The waterproofness of a snowboard jacket is measured in millimeters of water column (mm). The higher the number of mm, the more water pressure the jacket can withstand. Most snowboard jackets have a waterproof rating between 5,000 mm and 20,000 mm.
To check if your snowboard jacket is still waterproof, you can drop a droplet of water on the outside of the jacket. If the water beads up and rolls off the jacket, the waterproof coating is still intact.
No, not all snowboard jackets are insulated. There are insulated jackets with built-in warmth and shell jackets without insulation, which are ideal for use in warmer conditions or for those who prefer to choose their own layers.
Yes, most snowboard jackets have a windproof feature, which is essential to keep you warm and comfortable while snowboarding in cold and windy conditions.
Although both jackets have similar features, snowboard jackets are usually slightly longer and looser in fit to provide more freedom of movement during snowboarding. Ski jackets are often more tailored and shorter in length.

What should a good snowboard jacket contain?
A good snowboard jacket is an essential part of your ski equipment. It provides protection from the cold, wind and snow, while it should also be breathable to dissipate excess heat and moisture. Here are some important features that a good snowboard jacket should meet:
- Waterproofing: A high level of waterproofing is crucial to keeping you dry in snow and rain. Look at the water column rating; the higher the number, the more water-resistant the snowboard jacket is.
- Breathability: A good snowboard jacket should also be breathable, allowing excess heat and perspiration to escape. This keeps you comfortable and dry while snowboarding.
- Insulation: Depending on the climate and your personal preferences, you can choose a jacket with synthetic or down insulation. Make sure the insulation provides enough warmth for the conditions you will be snowboarding in.
- Windproofness: A windproof snowboard jacket protects you from cold winds while descending the mountain.
- Snow skirt: A built-in snow skirt prevents snow from getting into your jacket when you fall or go off-piste.
- Adjustable hood: A hood is useful for extra protection from wind and snow, and should be adjustable so you can properly adjust it to fit your helmet.
- Plenty of pockets: Convenient zippered pockets are great for storing your ski pass, phone, money and other small necessities.
- Durability: Choose a snowboard jacket that is made of high-quality materials that can withstand wear and tear.
By paying attention to these features, you can find a good snowboard jacket that will protect you from the elements and ensure a comfortable and enjoyable snowboarding experience.
Waterproof snowboard jacket
The water column of a snowboard jacket indicates how waterproof the jacket is. The higher the value in 'mm' is, the more waterproof the fabric of the jacket is. Especially if you regularly go into the powder, it is important to have a snowboard jacket with a minimum water column of 10.000 mm. Also check if the seams of the jacket are taped. This prevents water or moisture from seeping in through the seams. A good waterproof snowboard jacket can also be recognized by waterproof zippers.
What does a good breathable snowboard jacket mean?
A good breathable snowboard jacket is able to transport moisture and heat from the inside to the outside, keeping your body dry and comfortable while snowboarding. This is especially important because you often sweat and produce excess heat while snowboarding, which can lead to feeling clammy and uncomfortable if the moisture cannot escape.
A jacket with high breathability uses advanced materials and technologies to promote this moisture management. Typically, a waterproof and breathable membrane, such as Gore-Tex, is used to construct the jacket's outer layer. This membrane has microscopic pores that block water molecules, while allowing water vapor (sweat) to escape through it.
A properly breathable snowboard jacket thus prevents overheating and helps regulate your body temperature, allowing you to snowboard comfortably longer, even in challenging conditions.
Snowboard jacket combined with snowboard pants
Are you looking for a snowboard jacket and snowboard pants? And are you looking for an awesome combo? The jackets from Picture and Airblaster can be attached to snowboard pants from the same brand. This way, your snowboard suit always stays in place and prevents snow from getting under your jacket when you make a slide.
