With a stiff, rugged, seam-sealed Gore-Tex shell, waterproof zipper technology and a Recco avy rescue system built into the sleeve, this shell is all about business. Well, almost. If you happen spill a drink during après, you’re all set. ($499)

This lightweight fleece-lined Polartec jacket is a midlayer-softshell hybrid. And its incredible warmth could have something to do with where this company’s based: Iceland. The best part, though, is the hood: It actually turns with your head, expanding your visibility far beyond the usual Gore-Tex tunnel. ($290)

As if the adorable color combo and flattering fit aren't enough reasons to buy this jacket. But, if you want the boring details, its…

As if the adorable color combo and flattering fit aren’t enough reasons to buy this jacket. But, if you want the boring details, its waterproof/breathable nylon is comfortable, warm and lightweight. And it’s got a mini storm skirt. Isn’t that cute? ($299)

The new Puffski is aptly named: At 39 oz, it's a lightweight for its category. But when the windchill's minus-60, don't expect it to act like one.…

The new Puffski is aptly named: At 39 oz, it’s a lightweight for its category. But when the windchill’s minus-60, don’t expect it to act like one. Its reassuring crinkle of Primaloft filling and waterproof/breathable shell insulates with the best of them. ($300)

Whether hunting for fresh tracks, extreme steeps or a cold après pitcher, this jacket's for you. The fully-taped, seam-sealed three-layer shell will…

Whether hunting for fresh tracks, extreme steeps or a cold après pitcher, this jacket’s for you. The fully-taped, seam-sealed three-layer shell will stand up to anything mother nature fires at you, and a quilted Permaloft lining zips out for styling around town. ($350)

So you want to hike the headwall for some nice corn, but it’s March and your Gore-Tex is already sticking to your back. The Stingray is the perfect alternative—a hoodless softshell-midlayer hybrid that’s windproof yet very breathable. But buyers beware: Now you have no excuse. ($350)

Mithril, indeed—this fabric is so supple, it must be made with magic. And that's not all it has up its sleeve: It's waterproof, fleece-lined, fully…

Mithril, indeed—this fabric is so supple, it must be made with magic. And that’s not all it has up its sleeve: It’s waterproof, fleece-lined, fully taped (geometric design is super cool) and has dual drawcords to seal out waist-high fluff. And the price? Must be smoke and mirrors. ($189)

Its powder skirt, inner and outer zipper, and Velcro closure may take triple the trouble to baton down, but it'll definitely keep the elements where…

Its powder skirt, inner and outer zipper, and Velcro closure may take triple the trouble to baton down, but it’ll definitely keep the elements where they belong—outside. Now we just need to figure out what to put in all those pockets. ($275)

In this case,

In this case, “pine is a color, not a tree, and yes, it makes you look cool. But while we loved the two tones (we dubbed the other “kiwi) and relaxed fit, the Neve’s quilted Thermolite insulation is what sold us. And, with thoughtful touches like a zip-off hood that fits over your helmet, the color is just eye candy anyway. ($250)

The Apogee lives up to its name—and its price. A nifty removable down liner makes for stylish après wear, and a three-layer shell is nearly…

The Apogee lives up to its name—and its price. A nifty removable down liner makes for stylish après wear, and a three-layer shell is nearly waterproof enough for Coast Guard duty. Disappearing pocket zippers keep your wallet—thinner now—neatly tucked away. ($600)

It feels like pulling on your favorite hoodie. Except this one won't get soggy on the slopes. Ibex combines merino wool with nylon and Lycra to…

It feels like pulling on your favorite hoodie. Except this one won’t get soggy on the slopes. Ibex combines merino wool with nylon and Lycra to create a versatile softshell that’ll keep you warm on that ancient double and cool you down on the hike to your secret stash. ($295)

If you think stretchy and silky are best left to your wife's lingerie drawer, think again. A soft laminate outer and fleece inner create the next…

If you think stretchy and silky are best left to your wife’s lingerie drawer, think again. A soft laminate outer and fleece inner create the next generation of jacket: a midlayer-softshell hybrid. And, speaking of lingerie, comfy pads for shouldering two pairs of skis might be your best bet for seeing some soon. ($440)

The Menalee is always prepared. Boasting a removable hood with plastic side windows for visibility, Lycra cuffs with thumb holes, internal…

The Menalee is always prepared. Boasting a removable hood with plastic side windows for visibility, Lycra cuffs with thumb holes, internal sunglass/goggle pocket complete with cleaning cloth and a soft chin flap with tiny holes for ventilation, this jacket would make any Boy Scout proud. ($554)

Don't let this skinny shell fool you: With waterproof/breathable nylon, full powder skirt and a detachable storm hood, it'll hold its own—even when…

Don’t let this skinny shell fool you: With waterproof/breathable nylon, full powder skirt and a detachable storm hood, it’ll hold its own—even when Jackson Hole’s tram is blown down. And spring skiing at Squaw? Strategically placed vents make sure you don’t get steamed. ($240)

One thing about skiing powder: It often requires braving the storm that brings it. But with this double-duty jacket—an insulating zip-in softshell is…

One thing about skiing powder: It often requires braving the storm that brings it. But with this double-duty jacket—an insulating zip-in softshell is perfect on its own for spring—you won’t feel a thing. Except maybe lonliness after all your friends have bailed for the lodge. ($329)

We couldn't find

We couldn’t find “Calexico in the dictionary, but we know what warm means. Thinsulate insulation and a two-layer nylon shell block out winter at its coldest, while a zip-off powder skirt and form-fitting hood keep snow where it belongs: face shots only, please. ($275)

With more pockets than your fly-fishing vest and a durable, work-coat feel, this jacket stands apart from the flashy Gore-tex set. That doesn't mean…

With more pockets than your fly-fishing vest and a durable, work-coat feel, this jacket stands apart from the flashy Gore-tex set. That doesn’t mean it’s not suited for the slopes: It’s got all the bells and whistles. So no matter what you do in it, you’ll be really, really warm. ($275)
