Outerwear Preferences...

Just curious what you guys prefer for outerwear...brands, types. Quiksilver has always worked for me, TRice line is always top notch and anything GoreTex is A-game. DC and Volcom are good stuff...I like DC's jackets, but not their pants and I like Volcom's pants, but not their jackets. Burton is okay, Their AK Gore line is good stuff. Just interested in everybody else's interests.

I'm a big fan of oakley gear. You can pick up some pretty good tech gear on OakleyVault for pretty cheap.

Oakley Sunglasses, Oakley Goggles, and Apparel - Oakley Vault

I've also rode with some 686 gear with no issues.

Have you worn much Oakley? I'm thinking about the crowbar but reading mixed reviews about nose discomfort.

All personal preference, all I wear are Crowbars and I love them. I've got like 4-5 different pairs.

As for outerwear, ANALOG, all day. Some of the higher-end AK pieces are appealing to me as well, but I don't need that level of tech in my outerwear.

yeah I wear Oakley goggles and outerwear. I've had good luck with both pants and jacket from Oakley, two seasons with 30 days each and no tears or loose seams.

Good pockets and media storage options too, good fit. I haven't had any issues honestly.

I have Quicksilver, Analog, O'Neil x2, Oakley, and DC jackets.... But i also have and swear by SweetProtection....!!!

I love the sweet for the colder weather, but the TailGunner jacket i have is a little heavy and not really good once it gets as warm as -5... When it gets down past -10 i use more layers rather than this jacket so i can remove as needed... And really love the O'Neils when it gets there...

Trousers i only wear Burton Cargo pants, as they fit me without me walking on the bottoms so much, and the pockets work for me as well, as i don't like stuff in jacket pockets, easy to fall on and damage, less so on the outside of you leg by your knee... Haha

I've worn a Grenade jacket for the last 4 seasons. The thing is still solid. I go through pants quite a bit. They just get shredded after a hard season of riding and hiking rails. Of those that have impressed me most with quality have been the Special Blend Toofer and Nomis Simon Cargo.

Volcom all the way... Their goretex pants are amazing. I have a Quicksilver jacket I like but its a little lighter (10k) and I have a Billabong jacket that I use for deep powder days (15k).

I had a pair of crowbars but sold them on eBay. I had issues with them fogging, which I think was a fit issue for me. And I've never really been a big fan of the thick foam layer that is on Oakley goggles. Just my preference...I've got multiple pairs of Quik Hubbles and love 'em. They sit closer to my face and the peripheral vision is unreal. The versatility of switching different lenses on Oakleys is a plus though.
