Frame: Silver
Lens: Fire
These are amazing. I think that the color combo really attracts attention to the fire lens. I am very particular and "anal" about my lenses. I get very bothered by any sort of mark, greasy fingerprint or smudge on my lens, it drives me nuts. The first thing I did was test out the hydrophobic coating on these. I gathered up the courage and against all rational thought in my head let my 4 year old son and 1 year old daughter put thier greasy, grimey fingerprints all over the lens. About 1 minute later I took them back and VERY EASILY wiped them clean. I COULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT I SAW..........NOTHING ON THE LENS!!!
I was amazed. These also have excellent eye coverage to keep out the sun. I am going to buy the XLJ clear replacement lens as soon as it is available. I want the XLJ lens because the standard lens does not come down far enough to offer complete eye protection from small stones on the road when running/biking.
I highly recommend these to anyone who spends any amount of time outdoors and is obsessed with having spot free clean lenses. These are a must!!

Wow - Oakley got it right with this one. I have to admit I wasn't impressed with the pics.... The actual frames are awesome. They grip your head in the right place (in the back) and I would have no fear in wearing these in any high speed situation - bike, boat, convertible....jet....whatever. Definitely a pair for the lake. Combine the superior frame design with this new lens and you have a winner! Talk about wearing a fire lens with no fear - wow... No smudging - perfect for the bike or any high speed situation....

Definitely the new generation HJ - and well done. Get these as soon as you can - they are a perfectly done and will take over the HJ space with superior strength.

Amazing glasses, they bridge the gap between sport specific and fashion. You can use these as your every day shades and not look like a total tool. (unlike M frames) They also work very, very well for shooting and mountain biking. They're small enough to fit comfortably with a helmet or earmuffs. With a plethora of lens tints and two shapes to choose from, I'd consider this the most versatile model of current offerings. If all the aforementioned reasons weren't enough, you also get a permanent hydrophobic coating. (almost a must have for mountain biking)

I've owned many, many models of Oakley sunglasses over the years. I started with the original factor pilot glasses in the 80's and I can say these frames are in my top 3.

To the reviewer who trashed the glasses just because they didn't fit your face, that's not a good reason to give a low rating. Go try them on before you buy next time. (novel concept, I know)

Frame: Carbon Fiber / Polished Root Beer
Lens: G20 / Polarized VR28 Black Iridium

I picked these up this summer to add to my Flak Jacket collection and love the Root Beer frame. It is the closest I could get to Brown Smoke, which is by far my favorite frame option. I'm not sure why people don't seem to like it, but the frame is subtle and the gold icons give it a unique touch. VR28 Black still remains my all time favorite lens option.

The Carbon Fiber frame seemed to have issues. I got these customized as well and the frame seemed to be defective. First of all, the arms didn't fold in correctly which was quite annoying, and they would creak very badly. Also, when folded up, they didn't sit right with the lenses. They would lean forwards and wouldn't sit up right. I do not have this issue with any other Flak Jacket pairs I have (I have 5). G20 is an amazing lens though, but that is a different topic. The carbon fiber is very nice and the polished finish stands out. Aside from the arms, it still is a great frame.

Frame: White Text
Lens: +Red

This is a very nice combination and I love the +Red. The text is printed onto the frame and I hope it will last. Sadly the print is a bit pixelated and not very sharp if you look closely. But overall a very nice shade. I use it mostly for outdoor activities, this combination looks a bit too loud and sporty in the city for my liking.

The free Soft Vault that comes with it is very welcome!
