Versatility is the name of the game when it comes to the Oakley Men’s Unification Polartec Power Dry Jacket. I test mounds of gear each season, but only a very few select pieces make it into my personal gear arsenal. This Unification Power Dry Jacket is one of those special pieces.
I absolutely love this little mid-layer/jacket. How often do you find a piece of ski gear that’s a workhorse mid-layer (anti-microbial - I love that it doesn’t smell after big days, it’s breathable, moisture wicking and fast drying), that also works as a layering piece in the fall for hiking, a standalone jacket on a cool summer night and just an all-around performer? Not often, if you ask me.
The Polartec Power Stretch material utilized in this Unification jacket does everything that’s promised performance-wise, and the extra stretch and comfort is unparalleled. The 3-zippered pockets (chest and hand) also make it a great hanging out jacket after a big day on the hill and the cuffs with thumb holes always keep things secure. The Unification Power Dry Jacket far exceeded my expectations and will be going on all of my ski trips this season. At $140, you can’t go wrong.
