"First and foremost, ski jackets are made differently," Anthony Heifara Rutgers, cofounder of Aztech Mountain, explains, noting important details like a nonrestrictive silhouette that allows for movement, an extensive hood to fit over a helmet, a proper powder skirt, and correctly placed pockets and zippers.

"I am constantly looking at jackets and ski jackets alike, and the really good ones—the ones that get my attention—are distinguished by their use of fabrics," he continues. Matte technical materials with incredible stretch are the founder's favorite for an elevated and functional look. "Two- and three-layer waterproof, breathable nylons are a must in any high-performance skiwear," he says, adding that Aztech Mountain sources its nylons from Switzerland or Japan. "These fabrics perform in any condition but still provide an incredible hand feel that is buttery soft to the touch."

Aesthetically, the designs of the best ski jackets plays a more significant role than just being great looking. "A really well-made ski jacket is not over-designed," Rutgers tells BAZAAR. While current trends include bold colors and striking prints—and the desire for a standout ski look is not to be disregarded—the skiwear expert says simpler designs will perform best. Large logos, exaggerated trims, and the like, while fun, won't exactly enhance practicality.

"It comes down to what kind of skier you are and what conditions you are skiing in," Rutgers says about choosing the best ski jacket. "I am seeing an increasing trend towards shells that give her the most versatility via different layering options."

"I love the '90s vibe of our Hayden Pants—cargo pockets, fuller cut, belted waist—paired back to the cropped bubble shape of the Minnie Nuke," Rutgers says of his favorite Aztech Mountain look this season. "It's sexy, tough, and totally my vibe."
