The 686 Plexus Oasis Softshell Snowboard Jacket is a very functional jacket that can be used whether you ski or prefer to snowboard. A nice feature of the Plexus Oasis Softshell is that the shell is both warm and breathable which is important because it helps you not get wet and chilled from sweat. The 686 Plexus Oasis jacket is lightweight which makes all the difference in allowing you to maneuver and it also comes equipped with a good sized hood that you can put up in snow or just for extra warmth. You will appreciate the fact that this jacket comes with pockets to hold your personal items while on the slopes.
Plexus Oasis Softshell
Bought this jacket by accident, but it kept me surpisingly warm even when I wore this jacket to Japan which was -11, only had to wear my thermals and a tshirt underneath. Loved that the sleeves had thumb holes to thread my gloves through, the fit was just right. My only gripe was that the length of the jacket was a bit short.
This jacket is just what I was looking for, it's nice and light but at the same time it keeps you warm and dry as you shred. I wouldn't really recommend it for beginners due to the lack of snow skirt but all in all it is a really great jacket and my friends were green with jealous rage when they saw it. ;)
This jacket was the perfect buy for me. Its fit me perfectly and allows for movement. Couldn't be happier. Can't go wrong with this one.
If you're looking for the perfect softshell that will see you through those warm winter days, or a sudden snow storm during the spring season, then this jacket is the one to get. I bought it as an alternative to my fully-insulated snowboarding jacket, and found myself rarely wearing anything else. Beyond the design of the jacket, which is one of my favorites, the 686 Plexus Oasis is surprisingly warm for a softshell, very comfortable and a great fit for women. Further, the elastic waistband ensures that little snow gets in, even without the ziplock technology that many jackets now come with. The two difficulties I had with this jacket are firstly that it doesn't come with quite enough pockets (the two on the front aren't the best for storing things in), and on a heavy powder day you may find snow getting into the gap between your jacket and pants. That said, extra pockets and powder skirts aren't something one can expect from a basic softshell. So, all in all, this is the happiest I've ever been with a jacket and I definitely recommend it to others.
Very cool colors! Warm jacket for a cooler day and can easily be paired with a hoodie to make even warmer. Perfect as an overcoat when it's raining!
Let me start off saying my friend who I bought this for is 5'10 so taller than the average girl, but still quite skinny. Thus, this jacket came up in the back a bit if she bent over allowing snow to get in. The cloth trim around the wrists and bottom are not the best for a wet environment, and I expected the jacket to be a bit thicker and water-proofy than it is. This seems like more of a warmer weather jacket for if you're not going to be rolling around in snow all day. Otherwise, it looks awesome, is great for walking around town and causal stuff!
I love this jacket. As soon as I saw it, I had to have it!! When it finally arrived, I was not disappointed. So cute and completely functional.
I got this for my wife because she was eye balling my softshell. She loves this and wants to wear it around when we are not even in the snow. Great for warmer, sunny days or just playing in the snow for a few hours.
I fell in love with this jacket at first sight. The design is great. I originally wanted the gunmetal color but it wouldnt match my gear. I got the lime color and I like it even more. It kind up rides up in the back but not a deal breaker.
Definitely a cute jacket. It's light, warm and waterproof. I wear it regularly in about 40 degree weather with just an under armour or hoodie underneath and I'm perfectly warm.
I bought the full out jacket, but wish I had nabbed this too during that sick sale last year. Have never owned a soft shell but looks like a good thing to have.
Its is a great jacket, but for me, the fit was too small...... sleeves a little short and the length gave me problems..... but overall, it is actually a great jackets.... just make sure you buy it 1 size larger than what you usually would...
If you're a beginner you may want a jacket with a powder skirt underneath. This jacket has a tendency to ride up if you fall. Great waterproof jacket if you need one for winter! Overall it's an impressive jacket, you will love it!!
I got this jacket when it was on 70% off, and I'm very happy with it. The Good: -Really cool colors/pattern (I got mine in Gunmetal; I was really attracted to it the 1st time I saw it on this website) -Light weight and water proof. Even with the light/thin material, the jacker kept me warm, and the water out, even on a day when it was snowing non-stop. My inner layers were only a tshirt+thermal. -No powder skit though, but I wasn't expecting that given the price and it's a basic jacket. -Kept the snow out pretty good even when I was falling over A LOT (first time snowboarding so I was falling down all day). The-not-so-good: -Not a big fan of the thumb hole design. Initially I thought it looked really cool when I first tried on the jacket. But after a day on the mountain testing the jacket, I found out that the thumb hole was cutting the skin around my thumb, as material of that part of the sleeve is not very soft and is quite rough. I had a red imprint around both my thumbs (and it hurt). -I would like to have some more inner pockets. There is only one clear pocket inside the jacket for your ipod+bank cards. -The hoodie; had to keep re-adjusting because it fell off quite a bit due to no cords to tighten it (theres a cord right at the middle of the hoodie but it dosen't really help; would prefer cords on the side/or strips on the side to stick together) Overall I'm really enjoying this jacket. I'm only a beginner at the snows so I don't need a super pro jacket. I was warm; kept dry; and the price for the jacket was great. Thumbs up!
This jacket is super light and warm. Even though it's so thin I didn't need to wear very much inside. It is very water proof even when boarding in the rain. I own the green/blue one and I really stand out from the others which is very helpful seeing as though I am a beginner. The holes for the fingers in the sleeve are a bit too high, but it doesn't really bother me as I usually tuck my sleeves into my gloves/mittens. I have long arms, so would have preferred to get a M instead of a S. But I think that is just my personal preference.
I purchased L size for good length in arms and torso, and found that they were ok, not perfect but definitely not too short and the torso a little big. Overall though a good jacket, nice and warm, good insulation with room for more layers underneath if needed and great colours :-)
I love the colors of this jacket. I got the blue one. I love the fit it feels great on love the warm inside over all great jacket.
This jacket is so cute. I purchased it in Orchid and couldn't be happier. I'm 5'7 and 140lbs, it fit perfectly. The arms are long enough so range of motion won't be lost or uncomfortable. The features and pockets are great. You can just tell this jacket is durable and will offer plenty of protection from the winds. The jacket as noted in other reviews does feel somewhat like a new shower curtain, but this will probably lessen with further wear and tear. I'm so happy with my purchase and will definitely be ordering more of 686.
Jacket is perfect. Fit is great to layer underneath, but not too baggy when the weather gets warmer.
I bought this jacket for my girlfriend so that she would go to the mountain with me, and she loves it! It looks great, and she says it's the warmest jacket that she's ever worn. It has a lot of pockets, and she loves the design of the lime color. Great jacket, great buy!
GREAT!!!! Just what I was looking for. Its so warm and comfortable, and still can move around in it as it's not too tight, just perfect.
If you are a size S definitely buy a S, I bought a M because I went by the measurements of the site and I was wrong. The jacket otherwise looks really really awesome on the mountain, and it's easy for people to spot you out in the crowd. I've gotten quite a few comments already about it and I only started wearing it last week. Only problem about the jacket is that it is only a shell so you definitely have to wear a fleece jacket underneath as well as your usual thermal layering.
Bought this for my wife and it seemed quite thin at first (the fleece layer) seems to handle well in cool temps but haven't tried really cold temps yet. With some thermals underneath this is a nice combo jacket to keep you warm and dry. Overall a nice soft shell jacket.
Brought this for my Gf and it is the perfect fit. (Xs size) The sleeves are the right length and it fits tight.
Shell jacket. My partner wears it as a casual winter jacket. The first impression - the jackets feels a little too stiff. The jacket is classical snowboard fit - baggy, size Small fits as Normal Medium. Does not have a snow skirt (which could be an advantage if you intend to use as a winter jacket). Has normal stuff - zip arm pit vents, inside left upper pocket with a smaller pocket for a lift pass. Two zip outside lower pockets. Hood adjustment. Again JUST A SHELL - if wearing for snow extra layer are a must to stay warm. Waterproofing is with no complaints.
The jacket was perfect and I was very happy with the fit. It's not as bulky as some, and nicely slim fitting but doesn't impact on movement. The wind/water protection was great, but you need to wear a fleece underneath in colder conditions. Really happy with this buy and it turned up exactly as shown in the picture.
This jacket is so cute and I was really surpised how warm it was. I only got to wear it once though until my sister stole it. I was very surprised that it actually fit me though. I'm normally an xxs (and would sometimes fit in an xs) but this fit me prefectly. All my jackets look like dresses on me since I'm so tiny but this one is just right.
I'm absolutely in love with this jacket :) Reading other reviews I expected it to be stiffer, but the fabric is just great. The pockets have interesting features, like little holes for the headphones and a hook for the pass. The liner is soft and warm. The arms are perfect for me, a bit tight once I use the thumbholes, but not uncomfortable. I'll be wearing this in and off the mountain! Overall, best purchase I've done this year!
Bought this jacket online from Oz when it was 70% off, got here in 5 days! I'm fairly short (5'2) so this jacket is quite long on me, though I prefer longer jackets so wind etc can't come in. It's very lightweight compared to other jackets I've tried though still really warm. Colour is awesome, and I find the sleeves are a perfect fit on me. The only problems I have with it is no skirt (I'm a beginner and expect to spend a lot of time falling at the moment), and I have a fairly large chest so I had to size up-it's pretty baggy around tummy but snug up top, should give a pretty good idea on the fit. Jacket is awesome quality for the price, very impressed and have recommended to other friends!!
Great jacket, looks great, plenty of room in the body and arms. Really warm cause its wind and waterproof. LOVE IT!
Jacket is good when I was moving, but I got a bit cold on the lifts since it was only a shell - I wore it in Australian off peak season so weather was still pretty warm and sunny. I was impressed that the hood fit comfortably over my helmet, didn't obscure my view either. I'm a really short girl, my arms aren't very long, but the sleeves seemed too short to use the thumb holes. I got the gunmetal/pink/red colour, which stand out really well on the slopes.
I got this for my sis on the staff picks for $50. It was a great price! She loves it. Wears it as a normal jacket, but seems warm enough with some layering as a snow jacket as well!
This jacket is lightweight and the colours make it easy for me to be found by friends on the snow field.
This jacket, hands down is the best that I've owned - it's like it was tailor made to my measurements! I am a petite girl and the sleeves on adult jacket are ALWAYS at least a couple of inches too long. The sleeves were perfect for me with the XS and the thumb holes in the right spot too. I also love that the jacket has a shapely fit, and not baggy like the majority of snow jackets on the market. Plenty of pockets and really useful armpit vents to stop you overheating.
I bought this jacket for my gf in the orchid color, she likes it a lot. She is very skinny/small so I bought the XS, I was a bit worried the arms may be too short because she bought a special blend jacket in XS and the arm length felt a little short. This jacket fits perfectly though, so unless you have super long arms your size should fit. The jacket itself seems like it may be short but for an averaged length torso you'd definitely be able to pull the bottom band over your pants or bend over without the jacket riding up. My gf says she would want to use this as an everyday jacket and even wants to get the gunmetal color now. I am very pleased with this purchase. I wish they had more available colors in the guy version.
I would have loved to own this jacket. I bought it for $48 (70% off). By the time I received the jacket, the price went back up to $80. The store and website do not offer exchanges (I tried both). I was unable to obtain the correct size. I'm pretty disappointed with my experience.
I really like this jacket. With the price offered here. It's perfect! I've always liked colorful jackets, so if you like colors. This has your name all over it!
I loooove this jacket! it really stands out from any other I've seen on the mountain. I was surprised how warm it was. The first time I went out with it I layered up heaps, but got really warm really quickly. It breathes quite well too, despite the thickness of the shell. A little loud (crinkles when you move) though... no big deal I guess.
I bought this jacket so that I could wear it out in winter in Australia! I love it, it's great because you won't look a fool wearing a snow jacket thats heavy! This one is really light and really warm too! :D Very happy with my purchase! It's a little bit too big but thats okay, plenty of room to layer up if necessary!
I got this jacket in Gunmetal. The red is brighter than shown on the pictures so it looks great. I match this with my Red AK static pants or my Blue AK pants. It looks great. Probably goes with any colour. The fleece inside is very comfy and like other guys who reviewed this, I find this a little bit stiff. It will do the job in spring but probably need to layer up for the colder days. The thumb holes are going to annoying tho cause I wont be able to use them and my gloves wont be able to cover them.... can just see the snow trapping inside them...... great, cold wrists! Overall its a great jacket. Got this on 70% off so its worth it!
Got this for my wife. Going with the other reviews, I sized up on the jacket (she normally wears M but i got her a L). Fit is baggy and comfy but not overly baggy. If I got a M it would've fit too but more like a regular hoody and not an outerwear garment. So I am glad I upsized. The only downside is that the jacket is just a jacket (meaning no powder skirt, no little extras like other jackets, etc). I got my wife this jacket and the other Plexus jacket and she loves 'em both so we're keeping both.
Bought this for my girlfriend while it was 70% off. Yhe jacket looks better than in the pics. It also provides 10K/10K which is better than her shell. Very happy.
My girlfriend likes this jacket. It really fits on her almost perfectly. The color matches her session pants.
I like this jacket; it's fitted which I adore. I am not too much into the baggy look. Although, it's fitted, I can still wear one or two layers underneath.
The previous reviews I read were very helpful. If you're tall or want a baggier fit, go a size up. I'm short (5'1) so the sleeves were at the right length, but I'm used to having longer sleeves. The jacket will feel stiff at first, but will soften up.
I accidentally ordered the Medium after reading reviews that it was a snug fit, but I am actually really pleased with the fit of the Medium, it's perfect! Very flattering, doesn't ride up when you take a spill either. I am a pretty average build, not super skinny or busty, so I think this should be an accurate assessment. It has a thin layer of lining. I stayed dry and warm the whole time. The pit vents are appreciated too. Overall, I love this jacket!
When I first tried on this jacket I thought that it was a bit too small but then realized that it was just right. It is soft on the inside and will definitely keep you warm when you are not riding the mountain. I would say this is a good jacket to wear everyday. The only thing is that it is a little stiff, but I'm sure once you wear it a few times this will go away just like other clothes.
