You can find the value of water column in the description of the product. The water column indicates how waterproof the fabric is. The higher the value of the water column the more water pressure a jacket can withstand before it soaks through.
Breathable jackets will allow perspiration to escape, without becoming damp and cold. The higher the breathability the better moisture will be transported to the outside.
Find your favourite midlayer jacket at SkiWebShop. From lightweight and breathable to warm and cozy, we provide you with the season's top midlayers for skiing and winter. In the 3-layer ski clothing system, the midlayer should give thermal insulation in cold conditions and ensure optimum breathability in warm weather. Our priority is to deliver high-quality midlayer jackets for competitive prices.
Between your ski jacket and thermal clothing you can wear a fleece or a thin windbreaker. A good example is the Kilpi Mid Layer Nektaria. This jacket is ideal as an intermediate layer on cold days or simply as an outer layer on hot days. Wearing a good mid layer can be very beneficial because you can simply take off your ski jacket but still protected from the cold, for example at lunch on the terrace. In addition, the mid layer fits easily into your backpack if you don’t want to wear the jacket for a while.
