OutdoorGearLab.com Announces Best Women's Ski Jacket Award Winners

Women's Skiing Jacket Editor's Choice, Top Pick and Best Buy Awards Given for 2013

Online PR News – 02-April-2013 – CHEYENNE, WY – CHEYENNE, WY—OutdoorGearLab.com announced today the findings of the 2013 Awards for the Women's Skiing Jacket category, listing this year’s Editor's Choice, Best Buy and Top Pick awards. The OutdoorGearLab Review Reviewers chose the award winning jackets after extensive field testing at Lake Tahoe, California and the Wasatch backcountry. They took 8 women's insulated ski jackets and put them to head-to-head tests to figure out what was the best in the following categories: warmth, ventilation, water resistance, ski specific features, style and fit, and comfort. We think some of the most important aspects of a ski jacket are that it is warm and water resistant, and that its features make skiing at a resort easier and more comfortable. Even though all the jackets we reviewed were of high quality, we did find that some jacket are more conducive to resort skiing than others. Each underwent extensive side by side tests to evaluate these key performance metrics. View the complete Women's Ski Jacket Review - http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/Ski-Jacket-Womens-Reviews
