Every one needs a hoody for layering and keeping cosy in resort. So what features does AfterJam's Big Red Riding Hood have?

AfterJam’s latest release is a more technical option than their other products and has a whole host of features to make your day on the slopes comfortable. These hoodies are nice and thick, with a decent weight. You might think you need a thin hoody for layering, but if you are replacing a fleece, you should make sure it is thick. This hoody’s 410gsm 65/35 polycotton construction means you’ll keep cosy both on the snow and dedix, so you can focus on your technique instead of the temperature. The DWR (durable water repellent) coating means the hood is better equipped than most at protecting you from snowy weather.

A lot of people worry about losing their valuables if they wear hoodies out on the mountain. Luckily, the Big Red Riding Hood has zips to keep your gadgets safe and the kangaroo pocket is also waterproof with an extra hidden pouch. That’s a pocket inside a pocket!

There are lots of really handy little features such as reinforced thumb holes to keep your hands warm, earphone holders at the neckline and four air vents under ear arm to minimise heat retention. You can tighten the waistband to stop snow getting in and the neck and waist ties both come with signature AfterJam branding.

Pros: Stylish and comfortable with lots of handy features

Cons: Tall style won’t be everyone’s cup of tea
