Finding the right winter coat can be a challenge with so many brands and features on the market. At Benson Ski & Sport, we stock the most reliable brands that are sure to keep you warm, dry, and comfortable all winter long. Unsure where to start? Allow us to share some of our favorite winter coats.

Patagonia as a brand has been a winter staple for years among the outdoors community. In addition to excellent-quality winter coats, Patagonia has been known for their activism and community involvement since their start. They regularly partner with different organizations around the world focused on protecting and preserving the environment. Our top favorite Patagonia jacket is going to have to be the Nano Puff Jacket. This winter coat is ideal for a multitude of winter activities and is designed to be packable and portable, making it an ideal layer to throw into your skiing or snowboarding daypack. Featuring Patagonia’s traditional brick pattern, the Nano Puff Jacket has a 100% recycled polyester shell and 60-g PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Eco 100% postconsumer recycled polyester with P.U.R.E.™ (Produced Using Reduced Emissions) technology.

Helly Hansen
Helly Hansen is a well-known winter clothing provider that has been creating winter coats, pants, and other accessories for over 140 years. Based in Norway, Helly Hansen crafts winter clothing that can withstand the harshest elements and exposure. Not only do they create beautiful winter coats, but they also manufacture sailing gear, which is ideal for those living in wetter winter climates. Our favorite Helly Hansen winter coat is the 2020 SWIFT 4.0 Jacket. Featuring a 4-way stretch weatherproof HELLY TECH® fabric, this ski jacket is designed to be waterproof yet breathable. They’ve also considered the need to keep your phone on you for safety while you hit the slopes and have incorporated their LIFE POCKET™ technology into this all-in-one winter coat to help preserve your phone’s battery life.

Picture Organic Clothing
A newer brand to Benson Ski & Sport, Picture Organic Clothing is an organic, sustainable winter clothing brand that makes 100% of their products out of biological cotton certified GOTS (global organic textile standard) and 100% of their technical products out of at least 50% recycled polyester. Our personal favorite from Picture Organic Clothing is their Men’s Scape Jacket. This extra-warm reversible has a lightweight quilted design to keep you warm and dry at the same time, thanks to its thick insulation and PFC-free water repellent layer. The ergonomic hood, zippered pockets, and stretchy cuffs make it the ideal winter coat for any activity, from running errands around town to hitting the black diamond slopes.
