Arc'teryx Sentinel AR Jacket

Best 2021-2022 women's ski jackets
 
 

Arc’teryx’s reputation across the outdoor industry precedes itself and they've been making some of the best women’s ski jackets for quite some time. Even if you haven’t tried any of their gear, you’ve probably heard about it, and that’s because spending the extra cash on their top-notch layering systems is well worth it if you’re the kind of rider who refuses to compromise on performance.

The Sentinel AR is the essential 3-layer shell for freeride touring. Longer cut GORE-TEX garments give you durability and protection without the bulk, key for versatility both in and out of bounds. A thin flannel lining adds some extra warmth for when you’re assessing your line at the top of your ascent. Additional features like a StormHood, watertight zippers, articulated elbows, and velcro cuff adjusters that don’t catch eliminate the need to worry about the details. Pair 'em with the Sentinel AR Pants and you’ve got a bombproof, snowproof system. Go ahead, earn those turns. The Sentinel AR has your back.

Trew Gear Astoria Jacket

The best women's ski jackets of 2021-2022
 

We’re big fans of Trew over here at evo… although we might be a little biased after our recent outerwear collaboration project, which includes this jacket... For 2022, we’re stoked to have collaborated with this grassroots Pacific Northwest brand on a jacket “trew” to both of our rainy roots here in the Cascade range. Inspired by the effortless style of one-plank rippers, this loose-fitting, 2L jacket is a great resort lapper built for the unpredictability we know and love in the northwest. Pit vents, taped seams, and RECCO compatibility are ready to take on wind, rain, and snow so you can stay dry, confident, and stylish, without breaking the bank.
