The Oakley Stillwell is a solid shell for casual to experienced skiers. They had decent waterproofing and breathability in a simple deign. They are comfortable and will provide the casual skier with more than enough features to enjoy a day on the slopes.
Oakley Stillwell Ski Pant Review
Pant Size: S
Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info
Waterproofing and Breathability: The Oakley Stillwell has a 15k/15k waterproof and breathable layer. While this isn’t great, it is better than most entry level waterproof layers, and will provide decent protection in all but the wettest conditions. Breathability was okay, and would be fine for active resort skiers who don’t often have to boot pack or hike to their favorite runs.
Fit: I have found with most Oakley pants, the fit is a bit tighter in the upper thighs. The Oakley Stillwell is no exception. However, the pant isn’t super tight and they still feel roomy enough throughout the rest of the pant. In addition, the pockets are placed in a location that still makes them useable. I could see some people wanting to size up for a better fit in the thighs, but I actually didn’t mind the tighter fit since the rest of the pant was very comfortable and useable even with the tighter fit.
Warmth: The Oakley Stillwell is a shell, but does have a soft liner that provides a touch of warmth. This would almost be the perfect weight for me since I run warm and ski in a milder climate most often. Those who run cold will find these warmer than an average shell, but probably still too cold for any colder days.
Features: The Oakley Stilwell is a pretty basin pant, but has all the features a casual skier will need to hit the slopes. It does have abrasion resistant material around the ankle to prevent damage from your boots. The pant also has inner thigh vents for air movement, and a built in belt for tightening around the waist.
