Much like the B-2 Grip box, but blue this time. I believe the B1-B's have another color. The rest of the grips came in square boxes, but I prefer these much more.

The F-1 Came in quite a large range of colours, so it was easy to coordinate with your old school ride.
Lovely looking bmx grips with a Removable outer sleeve,just the same as the B-1B Grip did.

Color: Blue/White

Again, another piece for the Vintage collection. I don't intend on using them, but they look a lot nicer than the B-2's. Instead of suction cups, there are holes in the grip, which the unobtainium from the inside leaks into. Pretty nice design.

I got my Black Factory New Era Cap as a gift in March 2013. Back then I wasn't into Oakleys yet so when sorted my little collection of caps, I was delighted to find this 'treasure'.

My Factory New Era is one of my favorite caps because it fits snugly into my head so I usually put them on when I'm into outdoor activities or sports like running, leisure biking or island hopping because my other caps would easily fall off on strong winds or constant movement.

Although the font appears somewhat outdated, this logo truly represents "a blast from the past" and will invoke nostalgic feelings from deep within if you've been a longtime Oakley fan.

Seems like a downgrade material-wise from 1.0 to keep the price down but has solid functionality improvements. 2.0 is easier to don thanks to a velcro flap at the back hand. Dropping the carbon fiber knucle plating was unexpected move but the kevlar padding replacing it is adequate from typical scuffs on crashes. The leather palms improves tactile feel but again seems to offers decreased protection compared to previous gloves. Fingerprint graphic seemed comedic to me at first but it actually works improving grip. Overall, the 2.0 is a softer more comfortable version of 1.0 so it doesn't replace it. And it retains the great look typical of it's Oakley lineage.

Yes, these are intended for mountain biking, but I actually use these for driving on cold days. I found that normal winter gloves are too bulky and sometimes too warm when all you want to do is take the edge off of a cold steering wheel. The FP 2.0 fits the bill quite nicely. The thin, soft palm offers the right tactile feel while still insulating your hands enough from the cold. The fingers are flexible enough so that you can still turn radio knobs and push buttons on the instrument panel with confidence. The rubbery fingerprint graphics add quite a bit of grip to the tips of the fingers, too. The Kevlar knuckle padding is a bit over-the-top for what I am using the gloves for, but not quite as bold as the carbon fiber on the original FP. The velcro tab on the back of the glove allows a great deal of adjustment for tailoring the fit.

I'm on my second pair for use on my motorcycle. Excellent grip factor and ventilation. The extended/bigger wrist strap feels more secure than the MTB and I can still fit my Timebomb on my wrist comfortably. I also used them to segway into the Winter but they are not waterproof, so they're more useful for cold steering wheels than clearing off the windshield. The finger print grip on the 1st gen was sweet looking but wore off quicker than I would have liked. The next gen had full fingerpad coverage and that seems to be holding up to the same sort of use much better. Mucho recommendo for ground rocketing.

Use these for Mountainbiking. They fit the bill, the CF knuckle protection and leather palm makes for a really tough pair of gloves. I only wish there was more ventilation on the palm area like the previous generation. All in all, these are some of the best gloves that the big O has in its arsenal.

Fantastic keychain, feels nice and sturdy, not cheap looking like others. The clip hook is strong and with it being made of leather it should last long. Only downside with the gray one is that colour "may" run onto the leather.
A great piece that actually performs well!

Simply AMAZING. Words cannot adequately sum up the awe-inspiring design! And when you wear them... two words: CHICK MAGNET. To add to the sleek design, these shades block all harmful UV light! And the price! You can't beat it with a golf club (or run over it with a "gulf cat", as they say in Australia). A true collector's piece from start to finish, these glasses deserve 1000 stars!

I actually had to get into a bidding war on ebay over these that shot the price into the four-figure mark (including pennies). But I was glad I won them, as they're solid as an ox and make you look twice as smart. Taking styling cues from the Plate, Splice, Half Jacket and several other amalgrams, the designer should be awarded the highest medal, preferrably a Purple Heart.

Frame: Cannon Yellow - Silver
Lens: Fire

To commemorate Scotty Cannon's racing career, Oakley introduced the Cannon Yellow frame on the Fandango. Not to be outdone by Gary Scelzi's Romeo 2.0 in Carbon/Fire, this rendition also boasts the same hue for the lenses. Extremely limited in production, these glasses are already becoming a collector's item. In fact, when I called Oakley the other day they hadn't even heard of these!

Frame: Silver
Lens: Blue

After first seeing these, I thought "Man, what a great idea!" I mean, who thinks of taking attributes from almost every O-Matter frame and then smearing them all together into one single frame? White noise is every frequency all mixed into one at the same time. These sunglasses epitomize that concept with all O-matter stylings.

If you can't afford a monster collection but still want the impressive looks from all frame designs, Fandango is the way to go.

Frame: Jet (Polished) Black
Lens: Black Iridium (Polarized)/ Persimmon

The Fast Jacket will seemingly be available only at O-Stores until production levels catch up and are able to supply other accounts purportedly sometime in July...
While the overall shape most closely resembles a Flak Jacket, fit certainly differs. The frame fits a bit wider through the temple, more similar to the Radar. The cored-out portions of the arms give the frame a softer, more comfortable flex. It "feels" like there is much less frame (like an M-Frame) until you look in a mirror. Angles on the arms are fairly aggressive, giving the frame a more purpose-built look. This is a stark contrast to the more casual style of a Flak Jacket.
Lens cuts are larger. The Standard cut is more similar in size to a Bottlecap lens, possibly even an Icepick. The XL cut is significantly larger, wrapping further back on the cheek towards the ear as well. Coverage with the XL feels a bit more like a Radar Range, just in a 2 parts as opposed to the shield.
I'm a fan of the Unobtainium earsock too, which takes on a little of the Scalpel earsock shape.
The Switchlock lever/pin mechanism works very smoothly, and most people will find it simple. I have never had trouble changing lenses in a Flak Jacket, so have found the new system rather unnecessary. I suppose some will like it, and some won't.
Aesthetically, I really like the Fandango-style icon application! As a whole, the frame boasts a purely sport-function, purposeful style. You will not see as many suits walking around in this frame as you do with the Flak, if any at all! It is another sport innovation that will do an excellent job for what it was designed to do, but I am guessing there will be much less crossover to casual wearers like the Flak and Split Jackets have had.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Blk iridium/persimmon

I've been waiting for this pair. I've always liked Half Jackets but found them small even with xlj. I like the fit of Flaks but found the frame a little boring. This is the best of both. Great lens coverage, super comfortable and they sit nice and square. The change out is easy using the switch lock. Black iridium is not my favorite so I opted non polarized and I'll upgrade later. The Persimmon will come in handy for indoor shooting. I'm stoked about these.

Frame: Lemon Peel
Lens: Fire Iridium / Persimmon

Purchased these at the Chicago O'Hare Airport O- Store. This was the last pair they had and the lens was damaged.

I was surpised at the frame. The yellow seems to be a thick coat of paint rather than actually Yellow O-Matter. The switchlock technology is very cool, but does take some getting used to. It's not very easy to activate and your palm/hand prints still get all over the lens.

The XL lenses which are larger offer great coverage and the high cutouts are good for asian faces or folks with high cheekbones. The frame shape is a little odd, taking cues from both the Flak Jacket and the Half Jacket. The frame looks wide on many people, including myself because the angles of the ear stems (like the Half Jacket). If those angles weren't there, the glasses would look much better. Icon placement is not good, as well. Hiding the icon on the tops of the glasses does not "Advertise" well.

Frame: Black Plaid
Lens: G30 Polarized/VR50
Returned the Fast jackets because somehow they made me feel dizzy. G30s more so than VR50. I gave it a fair try for a few days; went on mtb ride with VR50. Going downhill on pavement at high speed felt a bit weird. However VR50 lens tint is excellent for riding on trails. In spite of big lens coverage wind protection wasn't that good for me. Some air turbulence got in from the sides. Styling on the other hand is excellent. Fit is good and secure. Fast jackets are stiffer and bulkier comparing to Commits or XXs.

Frame:Fast Jacket
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized

This is a great frame for anyone that cannot fit into a flack or Half Jacket. The XL lens is perfect if you have a high nose bridge and or low cheek bones. Purely a sporty pair that I like to wear when I play golf, or throw in the other lenses for shooting range. Love them!

I love these! Actually I would say they are the best sport sunglasses I ever had. Lens choice is perfect for any condition and sport. I do a lot of mtb and road bike and both lenses shade are perect in a wide range of light condition. Only thing I don't like is that you have to clse the stems to make the switchlock work.

Frame: Black Plaid
Lens: G30 Polarised/VR50

I love these glasses, they fit my face perfectly, lots of protection against flying stuff (my juliets left a bit of a gap between the frame and my cheek, and i was always wary about using them as safety glasses)

im not a huge fan of the G30 polarised, it has a orangey pink tint to it, and messes with my colour perception (im a photographer) - when they are available i will get a set of Black Iridium Polarised lenses to use when im out photographing.
when im not out photographing they are a great lens, the contrast boost is great, and they seem to let a little bit more light through, which is handy as it starts to get dark
I do love the Black Plaid Colourway

i havent really used the VR50 lenses, as i understand it they are better suited for overcast weather, its the middle of summer over here

the Switchlock system works very smoothly, changing lenses takes 30 seconds or so.

my new Go-To glasses, i still wear the Juliets (black iridium) when i need colour accuracy, but the fast jackets seem to grip my head perfectly, fit like a dream, and the polarised lenses are awesome (even if it messes with my colour perception)

Frame: Blue Camo
Lens: Grey

This is by far one of the nicest frame colors I have seen in a while from Oakley. It would be a shame to see it not break away from the Stretchline into the regular styles. The Fatcat is a larger style a la the Monster Dog minus the wrap around frame. Boxed, flat daddio style lenses. The ear stems are slightly longer than normal, thick at the temple and taper out at the end. The fit is actually loose compared to most Oakley styles. They actually slipped down more often than not. One aesthetic flaw, the metal stretch logo on the stem kept popping off at the ends and wouldn't stick back down. When the frame was rattled you could hear the lenses shaking around. If these are a limited edition frame, wear them for a while and store them away, but if Oakley continues with it I hope they get it tightened up a bit.
Ed -
Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Grey

I must admit that I did not think much of the FatCats when I first saw pictures of them. Then, I saw some pictures of people actually wearing them, and they looked much better. Not the style I usually go for, but a refreshing change. I typically stay away from frames without nosepads or earsocks, but these are lightweight and have a snug fit, so they are still comfortable to wear. The gunmetal stretch logo looks cool with the matte black frame... kind of an "SI" FatCat. My pair did not have any of the problems that Phil experienced. Everything is tight and solid. Perhaps quality/fit/finish have improved over time.

The bright red Microbag is a neat little collector's item since it is unique to the Stretchline (so far). Same goes for the red box.
JL -
Frame: Whisky
Lens: Bronze

The lenses on mine are rattly and particularly noisy when i put them on, a noise like the lenses want to pop out. The frame however is very nice but there is no flex whatsoever in the frame so i would probably have to recommend Monster Dogs to those who have larger heads. Ok as a casual sunglass but can't compare to some of the other models Oakley makes.
Dann -
Frame: Whiskey, Black, Cream
Lens: Gold, Grey

Finally got to see these in person, and I have to say, I'm so glad I didn't buy without trying. They are very very fashion oriented, and I can't imagine why ski and surf shops are the only one who can sell them, as I can't imagine anyone using these for sports. The are like a cross between a very thick Four face and thinner Monster Dog arms. Interesting pair, but no good for me. Too bad Blue Camo is limited to this.

Edit: changed my mind and moved score from 2 to 4.
LEX7 -
Frame:Polished Black
Lens:Black Iridium Polarized

These look so cool.
I have been desperate for the blue camo ones ever since I saw a pic of them on this site but I cant find them in any stores in the UK. I tried on these ones and I must say I was tempted to get these as well as my planned blue camo ones.
I agree with Dann that they look like small monster dogs. the monster dogs are wraparounds but Fat cats are not, they are a flat lens pair of glasses so not good for sport, similar to the oakley Four/Mag Four shape.

Frame: Polished Black (Rasta)
Lens: Grey
The Rasta-colored logo on these is what attracted me to this pair. The fit is what has turned them into one of my daily wearers. I didn't think I would like these as much as I actually do. They have a nice tight fit, and there is just no way of getting around the fact that the Rasta logo is cool.

Frame: Blue Camo
Lens: Grey

Another nice O-matter frame from Oakley. They're kinda like Monster Dogs that's been left in the dryer too long, with less base curve, and just a tad more angled. They fit almost like MDs as well, which is good since the Dogs are a pretty verstile and comfortable frame. As for the look, the stretch logo across the earstems seems a little gaudy compared to the simple elegance of the "O" icon found on most other models but the blue camo finish is superbly done.

Frame: Tortoise
Lens: Bronze

I am leaving my first review of the Cats untouched. At the end of that review I had said "if Oakley continues with it I hope they get it tightened up a bit." Man they did. I tried on two, the ones I bought and Matte Black, and the fit was spectacular. They were tighter and the lenses didn't rattle. I was extremely happy with the look. I never really wear my Os for sports so I can do well with this frame. I may even hunt down the Blue Camo again. I would love Polished Black with a Titanium or Bronze lens.

Frame: Matte Black

Just picked these up yesterday at the O Store with no intention of buying any glasses when I went in there. My buddy that was with me said that he hated them, that was before he put them on, his mind changed real quickly and he is picking some up as well next week. I am usually not an impulse buyer but these looked great and totally different. They have a boxy look that a lot of glasses are going towards but they give it the Oakley style of course. I also like that they have the entire Oakley name in a metal insert on the sides instead of just the O. The last kicker for me was that you cant get them anywhere except for the store and occasianlly on ebay. Im actually getting rid of my Juliets for these.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Black Polarized

In the world of stereotyping Oakleys as wrap-around eyewear (which, realistically hold water pretty well), the FatCat is revolutionary simply for its flat, boxy style. Throw some sweet Monster Dog-like earstems on that box and you have a pretty stylin look. The big Bonus?: Bringing back the stretched Oakley script on the earstems is awesome! Not since my old Zeros ... it's been so many years! More hip than the Monster Doggle? Could be, but luckily I have no fashion sense!

I purchased these pair mainly because of the stretched Rasta logo but after I tried it on I was hooked.It fits great and look cool but the lens rattle in the orbitals.Fortunately the other colorways doesnt appeal to me (maybe later it will) so I dont have to worry about completing the set.Overall its a nice addition to my collection.

The Fat Cats are my answer to wishing my head was just a wee bit bigger so that I can wear Monster Dogs. They aren't as curved, but the coverage is still fantastic and they are super comfortable.

One day...I want every color.
Ed -
Frame: Whiskey
Lens: Bronze

Fatcat is becoming one of my favorite frames in the vast Oakley line-up. Perhaps it is the nice blend of fashion (did I say that?), aggressive styling, exclusivity, and frame fit that makes it especially appealing.

The Whiskey frame did not appeal to me at first, but I have since warmed up to it. I am a bit concerned about it's durability, since some have experienced chipping of the brown paint after use. It is a nice change from the usual one-color frames. As always, the bronze lenses are a treat for the eyes.

Frame: Matte Black w/ Gold Icons
Lens: Bronze

A custom combination created by taking the lenses and icons from a Whiskey/Bronze 'cat and putting them in a Matte Black frame. I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the gold icons stand out against the matte black frame. This was my answer to not being able to get a Bronze lens in a black frame.
Ed -
Frame: Crystal Clear w/Gunmetal Icons

Another custom combination created by scraping the brown paint off a Whiskey frame and installing the Grey lenses and Gunmetal icons from a Matte Black/Grey 'cat. The results look pretty good, and I'm hoping that Oakley will release some crystal clear frames in the future.

Frame: Blue Camo
Lens: Grey

The Blue Camo frame colour is great and so I had to get it. It has a matte finish and is really standing out. I'm not a big fan of Grey lenses, but they are ok.

This is my only pair of Fatcats and I'm not impressed. Sure they look very cool in the display and I like the design with the thick O-Matter frame. But they don't look very good on me and the fit is even worse. Basically all Oakley sunglasses fit me, except frames that are just too big for me. But the Fatcat is squeezing my nose somehow and sits very high up on the nose. Also the front is very flat, making the wrap around my head a bit weird. The lenses are very small because of the big frame. All in all better for display and only three stars.

Frame: Rasta

...and I find myself buying another, only a year after a bad review of them. I've seemed to find a new love for them, or maybe the new stuff just rubs me wrong, and these seem that much better.

Forgive my statements about the other pairs. The blue camo makes up for the rest. It's a nice solid piece and really makes a statement. I wore it with a pair of Orange Camo shorts and they sure did clash, but I love it. Great pair to own. Too bad they've discontinued it.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized

I was thinking of getting Monster Dogs, but the lens rake was a little too large for my liking, and once I tried on the Fat Cat, I loved them. They have the perfect size lens and orbitals to give you that stylistic look without overstating it the way Monster Dog does.

I love Polished Black/Black Polarized combo. Totally subdued colour, exactly what I want to give me that 'Hollywood' edge. I wore these to the beach the other day and they were PERFECT. Cut the glare off the water and I didn't have a problem getting these wet and covered in sunscreen, because they are just plastic. No unobtanium to get clogged and such.

I have my X-metal Juliets for the out there, technology driven side of Oakley. Fat Cat I have because they are just bad ass.

They are a little bit tighter than a Monster Dog on my head, but not too tight that they are uncomfortable. With the tightness that they are, they wont be falling off my head easily.

Try on a pair as soon as you can.

As with everyone else, I love the frame colour, but not a lot else. I'm not at all convinced by the stretch logo, which just looks tacky.

Frame: Crystal Clear

Whoa, I love these things! This is one of the few FCs that came from the factory like this rather than being a custom (as evidenced by the lack of scruffs and scratches associated with such a process). They fit very well and provide great coverage dispite not having a 8-base curve. Certainly more fashion-oriented compared to other models that were out when the FC was introduced but not fully so. There's still that Oakley craziness in the design, so it stands out rather than blends in. The only problem with this frame is that the light bleeds through because it's clear. 4.5 out of 5 stars (rounded to 5).

And I get two more making the total 4, with 3 left. I got these very cheap and did a swap on the lenses. I'm not a fan of all black frames, and the Cream/Gold seems like two shades of a similar hue. So I feel the Black and White theme looks much better, and the Black/Gold adds a nice touch of color to a neutral frame. As always, they're a bit flat, but a nice smaller Monster Dog type glasses. Good if you dislike the new square models coming out.

Two more to the list. The Whiskey frame is a vey nice option. Care must be taken to not rub off the coating, since that is a possibility. Tortoise is again growing on me as with this model. The two semi-translucent frames make the pairs appear somewhat lighter and more vibrant. The Bronze lens is adequate and helps shave a little off the price. Recommended.

I got these second hand and the whiskey frame still looks new. I love the different look of the lenses in the bronze color.

So, thats what i did, it came with original red box and red micro-fiber bag. A tad bit small on my head but they fit, awesome color!!!! And with the Fat Cat being a strechline frame people notice that its not a "O" or the square O which is kind of rare where im from.4-5 bones

Frame: Rasta
Lens: Grey

Considering my affliction of the Monster line as well as the older frames this draws off, I immediately fell in love with the RASTA colorway and the stretch logo. It's in my display case because it's hard to find now / replace. Fit wise it's a bit smaller on my head, like the straight jackets or XX but I could still pull it off. It's true the lenses do rattle around a bit when they aren't on your face but when you put them on there is no noise. All in all a good addition to the collection!

Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Grey

These don't really do much for me. They probably look better on me than I think they do, but they don't have the attention getting looks or the awesome functionality of most of the frames I go for. They fit ok, a bit snug, and the coverage is not what I'd want for driving. My opinion might change with some hot lenses like ruby or fire, but this combo is just blah IMO. Hmm, some custom cut ruby's in the matte black frame just might completely change my mind on this pair...

Frame: Cream
Lens: Gold Iridium

I bid on these on eBay as an impulse. No one else bid, and I ended up getting them for less than $50. I'm surprised at how aggressive they look. I thought they looked like a smaller, fatter, Monster Pup. I was right, but they're still pretty awesome looking. I tried them on after receiving them, and they looked so manly that I felt like I needed to beat something up or knock something over. I've been a fan of the Cream color ever since it was called "Ivory" on the Eye Jacket. Maybe Cream is more PC than Ivory. Either way, I like it.

Just got these off Ebay yesterday and they are so sick I love the look. The only thing I will say bad about them is they create blind spots in vision. But this is all trumped by how great they look on me.

Frame: Lithium
Lens: Grey

I don't own these of course, but my sister does, and these get more wearing than the Minutes. The clear marble 'lithium' frame looks nice, but also works as a pseudo-Nirvana reference for the Cobain fan.

The frame is simple as they come, which helps with the low price point, but with the lack of unobtainium comes more detail in the frame itself. The stems have channeled grooves in them and the orbitals have intersecting curves coming from the earstems. All in all, and very nice work or art for the ladies.

Frame: Rootbeer
Lens: Gold Iridium

I guess I'm the first actual wearer of these to give a review. These are my first Oakleys ever, and I absolutely love them.

They're small enough to fit my rather small face (Minutes don't fit me at all). They don't hit my cheekbones or bob up and down when I smile.

I adore the lenses in mine, never really owned a pair of sunglasses with anything but grey lenses, but I'm converted. They also help block out wind to some extent, which is a part of the reason I went with a somewhat wrap around frame. Hardly any amount of light bleeds in through the sides either.

Another spiffy thing about them is that they can sit on top of my head all day and never move. Now, this really doesn't seem like a big deal, I guess, but it's a great feature. They don't hurt, or get tangled, or slide down or anything else lots of other glasses do. I can barely feel 'em sitting up there.

These fit me great and the lenses are awesome, and I am so glad that I finally invested in a pair of sunglasses that look like they'll last for a long time. That and they're really cute.

Frame: Blue
Lens: Blue/Black

A pretty basic style for women. Of course, most women aren't out to buy Oakleys for the wild style (Plate, OTT, etc.), so these Fates are a perfect fit. Actually, my wife wears these most often. Lightweight, easy styling.

Frame: Cheetah
Lens: Leather Gold Iridium

I like the fit of these better than the Haylon, and at half the price you can't beat that! Even though they are a woman's pair, I think that the "cat eye" look doesn't pull so strongly that a male couldn't wear them. Great pair for all you asians out there.

The colorway I have is a bit extreme for me, but I bought it because it matches perfectly with the collar on one of my favourite jackets. I will definitely be picking up more of these.

Frame: Lavender
Lens: Violet

Before you question my choice of colourway (really "Liberace" if I wore them lol), I bought these for my long suffering girlfriend who has had to put up with my Oakley obsession.

They're really funky in this colourway, they feel extremely light and although the transmission index is quite high she says they do still eliminate most bright light. I love the silver "O" on the earstems and the way they seem embedded in the earstems themselves, a really cool rounded design which seems to lend itself better to female faces than male I feel...plus, she no longer needs to "borrow" my Juliets :-)

Frame: Black / Rootbeer
Lens: Ruby Iridium / Gold Iridium

These are what I bought for my approaching-teenage kids as their first quality sunglasses. Like the blurb says they provided excellent protection with a near face fit that kept sand out. They even survived a few accidents with the simple frames just popping back together. Naturally the lenses didn't last forever....

A good choice for My First Oakleys(TM).

I bought these for some of my Volleyball players (U13 level). These fit them perfectly and were at the right price. Some of them tried in the Flak Jackets- but they're too big for 13 year old girls.

The parents were happy to get them Oakley for $19.99 and the kids thought the looked great.

One complaint with the Violet lens- the girls complain that these make things brighter. When i look through them, they remind me of persimmon or yellow, they do enhance contrast and won't be good for direct, bright sunlight, but great for low sun/overcast conditions.

Frame: Black
Lens: Ruby Iridium

Bought these for a girlfriend in the mid 200's. Pretty small, but they worked for the shape of her face. Remind me of a smaller version of Fives, or a modified version of Four S. I don't think I've seen another pair since we broke up.

After the B&W boxes came the artwork boxes. They are usually the Yellowish ones as seen on the side of this box, but this one at least was customized to the model name.

Very nice fit for me and good looking. Somewhat wide so not for smaller heads. Good construction and extremely shiny alloy. Would give higher mark if came with hard case.



Wookieman -
Frame: Chocolate
Lens: Dark Bronze

Nice new take one the aviator. Should fit medium small to medium large craniums pretty well. Points were docked because of the lack of hydrophobic coating and hard case. Also, the frame does squeeze a little which can become uncomfortable after a while.
N.O.X -
Frame: chocolate
Lens: dark bronze
They are too wide to fit pretty much any face. And even if they do they are to shallow to look good at all. Also they are too flat to provide any coverage. The Oakley name is too renowned to put out this garbage.
Toniclonic -
Frame: Any
Lens: Any
I'm sorry but these are absolute garbage. They are heavy, wide, and the visual coverage is hands down the worst of any Oakley frame I have ever tried on. I think if Oakley would have tried to engineer these in the same way they did the Crosshairs they would sold much better, especially if they could have made the frames out of titanium. Overall,these are horrible.

Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Warm Grey
Excellent sunglasses! They feel extremely sturdy and while they lack the very light weight that can be found on many Oakleys, you won't notice it once they are on your face. In typical Oakley fashion, have very aggressive styling and are a great aviator styled pair of sunglasses without have excessively large lenses as can be found on many pairs of aviators.
Aman -
Frame: Polished Gold
Lens: Dark Grey
These definitely have their pros and cons. They are built like a rock, but they are probably the heaviest Oakley sunglasses I own. I really like the lens combination in these. The dark grey lens looks really good with the polished gold frames. But as everyone has already stated, they are really wide and flat. I don't understand how they could fit someone all that well unless you have really big cheeks and a really small nose

Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Warm Grey

I love my Matte Black Crosshair S pair because there are certain situations they are perfect for. So, I was very excited to get a pair of Felons in the same colorway. From the product images, I thought they looked like a less rounded Crosshair S. And while the Felons are just that (to a certain extent), once on my face, they look worlds apart.

I often find the hinges of glasses sitting out too far from my face. The Felons are a perfect example of this. They are relatively flat without much wrap in them at all, and the hinges are way too far out there for my liking. On a personal basis, this will not do, and I have to give them two skulls.
Ian -
Frame: Brushed Chrome
Lens: Grey

The glasses are great because they can be had so cheaply. When bought for a third up to half of MSRP, they become a staple of the "Worn every day" part of the collection. They are aviator style. With that said, they are Oakley versions of classic aviators. They have both the pros of Oakley and the cons of the particular style. I find that people hate them because they are neither O-Matter or X-Metal, and they don't fit like Juliets or Gascans.
ASIANPERSUASION -
Frame: CHOCOLATE

These are a perfect fit for asians. Wide, Flat and good for small noses. I have already bought 3 of these. Thankfully there was a pair of "regular" oakley's that I didn't need to look for the "asian" fit. Just perfect.
monster_beetle -
Frame: Polished Gold
Lens: Dark Grey

Many people are negative about this one, actually I don't know why... The design is pretty cool IMO. Not such a smooth aviatior but a bit more industrial and sturdy looking, as is the feel.
You have to try them on to see if they look good on your face, but if they do a real must have.

They can look somewhat wide on your head, strange as the inmate looks like the bigger one of these. But these look wider because the frame isn't really curved. And if it fits your face the more straight frame will make it just as awesome as they are :)
Den -
Frame: Black
Lens: Grey
They do not feel like the Oakleys I am used to wearing and they were too flat for me. I did manage to adjust them for my face by bending them to a wrap around. After bending at the nose bridge you had to adjust the ear pieces or they will squeeze your temples. It is important to bend ear pieces at cut out notches. I bent the ones closest the lens outward and the notches closer the ends of the ear pieces inward. I did this slowly little by little until my temples were relived of pressure.

Now I get better coverage from light and they look better since they are fit to my face.
MicahS -
Frame: Brushed Chrome
Lens: Grey
This is the type of frame you will either love or hate. I have a pretty small face/head so these fit pretty well. If you have anything larger than a medium size head these will probably not fit. I love the smaller lens size on this frame which looks better on me than the larger sizes that you find on so many of the aviator style glasses.
As stated above the frames do seem to be heavier than they should be, probably because the frames are relatively thick around the orbitals. I dont have much issue with this because I wear glasses with a pretty heavy prescription when I dont have my contacts in. When I compare them to some of my other Oakley frames they fall on the heavy side, but not the heaviest.
These do have a somewhat unique look to the because of the flat nature of the frame. They have no wrap to speak of at all. I dont consider it a bad thing, just different. It definitely a frame you want to try on before you by because of the look.
I gave them four skulls for unique design but heavy weight.

I just bought one of this bag in infrared. It was like love at first sight. Looks nothing fancy, but I like the plain look. It's quite big and has comfortable wide shoulderpads. My favorite bag.
After a few days after purchase I found a "secret" pocket on the back, where you can hide some smaller, important things (i.e. money or ID card).
Iggy -
I got this bag in Japan shortly after it was released in February. The 'Fifty' in the name actually refers to its price-point in US dollars, though it set me back about 7000 yen there. I suppose they call it the Nana-sen Pakku?

In any case, I've used this bag regularly for three months in Australia for my daily university activities, which involves lugging around several thick legislation textbooks. The light weight along with the padding on the back and shoulder straps helps immensely in this regard.

The main compartment is what I call a 'Giant Pocket'; it can fit a reasonable amount of items, such as the fat 2006 Corporation and Master Tax Guides, a few notes and a thin folder. Considering how thick these textbooks are (they can probably stop a bullet), I'd consider the capacity to be pretty large and spacious.

The front pocket actually encompasses the whole front of the bag, though its just empty space above the portion you normally make use of. Here, there are two mesh pockets with Velcro closures, four shotgun loops in a vertical line and a lanyard on the right-hand side.

There are two side pockets with mesh webbing, and you can fit a 600ml bottle or a foldable umbrella in these. A bullet-style Vault can fit as well; it accommodates my X Metal Soft Vault nicely.

On the back, there is access to a zipped, padded compartment near the top of the bag, its use identified by a small PVC icon of an iPod. It's a bit larger than your average CD player, so anything smaller than that would be a good fit. If you do so choose to use it, the earphones/remote of your music player can pass through a small hole through the main compartment and out the front from the black PVC port.

Still on the back, there is also one compartment hidden in the lower portion of the mesh padding (it was so well hidden such that I found it a whole month from when I bought it). It does not expand much, so you can only store a few small or thin items that you might not want other people to know you have.

There's a compartment on the left shoulder strap, its use signified by a small PVC icon of a mobile phone. Similar to the side pockets, this also has mesh webbing although you cannot zip the compartment closed when occupied. I don't like it, personally; I think one would be better off with the new cell phone case attached to the D Ring on the right shoulder strap (EDIT: the new Cell Phone Case will not fit on the shoulder strap due to the orientation of the Cell Phone Case's snap closure... a bit disappointing).

All in all, the bag does its job pretty well, considering its relatively low price. I do wish the design was more over-the-top like the Kitchen Sink or SI Computer Bag, but who am I to complain considering, how much it costs? The Black version does have red stitching all around, which kind of makes up for it.

If you need a simple no-frills bag, then this is for you.

Color: New Khaki

Only Oakley could, or even would take something as regular as as an average backpack and make it so cool. Plenty of room and plenty of compartments for whatever you need to put in it and you'll look great wearing it. It's also very affordable - so if you're looking for just a regular backpack, this is the one to get.
DBCooper_into_O -
I love this bag. I got it in the New Khaki. It was the only color left in the store when I got mine. I love that I can carry a LOT in this bag. I'm a college student and I usually carry about 1-2 textbooks, a notebook, a pair of shoes, and my workout clothes. Yes, all this in this little backpack!! And I love the media compartment for some extra storage for my Ipod and speakers. There is also a small "hidden storage compartment" that is nice for personal things you don't want anyone to find. Awesome bag for the price!!

Give Tyler Durden the weirdest glasses you can think of. Leather Mars. They show up in hotel scene when he's bald and work for what it was worth with his thrift store fashion sense.

I give this cameo made by the Leather Mars a 5 out of 5 simply because I dig Mars and Brad Pitt is a bad ass; the two were made for each other. Unlike most people, I noticed that Pitt was wearing the very first time I saw the film.

never noticed the MARS ! have to see the movie again now, which is not a punishment

Blink and you'll miss the cameo the Mars makes here. As Phil said, when Tyler Durden reappears in the hotel room with a shaved head and he says "I told you one thing; one simple thing" you can see the Leather Mars. Then he takes them off and drops them on the table next to him and that, ladies and gentlemen, is the Leather Mars in Fight Club.

This is the best use Oakley sunglasses ever as theses suit Fight Club & Tyler Durden down to the ground. Oakley Mars are a required taste and these suit Tyler Durdens' taste perfectly. 10 out of 10

I actually have the Fine Knit Beanie 3.0. This is a nice, basic cold-weather beanie. Soft and stretchy, should fit most heads comfortably. One interesting note: the embroidered icon on the front of the hat is not centered in relation to the red tab and seam on the back, so you have to misalign one of them when you wear it.

I have a 3.0 and it feels awesome, just what I need for a Welsh winter, it hugs my head really well and the warmth I get from it is perfect for this climate...one of the my more essential O purchases except my juliets :-)

Bought mine on a trip on which I swore I wouldn't buy any Oakley gear. But it got cold, so I needed a hat. It's great, soft, no lint, well made. The best part is that it is sewn so that there aren't any weird bumps when you put it on. Great beanie.

Nice beanie, but has a tendancy to 'rise' - needs fairly constant adjusting (maybe I just have an strange head!) Have the rust one, which certainly helps you become spotted in a crowd!

Color: Black 2.0 and a white 3.0

I Love my black 2.0, it fits my head perfectly. I just got my white 3.0 that I orderd from GB. It's a nice beanie but it's a little bigger (longer about 1 centimeter) and gets to much in my face.
The seams on top of the beanie are different on the 3.0 and I belive that's why it's longer.

Anybody who knows where I can order a white 2.0 (old school style) ??
Please PM me if you do!!

Highest rating!!

Color: Black

The Fine Knit Beanie 2.0 is shorter than the original Fine Knit Skull Cap and the newer Fine Knit Beanie 3.0. It has 4 threads/seams and is made from 100% acrylic fine knit.

It's back is a little longer, which will help to cover your hair (if you have any) without the need to pull it over your face for this. ;)

This is definitely a cool beanie.

The 'cool factor' compared to the Fine Knit Skull Cap is slightly lower, as it does neither come with the Scatter Skull tag nor the wide 'Oakley Genuine Software' tag. Instead, it has a red Oakley tag inside and a white one with information that it's made in China and 100% acrylic. So there's no reason to wear the Fine Knit Beanie 2.0 inside-out. But this was appealing to aging 'O'-freaks only anyways.

When directly comparing the Fine Knit Beanie 2.0 with the Fine Knit Beanie 3.0 in store, I found the Fine Knit Beanie 2.0 to be a little softer.

color: sheet metall

version: fine knit beanie 3.0

looks better than the 2.0 to me because you wear the "O" over the eye and not over forehead. you can cover you ears great with it but it looses fit when you put your head into your neck e.g. when you are biking, but it's not so bad...

even like the clean look, just an "o" on the front and a small lable on the back.

Mu bonito un poco corto aunque el mio es el 3.0 crep que hubiera sido mejor que fuera un poco mas grande largo .

Version: 3.0

Color: Dark Red

I bought this hat at the SoHo O-Store. I have long hair and I like my beanies to cover a fair amount of it. This hat does that well; its not a small one, with a depth of 8.5 inches. It's very confortable compared to some of the beanies I have worn in the past. When I saw it I thought the embroidered icon was meant to be facing straight forward when worn, but if you have the seam in exactly in line with your spine, the embroidery will be set off to the left. I think it looks better when at center so I wear mine with the seam slightly to the right. Theres some tag inside the hat that I really dislike and has kanji on the back but since it doesn't itch I guess it can stay there. This hat is also quite flexible, so you'd better believe that it'll fit all sizes of Homo Sapien cranium.

Great beanie for the winter. Easy to take care of, and relatively inexpensive, hence why I have it multiple colors. Thin but provides adequate warmth and coverage for my bald dome in Minnesota winters. The seamless design makes it comfortable; no stitching or panels to make it feel funny. Durable; most of mine are a couple years old and a seasonal wash makes'em like new. I'm trying to get it in all the colors.

I got this one in San Francisco in 1999. Pretty much from day one I have only worn inside out. Sure it would hide the "O" in the front, but sure enough the black on white skull sticker on the back was what made it cool.

50 beanies later or so, I never liked any other better - this one never felt itchy, even if you are running hot and sweaty.

Dude, I lost it in a cab a week ago - I think I need therapy for the first time now!!

Spectacular, so unique and so stylish.
i have 2 eye jackets with this frame colour cos i love it so much.
im hoping to soon find the zeros with fingerprint frame.
the black and grey lines gives a zoomed in fingerprint look.
i wish these would come back in some other colours on modern frames.
BrianJ1888 -
A much better looking alternative to the cheezy looking Carbon Fiber print.

Got ahold of this on an M Frame Slash. Fingerprint is definitely a frame that should come back someday, but for now, we'll have the memories of glasses past.
TERRORISM -
The thumbprint colorway looks amazing on some of the older frames (especially M Frames), although it probably wouldn't serve Oakley well for the newer generation models. This colorway basically indicates a vintage pair of Oakleys and thus a piece of history.

I agree with Dann. It's a bad lens and too noticeable. When I wore this lens in Twenty I had noticed color shifts from the outer edges of the lenses to the center. It seemed to shift form a green to almost a warm brown.
NeptuneTQ -
I actually really love this lens, my favorite next to the Ruby. Then again, I really love flashy things, and this is definitely really flashy. These are the first lenses I've ever seen, on the Juliet model, and it made me fall in love with Oakley's. I like it because of how lively it is, most colors are pretty much stationary, but these lenses seem alive with the mirror polish and orange/yellow color changing. The negatives to me on these are, it scratches easy, REALLY easy, smudges like crazy, and it costs a little more. Other then that, these are my favorite other then the Ruby lenses.
BrianJ1888 -
Have these on my Mag Switch's. Like everyone says, they're a loud lens. More of a fashion statement than a practical lens. I'll probably swap these for some Ice Iridium's. The tint on these is a yellowish base, and it distorts your vision more than any other color I've tried. Driving with these should be avoided, because it alters your view of brake/tail lights. Skip these if possible (unless you want attention and scratched lenses) and get a grey-base or bronze-base lens.
luke -
I love Fire... I love the way it changes colour when viewed from different angle.
So far I don't have a problem with scratches...
Like any other mirror lenses, they smudge from the slightest touch. It gets annoying when you forget to bring yer microbag.

MelG -
Easily gets scratched. The 1st gen Fire lens looks more orange to dark orange, no yellow reflections. Very much effective during sunny days as you won't see the warm brown which only shows during medium lights.

i love these lens! they are great. though they smudge easily just wipe it with your pouch.

My 5 star choice, most of my Oakley come with Fire lens, I can wear them indoor and outdoor, sunny or cloudy... I just love them!
Wassaaaaaaaaaap -
Eyecatching. Fire lenses are great for very sunny conditions, but if you have the money I would suggest that you dish out a little more and get the polarized version. If you are on a budget though these will do the trick. These lenses scratch and smudge very easily. Be careful with them.
RubyMars -
Two upsides to this lense: Great contrast looking through thanks to the amber base and the tuning by the Iridium. Two downsides to this lense: Everyone who buys Oakley to be part of the crowd buys this lense. The "oooh, pretty" effect. Also the hardest lense to keep clean ever.
Iwan -
Great looking lens, garantied to get you noticed. I haven't had any problem with reflections but it certainly has a stonger mirror than other iridium lenses.
The difference with non Rx fire lenses is that you don't get to see them before you buy them so you don't know if your lens will be more yellow, green or red due to batch differences.
frankie4fingers -
The lens I wear most times caused by sport. Have them for M-Frame and they are really great. You have a good contrast and it's good for changing lights. Contrast much better than other dark Iridium lenses which are available for M-Frame. Very noticeable, but as cyclist you get what you want. No discussion about the Iridium color, they are like they shall, like fire, colorfull (red,yellow,bit green)
Tim cooper -
Not a very good looking lens from outside too artificial looking. Gold iridium looks far more dressy. View through the base is good though and remarkably crisp! OO Red iridium and gold iridium looks heaps better than this artafical effect. A definate youth tint not really the look for elderly.
jumpman73 -
Another of my al time favorites. I just love the way these look. It is so cool to see the red/yellow tints in these lenses. I have these in my polished Juliet frames and my plasma Romeos. I enjoy these lenses so much I wore them when I crossed the stage for my Masters Diploma.
Litor -
Well I ordered these lens for my fives 2.0, hard to get them, I had to go to a to percision optics because the sunglass hut would not order them for me. At first I did not like them but I got use to them , they really bring out the yellow in the leaves in the fall and they brighten every thing up , their not the best for glare or really bright days but I could not order rubys or red iridium lens so I got these. oh almost forgot they scratch so easy no matter how careful you are with them.
dan-E -
A very bold, flashy lens for those that like to stand out and they work well with most frames. However, that greenish tint when you look through might not be for everyone. They didn't bother me but there are others I like better.

Having said that, while they might seem murky when you're trying them on inside a mall, they're excellent wear them outside a bright sun. The Amber base is soothing and the contrast it provides is very nice. Ironically, this is the one high-contrast lens that doesn't seem to work very well in lower light.

i love the way this lens looks but i swear this lens gets dirty by the sunglasses just being in their case. I have to clean these lenses every few days.

My Rx Half Jackets are in fire iridium. They are really cool. My only problem with them is that I see some reflection at certain angles. Other than that they are great.
Jay Ho -
I really loved these lenses. I loved the way they made everything looked through them, crisp and clear. I used them for driving, skiing, and everyday wear. A little loud for the corporate environment but on weekends, they stayed on my face. I had them on my Romeo and they were my faves. Unfortunately, since they were worn so much, and with Oakleys' ease of scratches, they had to be retired. At first, I lived with some scratches but then they got out of hand. After trying unsuccessfully to get replacement lenses, I sold them hoping the new Romeo with gold would do similarly. Not really but not a bad lens color either. I give the Fire a 5 but the lense durability a 2. Nowadays, I am VERY VERY careful with all my other lenses.

A staple of the Oakley line up. A nice lens but don't work well with every lens style. For instance, In my Straight Jackets they're a fine lens but in My Over-The-Tops they have an odd, color-changing appearance when looking through them

listen to Dann , he is spot-on with this lens , if you want people to notice you , wear these ! actually sold really well for a while
LEX7 -
Im not a huge fan of the fire lens, granted it looks great from the outside but it really does make everytihng look rather a dullish green.
I have also found that somehow this lens gets dirty alot easier than all my others.
sparra -
Very surprised at the current opinion, I love fire iridium, and I haven't had any trouble with scratching. I like the changing colour and think that they look extremely cool, especially in the right frame, such as FMJ.
oogie -
I love the look of these lenses! However, I will say that many of the issues below about the color changes from center to the enge of the lens are true. Especially with the large lenses in the Overthetops (of course, the Ruby lens does the same). But I think the overal hue is great and the iridium look on the outside is wicked!
banarno -
Quite a nice soothing lense to look through,but not spectacular.
But most people buy this for what it looks like from the outside.
x-metalman -
Contrary to whatmost people think here, I love these lenses. Not as good as Ruby, but still very flashy. I like the increased contrast to. If you want an attention grabbing lens and can't get Ruby, go with these. They'll do the trick!
dj.MLYT -
These are great lenses. The ones I have in my 1st gen Romeo have a really nice red hue in them and they really do look stunning in the sunlight. They may not be as dark as say ice iridium or 24k iridium, but I really like how much they increase contrast. Green nature looks stunning through Fire Iridium. Only thing that could make these better is a darker tint, which you can find with the Polarized Fire Iridium.
fullback -
I just bought a pair of Fire lenses for the Half Jacket. It is yellowy-gold at the edges with a blot of orange at the centre. There are no red hues anywhere. Advantages: definitely flashy from the outside, looks sick with polished frames. Disadvantages: cost (about $10-$15 more than "regular lenses ie: ice, black, g30, etc ...), makes everything look a dull greenish tan colour when looking through the lenses. Its like looking through murky swamp water. In my opinion, I don't find that contrast is increased with the Fire lens. In fact, its entirely the opposite for me. There is no contrast as the brownish-green tint seems to make everything look drab - but that's just me. Its a compromise between function and aesthetics with this lens. For now, the fire lenses are still on my HJ. I'll take it off once the noveltly of having such an awesome looking lens wears off.
Pander -
Not the best lens to look through. But definetly one of the best te look at. The agressive look and the fact that you can't see the wearers eyes is just awesom! Will give you a lot of attention.
Munkfish -
I quite like these - quite like the tint, and good for standing out when looked at. However, there are better lenses, such as 24k or Gold.
PeaceDivision -
I definitely agree with Dann and others about the tint shifting over the span of the lens, and I think it would be very distracting in a pair of sunglasses.

However fire iridium snow goggles are great! the shifting tint is spread out over a much larger area and isn't too noticeable. They are perfect for super bright days where I have to squint even with a gold iridium lens.

I compared them to my friends black iridium wisdoms and prefer the fire.
idealoakley -
I absolutely love this color combo. It is very bold and eye catching, If you are looking to get noticed....these are for you. They are also very functional as they are dark enough to block out the sun on the brightest days but can still be worn in the evening hours. SWEET, SWEET SHADES!
I FORGOT TO LEAVE A REVIEW.......5 out of 5!!!
Rick -
I was a huge fan of the earlier version of the Fire (circa late-90's). I had the first Plasma/Fire Juliet released in New Zealand and they were awesome. I liked the way things took on a green tone as you looked out your peripheries. I loved the way they looked and looking through them. The more recent releases have been less pleasing to me. I don't know how to exactly explain it but I think the latest Fires show little character.
adrian13 -
looks absolutely amazing. probably one of the most attention-grabbing lenses of all time. blocks out the light but doesn't do much for contrast. Don't really like the greenish-greyinsh hue when i look thru it but c'mon, wearing oakleys isn't jus about blocking out the sun and good vision is it? It's about look crazy cool and not many lenses come close
boxing750 -
Yea looking inside them kinda changes the color but i used them on the green yesturday and they were awesome it made the grass stand out more. And i get so much more attention with them on every1 notices them a lil more than just a reg black lens.
oakwood-jones -
Awesome, awesome lens for true bluebird days. You can stare straight at the sun and not even have to squint. Crisp and super clear. As long as the suns blazing you can't go wrong with the fire lens. Not versitile at all. As soon as the clouds start to roll in you'll lose all definition and will be straining to see. Bad on partly cloudy days, downright horrible in flat light. I'm always baffled when I see people wearing this lens during a snowstorm. If I can hardly see with my hi-blue lens then these fools have got to be one step away from being blind with the fire lens. I give it four stars. Very good for super sunny conditions, very bad for everything else. I'm also not really a fan of the way it looks. A bit too flashy for my tastes.
Sixer -
Would've given it a 5, if it didn't have stress marks on it after only one month. The optometrist sent it back to Oakley and got rid of the stress mark by making it thinner (polished away the stressed-out part?). However, the lens transmission became higher, i.e., it went from very dark sunglasses to barely blocking out any sun. The mirror factor is still there, but people can actually see your eyes at certain angles now, whereas they couldn't before. This is why I gave it a very generous 3.

So to recap:
Before the stress mark: 5
After the stress mark problem was corrected: 3
Ian -
This was my first lens in my goggles. I really like how it performs, but it only works for very bright days. It has a grey base, as opposed to an amber base on the sunglasses, which, in my opinion, makes it infinitely better. I wish goggle-spec fire iridium was used in sunglasses...
stormpeakco -
Agree with the above. I pull out these goggles/lenses on blue bird spring days when it is too bright out skiing with my crowbars/H.I. persimmon (which in my opinion are the best overall lens when cloudy, snowy and with poor definition). I still squint some on the brightest of days and wouldn't purposely view the sun through them. 4+
Feelin' Froggy -
I don't see why most people are down on this lens. I just got my first pair of them in the Hell Edition Frogskins, and I've got to say I love looking through them. I find the greenish tint very pleasing on both bright and overcast days. It's a lot like the Ray Ban G15.

On the outside, the orange is obviously a conversation starter. Looks great w/a matte black frame.

Celicagame -
I was a big fan of this lens when i first got into Oakley. I had them in my straights and half jackets. But as I grew older I preferred more discreet lens colors. I still use then lens for yard work and such because it does offer great protection in Florida days. If there are any down sides to this lens it's that finger prints are easily shown.
Martywright -
Bought this lens as a replacement for my Titanium iri half jacket which had got badly scratched :(
From the outside it looks amazing, but at the edges there is a definate red tint, feels kinda odd, Not sure if I want to wear them cycling. Looks 5, to look through 1 (get titanium or +red)
thisguy -
One of the most reflective lenses that Oakley makes. The outside colors change niceley across the shield version. Looking through them can take a couple minutes to adjust. The colors are muted in a yellowish tone but contrast is increased I feel. Definitely try this lens out before purchasing.
Jason -
I can use it all the day and at night when iam without fell confortable.
o-xide -
If you are not happy with the regular Fire Iridium, get these instead. They scratch really easy but because of it's flashiness...it really complements any frame you wear. Plus it's POLARIZED!
bong -
the polarization works really well with these lenses, cutting the glare dramatically without making things look artificial with cheap polarized lenses. they have a dark, greenish tint and tends to make things a bit monochrome. it's like a mix between a neutral lens and a contrast lens but doesn't do well in either catagory. as for aesthetics though, the highly mirrored deep orange looks really nice.
Wassaaaaaaaaaap -
This gets the same review as the regular fire lenses except that these cut out the glare as well so these get a little higher rating.
oogie -
The Fire Polarized is one of my favorites. I, for one, really like the fire lens and how the tint provides contrasts and softens the colors. Only issue I can think of is that the mirrored effect on my Straight Jacket flames is not as great as the Juliet polished.
dmc -
I bought these as a flashier replacement to the boring black iridium polarized in my carbon Juliets. Well, the looks are certainly spectacular, especially on the dark matte frame, and the yellow/green tint is really effective in contrast enhancement. My only issue is the ghosting that appears when looking at point sources of light on dark backgrounds (e.g., car headlights at dawn/dusk). This isn't uncommon with a lot of lenses, but with fire, it's a crimson red that's really tough to ignore.
Rick -
I think I went into things with a overly optimistic attitude. I thought Polarized lenses were going to be hands down better than non-polarized lenses, but I have yet to see the big fascination. Could be that I don't spend time near water, but I have difficulty understanding why anyone would need or want a Polarized lens for everyday "city" use. The Fire lens and its polarzied cousin do look good when paired with a flashy frame. Recent Fire Iridium lenses have been more orange than in the past.
LEX7 -
This is slightly better than normal fire but not much.
Again it gets dirty alot easier than normal lenses but still makes everything look dull when you look through it, the polarization helps but not much.
Ed -
I know I'm probably in the minority, but I just don't care for orange mirrored lenses. Reds are fine, yellows are fine, but I just don't care for orange. I suppose I wouldn't feel so negative if the base tint was also orange (I like persimmon), but instead it is green, which makes everything look really odd.
banarno -
Quite a nice soothing lense to look through,but not spectacular.
And the polarization cuts down on glare if you are near water.
But most people buy this for what it looks like from the outside.
ACE 87 -
This lens gets you a lot of looks because they are so reflective and its nice that people cant see which way youre looking. Greenish tint is awkward at first but your eyes get used to it and everything actually stays true to color. Really brings out the color of the sky and the trees especially in spring when everything is green. Tint makes other more neutral lens tints seem boring to look through after youve gotten used to them. Iridium coating makes lens one of Oakleys brightest lenses. Color looks very cool in daylight especially when surroudings are bright like the beach. when you wear them on a semi-overcast day the lenses seem to glow.Like how it fades from deep orange to bright yellow green on the sides. Great high contrast lens for fishing and skiing.
Delta One -
I would give these 10 stars, the best lens in my opinion and it does get u plenty of looks, they don't really scratch easily but they do get smudged very easily from touching with fingers and the greenish tint is nice after a rainfall. good quality lens
very heavy mirror finish which is nice for looking at girls or people who need staring at.
UBERCHUCK -
I tried these in a pair of Juliets because they were one of the few polarized colors (I really wish they still had Black Polarized with the Juliets...I'd probably still have these shades.) This is a terrible lens and it's the worst Oakley I have tried so far. I found that there is ghosting on the back of the lens in many lighting conditions. I found it very distracting and it is unacceptable for the cost. I returned these within days. Also they had to ship out two different pairs of Juliets because there was an issue with the frame on the first one. The first pair of lenses that I saw was breathtaking. The second pair's lenses were much darker and not very attractive. Oakley said because of the production process a decent amount of color variation is to be expected.
barbercb -
My eyes do not like these lenses. They gave me a headache. I don't know if it was that they were polarized, or the lens it's self. Everything is a green color, not impressed.
idealoakley -
I love the lenses even more than my regular fire lenses in my FMJ 5.56 frames because of the fact that they are polarized. As far as the frame goes....I like the frame but feel that OAKLEY could have done a better job by offering this lens with the FMJ 5.56 or even making the O on the arms fire orange just for a bit more color. SWEET LENS!!
jumpman73 -
The fire polarized is my most favorite polarized lens out there. I'm not too big of a fan of polarized lenses though. Because of the fire, I will actually use these if I'm in the right mood.
Shujat -
I can't decide on a rating for these lens becuase it depends entirely on the scenario you're in so i'll describe a few.

If you want lens for normal everyday use e.g. In the city then I really don't think coughing up the extra cash for polarized lenses is worth it (although I argue exactly the opposite further down. Just read on to understand.)

I can't say anything about the benefits of polarization if you work on a boat or at the beach because I don't know.

The reason I brought polarized fire iridium lenses was because the color of the fire iridium looks AMAZING on my Juliets and only the polarized option allowed me to get the polished Juliet frame with hammer earstems. I also figured that if I'm going to spend that much on sunglasses, I might as well cough up some more money and go with the absolute best available so in a way the extra cash is worth it(even if it is just to boost your ego)

The fire iridium lens does look flashy but that's the exact reason to get it(on a frame like the Juliet). If you want a more subdued look then buy a pair of aviators. If you want to turn heads, buy a fire iridium lens. I guarantee you won't regret it.

One more thing, when I try and look at an LCD(my ipod) in the sun through the lens, it's actually quite difficult. It's not unreadable but you can see the refracted components of light i.e. the colors of the rainbow. I think its the glass on top of the LCD which refracts the light but the point is, this is a minor annoyance. I don't know if it happens with other lens.
CheeseWeasel -
I have the polarized fire iriduim lenses in my XX. I got them partly becuse they look great, and to be honest partly because they were expensive and I was on an Oakley 50% off Customer Service after my eyejacket 1.0's finally bit the dust.
They dont make the world look as great as Gold Iridium, but the high contrast bluey,greeny gray tint is easy on the eyes.
I have a small scratch on mine after I went though a bush on my bike - but more concerningly, if I look through the lens in the corner by my nose there is a green patch, wether this is because of the polarization or a lesser lens I am not sure. I would struggle to recomend them to a friend, but I still love my own.
teehomer -
Coming from a loyal MauiJim client, I can now say that Oakley has impressed me to the point of purchasing a pair of metallic red Flak Jackets with XLJ Fire Iridium Polarized lenses. Fabulous style and optics. Outstanding contrast and a great variation of polarization. A fresh and welcome change from the unbelievable quality of Maui but with no compromise. All I can say now is that my collection is far from complete.

For those of you who don't understand polarity of light; don't waste your time and money on quality you don't get and style that only bares a name.
OAKLEY4LIFE -
I got these in my Juliet polished frame, and I think they look sick outside in the sun. I have custom smoke gascans with the polarized black iridium and Spike with titanium iridium, and these are my favorite lenses for extremely bright situations
Mike -
Its on my Juliet. Looking at the lens its stunning. However, from the inside and looking through, it turns out I'm not such a fan of the amber base. Would have given it a 3 except for the fact that the polarized is really really useful for all conditions and that this lens can withstand really bright days. 4 stars
monster_beetle -
I took these lenses because of their amazing looks. They just look awesome, plus they are a definate headturner.
I really like the fact that they are polarized, it really takes away the sunglare.

Only problem with these lenses is that scratch very easily. As I am a postman I wear these often when bringing around the post. And well on a gardenpath I went trough some bushes with them... Yes, there were the first scratches. I am still thinking of getting a new pair of lenses to replace the scratched ones, unfortunately they cost pretty some money...
BiGCoB -
I have been offered a pair of Fire Polarized lens mounted on a FMJ Copper pair of Half Jacket (You're awesome guys ^_^)
Although I'm not a big fan of the greenish base tint, I admit that they are very comfortable for the sunniest days. Very flashy from the outside with an Orange/yellow Iridium, they are a little bit more boring from inside due to the amber base (a matter of taste).
Funny to notice : the "Polarized" etching seems to be under the Iridium treatment o_O ...
TERRORISM -
Polarized Fire features the amber base-color of its Fire counterpart, but adds the benefit of polarization. Likewise, it seems better suited for medium light or even overcast conditions than for bright light. My biggest concern with this lens, however, is the lack of manufacturing consistency. When done properly it appears to be a "blaze orange", but unfortunately Oakley has become lazy with their QC, resulting in a washed-out, yellowish "Fire" lens for many batches.
Wookieman -
I'm torn on this lens. I got a set of these for my flaks. I like the way it looks on the outside and there is a nice amber color when looking throught them, but the colors seem to change from amber to greenish as you get to the edge. Maybe it's because of the thick iridium coating. I use them, but they bug me out if I wear them for a long time. I find myself reaching for my VR28 Black Iridium Polarized, and my Gold Iridium Polarized for my flaks a lot more.
eh wtf oakley -
These lense were sold on the solid designed grayish/silver w/black sleeves through sunglass retailer and every pair that this particular outlet (not Oakley affiliated) had these HDO Fire Iridium Polarized lense cause a ghost image with brighter light sorces such as oh say a set of tail lights on a car, glare in the sunlight, or any bright lighting area. I don't know if this distributer got a bad batch or what but if you notice this problem they tell you to take it up with Oakley for replacement. If you do end up with these defective lense and wish to keep the frames I recommend getting plain gray tint chome coated polarized without the inner HDO in coating. I didn't make them so I couldn't tell you how every single one of these lenses are f*n waste of time and money. Try before you buy, look at a bright light source and see if you notice light trailings. Not saying all this to berate awesome design, just a problem I came across. I am shopping for a comfortable pair of RX driving sunglass frames and these I would highly recomend. Light, good fit, and not too much pressure point strain.
Oaklaholic -
I bought these and was not a fan...maybe I was used to the gray lens line, but these just did not please me at all. I have a set of polarized ice iridium, polarized black iridium, and I guess it's maybe just my bland style, but the amber with the green just does not please me one bit. The outside looks really nice, but looking through them makes me want to take them off right away. I think it just depends on your personality...
ucdavisboy -
This lens is one of those love/hate lenses and I want to say nobody is really "on the fence" when it comes to this lens...but I'm probably on of them.

First off, I don't wear anything but polarized lenses; once you use Oakley Polarized, you cannot go back to normal; its like watching HD TV and then being told to go back to SD TV. What is the advantage of Pol away from water? Every glare, glint, reflection off: pavement, windows, cars, signs, buildings, etc. etc. etc. is cut down to nothing. The Pol process cleans up everything so well, that your vision is actually BETTER with them on, than with them off.

Now as for this Fire: I like the lens, I like the look more than I like the performance. This is probably Oakley's best iridium because it provides the best reflections on the outside. That really heavy iridim coating is, however, why the lenses seem to get dirty and scratch so easily so it is one of the more high maintenance finishes. If you bang your Oakley's around, don't get it, but if you are like me and "if not on your face than in the case" then you should be fine.

Looking through this lens, to me, is a nice change up from the neutral tones of Black Iridium and Ice Iridium with the advantage of a Polarized option (will someone PLEASE explain why Ruby is NOT made in a Polarized option?????? considering 15% transmission and no polarization in the summer sun of California=blindness). Oh...and this lens should NOT be purchased in its normal version; this is a lens with borderline performance in the light filtering dept., and without the added light filtration and glare reduction of the Polarization, everything looks washed out with the normal lens.

This lens is probably not the best lens for a city enviornment, but it works and after awhile you adjust to how different the tint is from the neutral lenses....you really forget about it when the lens turns heads.

To me, this is more a vanity lens than a functional lens and is only servicable in the Polarized variant. Its worth the cost if you want a particular color combo and don't want another black, blue or dull VR28 tint in your collection. That being said, it limits you to the sport lines Oakley makes and puts you in the just under to just over $200 range which probably means unless you LOVE IT and can't get enough of it, you may just want one.
Pastie Man -
After having several pairs of Oakley Sunglasses and Goggles from working in the Mountains in France and on the boats in the Med I Bought a pair of Hijinx in matt black with POLARIZED LENSES. I had only worn them a handful of times when I noticed a few small SCRATCHES appear.
I was a little disapointed as i hardly wear them and had thought I had been super careful looking after them. A few months later I noticed this had become worse and the laquer on the frames was starting to bubble. I decided that for $249.00 this was not good enough and sent them off to be looked at by "customer service". I was offered the option of a reduced price replacement pair which would then take the cost up to $339.00 in total for one pair of plastic glasses. I thought that this was too much and opted to get them beck and carry on regardless. Another six months has passed and they have deteriorated badly. I was told by customer services in Torquay Australia, how there is no coating in the process and the scratches etc were down to my carelessness. If you see the lenses now you can clearly see a bubbling of a coating all over the lenses especially around the edge of the lenses and across the word "polarized' which is written on the bottom of the lense. Added to this bubbling are small spots uniformly all across both lenses. These marks show up in your line of vision clearly and are now worthless.

I strongly advise anyone thinking of buying Oakley Polarized lenses to avoid them like the plague and get yourself a standard pair, Ideally unpainted. Oakley are still making a profit on replacement pairs and this is not acceptable for the price we pay. I am going to gt in touch with Oakley in America and see what there view is. I hope it is better than mine.

Very disapointed!
Pure275 -
One of the other reviewers on here commented on the "orange blaze" look of the Fire Iridium and how Oakley's QC had gone lazy and was resulting in a washed-out yellow look...I really think that change was deliberate. I have had Fire Iridium lenses that I feel look too orange when I expected it to be more yellow. I must not have been the only one observing this if in fact there has been a mass change to a more "yellow" finish.

Other users/reviewers have commented on how they scratch easily. I haven't noticed that and I've owned (and still own) some Fire Iridium models. I think the "scratching" may be a combination of heavy use and the fact that Fire Iridium has a higher reflectivity that makes any smudging or even miniscule scratches more noticeable. Considering all the money I've spent on Oakleys over the years, I have consigned myself to the fact that any pair I wear constantly will be my beater pair until the scratches are so bad, or I get so bored, that I'll go out and spend more money to get a different pair. I always offset my purchase by selling the used pairs on eBay, so I don't end up that much in the hole with each purchase.
BriP -
Polarisation is great! but the amber base, im not a fan of.. very washed out color when looking through. would have been alot better with a bronze base instead, which would boost contrast.

all being said, really cool finish. recently they have been getting less orange, and more yellow. i think this was to seperate it from the Ruby, which have been getting less red, and more orange! some current Ruby's are dead identical to fire iridiums from the outside! the only giveaway is the Blue base in ruby lenses compared to the amber of Fire.

still a decent all rounder but nothing special..

Frame: Algae
Lens: Gold

I was mad because I bought the new Frogskins before I heard about these. Cheetah was cool looking but I went with Algae. Basically a crystal green. It was kinda like paying homage to the Fuel Jacket. A great wear for a summer. You could tell you were wearing a smaller frame, catching it in you peripheral every now and then. No breakage though. First style in a while to not periodically break. Boxy arms and very flexible.

Frame: Crystal Black
Lens: Black Iridium

Fives are possibly the best fitting Oakley's I've worn. I think they are probably an ideal shape if you have a high bridge on your nose, as they have a wide nose gap and hug the forehead closely. The frames look pretty cool and although perhaps not the most innovative or modern of Oakley's designs, they still look great today.

Frame:White Tiger
Lens:Black Iridium

I loved the look of these glasses and especially the frame colour but I hated the fit, they were tiny so not for those of you with big heads or big faces.
they are are very old skool fit, rigid not a wraparound so not good for sport.
I would love oakley to bring back this frame colour but not the glasses.

Just got another pair of these after having sold my pair last year. the frame colour was just too cool and rare to pass up. i had to add it to my collection.

These were my first Oakley's. Loved em. I would give them a five, but they lacked the features. But, they're cheap and durable, with great clarity and field of vision. I used these when I was a tennis instructor, and they took a beating.

Frame: Crystal Blue
Lens: Black Iridium
I was pretty pissed with myself when I left these in a movie theater. I was surprised how much light the frame blocked. But, in bright sun, they will leak in light through the frame. But, like my other pair, they were pretty much indestructable. The iridium lenses improve the rating.

Frame: Rootbeer
Lens: Gold Iridium

The only glasses that fit me. Others are much too wide they don't stay close to my face. I just love the lens, it makes the greens comee out so when ever your looking at a park or just your yard it really makes it stand out.Very sober in 5 years they won't look outdated.

Frame: Tortoise
Lens: Gold Iridium

These Fives seem to be one of the better designed frames for those with small heads. They're a little small for me but they're my friend's and since she's barely 5' tall, they're perfect for her and she looks great in them. She's had them for almost five years and likes them so much that when one of the earstems broke, she had Oakley ship her a new set. So while they're small for me, if she was writing this she'd be writing raves.

Great glasses. Classic styling and plenty of colors to choose from (some crazier than others!). Sadly for me, my noggin is simply too big to really wear this style. But for those with "normal" or small heads, I'm sure you'd look spiffy. I do like the dimple look along the earstems, though.

Frame: Black
Lens: Grey
A classic design from Oakley these were a big hit when first released.
There was a huge range of colour options so you could either be conservative, or go for a more cool/funky combination that changed the look of the sunglass.
Lenses are Easily popped in/out so you could buy new lenses, or just customise to change you mood.
Quite a small design, so they released a slightly bigger version (TENS) for larger faces.

Frame: White Tiger
Lens: Black Iridium

In my quest to collect the odd colorways that Oakley thought of, I was able to score this White Tiger variant. It's a bit grainy when you look close, but fine otehrwise. The fit is very small, so I can only imagine the Four S's. The Fives 2.0's seem a little bigger and better made, but this pair is a nice piece of O history.

Definately a classic. They are still pretty good looking considering the direction the sunglasses world has gone.

My frame color/lense color definately do not offer the appropriate amount of sun protection, but they definately are nice to wear around the house if it's sunny out and your blinds are down.

Sturdy frames and decent coverage are also great on top of the price point.
DoctorCrip -
Frame: Algae, Black
Lens: Emerald Iridium, Grey

A very solid pair of sunglasses. I had these in high school and they served me quite well - until I lost them like an idiot. Anyway, they were very well made and they had a very good look and feel to them. Even without any Unobtainium, they stayed on my (rather large) head quite well due to the snug fit - but not so snug that they were at all uncomfortable. I also liked the dimples all along the rear two-thirds or so of the ear stems, which might have helped as well. The glasses certainly had that Oakley look to them, but they definitely weren't all that flashy. In retrospect, I wish I had gone with a "nicer" colorway, but like I said I was in high school, so money wasn't something that I had all that much of. However, the difference between mine at $60 and the Crystal Black/Black Iridium at $70 isn't all that much, so I don't know what I was thinking. I guess I'll just chalk it up to inexperience, but more so to me being a cheap moron.

These are a great, low cost pair...much like the original Frogskins. Suggested by the name, the FIVES are much like smaller versions of the tens. While the lenses and frames appear to be small, they fit well on my larger face, and provide good coverage. The gold lens is a great look, and the translucent nature of the frames is very cool.

My first pair of O's. Saved up and bought them my junior year of High School. I loved them then. Looking back they were probably too small, (now I rock the Monster Dogs) but you never forget your first. A very classic look and very comfortable. The O-matter around the lens everntually broke, probably shouldn't have left them in the car in 100 degree heat. A

I got these way back in the day. Got swapped lenses with the lenses from the Persimmon pair. Used these on cloudy days. Very light weight. Good wrap. Works well inside a motorcycle helmet. Small by today's lens size standards, it provided plenty of coverage none the less.

OK to start lets say these are some of the best non SI glasses ive bought, most i buy for military service but i saw these on the net and liked the way they looked, well all i have to say as that they hold onto the face real well in extreme conditions as much or more than my M Frames or Half Jackets. the overall structure of the frames is simple and well it works, easy to use easy to take off easy to clean, all around a great pair of glasses.

Frame: Persimmon / FMJ 9mm
Lens: Persimmon / Black iridium

Nice snug-fitting frames, surprisingly good fit for me given the lack of unobtainium. The style might be a little small for some faces - For some reason my FMJ pair feels a bit tighter fit than the Persimmon one. They feel better proportioned than the New Frogskins which are too big. The Persimmon/Persimmon style looks still looks pretty crazy and immediately takes me back to the late 90s. The crystal orange frames look great with the black iridium lenses swapped into them too.

Frame: Crystal Black
Lens: Black

This was my first pair and what got me addicted to Oakley. I still have it, sadly with some scratches. And it still looks very good and modern. While the Minute, Eye Jacket, old Straight Jacket and so on look a bit 90s, the Five still looks up-to-date.

The Crystal Black is also a very nice frame colour. On the first glance it is just a very versatile black frame that fits to everything and is not too loud. But if you look closer it stays interesting. You see how everything works in the mechanism. It sometimes looks a bit green or blue depending on the light.

I also like the holes on the earstems. Looks very good. The Oakley icon is printed in white onto the frame and it is still there after nearly 15 years.

Black Iridium is THE Oakley lens if you would have to choose only one. It's very neutral to look through, completely mirrored and offers perfect protection.

Just found this page with the help of Oakley CSR. I still have these sunglasses and I got them in 1997 after working all summer for them! The paint has chipped a bit and the lenses have scratches, but they are still my favorite pair of SG ever. They fit my small head perfectly and have lasted 15 years. Sadly, I may have to take advantage of the trade up program I was offered.

Lens: VR28 Black

I was pleased with the first Fives for a short while but this pair is just that much nicer. The frame has been cut down to a slimmer form with a sharper edge around the lens orbitals. Very flexible/springy, incredibly light. I was glad to get this pair when I did. Oakley doesn't make that many styles in crystal red and the VR28 Black lens is terrific with a amber/bronze color. I love the silver "O" accent instead of gold.

I agree...i like it a lot..very light and simple but cool design...the frame though touches my skin in the face and nose gap is wider which is not that ideal for asians but overall i still like it a lot... i prefer the old five though on how the "O" logo was made.

I love them. It took me a while to get the "oakley" on the nose-bridge gone, but without them they look much better (thats why I'm searching for a matte black/vr28 pol). And try to get rootbeer or tortoise with emerald lenses - it looks so awesome. It is funny that they cost more on ebay than in a store or a online store.

Frame: Matte Black
Lens: VR28 Polarized

I don't use these nearly as much as my other Oakleys. I love the lenses and think that is a great combination of the increased contrast of the VR28 combined with reduced reflections. They don't quite fit me right. Depending on how I place them on my face I can feel my eyelashes touch the lenses. Weird but the only pair of sunglasses I own that it happens with. Still a nice pair overall.

Frame: Butterscotch
Lens: Fire

Evolution of the Fives resulted in the next-generation Frogskin: the Fives 2.0. With an even more trimmed, honed, and aerodynamic architecture than the originals, the glasses still held true to their forerunners by maintaining an overall simple design. The earstems also compared to those of the Fives, featuring numerous "indentations", almost resembling a "grate" effect. True metal icons help distinguish this pair from the originals, however, and the color combination of Butterscotch/Fire grabs attention from a quarter-mile away. Still, a simple pair of shades made of o-matter without unobtainium.

Nice O-Matter frames, Gold Iridium accents the rootbeer well. A little small for my big dome, but snug enough not to fall off. Loaned them to a buddy and haven't seen'em since, lol. He loves'em more than I and I did owe him one. Probably better for people with smaller faces.

I just got the SI frames. They're not the coolest or most stylish frames, but that's what I like, in this case. Very simple, light, and serve their purpose.

Same story with the minutes.The glasses themselves are great.The desing is 100% totally good old time oakley,and they really make a statement.But they were very small for me,even smaller that the minutes,so in the next day I exchanged them with another pair of my dearly beloved straight jackets!Anyway,they would have been good if I just kept them for the sake of the collection,but why not have a pair that I can wear it as well?Still I give them a five sculls because they remind me of those good old times.

Frame: Brown Smoke
Lens: Dark Bronze

A good entry-level Oakley. This incarnation of the Five line incorporates the square-ish lens shape and finned earstems that are so prevalent in Oakley's styling these days. It is lightweight and stylish without being too radical.

Unfortunately, the nosebridge area is rather thin, so these sit very close to my face, and the bottoms of the orbitals tend to sit on my cheeks. Nothing unbearable, but I can't wear these for long periods of time. This is mainly due to my Asian nose, although other O-Matter frames do have thicker nosebridges that fit better. Also, the earstems have very little curvature, so grip is minimal, especially if you put your glasses on top of your head when you go indoors.

The Brown Smoke frame is yet another nice crystal O-Matter color. I like this variation of brown much more than some of the others such as Polished Rootbeer or Dark Amber. The Dark Bronze lens is a good basic tint for folks that enjoy increased contrast.
B3 -
Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Grey (Ducati)

These are by far one of my favorite pairs of Oakleys. I've tried on other Fives 3.0, and they are not near the quality of my Ducati pair. The earstems wrap on my smaller sized head perfectly, giving a light weight comfortable fit. If I plan on wearing shades for a long period of time, more often than not I grab these.
dan-E -
Frame: Crystal Blue
Lens: Black Iridium

Finally got to try these on and found out they're definitely made for smaller heads. That said, they base curve isn't that sharp has other models and the fit itself was snug but comfortable. The only reason I say that it's made for smaller heads is that the squarish design looks very narrow on my face. Still, the look, which resembles a Monster Doggle left in the dryer too long is attractive and the Crystal Blue frame is beautifully done. A good frame and a great value.

I loved these at first, but once I got more full-coverage frames like the Spike, I fell out of love.

The crystal black is definately more of a green-ish, and the coverage is fine, but I dont like seeing the frame as I wear them.

They could use some unobtanium as well. They slide down every so often on my nose, and it can be quite annoying.

Great price point though.

Brown Smoke would be my choice, only cuz it's an awesome looking color. I like how this is an extension of the Five line, but incorporatng new aspects of Oakley's current designs. The BottleCap earstems and the GasCan front make for a cool combo.
kingphilbert -
Frame: Crystal Blue
Lens: Black Iridium

The lowest price point is still massively impressive for style and fit. This round we are treated to a pair just a small percentage larger than it's predecessor and just a slightly looser fit due to a lessening of curve in the stems. Oakleys new edgier/angular style for frames has lent itself well to this style and the sqaure lenses are a treat. A great starter pair or a great accompanying pair to go with your entire collection that's sure to find use.

I have to say these are my favorite O Matter frames, I had someone help me lose a set of customs that had the blue O's so I got another because I liked them so much (minus the blue O's).

I love the amount of coverage that is offered by these, and it is accomplished without being overly large. I have a small head and I did not realize how nice these were until I had to wear my old Minutes agian! The custom ones are by far better because the arms have more of a curve for a better fit without sticking out behind my head. I accually got rid of the dark gray ones because of the straighter arms that came on them.

Great pair at a great price. It's ncie to have a pair come out and not break you at retail price. The crystal blue is a vibrant color which shines nicely and is not like the crystal blue on the Five 2.0, which is very dark, almost black when wearing. Th color is actually lifted of a Dragon frame color called Liquid Jewel. This has become one of my daily pairs, so I forsee a lot of use.

Love these, the first Five i can actually wear. these have a much much larger fit than the other to and have a decent lens coverage aswell. no unobtanium so not the best glasses to be worn in the water or while your sweating. i can see myself getting another pair of these cos they come in some very cool combos.

I bought these as a daily pair, since i'm out on the road everyday, If i was to loose them no big loss, buut since owning them it would be a huge loss. The Cinder Red color is totally amazing dark enough to look black but throw it into the light and it jsut sparkles red. The grey lens is simple but it suits me for driving and the varying weather conditions I can face o a day to day basis. They are light and never cumbersome to waer. Overall - looks brilliant, feels brilliant and doesn't hurt the budget. Possibly the most practical frame Oakley does. A+

I think O has really improved the Five design and fit for the 3.0. It has a much more universal fit for those with med-large heads, but still retains the reduced look to fit possibly the widest range of head sizes/shapes of most any O. Great styling and decent colors to choose from. I love this blue/black colorway ... even if the crystal blue frame is a bit of a visual annoyance when wearing them.
BrianJ1888 -
Frame: Crystal Blue
Lens: Black Iridium

Okay, so I went out and got the Blue ones, cuz they were so beautiful in person. A superb color. Anyway, they fit me great.

I've got a smallish head, but I wear anything up to the MD's. The orbitals fit just like my Hatchets do, tight up to my eyesockets. I push my glasses all the way back, up to the bridge of my nose though. When they're open, they feel great. Light, but not flimsy. Like the older generations of the Five, I believe the earstems to be the weakest link. They flex a lot. But that means they'll fit bigger heads. With the arms closed, I think they're a little on the loose side, but I think the Bottlecap-ish arms make me expect the locking cams.

Would get 5 stars if not for the perception of fragility.

Not that you need a small head in order for these to fit, but they do seem to fit a wide variety of head sizes. This will ensure they sell well.

Absolutley beautiful color combination. Picked these up for another girl I work with. They appeal to people who are a little more on the conservative side since the tortoise pattern is not a huge departure from traditional frame patterns. Combine this with a high-quality polarized lens and you have yourself a great pair of shades for a pretty decent price. The Fives 3.0 is a great way for someone to step out of the ordinary but not so much that they feel too "over the top".

Reall cool design and lightweight. The only problem I had with them was they didn't fit my head very well. I have a big head and that part of the shades actually fit well. The part that didn't fit was the nose area. I'm Filipino and have a flat face so these didn't sit very well on my nose.

Talk about "Bang for the Buck". This Scelzi edition sports a beautiful ruby lens and a colorful red icon. They don't break the bank and the fact that they are a limited edition adds a bit to the overall appeal of these. Light and comfortable. Suits men and women, can't really go wrong with these. Call Hollie at the Rolling-O because they won't be around forever. Better yet, pick them up at the races from the actual Rolling-O showroom.

Almost everythin has been said - it looks like a small gascan and feels like a small gascan. The design is nothing special and stems are very straight so they fit/sit very loose. That's why I don't think that the fives has the bottlecap stems... the bottlecap fits great (and that without unob!)!
BUT they are cheap and durable. So... 3/5 is a positive rating.

A new classic design from Oakley, these seem to be a big hit when first released.

Quite a small design, so they are ideal for small faces.

Out of all the oakleys I come to own or tried on. These are one of the cheapest quality O's I've come acrossed so far. But you definitely have to look at the price tag.

Overall, I think these are a nice, dressier version of the Oakley line. However, I rarely wear mine for one reason.

Got these yesterday as an unannounced gift from my girlfriend. I've only had a handful of sunglasses I look good in and my last Os were about 20 years ago.

These make me look like a rockstar and I think they're awesome. I'm stunned that she picked ones that look so good on me. They fit closer to my face than most glasses and are super light. I wouldn't want the frame to be any smaller.. right on the edge of being a tiny bit too small but not quite. Color is great, clarity and image sharpness stellar.

They don't feel cheap at all to me. They're the lightest pair of sunglasses I have but the fit and finish are excellent. They're not for driving because the frame blocks some peripheral vision. I'm an average sized white male brown hair light complexion. Very happy with them.

Frame: Brown Tortoise
Lens: Bronze Polarized

These are a good, very basic, very conservative pair of glasses. They are light and fit me well, but feel a little cheap. The "pixelated" finish of the tortoise finish looks ok from a distance, but very synthetic up close. The lens coverage is pretty good, but not great. The lenses themselves are a very functional tint, good for driving and overcast, but lacking in the looks department.

For me these will make a good pair to throw in the glove box (in a soft case) for driving and just in case purposes. The points docked are for blandness, and "cheap" feeling frame.
EGSTR -
Frame: Crystal Black
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized

I found these for $50 and couldn't pass up the deal. The glasses cost me less than Oakley's website was charging for the lenses alone.

First the pros: The lenses are great, very dark. On a sunny day it doesn't get any better. They are also a life saver on snowy days. You can never see my eyes. They look good and I've gotten several compliments, despite being relatively innocuous for Oakleys. They are comfortable and seem durable as well. Despite the lack of Unobtainium, they never fall off or slide.

Now for the cons: I can always see the frame and there is a small window of no coverage where they rest on my nose. My cheeks constantly hit the bottom of the frame. The lenses are so dark that I often have to take the glasses off to read on the bus.

Overall, this pair of glasses was well worth the money, but far from perfect.

My previous comments on this frame still apply, except I like this colorway better. The Crystal Black is a sweet frame color, and the Black Ir. Polar lenses are sweet. Overall a better looking version of these than my first pair (Brown Tortoise/Bronze Polar), so I'll bump them up 1 skull to a 4.

They are very comfortable too! IMHO it's the best genuine Oakley custom I've ever owned! These are my specials!

I got these as a pair for my girlfriend a while ago. They were we first pair and she fell in love with them (they were custom). They're still her favorite pair (even after her using the SI Flaks and Pockets). They're a great active pair for a casual day out with friends. Nice basic introductory pair!

MUCH larger nosepieces, almost look a bit silly. These fit much nicer on me than the regular Fives 3.0, however they still seem loose on my head. I have this problem with either pair that if I look down at something they'll fall right off - very easily.

I wouldn't have these high on the priority list unless you just absolutely love the look of course. I'd spring for the Asian Fit Gascan well before these.

Frame: Cinder Red
Lens: G30 Titanium

A vast improvement in fit for those of us with Asian or otherwise flatter noses compared to the regular Fives 3.0. These sit high enough on my nose and far enough from my face that the bottom of the frame stays away from my cheeks. Also, these have the now standard earstems that curve inward at the rear to increase grip, unlike some of the early production runs of the regular fit that had very straight stems that would allow the glasses to slide.

Fives in general are great entry-level glasses or simply lower-cost alternatives to the pricier styles that still offer the fit, features, and quality one expects from Oakley. The square-ish lens shape fits the current trend but has somewhat softer edges and cleaner lines than other models (e.g. Gascan, Canteen)to fit a wider range of faces.

Cinder Red is a dark metallic red that really sparkles in the sun. It reminds me of the old Blood or Redline used on Straight Jackets and Eye Jackets. G30 Titanium takes the usual pinkish base tint and combines it with a faint silver mirror (and TITANIUM etching, of course). The result is a fantastic lens that is good for anything from slight overcast to bright sun. It goes well with the Cinder Red frame without being too feminine so all of us manly men can still pull it off.

These are awesome. Im not asian but i have a smaller skinnier jead but a pronounced nose bridge so the oversized nosepiece fits me perfect. The normal 3.0's have the starighter ear stems and are too loose on my face. The curveture of the asian fit stems are a huge improvement. Kudos... five skulls.

Frame: Cinder Red
Lens: G30 Titanium Iridium

Being asian, this is my first pair of Asian Fit Oakley. Fits me perfectly. the thickened nosepieces, curved earstems and narrower bridge is a vast improvement over the non-Asian Fit versions. I have medium face and it fits me perfectly. I must say that not all Oakley Asian Fit models fits my face. I guess the same goes with others. Ordered a pair of Gascan Asian Fit but they were too tight for me above the ears. having them on really gives me headaches. I'll be staying away from Gascans (asian fit).

The cinder red color is quite unique. the G30 lenses are superb in low to medium light conditions but still OK in slightly bright sunlight.

The only issue with Asian Fit frames, being in the U.K., is warranty. Oakley U.K., unfortunately, do not carry out warranty (repairs, frame replacement and lens replacement) on Asian fit models.

In all, if it's not for issues of warranty in the U.K on asian fit models, i'll give mine 4 skulls.

These are great! These are truly made to fit Asian faces. The nosepiece is much bigger and the bridge seems a little more narrower than the regular fit. It also wraps much better and doesn't slide off of my head. These are well worth the money!

Ok, here is the deal. These guys basicly move the Fives line slightly back toward a wrapped/aerodynamic look. Think of it as more Minute 2.0 influence on the Fives 3.0/Fives Squared. We just got these in my store, and the box reads "Fives 4.0"

Without a doubt a Twenty/Five 2.0 feel to it. I love the look(probably for medium and small faces) and hope Oakley offers more colorways. I'd love the Silver Text but can't tolerate polarization. a pefect fit for me and they seem much more "solidly" made than the Five 3.0 or Squared

These have become my new beater pair. Oakley have really gone back to their wraparound days with these. Up close they seem a little cheap but from a distance they look a million bucks. Good fit for medium faces and they have excellent coverage. I hope to god they bring out some neat colourways. Black and grey frames are ok for some models but others NEED vibrancy. Bring em on!!!!

Frame: Black w/ Silver text
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized

This is the true successor of the Fives line. Now that the 3.0 has unceremoniously morphed into the the Fives Squared it is easy to see that that the square orbitals and stylized side put that frame in better company with the Gascan and the Canteen.

Now we have a new frame that steps in to jettison us into the second decade of the 21st century. Its lines are modern yet clean enough to remain classic. When set next to the original or the 2.0 it is easy to how it drew influence from these classics yet took them to new levels of artistry. When placed on the head it retains the fit and feel of the original; slightly larger than the 3.0. It serves its purpose in Oakley's lineup to fit those with smaller facial geometry, but still manages to fit my medium-large cranium comfortably. This incredibly lightweight frame allowed this unabashed Monster Dog and Hijinx wearer to reclaim his first love. The MD and Hijinx will surely not stay in the drawer for long, but when the days activities call for a piece of mad science not quite so bold the Fives 4.0 will make many appearances.

The silver text is subtle yet adds just enough to break from the monotony of an all black frame. Of course the lens clarity and glare blocking ability of Oakley HD polarization are unparalleled. The wrap and rake of the lens provides excellent coverage with a minimal amount of light peeking in from the bottom.

Dare I be the first to say it, Oakley has done it again.

That's a very nice combination, not too loud, but interesting enough to be not boring. The Five 4.0 is still looking and fitting good. All Five generations were a nice and evolutionary design and a good effort by Oakley. Unlike the ugly and not true to the original Eye Jacket 2.0 and 3.0.

Although I prefer the Five Squared now, the Five 4.0 has more interesting color combinations.

These are very cool. Remind me of the older Five's. I don't know if it's just been my recent acceptance/movement to the larger frames, but these look small. They also don't fit my Asian face that well. I think that it's just due to the fact that they're small and curve just a tad bit too soon, making the far left and far right edges near the arms touch my eye lashes. This is unfortunate, and hope Oakley will get another Asian set out! Other than that, these have a very sleek and clean design and feel. Just wish they fit better.

Although not due out on the website until early January, I got a chance to try these on today. They are very lightweight and comfortable. They are almost identical to the Fives 3.0 except that in my opinion these have a far better fit. They wrap around more than their predecessor and the addition of the Square O icon makes it even nicer. In my opinion the best part of the sunglass is on the arm. Instead of merely writing Fives Squared, Oakley wrote (4+1) with a 2 in superscript.

I love these glasses! I just bought them last week and so far have very much enjoyed them. They are surprisingly light weight and the lenses are very clear and crisp to look through and have just the right amount of tint. Also, I love the way they look (the square O is very cool as well). Finally, they are very affordable (although I wish I had the extra money to fork out for the polarized lenses). My only complaint is that they feel a little loose on my face...although I think this is just an illusion due to them being so light weight. They also seem to be VERY durable...the guy at SGH where I bought them gave me a demo of how durable they were on a display model - he nearly bent them in half, popped out the lenses and slid them across the counter, popped off the arms; and they were totally fine! This is my first pair of Oakleys (I used to wear Smith's) and I think it's safe to say that I am sold on Oakleys for life! By the way...very helpful site here, I relied on it heavily when making my choice of which pair to buy, thanks for all the help1 and great reviews!

Frame: Black
Lens: Light Grey Polarized
SKU: 03-445J (Japan Fit)

Managed to get my hands on one of these last week. So far, i'm very pleased. I have a medium small head. Getting a pair of oakleys that fit me well isn't easy. tried on quite many models but only the Four S and Fives (3.0 and Squared) are the only two that fit me perfectly.

With this model, the frame and ear stems with raised and thickened nose pads are somewhat similar to the Fives 3.0 black/light grey polarized 12-757J (asian fit). Great fit for small to medium faces with asian features. The width across the widest distance of the ear stems suits me perfectly. i would say that the fit is just a little bit better than what i get from the Fives 3.0 (asian fit). Strangely, without the UNOBTAINIUM, the fit is really firm.

I'm a little disappointed with the lens options available on the Fives Squared/3.0. they seemed to be very limited on both the non-polarized and polarized versions. The lens on this model is great for overcast days but not for days when the sun is shining. Color wise, it's definitely on the boring side.

In all, i'll give it 5 skulls considering the great frame. i'll just have to order some replacement lenses from Okley to replace the original "boring" ones.

Frame: Matte Black Ducati
Lens: Black Iridium (standard)

This is just a quick review on this great frame. The Fives Square are an excellent value for the amount of higher design features you get crammed into a smaller, but well accomidating frame size. They may appear basic and small, but when you look closer at them, there is a huge amount of detail which is usually reserved for the higher priced frames. From the lower orbital spoilers, to the sporty line details on the earstems and the slightly embossed icons, these glasses are a great 'starter' frame for anyone who is looking to purchase their first, lower cost pair. They also feature a flak-jacket sized nosebridge bulge. These are also great for those of us who are self-aware about wearing high style or agressive frames to the workplace..these have style and lots of subtle agressiveness which most people aren't going to notice. Best of all, if you don't like the stock lenses, you can buy just about any colored lens you want and customize. They fit medium-large heads without looking stretched at the sides. Get them,you will get lots of compliments.

Lens: VR-28 Black Iridium Polarized

These frames are very comfortable and lightweight. It almost feels like they aren't even on. They look like they were designed for fashion but feel like they were made for sports. Visibility is only slightly obstructed as I'm sure it is with any O-matter frame, but my other Oakleys are Radars so I'm comparing apples to oranges. I really like the rootbeer frames. They almost look too light when you're holding them but when they are up against your face they appear almost black. The square logos look really cool too... especially in red.

My head is a little large for these but I still love them! If you have trouble finding sunglasses that look good on you because your face is too narrow, these are probably the answer.

I got these from the OCP range at the Vault in Orlando about 2 1/2 years ago now as I wanted a change from my MD's. Smaller fitting but I love them. Arms seam a little flimsy / loose but it appears that's how they are. Loved the way the frame sets off the fire lenses. Loved them that much that I got a pair of the Crystal Black / Black Iridium for my wife from the O store in the Florida Mall.

I ordered these because they were the darkest lenses Oakley makes. They are fantastic. Totally clear, and totally dark. Yet, I can see more than most off-the-shelf dark lenses. It is quite amazing. The frames are solid, light, and fit just right, very comfortable with little light leakage. I am glad I got the matte black, much more subdued than the shiny black. Next I may get the special Ducati edition (matte black with red oakley logo) for my lighter night lenses. Highly recommended.

These are by far the best in the Fives line. At first, none of them seemed to work on me. I tried on a few colors, and I just didn't like them. I bought my wife's friend one of the SI pairs for uniform glasses for her ambulance, and I happened to try them on again and really liked them. I don't know why my tastes changed literally overnight. Then I got the "Zebras". They're sweet. They're unique enough for people to either stare or ask questions about them, and cheap enough that you wouldn't fret too much if you lost them. Either way, they're a keeper. I have a big head, and they still fit well. I recommend them to anyone.

Frame: R00tbeer
Lens: Br0nze

Wow, I FINALLY got a pair of Fives Squared, the best in the Fives lineup so far, AND a colorway that I really like (goes well with both formal and informal outfits). So what can I say, these have to be pretty decent Oaks for me to want one for years (to add to the reasonably-sized collection). So despite its slight quirks/flaws, to me it still deserves 5 skulls.

The Review: Very lightweight, sits fairly comfortably on my nose (nose bridge portion doesn't fit Asian noses that perfectly), Very cool "squared" look treatment for the lens orbitals, on not just the square icons (kinda looks a little like the new Oakley X-Squared, which is awesome). I just love the colorway of Rootbeer on Bronze (last I had one on a Canteen) and you could just wear those for hours and hours. The sizing runs a little wide as I think it's meant for medium heads, not snug at all for my small-medium head (both bad and good). Wearing it like a hairband on the top of my head (a requirement for most of my Oakleys) is as precarious as wearing a Juliet (although if a Juliet drops to the hard ground like that, it's like $300 fluttering off a high storey building, never to be seen again)...

Bad part about the Fives is that the O-matter feels like cheap plastic... and the hinges are somewhat flimsy too… but they are lightweight. I was looking and wondering that I probably wouldn't pay full price for them (got them for $50). The gold square-O icons on the sides however top off an outstanding combination. So if it sounds like I'm feeling conflicted, well there are flaws, it not being up there with the rest of the Oakley staples, but the Fives Squared deliver on what they are and are one heck of a purchase nonetheless. Go get one in your fav colorway.

These are the best Oakleys I ever bought! My favorite! Simple, durable and the it "hugs" my face perfectly. It would be great that the next models or versions be little bigger. Very affordable but classy in design. Love the nose-bridge, ear stems and the square logos and the writings underneath the stems.

My only complaint... this is my 3rd pair of Fives Squared (excluding the previous Fives models). I noticed that my new Polished Black frame has a little "play" on the lens. Every time I wipe the lenses I can feel it move a little or is a little loose. I also noticed this on my Ducati Fives Squared. I expect Oakley to be precise and accurate with ? Some of my old models have the same issue too.

I stumbled upon these sunglasses one day when buying my Half Jackets. After a few days of having my Half Jackets I went into the store to see about getting polarized ice lenses for them when the worker there recommended that I exchange them for the Flak Jackets and I am glad I did.

One reason im glad i got these is because they look allot cooler than the Half Jackets in my opinion and the fire lenses really make you stand out in a crowd. So ya they look cool, What else? How do they perform? Well let me tell you, they perform great! The hydrophobic coating is quite cool. I remember when I first got these I got into my shower with them on. The water just beaded and rolled right off. They began to fog up though so I'd like to see Oakley fix that for the next Flak Jackets. I also tried coloring the lenses red with a marker I found in my drawer, but it didn't work because as soon as I began to rub the lenses with the soft case the marker began to slide right off.The only complaint I have though is that whenever I go to do a EXTREMELY fast turn they tend to fly off my face a good 6 feet away..O! I almost forgot about cleaning them! Ya, I have some crazy d*ckhead friends who find it funny to take these when im not looking and smudge them up as best they can while taking them on an adventure through their pants. I just laugh though because as soon as I get them back After about 30 seconds of wiping they are clean again, and the smell dosent stick to them so I guess thats a plus haha. ( I wash them after they put my Flaks on this adventure on course)

Frame: Metallic Red
Lens: VR28 Black Iridium

Oakley has a reputation for evolving their already innovative eyewear designs into new and better (most of the time) ones. This is certainly true of Flak Jacket, which obviously capitalizes on the function and popularity of Half Jacket. I must admit the first pictures I saw did not impress me much, but once I had an opportunity to try these, I was hooked.

The best elements of Half Jacket are here: light weight, snug fit (but not too tight), plentiful Unobtainium for grip, half-frame styling for better downward vision, and two different nosebomb sizes. However, Flak Jacket adds Hydrophobic lenses and fresh styling that makes them even better for casual, non-sport wear. The hype about the lenses is justified... water just beads up and rolls off, and I have yet to get a noticeable smudge on them. The lens shape is more squared off than HJ, which fits the prevailing styling trend these days. The earstems are sculpted, tall, and slim, which gives Flak a trimmer, narrower look compared to HJ. A nice little detail is the tiny, molded-in icon on the inside of the earstem in the center of the grip anchor (the piece of Unobtainium near the hinge). I've noticed Oakley has incorporated these little icons in some form on most of their new releases (perhaps to better differentiate from fakes?). The metal icon on the outside of the earstem is also unique in that it is solid with the center portion (the "hole") painted to match either the frame or Unobtainium color depending the colorway.

Metallic Red is much like Cinder Red or some versions of Blood. It looks plain maroon in flat light, but really sparkles under bright sun or direct light. VR28 Black is a good choice to match the frame, as the reddish-brown tint and faint mirror complement the red frame and black Unobtainium.

My major concern with the Flak is; I am on my third pair, The top lace catches are not secure enough, I've had 3 of these from seperate shoes fall off, Finally gave up sending then back and pierced the leather to make an eyelet. Maybe a design flaw on a particular run.

Now all that aside, they are extremely comfortable, needing very little wear in. Waterproof as you would expect. And I find them very breathable. Sturdy quality leather which always polish up nicely

Great underrated boots- they look like shoes, but they feel like boots-the sole is very solid-it takes some time wearing them before they will even bend at the ball of the foot in a squat.
Great aggessive design-indeed waterproof!-
Like all Oakley footwear, I have had to opt for a full size larger than I use with other brands-Usually take a 12, and Oakley 13's fit perfect. Anyone else experience this?
The sole is great, but fills up with mud, and other stuff-I would NOT wear these to take the dog to the barkpark!-GASP!
The khaki looks nice, but marks easily-fortunately, they clean up well with a brush and soapy water.
high marks-I'm surprised how often I wear them.

Frame: Jet Black/Yellow

The Flak Jackets bear a striking resemblence to their predecessors, the Half Jackets, but introduce an important difference: the lens coatings. While some have opted to test the new hydrophobic lens coatings and the enhanced ability to easily wipe away dirt/oils I am not that brave. For now, I'll have to trust those forerunners who put the lenses to the test. As far as the fit is concerned, they also maintain Oakley's patented three-point fit system. Unobtainium earsocks and nosepieces increase grip with persperation and add to the comfort. This particular color combo represents acclaimed Lance Armstrong's Livestrong Foundation. Considering a great pair of Oakleys coupled with an unprecedented seven-time Tour de Lance champion endorsement, who wouldn't want to own a pair?

Con: Hot. Pinches top of foot.

As far as "hiking" style, mid-high boots go, these are about average. Style-wise, they're about the best looking boots you'll find. I bought the dark brown ones.

I know Oakley likes to market these as both breathable and waterproof, but I kind of question the breathable part. They get pretty hot and sweaty after wearing them for a few hours. They're definitely waterproof though. I've had Timberlands and Merrells that had superior breathability and were also waterproof.

The best part about these boots are the soles. They're very grippy from what I can feel. When I hop into my C6 Vette after stepping through water, every shoe I own slips off my clutch and brake pedals. These are the only ones that truly hold when the soles are wet.

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!!

Ditto on what Fin7 said.

The top metal lace on mine fell off too so I had to drill an eyelet.Ive been wearing mine for work and it only lasted 3 months.As mentioned the leather are soft so you really dont need a break in period.As far as sizing you might want to get it half a size bigger to get the right fit.

In contrast with the Half Jackets, the Flak Jacket has a more subdued curve to the top of the frame, a less pronounced nose-section (it doesn't bulge as much as the Half Jacket), and straight and flat earstems. The Flaks seem to have better grip than the HJs. The hydrophobic coating on the lenses add to the cost and is certainly a bonus when out jogging in the rain. However,I am not a fan of the colourways newer, perhaps "louder" colourways like the metallic red frame or the blue frame. The Livestrong editions are certainly a must for collectors.

Frame: Polished Rootbeer
Lens: Gold Iridium Polarized

I love my Flaks, and I think they are superior to the M-frame, HJ, and Radar for sport and military use. I am not in the military, but many of my friends are, so I will echo their opinions if you don't mind:

The hammerstems on the HJ and M-frame are a pain when used with any sort of helmet, because of the straps, and for those of us in the shooting sports, the thickness of the earsocks interferes with ear protective devices. FJ's flat earstems/socks fit much better under earpro and it has no protruding hammerstems either.

Extra Radar and M-frame lenses are large and difficult to carry on the body in a space-economical way. FJ's lenses fit nicely in a small pouch for easy change on the go. HJ are good for this too, but it still has earstem problems.

The FJ is better than the Radar in two other ways - it has breakaway earstems and no flimsy nosepiece. I've sent my M-frame earstems flying on two occasions, and they were only saved by the breakaway feature. Radar has that steel rod through the earstem = something is going to break irretrievably in an accident. Also, I don't buy the durability claims of the Radar nosepiece. It's going to break sometime, and then you're SOL.

Flak has the best features of all these models and I highly recommend them. I just wish Oakley would come out with some better colorways and polarized lens options.

I was really hoping these were going to fit me as they look great, light weight and really well built.

Sadly because of the fit I have to have them pushed right up against my face and my eyelashes catch too much. If I move them down my nose a little they bounce around. Tried both sets of nose bombs and still no joy.

Make sure you try these well before you buy. If they fit you, then you will have a great pair of glasses!

I'm more of a fan of the XLJ, but when a unique piece comes out, the function takes a backseat to the design. The bright yellow accents show well against the all black frame. The box again mirrors the color combinations. As others have stated the soft vault is near useless, but a nice addition. I'd rather they not bother and lower the price though.

I purchased a pair of the silver Flak Jackets with the fire lenses. They looked like a sweet pair of glasses with the hydrophobic lenses. However, after only a month, the silver coating on the back of the arms began to wear off revealing the black plastic underneath. By that point, I could not find my receipt and therefore Oakley told me that they did not consider the glasses to be under warranty any longer. In turn, I would have to pay $30 plus the shipping charges to have the Flak Jackets sent to Oakley to be analyzed. Needless to say, I was not impressed with the quality of these glasses or with Oakley's customer support.

Picked these up in New York and had them for aroun 6months now. Great set of boots, very comfortable and look the business.

No problems with laces as others have described. My main use is just general urban use. I'm not hiking or doing any building work etc. I wouldn't want to ruin them as they look so nice :-)

Much better than the Half Jackets. New frame shape + Better looking lens + hydrophobic = Amazing

I wish that all Oakley lenses had the H2O treatment, or that I could find the treatment for sale anywhere to use on my other glasses.

Far and away, the Water Jackets' smarter, sexier sibling.

Swapped the lenses out with +REd XLJ lenses. Swapped out the nose bombs for the larger set that was included. The glasses now fit an Asian face so much better. Depending on your face style, you may not neccesarily have to buy an Asian Fit pair. Great light weight lenses. REmind me of the weight of my old M-Frames. Nice not having a frame blocking my lower peripheral vision. They indeed grip right where they're suppose to. Excellent all around sunglasses for most any activity.

Frame: White (MLB edition Phillies)
Lens: Black Iridium

Excellent idea the pairing of Oakley and MLB. Great cleaning bag and the box is awesome. As for fit, the glasses fit great and the subdued- etched P for Phillies is subtle enough to show your a fan, but not too in your face. I'd buy an MLB version just for the bag and case. The quality of the glasses is just a bonus.

Lens: +Red Iridium

Introducing unique frame finishes/colorways such as the White Text/+Red Iridium in the Flak Jacket only makes collecting that much more exciting. As always, the glasses themselves fit very well, accented with unobtainium earsocks and nosepieces and utilizing Oakley's patented three-point fit. Interchangable lenses also allow for further customization of these shades.

I have the Flak6 model - black. These are fantastic motorcycle boots. I was looking for an Oakley boot that would cover the ankle but have a small enough toe to operate the shifter properly. The old NAIL mids were great, just not high enough. The SI boot's toe's cap seam catches on the shift peg, and the Casing - well its just too cumbersome. I have used the Flak 6 on both my Harley and sportbikes, and its almost like it was designed as a motorcycle boot. Great marks for looks too.

These are some great glasses, I use them for running or biking and they stay on without any problems. I rarely will need to push them back up. The livestrong edition is Great color, too bad they don't have this in asian fit. The extra nosebombs provided were the same size. I ended up buying a black nosepiece kit just so I can use the larger nosebomb and created my own "asian fit" livestrong flaks

These were not so great, the sole was not put on right on one of my boots and was out of possition and the waterproofing failed about about 30 days of wear.

The can be comfortable with some inserts when standing alot but with out them it would get old fast.

Really nice set of sunglasses and comes with a nice case. I have a pair of Half Jackets with the same color frames and polarized lenses, but they're not as nice as the Flak Jackets. The ear stems aren't as bulky and the unobtanium ear socks don't start to cirl on the ends like the half jackets. I strongle recommend the polarized lenses too- exellent on the slopes and on the lake. At $195, they are little more costly than some other models but well worth it!

These suit me pretty well, they have about the same fit as the Half Jacket. The hydrophobic lenses are really great.
The earstems with the nice sharp edges in them make these frames just stand out out of the crowd. The shape is a bit more fashion oriented than the Half Jacket, so for me the Half Jacket still is the greatest of both which got 5 stars. But this future classic deserves it's 4 stars really well.

Arguably one of the most attractive frame options available, Black Chrome paired with almost any lens looks amazing. Likewise, Polarized Tungsten lenses are some of the most underrated yet soothing lenses to wear, providing great contrast and excellent protection in a wide range of light conditions - especially bright light. Pair the two and you have one of the greatest combinations ever.

Grab a pair while you still can, because it appears that they have been discontinued.

I have two pair of Oakley's and I gotta say that this is an awesome pair , the price is very good if it's not polarized , Though I got the Polarized ones , they're very light and it feels like you are not wearing anything at all , the replacable lens are a huge plus becuase when they break or get worn out which is unlikely providing getle care , you can easily replace them , they are rugged and very appropriate for everyday use , they are classy and elegant and the mirror effect that the have is absolutely amazing , one more positive thing is that they look 100% American and extremely cool , they hydrophobic coating is REAL and it is not an over estimation , they are really easy to clean simply by wiping them with the provided cloth/bag ,
all in all , they are one of the best pairs ever created by Oakley

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: Jet Black
Lens: Black Iridium

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)

I have been wearing a pair of these as work shoes for at least 2 years now. I have had them so long the black leather has turned green. Best pair of shoes I have ever owned.

Frame: Jet Black
Lens: Black Iridium
Rating: 3.5

The first review. This was the first pair I bought during my Oakley shopping spree. Basically, it's just the different shaped nosebombs that make it "asian", they make the sunglasses sit properly on your nose (higher up). I tried on the normal fit and the lenses touch your face and that holds the glasses up. The bridge hovers above your nose, anchored to nothing. With the Asian fit, it's corrected. My suggestion is that if you're asian, don't get the normal fit cos they fit really poorly. You have been warned! =)

However, I find these a little too stuffy for me... great with corporate attire, even reminds me of Neo's shades. But it seems to lack the sportiness of the HJs... it's a bit like a pair meant to be worn with shirts and suits, IMO. I wouldn't be able to match these with casual wear. Or, it could simply be the colour combination (black/black). I'm not too confident these would take off as well as the half jackets did, especially since they're sort of meant to be their replacements.

Frame: Jet Black
Lens: Black Iridium

My profile: Light running (4-6 miles/day) and casual outdoor wear. I have a fairly normal Asian face.

I've been looking for a set of shades to fit my Asian face for a while, but nothing seems to work. Even the Julbo Race and their "adjustable multipoint" setup didn't work exactly right -- after cranking the nosepiece all the way back, I got pretty much no contact with the top of the parabolic arc and my nose, and they jiggled around terribly.

While the normal Jackets and Square Os fit Asian faces really poorly, the Asian Fit Flak Jacket was unfortunately not the holy grail.

It still doesn't exactly fit perfectly -- my eyelashes still seem to oil up the inside of the lens, the whole frame bounces a little while I run, and when they're pushed up tight, I still don't get enough air flowing around to prevent steaming up on the inside after I warm up.

I would like to see a Flak Jacket with less base curve on the lens, more "bowing" on the temples, and an even steeper/narrower/taller nosepiece. I think that would provide a much better fit.

That having been said, a LOT better than the normal fit sunglasses by Oakley and all other manufacturers I've tried, including Julbo, Ray-Ban, Bolle, and Smith. The worst was trying to run in a pair of Canteens! My next shot is going to be Rudy Projects with all the adjustability.

Frame: Metallic Red \ Jet Black
Lens: Pol. VR28 Black \ Pol. Ice Iridium

These beat my Half Jacket's by a long shot. I was extremely skeptical because I was in love with my Half Jackets. I never bothered trying these, but I'm sure glad I did. The Metallic Red actually isn't Asian Fit. I just got large nose pads for it and it fit perfectly. The Jet Black is an Asian Fit version, and it too fits me perfectly. In all honesty, even though the frame shape is different, they feel the same. These are amazing. I would recommend grabbing a pair. By the way, Polarized VR28 Black is probably the best lens out there. I actually use it instead of the Ice. That's how much I like them.

This pair is a great fit for asian faces and yes the frame is different than the regular flak jackets. The bridge where the nose pieces are is not as wide apart like on the regular one. To know you have a true asian fit frame look for the letter "J" in the model number. Better than the half jackets too.

Frame: Plasma
Lens: VR28 Gold Iridium

Matt SG… Just a quick comment, The reason Black/Black does not go with civilian clothes is because of the Black/Black.. My Plasma with Black iridium was the party boy of the bunch I felt it went with any attire I chose.. or it might just be us Black and white are neutral colours they should go with everything..

I search long for a pair of sun glasses that I could use when I felt like it, this was particularly difficult as one of those time would be when I am commuting or just riding. I ride a motorcycle, that was one of the reasons I really had problems locating a pair of glasses I would be happy with, that looked good and lastly fit snug and tight in the helmet when driving.

These were them till I lost it. After that because of the price tag I did not go back to the Oakley’s I shopped again and found a pair of Polaroid’s they did not make impact I wanted.. Being a lot cheaper I still wear them but not whilst riding….


These days I am looking to buy another pair of Flak jackets white with fire iridium lenses as they are also somewhat good in clearing vision at night especially since Oakley introduced the high definition optics it darkens out the night just a little but it also brightens any light available and for some un explained reason the lines on the road is clear always good to see when on a bike considering every person driving a car feels it is their duty to blind everybody riding a bike because we ride with our bright on for the simple reason that we need to make ourselves as visible as possible…

Have not had a problem using my brothers Juliet’s with the fire iridium lenses apart from the fit in the helmet and the fact that it jumps around being very heavy.

I can’t wait for the finances to be that little better to allow for that small amount of extra spending money. Next pair polished white with the normal iridium black and a extra pair of Fire Iridium polarised just because the case holds the glasses with its installed lenses and two additional lenses… If I can hold on this pair long enough I will even get a clear polarised pair of lenses.

Hopefully soon

I will always stay with Oakley and possible start a collection of glasses and lenses who know “they just tick all the boxes.

Lens: G30 Irid, Gold Irid and Persimmon

Got this to replace a pair of 0.4 that were stolen. Outstanding package and lenses are pretty easy to swap out once you figure it out. A little nervous that one day the o-matter frame will break from all the stretching around the lenses, but so far it has held up well. Persimmon is perfect for low-light driving conditions. G30 is great for actually golfing, and the gold is my high-light lens. Nice selection of accessory lenses for this frame as well--I also picked up a set of Ice Iridium and +red to round out the package. Only complaint was that the array case could be better designed. The spare lenses stay in fine, but the slot for the glasses isn't very secure and I always feel like I'm forcing the glasses into the slot (and for that reason have stopped using the case for the glasses).

I fully agree with OsmosisJones. These are a great "big brother" to the Half Jackets that I love so much. I haven't decided on my color combo yet, but I'll definitely be picking up a set of these. I like the slightly broader coverage, and the fact that they come with a case at their lower price point. I still want a set of Radars as well, which grip the nose better for sports purposes, but the Flaks fit that nice spot between casual and sporty that make me love my Half Jackets so much.

I dock them one star for not being quite as grippy around the nose as the Radar, which would make them perfect, IMO. Plus, I'd like to see Ruby or G26 as a lens color option.

Although these glasses looked great when I finally saw them in person, they proved to be a bit too large (the XLJ lenses) after trying them on (the standard Flak Jackets fit me better). True to Oakleys heritage, they fit very snug, as the "three point fit" serves its purpose well. Despite the fact that they were a bit too large, they still deserve a full five skulls for their overall quality, function, and performance.

Frame: Polished White
Lens: Black Iridium XLJ

The Flak Jackets took many 'try-ons' for me ever since they came out and took a while to eventually grow on me, like the rest of the Oakleys. Once I tried one with an XLJ lens, it became a pair that I had to get. The fit is very sufficient, and not overkilled like the fit of the half jacket. Extremely comfortable. XLJ eye coverage will be perfect for many.

I didn't have any white colored Oakleys, so I went for the white look, to ensure they would look good with any lens color that may come out in the future. The frame lines and bottom cut of the new XLJ lens are really what make The Look for the glass in direct sunlight. Its a bold, fluid look that screams Oakley. Also, the special lens coating does what its supposed to, it repels water and oil, making for extremely easy to clean lenses.

I almost went Custom for the ice iridium, but the O store didn't have the blue earsocks (and I don't think they exist either), and the guy swapping the lenses for me was really putting undue stress on the frame. Plus, it didn't seem like I would get to customize the Icon, which has the inside of the O painted the same color as the Earsocks (slate). You would think that an in-store custom job would mean that all the components would come from a bin, but its still a matter of the staff running around and finding the boxes containing your requested components. I felt bad, but my common sense kicked in at that point to save $10-$15 and I opted for the factory born glasses since I'm more than capable of customizing my own glasses. I'm glad that I did since I can get Ice Iridium polarized from one of the online retailers. I'll probably get the G20 Black Iridium as a sport lens as well.

The only thing I'm kinda upset about was how I missed the extremely minor defect of iridium application on the upper nose corner of the right lens ...there is a dark overspray that you have to look for. I still may trek down to the O-store to do an exchange (since they probably won't see it). Its like Oakley has significantly ramped up their overall production, because the lens I had during the inspection before that one had an unremovable black spot on a lens. And a juliet ruby lens I ordered direct from Oakley at the beginning of summer had a minor edge surface scratch where the screw goes. For this recent lack of lens quality control, I'm giving 4 stars.

I've had these for awhile now and I really like them. They hydrophobic lens coating is amazing. I took them to the lake and sure enough, all the water droplets beaded up on the lenses and rolled off. Very cool and very helpful. The XLJ lenses are great when wearing them for sports, you don't have to worry about light coming in under the lenses and distracting your eye. These won't be collector glasses, but that wasn't there intent in the first place. They're just awesome glasses that do their job; work.

I got a great deal on these and tried to wear them for a few days. They fit my huge head surprisingly well but still hurt after a few hours. I did fall in love with the hydrophobic coating though and in my experience it worked just as advertised. My lenses stayed a lot cleaner through everyday use and were much easier to clean using just the bag. Even greasy smudges wiped right off with no problems.

I do recommend these for women also because my best friend tried them on and liked them so much they became hers.

As always you can never go wrong with Black Iridium, in my opinion it is Oakley's best all around lens.

I like the fit of the Flak Jackets - they are quite comfortable. They also look great and come in a wide range of color options, both for the frame and for the lenses. The permanent hydrophobic coating on the lenses makes these glasses even greater, in my opinion. They're almost like an updated version of the Half Jackets, just a bit more rigid and curvy in appearance. Whether you want these for sport or just for a casual pair of sunglasses, it's hard to go wrong with a pair of Flak Jackets.

One of the most functional pairs of Oakleys to date. If you do anything that can be considered "athletic", these fit the bill perfectly. I wear these playing sports, mountain biking, and basically for anything else I can come up with. G30 lens for low light conditions, and black or slate iridium when the sun comes out. The lenses are ridiculously easy to change (even easier than the half jackets they replaced) and the hydrophobic lens coating makes all the difference - especially if you're doing something that causes you to sweat (no oil build-up on lens surface like the non-hydrophobic lenses). The fit is perfect - especially under a hat or bike helmet. These are the go-to style when you want to work hard outside and not worry about your glasses.

Another home run for Oakley (and appropriately they release an MLB lineup). While I can't say for sure this overtakes the Half Jacket, they do prove a worth competitor. While I like the round rather than flat stems of the HJ, and the overall design, the dual cam hinges do work very well keeping the stems from flapping around. The hydrophobic coating is a huge help and reduced the need to constantly clean your lens down to an absolute minimum. One of my daily pairs and worth every penny.

Great pair of glasses. Super light. Great coverage. Hydrophic lens doesn't get oil marks from my hair. Even the XLJ lenses didn't push on my cheekbones. I love the fact that you can pop out the lenses and swap them for different colors. I wore these during the Phillies historic World Series run (purchased the last pair in the Philly market the day they made it to the series). There is an etched "p" in the lens which makes it stand out in a subtle way. The dust bag/micro bag is very cool. The box is decorated with the MLB teams and has the threading of a baseball. The glasses come with a carrying case, as well. One of the best deals going with Oakley.

I got the Golf specific lenses for trying to hunt down the ball in the rough but may have to buy some Ice Iridium for cricket because although these lenses are good for contrast they dont do a good job of blocking out the sun. If I have to take a high catch into the sun I am struggling!

I tried taking out the lenses to give them a proper clean and this was my only concern - when I bent the frame like Dann told me to do the lens was fired into me. You have to be careful or you might drop them. I was worried about how much pressure I had to put on the frames to release the lens.

My favorite pair of sport sunglasses. I sweat a LOT, and the nosebombs don't budge. The earstems are very elastic and grippy, which lets the frame mold to your head very well, regardless of size or shape. The coverage offered by the XLJ lens is awesome, after a few minutes i completely forget they are on. Definitely a huge improvement on the already fantastic half jackets. I do find that the flaks are a little less aggressive looking though.

Frame: Team Orange
Lens: Fire Iridium Polarized

The Flak is one of (if not the) most functional glass Oakley makes. The design, while not extreme, is unique enough to stand out from the crowd yet provide functional, everyday protection in a wide variety of lens and frame options.

When I finally decided to get a Flak, the XLJ lens was the obvious choice. To be honest, I'm not sure why Oakley makes a standard lens in this model and Half Jacket as, on my standard sized head and face, the XLJ coverage is barely enough to keep out the light and not make the lenses appear overly wide and narrow (narrow as is not very high in relation to the width of the lens). When I did decide on it and I realized an orange frame option was available, I almost flipped. Never being a fan of the Oakley products in Atomic Orange, yet orange being my favorite color, I was thrilled to find TEAM ORANGE as orange is my favorite color and this shade is a dead match to my Mustang. Getting it combined with Fire Polarized however was a problem and I ended up getting a custom Orange and Black and installing Fire Polarized lenses.

The fit of these is very good, however I personally had issues with the nosebridge area lifting off my nose when I smiled; the larger nosebombs helped....but then that lifted the front of the frames too high and I could almost look under the bottom of the lens. The only way to fix it was to wear them at a particular spot on my nose...which was cumbersome at first, but became habit after awhile. When on, the glasses look great; this design IS a little less aggressive than the Half, but the Half had/has so many fit and long term quality issues that the Flak solves, that it doesn't make them worth having vs. the Flak. Add to that the near weightless wearing experience and you have a comfortable winner.

The case that comes with these is really cool; there are slots for the glasses and two additional sets of lenses (nice touch, but pointless in my view....as I will get to later) and is fully padded. The only thing I wonder is why a sub $200 pair of glasses has a more padded case than a $400 pair of X Metals????

One of the primary ideas behind the Half and Flak Jackets has always been lens interchangibility...but that was a huge hassle in the Half and, though improved, I feel is still a huge issue in the Flak. Changing the lenses is still a process reserved for seasonal changes (like you wear a darker lens May to Sep and a lighter lens Oct to January etc). Changing these lenses every day or 2 or 3 times a week is more hassle than its worth to me. I needed a G30 lens and, in the end, felt it was worth the extra cost to just get the Metallic Blue with G30 vs. buy the G30 lenses and swap them out, especially considering I might want to wear my Orange Flak's in the morning with G30 and in the day with Fire....and have to change out to do so. That however is just me; for others they may not mind or have different needs. For those like me, a Jawbone may be the solution, but until they come out with a paired down version of those HUGE glasses, we will be left waiting.

Overall, the Flak is a GREAT VALUE on a very functional and stylish set of glasses.

These are the only Oakley sunglasses that fit my face. They aren't bulkie, they're not heavy, and they work well if you like wearing baseball hats all the time. I personally chose the XLJ lenses. They covered my face a little better than the standard lense, and they have that signature Oakley design. I'm the guy that wears his sunglasses on his forehead every once in awhile, and the Flak Jacket is so light weight that it leaves little to no marks on my forehead. If I'm indoors for a long while, I'll wear them on top of my head, but I have to flip them up-side-down, otherwise they'll sit too high on my head and fall off. But putting them on this way, they stay on and don't move. I highly recommend these for anyone who likes the outdoors/sports. I've run with these many times and they don't jiggle around or seem to loosen on my face. All I needed was a pair of sunglasses that functioned and the Flak Jacket does just that.

WOW first pair of oakleys and they are fantastic. They are extremely comfortable and don't squeeze your head at all but they also stay on through almost all physical motions.
Pros: Comfortable, lightweight, secure, they look good sporty yet stylish, hydrophobic coating.
Cons: they creak when opening or flexing. if you wear them often on a hat or something wider than your head they can stretch and become looser when you wear them, the lenses scratch really easily

Frame: Flak Jacket Plasma
Lens: Gold Iridium


Nice glasses. Leave less of a mark on my nose from the unobtainable than my half wires did, presumably due to the 0-matter frame vs the carbon fiber on the half wire. I originally had the regular lens, but I had to trade out my first frame at the 0-store due to a blemish on the frame paint. I took the opportunity to exchange for the XLJ lens as well and am glad I did. Although some prefer the contemporary style of the regular flaks, the XLJ do have superior coverage, superior protection, and offer a unique look. A+

The flack jacket is one of Oakley best frames because it's cheap, looks good with everything from a suit to a pair of board shorts and flip flops. This fame is very comfortable and the color combo's are endless.

Frame:Dark Grey
Lens:Fire Polarized

Cool glasses, not my normal style, i'm more of a jackets kinda guy, but partner bought me these for xmas last year and they instantly became my new favourites. Have compared the Dark Grey frames i have with the the standard Silver/Grey frames that come with non-polarized fire lenses and i have to say, these are definitely worth the extra money, they look so much cooler, more like x metal colour instead of cheap looking silver, works for me. polarized lenses are excellent as ever. extremely light to wear. i actually wear these more than any others including my pit boss just because these are so light to wear, i sometimes forget i have them on! only minor snag is that u cannot see digital camera view screens through these lenses, the polarization blacks them out, which is a pain in my job. but bar that, awesome.

Frame: Matte White
Lens: Jade Iridium, VR28 Black Iridium Polarized

Though I am not a fan of white sunglasses I fell in love with the matte white frame on these. The jade lens is also amazing. After owning half jackets for years I thought I'd step up to these and I'm not disappointed. The only thing is I wish I could get my hands on green earsocks.

Frame: Silver
Lens: Fire Iridium XLJ
I got custom silver frames / fire iridium XLJ lens with red ear socks and satin silver / red (inside) icons.
They are amazing!
The silver & fire iridium combo looks cool and the silver / red combo looks great too.
I'm going on a service project in South Africa in July and I'm going to bring along my oakleys to help filter out all those harsh rays.
Anyhow, all around great glasses.
Very comfortable, lightweight, durable, look good.
Con: From what I've read, the lens do scratch fairly easily, but if you take good care of your glasses then I guarantee that you won't have any issues!

I decided to buy a glass for my outdoor sport activities like : skating, tennis or jogging. I choose the Flak jacket because i got a good offer for them and i am really fascinated. Especially the jade iridium lenses look very nice with its touch of green and you dont have to worry about the sun blinding you. The matte white frame also looks cool.

Frame: Matte Black
Lens: VR28 Black Iridium Polarized

Having worn M Frames and Half Jackets prior to this, I was surprised at how loose this frame is in comparison. It caused me concern that they would slip around more, but so far that hasn't been the case. The design itself while still being appropriate for sports is more casual friendly than the M frame while providing better coverage than the Half Jacket, so it's very nice in that regard.

There are trade offs with an open lens system such as this as opposed to something like the Gascan. It's ligher weight and more comfortable, and you can change the lens out easier. On the other hand, light can leak in the sides causing reflections on the inside of the lens. The VR28 Black Polarized seems to suffer from more reflections than the Black Iridium I have on my half jackets. I'm not sure if that is just because of the color, the size of the lens, or the hydrophobic coating. The lenses will also get dirty quicker when sitting on top of your head because there is no frame on the bottom, but the hydrophobic lenses are also much easier to clean.

I was worried that the Polarized etched in the lens would be distracting, but I can't see it while wearing the glasses. The VR28 Black Polarized is a very nice looking lense that I will post more about in the lens review section.

All in all, a comfortable, stylish pair of glasses that provides good protection from the sun. Just taking off one star because of the reflections on the inside and also because some people might find these too loose for a sport specific frame.

Frame: Jet Black
Lens: Black Iridium

Finally, I got my Flak XLJ Asian Fit. (The Half Jacket Asian Fit is way to tight for me, and I thought Flak's Asian Fit might be better.) I am told by Oakley's customer service rep that Asian Fit frame is different from the regular one. However, after I tried my Flak XLJ Asian Fit, I feel little difference compared with regular frame(with extra nose pieces). XLJ lens still touch my cheek, while ear stems are not rounded enough to match the shape of my head. Oakley makes great glasses but did a bad job on Asian Fit for both Half Jacket and Flak Jacket.

Frame: Jet Black
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized

I had been looking all summer for a good pair of sunglasses that I would be able to wear in a military uniform. I needed the Asian Fit style since normal frames did not quite fit my face properly on my nose. Since there are only about 4 or 5 sunglasses that are military approved and Asian Fit, the Flak Jacket seemed to be the best choice. I also had to get them prescribed by a prescription dealer so my purchase was pretty customized. I have been wearing them for about 3 weeks now I have to say I am pleased with my purchase. The only downside is that they are not good for running conditions. They tend to slide down on my nose when I sweat heavily and bounce.

Color: Bark

Picked these up at a drag race. I've never seen the Bark color before or since, but it's a light brown. Really nice shoes and really comfortable, though they did take a couple times to break in. They go great with a nice pair of jeans or khakis.

Sizing seems to run pretty standard.

got a pair of flak low's, Grey/Navy, not very comfortable when you first wear them but the fourth time round seem alot better, difficult to clean though.

this was my first oakley shoe,i got the black/khaki and they are amazing! i bought they almost a year ago, and they stil like new!, i use everyday to work, and also easy to clean.

Passed 3 and half years since i bougth them, the leather still awesome, but the sole have a little hole on the left foot so the water is getting into my shoe, now i´m looking for the flak jacket 2.0(brazil exclusive), hope this one keep the quality of it´s predecessor.

Please oakley bring the original flak low and jacket back!

I hate carrying wallets because of the bulkiness but this one is great ive got 2 credit cards, atm card, drivers liscence, metro card, work id and about 10 pictures in it and can hardly tell its in my back pocket. the money clip is great but the "O"s tend to fall off due to the cheap glue used so i reccomend to take them off right away and use some super glue to re attach

Absolutely awesome! Very tough to find at this point but extremely cool and easy to carry around....

Removable money clip, shiny black leather
Sweet design, very sought after now.

Lost the first one I had, so the new stays in the display case.
Taking no chances.

If you hate a bulky wallet, this is the solution. Small, tight, and flat. The leather use is first class. getting rare and hard to get at this moment. Prices on Ebay is way up to a hundred.

This money clip served me well for six years. It was perfect for me because I already carry too many things in my pocket. If I could've found a brand new one I would've picked it up without hesitation.

got 2 of these, one on display and one to use, less the money clip as i dont have a wod of notes to carry around! holds 6 cards tops, but super slim and nice leather
OakleyEric -
Bought several of these at various oakley stores over time. I am up to 6 in reserve when the one im using now fails. Which i have had for about 2 years now and no problems. Was close to sell a couple on ebay but damn cant bring myself to do it. I hate wallets and this is perfect combo.
Farlius -
Excellent variation of a normal wallet. I have had the same one for awhile now and besides the icons on the clip detaching (easily fixed with crazy glue) it's been perfect. I have one on display/in reserve for if and when this one fails. The leather is durable and even the mesh screen pocket has never torn. Holds any and everything (cards, money) easily without a large profile and fits easily into front pants pocket. Interestingly, going through airport screening I have had to twice take it out of my bag to confirm the clip is not a weapon or blade--most likely because of it's appearance under the x-ray.

Color: Black, Red
I bought the Black Flesh shoes at Marshall's for $16. I saw these shoes go for over a hundred in a fancy store, so it was quote a deal. They lasted for well over a year before the plastic that holds the back ridge up started breaking down and wearing through the exterior. At that point I had to get rid of them to avoid a blister. But everything else about them is perfect. I also have a pair of red ones that I wear on special occasions, but I like to keep those mint.
EastCoast -
Color: White / Light Blue

Very comfortable pair of shoes. The model I have was never listed on the webpage. Also, the tread on the original Flesh was solid on the traction pods. On the pair I have the traction pods are crosshatched like on the Bottlecap. No good for formal wear, but I don't think that's the point of them.

I really like my Fleshs but, at least for my foot, they tood a long time to break in. I like the way the Icon on the toe looks.

Color: Goldenrod

I bought them at first at the thought of having goldenrod shoes! But they are so comfortable. The only problem I've had is that the heel has started to wear out on the inside. But that's been after so much use, I'd still rank these as some great shoes. Slip on and enjoy!
O.T.T. -
Color: black with white detailing
Thes are great shoes although the lack of half sizes made it difficult to be 100% comfortable (a 10.5 would have been perfect. I found that if I had been particularly active that salt from sweat would turn parts of the leather white. Also it didnt take long for profile of the padding under the stretch membrane to become constantly visible.

A lot of faults but oakley's first outing into footwear is still one of my most favourite oakley designs (bottlecaps just sucked)
BiGCoB -
I've got three of those that I paid 15 euros each. A red one, a black one and a sand one. I still wear all of them but the black is very used. They are very comfortable but as idealoakley said, don't walk with its on the snow.
Rick -
Color: Blue

I remember buying these in LA in 2001 and that day some drunk dude said "if LA ever slips into the ocean, I'm swimming with you!" So, I've always been a little self conscious when wearing these, but they are so easy to slip on and off. The bright blue is a bit "look at me" but I still love them. I wore them without socks once - big blisters on the back of the ankle.

Color: Black

I have had these shoes for 4 years, and of course they aren't like they were brand new, but they have unbeleiveably remained intact and are very durable.

I love the style and fit of these shoes. They go with every pant/short/jean I own and are great for their ease of use.

I really would like Oakley to release the Flesh because mine are getting old and I want to replace them with exactly the same pair.

Got these off of Oakley.com when they first came out. Initially I really liked the feel of them, they were comfortable, not to mention they added at least two inches to my already 6'2" frame. After a while though, the "O" Icon began to recede and cause a blister on my middle toe. Also I would not recomend wearing these without socks, it will cause an ungodly smell.

FLESH GREY:

Extremely comfortable and look good too. I have been wearing mine for 3 years and they still look good and feel great. My only complaint is that they are VERRY slippery on snow. That is no fault of OAKLEY as they were not designed for the snowy climate up here in CANADA. I have learned to deal with sliding around while looking good in these shoes.

TERRORISM -
Color: Black

Oakley's early entrance into the footwear market proved difficult at best, as many of their first lines of shoes performed poorly at retail; the Flesh changed that, however - at least in my opinion. Combining aesthetic appeal, comfort from aeroprene, and the convenience of slip-on footwear resulted in an excellent shoe. The black color looks great with almost anything, and doesn't stand out too much like the blue. Due to the limited amount of use mine have had, I cannot comment on their longevity/durability, though.

Ive had mine pair for 7 years and still doing great ! want to buy new ones but apparanetely they dont make them anymore...New models dont look to me. wonder if theres any shop where I can find some back catalogue

I have owned a couple pairs of these. Great shoe so comfy my only con is the padding would deteriorate way before the shoe 1yr+. I have tried to replace them but to no real success.If you find these in your size buy them as they are collector items at this point :).

Man this sucks, for a long time now I have been looking for Okley Flesh but to no avail, seems to be found only in the museums now but why? After the last one I bought, can't find any other one.

WE NEEEEEEEEEEEED THEM BACK!!!

I have two pairs of these now, one in the lovely Goldenrod colour, the other sand/black or tan...

jumpman73 -
I missed out on the flight deck helmet and was bummed. When they came out with these I had to get it. The design is awesome. The plastic pieces can pop off easily, I guess to accomodate washing. The lining of the beanie itself is very nice and comfortable. It does a great job and keeping my head warm. I have a pretty big head and this really accomodates the size well. To top it off, it comes in a fleece pouch for storage.
Salazabr -
I like this almost as much as the helmet but for me it doesn't fit quite as well. I have a huge head and that's a common problem me. Aside from that though its a great winter hat that is definitely warm and snuggly and perfect for winter sports.
Nemesis -
I'll agree with it being too small. The Helmet fits well, I think the Beanie fits much smaller. I'd guess that's why it's called a 'beanie'. Either way, it's nice to have.
o-xide -
You ask Oakley why is this item a limited production, I'll tell you why, because it's completely useless... but enter the world of snowsports and pair this up with an Oakley goggle, you will look bad ass and useless becomes USEFUL.

Althought it's not made to save your head from impact, it does have padding in the right places to absorb the shock if you hit your head.

unlike the Medusa, this hat is has better benefits for snowsports. Looks cool. It doesn't get too hot. earpiece kept my ears toasty and importantly, comfortable and light weight.

All plastic pieces are completely removeable (mostly snap on and off) so the Khaki cloth material is washable (I believe). The inside of the hat is lined with some type of fleece material. The outer rim is leather.

One size fits all is benificial as well. D ring on both lower chin section gives it the industrial look. The Metal O icon on the front centerpiece is outstanding. The spatter skull in the back center piece is totally Oakley. not to mention, the holes in the plastic shield make this look cool and aerodynamic. Back has a garter that keeps the hat snug.


And finally, the headphone feature. I'd say good idea but the wire dangling is asking for trouble in snow activities. Maybe bluetooth it in the future. Sound quality is excellent even with high winds blowing from the outside.

Reactions from people and resort employee: amazed and stoked. "Whoa, flight deck! This dude is geared up!"
Oak -
What a great collector's item (limited to 1,000 as of Jan. 2006). Fits well and the sound's great. No one can escape looking like a total geek in this, but's it's pretty cool anyhow. They come in a really nice box as well.
kingphilbert -
It's here, and it's so damn cool. What's it for, I have no idea, but it was so worth owning. "One size fits all" works well as it fits my medium noggin and leaves a bit or room to spare. The sound quality is pretty good. Best when strapped on tight. It even comes with a helmet bag to carry it in. Oh, and a little pocket for the excess speaker cord. Though not for head protection in life or death situations, a few knocks on the rear panel from a coworker didn't hurt so much with the padding under the shields. The construction is very nice as well with a fleece lining and leather trim.
Salazabr -
Finally got one and can't believe how good the speakers are and that it actually fits my monster noggin! So cool I might have to get another one to keep pristine and actually use this one. Awesome addition and must have for any collection.
Nemesis -
My Flight Deck Helmet is more for 'show' than 'go', but I'm glad I picked it up. I don't really think I'd risk actually wearing it to the slopes, I think it's geared more for display. But I know I could if I wanted to. Next time I'm launching an aircraft off the carrier deck, I'll know what to wear.
ichibandidisan -
Recently got one. And I actually get to wear this for the work that I do! I cue educational videos to follow a written transcript of lectures, so I need snug earphones! What a pleasant coincidence that Oakley has produced one of these cool ear sets. At least shows wifie that Oakley stuff can sometimes be very very practical! Plus, I got spares for the cloth part in a different color (black and darker brown leather edges versus the conventional beige with lighter brown leather edging). So, should I need to wash the cloth portion, I'll have a back-up plan. If the sky or ceiling falls, I know I'm covered.

A great pack! Especially if you can get it for a good deal on ebay. The monster dogs are fantastic, especially since you are getting some limited edition colorways. Great shoes, some crazy head/finger bands ... and the case itself is handy. A sweet package buy!

awesome pack. got mine from ebay for 90$ CAN. Got the white pack. The only thing is I dunno if its just me but I ordered a size 11 shoe and these feel alot smaller. Has anyone else had that problem? is it just cause they r new?
BrianJ1888 -
These cases are a pretty good deal for what you get. IMO the limited edition Monster Dogs are worth a good deal of the price. Consider that there are only 1500 of each color. The super-rare Jordan Romeo's had a run of 5000. The pack and the bands are going to be displayed, and I'll wear the t-shirt and the shoes. FWIW, the shirt seemed to be of a lesser quality than my other Oakley shirts.

these things are awesome. i wish oakley made more limited stuff like these. they need to make some more limited monster dogs w/ piping or some freaky colors or any other unusual things on them. i would never pay the $250 for these but for the price i got them for they are awesome because of the limited numbers. plan to get the last set. the best colors of them, at least so far.
Oak -
Color: Navy / Pink / Blue

The best thing going for it is that it's limited and the Monster Dogs are nice (fits extremely well for such big frames and the crystal navy frame is a great touch). Personally, the shoes aren't all that attractive and the bag isn't very much good for anything else other than for the Fluoro Pack items. The shirt's not bad, though. I'm not sure if it's worth the MSRP, but I got it as a present for Christmas, so I'm not complaining.:)

I got a chance to see other other Fluoro Packs as well at Intersport in the West Edmonton Mall. The Navy Pink is definitely the best looking, IMO, but the Green/Orange Monster Dog looks great as well.
TheVault -
Color: White / Green & Olive Khaki / Orange

Overall they are vey nice; 3 of the MD in those packs are exclusive frame colors; only the olive as seen a general release.

(The white one, is matte white, while the pearl one in the general release is a white frame with sparkles in it.)

I love the shoes, they are the Sequel models, very confortable and gets a lot of attention, they come with the choice of 2 sets of laces, very cool.

I give these packs a 4 because of the original pricing, it was way too much, they did not sell well, fortunately they all ended up on Ebay for cheap.

The other reason is because at that price, they could have gone with iridium and other lens to match the fluoro MDs instead of putting grey in them, it doesnt help the crystal frames that are so dark they look like black most of the time.

The shoulder strap it comes too is uselless its at a too straight angle that its akward to put it on your shoulder, I use the handle.

*On a side note, Phil discovered that some MDs from some of the fluoro came with dark grey instead of grey, they must have switch if they didnt have any grey lens left.

Frame: Olive

I bought this pack because my wife insisted that it was pretty. It's cool to have it, but nothing is in my size (I'd never wear any of it for fear of damage). These were my first pair of Monster Dogs. Cool enough, but really not my style.
O-TasMiC -
My friend had this frame color on his prescription Eye Jackets, I was very envious of them. They also have a cool name which happens to not describe them at all.
DarkJuliet -
A little darker than FMJ gunmetal. My theory is that they're actually the same formula basically, but slightly different by generation, much like X-Metal plasma differs generation to generation. A fine frame finish.
LEX7 -
I have this on the eye jacket and its basically the same colour as pencil lead once you scribble on paper.
a dark blacky grey.
Dann -
A wonderful frame that is matte but still shines. The paint has bits of metal mixed in to create a nice finish that although can crack, looks very nice.
banarno -
Nice frame colour,but there are better versions out there,such as the FMJ 7.62.
junfatt -
I would give them five because they really make colour lens like fire, ice, emarald... look special. And they are very easy take care.
Ed -
OK but nothing special. The matte light silver is a bit generic. I feel it is a bit too whitish and not "silver" enough.
oogie -
5.56 seems to be abou the same FMJ color you see now (like in OTT). A great color, for sure, gives an aluminum look to any style. Back when o-matter frames ruled the Oakley collections, FMJ was the only way to go!
Rick -
This was the first frame that turned me on to Oakley back in the day. Apart from having been the first time I heard the term "Full Metal Jacket", I was attracted to the high quality look of this frame. It is flashy and harkens back to the old days of extreme color combos.
sparra -
Got it on XXs, very very cool. Though it has somehow chipped slightly from the arms front edge, still looks cool in all conditions.
XX -
Gives a good look to almost any frames by using this color. However, it is prone to rubbing and chiping off if used in athletic situations. Still, very solid and cool look.
LEX7 -
not too keen on this frame colour as its just a standard silver to me and not a very nice one at that. i prefer the more modern FMJ like you see on the OTT.
TERRORISM -
Grinding metal into small particles, mixing it with paint, and spraying the frames of Oakley shades results in an FMJ finish. The 5.56 version appears "satin white" and could almost pass for metal at first glance. Unique in appearance, the FMJ finish also provides extra strength to the frame without adding extreme weight.
Ian -
It's cool. I seem to like any of the FMJ coatings. They make any pair stand out more than they would have normally.
G -
This with Fire Iridium XX's is what hooked me on Oakley's. However, if they chip, you are with the standout black plastic underneath.

As with all the fmj finishes,the 5.56 is an impressive,wonderful color to have on an o-matter pair.Since the o-matter sunglasses were usually the base ones for oakley,the fmj models were a very significant upgrade to all collections.You instantly knew that you were dealing with something more expensive and different compared to all this o-that was around.The fmj coated sunglasses,actually seemed to belong into a league of their own,closer to the wires,that the o-matter ones.The 5.56 specificly,was a raw silverish to white tint,which can be very bright sometimes,and it's really wonderful.And,hey let's don't forget the added strength too.I'm glad to see them coming back in the newer pit bull.Bring some more!
oogie -
A top FMJ choice for the ages, in my opinion. While the 5.56 color seemed to morph into the most popular FMJ choice currently, the 7.62 had such a deeper, mettalic color ... sort of like a dark mercury color. I just loved it. I have an old Jacket and Straight Jacket in this color ... I still think they are great!
LEX7 -
one of my favourite FMJ colours. i have this on my trenchcoats but am looking for the eye jacket version aswell.
it is like a raw stell sort of silvery grey that sparkles in the sun.
Rick -
I think these are quite a bit darker than the 5.56 (unlike Lex), and I think they are a little too boring. The could have called this one dusty chalkboard, it is just too grey and doesn't have any punch to it. Not a huge fan.
LEX7 -
very very similar to all the other FMJs but mostly to FMJ 45MM
great colour its darker than 45MM but lighter than 5.56
so its great to have all of them finally.
Ed -
Awesome color. The matte dark grey finish is low-key but cool since it's FMJ. Much nicer than the painted dark grey O-Matter.
oogie -
Likely my least favorite FMJ color. I just think the Copper FMJ looks sort of cheap ... almost like a fake oakley color. I have the Topcoats in this color, and they just look so blah with black iridium.
LEX7 -
I am desperate for this colour on the eye jackets.
it looks amazing on the minutes and the topcoats. its such a great colour looks the same as a brand new penny from the MINT.
TERRORISM -
As with nearly all other FMJ finishes, the FMJ Copper has an illustrious shine that distinguishes it from a standard colorway. Despite its ornate appearance, however, the frame still maintains a somewhat "standard" visual appeal (not too flashy). VR28 Black pairs very well with this frame.
LEX7 -
so very sexy, its metalic purple, sadly its on the minutes which i cant stand but if they were on a twenty or a SJ i would gladly wear these.
im just a sucker for a nice FMJ frame.
TERRORISM -
It's somewhat difficult to rate this hue. On the one hand it adds an exciting dimension to the Oakley colorway lineup for frames; on the other hand it's probably not something that someone of the male gender could wear since it almost appears feminine. As with other FMJ finishes, this colorway shines with a metallic aura.

O-TasMiC -
I love this frame color, it is like x-metal with a shiny luster. Judging by the way the minutes look with fmj gunmetal/emerald, x-metal/emerald juliets would look killer.
DarkJuliet -
One of the better FMJ options out there. This color and X-Metal are perhaps two of the best Oakley color options available. However, the FMJ coat is, as stated in other reviews by other reviewers, prone to chipping, rubbing, or buffing. Be careful with this one.
Ed -
Awesome matte dark grey finish, much nicer than the non-FMJ dark grey paint on some O-Matter frames.
LIEUTENANT -
The platinum fmj finish is really amazing.While the fmj 5.56 and fmj+ are certainly brighter and colder,thus being the perfect match for aggresive styles such as the splice,the platinum fmj goes all the way to the other side,and makes everything warm and mellow.I have it on one valve,and it is the perfect match,since it really balances the extreme edges of the frame,and it's still bright with a nice metallic glow.Like all fmj finishes I've used up to now,it managed to withstand the intense abuse,and only after repeated lens changes it chipped right where the lenses press against the frame when you're about to push them into the groove.I knew that this coating would rise up to the occasion.It's too bad I can't have it on the platinum unknown as the unknown is significantly smaller on me.
noel-o -
The color stands out when it's new. But after using it for a while specially when you sweat a lot, you'll notice that the color starts to fade and eventually will turn to black.
dan-E -
I saw this color on a set of M Frames and I thought it was pretty cool. It's darker red, and despite it being FMJ, it's relatively subdued, giving it a nice, classy look.
LEX7 -
this is the red version of electric blue.
a nice colour but id prefer it if it was shiny like some of the other FMJ colours.
cos its rather dark and dull the way it is.
oogie -
I think FMJ Red is a freakin great addition to the Scar family. A wonderful stand-out color, it really shows off the style of the Scar and unique earstem design. A deep, lusterous red ... not shiny at all as Lex7 states. But I think it is a great, unique, color of choice.
splatter -
Pictures can’t do this color justice it’s a really cool color that reminds you of metallic blood.

I only wish that they had a slightly brighter red version to compliment this color more of an red anodized aluminum color.
O-Whores -
We just got the Scar, and agree that this is probably one of our favorite O Matter frame colors. Love how the frame had an iridescent look that seems to morph from red to black as you move. Even the way that the frame feels is sexy.
jumpman73 -
Very flashy color option for a frame. The FMJ red really stands out and is very bold.
TERRORISM -
Oakley was brilliant to have conceived the FMJ concept, as it both strengthens frames and also gives them a striking appearance. Paired with standard Black Iridium lenses, FMJ Red shimmers with a metallic brilliance and looks unstoppable. In short, another winning color conceived and created by mad science.
Ian -
I bought my first "duplicate" pair of Straight Jackets just because of this very beautiful color. By buying another pair of SJs in another color, it cemented the love of collecting. It was this color that sparked the obsession, and remains one of my favorites by a very wide margin.
ShadyOak -
I have a pair of New Eye Jacket's in this color and they are amazing! Pictures really can't capture it accurately, it has a pearlescent quality to it that is awesome! I also like that it is matte in appearance but silky to the touch. Very nice!
BrianJ1888 -
A cool color, similar to the White Chrome that's on the Montoya Splice, but a little less shiny/glossy.
Rick -
I think this frame benefits on the Scar due to the added metal hinge accent. Without that little flash of chrome, I don't think this frame would look near as good. The chrome breaks up the frame and creates interest. It's a nice subtle silver color.
RubyMars -
A flat silver, so you don't have to walk around looking very chrome plated or bright silver. Works well with cold colored lenses. One of the less exciting FMJ's, but the tradeoff is the added versatility because it works with more lenses and outfits.
x-metalman -
Have this on my Splices and I think that it looks nicer than 5.56 even though the differences are very small. Looks great with Ice too.
Ed -
Other than being FMJ, this color is nothing spectacular. The satin silver finish is ok, but I prefer darker shades of FMJ.
Dann -
More grey than its more popular counterpart, FMJ 5.56. This showed up on a few frames and it best compared when using this Ice and Fire Splice.
TheVault -
I find it very bright on my EJ 2.0 sets the black lens nicely.

A good compromised between a dark grey and something like polished aluminium. The kind of frame that will go well with anything.
TERRORISM -
I'll have to give this finish a 3 (perhaps it deserved 4 skulls) due to its lack of attractiveness. Other FMJ finishes such as FMJ Red, Electric Mustard, and especially its more "silver" counterpart FMJ 5.56 are far more appealing to the eye. Still, a nice alternative if you're looking for a full metal jacket frame.

b2r -
I have it on the Splice and it looks good with Ice. Although it is only a small amount of FMJ+ O-Matter on this frame. Sadly they don't use it or FMJ 5.56 on the modern frames.
sparra -
I must admit that the flame styles do look initially quite cool and interesting, but after thinking about it, it just doesn't seem very Oakley. I think it's kind of tacky, but still works okay if you're after something a little different.
Rick -
If my memory serves, these were released during a time when everything had flames on it. Shirts, hats, and then Oakleys. I imagine these were hard to resist for some people, but I have a strong feeling that they look a bit out of place and dated in the old collection now that the whole flame fascination seems to have fizzled out.
BrianJ1888 -
A friend had these, but the silver started to peel and bubble off the frame. I guess some of the FMJ's do this. Also, the flames themselves are a fade from an aqua color to a purple-blue tip.
LEX7 -
these are slightly less boring than the FMJ+ Orange Flames cos at least these have blue flames which do look pretty cool but its over the silver which looks lame. this would have been sooo much better if it was done over a black frame.
Dann -
Flames may seem cliché and convenience store-like, but here they're pulled off very well. The flames work well with the FMJ and create a nice metallic effect.
TERRORISM -
I like the flames. Blue hues matching the ice iridium, set against an FMJ 5.56 frame look fantastic. And the flames even fade from medium to dark blue hues. Add a true metal icon with a metallic finish, and you've got a great combo.
sparra -
I'm not a fan of the flames in general, but on this frame they look worse than others - it just looks messy and out of place.
Rick -
Yup, looks like something that fell of the tacky-wagon. I think Oakley got a little caught up with that flame fascination that took the world by storm in the early years of this century.
LEX7 -
these are really boring, the bright silver just does not look good with the flames. if you want flames go with one of the others.
skylinrcr01 -
my ffavorite kind of frames even though the paint chipped off they look awesome.

There is a fire iridium along with a titanium, 20% grey, and a 24k iridium. They look crazy but I have no idea how to get a hold of them. I put them in the gallery under O-matter so go take a look!

Ran to go buy these when they first came out. They remind me of my Speechless frames. The rubber on the nose peice was an excellent addition... These are the only glasses that not only DO NOT fall off my face under any circumstances, they dont even slide down my nose. Excellent additon to my out of control Oakley sunglass collection.

Frame: Crystal Red
Lens: VR50

An excellent dress Oakley or for just lounging. Very light with a little flex and comfortable, but for small heads, ladies. Weird having the flat lenses though with the o-matter frame. The Crystal Red was very dark and clouded, almost metallic compared to the old Crystal Red. Meant to seem like an every day (fashion) Oakley but not really. I wore this more on overcast days or when I dressed up.
solacevip -
Frame: Black
Lens: HI Blue

These shades have been my signature glasses. Oakley Canada has told me that they have stopped making the Four frame and will concentrate their efforts on the Four-s. The HI Blue lens is a yellow lens coated with blue iridium. Looking through the lens you see yellow and it is a high contrast lens. What is cool (and what I get complimented on) is that the any reflections on the lens seen by people looking wearing the shades, at you appear to be blue. I wear them indoors, every day, all the time. People don't even know or think they are Oakley's despite the signature O icon on the frame. I have the Crystal blue with titanium clear and a Black with titanium clear. The HI lens is the bizz-nezz!
Ed -
Frame: Black
Lens: HI Blue

As a big fan of HI Blue, I felt that I needed a pair of these, especially since they are out of production and getting more scarce. These glasses are very lightweight and fit snugly without being too tight. The zero-wrap frame and square styling are a fun change from the usual Oakley designs. I typically stay away from O-Matter frames without nosebombs, but since these are so light, they stay put on my flat nose and don't touch my cheeks, either. As always, HI Blue brightens up cloudy days nicely.
Rick -
Frame: Black
Lens: Grey
Recently made a deal for the Blade II limited edition. Not so much because I love the style or the colorway, but because I feel this is a special pair due to it being used in the movie. I have it on very good authority that they are quite limited, and I am all about the limited editions. I find that sooner or later everyone wants something that was at one time limited, so I don't deny myself. If I can get my hands on something special; I do it. If it turns out I don't like it, it's probably already worth more than the day I bought it. Like a rare car. This is a cool piece of Oakley and movie memorabilia and I like that.

As far as the Four is concerned, it is a basic, classic, no nonsense pair of shades. Not too dated, but a nice contrast to the beefy square shades that are dominating the market at the moment.
oogie -
Frame: Crystal Blue
Lens: Ti Clear

Pretty much the same fit as the Four S, IMO. However, with slightly larger and squared off orbitals, I think the Four presents a better look (Four S is just too small!). My Ti Clear lens is a bit odd, almost looks too dark (smokey) and not very reflective to be Ti Clear. A neat pair of eyewear, though, to provide a different Oakley look.

As I said in my review of the frame colour, this is a great frame colour but as a combo i think its bad, im gonna get some different lenses put in cos i cant stand TI Clear.

Lens:VR50

As Phil said below, these are more of a Dress Oakley, specially with the Vr50 lens which is most suited for indoor use.
the Crystal Red is alot darker than the Origianl Crystal Red that was in the Classic Frogskins. This new one is more of a dark Rasberry.
Great colour combo though.

i loved the squarish retro design when they first came out and i still do... maybe that's why i picked up my Crystal Blue ones recently. i'd much rather have a black framed pair, but i'm starting to warm up the the Crystal Blue finish. the fit isn't as good as i hoped, the lack of unobtanium causes them to slip off my face, and they're not wide enough for my big head. but still, i like the Fours.

Nearly impossible to find (took me over 2 and a half years to even find one), but it is well worth it. A classic design that's made even a more classic by its appearance in the Blade II movie. A true collector's item if there ever was one.

Frame: Black
Lens: Grey
Just like everyone else, I love the retro style of these. Another great example of a "fashion" glass which shows Oakley's versatility. I'm thinking about getting the HI Blue style, just cuz they're a little cooler. One of the bows on my pair kinda flops around like it's loose, but I can't see any cracks or anything else, so I'll just chalk it up to me getting an odd pair. The only minor drawback is that since they are so straight across the front, they do let in a lot of light from the side. The overall style more than makes up for this inconvience.
O.T.T. -
Frame: black
Lens: HI Blue

I wanted a pair since seeing Blade. I got the black/grey ones for my wife but she didnt like them and I sent them back as I preferred the HI Blue ones. Reason for the low rating is the reflections on the inside of the lenses due to a lack of curvature.

I am contemplating getting contacts so I can wear these on murky days.

Oakley Shoe Fan -
I have two pairs of these, a Khaki/Chocolate and the Grey. Awesome shoe, most insane grip. Very comfortable as well. For any fan of skate shoes.
These are sort of a flash back to Spline lifestyle shoe
splatter -
I agree with TekDragon on all aspects of the case.
However I am under the impression this was a salesman’s item to carry samples. In addition, I have seen these labeled as blades cases.
TekDragon -
This is one of my favorite cases. I wish they'd update this one. I'm sure most of you, like me, have multiple pairs of Oakleys and having a bunch of the individual cases laying around is a little messy and kind of a pain. I think the original idea was a place to put multiple M-Frames since on the right side there are 3 "lens" slots, and area for extra earsocks, and then four larger openings for frames with glasses. I use all seven slots for glasses. I have metal frames up front and larger glasses in the other openings. I used to have only one, but have been very lucky on e-Bay and found two others. For all you with big collections out there, I don't think there's a better way to go (if you can find them).

I was just so impressed with the look of the black frames and fire lenses, it was a must have. I would also rave about the HI Blue lens in the Four. The precursor for the Mag Four S (gosh, naming department went all out!), this style is just great for presenting something that isn't so wrap-around. Something different is always to be admired.
RubyMars -
Frame: Black
Lens: Fire

I love the retro look of these. I was never a fan of the Fire lense, but seeing them in this frame with no base curve made them look awesome. It seems like such a better mirror and the coloring is so much better with no curve. Overall a very nice, lightweight, appealing pair of shades. One note, because of the flat nature of the curve, there is a reflection on the inside of the lense (aka, I can see my ears if i look in the side of the lense). This can be fairly distracting, but you also get used to it.

My first and all time favourite Oakley! Can't believe that the Four S fit my face perfectly. The coverage and wrap isn't as good as most models but the fit is simply amazing. Even without the unobtainium ear socks, they never once slid out even when I'm sweating under the hot sun. I wish oakley made polarized replacement lenses for the Four S. Other than that, it's a perfect lifestyle sunglass. This is getting 5 skulls from me!

Okay the 3 stars isn't for fit or comfort, or anything related to modern day glasses wearing. They're just a really cool vintage pair and a rare one too boot. I'm trying to complete my vintage collection, and needed one model from the original frogskins. I figured this would be a good one.

On a side note, there's classic and modern frogskins, but also of the classic models, there's two generations. Mine is the first with metal hinges and printed logos. Gen 2 has plastic hinges and raised logos.

Overall a nice piece for the display cabinet.

I have to admit I do like these, even if Oakley "borrowed" from the Ray-Ban Wayfarer. Not the most comfortable in the world and as I remember, they had a lot of problems with cracking/breaking. Definitely classic Oakley though since this was one of their first few styles.

Frame: Wildberry n' Milk
Lens: Grey

Finally tracked down this last color. It cost me a bit, but it's all worth in in the end. Be nice if I could get some mint lenses at some point. Frogskins tend to be a bit front heavy and the bulge in the lens makes them a nice resting spot, which leads to dead center scuffing. But I don't dare wear these for the historical value and color scheme. I just rest know they're all together.

I bought these just for the sake of collecting, and to try them on. I think they look goofy, and they don't fit my head.

Totally 80's. I had two pairs of these - first one was really early with the metal hinge, which eventually broke at one of the temples. The second was plastic hinge, and they have survived.

Very cool for a vintage look, but they don't work on everyone.

It's cool to have examples of all 3 generations of Frogskins, and look at the differences. 1st Gen is actually my second favorite, behind 2nd Gen, in terms of fit and sturdiness. I also actually like the metal hinges. And obtaining the elusive Royal Blue pair didn't hurt my keenness on them either.

At the time I purchased these back in the early 90's, this shape/style frame was very popular, and Oakley's version added something very special. First, the colors and overall look was very different and exciting, and second, the quality craftsmanship far exceeded the usual and more common version of this style sunglasses made by other companies. I remember feeling so cool in these shades, however at this point, I wouldn't be caught dead in them - unless I was at an 80's party or bar. The fact that I no longer like this shape/style of sunglasses is the only reason that I didn't give these the full 5 skull rating.

Lens: The lenses are very big and fit nicely around your eyes. I enjoy the Fire Iridium just because of the Iridium effect in the summer.

Great retro styling. I remember staring at my classmates in envy as they paraded around in these when i was in Junior high/Senior high. I could only afford dollar store pairs. Well, now, I can afford these and they can't! Who's laughing now!?!?!? Anyway, I digress.

Great styling, incredibly ididium coating. These actually fit in front of my wife's prescription versace frames and hide the arms and the lenses. She LOVES these glasses and won't let me wear them. Ah well. I love they way they look. Great nostalgic value.

Frame: Black
Lens: Grey

Classic styling. All day comfort. Wore these on a 19 degree day in Manhattan. Kept the wind out of my eyes and provided excellent coverage. As always, the HDO keeps things from getting distorted. Although, at first glance they look like everyone else's attempt at retro, the logo on the arms screams otherwise.

Frame: Lutzka edition
Lens: Violet

These are very awesome sunglasses that generally stand out in my case.It is interesting to me how many people just absolutely love them. The fit is pretty good and despite the size of the box they are a pretty large wear. It is really a cool frame with Lutzka on one side and appropriately "Good Livin" on the other! They are excellent.

Frame: Crystal Red
Lens: Red Iridium
This is my favorite generation of Frogskins, as they fit nice and tight and feel rock solid on and off your face. Also Crystal Red/(+)Red Iridium is my favorite Oakley colorway of all time, so I was overjoyed to pick these up.
The Game -
Frame: Navy
Lens: Chrome Iridium

I wasn't too sure about the frogskin LX's at first because when I switched from the Jupiter to the Jupiter LX the fit was very different. I tried them on multiple times before I pulled the trigger. They definitely have a more solid feel than the regular frogskins. The navy/chrome combo is by far the best combo to come out of the first run. If you like wearing frogs you will like these very much. I'd also like to add that frogskin lenses fit into the LX frame.

Frame: Crystal
Lens: Black

Not the pair to relive past glories in. It was a complete 360 from the classic Frogskins and had a large fit. The arms were thin and the pattern on them wasn't great (unlike the bubbles on the Fives). Released before the Fives and not my recommendation out of the two.
LEX7 -
Frame:White
Lens:Blue Iridium

I have to disagree with Phil, I love how retro these look, they have a big goofy look which is just funny.
They have huge lenses and the white looks soo good with the blue lens.
very comfortable and fit well.
These are a great classic addition to my collection.
LEX7 -
Frame:Texas Tea
Lens:Gold Iridium

Same goes with these about fit and comfort as the other ones I have reviewed.
But I felt I had to mention this frame colour.
It looks so cool and weird, its very similar to the Gold X frame colour which is available in the original eye jackets.
Looks great with the sun shinning on them and plus it has the Gold Iridium lens which compliments the frame perfectly.
I highly recommend this frame if you can find it.

Frame: Black
Lens: Grey

I really like these glasses. I like the large fit and the unobstructed view I get from them. I only wish I would have bought the polarized version. I can attest to their impact resistance as well. Mine have a "dent" on the bridge from an unidentified object that struck me in a boat going about 55mph. I thought for sure the glasses came apart, but I was able to pick up the earpieces, snap them back on and continue no worse for wear.

These glass are tough to keep on though. The thin earpieces combined with no rubber lets them easily fall off if you look down at your feet.

Frame:Matte Clear
Lens:Black Iridium

Another Damn cool clear frame, Im hoping to have all of them one day.
a bit boring that it comes with black iridium, as i think it would look amazing with a gold iridium lens.
very cool.

Fit is super comfortable but styling is sorta blah but what can you expect from an entry level glass.

Frame: glow in the dark (Trevor Andrew)
Lens: bronze

Purely on a cosmetic angle these glasses are great. The lense quality is still better than any other wayfarer brands out there. A must have for any collector. However they could really use an iridium coating on the lens (possibly 5 star). Not the best coverage, not to be used for any type of active lifestyle. But the n again thats not really the target audience of anyone interested in these

I was impressed with these, not sure quite how to pull of the huge BCG look but I like how purple the lenses are and that they are limited. 4 X

Frame: Rootbeer
Lens: Gold Iridium

Best damn sunglasses I've ever owned. Performance was second to none, no glare, comfortable to the point that I forgot I was wearing them. Perfection.

Unfortunately, I lost them years ago. If anyone knows where I can find these kinds (this model) of sunglasses again, I would be eternally grateful.

Awesome old school colour used on the Eyejackets.
Shame they didn’t use this a lot more.

Bring these back Oakley PLEASE! I really like this color a lot. Hopefully since Oakley is bringing back the razorblades they'll bring these back in the Jackets with this color.

This is the third member of the crackle series, this one is basically metalic green lizard skin with black lines.
amazing looking, my favourite out of the 3.
finally i have all of them.

Most excellent!!! I loved this color then and I still love it now.

Frame: Tortoise
Lens: Bronze Polarized

From the lens coverage, to the fit, this is an oversize version of the Gascan with, as Ian said, some rounded edges like the Hijinx/Antix. Like the Gascan, the shape will look good on most people. People with smaller heads should probably stick with the Gascan or Gascan S, but if you want a larger look or more coverage this could be a good option.

The fit is also a mix of the Gascan and Hijinx. It has the width of the Hijinx, but the earpieces are shorter and don't curve as much. For people who don't like a tight fitting sunglass this could be plus, but they may have a tendency to slide like the Gascan if you are very sweaty.

There are some nice features on the frame. Some pairs have a mix of polished and matte finishes. It would be cool to see some 2-tone frames in the future. How 'bout a black or grey Ducati edition with a red insert on the side.

Overall the finish and durability is excellent as with most o-matter frames. The coverage and optical clarity is great. If the Gascan is a 4.5 these are a 4, because the larger size makes them less versatile.

Frame: Matte Black Custom

I love these glasses! Get tons of compliments on these frames. They are my favorite plastic framed Oakleys! They are comfortable and the lens are great. Highly recommend this frame to those that like a larger set of glasses with full coverage.

Frame: Polished White/Polished Clear
Lens: Black Iridium/Violet Iridium

They're cool enough. I bought two pairs as soon as I was able to find them. I haven't been disappointed. They're obviously an evolution to the Gascan, and responses from people trying mine have been overly positive. They have a taller and wider orbital than the Gascan, so for a larger face, they're much better. They're right in-between the Gascan and the Hijinx when it comes to both size and shape. In fact, it's like to designer took a picture of both and hit "merge" to come up with the Fuel Cell. The aspect of them that I appreciate most is fairly subtle: The ear stems on many of the models have both polished and matte finishes. Like I said, subtle, probably not a selling point, but as far as I know, this is the first example of Oakley doing such a thing.


In retrospect, they really remind me of the Tens...

Frame: polished black
Lens: warm grey

Just got these in today. They feel extremely light for something this size. They are much more comfortable and fit better than the Gascans. A new, modern and nice look. The matte and polished combo on the earstems adds uniqueness to these beauties. Work of art. Thanks Oakley.

Frame: Polished Clear
Lens: Violet Iridium

I bought this pair because after trying them on at the store, I realized, I have nothing like it. The majority of my collection are "jacket-type" glasses. This squared off look is somewhat oldschool, but contemporary because of the color scheme.

They fit surprisingly well. They do tend to slide on my face since there are no unobtainium parts at all, esp on the ear stems and nose bridge. So if I start sweating, they start moving. To its credit, these weren't meant for sporty activities, therefore it functions as intended for "fashion" or driving purposes. They also don't squeeze the head like a jacket does.

I gave it a 4 because they do tend to fog up a bit. I'm not sure if these lenses are Hydrophobic... I don't remember if I removed an H sticker when I bought it. They also tend to get skin oil faster than my other pairs. Wiping them clean is also more difficult because of the deeper recess cavity of the lens.

Still, overall, a head turner and cool design, esp in this color scheme.

Nice color combination of the lens and frame. Really fits me well for a big head like me.

Head turner! Nice one Oakley!

Why hasn't the Limited Edition Canvas Fuel Cell been added to this site? They are awesome.

I thought these would look too much like my hijinx on my face but they still have a distinguished look compared to the hijinx they are not as bulky on the sides and fit the look of the skinnier faced person

Frame: SI Fuel Cell/Matte Blk/Grey US Flag Icon

Took 4days to get'em easy to clean they fit great, on occasion i find myself fogging these up when it gets to hot, but other than that great fit n finish on these bad boys!

Frame: Troy Lee
Lens: Black Iridium

First of all, I love the fact that Oakley is finally replacing the gascan. The fuel cell is WAY better than the gascan in every way. It fits much better to my face, it looks way better, and the art work stands out beautifully. The only down fall is that it sits so close to my face my eyelashes touch the inside of the lenses.

Frame: Polished White/England Icon
Lens: Ruby Iridium

I bought these at Melbourne Airport, and got a very good price. At the time I thought they were a better fit for me than Gascans, but after a couple a weeks and numerous photos, they are too big for me. Lovely glasses, really nice to be patriotic but subtle,but my head is a tad too small for these. You big headed people will be very impresses.

Fuel Cell LIVESTRONG Edition.


I don't know why almost everybody says "lenses fog up" like they think its cool. I've never had any Oakley lens fog up no matter what I'm doing. Lenses do attract skin oil and is difficult to remove. Dust is also a small tedious problem. Left eye lens has "LIVESTRONG" engraved. Lenses are perfect for very bright days, but indoors or low light, these are darker than a ************. Frame is comfortable. I don't have a small head but not a large either, so there are some days where the fit can be tight around the ears. I'm thinking it could be from the frame pulling on my hair. Played golf in these and had no problems with them sliding down my nose. Definitely a great style if you don't want the curve appeal of the hijinx or need more space then the gascans.

Frame: Don Pendleton Artist Series
Lens: Warm Grey

These are probably the coolest looking artist series frames I have. Usually the fuel cell has the polished arms with the matte finish in the middle. These are the reverse! The artwork actually feels like they painted it themselves. It is rough and you can actually feel the lines. The artwork itself is beautiful. I love my London Police Gascan's, but the artwork on these blow those away!

On to the actual glasses themselves. The fit is absolutely terrible for Asian Faces. I have a Medium sized head, and it isn't that they look too big; the nose piece in the middle just doesn't close tightly enough and isn't jutting out like some other Asian fit glasses. That's the only reason I'm actually able to wear the normal Gascan's. The arm's are extremely comfortable. They wrap real nicely and don't put pressure like the Gascan's do. It's a real shame these don't fit correctly. It's a beautiful piece and to any collection. I'm surprised how easy these are to find still. Any collector should really grab them while they can!

I got my Fuel Cell pre loved for about$75 last 23 April. I'm used to wearing my Monster Dog which I thought have wide lenses but when I got my Fuel Cell, they were even wider. I came to love my Fuel cell and I like the way they offer some protection to the periphery of your eyes.

To bad my 15 year old son also liked it very much so I only am able to wear them when my son's not using any glasses (which is very seldom).

Weight 36 grams. I bought the Rust Decay version heavily discounted from an outlet store in Melbourne. They, of course are no different to any polarized rust Fuel Cell, but are 3-6 times the price. They feel nice and tight on my big noggin (59 cm circumference head). The arms fold in nice and tight and the front part of the frame even has cutouts for the arms to fold into. It's a nice touch. There are no nose or arm pieces which means they're not as comfortable to wear. Eye coverage is excellent and because the arms are so wide, side light is not an issue at all. I didn't buy the Asian Fit version, so these will "rest" on some cheeks if you're Asian.

The rust decay finish is very nice. I was a little concerned that pieces may "flake off" and damage the lens if you're cleaning them, but this is not the case (at least not for the last 3 months I've had them). Every pair seems to be slightly different due to the variability in the rusting process.

Appearance wise, only aficionados will be able to spot the difference between "rust coloured" and "rust painted" sunglasses, but it is nice to have ownership of a (hopefully) unique pair of sunglasses. I suspect that the square rusted metal vault case they came in will outstrip the value of these glasses in time to come.

This watch got a bad rap from the start. I am even ashamed to say that I judged it harshly just seeing the picture. It took me nearly a year to try one on and I did it just out of curiosity. Little did I know how quickly my attitude would change seeing it on my wrist and how EXTREMELY DIFFERENT this piece was from all the others.
I bought the Stainless Steel with a white face, and I must say it looks at SH*T TON different on your wrist than in a picture or on display. THIS WATCH is one BAD mother, and I love it. The color scheme makes it possible to wear it in EVERY situation. From a daily “beater” (as I have read some call it) to a corporate meeting, but you have to put one on before you say I’m wrong.
The design immediately SCREAMS Oakley when you are wearing it. That is what Oakley time pieces are when the Unobtainium hits the road right? That is why most of us invest in Oakley; because the design is ALWAYS second to none.
My suggestion is that Oakley hire hand or wrist models for their watches, because it is IMPOSSIBLE to make a decision on a hefty purchase without seeing what it MIGHT look like on your wrist.

Having something NO ONE else has is awesome, and FUSE BOX more than makes that possible.

Bought the yellow / black color way which in my opinion is the best-looking of the three. The design is definitely eye catching. The "D" shape bezel gives it unique feel and would definitely stand out among all the round shaped watches out there.
