Men's ski jacket - what is important when choosing

Your ski jacket should suit your type of riding, so depending on whether you're a resort skier, you like to lap the park, or you love the backcountry, your choice might change. Insulation, waterproofing, fit, and features of a ski jacket will all determine its suitability to your preferred riding style.
Different models for skiing and winter adventures
Dope offers many different options regarding jacket models that make them perfect for specific situations or great choices for all types of riding. The Adept and Blizzard FZ jackets have a front zip which makes them versatile.

The Akin model has lots of storage, so it's a good choice for long days on the mountain in winter.
