You could be sitting on the chairlift with heavy snowfall dumping on top of you, or you could be gazing across the bluebird sky in search for spring's final powder stash, and the Haglöfs Women's Khione Jacket would still be choice. Its Gore-Tex membrane offers the waterproof protection and breathable comfort that both climates call for. Fully taped seams enhance the Khione's waterproofing by preventing a single snowflake from seeping through.
Haglöfs equipped the Khione Jacket with zippers under each arm to enhance ventilation and cool you down if you get too warm. The powder skirt protects you from unwanted snow sneaking in, and it zips away when spring skiing calls for laying railroad tracks on fresh groomers all day. Alternatively, adjustments at the hem, cuffs, and helmet-compatible hood seal out the snowiest weather.

Love at First Sight
- Size Bought: medium
- Height: 5'8"
- Weight: 135lbs
So, I just got to demo this jacket, but I did love it completely. It has everything you want. Pit Zips, pass pocket, and breathes well. I get hot easily, so it's important to me that it breathes.
The fit is also important to me. This is a regular fit. It's closer to a tradition ski jacket than an oversized snowboard jacket, without being to short and restrictive. So, it's pretty much perfect, unless you want an oversized jacket.
I am definitely a medium and that was the right size with this jacket. I also got the pants in medium, which we don't currently have on the site. I reeeeally liked the fit of the pants. The were flattering while still moving well.
First Snowboarding Jacket
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: small
- Height: 5'2"

So, I went snowboarding for the first time. It snowed like crazy and I survived thanks to this jacket. I obviously layered underneath it but it really saved me from getting wet. There's nice cuffs at the sleeves that secured my gloves in place. Also, the pockets are so incredibly designed. Everything from being functional to being easy to use. I knew my phone, keys, and liners were safe in the outside pockets. Thank you Gore-tex for keeping me dry & Haglofs for being so brilliant!
I'm 5'2 a little over 125 pounds and fit the small!

This jacket is awesome! It is super breathable, has vents in all the right places and large pockets throughout. I am IN LOVE with this shell! It's water-proof, wind resistant and comfortable. It is long enough and spacious enough (I got a medium to leave room for extra layers) to include the Essens Down Jacket underneath for extra warmth when it's time to get off the skin track and make your way down-hill. I LOVE THIS JACKET! Perfect shell for wherever your adventure takes you. I also appreciate that I can fit my helmet under the hood! If you are looking for the best shell on the market this is it ladies. I cannot tell you how amazing all the HaglÃ¶fs gear is!
