Snowspiration: Top 23 Snow Picks For Men


Getting kitted out for your snow trip or season is a massive part of being on the mountain. We all know the saying ‘all the gear but no idea’ and no one wants to be that guy. With each season comes some new trend or a new brand with fresh ideas, so how do you find the right balance between performance and still looking awesome? How do you choose between the snow jackets, snow pants, baselayers and accessories?

For some people, heading onto corduroy and into powder is a chance to mix colours that should never been worn on a daily basis. For others, a simple black combo is perfect against that white backdrop. If you’re struggling and can’t decide which way to go, no worries, we’ve got you covered with our top 23 snow picks for men this winter season.

Snow Jackets

Base layers

Layering up is key to keeping warm on the mountain; it’s easier to remove a layer when too hot than to get on the slopes and realise you don’t have enough on. A perfect base layer can be exactly what you need to keep you warm and regulate your body temperature whilst tearing up the slopes.

If you’re looking to get on the wild side then you can’t go wrong with the Safari thermals from Burton.  Crafted with DRYRIDE fabric, these thermals will wick away sweat from the skin to keep you dry and comfortable from first tracks to last lift.

To get completely mountain-ready, you’re going to be needing some rad accessories. We’re talking chunky knit beanies, such as the Portspy Beanie from DC, or retro-inspired designs, such as the Tokyo Bay Beanie from Analog.

No ride is going to be complete without a solid pair of gloves.
