Mountain HardwearSnowbasin Down Jacket - Women's

Warmth is just a puffy away.

Rip across the slopes in warm style with the Mountain Hardwear Women's Snowbasin Down jacket. This flattering down layer is warm enough to withstand the bitter cold of bluebird days and cozy enough to be worn during down at the base as you sip on a much-needed hot toddy. This jacket has an integrated wrist gaiter system and powder skirt jacket-to-pant connection system that's compatible with corresponding Mountain Hardwear ski pants to keep snow out and warmth in. When the powder gets in your face, though, reach for a spare pair of goggles or goggle wipe that's conveniently in the pockets integrated in this coat. Stay warm with this jacket's responsibly gathered down, so you can look good and feel good on the mountain.

  • Insulating jacket for cold and clear frontside ski sessions
  • Hydrophobic down is warm, compressible, and responsibly sourced
  • Powder skirt keeps snow from getting under jacket
  • Wrist gaiters and thumbholes keep sleeves in place and snow out
  • Plenty of pockets hold essentials for the mountain

Love this jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XS

This jacket kept me warm while skiing just below 0 degrees C. I only wear a single base layer underneath this. While I was on the ski lift, the icy wind almost froze my nose off, but my body was completely fine. Love the pockets (they are very soft), love the ski skirt to keep the jacket nice and snug to my body.

I originally purchased size S, thinking that I would wear extra layers underneath. I ended up downsizing to XS since S was way too big.

Great Jacket

I am really happy with this jacket! It is very light weight and I find it warm and it feels like you are wearing a sleeping bag without the bulk. Love that the hood is large enough to fit over my helmet when skiing on cold days. Very happy with pockets and location/size. This is now my go to coat and I wear it over suits to work too. The only days I would opt for another jacket is wet weather. Not sure it will hold up to skiing in freezing rain.

How warm is it? Can it keep you warm down to 10 degrees? 0 degrees? You said it is lightweight so not sure how it will do in the winter.
