Wind Jacket? is a special rendition of our renowned Split Jacket? sunglass. We engineered Wind Jacket with snap-in gaskets for a protective seal and added a removable strap for a secure fit. Originally designed with motorcycle riders in mind, the removable gasket minimizes air flow across your eyes at high speeds. Complete with Switchlock? Technology for quick and easy lens changing, This interchangeable lens design is essential gear for any life with high velocity.

Choose tinted lenses for maximized vision during the day, and when the sun sinks, install our included clear lenses. All lenses are optimized with Hydrophobic/Oleophobic technology that repels dust and helps maintain a smudge resistant barrier against oils while preventing water from leaving streaks and sheens.

You?ll have the comfort of a durable yet lightweight O Matter® frame with a Three-Point Fit. Attach the eye gaskets when you?re headed out to face the wind, or remove them when you want the look of regular sunglasses. Of course there?s nothing regular about Wind Jacket, and the sport-inspired styling is highlighted with true metal icons.

With High Definition Optics® (HDO®), Wind Jacket meets ANSI Z87.1 standards for optical performance and impact resistance, and with XYZ Optics®, your peripheral view is razor sharp. Even the optional clear lenses are made of pure Plutonite®, a premium material that filters out 100% of all UV.

This speed fanatic comes with Warm Grey lenses, perfect for maintaining color recognition in bright sun. If you need prescription lenses, get the best. Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses are available with numerous options, and Wind Jacket can handle +2.00 to -4.00 combined power.

Very posh looking frames with the subtle text effect. Large, wrapping orbitals with sufficient peripheral vision for cycling (though warm weather may be a problem with the gasket seal and fogging, haven't tried that yet).
I had purchased these for their "Split Jacket" personna, thinking I would remove the eye gasket, and use them "nude".
It's an unbelieveably windy day today, with winter sand, salt and dust whipping through the air. I'm greatly suprised how well the gasketry works to prevent debris from getting at my eyes! These will be ideal for the motorcycle, as they fit great with my HJC modular helmet.
Don't be afraid of the Warm Grey lens! They are plenty dark (10%) for bright sunny (snowy) days, and my eyes are invisible behind 'em.
