Both pieces are made from GORE-TEX® Pro fabrics and are guaranteed to be durable enough to withstand your most extreme adventures. This particular kit is ideal for technical skiers and snowboarders venturing into the backcountry and out of bounds and is equipped with hidden RECCO® reflectors on the jacket and on the pants.

3. Norrøna

Norrøna is a Norwegian brand that has newly become available in Canada. All their products are top-quality and come in a range of fun, flashy colours so you can stand out on the hill and be easily spotted in a snow storm.

Our favourite men’s kit from Norrøna this season is the Lofoten GORE-TEX Pro Jacket paired with the Lofoten GORE-TEX Pro Pants. Both pieces are available in vibrant, fun colours and will keep you protected from any conditions thrown at you on the mountain. Durable and weatherproof, it’s no surprise that these pieces are some of Norrøna’s most popular products.

5. Patagonia

Patagonia is a brand taking all the right initiatives to better themselves as a company environmentally. Their goal is to provide top-quality gear with the least impact on the environment possible and they are continuously impressing the outdoor industry doing just that.

The pieces we felt the best to portray our favourite men’s ski kit from Patagonia for 2017 include the Men’s PowSlayer Jacket and the Men’s Untracked Pants. The jacket is constructed with GORE-TEX® Pro fabric whereas the pants are made with regular GORE-TEX® fabric but both will keep you dry when the conditions on the mountain turn sloppy. Both pieces are equipped with a RECCO® reflector which will help rescuers find you should you find yourself in an undesirable situation in the backcountry or out of bounds at the resort.
