Oakley Recon 2014 Review by The Good Ride

The Oakley Recon Jacket is a shell with some mapped microfleece that has a good fit. It’s got a minimalist look and tech that’s about the industry average for the price. Not a bad option for someone looking to get something a little warmer than your average shell but still not be completely insulated.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.
