Snowboard jackets come in all shapes and styles, when it comes to fit it’s all based on preference… How much flexibility do you like? Do you prefer something that hugs you or that you can add layers underneath? What’s the look you’re going for… relaxed or fitted?
The DC Riji Jacket provides a relaxed look with a bit more fitted shoulder. It fits on the looser side, making it easy to move in and leaves room to add layers underneath.
What size should I purchase?
If you normally wear a medium jacket and like the relaxed look, purchase a medium.

The Women’s DC Riji Jacket is pretty versatile when it comes to warmth. At 10k, it’s not a really warm jacket, however you can add an a Base Layer, Fleece Jacket, or both underneath to help keep you warm when the storm rolls in. 80g of insulation makes it light enough to wear over a T-shirt on those warm bluebird days, plus you can open up the arm vents and let the breeze in!
This snowboard jacket can also function as a regular cold-weather jacket. The extra length helps to keep you legs warm, while the wrist gaiters keep the breeze from riding up the sleeves.
- Internal media cord routing
- Zip-up hand warmer pockets
- Zip-up chest pockets (2)
- Zip-up sleeve pass pocket

Storage on the mountain is always a rough one for women. If you enjoy a more fitted pant, there isn’t much room to store googles, neck warmer, credit cards, keys, lip balm.. you know the essentials! To make matters worse pockets on fitted pants aren’t exactly easy to access, it takes you 5 min just to get your gloves off and lift all of the layers to even reach the pocket, let alone unzip and reach inside!
The DC Riji jacket has pockets for all of this and more! You could even say this snowboard jacket reduces that small amount of stress so you can enjoy your day and focus on the fun! As well, each zipper features a large pull making them easy to use with gloves on.
- Taped seams
- Fixed waist gaiter
- 2-way adjustable hood
- Lycra® cuff gaiters
Overall if you are looking for a versatile jacket that you can wear all season, in all weather conditions… The Riji Snowboard Jacket by DC is the JACKET FOR YOU!
