Oakley Shelf Life 2013 Review by A Better Ski

The Oakley Shelf Life is a good entry level pant with a better fit than a lot of the other Oakley pants. There’s nothing really special about this pant, but would be an okay option for those on a budget or those who don’t need a whole lot out of their pants.

Oakley Shelf Life Ski Pant Review

Tester: Matt

Pant Size: S

Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info

Waterproofing and Breathability: The Oakley Shelf Life is a pretty basic pant with very minimal waterproofing and breathability. These would be okay for those who never really see wet weather or for those on a pretty tight budget.

Fit: The Oakley Shelf Life has a relaxed fit that would be a good for freestyle skiers. Many of the Oakley pants that I have tested have been tight in the mid waist section. These pants fit much better in the waist and thighs, but are also a bit looser in the legs. These would be an okay option for those with larger legs, or for those who want the extra room.

Warmth: The Oakley Shelf Life is a basic shell without insulation. These won’t be great for those who ski in cold weather consistently, or for those who naturally run cold. These would be good for those who run warm, or for the warmer spring days when the chill is gone.

Features: The Oakley Shelf Life is a pretty basic pant and don’t have a whole lot of exciting features. These were not one of our favorite pants, and would really only be okay for skiers who only get out once or twice a season.
