Women’s Ida Jacket - £139.99

CLWR are one of the raddest brands to take on snowboarding outerwear. They are known for their long cut and bold, simple colourways. We are digging this year’s women’s Ida jacket with a dropped tail at the back, giving it a parka style look. Choose grey for understated or purple if you want to stand out.

CLWR also do a men’s jacket - the Base - which is a little pricier but definitely still worth checking out.
