Our Verdict

When is a ski jacket not a ski jacket? When it’s Oneskee’s all-in-one snow sports suit, designed to keep you warm and dry. If you want to go back to separates, you can just zip the legs off the Acclimate. Clever stuff.

For

  • Swap from a jacket to a ski onesie
  • Regular/long sizes available for tall women

Against

  • The baggy fit may not suit petite skiers

Oneskee Acclimate: first impressions

The Oneskee Acclimate could be an answer to a dilemma you didn’t know you had. Why faff about buying a ski jacket and separate salopettes when you could just snap up a onesie with a detachable legs? 

If you get cold on the snow, want to get save time sorting your kit or if you just have a tendency to fall over a lot, Oneskee’s range of ski outfits could be your perfect ski partner. 

Oneskee’s unisex Acclimate design comes in a range of colorways ranging from camouflage and leopard print to plain neutral suits, and they all feature a great hood, wide, comfortable salopette legs, plentiful well-placed pockets and are waterproofed to a hefty 20,000mm. 

And if you want to swap to separates or to wear your Oneskee with jeans for apres ski, then a zip around the waist means you can lose the legs when you need to. 

A great gimmick but how did they fare when we tested them for our best women’s ski jackets buying guide?

Oneskee Acclimate: on the slopes

On test we were impressed by how well the Acclimate worked both as a one-piece and as a jacket – as a ski suit, they definitely provide more warmth than as separates, and there’s no risk of ending up with snow stuffed up your jacket if you do take a fall. 

It’s easy to zip off the legs and then you have a fully functioning waterproof jacket – ideal for warm spring skiing, when you might want to pair it with a lighter pair of salopettes. 

The Oneskee is a unisex design and fits on the wide and baggy side, so you may need to try a few versions for size, and petite skiers could feel a bit swamped and may want to choose something more streamlined (although tall women will find the “regular” and “long” sizing on offer could be ideal for them).
