Peak Performance’s Alaska Melange ski jacket

A ski jacket that will keep you warm as well as protected

Peak Performance Alaska Melange Ski jacket

This quilted ski jacket from Peak Performance has caught our eye this week. 

And if you’re about to venture to ski or board in Europe, you’ll need a jacket that will keep you warm as well as protected, and we say the ‘Alaska Melange’ will certainly do the job.

The hood stays out all of the time and is adjustable, so you can get a good fit around a helmet and goggles. There’s a pocket for your ski pass on the sleeve and a goggle wiper in one of the interior pockets. For those off-pisteing, it also has a Recco fitted, for rescue in an avalanche.

It’s pricey at £380, but for that you get style and performance from a jacket that will last a few seasons.
