From the fabric perspective, the requirements of ski jackets are generally much higher than these of windbreakers. Now the windbreakers tend to be lightweight. The mature use of thermal bonding technology and the wide application of a large number of advanced fabrics have reduced the overall weight of windbreakers.
Compared with ski jackets, windbreakers are lighter and simpler in appearance. Compared with the windbreakers, the ski jacket emphasizes waterproofness and warmth retention.
Therefore, the fabric requirements for ski jackets are relatively high, and more materials are needed to improve the performance, such as thicker linings, and more fabric pressure coatings. Therefore, the ski jacket is relatively heavier on the whole and has a more complex appearance.
