Lib Tech/Oakley Outerwear Durability ?

I saw a jacket that I liked online and it happened to be a Lib Tech Recycler, I've never heard anything about their outerwear so I am just seeing if perhaps any of you have and could attest to their durability.

I also saw some pants that I also liked on OakelyVault, should I be wary of Oakley outerwear as well?

Thanks guys!

My daughter has a few pieces of Oakley outerwear, it's all quality stuff and she's been very pleased.

Oakley outerwear is pretty bomber, I've got a number of jackets and gloves that are holding up well

Appreciate it, I thought I had read something about the Oakley pants ripping, but first hand knowledge from people is always the best. Thanks

I have had the same pair of Oakley pants for about 4 seasons now, and they seem bulletproof to me. The only thing thats happened to them is a one of the back pocket snap buttons came out.

I've got a pair of insulated Oakley pants. They're pretty warm in weather as low as -15C, and they shed heat well considering how warm they are. Waterproofing is great for general riding, but they get a little damp if I'm camping in the back country or spending significant hours in knee-deep+ powder. Build quality is pretty tight so far, it's my first season in them so I can't quite say bomb-proof but I'm sure I've grazed a few trees with them.

Best part was I got 'em for about 100 USD on SAC
