Looking for the best men’s ski jackets for 2022? We’ve got you covered with our top men’s ski jacket picks for the coming winter!
£175 | montecwear.com
The Moss jacket is a new addition to the Montec lineup for the 2021/22 winter season, and all we have to say is… what took them so long? Montec is well known for their do-it-all Fawk jacket, and last year they launched their backcountry technical shell, the Fenix. But that still left some people wanting something in between — enter the Moss, a lined shell with big mountain aspirations and plenty of everyday style and convenience too.
The Moss champions Montec’s own ShieldTec 2-layer shell material, which sports 20,000mm of waterproofing and 20,00g/m2 of breathability, and is enhanced with the Huntsman Zelan R3 ECO PFC-free durable water repellent treatment, which just so happens to be the same as the Teflon EcoElite DWR used by some of the best brands around, in everything except name.
On top of that, Montec have given this jacket a super tough woven polyester outer, a full storm-guard adjustable hood, fully waterproofed zips, and fully taped seams – just in case a single drop of water was getting any big ideas.
