With summer already gone, ski season will soon be upon us. It’s a great activity for kids and adults alike. It is fun, it keeps you active and you get to spend time away from the noise and gloom of the city life.
Being safe is the main priority when skiing and jackets are one component of that. Not just any jacket, mind you, as skiing is an activity best enjoyed with the appropriate jacket.
Ski jackets are designed specifically for skiing and snowboarding, and for good reason. Being warm is not the only thing that a jacket must provide when you are out there on the snow. You need to be able to move freely and unrestricted from what you are wearing and a ski jacket provides exactly that.
While there are plenty of options available, and we, too, have looked at some of those options in the past, today we thought to compile a selection of 7 ski jackets under $100.
Being safe and having fun does not mean you have to spend a fortune, so let’s take a look at these affordable jackets we have picked out for you.
