Oakley Anorak Fit Snow Jacket?

Hey guys,

I had a quick question about Oakley snowboarding jackets. Specifically the Oakley Anorak Fit Snow Jacket.

Has anyone used this jacket or think Oakley is a good snowboarding jacket brand? Apparently it's got 10k waterproofing and breathability so it seems legit but I just want to get a second opinion. I couldn't find reviews on it and I'd appreciate some feedback.

Thanks

I can't speak on this specific Oakley jacket but I own and really like my Oakley Sort Lite jacket I bought for a great deal a couple of seasons ago. Solid build quality, good style overall a solid jacket. I actually think it's quality is better than both my previous 686 and Bonfire and definitely better than the Foursquare and Special Blend jackets I've owned. If you found it for a good deal, give it a shot I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Okay thanks a lot for the feedback lisevolution!

I actually found one for a pretty good price.
It's also got 80gram body insulation and 60gram sleeve and hood insulation so It'll probably be pretty warm considering I usually wear under armor under my jacket anyways.

I've always liked Oakley's quality, but I wasn't sure about their snowboarding items besides goggles. I think I'm going to give it a shot
Thanks again man

i have several of their jackets / coats / pants. Excellent quality, design & warmth, would recommend. Also technical & function factor on the higher end oak stuff is really good, from magnetic closures to pockets located in perfect spots for gear like a helmet cam recorder.
