Rossignol’s Hit jacket for women has a patented adjustable heating system with four heating panels integrated into the jacket’s lining giving up cozy warmth to make queuing up on the ski-lift more pleasant or at least more comfortable in cold weather.
When you are cold simply turn on the system by pressing the button on the battery which triggers the autonomous system into a 20 minute operating cycle – these cycles can be repeated 6 times per day before the battery has to be recharged.
The Hit Jacket is made of breathable, waterproof stretch material keeping the warmth inside.
