Find your perfect snowboard jacket
If you're interested in more than just looking stylish on the mountain and want to be prepared for all types of weather conditions, top snowboard brands like Burton, DC or Thirtytwo have high-quality snowboard jackets for almost all terrains. If you’re searching for the perfect snowboard jacket, then taking into account your main use is a big deal. For example, you’ll have to decide whether you need a high water column and a good ventilation system or whether a light jacket will be enough.
No matter what the snow brings, the skatedeluxe skate shop has several snowboard jackets for you to choose from. Whether backcountry or snow park, thanks to useful features and different styles you’ll find your perfect snowboard jacket at skatedeluxe.
Snowboard jackets - always well equipped
For comfort in the snow, snowboard jackets in the skatedeluxe skate shop have a lot of features to go along with them. In addition to wind and water-resistant as well as a breathable material, other features like perforated chin protection, practical ventilation system or wide hoods see to a comfortable fit. Crafty storage options such as a lift-pass or media pockets with audio output help you organize your smartphone or iPod.
To keep snow out of your jacket, many models feature adjustable cuffs, elastic snow skirt or a jacket-to-pants connection. Various models are also equipped with pockets for your goggles and an emergency whistle in dangerous situations.
What does the water column mean for snowboard jackets?
Textile water columns, a value in millimeters (mm), indicate the waterproofness of your functional jacket. The water column is measured with a 10 cm² piece of the material used, in which a glass column is stretched over. This column is then filled with 10 mm of water per second. The time is measured until three drops of water have penetrated through the material.
With a water column of 5000 mm, it takes 500 seconds for three drops of water to form on the back of the material used. In short: If you are in the snow park and on groomed slopes, jackets with a water column starting at 5000 mm are suitable, since this already offers a very high water density. Do you prefer boarding through deep snow and like to tour the backcountry? We recommend water columns starting from 10000mm since more snow per area can fall on the material of your jacket.
Breathability in snowboard jackets
Breathability, also referred to as water vapor permeability indicates how many grams of water vapor can escape through the fabric of your jacket in 24 hours per square meter. The goal is to let as much moisture escape from the inside of your clothing to the outside. So that a comfortable, dry feeling during strenuous activity is possible. This helps so that you won’t sweat so much or overheat when you’re snowboarding.
