Frame: Polished Black (Red Icons)
Lens: Fire Iridium Polarized

These are my favourite glasses now after trying so many pairs to get the right coverage and fit and lens colour. The frames are light and fit snug and if you have a small head you need to use the small nosepads as the big nosepads give too much of a gap at the bottom and you lose coverage. With the small nosepads you can get great coverage without the lenses touching your eyelashes or cheeks which is great as most smaller sunglasses need to sit too close to get coverage. The red icons compliment the fire iridium perfectly.
The fire iridium polarized is, in my opinion, the best lens oakley has produced. The green base allows you to see contrast but not too much to interfere with normal colour perception like in Titanium Iridium or Gold Iridium. The green base offers so much definition and colour seperation especially with trees. If you look at a cluster of trees with the naked eye all the shades of green blend together and look the same but when you look thru the fire iridium polarized any shades of light green stand out over the darker greens so each layer of green is seperated for better definition. Also, when in full sun with the sun in front of you at forehead height there is no glare. I have had VR28 Black Iridium Polarized while driving & walking with the full sun in front of me and the glare sheets across your vision and you can't see in front of you where fire iridium polarized has no sheet of glare at all and you can see right thru the glare.

If you want a pair of sunglasses that stay on your face..this is the pair! Great for sports. I bought the pair of the G30 lenes for these frames and they work great for golfing.

Ive had these glasses for about 9 years now and they are still kicking. Ive put them through heck and back while camping, fishing, children playing with them and they keep going. They are truely amazing.

This frame was the best of it time, but now bigger and better things have come along like the Flack Jacket and Radar. This frame gets a 3 because it fits a little to small for my face.

Frame: Polished aluminum
Lens: Titanium iridium

Up to now I thought that the polished aluminum finish was suitable only for the new straight jackets,since the half frame seemed somewhat restrictive.But this one is far beyond what I could imagine.Unlike the smooth straight jacket design,this one is full of edges,and the finish makes all this shine.I would say that the other polished aluminum models such as the minutes,the fives 2.0 and the xx are rather boring.Put in the equation the titanium lenses with the distinguishing etching on their bottom,and you have a bright,shiny,blinding piece of eyewear.If it weren't for the polarized editions whose significance I can't doubt,I'd say that these are the best half jackets.
