fine in all other areas

Have not had chance to ski in it yet, but this jacket is beautiful. So many lovely details - faux fur hood, belt etc. Fabulous fit - I'm size 8 and bought the XS - there's still room for a few layers underneath but it doesn't look bulky and as the fabric is stretchy it's very versatile and has a lovely fitted silhouette. It feels lovely and warm. I bought Sweaty Betty fitted Salopettes a few years ago - they are in a similar material and they have been fabulous in all skiing conditions. So I'm confident this jacket will be the same. Absolutely love it. As do all my friends!

Technical and stylist ski jacket
Great product although it cost a bomb even in the sale. It kept me warm and dry even in the whitest of whiteouts! Possibly could have done with another pocket perhaps in the inside but otherwise it was great

I love this jacket - the colours are great and its very stylish (I got lots of compliments!) and its also perfect for the job with the various pockets etc. Kept me warm on some days of heavy snow and the hood fits over a helmet!!

great fitting ski jacket
I really like the fabric of this coat. its perfect for skiing. snug enough but the fabric allows you to move freely. its warm but not to hot. the only thing i don't really like is the belt. It looks great without the belt though. I love the colours its vibrant.

Amazing Ski Jacket!
LOve love love this jacket! It was very hard to get hold off but Gorgie in the Canary Wharf branch was so helpful and managed to acquire it for me!
Beautiful colour and perfect for the slopes! It was a size small and so pleased i didn't go for the medium (I'm 5ft1).
If you can get your hands on one i would defo recommend it and the rest of the SB ski gear.
