The Swix Cross Jacket is a mid-weight, soft shell hybrid jacket for cross country skiing. Swix’s lightweight, membrane-free softshell panels in the front and on the arms repel wind and water, while maintaining stretch and breathability. Woven stretch panels on the back and under arms wick away sweat and provide a very comfortable fit. Reflective detailing and two zippered hand pockets make it a versatile piece for just about any active winter sport. This jacket fits most men exceedingly well, and is an easy choice for a go-to nordic ski jacket.

For Nordic skiing, the jacket is a very important part of the outfit. While everyone has their own preferences, you will definitely want a jacket that will keep you warm and protect you from the wind and snow, while wicking away sweat and ventilating once your body heat rises. While some jackets are warmer and actually feature some insulation (best if you run cold), and some are feather light (best if you run warm), all of the cross country ski jackets sold at Cross Country Ski Headquarters are designed to perform the main functions that any XC ski jacket should: keep you warm, keep you dry, and keep you comfortable.
