Exploration Ski Jacket
A skiing jacket that ticks all the boxes
A week before I headed to Klosters in Switzerland I stumbled across this jacket. I bought a snug xs and should have bought small, but couldn't resist it, mainly for the fab colour blue. (I'm blond)
The length was very flattering and it competed well alongside my other 25 jackets (prada, jet set, moncler, spyder and Dior). It was warm and stylish in -5 . Looked unique. The inner pocket was great for my phone
I would have liked the belt in blue though to keep the line clean as the white hood in fur was enough white. Well priced.

Stylish yet technical winter jacket
I was looking for a stylish yet technically functional jacket to keep me warm and dry in sub zero temperatures and this really proved to be the ideal jacket. It is wonderfully warm and I felt toasty during a hailstorm in Norway. It kept me dry during heavy rain, except for a little dampness on the fleece lining of the lower sleeve. The five pockets are very useful. I love it.

The jacket was lovely and I so wish it looked as lovely on me. Unfortunately I sent it back as I am rather pear shape and it didn't do me justice. I liked the belt, but the skirt part was unflattering on my hips, although it did cover my bottom nicely. It looked and felt expensive and was just what I would have liked if it had been 2inches longer. .

Stylish, Warm & Waterproofed Jacket
I am so happy with this cool jacket! This was for my 3rd Ski trip in my life, my first ski jacket, wasn't sure if I ever ski again, so didn't want to buy an expensive jacket that I can only wear for skiing and look ridiculous. 1st I must tell you that everything that I purchased, the quality is even better than I saw online! They should proudly write more details but all the convenient pockets has perfect features like an i-pod pocket, hanging clip for lift tag and they are cute orange, has inner fleece with detachable bottom closure that snaps around your waist, and sleeve's got inner cuffs with thumb holes to keep your hands warm. I am a beginner skier and tend to get cold, so I wore 3 layers under this jacket and got sweat. I felt a little coldness though in my arms when I was up on the lift but not too bad, it is a very stylish, warm, very nicely water proofed jacket that you can wear in the city as well! Size wise, I normally wear small but got a Medium to wear layers and it was perfect. I'm 5'5" and it was long enough to cover my behind :) The cute pants were too expensive for me, so I matched with Northface's Orange ski pants but I'd buy next time! I live in NY but they shipped it from London, came in very quickly for free but didn't realized that I had to pay another tax via DHL shipping company.. but it was totally worth it!

Excellent ski jacket
This is a very stylish ski jacket which is also practical and great in all weather. The blue colour is unique and distinctive on the pistes.

A hood that is big enough to go over you helmet - brilliant!
I was a little nervous about buying ski wear from Sweaty Betty as its not a recognised long standing producer such as Eider etc. However, I completely fell in love with it when I tried it on and actually looked like a woman wearing it rather than the local dustman which is how I normally feel in my ski gear! The fit is fantastic and the 4 way stretch makes it really comfortable. It was warm but I did have up to 4 layers underneath as it was minus 15 on my trip. As the title suggests I was thrilled to bits with the hood. It really does fit over your helmet properly. You could pull it up on the lifts when your body is colder and then down for skiing without any trouble or just leave it up. Comfort around the face and neck was fantastic. On the down side, unfortunately I hadn't noticed whilst trying it on that one of the poppers on the interior skirt had already pulled off, so I will be taking the jacket back to the store in the hope of an exchange as it really should be a lot stronger than that. I had loads of admiring comments made about the whole outfit which whilst it didn't make me ski any better, made me feel amazing :-)

Excellent stylish practical ski jacket
This jacket looks superb and is very stylish. The blue colour with orange and white trimmings is gorgeous and the furry hood elegant. The bonus is that it is very warm, wind resistant and waterproof with a lovely soft shell outer. It has a very good fit, not too bulky and is easy to move around in.
An excellent and extremely stylish jacket.

Stunning ski jacket
I purchased this jacket and the matching ski trousers before heading off to the French Alps in early January and was not disappointed. Had so many compliments about the look of my suit. The colour is stunning and great for brunettes! It is comfortable and really stretchy which is great when your are skiing something a bit steeper and faster. Love this jacket!

I adore this jacket..it's much heavier than I thought it would be..very warm and toasty. It's tailored enough that you don't feel like a big blue blob..hate that about some jackets. I got a medium..still roomy enough to put layers..I'm 5'5" 135lbs.. It's got great pockets and a good # of them.. love it that I can pop my Iphone into the inside pocket and port the wire to my ear buds. It comes a little longer in the back..so covers more of your rear which is great on really cold days and on the chairlift a lot. The faux fur hood is removable and looks real..nice touch. I got the pants too and really liked them ..I got the Medium short..they fit perfectly but the style doesn't look as good on me since I'm curvy but I'd recommend it to my friends with smaller hips and thighs. LOVE Sweaty Betty.
