Protest Sportswear

With the colder months creeping in, it’s soon going to be darker and colder on your way to work or dropping the kids off to school. Not wanting to get caught out in the cold or rain, I’ve been looking at Protest’s women’s ski jackets to keep me warm and dry. There is so much in the way of choice; you can really find a style to suit you and know that the quality is going to be great. Protest are a design-led sportswear company from Holland which was founded by a small group of snowboarders in 1993. The concept is simple; designing fashionable, affordable and most importantly functional sportswear for everyone.

In the past I’ve been known to shop just for the look of an item but in the winter months, this doesn’t usually end well. I’ve had jackets and coats which claim to be water proof only to return home from a wet school drop off absolutely soaked to my skin. When you buy with Protest, you know you can shop with confidence.

Women’s Ski Jackets

I ordered the Peppe in dark grey as I’ve been after a shorter coat for a while. The Peppe ski jacket as well as looking stylish with its herringbone design also uses two white coloured panels to add to the tailored look of the jacket. The main bonuses for me with this jacket are that it is waterproof and windproof so I know I’m not going to get soaked on the school run or our wintry woodland walks. The zipped pockets are always a bonus as no one want to lose their keys or phone! I personally love the faux fur trim and hood but if you’re not a fan, you can easily remove one or both of these elements to create your perfect ski jacket.

Although I won’t be using it for skiing (this year at least), it does come with some super handy features if you intend to use it for skiing. There’s a specifically designed goggle pocket, lift pass pocket, Lycra cuffs and non-elasticated waist gaiter to help keep out the snow as well as vent zips to help regulate your temperature and a YKK zipper for superb quality.

Jackets and Jumpers

For the crisp but cold mornings where a ski jacket might be a little much, Protest also have a range of women’s fleece jackets, hoodies and body warmers to choose from. The fleece jackets are super warm and toastie so would be perfect for those winter days to keep you wrapped up while a hoody will be perfect for wearing all day in the slightly warmer days. Chuck on a bodywarmer over the top to nip out and it will keep you warn and cosy.

The Whole Family

It’s not just for the women though, there is a wide range of men’s ski jackets to or men’s snowboard jackets to choose from too. As with the women’s collection, there’s a wide variety of styles, colours and designs to choose from so you don’t have to blend in with blacks, you can make a statement and be as bold as you dare. I really love the look of the Parka style jackets for the men as they have a bit more length to them but depending on what you intend to use it for, you might prefer a shorter style.

You really could kit the whole family out for winter with Protest as their children’s collection are just as fun and on trend as the adults. As well as buying fashionable, functional sportswear, you know that you’re going to be warm and dry too.
