WeatherWool almost always uses two-way zippers for the center-front zip of our garments.   Two-way zippers are important for convenience (sitting, pocket access, temperature regulation, etc.).  WeatherWool zippers are always made in the USA, like all WeatherWool components (and labor).

Mountain Jacket / SkiJac

Description

$900 up to size 2X;  $930 for 3X;  $960 for 4X

We are completely sold out of the Mountain / SkiJac but expect to ship some of these in Drab Green toward the fourth quarter of 2024.

You can backorder without obligation (price set to 0) from this page.  If you want to reserve a SkiJac, please set up a SHIP ASAP order.

Latest information about our production is here. Our entire inventory is here.

We will make more Mountain/SkiJacs as soon as we can, but we'll be starting with a small quantity in FullWeight Drab Green Fabric.  If you have interest in this item, you can order here, or contact us any way you like -- no obligation -- and we'll get in touch for the details when we prepare for the production run. It's a really big help to us to know in advance what people are interested in, and the $0 price just tells us you are interested.

Originally designed by Advisor Chad Borofsky, a ski patrol veteran since about 1990, the SkiJac works for all types of skiing and many other outdoor activities. Some of the people who like it best don't ski at all, and began to call it The Mountain Jacket because it tested really well at the US Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center at Pickel Meadows. The design of this Jacket was inspired by a couple of Ski Jackets Chad liked, plus his suggestions for improving them.

Features:

  • Construction of our Merino Jacquard Fabric. We have so far only made this Jacket in FullWeight Fabric, but if you are interested in MidWeight, please just let us know
  • Full-front, heavy-duty YKK Vislon double-zipper protected by a storm flap. Next time we make the SkiJac we will use Slot Buttons instead of snaps to secure the storm flap
  • Fully attached Hood with draw strings for adjustment. Hood is large enough to go over a ski helmet or a Petzl hardhat
  • Large, zippered handwarmer pockets at each side of the SkiJac
  • Large zippered inner pockets on left and right sides
  • Draw cord at waist
  • Additional draw cord at bottom sweep
  • Elasticized cuffs or maybe with Slot Button adjustments
  • Large Pit Zips with two-way zipper allowing a great deal of flexibility regarding how much of the pit zips can be opened or closed at each end
  • Dolman Sleeves (a loose sleeve cut in one piece with the body of a garment) offer huge freedom of movement to the shoulder and arm
  • We anticipate adding one or two outer side-entry (Napoleon style) zippered pockets on the chest
  • We will probably add one or two forearm pockets to hold small items such as RFID lift passes
  • Removable powder cuff
  • In size Large, in FullWeight Fabric, the SkiJac weighs 4 lbs 2 oz (1.87 kg)
  • In the photos, the model is wearing Drab

Please give us your suggestions. We are looking for input from skiers in particular.

Thank You! --- Ralph

I'd love to get any information on wool for skiers and snowboarders. WeatherWool does not make base layers -- yet! -- but here is a link to a SKIS.com review of wool vs polyester base layers for snowboarding.
