Oakley Regiment Ski Jacket Review
Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info
Waterproofing and Breathability: The Oakley Regiment has a 10k Hydrogauge laminate for waterproof protection. 10k is just at the industry standard for waterproofing and typical of the lower end jackets. It’s definitely not bad, especially for the casual skier, but this won’t be great in really wet locations. For those who ski mainly in dryer conditions and may occasionally see a bit of light snow, the Regiment will be just fine.
Warmth: The Oakley Regiment is a shell without insulation. It’s not a very warm jacket, but would be great for those who ski consistently in milder conditions. There is plenty of room for layering underneath if you need to.
Fit: The Oakley Regiment has an extra-long length. I really like how low the jacket sits, but it can feel slightly restricting to some skiers. The jacket is relatively tight overall, and the extra length can make it feel really tight in the waist. Although it was slightly tight, I found the fit to be really comfortable. I think those looking for an extra-long form fitting jacket will like the fit of the Regiment.
Features: The Oakley Regiment is a standard entry level shell without a whole lot of technical features. It does have a contoured hood, removable powder skirt, and plenty of pockets to go along with its entry level waterproofing and breathability. I think the biggest draw to the Regiment will be the extra length. It’s a comfortable and functional ski jacket, but with a look that will be relatively unique.
