What is "Ski Jacket" - Definition & Explanation

Refers to any type of wind-resistant jacket worn when skiing. The conventional type zips in front and may be made of nylon, wool, fur or quilted fabric. Frequently it has an attached hood. Usually waist- or hip-length with zippered pockets, ski jackets frequently have a more high-fashion look than a parka. Other features commonly found on ski jackets include zippered pockets to keep snow out, zippers that run top to bottom to make it easier to open with gloves on, a tight neck closure, and adjustable cuffs that allow the wearer to tuck glove opening under the cuffs and to prevent snow from getting up the sleeves.
A ski jacket is a garment meant for participating in winter sports, especially Nordic (cross-country) or Alpine (down-hill) skiing. It is generally a unisex garment and can also be part of a ski suit. They are made from wind- and water-resistant or water-proof fabric, and have non-removable liners made of nylon, silk, cotton or taffeta.
