Question Oakley outerwear directed to skiers?

Is Oakley Outerwear directed more to skiers or do snowboarders wear it too?

Eero Ettala has a signature outerwear line this year from Oakley if that means anything. So yes, snowboarders do wear it

Gretchen Bleiler also has a signature line with Oakley. If anything Spyder is more geared towards skiiers.

Take yourself to higher places.

Oakley's outerwear is directed towards both skiers and snowboarders. They have a ski and snowboard team. They do seem to emphasize snowboarding more though as I do not see them advertising any signature skier goggles.

They have the Tanner Hall signature series and the Seth Morrison Sig series goggles, and when on the website looking through their outerwear alot of their stuff says "with the help of tanner hall or seth morrison. I did see a couple of pieces that were "with the help of" snowboarder such as Eero as snowboarding101 had mentioned. and the fit doesn't look as loose as the snowboarding apparel out there now.

That's true, I do see Tanner Hall a lot. I was referring to how they advertise Simon Dumont and especially Shaun White. Even their backend training site (for us retail employees), has a Shaun White video introducing some stuff.

As for the apparel being more fitted, I am seeing more and more snowboard apparel coming out in more fitted styles. I think that has more to do with the growing popularity of snowboarding amongst all ages than anything else.

I rocked an Oakley extraction jacket last year. Most, if not all, Oakley jackets have wrist gaiters. Nice feature that really keeps the snow out.
