Ever heard of an Icelandic shredder and all-around slayer by the name of Eiki Helgason? The Oakley Men's Performe Jacket is his Pro Rider Series signature jacket, and it's outfitted for dropping the hammer anywhere on the mountain. Iceland can get downright freezing, so Eiki added panels of Thinsulate insulation to critical areas in the chest. Underarm zips help you regulate temperature so long hikes won't turn things all sweat-shop, and an asymmetrical main zipper gives you the option to vent out some heat at the waist or neck. Brush your shoulders off when a ferocious storm rolls in, because the Performe boasts waterproof-and-breathable fabric with fully taped seams so you stay dry as a bone.
- 60g Thinsulate insulation panels built into the chest help trap your core heat so you won't have to head inside with all the six-year-olds on a cold day
- Magnetic hold-down system keeps your hood from flipping over your eyes when you
- decide to get wicked in the park, pipe, or backcountry
- Adjustable cuffs with wrist gaiters keep snow from creeping into your sleeves, down your arms, and eventually causing swampyness inside your threads

My son loves the look, I love the warmth. The XL to me fit him large but he's 15 and that's how they like it.
Most stylish coat on the mountain, I've gotten tons of compliments on it... It's thin but still plenty warm, even on 5 degree days I have had the armpit zippers open. Plenty of pockets, and I'm finding I like the off-center zipper quite a bit, I wasn't expecting to like it. Worth every penny.
This is without a doubt one of the highest quality jackets i've ever bought. There is so much piecing on it, the purple and white looks soo nasty. with the 15k breath, and waterproof rating, how can you go wrong?
There are so many pockets it's awesome!60g thinsulate keeps you warm. There are some very nice spandex gaiters to put your hands through for maximum snow protection on the hand area. haha.. there's also an integrated powder skirt to latch into the pants (night be a zipper, but you get the point) It's got rubber on the inside of it like how some goggles have, so you don't have snow coming in when your shredding the gnarly pow. There's so many features the list could go on, and on!
I would definately recommend this to a friend, but I wont because nobody likes having the same jacket as someone else. :)
