Women's Ski Jackets, Parkas, Pants And Accessories
OK, hate me if you must but I think it's darn hard to find ski wear that's both practical for serious skiing and yet good looking for hanging out in one of the resort area's shop/relax areas at the base. Do you agree? So much of it is samey stuff with little shape, drab and boring colors and not much in the way of pizzazz at all. Having got that rant out of the way, I need to find something for my ski week that's coming up real soon. I need a new ski jacket for starters and a good pair of pants that I can move around in and yet show off some of the major assets and I need all the ski odds and ends that go with the basics. I don't know if I can get away with my dinged up old Rossis and my boots could use some help but I'll think about that tomorrow said Scarlett!
First things first, let's locate a good jacket with some design oomph going for it. Well, after a whole lot of online searching, I finally came up with this jacket that is one that makes use of a woman's anatomy. Don't laugh, precious few of them do. Anyway, I think this one looks real good. Go to Ski Pro in Phoenix and other AZ locations. There you'll find a Nils Ladies Tia Jacket 06-07 with these features: Short hip length with cinched in elastic back waist and laminated seams, CBL 25", fleece inside collar, media and cell phone pockets, sealed seams to stop that powder creep, powder skirt. Ski Pro is selling this $395 parka for $276.95.
I think that Nils Parka is going to look great with a pair of pants I found at Christy Sports (online and all the populated Western areas). The pants are Spyder's Platinum Garnet Pants and is listed under Spyder Item# 2313. Stud detailing along the legs and a sexy fit, waterproof and taped critical seams stop water penetration. They come with removable elasticized suspenders. Lower leg zippers for easy dressing and boot access. The pants have thinsulate insulation. The item # is 2313 and Christy's have them priced at $425.
While you're getting parka and pants, how are you set for long johns? Not terribly come-on although you'd never know it if you roomed with my boy friend! But they're vital. Let's look. Actually, how about this one piece at Christy's by Hot Chillys? Its a MTF 3000 Long Underwear Top for $35.00. The blurb says moisture transport to keep skin dry and promote warmth and a contoured body fit, soft cotton feel. Made of 92% spun polyester and just enough Lycra to retain its shape. Sound layer for a day on the slopes or a week for that matter.
Hat - gloves? Next!
