Off the hill, Pettit’s got a penchant for Oakley’s retro, far-out shades, but on the slopes, he likes to keep things simple with the Ridge Line. The classic frame style, XL cylindrical lens, and helmet-compatible flat brow make this goggle a top choice for hard-chargers who like to fly under the radar. The price point is another attractive element of this goggle — it’s ideal for riders looking to score Oakley’s premium optics at a welcome price.
On the outerwear front, Pettit’s rocking the Oakley Evocative Shell. The choice is unsurprising — the purple and black pattern with the grey stripe might be old-school in form, but the three-layer shell is modern in function. It boasts an FN Dry 20K laminate membrane that’s treated with a Durable Water Repellant (DWR), which provides an excellent balance of waterproofing and breathability. The nylon face fabric is also coated with a DWR treatment and mechanically stretched so you can contort into whatever yoga-like tweaks you desire.
“Pettit’s certainly not the best snowboarder in Oakley’s stacked lineup of riders — no one’s arguing that — but his late-to-the-party, learn-as-you-flow antics make him arguably one of the most follow-worthy”
The shell is purposefully lacking insulation to increase versatility: you can wear a puffy jacket underneath during the coldest snaps, or rock it with the pit zips cracked and a t-shirt underneath for slushy spring sessions. Factor in a performance fit, easily adjustable cuffs and hood, a smattering of pockets (zippered chest, zippered hand, goggle, media, etc.), and a removable powder skirt, and it’s obvious why this feature-packed, stormproof jacket is Pettit’s go-to, all-weather armour.
Pettit pairs the Evocative Shell Jacket with the Evocative RC Shell Pant. Simple, stylish, and affordable, the Evocative RC Shell Pants sports a relaxed fit and articulated knees for radical range of motion. Boot gaiters and snap-reinforced cuffs keep the pants snug and secure around the boot, while the snaps help deliver a more contemporary silhouette. The FN Dry 10K laminate and DWR-treated, recycled polyester fabric combo isn’t the most waterproof textile in Oakley’s lineup, but it handles precip-heavy resort days well. Not only that, but it keeps the cost extremely low, making the Evocative RC Shell a smart choice for boarders on a budget. With four zippered pockets to boot — two hand, one thigh, one back — the Evocative RC Shell Pant is a full-featured, stylish workhorse pant well-suited to long days of hiking hits, hucking meat, and chucking buckets.
Beneath the outerwear, Pettit stays comfortable thanks to the Gradient B1B Patch Hoodie — a performance-oriented iteration of everyone’s favourite lay day loungewear. The brushed fleece fabric is treated with Oakley’s Hydrofree hydrophobic compound, enabling you to wear the hoodie solo on warmer days. The small, neon patch is understated and subtle, making the hoodie as stylish as it is versatile — perfect for on and off the hill.
