Jackets for hitting the slopes

We had two new ski orientated jackets in last month, so I thought we'd have a closer inspection of them this morning. Plus it's ever so slowly getting cooler this week, so I don't feel as much as a prune talking about 700 fill down jackets...

Let's start off with The North Face Women's Sesia Down Jacket. Like the blog title implies, it's been made with the slopes in mind. It comes with the essential mountain features you'd expect; a snap down adjustable powder skirt to help keep the snow drift out, goggle pocket to keep your eyewear safe and an adjustable hem.

Insulation wise, it packs in a 600 down fill, so theres ample warmth to be had while your on the mountain side. It also has a water resistant outer, to help bead away light showers and of course snow drift when you venture out to colder terrains. The Sesia also features all the specs you'd expect from a North Face Jacket; 2 handwarmer pockets, adjustable hood, internal lycra cuffs, internal media security pocket to keep things like your mobile phones and MP3 players safe.

We've currently got the Women's Sesia Down Jacket in three colours; a vibrant Tubby Purple, TNF White and TNF Black.
Moving on to menswear, we have The North Face Hecktic Down Jacket. Again it's been designed for big mountain skiers and other snow sport fanatics. The Hecktic features a 700 quality down fill and uses Hyvent Alpha 2L for fully waterproof and breathable protection. As an added safety feature it comes with Recco avalanche rescue reflector's, and if you fancy a bit of climbing in the snow or just want some added protection the Hecktic has an adjustable, helmet compatible hood as well.

You won't have trouble finding space to store all your essentials in with the Hecktic either, it features handwarmer zip pockets, bicep accessory pocket, internal media security pocket, internal goggle pocket and an internal stash pocket. Other handy specs include; zip integration powder skirt, pant-a-locks, adjustable hem system and hook and loop adjustable cuffs.

We've got the Hecktic Down Jacket in stock in TNF Black and rather snazzy Orange zips.
