Perfect shell jacket for skiing and hiking
Our shell jacket is perfect for all outdoor activities year round, but especially for skiing, snowboarding and hiking. The shell jacket has a generous fit that makes layering easy especially in the winter or otherwise colder weather.
When you are heading to skiing slopes, it’s good to wear multiple layers under the jacket, starting with a merino wool base layer. Merino wool is very soft to your skin, it’s warm and also breathes. As the next layer, wear a wool fleece, either slim fit Ada fleece or an oversized Minna fleece. To prevent cold air going inside your neck, and to keep your chin warm, you can wear a neckwarmer. As a final touch, don’t forget warm socks and gloves.
For hiking trips, you can combine the shell jacket to our hiking and outdoor pants. Depending on the temperature, you can wear our Ingrid long sleeve or Ingrid short sleeve or even Minna fleece under the jacket.

Frequently asked questions
What is a shell jacket?
A shell jacket is a waterproof and windproof jacket to protect you in wind, rain and snow. It is very durable and typically lightweight but not very stretchy. Due to their light weight, shell jackets are easy to pack when space is an issue.
When should you wear a shell jacket?
Shell jacket is especially perfect for outdoor activities that always involve water and/or wind, such as skiing, snowboarding and sailing. It’s also a must-have garment for all outdoor activities, such hiking and backpacking, when they take place in rainy, windy or cold weather.
What should you have under a shell jacket?
Shell jackets are perfect for layering. In a cold weather, you can wear a merino base layer, outdoor pants, and wool fleece under the shell jacket. In warmer weather, you can have only a merino long sleeve or a merino short sleeve under the jacket. It is also beneficial to have an armpit ventilation in the shell jacket, to be able to add breathability when you get warm
What is the difference between a shell jacket and a soft shell jacket?
While a shell jacket is waterproof, lightweight, durable, and less stretchy, a soft shell jacket is water-resistant, stretchy and more breathable, and offers protection from light snow and rain. Most soft shells are only water repellent, and they are designed to move with you and maintain a comfortable body temperature during high-energy activities.
How do you wash a shell jacket?
Always read the washing instructions on the garment before washing. Generally you can wash in 40 degrees, but you should use cleaning products that are specifically made for waterproof outdoor gear (such as Nikwax Tech Wash). These don’t leave any residue behind that could clog the pores. Do not use fabric softener or bleach, since these can clog the pores or even damage the membrane. Let the garment dry properly. Water-repellent treatment can be reactivated in using a dryer at a low temperature.
