A guy from Finland grew up near hard—packed glaciers that were used up after just three turns, and he went on to become one of the strongest riders in the world. With a bag of tricks that delivers everything from park 1260s to backcountry double backflips, Eero Ettala needs warmth without bulk, and waterproofing that won’t make him stew. His choice: the Oakley. Its low—bulk Thinsulate® keeps the tendrils of cold from clawing his body while a 15K/15K combo of breathable waterproofing offers supreme comfort. Magnets hold the open hood out of his way when he’s rotating like a rotor blade, and we gave him adjustable cuffs, wrist gaiters, and a removable storm skirt to defy windchill and frosty crystals. With this much performance, Eero is no longer glacier bound. He’s getting in enough vertical feet to make skydivers jealous. Also available in a printed version.
