How to choose your ski jacket? 3 Things to know about snow clothing
Choosing the ski jacket, an essential item in snow clothing, is the result of a sum of evaluations that we at Hey have considered fundamental since day # 1. Producing a ski suit calls us to be guarantors of three factors: waterproofness, breathability and wearability. Each of these, as a whole, guarantees the high performance not only of the technical fabrics used but also of the ski jacket itself. In this mini-guide we have therefore decided to clarify each of the three points, to guide you in choosing the protagonist jacket of your Hey snow clothing.
How to choose your ski jacket::
The first of the features to be taken into consideration when purchasing a ski jacket is waterproofing. In order to be highly performing, a snow suit must first and foremost be waterproof: for this reason, the Hey ski suits are produced following a long research process in which the great experts also and above all offer their contribution. of the ski world.
Waterproof snow clothing
Please note, for us at Hey it is essential that the ski jacket is waterproof in every single detail, starting with the waterproof front zip with chin protection to all the pockets that characterize the structure designed ad hoc for its design.
Furthermore, the waterproofing of the garments is a standard index, which is generally measured in so-called "water columns". This measurement meter (reported in millimeters) indicates nothing but the pressure exerted by the water on the technical material: as can be guessed, the challenge embraced by waterproof snow clothing is to ensure that the water does not penetrate inside! Hey uses fabrics with certified membranes that guarantee 20,000 water columns, ideal for the sector.
How to choose a ski jacket: breathable snow clothing
When the time comes to choose a ski jacket, there is an additional parameter that absolutely must not go unnoticed: how much water vapor (also caused by sweating) passes through the technical material in a given period of time? This question is answered precisely by the breathability index of the ski suit. How is it measured?
The formula that can help you in the calculation is the following: g / m², which is the amount of water vapor (measured in grams) that 1m² is capable of expelling over a 24 hour period. Generally, breathability can be indicated with G and even reach 20 thousand G. We at Hey are committed to ensuring that your ski suits are highly breathable, guaranteeing at least 10,000 G of breathability.
How to choose the ski jacket: the fit of the snow clothing
Finally, the fit of theski jacket is also crucial. Each Hey ski suit is produced after a long series of careful considerations, which include not only the research of design but also and above all the finding of innovative technical solutions. To do this, we study the fit of our snow clothing without ever forgetting what the technical gesture is: we want every skier to be free to experiment with fluid and natural movements. The shape of our ski jackets follows the movements thanks to the ergonomic design (principle also respected by the pants). The waist is also adjustable, the hood in turn is detachable.
The high performance is also guaranteed by a very careful choice of materials, which allow the creation of the highest quality products that do not compromise with style. The Hey ski jackets are Made in Europe and offered in a very varied range of colors, so that every skier and skier can find himself / herself in what he is wearing.
