Hood doesn't feel quite generous enough

In this review, we’re checking out the Yeh Man jacket from the original onesie brand, known for its bright retro colour patterns. OOSC has really upped its game with this ski jacket, giving it a top spec that should satisfy the most demanding skiers and snowboarders. 

With waterproofing and breathability ratings of 20K/20K the Yeh Man jacket rivals some of the best jackets out there. Most middling ski jackets typically sport around 10K/10K for waterproofing and breathability, performing perfectly well for general skiing and snowboarding duties. But at 20K/20K you can be sure that this material will weather the worst storms. This is backed up by critically taped seams and waterproof coatings over any exposed zips. 

Breathability from the material is great, and you really feel that when you’re hitting it hard on the slopes. 80g of synthetic insulation takes the edge off frigid days and helps regulate your temperature. Of course, as with any ski jacket, at some point - probably on an unseasonably warm day - you’re going to start overheating and the Yeh Man jacket has underarm pit vents to help you release that excess heat. The vents are also mesh-lined, which helps to stop snow from getting inside the jacket when open. 

The main zip of the jacket sits underneath a storm flap, this fits perfectly with the overall aesthetic of the Yeh Man jacket. The storm flap is held down by a series of magnets allowing it to snap firmly into place. This is also the case with the hand pockets which have storm flaps with magnetized closures, as well as zips to make sure nothing can fall out. The hand pockets have a soft touch fleece liner for comforting warmth, as well as toggle pullers for waistband adjustment. These are super easy to use, with a yank on the elasticated wires bringing the bottom of the jacket in tight to your body. A small chest pocket just about holds a smartphone, you can also opt to use the internal zipped pocket which has a headphone loop. A handy lift pass pocket on the left arm ensures that you can make your way through the lift gates quickly.

All zips on the Yeh Man jacket have chunky leatherette pullers that are easy to grab with gloved hands. The comfortable hood is 3-way adjustable with just enough coverage over the head, and the snow skirt successfully keeps powder at bay. This is also removable, an excellent feature that means you can comfortably wear the Yeh Man jacket outside the ski season. Inside, there's also a mesh dump pocket, perfect for goggles or gloves. OOSC has gone to the bother of putting a microfiber goggle wipe on an elastic lanyard inside this pocket, and it's these kinds of details we love to see in a ski jacket.

The outer material is really soft and smooth for a fully waterproof ski jacket and is generally super comfortable to wear. There's plenty of space inside the jacket for layering and freedom of movement, and there’s good coverage over the bum and the wrists. 

We really like the little pops of colour on an otherwise fairly plain jacket. It's the kind of jacket you wear if you've got a cheeky little extroverted side to you that enjoys a bit of fun.

In terms of Environmental credentials, the Yeh Man jacket does a good job, being made from 100% recycled sea waste. This approach to manufacturing helps remove waste from the oceans while also removing the need to put new raw materials into the environment. 

Overall, it's clear that this jacket was conceived by die-hard skiers. It's often the little details that count, and OOSC has done an amazing job. They're one of the hottest up-and-coming brands out there, and we think they'll stay the course. It's great to see that the Yeh Man jacket is available at an accessible price point of £295 too, considering some of the eye-watering price tags you see from competing brands.
