Oakley Task Force 2015 Review by A Better Ski

The Oakley Task Force pant is a good pant for casual skiers in colder climates. It has entry level waterproofing with a Hydrogauge 10 laminate, but do offer solid warmth with 60g of Thinsulate insulation. These are a great pant for those on a budget, or for those who may only ski several times a year.

Oakley Task Force In-Studio Pant Review

Tester: Matt

Pant Size: S

Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info

Waterproofing and Breathability: The Oakley Task Force has a 10k Hydrogauge laminate that offers industry standard waterproofing. This is okay for skiers in drier climates, or for those who may only ski a few times a year and don’t need the best of the best. The Hydrogauge laminate is also moderately breathable. Again it’s okay for the casual skier that may not work quite as hard on the mountain.

Fit: The Oakley Task Force has a loose fit, but I don’t feel it’s completely true to size. I found that almost all Oakley pants fit very tight across the mid-waist area where the hand pockets usually sit. I didn’t find the Task Force the tightest of the Oakley pants, but it does make me question sizing up. If you have smaller thighs this may not be an issue, but with my larger legs the fit just didn’t work well. I couldn’t really use the front pockets, and it is really tight when I bend over at all.

Warmth: The Oakley Task Force does have 60g of insulation. I found these to be really warm pants, and for me it would be overkill for all but the coldest days. This would be a good pant for those who always ski in cold climates, or for those who may run a bit colder.

Features: The Oakley Task Force is a pretty standard insulated pant. It would make a good choice for budget minded skiers, or for those who only ski a few times a year. They do run small, so would work better for those with smaller legs. Those with larger legs should consider sizing up.
