lets you customise your m frames even more, so you have a pair that's hopefully more unique than the others haha
love the white earsocks on a black frame, with my +red lens ..

Very very easy to use. Slides right on and off. Good to have around to replace torn earsocks from ware and tear.

Frame: FingerPrint
Lens: Gray


I picked these up as my first M-frames...vintage look and feel. For a bigger head, the 67 lens is quite small, but beyond that, these are great all around sport sunglasses. My only complaint, and it's mostly because of age, is that the nose piece typically is loose.
TERRORISM -
Frame: Crystal Blue
Lens: 67

The 67 was a relatively short-produced style, perhaps because of its close resemblance to the old Hybrid lens. Nonetheless, this lens maintains a unique look for the M Frame lineup even to this day. Combining straight-edge architecture on the bottom of the lens with a slight curve where the upper edge of the lens meets the frame, this piece suits those with medium or smaller profiles. Finding this lens (any color) in new condition is a true rarity. Hopefully Oakley will bring back some of the older M Frame (Mumbo) color/lens configurations, as the 67 would be a true asset to that endeavor.

Frame: neon yellow
Lens: black/black iridium/persimmon
very similar to the old hybrid lenses, and very hard if not impossible to find-i got mine by mistake in a mint set and i am so glad-my favourite of all the vintage lenses.
the straight profile accross the bottom of the lense makes all the difference.

Color: Black

This vault holds one complete M-Frame, two additional lenses (with nose pieces), and one spare nose piece. The divided, felt-covered foam insert does not hold on as tightly as the insert in the Half Jacket Soft Vault, so things may shift a bit during use. This case is pretty big, but it holds a large amount of hardware and, like all the soft vaults, looks quite nice with the ballistic nylon shell and gunmetal raised icon.

This case is great to carry your M frames and your extra lenses around. This makes traveling so much easier.

Color: Black

Got this off ebay with my M-Frames it's an awesome blend of form and function. It's a little cumbersome to carry around on its own but they're great to throw in my sport bag when I'm going to play sports. A must if you own more than one M-frame.

Color: Black
If you can fit this to go with you then this is a must have for your m-frame. Two extra lens spots is great, you don't really need more than 3 choices for a trip anyways. This is obvious oakley quality and design and does its job perfectly = A+

Color: Black

Got this one accidentally along with my Mag M Frame thinking it was the smaller case. It's pretty good considering all the things you can put in it as Ed details, but it really is massive, one you'd have to stick in a seperate bag. Luckily I have one of the smaller cases for my Dartboards that fit the Mag M Frame (I think it's the Medium Soft Vault) so if you're after a small case that can hold the Mag M Frame without any extra lenses, go for that one, though I doubt that'll hold the standard O-Matter M Frame.

These are great if you swap out lens often and are on the go.

I use mine on campus with to hold a clear lens to use as safty glasses

the best part is this case isn't huge compaired to square cases of a previous generation
mason65 -
I love this case, plenty of storage for your lenses, although heaters can be a bit of a tight fit. I wish it could hold more lenses, but then again i wouldnt really want the case to be any bigger than it is.
SpeedyJ -
This one is great...
It is not to big considering the amount of hardware you put in it.
The extra volume give me a safe feeling when I'm on the move.

For a smaller case or vault for one pair you should look further..

I have the US Standard Issue case. It works great. I'm glad it was the clip. I can clip it to my belt of store it in my bag. It's a little bigger than I thought bout it's got tone of room

Very versatile case, can carry just about any pair of glasses, as well as a broken down M Frame with 3 lenses. A bit bulky on the outside however.

Frame: Blue/Strike
Lens: Slate Iridium

This was definitely a very nice pair of sunglasses for baseball use. I've used this for sports, and just regular purposes as well. However, the hinge isn't really meant for people with a wide head like me. Due to that, one hinge broke off but nevertheless, it was nice pair of shades.

Frame: FMJ 5.56
Lens: Fire Iridium

WOW! These are a very different fire lens to what I was expecting - on the Mags, the fire was very much orange, with yellow to green on the edges. However, on this pair, the lens is very much reddy pink to orange - and it looks incredible. Usual M-frame quality, but with lovely fire Icons to match. Stand out from the usual M-frame crowd with these.

Frame: Rootbeer

These are great glasses, very, very similar to regular M Frames, in fact I cant really tell a differance other than the vented lenses. None the less, they are M frames and they deserve 5 stars.

Frame: J Black
Lens: G30, Ir

I bought these not for my golfgame but for my cycling and running.
The lenss colour is absolutely great. Lots of clarity and depth.
The vented lens keeps the glasses from fogging when you'r standing still.
I also bought a +red lens and a HI yellow for in the forrest and bad weather. The array case makes it complete and worth every buck (or Euro for that matter)
As O-Tasmic says it's no different to a regular M-frame and of course 5 out of 5

Frame: Crystal Clear
Lens: Blue Iridium Heater

These were my first pair of Oakleys ever, and the ones responsible for my future as an Oakley whore. It's too bad they got stolen but I'll still have fond memories of just how well they worked when playing sports. That and since it was when these were still a relatively new design, some of the stares were priceless. My current frame fit and look better but it's a small step for what was already an outstanding design.

Lens: black iridium heater

Like many, this was my first and will always remain special to me. It cracked in many places but held for 10 years of day in day out use only to be (out of warranty) replaced by a thicker opaque black frame. I miss them sometimes.

Frame: Crystal Clear
Lens: Black Iridium Heater

This was my first pair of Oakleys as well, and I immediately fell in love with the great fit. The heater lense provided great protection, and they were incredibly light. Unfortunately, the I haven't had much luck with the clear frames that Oakley has made. These cracked in half after only a year, and I had the same problem with the first straight jacket model, although it had just smaller cracks not and didn't actually completely break apart. I have a fairly large head which might have been part of the problem.

Frame: Black
Lens: Grey Heater

This is the pair that started it for me. My dad bought me them when I was 12, and I took such good care of them for many years. One day, I was taking them off after a round of golf and they split. I was DEVASTATED. I called Oakley to see if they were still covered under warranty, and they told me to send them in. Four weeks later, I got a brand spankin' new Pro M-Frame. They got a customer for life.

I'm giving these a rating of 4 because they're too prone to break, especially the crystal frames, which I have a pair of now as well. They give the best coverage for any conditions, and they were some of the first interchangeable lens sunglasses ever. They're SUPER light, and fit extremely well, unless you wear a hat, then they're a little tight under the brim. The first and second gen black frames I have now are going to be in my collection forever as a reminder of how it all started.

Serious fan of the 1st Gen M Frame and previous Mumbo. Not my firt Oakley though but something of their weird shape really pleases me. When they first came out, it was like "waouh what are these?" And it was triathlete Mark Allen wearing them at the Nice intrnational triathlon in... 1990 or 91...

Great, lightweight glasses...perfect for numerous sporting activities. These are my second set of M-Frames, but my first pair with the Heater lens. However, the setup is classic and has made Oakley what it is.

Frame: M Frame Metallic Blue
Lens: G30

A great frame for activities. I use mine for biking and softball. There is never any fogging and the G30 lens is a good all-round pick. The signature can only be seen slightly out of peripheral vision. I will likely get another lens or two to save this one. I'm not worried about the stiffness aspect of the frame (vs. the Pro-Ms) and these seem like they can take it all for years.

The frame color is a dark blue and unique to this frame. Adding to the distinctiveness is the "Texas" O-logo.
fullback -
Frame: Matte Black
Lens: G26

The heaters are HUGE!!! They nearly cover half of my face. Due to the structure of my asian face, the outer edges of the lenses touch my cheeks. For people with small faces, I'd recommend the Hybrid or Hybrid S. Wearing the heaters would make you look ridiculous .... However, the frame itself is quite comfortable, even more than the Half Jackets. The longer earstems grip slighly behind the ears (not the temples), adding to the comfort. Definitely a must for those who are active and looking for a classic Oakley look.

Had the heaters cause they fit my big noggin the best. The other lens shapes were definitely cooler, but seemed to sleek back in the day. Nowadays, I don't think much of any of the M-Frames, so I'm not too thrilled with the style. With so many other options for sports (Racing Jackets), I think there are better choices.

Frame: White Camo
Lens: G30, Clear, Persimmon
These are the only pair of sunglasses i have ever been able to wear comfortably for long periods of time. I often forget I am wearing these they are so comfortable and lightweight. The earstems really grip your head without squeezing too tight. Coverage is unmatched by anything on the market with the exception of maybe the football shield and snow goggles. The heater lens is quite large and it can touch my cheeks but i would rather that than losing coverage. My only gripe is the cost of polarized lenses and the limited selection in colors for polarized lenses. Overall, I dont see any sunglasses ever replacing these for me.
zippy8 -
Frame: Night Camo.
Lens: Black Iridium

Sports glasses, pure and simple. You're going to look pretty silly wearing these if not participating in some athletic event.

But if you are, these are the ones to wear - totally secure, huge coverage with few stray angles for light to creep in.

Drawbacks ? They take up a lot of room and without the case are pretty much guaranteed to get scratched.

Frame: Black
Lens:Grey

I used these when in the fire academy for safety glasses (I have the SI Safety lens). They're great! I noticed that, when wearing the safety lens, there was virtually NO glare. My eyes were protected and I felt confident when performing extrication procedures. The frames are lightweight and the unobtanium allows you to sweat and the glasses to stay on. I have a very small face and was never really into the M Frame but I decided to get these. I've used them on fire calls and also on the golf course. I also love being able to change the lenses on the fly. Very simple yet Oakley signature look.

Review: Frame: Matte Black
Lens: VR28

I actually have the SI M-Frame that is typically used by the military or law enforcement (dark icons instead of silver). Great fit, very snug, and lenses are easy to swap. Hybrid S is the perfect shape for smaller faces. VR28 is a good tint for all but the brightest light conditions.

Frame: Metallic Blue (Lance Armstrong)
Lens: G30 Vented

OK, so this review is going be very emotionally biased and the rating isn't really based on anything objective.

Lance Armstrong is my idol. I've lost several family members to cancer so his story and his work to fight this ravaging disease make him god-like in my eyes.

I don't wear these glasses. These are strictly a collector's item for me. I'm still trying to track down the older Pro version with the FMJ/Ice color combo (for a reasonable, yet premium price that is).

In general, the M-Frame really doesn't suit me. I love the style and would love to be able to use it for shooting and cycling (not the Signature Edition, of course). Unfortunately, they just don't have enough flex for me to wear without getting a headache. I've thought about getting another pair and then trying to adjust them with a hair dryer or heat gun. But considering that the shield lens is probably part of the structure and likely to bend the frame back in again, I didn't want to chance shelling out extra cash for an experiment.

Frame:M Frame Metallic Red
Lens:Hybrid S + Red Iridium

A classic pair of shades in a sharp combination. The frames are really great, somewhere between Half Jackets and Radar (real sports glasses), and the lens is a more good looking version of the old Grey tint. Good for clear weather and mixed conditions.

Frame: White Camo
Lens: Ice Iridium

Sweet frame color! It's not listed here but maybe should be? The M Frame has a unique feature - it can vary the height of the frame between lens styles, which is something the Radar gives up with the nosepiece attachment design. The Hybrid S is the smallest and shortest of the M frame lenses, and it fits me perfectly! Usually I wore Sweep, but the frame would hit my eyebrows. With the shorter hybrid S, the frame sits right where it should. The M frame now has a new usefulness to me, and my radars have been sitting on the shelf unused.

Frame: Matte black
Lens: Gray
Nice frame for smaller faces, and the smaller hybrid s lens fits my face nicely and I have a narrow face. I have played golf with them, and they performed beautifully. The only problem that I have is that the etched "oakley" on the lens gets in the field of view sometimes, but other than that they are one of my favorite Oakleys.
TERRORISM -
Frame: Crystal Red
Lens: +Red

Breathing new life into an almost double-decade old product, Oakley resurrects the classic Crystal Red colorway for the New M Frame. The translucent, yet colorful frame brings back nostalgic feelings from its Mumbo predecessor, yet embodies the newer, sleeker style of the New M Frame. Paired with +Red Iridium, these glasses are almost impossible to beat! About the only way Oakley could have topped this effort would have been to ship these in a clear acrylic box with the updated Oakley stretch logo.
kingphilbert -
Frame: all collegiate
Lens:

In my eyes this line wasn't necessary at all. Providing schools with certain styles in their colors is great but to release them all seems tedious and takes away from better color comps in the regular lines. I guess the fans will go nuts to own a pair in their school or teams color though. Closest to getting a custom pair as well since they were not mainstream Oakley releases.
EastCoast -
Frame: Smoke
Lens: +Red Iridium (Original Hybrid)

Much better fit than the old, fangless Gen 1 M Frame. Peripheral vision is unmatched.
Great for biking, and the +Red lens is a good lens for varying light conditions as long as it's not night. The Smoke frame is very very nice, it's a metallic grey. The metal icons are a nice touch, much nicer than the painted raised ones on the Pro M Frame.
However: the arms get wobbly. You don't notice this when wearing them because the frame is stable then, but taking them on and off I wonder how long they will hold out. However, they have been going strong for a few years now so it's not so bad, just there's room for improvement. The lens interchangeability is great and easy but you'll pay a lot for spares - the Iridium lenses in Canada cost as much as a non-Iridium Five 2.0 (!) and almost as much as a Monster Dog.

Frame: Navy (Michigan) M-Frame
Lens: 24K Hybrid

Being a Michigan grad, what could be more appropriate than a pair of official Michigan Oakleys? I saw these in some local stores and really wanted them, but I just couldn't justify the $165 retail price. Well, patience paid off for once, as I found these on eBay and only paid $70. The Navy frame is a beautiful deep metallic blue and has yellow/gold icons true to the Michigan colors. The 24K lens has a small block 'M' etched into the lower left corner. It is almost unnoticeable unless you are looking for it, but it's still cool. I'm not sure if it's a result of the large size of the M-Frame lens, but the 24K Iridium fades to a bluish color near the edges of the lens... interesting.

The laser lense is awesome to look through,it washes every colour out exept reds,and hints of yellows.
I looked into my neighbours back garden with them on,and the red flowers just stuck out,they looked so bright and crisp.
Your eye is just drawn to the colour red,so they certainly do there job.
No wonder the lense used to cost about $150.(if you worked for the military)

Frame: Carbon Fiber, soon to be FMJ 5.56
Lens: Grey
The M-Frame style is where oakey came from, and continues. I never wear them for casual, but are my usual choice for cycling. I love the interchangable lenses, and block out the sun and light well. They do fog a little on climbs, but the vented style might help on this. Still, great glasses. Be careful when replacing earsocks on the earstems. They can break with a little bit of effort. Mine broke and they are replacing with my choice of color which is nice of them FMJ 5.56

Frame: White Camo
Lens: Black Iridium
My first lens for my first set of M Frames. Having a larger head, I was in the market for a heater or strike size, but since these were 50% off at my local sunglass hut I figured I would give them a try. The coverage is solid, and the black is...dark. The black is almost too dark for most days, but is great for the right day. Overall this was a very wise purchase and I am very happy with my shades.

Frame: New Blue

I've written before that these are the perfect shades for athletic

again, bought these on standardissue and they are pretty sick, I like them because they are not open to the public and I dont have to worry about lots of people having them.

I dont know how effective they are agains lasers, I even tested it with a green laser and of course it is still super bright though the lens.

Frame: FL Burgundy
Lens: Gold Iridium

M Frames are arguably the backbone of Oakley's heritage. Incorporating some of the most sophisticated interchangable lens options with pollaric ellipsoid lens geometry, a secure yet comfortable three-point fit and durable architecture, this sunglass represents the pinnacle of both innovation and technology. Pairing a unique colored frame (burgundy) with gold iridium results in a winning combo. Anyone should be proud to add the collegiate editions to their collection - if one can find them.

Man, do I miss the days of old. This box exemplifies Oakley's heritage with its clear acrylic composition coupled with a "frosted" (translucent) border. Open and close it too often, however, and the hinges break.

Hydrid S/Black Iridium

Dann's right this was an odd style. I still use mine. It is the best racket ball safety glasses I've ever seen or used. The foam strip for stopping sweat isn't removable, which is a little nasty, but still a great pair of glasses with plenty of ventilation.

Frame: Fingerprint
Lens: Black Iridium, Clear

One of the odder models to come out, the lens is HUGE. The strap on the back was designed for basketball in mind, and many of the players at the time used these. The foam around the brow was used for sweat control, but with an older item like this, I don't dare. They're not as common nowadays, but I was lucky to find a mint in box pair for not too much.

Hrm - not quite satisfied with this. I mean, it holds and protects my M Frames okay, but still compresses a bit too much. I have a hybrid lens and still it seems to be an awkward fit. I bought this when it first came out and it was much better than the half-moon vault. Hasn't broken or anything, but the array case is far better, with foam to hold the frame/lens and spares.
If you want something to hold a pair of M Frames, this case is okay and won't really disappoint. Still, if you can, get the array case.

Hybrid Lens (old style). Sort of torn on this one. My first Oakley frame; it served me well through hard use. Great peripheral vision. The earstems were too short though and the OAKLEY on the stems didn't look very good. Surpassed in all ways by the newer generations.

Frame: Crystal Black
Lens: Black Iridium Strike

This is my very first pair of Oakleys. I really like the Crystal Black frame because it has some color to it but still retains the translucent characteristic. I got the Strike lens because to me it was a bit more subtle of a choice compared to some of the other lens shapes. It is one of the larger lenses but it seems to suit me rather well. Over all the M Frame is a very versatile well designed piece of eyewear.

Frame: Crystal Clear
Lens: Blue Iridium

I bought these at a very young age in order to wear them during Little League games and practices. At the time, I thought they looked cool and performed wonderfully, but now I would never wear them - even if I still played Little League. I also must say that the eye coverage was excellent and so was the craftsmanship. Now I realize some people still like this style, but I feel they just look too 80's in my opinion. I do however also understand the place this frame has in history as well as the significance of it in Oakley's history, which is why I still give it a rather high rating, however I didn't give it the full 5 skulls due to my not liking the style anymore.
TERRORISM -
Frame: Algae
Lens: Gold Iridium

Aptly named, Algae - a translucent dark green - compliments Gold Iridium almost too well. Adding rootbeer unobtainium and matching the frame with gold icons completes this pair as a classic. The Strike lens, however, somewhat negates the prestige. With an almost over-simplified design (rectangular shape/squared-off edges), the Strike closely resembles its predecessor, the Razor Blade lens.
ShadyOak -
Frame: Fingerprint
Lens: Black Iridium

These are still pretty cool IMO, even for a 20 year old frame. The 80's retro style is coming back in vogue too, so they are kinda cool to wear out every now and then for fun. Of course they are very functional as well with the unbeatable coverage and light weight of an M frame. I've experimented with puting a hybrid lens on these as well (I bought them as bare frames) and found the curve of the lens not as fitting to the style as the strike. The strike also seemed to fit my face better in this particular frame. The only complaints I have is that the temples are a bit tight on me. That's probably due to the fact that they are so short which is the other half of that complaint. I now understand completely why they changed from the hammer stems to hammer fangs. Overall a cool retro piece of Oakley history and nice for display as well as the occasional use.

Having an oddly built head - Sweeps look too small, Heaters and Strikes look cool but touch my cheeks - I figured the Strikes to be the best compromise and they've worked great for me so far. They're so light and the vision is so clear you forget you're wearing them. They're perfect for when I play volleyball, football and other sports. That I got them for ridiculously cheap on ebay (with an array case) helps a lot. Only thing keeping it from a perfect rating is that it's not an Iridium lens, which have a much better contrast.Matt

Frame: M Frame Black (Strike)
Lens: Laser Toric

I can't rate this due to the fact that I got it to add to my collection. I'm not exactly sure what this is for but I think it reflects laser light. I don't look good in it so I rarely wear it but it looks pretty cool. Not very common because of it's impracticality but makes for a nice show piece.

Frame: Black
Lens: Ruby Clear

One of the most popular frames Oakley has to offer and probably one of their most useful as well. Since it holds a Polaric Ellipsoid lens, vision is crisp and clear no matter where you look. It's extremely lightweight yet at the same time surprisingly durable. While not exactly eyewear that can be worn to any function, it's mandatory equipment for any athlete or professional that requires excellent eye protection.

I'm giving a 3 rating for the Ruby Clear M Frame because I can't wear Strike lenses, preferring Sweeps instead. As well, the Ruby Clear lenses, while providing a great deal of orange/red reflection (which is what you want in Ruby Clear), provides even more prominent ghosting than usual. This makes it decisively distracting and detracts from the M Frame's purported usefulness. However, it is a good piece to have and wear every so often under cloudy conditions.

These are the only pair of sunglasses i have ever been able to wear comfortably for long periods of time. I often forget I am wearing these they are so comfortable and lightweight. The earstems really grip your head without squeezing too tight. Coverage is great, yet not quite as good as my heaters. My only gripe is the cost of polarized lenses and the limited selection in colors for polarized lenses. Overall, I dont see any sunglasses ever replacing these for me.

Frame: Root beer
Lens: Persimmon

These are excellent. I got these rather cheap at the Oakley Vault near me and used them today in the wood shop. I teach 2 Woods courses and a metals course, so these work out perfectly for my needs. The persimmon, while great indoors, is really not so good outdoors. Again, these are great! Fit's my Asian Face really well. Recommended!

Frame: M Frame
Lens: Strip

Cut in an almost straight line from the bottom of the nosepiece to the temple of the frame, the Strip lens showcases a "minimalist" design and provides only basic protection from UV rays or any other debris that nature has to offer. Even during its time of production this lens was rarely seen; today it is almost impossible to find. Due to the seeming absence of design inginuity and lack of facial coverage I rate these lenses very low; on the other hand, because they are extremely rare and exhibit the heritage of Oakley's interchangable eyewear I have to increase my consideration a bit.

Frame: crystal red
Lens: + red iridium & grey strip
well prior to picking up this strip lense the 67 was my favourite, but having got a strip in my pocession-this is not the case now.
as mentioned, minimal protection, but the severe angle/cut of the lense from the nosepiece to the arms looks awesome when wearing or on display.
never thought id own one due to its rarity and its impossible to replace if it got damaged-so for that reason it must be a 5 due to its part in oakley history of what used to be and how very few people have the priviledge of owning one now.
now have 2 of these adding a grey strip to the set

Frame: Crystal
Lens: Blue Iridium Sweep

I went with a Sweep to get the slimmer lens, and a style sharper then Razor Blade. Heater was just too big, as was Strike. Especially in a skeletal frame. The Hammer Ear stem was a nice touch, added some spring. I wish I had gone with he Hybrid in retrospect. I used it a lot in snow and for a while as a normal wear pair. Sturdy, easy to change lens and the ear sock options were pretty good. Pro Clear was great.

These were a natural evolution from the 1st Generation M Frame.
These were designed really for the sportsman.
The hammerstems were extended for a improved fit, and the logos on the hammertems were changed to the O icon.
Also,Lenses all now supported the stretch logo instead of being plain.
Interchangeable lenses for total flexiblity, HUGE range of funky retro colours ment these were a massive hit,and really put the big O on the map.

Frame: Crystal Blue
Lens: +Red Iridium

I hadn't seen or wore a Gen 1 Mumbos since I lost that last pair and when I got this pair, I realized just how much better the current M Frames are. They still fit fine but the earstems are very short so they don't feel quite as secure when I wear them. The plastic also feels a little more fragile, though I'm sure thats perception more than reality. Still, they get four stars for being such a great starting point for Oakley's signature set of shades.

Frame: Crystal Clear
Lens: Red Iridium

I had one of these only very shortly before giving it away. They came with another pair, so essentially free. The lack of fangs doesn't help keep them on and seems to make them front heavy. I'd prefer the second generation with the strengthened hinge and better wrap.

Frame: Black
Lens: Grey Sweep

A gift from a friend; he discovered them while packing to move and thought me a better curator than he. Easily my oldest dated frame. Very cool to see the structural design principles have remained the same in subsequent generations of M Frames, Radar, etc. The unobtanium still provides grip for the three point fit and while I have never worn them for practical use they have been great accessories for halloween and eighties parties and they garner the nostalgic "Hey, I used to have a pair of those..!" stories.

Frame: FMJ 5.56
Lens: Ice Iridium/Red Iridium/Yellow

The best choice for all kinds of sports. The silverish coating adds more class to the frame. Sweep is ideal for Asian faces because Asian faces have high cheek bones and sweep does not touch any of them. If you are an Asian with typical Asian face, do avoid strike or hybride. Ice/Red Iridium lens is excellent for bright days and yellow for cloudy days or nights.

Frame: Metallic Blue w/ Star (Vented)

These are so awesome. I really like the M frame because of its durability and it doesn't hurt to feel like Lance with these on. The colorway is awesome and the lens is really cool being vented and G30. Really helps with visibility and comfort.

I finally got an Iridium lens for my M Frame and they're just about perfect.

Perfect for running, tennis, or any other rigorous physical activity.

I really love this combo with the lens and frame color. The eye coverage is excellent. I use these for cycling. In the country where there are a lot of bugs present, your eyes will be well protected. Sometimes at the end of the ride you got to wipe the bugs off. Pretty gross.

Lens: Clear Vented

This is really nice to wear with little sunlight. I use these when the sun is almost set and it is still really hot. I rode a lot over in the North San Joaquin area and it stays in the 90's till about 9pm. So the vented were nice to keep some air coming through but enough protection so you don't get bugs in your eyes. Only problem with vented is if you wear contacts. Sometimes it would dry my eyes out.

Great for cycling and golfing - lightweight and comfortable. These are the benchmark when it comes to sports glasses and I love 'em.

Not a pair of sunglasses for casual occasions but that isn't the intended use anyway!!

Frame: Carbon Fiber and Red
Lens: Black Iridium

These are the most durable sunglasses I own, the frames even surviving a face plant in a bicycle race. I've probably worn them every day since the new M-frame came out. The hinges are getting a little loose, but all is well. They're a VAST improvement over the old style M-frame.

My only problem is that they touch my eyebrows and channel the sweat directly onto the lenses. It would be another big improvement if O designed a thinner frame but just as strong.

Frame: Polished White
Lens: Jade

Once again, Oakley continues to release an iconic piece in new colorways. Their latest rendition: the Polished White/Jade Iridium New M Frame. As always, the three point fit and Polaric Ellipsoid Lens Geometry need little or no introduction to those of us who have been fanatics over the years. But the introduction of Jade Iridium provides a fresh perspective on a more than double-decade product.

Excellent execution, perfect fit, and beautifully functional Jade Iridium (as opposed to its limited-use G26 counterpart)... What more could you ask?

nice, very similar to the sweep but not quite as deep down the face and with no gap between the frame and the top of the lense.

Frame: Polished White

I custom ordered this pair because I really wanted the jade lens. The styling lines look good on the frame. The earstems are shorter than the m frame and the nose piece feels like different material. I prefer the original m frame nose piece. Although there is only one lens style they look good.

Awesome sticker, bought 2 of these in 2009 at the Oakley Vault on Santana Row, in San Jose... Went back there this year after doing some research and having time to realise how cool they were, and tried to buy more, but they had sold out... None of the other Oakley stores we visited, all over California, even had a clue what I was talking about... They hadn't even heard of the 'Mad Scientist' :)

I nabbed one at the O-Vault in California (San Jose) years ago. I still can't figure out where I want to put it. Very cool styling and has the old Oakley feel to it, like the scotty cannon stickers.

Dark Carbon/Ruby Polarized

I treated myself to a pair of these after trying on the BIP version. They're mad, but in a good way. My local dealer ordered them in, I happened to go in on a bank holiday weekend and they were having a 20% off on any sunglasses bought or ordered today thing. Result! These are actually surprisingly practical (like anyone cares!) as sunglasses, the smallish lenses sit quite close and (on me at least) there's decent coverage. The polarized Ruby lenses aren't quite as blue tinted as my older plain Ruby ones.

The styling... won't suit everyone, and it may take some nerve to wear them out in public. These are not display only glasses for me, I've worn them a number of times and had some interesting looks and comments. They're weird, but if you don't mind feeling a bit like Dr. Nefario they're great! Not the most comfortable pair I own, but they're pretty light and unobtrusive as long as I position then so that the top bar doesn't touch my forehead. The nosepiece feels a bit odd to start with, but I soon forgot about it. They seem to stay put pretty well, although I haven't tried doing anything particularly energetic with them on, just walking around town normally. Some Oakley designs sit so close that my eyelashes brush the inside of the lens (which I hate) but these are fine in that respect, surprisingly.

I'm giving serious consideration to ordering a custom pair via the prescription side, with a set of custom plano Emerald Polarized lenses...

If this is the first of a new line of X Metals, bring them on - we need more weird!

Frame: X-Raw
Lens: Fire Iridium Polarized

When I first heard that the X-Metal line was coming back, my initial reaction was excitement. When I heard there would be a limited edition release of one of the two frames I got even more excited.

The initial reaction when first seeing the Madman was shock. One of the first things I noticed, was that the arms extended way past the lenses. After trying on a pair of Dark carbon, daily prizm polarized, I realized that they did not look very good on me, so I was a little disappointed. I still went ahead with the purchase of the X-Raw limited edition as these would still make a great addition to any collection.

Didn't think I'd actually be able to get one, but was able to get my hands on one with much thanks to the people at my local O store. The overall packaging in the metal cylinder is over the top, and with only 150 in circulation, these are very cool.

The Madman is a new chapter in the X-Metal line. Immediately I felt that the style was a throwback to the Mars and Sub Zeros of the past. Many people compare these to the originals and are disappointed. The frames are aluminum paired with O-matter. I feel like there is still hope for the X-Metal line though. While they may never be what the originals were, I think that these are the beginning of the new chapter, and improvements are sure to come. I can't wait to see what the future holds.

Weight 33 gm. For me, the pinnacle of the Oakley production line has to be the X-metals. These are beautifully made sunglasses which feel solid, look simply crazy and are a must have for any serious collector! No matter what anyone says, there are very few faces that don't look strange with a pair of these on. It's unbelievable, but these sunglasses were banned in Australia (ie. you could not purchase them from a retail shop) because allegedly, they didn't provide enough eye protection due to the shape. This is absolutely true if you try wearing these sunglasses. The other strange thing about these sunglasses are that when they are folded up, the arms stick out from the sides of the sunglasses by about 3.5-4 cm!! If you need a hard case, they need either the original case that shipped with them, or an X-metal case. Otherwise, you run the risk of damaging the arms. As alluded to previously, they are a reinvention visually of the moons, mars, and tailend lines. Buy these if you're a serious collector, or just want to look weird!

Raw / Plasma, Fire Iridium Polarized

When I first saw the photos of the Madman prior to their release, my first comment was “those look weird” and I was not sure whether I liked them or not. The more I looked at them the more I liked them and knew I really wanted a Raw with the Aluminum Cylinder Case. I was very fortunate to be able to obtain a Raw, and loved everything about them from the first time I tried them on. The look, the feel, and the comfort are perfect. I also obtained a Plasma Fire which I have been wearing not stop for 6 weeks now, and the compliments I have received on these frames have been incredible. I simply love these frames!

Frame: Dark Carbide
Lens: Black Iridium

I bought these plainly because they were on special at the time and i wanted another colour to the Ice switch i have. I thought being a new glass i wouldn't have problems with the paintwork like my Ti frame, but I was wrong. The ceramic coating seems extremely thin at the edges, paint below the hinge has no been coated fully, to the extent that i have to take extreme care when cleaning the glass so that the edges stayed in good nik.

I spotted at least four areas now where paint is starting to fall away, and with a dark frame it's extremely noticable! My FMJ minutes have lasted longer and I've had them for years. Haven't taken these to Oakley because i bought these underprice so the store didn't give me a warranty. Only bought these because of the price and suited me ok style wise.

I found a pair of these for a great price on eBay, so I had to get them since they are now discontinued. They are almost a little too wide for my face, but they were such a good deal that I couldn't pass them up. Also, unlike my Mag Four S, these have MAGNESIUM etched on the left lens. The Four S fits much better, but there's just something cool about having that etching on the lens.

As with all Mag frames, these are super light and very stiff. The spring hinges feel great. Dark Carbide is a nice, plain, matte finish for those times when you want to stay low-key.

From a performance stand point, I would not recommend these due to every thing that make these so aesthetically pleasing. I have not had a problem with the paint peeling yet, but then again I have only had them for less than a week

This is a pair of glasses to add to a collection and to throw on a shelf. Not for everyone to wear, but It's worth it just to stare at the glasse and the great all around design of this pair even down to the little metal orbital lugs (or whatever you would call them: the round metal cylandrical things that hold the lens orbital together with the oakley logo inside the frm.

Designed for smaller heads, they're kinda plain looking other than the color scheme. Not quite as funcional as other Oakleys since the base curve is so flat.

I was able to get these NOS off of the net last week at a great price. So i will try to review as if i had paid full retail for them.

The Frames are very light weight and have a great feel to them. They seem to have a great flex on the hinges and would accommodate anyone with a slightly larger head. The FOUR series frames are very simple and seem to have little offerings to set them apart from other glasses of similar styles other than the brandishing of the "O" on the side are. Which in my opinion is more than enough to compensate for the slight blind spot they create.
The Fire Iridium Lenses are amazing... beautiful color and supreme clarity.
Bottom Line... I won't be wearing them very often just because they do not fit my face very well but a great light weight frame for anyone who can pull it off.

ShadyOak -
Frame: Plasma
Lens: Fire Iridium

I like these more than I thought I would when I ordered them. The colors are great and the design is simple. For such a simple design these get a lot of attention, maybe it's the colors. Either way they look pretty good on me, and fit my head well. The spring hinges feel nice (after I snugged up the screws a bit) and make for a comfortable fit on my med/largish size melon. Despite the frames bulk they are very light, and sturdy feeling.

The verdict for me on these is, a good addition to the collection, but I won't wear them often. Nice to look at on display though.

Very lightweight and spring hinges are quite comfortable. The matte ceramic finish on the Mag frames is nice to look at. The Denim color is a unique shade of blue... it is the reason I bought these.

Very nice glasses, doesnt have the bulk of the mag Switch, but still has the sturdy Magnesium Frame.

I really didnt like this colour combo in the S version.
they looked alot smaller than the normal Mag Four. I could easily tell this size difference whereas in the darker colours it is difficult to notice the size difference between the Mag four and the Mag four S. It must be the pale frame colour teamed with the bright Fire lens that makes them look so much smaller.

I love the Mag material. Cool to the touch and a unique texture about it. A basic style of eyewear (same as Four S, just with Mag frame material). Not a wrap-around at all, so light can slip in on the sides. But the look is sharp, and it's a Mag frame, so it's a winner in my book. Spring hinges, comfortable and lightweight are all a plus!

Frame looks thick especially with this small of a frame but of course, being Magnesium, they are super light. Actually, now that I think about it, these are not a really usable frame.

Although the color combo appeals to the eye, very little can justify the design elements of these shades. While those with smaller faces may find the limited-sized orbitals appealing, these glasses also lack "wrap", which ultimately fails to protect the wearer from perephrial bombardment. If you're searching for a pair of magnesium shades, you'll probably be better off with the Switch or Mag M Frames.

I rarely give a bad review but if one is needed Ill be more than happy to do it.

As one of the few avowed M-Frame fans here I found these a little disappointing. Granted, it was just at the store and I wasn't able to run around and use them they way they're meant to be used but still. They're heavier and changing the lenses is cumbersome if you're used to the pop-out-snap-in simplicity of the plastic M-Frames. At lesat for me, they didn't fit as well either. I will say this; the Denim/Black and Plasma/Fire color combos look great.

They are awsome - I had a plastic M-Frame, and that was average, with the arms continually popping out (and I have a small head). No such problems with these. They feel much more solid (the metal perhaps ;) ), and they are comfy to wear all day. I have been very happy with them.

I have them for a few years already, they just look awesome! Even after years, it still attracts loads of attention. For my face, it fits extremely well. Maybe not for some. It is rather expensive for what it is to be honest, it's a shame that they don't make it anymore. Why do they stop producing the magnesium line. Probably the cheap plastic O-matter are more profitable?

Frame: Plasma
Lens: Fire Hybrid S

Really nifty pair of shades. I eBayed my regular M Frames to partially fund this pair, and it was well worth it. Regular M Frames have a plastic frame which was renowned for snapping, this frame is obviously magnesium but even so just looks much better, thinner and more stylish. It's also very lightweight for a metal frame, a bonus if you do sports. The lens is screwed in so if you fall the lens won't come out, as with regular M Frames. The only downside I might point out is that the range of lens colors isn't quite as wide as with the regular M Frames (and the two aren't compatible), but all in all well worth it over the original M Frames.

These are tiny. They dont provide much coverage from the sun.
They are also heavy which is the last thing you want if you are wearing them for sport.
Bad idea to make these glasses out of magnesium which makes them unflexible.
If you want an M-Frame I suggest you go with one of the O matter Frames.
The Denim frame is a great colour though

As much as I love this combo, it has cracked on me TWICE already. I do not know the reason but it appears the cracks are due to stress put on it at the joint.

These sit a little bit closer to your face than their plastic counterparts so they give you a little bit better coverage. The earstems dont squeeze and "grip" your head like plastic frames, but they reach around your head enough that they are still very secure. very comfortable, not much heavier than plastic, and the look sharp, too!

I still question why these were first named Mag Ti Copper for being a grey frame? Magnesium makes for a lite frame, but the Porcelain rubs off where the fangs scrape the inner orbital frame when closed. Spring hinges were a plus for fit. The arms were rounded more so and stiff. A comfortable fit due to it's weight but you still knew it was there.

It feels weird wearing it the first couple of weeks...
I mean... it feels like ceramic... It's thick yet light weight. I've no idea how durable the frame is, since I've never dropped it or deliberately bashed it with a hammer.
Initially I got an older version which the ear stem/fangs would scrape off the paintwork when folded... as said by kingphilbert.
I brought it back to the shop and they changed me a brand new pair with added rubber thing in the hinge... fixed the prob. Fantastic.
Spring hinge is cool... but I don't know how the flex coupler works for this model.

The only problem now is the paintwork. I don't know if I sweat acid or something... I get dark grey dots and patches in the inner part of the frame (very obvious when it's Pearl frame). Not a pretty sight.

I walked into the Miami O-Store wearing these and the guy behind the counter looked shocked. Seems that the plasma/white ceramic wasn't very popular. Since they've been discontinued, they've become even more rare. But I've got a thing for white frames. These are great glasses for hanging out. For me, a little heavy (read: expensive) for playing sports, but that's me. Mine have stretched out a little in the middle, giving them a weird look from the front. $20 + shipping to Oakley will have them wrapping around my face properly. From what I hear, this is standard stuff for frames with the flex coupler. Other than that, the spring hinges are solid, plus they feel great when you wear them in the sun; the ceramic tends to stay cool after sitting indoors for a while. Maybe I'll try to procure some Ice Polarized lenses for these...

This is my 3rd pair (after warranty claims) and the paint work is still not getting any better.
Now I can see spots of the base magnesium colour.
The end of my right inner side of the ear stem is almost gray.
I told a O-rep bout the prob... he said that's what's happening to the body of airplanes... as it's using the same material for Magnesium frames.

But it's cool though.
Especially when u seldom see Mag frames over here in my country... even if u do, they're not as badass as Pearl Fire.
Hehe.

Great design and was lighter than they looked before I bought these however wasn't impressed with the durability, edges have started to lose paint considerably at the ends of the earstems and sweat seems to slightly stain the frame over time.

I've had these for a year, but will probably opt for X-Metal as my next pair. Not very impressed with the magnesium frame but gets a 4 for the design.

I didnt like these at all, they are big, heavy and bulky.
I suggest you go with either the Mag Four or Mag Four S if you want the cool magnesium frame but without the Weight and Bulkyness of the mag Switch.

Frame: Ti
Lens: Ice
The Mag Switch's feel a little odd at first. They are very light given that they are made of metal and are much thicker than the X-Metals. The thickness can also be felt as you put them on, the armbands are rounder than most plastics. That aside, they are very nice. I wear the Ice model from time to time, and you can't beat that lens. The frame tends to get in your peripheral vision at times, but isn't too bad.

Update: I wore these while I mowed the lawn one day and the sweat has started to corrode the frame. The ceramic is crumbling making a mess of everything. I have to move these from a 5 to a 3 now.

Finally got to try one these puppies on and I was underwhelmed. The lenses looked small initially but everything fit fine once I tried them on. Fairly lightweight considering the relatively thick frame and the Unobtanium on the earstems look like they'd keep them on your head even while running. They fit a little close to my face but with bigger nosebombs, they'd be better. Still, they seem like an almost obselete niche product considering how popular the X-metals are.

The durability coupled with the lightweight characteristics of these frames ensures the Magnesium Switch a place of prominence in the Oakley Hall of Fame. The black Iridium offers excellent protection from bright-light conditions, while the spring hinges further enhance the frames and allow a comfortable fit. The only drawback to possibly note is that the spring hinges appear to have plastic inserts rather than a more durable material, such as aluminum.

I got these sunglasses because they seemed like a cool alternative to the X-Metal line. To me they have hints of X-Metal styling without looking like a direct descendant of the family.

I actually rate these a 4.2, but since I cant really do that, I rounded down. The Mag Switch has a very cool looking Frame, kind of like a fat Juliet. Pear/Fire is IMO the best frame/lens Combo for the Switch, but that is because I am bias in Fire Iridium's favor. The frame is very lite despite the thickness of the arms and orbital, and the two black circles on the nose piece that hold the flex couplers in place really stand out and add to the beauty of the whole ensemble. However, despite the Switch’s beauty, it does have a couple of flaws. First, the frame does discolor due to corrosion from sweat, and second, I cannot seem to find away to change the lenses. So overall, the Switch is a very cool looking pair of Oakleys, defiantly a compliment to anyone’s collection.

I'm a big fan of the Mag frames. I think the material, texture, and feel are very cool. The fit and weight of the Switch are sweet, and the spring hinges are a big plus. I like the frame styling/molding around the lenses. My only complaint seems to be a familiar one: after some time the Mag appears to have some residue/corrosion problems. I had the same problem with my 24k XX X-Metal and Oakley took good care of the issue, so I'm not too concerned.

AWESOME sunglasses from a design point of view,but there have been a lot of complaints about durability, so have really been pushed aside as a fashion item.
I have these just to collect, so have only worn them to try on.
Still an excellent fit,although the weight just makes them feel well built in my opinion.
Excellent vision, although these are not interchangable lenses, as they are bonded to the frame.
These will be a collector classic.

Frame: Titanium

I'm still amazed at the weight of these things. Everytime I pick them up, I still think they should be at least a little heavier. Even though the frame is called Titanium, I feel it looks more like X-Metal when compared. They have a unique look to them, and one that I'm afraid I can't pull off completely. I find there's too much frame below the earstems as opposed to being evenly distributed about the frame(not sure if this makes any sense to any one). I'm still going to wear them, but I got them more for the historical fact.

The only Oakleys that have followed me all over the place when on hollidays. It's comfortable to wear, both on my nose and on top of my head. The colorway is flashy in a way, but if you don't mind getting the attention ("where did you get those killer shades, dude!?!") it's a great combo.
It is difficult to keep the pearlwhite color, as it easily smudges. The fire lens is one of the most comfortable Oakley ever made.

I was underwhelmed by the other color options, but this one "popped" off the shelf when I first saw it. I am a huge fan of the fire lenses and they just look awesome contrasted against the bright white frame. Surprisingly, the Magnesium line never took off. These are a striking pair of sunnies. They are a definite collector's item in my mind, especially since they are plagued with longevity issues. I had the frame replaced recently due to the infamous yellowish discoloration. If it wasn't for this, I'd give them full marks.

Finally have a pair of my own, since the Ice were my brother's. I have a Gen2, so the stems don't rub on the orbitals. The coating seems more solid too. Overall, a very nice pair, but one I'm afraid to wear due to the spotty (literally) history.

i first ran across these while i researched oakley pennies... i was conflicted between these ( beacause they were cheaper) and penny ruby (but they were too pricey). i really wanted penny ruby, but didnt feel like forking out the $400.00 pricetag... so i decided to pay a litle than half the price for the mag switches
wow. these are some of the most stunningly awesome-looking specs ive ever seen...the photos on the auction page didnt do them justice... i also own a pair of square wire 2.0s and i never wear them anymore after getting these. AND theyre discontinued and are becoming even more rare? i just had to pick these up. i just got them sunday and i couldnt be more pleased. i havent had them for too long, so i hope the ceramic doesnt wear off like everyone says it does. for me, the first time i put them on they felt just fine. they werent too thick like everyone says they are, and they dont get in my peripherel vision like some people say. the three-point fit and the spring hinges are a plus as well- so very little of the actual frame makes contact with my face. im pretty sure i got a gen2 as the fangs dont rub on the frame and there appears to be a ruber piece in place of the hinge. overall, a solid pair of shades in my point of view.

I just got a pair recently of eBay and they had the same problems of discoloration and flaking off especailly where the earstem hits the orbital. I sent them in to Oakley and just got them back. They look a lot better, although the color is a little uneven. In spite of all this I really dig these. They're suprisingly light, really comfortable, and just as important, they look cool. I will wear them sparingly though, to avoid more problems, so unless that happens, I'll give them a 4.

I'm giving these a 3. I've never owned any of Oakley's magnesium frames and I would probably keep them around to stay on display as much as I would a Medusa. I've heard many horror stories about the ceramic disintegrating to pieces by many wearers.

These would have gotten many high points with me if 1) They were not spring hinged, 2) The corrosion/breaking problem were not an issue, 3) The temples were designed a little more tightly such that they didn't always hit the lens orbital bottoms. I know this is a problem with the Juliet and some Romeos as well, but at least with those you didn't feel that they might "leak out" on you or something.

The Mags are great and are VERY OAKLEY. It's the spirit of Oakley. Where most companies make their glasses out of steel or plastic, how many people out there can boast,"These things are made of magnesium. Cool, eh?"

Extremely well crafted but you just get the impression that the magnesium works better as a gimmick than a frame material, I find very little difference between wearing a switch and one of my x-metals, that said the spring hinge ensures it remains very comfortable, its just a shame that it suffers from paintwork problems and the inability to switch out lenses

Lens: Black Irid

On the whole, these are very comfortable to wear. I would like to see a little bit more tension in the arms however. The main problem I've had with these is the black finish rubbing off. The nosepiece area and inside of the arms (where the top of the arm hits the other when folded) have noticeable wear now.

Aside from that small cosmetic problem, they fit very well, stay in place relatively well, look properly "Oakley" and are much lighter than the rest of the metal-framed models.

A really cool shade definitely. The flex coupler is pretty cool in my opinion. All my friends say they look like a thick Juliet, I think it's a good comparison however these are definately no Juliets.

While reviewing the wiretap,I said that if I were about to pick just two models from the whole oakley range,the one would be the aforementioned.Well,the other one would equally positively be the mag switch.The distinguished design,along with the equally unique-in the chronichles of oakley- application of magnesium within a ceramic mantle,for the purposes of a pair of sunglasses,is enough to make them stand out of any given oakley collection.Some might ask:would you choose them over x metal xx(which I really adore)?Well,yes,I would!
It doesn't have to do only with the magnesium.After all the frame is rigid,up to the point that I feel it uncomfortable(I got used to it after a few hour though),when wearing it for the first time,which made me appreciate the o-matter range,that so adopts to the shape of my face,and tends to be so flexible.But the charm of mag switch is a totally different thing:The perfect grip.it grips to the face as if it was your skin itself!!!No wonder why oakley described them as a pair that was addressed to athletes.Only my straight jackets can be compared to them in terms of grip.Even the valves that had the perfect contact with my face now seem loose.
The design:nothing else looks alike them.Even the earstem unobtainium pieces are unique,with these golf ball alike holes in them,which make the frame more extreme and aggresive.The picture is completed with all the round and rectangular elements fusion of the orbitals.Even the nosebridge part is more aggresive of its x metal counterpart.
For the convenience of the wearer,the hinges do a really good work(I told you,the fit is amazing),however,the frame is not as flexible as I would expect in the bridge.The ti copper color contributes a lot in the overall appearance of the frame,but I have to admit that the pearl/fire combo is exactly what expresses what the mag switch is all about better.The only complaint that i have is the ice lenses,which I don't like in general,but they fit to the frame color anyway.
I know what you will say.That because of the ceramic falling to pieces,they are doomed to stay in the display.NO!!!I intend to wear them as much I can,and to also give them as much wear and tear as I can as well.They were designed to be worn in activities,sports,hobbies,and everyday life,and that is exactly what I intend to do.Only when they will serve me well,moreover,when they will not be able to serve me any more they will be dismissed.I have said it before,and I will say it again.They were released during the golden era of oakley(late 90's-early 00's),and me ,having them,is like a dream come true.I will not quit from wearing them now that I have them.I just wish that oakley will surprise us again with new breakthroughs like this!!!

Very Juliet/Romeo like, but less flexible. These get astonishingly cold to the touch, like a splash of cold water; must be the magnesium. I would like to have seen these with Ruby Iridium, the Fire although nice just don't have the same pizazz. They don't give the same lower eye coverage as my Juliets or Straight Jackets, nor do I find them as comfortable, but they do look cool so they do a lot of sittin pretty in my display.

So I got the glasses and was instantly amazed they were metal, at first I didn't know for sure if it was plastic or not. Later on, curious, I scoured the internet to find the model I had, and was amazed to find I had gotten $230 glasses for $40 and that isn't even including the Square Wire 2's!!!

Anyway, I love these glasses and was lucky to get them for a deal!

1st of all...***I LOVE THESE SUNGLASSES*** !!

I have been in the Optical field for about 13 years and I have owned 100's upon 100's of sunglasses, many of them Oakley. Most of the retail stores I was employed with were Oakley Dealers. I purchased my Mag Switch almost immediately upon there release because of there extremely appealing look. BTW...even Oakley retailers were never given a discount either! I am an avid Golfer, Downhill Skier and avid outdoors men, I have worn my Mag Switch so much it would make you sick!! The self adjusting bridge and spring loaded hinges make this the most versatile fitting sunglasses I have seen. My point is, although many comments have been made about the ceramic coating, I feel compelled to comment that in the 7 years I have owned these glasses and the regular wear and use I have given these, aside from 2 very small scratches along the front of the eyewire, the ceramic coating looks as it did when I bought them.
Hands down the most comfortable and most intriguing looking pair of sunglasses I have ever owned next to my Medusa...lol!! The Oakley Mag Switch, in my opinion, warrants a TOP 5 placing in any Sunglass Hall of Fame.
**If you don't like your Mag Switch, let me know...I'll buy them in a heartbeat!
cacatman -
Weight - 37 gm. These are absolutely fantastic sunglasses. I have the Dark Carbide's with Black Iridium. I'm an Asian (ie. flat faced) and have a big head (59 cm circumference). These babies sit nicely and feel secure. Coverage isn't quite as good as some of the other Oakleys you may have, but certainly not as bad as the Mag 4s or the Madmans. They feel well balanced and "solid". The texture of the frame is simply sublime (I've always wanted to use "sublime" in a review). They have the sort of frame which makes you want to pick them up and touch them. Some grippy mobile phone cases have a similar feel. The feel is a sort of rubbery matte finish to them. They feel nice and solid and the shape appeals to me, especially the Oakley Valve like lower lens ridge that protrudes like a sports car's front lower spoiler. The black iridium lenses I have seem, quite dark compared to the other Oakleys I own. I also like them because they have the nose piece like the Juliets, but aren't as tight as a pair of Juliets. This is helped by mild spring in the arms, which help with the fit. The only thing I don't love about these sunglasses are the fact that the arms (when wide open) seem to leave a gap with the frame. It's hard to describe, but it almost seems that they don't quite fit properly together. Apart from that, probably one of my most favourite pairs of Oakleys! These can be had for about $250 USD on eBay. Well worth it, I have to say! :)
TERRORISM -
While still in production, Oakley successfully differentiated their Magnesium eyewear line with orange/yellow-colored packaging and specialized labeling. Similar to the X-Metal boxes, the Magnesium Switch box featured both an outer sleeve as well as pre-cut foam padding on the inside to protect your shades. A placard bearing the Icon and the phrase "Magnesium: Switch" replaced the X-Metal coin; likewise, the phrase "Warning: Magnesium" adorned the sides of the outer sleeve. Overall, the box complimented the ingenuity and distinctiveness of the eyewear it promoted.

Another elusive eBay piece of Oakley eyewear, I'm not 100% sure the Emerald Mars exists, but have seen it consistently on eBay enough to gather that it may be authentic.

Lens: Gold Iridium
I stared at the Oakley website for a long time. Two glasses stood out as being totally ridiculous, but still, I had to have them. They were the Overthetops and the Leather Mars. The $315 price tag seemed to keep me in line, but one day I saw them used online, and got them immediately. Yes, they did look silly, but I loved them. The lenses are awesome and very good for bright light into late evening. The hinge where the ear stems meet the frame tend to block your peripheral vision sometime and can be bothersome when driving, but aren't too bad. The leather looked cool, but if you want them to look nice for a long time, don't wear them in the rain. Actually don't wear them at all, since the leather is untreated and will turn an ugly shiny black instead of a fibery tan. Mine is beyond repair, so I continue to enjoy them. It's too bad the frames got so much wear, since the serial number is only #326. Very low considering most X-Metals are in the tens of thousands range.

Im now looking for some RUBY lenses so i can Customise them.

The Mars have always been one of my favorite creations by Oakley. I fell in love with them when they first came out and I spotted them in a glass case in a Sunglass Hut. I was just walking by, minding my own business, and I saw them. I told my girlfriend I had to stop and check them out. As soon as I put them on, I knew. The way they fit your face and sit so closely to your eyes. I thought they were perfect for me. Lightweight, yet extremely durable. The lenses are good for a wide range of lighting conditions. The leather wrapped frames are personally some of the most attractive frames I've laid eyes on too. The contrast stitching is also a very nice touch. I give these a 5 skull rating because of their overall beauty and functionality. The small peripheral compromisation is just not enough to throw me off of these. Ya know when you see a chick from far away and she's soo hot and then ya get close up on her and your like oh nooo. Well these shades are awesome from a distance and only get more so the closer you get. 5 skulls fo sho! ;-)

Frame:X-metal/Leather wrap
Lens: Gold Iridium

Designed by Michael Jordan. Worn for a second or two by Brad Pitt in Fight Club.

Totally Oakley. Unique pair of sunglasses. They are the ugliest pair of sunglasses I have ever seen, and yet I bought a pair. They actually are pretty cool when you wear them, but in a "crazy, alternative" way. So in an "Oakley" way!

Everyone I have shown these to have said they are extremely ugly and that I should never wear them out in public. These are the same people who also think its stupid to have more than one pair of sunglasses, so water off a ducks back and all that.

Definitley not my favourite or most worn pair, but a great part of the collection.

These are the most understated of all the X-Metals, since the styling is not everybodys taste.
The first Oakleys to offer a sprung nosepiece section, that makes it a big improvement over the Romeo for comfort.
The Emerald and the Ruby were limited, so are quite hard to come by now.

My first black iridium Oakley glasses. They certainly look different from juliets or any other xmetals, but the Mars are just like any X-metal should be. sturdy built, fits tightly, and high quality finish. the X-metal frame flavor are quite something. it's raw and very industrial looking colour. in conclusion, imho, the mars are intended for men only. the design's quite hardcore, although it's also classic with the rounded shaped lenses. my friends said the lenses look like john lennon's glasses. luckily they suits my head well.., great buy!

Frame: Leather/X-Metal

IMO these are the most beautiful sunglasses Oakley has ever released. The problem is that they dont look good on most people. The Mars are built to last, like the rest of the X-Metal line. These can be had for less than $100, and are by far the best sunglasses available in the <$100 pricerange. The leather on the leather version will discolor in time due to sweat/sunlight, and can be removed to make them just like the Crater version.

These have always intrigued me. When they first came out in 1998, and Michael Jordan was sporting them in a brown fedora, I knew I had to get a pair. I think these are the kinda of glasses you wear with a shaved head. What really sparked my interest in them was their brief appearance in Fight Club. I don’t wear them too much, but they have a special place in my collection. Can anyone tell me about the x metal black leather/Black Iridium model? I have never seen them before.
TERRORISM -
Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Ruby

The Mars are aptly named, as their lens configuration is just as round as the planet. Of course, the frames are virtually indestructible since they are rendered from Oakley's proprietary titanium alloy, X-Metal. Interchangeable nosebombs and temple shocks enhance the glasses with a customized fit, as well as flex couplers. My main concern with these glasses is the lens shape. Aside from the fact that I look like C-3PO while wearing them, they simply don't seem to provide adequate coverage. While the X-Metal and Ruby colors themselves look great in this particular configuration, in my opinion it all boils down to an uninspired lens design: a circle.

wow ! these x metals are really beautiful , a bit on the small size ( for my head at least ) but overall look and design is A+

Was able to get these cheap, so I did, and I like them. They're fairly bland (just the Leather model sans leather), but I plan to do some mods to it to spruce it up. I'm thinking Denim would look nice. Now if only I could get Ice in them.

Edit: Added Ruby to these and they Shine! Put the Black lenses in my old Leather and sharpie'd the leather black for a truely unique pair.

One of the most intriguing frames Oakley has crafted to date. I can't say much for the head on view of what I look like wearing them but they are worth having to own such a fine piece of art. X-Metal continues to be a great frame alloy and the leather accents add just the right amount of flare. Gold Iridium is a plus too. I do hope we see more oddities like this from O here and there in the future.

An unusual look as said below. But really, I've noticed that the styling in the X-metal material comes off as much more refined (especially compared to the Moon). The leather wrap really brings it all together for me, and I actually get a lot of compliments on the look. Great fit. Lovely orbital lenses. ;) I can imagine the leather doesn't weather well (thus the reason why the Racing Jackets get all the sweaty sporting activities).

Finally got a pair of these, while not in the best of condition, they still wear fine. The X-Metal/Ruby combo is a very striking look, which won't let you hide in a crowd. It really is a beautiful pair of glasses, and I recommend snagging one if you have the chance since they're on their way out.

Only the Leather one will be recomended. It sure does not look good on me. but I will keep it for now not unless you have the Crater in RUBY or Emerald. The lens of the Mars is what got me. It actually gives you a different hue compared to Juliets and Penny. The color seems more deep. Other than that, the holes in the crater is amazingly evenly drilled out. What really makes this glasses good is it's ridiculously ugly

My first X-metal and Black Iridium oakley. The design of the lens is unique, although it's not gonna appeal to all people. The color and design of the frame gives it a rugged look. I have a hard time putting these glasses on, to small for my head, but it's still cool. Great oakleys overall.

Best glasses I have up to now, the design is pretty overthetop for some people but I find them quite classy. They're very stiff, as opposed to my pennies and I like the them a lot more because they don't have spring hinges.

I was worried about the fit since I ordered them on ebay whitout ever trying them on before but, if you're the kind of guy that only the penny fits you in the x metal line, these will too. Hell, I have a very small face, and even with 15 shock absorbers they're extra tight.

Great pair of sunglass overall, if you like the style.

This is my first Oakley glasses (Crater - bought in 98). Much like a futuristic John Lennon glasses, this is not for everyone. The design is an eye catcher, especially the Ruby ones. I usually see people staring at me whenever I wear this model. Fit is OK and as with all X-metals, this was built tough. Do you have the guts to wear it?

Frame: X Metal
Lens: Black Iridium

Man, these are killer. If it came with larger nosebombs and a more diverse lens range, I'd wear 'em out all the time, but it doesn't so it just sits there along with the rest of my X Metals. I'd say that this pair is the most intimidating of the lot though.

Coverage is great, but you will lose some of your peripheral vision due to the design of the orbitals; you'll be staring at solid X Metal instead of clear Plutonite.

I did wear them for a while despite them resting on my cheeks (Asian Face Syndrome). They're comfortable, but my eyebrows got pinched a few times. A design flaw? Heheh.

If you can stomach the look and don't mind the odd gawk or two, get 'em!

I absolutely love these glasses. When I started working at the O Store and found out we had these in back, I had to have a pair. I never liked them originally, but seeing black on black in Blade 2 converted me. I love the style, combining the strength of X-Metal, with the individuality of the circular lense. Not to knock on the Juliet lovers, but everyones got them, why not try something different. The Ruby lense was definitely a must have. Another great fit for my shaved head. If you have a large and/or shaved head, Mars is the way to go. There is a downside of less peripheral coverage and a small blindspot, but nothing too severe.

The Mars is definitely one of Oakleys signature models. If you've always thought they'd look too strange and wouldn't fit your face, I suggest you give em a try first. I was pleasantly surprized myself and now they get frquent wear. There'll always be the stares and some people will tell you they look ridiculous, but that's alright. As for wearability they're(again) surprisingly comfortable and the round lenses offer an interesting perspective with good coverage. The Crater frame is a subtle variant that adds a little more character and the black Iridium lenses are brilliant in bright light, if a little boring to look at.

Man, I have to eat my words. I really do like these now. They do look funky but that is what Oakley is about. I'll give the Mars crater and extra star from my last review b/c I'm really starting to like them a lot. The eye coverage is ok. You can see the side of the frame in your peripheral vision which kind of sucks. But other than that they are pretty cool.

Ruby would be the archetypal lens for the namesake, and they do lend a flattering appearance to this eccentric (no pun intended) creation. I could see them shutting down another purification session. For those with the means and interest to experiment, Mars won't let you down. Making the orbitals appear like plasma gives an atmospheric glow.

A great, great pair of sunglasses. I've always wanted a pair and I finally acquired a pair a little while back. The Mars has a clean design, with simple lines, round lenses and patented Oakley characteristics, making this an instant classic. The holes on the Mars Crater just adds to the "cool."

My second pair of Oakleys and the pair that I have worn the most now. It's extremely eye catching with comments about me looking like a bug, and I have received many glances from ppl. My future brother in law wants a pair just like mine, but thankfully this is discontinued, so I won't have some doofus copying me.

Overall the lenses are cool. Outside people see RED, but you see things with a light blue hue to near transparancy. The only thing you have to be careful of is the littel pice of metal that holds the lens in. It can pop out and I had to ship it in for a repair job and requested extra pieces so I could lock it in place by myself instead of some techie.

Frame: X-Metal/Leather
Lens: Gold Iridium
You have to admire a design staff that felt it necessary to pair leather with X-Metal. Who comes up with an idea like that? For that alone, these are worth owning. If you want a pair of glasses that make you look good - keep looking. I have never heard someone say to me "You look awesome in those". Instead, prepare yourself for comments such as "What are those?", "Why did you buy those"? But, that's the appeal for me with the Mars. They grab attention and make people comment. True art in an X-Metal sculpture. Price really dipped on these a while ago, but now the price seems to be on the way up so act fast or you may have to part with a small fortune to own one.
Rick -
Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Emerald
I was told these were hard to find, but I lucked out. I paid quite a bit for them, but the Emerald lens is so hard to find now that I just thought I'd bite the bullet. The thing with the Mars is they all come with the same serial number prefix. No matter if you have the Leather/Gold, X-Metal/Ruby, or any Mars the number starts with a M. This makes it possible to build a pair that could pass as an official release. This is not a huge deal but something to be aware of if you are looking for an actual original version/release. The rare-factor makes these an important pair so don't expect to see many available for purchase.

One of my "Holy Grail" finds! Before I actually owned these I don't think I had an appreciation for just how unique they are. I am very fortunate to have these at all. I will say that they are not easy to pull off. I am used to that, if you look at my collection you will see I have many very unique colorways, so I know that you can't just slap these on and expect them to look good. I have to say that I would have given these a 3 or 4 if I didn't own them, but now that I've seen the construction and had a chance to actually wear them I give them a 5 purely for the uniqueness.

*disclaimer: as has been said you really cannot wear these every day, sweat will totally discolor the leather. I took the precaution of spraying Leather treatment spray that is supposed to gaurd against moisture dirt and oils, but probably only works so well. The spray in no way discolored the leather.

Truly an iconic pair of sunglasses. They look very weird, with the round lenses and the hinges sticking out. Not to mention the leather wrap around the nosebridge and the temples. These are only for special days when there is no possibility of harm for these babies. The comfort of the Mars is pretty good. When you first see them, you would think that they could, in no way, be comfortable, but the reality is that they are very good!

By FAR the coolest sunglasses I have ever owned. Wear them everyday, & even after 10 years in the market, they still look futuristic. You can't beat the durability of Titanium.

This pair gets 10 SKULLS on look
Very cool looking glasses. Great for any collection if you like the style. And of course since they are leather wrapped, if you are interested in keeping the leather looking new and in great shape..they are fragile and wear/tear should be minimalized if not avoided.
As far as practical use, for me this gets 2 skulls at best.

Frame: X Metal
Lens: Black Iridium

These are my first X metals and I love'em. They are very unique yet recognizable, I've been surprised at how many people know what they are when I wear them. The funny looks people give me combined with lots of compliments make for a fun wearing experience. I was a bit surprised but these look pretty darn good on me (no I'm not bald). These are not for the timid, they do not go unnoticed. I like sharing my enthusiasm for oakley and the mars gets people talking about it even if it's not their style (does that make me an O-vangelist?).

Now for the technical. The temples are a bit tight on my head, I need some smaller temple shocks to help that. Other than that they fit me good. The coverage is better than I expected, but peripheral vision is definately compromised. Not the best for driving, but good enough for most occasions. The lenses are great of course, for bright days anyway. The only downer is that if I want to swap in a different color I have to mess with the little clips rather than just unscrew them.

Overall I like these for the attention factor the most, which they deliver in spades.

Edit: Got some #15 temple shox, they fit great now :^)

The textured metal frame, the exposed construction details, the not-actually-circular lenses - other people *will* stare at you.

I will admit i was always a juliet guy. Getting whole of a low serial x series ruby juliet was always my obsession and i kinda scoffed at the marses for a long time. Then one day i found an emerald pair on ebay missing the nosebombs for cheap and thought what the he'll? So i bought them. They sat in my display case on the x metal shelf without nose bombs for the longest time and i never wore them. Then i ended up getting a set of the nose pieces and started wearing them. These are now my all time favorite oakley frames. They absolutely represent that weird cutting edge and over the top styling that oakleys of the present lack. They're comfortable to wear and always draw attention and compliments. My new goal is to collect all the marses. Wish me luck!

these are classic oakley. crazy, out there design. The Mars fit alot tighter than the penny or juliet, and the nosebridge does not flex as much. The bottom of the frame touches my cheeks, but its not a problem. The crater looks more complete than the regular mars - the holes add detail to a fairly plain frame. All-in a unique pair that still has great coverage and can be worn as a daily like many have! -1 for those c-clips which break easily instead of torx screws, and frame touching cheeks.

Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Black Iridium

This is one of the most extreme pairs in the X-Metal line up. Easily recognizable and unmistakably Oakley. These fit a wide variety of face shapes, and I love the extreme look delivered by these frames.

They are a bit on the small side, so larger noggins be ware. Also, they could use some smaller temple shocks to help accommodate a larger variety of faces and head shapes. I think the size 15 temple shocks would go a long way in helping with fit. My only complaint is that I can't wear them all day because they fit so tight.

Other than that, an absolutely amazing frame.
Slow -
I love these bad boys! The design is timeless, and although the first impression is a bit shocking I became acclimated to them quite quickly and wear them often. The fit can be tight on the head, they clamp pretty good. I'd recommend 15 temple shocks or the nose bridge will wear out quick. They can give a headache on a bad day with 25 temple shocks.

The coverage isn't amazing, your peripheral is looking at a titanium frame. But you can do pretty much anything in these glasses due to the light weight, tight fit and indestructible nature. And you'll look sick too!

Dann -
Probably the cheapest thing you can buy from Oakley. I've had one snap, and wore it for a while before replacing. Taking them off however, is a bigger pain. Swapping lenses should be done once, and then left alone.
GLiDE -
The trick to removal (besides being over a LARGE table top) is to slightly spread the clip with a small flathead screwdriver, just enough to get the screwdriver between the two frame nipples. Then spread the frame nipples with the screwdriver and it will spread the clip easily. The trick is to do it a little bit at a time until you can barely slide the clip off the nipples. You may have to rotate the clip to get it off without spreading the clip too far and snapping it in two.

Hope this helps.

Classic color for the more classic models out there. It is really matte black, unlike Dark, it really doesn't reflect light. So the frame is the same color under every kind of light.
Ed -
The most conservative frame color you can get. Especially good if your Oakleys will be abused, since black is the base resin color and scratches/scuffs won't be so obvious. Matte black is used exclusively on the SI (military) O-Matter models.
BrianJ1888 -
I like how this looks on the FatCat. It's kinda boring, and but a little stealthy with the subdued logos.
Dann -
Have this on my HI Blue Wisdom's. It complements the lens very nicely and makes for a nice subdued frame color.
DoctorCrip -
This is my favorite of the more commonly available frame options for O-Matter. I find that it gives the glasses a richer and less flimsy look and feel compared to most other options, especially when compared to Polished Black as well as other colors with a glossy finish. It also allows for the frames to stand out more, which is a great thing when the lenses are a color that really stands out such as Ruby.

It's a conservative shade but since they're on my SI M Frames and I use them for outdoor activity, they're perfect. They've already taken a pretty good beating (and will continue to take more) but still look almost as good as new.

Nice stealthy look. For when you don't want to get a lot of attention, matte black is the ideal color. Not as flashy as polished black. Like other people say about it: it's nice and conservative.

Matte black is nothing special to look at. It is about as conservative as frame colors can get. Black frames are about all that are allowed in military uniforms because it's conservative.

Nice color to have for everyday use. Not too flashy but still gives you the chance to rock the O without being over the top.
Viscouse -
A very demure color for my Why 8.0. It almost feels powder coated, not polished. It gives it a more substatial feel to it, so you know you're holding it. It blends in very well, as opposed to being flashy.

For what it is, it's a great design. Not to be flashy, but comfortable. Great for formal business meetings when you're not trying to jump out, but still want to appear put-together.

What I don't know is if this finish is more or less prone to scratches.
Chopsticks -
Had these on the Gascans, but went through 4 frames of matte black...because over time i found tiny bubbles/peeling of the paint near the nosebridge and the ear temples. Look-wise they are sleek, conservative and virtually scratch resistant. Oakley should formulate better ingredients in mixing of matte black paint. =[

I hope the same doesnt go for my monster dogs...

My first pair of Wisdoms are this color. It's classy, goes with everything, and it's not gaudy like some frame colors can be.
Emcee -
Love the look of the matte black.have it on my Gascan with Ice iridium lenses. problem is that it attracts oil from my hands and face. especially on the nose. but other than that, its a nice color.
jjkrause1 -
There's obviously nothing exciting about this color, but one thing to note is that it showcases the fine details of a frame better than Gloss Black does. If you're buying frames with lots of contours and lines, I'd definitely choose Matte over Gloss Black. It's also a bit more scratch and smudge resistant.
Ian -
One of my top colors for frames. Matte works with everything, it resists slipping off your head more than a painted or gloss frame, and there's no paint to wear off. Very utilitarian, and I love it because of that.
TERRORISM -
Although not very "flashy" or eye-catching, Matte Black serves as an excellent overall choice for a frame color. As mentioned by others, there's no "coating" on the frame to wear off, so this frame should be capable of looking great through heavy wear. And because of its neutral hue it can be paired with literally any lens and still looks good.

Celicagame -
Matte black is a great complimentary frame. If you want to go with a loud lens like fire or ruby nothing makes the lens stand out more than a matte black frame. It also looks great with a grey lens for the discreet look.
RangerUp Freshness -
I absolutely love this color frame. It's the only color I will buy, as it is suited for all occasions. It's simple, refined, and doesn't look cheap like the other glossy options. You feel like no matter what you're wearing or where you're going, your sunglasses will never define you or that they are being defined as a "bad option." Simplistic Awesomeness.

This is a really cool unique option by Oakley. I think its great in the Razorblades.

the coolest of frames but lets light in through the sides.
LEX7 -
one of my faves, im aiming to have all the clear frames one day. they are soo fookin cool. i have all 3 classic straight jackets that come in this colour, and the classic fives.
i dont know why this colour has not been brought into some modern models. it looks just like when you find clear glass on the beach it goes kind of frosted.
very cool!
Pander -
The translucency of the frame makes it look like the glasses are very light, but because it is matte aswell, it makes the whole looking more sturdy. So it's a good combination put together to create a remarkable frame option.
TERRORISM -
The characteristic that sets this frame apart from most others - its translucency - also ensures that almost any lens looks great paired with it. Hopefully Oakley will consider releasing this frame option for at least a few of the newer sport-specific models.
Toniclonic -
Absolutely awesome. Its almost like a frost color. My only complaint is that it seems to almost enhance light coming through the frames.
Ian -
This is, by far, my favorite frame option. It's unique, classy, and goes with everything.
Ian -
A very sick color. It goes quite well with my camo gear.
Dann -
Yet another normally prices frame that isn't the usual plain colors. The stripes are of much better quality than previous incarnations, with no pixelation. It's similar to the Snow Jungle and the edges are nice and crisp. The matte finish is a nice touch and easy to wear.
Ian -
These are extremely unique. You'll either love them or hate them. I was lucky enough to be able to pick up a pair of the "zebra" Fives for under $40. Normally, I wouldn't bother with a pair that I would never see myself wearing. I brought them home, and my wife shrieked with delight. "I hate animal prints, but those are awesome!" I figure that if an unusual pair can be had on the cheap, and they inspire my wife to let me buy more pairs, then they have to be pretty freakin nice.

The reason I even inquired about these in the first place was after reading Dann's views on cheap and unique glasses like the Woodgrain Montefrios. I bought those on a whim and loved them. These will have a special place as well. Even if you don't agree with his taste, if Dann says he likes it, it's a worthwhile buy.

This is probably the most versatile Soft Vault due to its half-circle shape. Early versions had a satin silver icon, but now they all have gunmetal icons. I have three of these and have used them for Half Jacket, Penny, and Hybrid S M-Frame.
maxarre -
I have used a series of medium soft vaults to protect my A-wire thicks since 1999 and they have lasted 7 years so far. I attached a keychain w/ beltloop to the end of the zipper on the soft vault so I could always attach it to my belt, and with a quick pivot of the wrist I could open the soft vault one-handed. The zipper handles would eventually wear out after about a year from the constant movement, but $20/year is worth it to protect a pair of Oakleys. About 4 years abo, Oakley got 'cute' and atarted encasing the zipper head in rubber w/ the Oakley logo embossed into it, but I found that the eye of the zipper head is still there if you drill through the top edge of the "O"and then I could attach my keychain. I am about to move to the AP Case, though, because it will do what I want without dagling on my thight or wearing out annually.

I prefer this to large soft vault as it seems generally more sturdy and versatile. Looks pretty cool as always.
oogie -
The perfect case for just about everything except your x-metals. If you have a variety of Oaks, this is a great option for you. The only reason to get the smaller vault would be if you only want to hold the smallest of frames.
kingphilbert -
Color: Black

I just bought this case and I already love it. The half circle does seem to be the way to go to fit the larger frames. I bought it with the Hatchet in mind, since a rep at O had told me the Monster Dog would be tight. The Monster Dog actually fits loose, as loose as the Hatchet does anyway. I can't wait because now I can always have an extra pair with me when I travel and know that they're cased and safe. I need to get a few more.
Ninpomaniac -
Very nice vault to protect your more fragile frames. Very sturdy.

I love collecting one of each case and this one is the most versatile in terms of size. Still wont fit the pocket
EastCoast -
This is an excellent case. If your frame won't fit well into a metal torpedo vault get this one. I have it for my Monster Dogs and it is perfect. It feels stronger than my other ballistic cases (Small and Large) and the Gunmetal Icon is a nice touch over the previous generation's embossed O.
Ian -
I bought this without knowing what I was buying. Now I wish that there were more out there for sale. It makes for a nice change when it comes to cases. I put my dartboards in it, and amongst all my other Large Soft vaults, they're easy to find.

COlor: Black

Recently lost this case and a Microbag. When I had it I found it especially good for my Straight Jackets and it had a smaller profile than the x-metal soft or the hard cases. I replaced it with a Square O Persimmon Hard Case and noticed the difference right away in size. I'll probably just grab another one on my next visit to a an o-store as they are not very much and provide excellent protection.

One of the coolest peices of kit ever, reduces vision, reduces hearing, gets uncomfortable after a while, goggles flap about and you can't really see much, strap is a pain to use, dye comes out onto your light coloured clothes, makes you look like a complete twat, it's fantastic, I LOVE IT!!!

Dann -
Ooohhhhh yeah! Finally at long last, I get this silly thing. It gets extrememly hot, when you put it on, and by the time you snap the goggles on, you're ready to take it off. I'm going to try this on my bike at some point.

Yet another piece of art. This time, it's made out leather. Perfect for snowboarding. Fitting the A Frame or the Wisdom requires the strap to be under the dreadlocks. The large fits perfectly into my head...also sits perfectly into The Shadow Head when displayed in my glass case.

Totally post-apocalyptic. Had to exchange goggles once to get the right fit. And yes, the strap is a pain to get tight. Otherwise the single most unique garment I've ever seen. Thrown together with some NewRock boots and a trenchcoat from Abbyshot and you just might get arrested at the airport!

Frame: What frame?
Lens: Black Iridium

One of those odd, bizzare, out of this world design by the O.

Made of leather, the helmet or the hat fits nicely to one's cranium. The leather dreads add a touch in making this piece an attention getter (if it's still not).

The goggles that is an optional part connects to the main headpiece using metal snaps. The snaps if not in use have little rubber covers with molded icons.

With it's price tag of $500 for the headpiece and an additional $250 for the optional goggles, this item is not for the common consumer but a must for a collector.

Bottomline, a nice display piece.
Rick -
The fact that I want one of these is proof that hanging out at the O-Review is unhealthy. I can't imagine there being a more insane piece of headgear on the planet. I have tried the Medusa on once and can't imagine what amount of courage it would take to hit the town with this thing - but I applaud those that try. A truly amazing product by a company that knows how to push the boundaries.
TT -
I wear my Medusa headgear while riding my motorcycle. No one dares to cut me off in traffic.

Kids in minivans hide in horror yet peek their heads from the window in disbelief.

Walking down the street, I've encountered kids in storllers scream and cry.. or just point and laugh.

If you want attention, this headgear will surely attract people 100%.

Functionally, this headgear does not have good ventilation, head gets hot and sweaty. Button on glasses are not well positioned for my head and eyes and there is no adjustment to the location of the glasses.

If I could find some buttons to rivet the glasses at different location on the hat, this headgear would work out great for motorcycling.
Dwcfastrice -
The coolest piece ever. Just got one. High quality leather. Excellent stitching. Comfrotable liner. Not something to wear all the time. Definetely a collectors piece. Cant wait for summer to wear this on a motorcycle. Heheh.
ichibandidisan -
Not the most comfortable thing to wear, but it wasn't advertised as comfort wear to begin with. The L size fits my head, but the side straps don't "hug" my cheeks that closely, leaving gaps on both sides (breathing room?). Design-wise awesome, radical, ridiculous, outrageous, stunning ........... should paralyze all those "mere mortals" out there who dare to stare. Too precious, imo, for regular wear, so more of a display or collector's piece.

Another one of those Oakley oddities. First time I saw these was on Scotty Cannon and I remember it being called the Wombat at that point too. It was around the time Over the Top had came out and it has a similar lens set up. I just can't see anyone walking down the street in this but cool none the less. Very WWII leather pilot helmet like, and I am sure somewhere, someone who worked on these had thought of that.

Frame: Medusa
Lens: Black Iridium

Lenses are typical Oakley, very clear. They are huge lenses and offer a wide field of view. However, the nose bridge pinches when you wear them.

The entire Medusa headpiece is something of an oddity, but very cool! Its actually very comfortable to wear and is not heavy.

The version seen on Scotty Cannon is very different from the production Medusa. His had a sort of integrated goggle.


bong -
Frame: Dark Brown Leather
Lens: Black Iridium

typical Black Iridium lenses, which is to say they're very darkly tinted but still remain Oakley clear. the huge, circle lenses offer good forward vision but then the way the goggles are designed, peripheral vision is totally blocked. but then again, they look absolutely cool. can't have a Medusa without them.

Frame: Leather
Lens: Black

The nosebridge does pinch up when you wear it, but I don't see any way around it. If you pull the Medusa up a bit, it just tends to float and works a little better. The lenses seem to be the original circles that haven't had anything punched from them. Almost like a lens sample. It snaps to the Medusa and does its job, but your peripheral vision suffers.

ONe of the coolest pieces ever produced. It mirrors the "Factory Pilot" theme that can be seen in some of the Oakley illustrations (like on the tissue paper).

A very clean and classy frame. I would liken it to the finish on a silver Porshce. Exact, refined, and wealthy looking. Not available on a large range of glasses, which is a shame because it is very nice in all respects.

This frame option is similar to the silver but a bit lighter in color. Its a very nice and conservative looking frame. Its looks great with the Ti Clear lenses.

How can one rate a sticker if not by design. This was a nice one. I paid $6 for the large (8") one and used it on a black sketchbook and it looks great. Traditional sticker though, no film to peel away like other Oakley stickers when you stick them so it made for worries that it may wrinkle when sticking it and not really for outdoors.

This one is in my 'I like it so much I don't know where to put it' Oakley sticker collection.

While some would say it's just a t-shirt, this garment is composed of thick material, and double-stitching at the seams gives it extra durability. A timeless classic - the mesh skull - is boldly screen-printed on the back. This is one of those shirts that you just want to keep forever.

I bought the 3" polished skull sticker thinking (incorrectly) that it would be thin enough to fit on the lid of a laptop. The sticker is REALLY thick, like perhaps 1-2" deep, and therefore incompatible with the application I envisioned. Otherwise, it's a great quality "sticker".

Oakley had the right idea when they decided to produce 3D, metallic stickers. They may be used for either their intended adhesive purpose, or as a display (and look particularly great sitting on a shelf inside an Oakely case). Despite the fact that this particular insignia does not bear the ellipse, most Oakley fans recognize it from a mile away.

I have this in the 5" Silver version and it is very well done. Now I have to find the red & gunmetal to make the set. Not sure why these are so hard to find, I stumbled across this one on the bay from an auto parts seller that had it in his store. The silver is a bright color but almost looks like stainless, not chrome like at all. See the pic in my gallery for a better look.

This is a great case for any of the Wire family and other smaller glasses. It is strong, lightweight, felt-lined, and has a nice raised icon on top. The Oakley web site says this case can be used for Mag Four S, but I tried and it does not fit. I also have a version of this Vault with a embossed icon that typically comes with Oakley's newer RX frames (sometimes called the RX Torpedo Case).
kingphilbert -
Color: Silver

The case itself looks great, but I don't feel 100% about it. It is supposed to fit the Monster Dog, but it's a very tight fit and they have to be placed in lenses straight down (or up). It would be awkward if the case was any bigger. It feels like the spring/hinge mechanism could be tighter to keep the case more securely closed. There is a slight gap on mine. The Icon on top, it feels like plastic. I am sure it will keep them safe and protected despite those small short comings.

Color: Silver w/ Black Oakley logo

If you go traveling with these, carry them in your hands as you pass through the airport checkin. If they are in your luggage the customs officer will stop you and do a cavity search because their x-ray turned up an unidentifiable high-density metal object. They will tear open your luggage, air out your underwear, loose your socks, and finally realize they have made a fool of themselves because your sense of style is decades ahead of their x-ray machine. At this point airport security will confiscate your Vault along with your glasses because THEY want it too.

Wonderfully perfect for all the small eyewear out there. A great fit for all the styles that find the regualar vaults too roomy. If it fits, get it.

A very good case to protect you sunglasses, but it would be better. The inside is not very well protected and the sunglasses can be a bit loose.

had one gave it to my cousin and he now loves it. I wouldnt put x metals in it though. just for O matters

Really nice case for shades that is definitely Oakley. I like mine a lot.
DoctorCrip -
I bought one to protect my Titanium Pewter/Titanium Iridium Square Wire 2.0 SH's, and it certainly does the trick. However, I soon realized that it's a bit impractical to carry around, leading me to wish I had bought a Soft Vault instead. I do like the design though, as well as the soft inner-lining. Also, I appreciate how the small bumps all around the case help to keep it from rolling around. Overall, a well designed case that I use only at home to store my delicate Sq Wires when I'm not wearing them. One last thing, mine has a pretty terrible smell inside of it. I don't know if this is a common occurrence, but it was like that from the day that I got it.
Ian -
For the same price as a Soft Vault, it's either an aesthetics or purpose-driven choice to get one of these. I have one for each of my "vintage" pairs, so I'll never grab one of them by mistake. Great for display or protection, not very handy for use.
sim303 -
Nice in principle, but a couple of problems. The Oakley site says this case fits Whiskers, but mine won't fit unless the glasses are angled with the lenses facing up, and then the case clamps down and compresses the frame slightly. Doesn't feel great, especially with pricey Rx lenses, so on to ebay it goes! I'd keep it for my 1st gen e-wires, but I noticed that when the case is closed part of the metal is exposed where the felt doesn't meet at the join. This feels perilously close to the lenses so my E's will remain in residence in my 1995 square metal vault! (It could use foam inserts too to stop frames flapping about inside.)
timoak33 -
What can I say? It looks cool but for the price it lacks in a few areas. Obviously for one it cant be used for climbing. 2 it sounds cheap as in, little rattles etc. The gold scew piece seems like untidy craftsmanship because it makes dreadful noise when screwing and doesnt thread like it should for a premium piece. 3 it will scratch easily.
Basically it will look cool in your display case and you can use the bottle opener but for attaching things etc might damage it a bit.
All in all I love the look and bottle opener use but practicality remains to be seen.
timoak33 -
It would take a lot to break this, its well made and will fit plenty of bills! Very nice to look at and use!
timoak33 -
Stunning piece though the price is steep! So im no golfer but im sure it will do the job well. The O in the middle should be pressed to allow the blade to be replaced. When you want to use just press the O and it flicks out in position, just make sure you fingers are clear!
Its a really cool piece but seems more like a weapon lol!
All in all its a cool addition to my collection.
DBCooper_into_O -
Love this shirt. I've had mine for about 4 years now, and gets washed very often due to that I work with it. The lines that make up the squares kind of started to come undone at the ends, and so I bought a replacement already. I do get a few compliments on it though every now and then!
LEX7 -
I totally agree with EC,
you cant tell from the pictures how nice this frame really is.
its a glossy black with very obvious silver sparkles.
you dont even need to put them in the sun to notice it.
i got these on my eye jacket 2.0 and must be the best colour they come in.
EastCoast -
Looks much different in bright light than dark. The sparkles really stand out and make the frame shine. Pictures do not do it justice.
TERRORISM -
Jet Black or Polished Black looks great with nearly any lens, but Metallic Black takes this appearance to an entirely new level. As with other metallic finishes, Metallic Black features small specks of aura scattered about the frame. Unlike most other metallic finishes, however, the specks appear to be brighter and more lucent.
TERRORISM -
Metallic Purple appears exactly as the name sounds, and this colorway adds an interesting alternative to the Half Jacket array. This dark color pairs great with Black Iridium, but it's only available in the Half Jacket lineup.
jjkrause1 -
I have a pair of Radars in this color. I've received a few compliments on how they really sparkle the sun. Looks just like a bass boat! I should also note that it is actually quite a bit darker than the Antix photo and color swatch shown above.
Ian -
A pair that I bought just for the color. Very sparkly. Gets lots of attention. I like it.
TERRORISM -
Metallic Red showcases a sporty and attention-grabbing color featured in many sport-specific models such as the M Frame, Radar, and Flak Jackets. It looks great paired with a variety of lenses, especially if you're participating in sports and are wearing "team colors" that the glasses need to be customized for.
TERRORISM -
Back in the day when I really started getting into Oakley collecting the Pro M Frames featured a very unique color: Metallic Sand. Very subtle in its hue with a sparkling finish, this chroma seems to have been engineered specifically for Rootbeer Unobtainium and Gold Iridium.

These bags are handy. You're sure to never smudge or scratch your lenses when they're safely stored in one of the microbags. They also tend to self clean to a point while storing glasses. I've found other clothes to be somewhat better, but these are the only way to store your glasses while not in use. Remember to only clean your lenses with the inside, as the outer part gets dirty and can scratch as much as a shirt tail.

It's amazing to see a different Micro Bag for the first time thinking that were possibly always just one color. I had had both small Pink and Blue bags with my first Frogskins. Large White had come with old Razor Blades. Then everything started coming in Grey with the classic OAKLEY stitched in Blue, small with black string and large with white string. When the Zero line appeared the had intro'd a medium size bag in Grey w/ white string with the original logo in grey and then the Stretch logo. After that all the bags went Black as we see them now with the Icon tag. This is a great addition to get with every pair of Oakley's and many other sunglass companies had started included them with their products as well - Arnette, Dragon, Bolle, Anarchy - but never to the quality of Oakley's. Granted they don't offer the protection a hard case would and they are ideal for cleaning the lens if you don't abuse the bag. A hard case is always recommended and just keep the bag in the case.

This item is currently exclusive to the Stretchline glasses Warden and Fatcat. It's just great to see a new color after 10 years of Grey and Black. I hope to see more colors in the future.

The best way to clean your Oakley glasses..
It comes really handy, but you're right Iwan, the tag is too big and troubled me sometime when I restore it on the soft vault..

But as usual, the bigger the "ICON" the better it looks.. :>

Why dont all sunglasses brands come with these great bags.
I never seperate the glasses from the bag.
the bag is all you need to clean your oakleys, unless you have some really big mark or something then I recommend some heavy breaths to.

I dont know why the white goggle bags are made out of a different material cos its not nearly as good.
Thomas64 -
Color: Black
The bag is good for storing your glasses but bad for cleaning. It leave streak behind when I use it to clean my lens. I use other microfiber cloth, it leave no streak. But I guess it'll do the job to remove stain when you are on the go and you don't have a cloth handy.

The classic Oakley bags, very important for keeping the Os in tip top shape. I find the older generation better for cleaning smudges than the newer ones, but nonetheless they offer a great way of protecting and cleaning the lenses. Important to note that the bag should be washed every so often to remove grease/dirt.
banarno -
The older generation of microbags was a far superior microfiber material than the new ones.
Super for removing dust and light smudges too.
oogie -
A staple in the Oakley world. Old bags = good. New bags = bad.
Pander -
Great in keeping my Oakley's nice and clean. I have to agree with everyone here that indeed the old ones clean a lot better then the newer ones.
strake -
I like them for the fact that my glasses are never scratched when they are housed inside these bags. They provide great convenience for those without a microfiber cloth. If you are without a vault, layering the sunglasses using two bags will provide sufficient impact protection.
splatter -
My 1st gen M frames bag was quite the work horse both case and cleaner. It worked well on both counts and eventually I got cases. However the bags with my later frames (wires and others) had bags that didn't seem to really clean as well.

Love the simplicity of it all and utility of it.
I only use them on the go, not at home, where i use a larger microfiber cloth.

Very normal sunglasses bag. Nothing in special, but as they come together with the glasses, are useful. But make sure to buy a case, these bags aren't enough

i have so many lyin around its not funny. i thought of making a microbag quilt. that would be sweet. very good product have to wash em' every 3 months or so. or i do. because they loose their cleanin' power...

Theyre good for cleaning, but for storage I will always opt for something more solid.

Great looking bags, love the material, it does an outstanding job at protecting/cleaning your lens.

Try to keep them away from dirt and like its been said always clean the lens with the interior of the bag.

Those bags can be washed with a mild soap in the washing machine without any problem.
Rick -
I could probably upholster a large couch with the amount of microfiber bags I own. They are quite simply the best bet for keeping your glasses clean and safe while out and about. I use a large goggle bag to tote my glasses around in so I can keep my new bags pristine. I don't use the bags to clean my glasses because they can pick up dirt, lint, and other small particles that can end up scratching your lenses. Something to think about. I prefer the white-cord bags since they are a bit bigger and more versatile than the black-cord ones. Recent bags seem to be made of a thinner and less durable consistency. I prefer the older bags.
s3an_looi -
Good for general usage and for storing your glasses. However, the cloth that i bought for cleaning pc monitors and lcd's work better. Protection is a problem as well. it is convenient to use though.
jumpman73 -
I love having these around. My house pretty much has one everywhere, the living room, bedroom, kitchen. I feel like these are the best things to use when you need a quick clean. Obviously thats what they were made for. When I can't carry a vault with me, these microbags go with me.
DoctorCrip -
Color: Red

I can't get enough of these red Microbags. In my opinion, since Oakley sunglasses all scream "look at me," the bag that I keep them in should as well - and the red one certainly does. Also, I prefer the older style with the standard black tag to the newer and smaller red tag since red with black is just such a slick color combination, plus it matches the black drawstring.

they work very well for other optics like rifle scopes and things

I liked it when there was a few different sizes like for the m-frames, it was a huge bag, now its one size fits all

The tag is rather large and tends to get caught between the zipper of my soft case.
It's the only thing I can think of that hasn't been mentioned in the previous reviews.

Color: Black
It's really a must have for your plutonite lenses. I have it always with me no matter where I go. However it should be washed very often, if not it smears the oil of your skin. The early versions are much better and softer than the newer ones. I don't know why this was necessary, but it's not the best call from Oakley.
LukePhillips -
I have an older one and some newer ones with the blakc drawstring. The newer ones are not as big and dont seem to clean as well. Still better than most anything else you can use though. Always good to keep a few of these around for smudges.
Matt SG -
Colors: Black/Black drawstring, Black/White drawstring, Black HDO tag/Black drawstring, Black HDO tag/White drawstring, Brown Square-O specific, Red Stretchline specific, White Os Ladies specific, White/Black drawstring (sold off cos stained), Black with large embossed HDO logo, Ducati-Oakley specific (sold off with Ducati MDs)

I possibly own/have owned the standard Oakley MF bag in every permutation possible (not including the old-skool era ones). They're great for protecting what's inside, but I find the cloth material generally a tad thin. And the sizes (and thicknesses) vary from bag to bag, I've found. I once had a small slight scratch on my new Eyepatch, even though they were in the microfiber bag, because I put them in a large ballistic soft vault (came with my Radars), but forgot to remove the "case made in china" sticker which was right where the lens was just so slightly scratched! Care for Oakleys takes a lot of trial and error, I've come to learn...

Also, they absolutely do not stand up to washing (with detergent) and if you scrub just a little hard, you can see the threads coming apart when you stretch the case open to fit the glasses. Basically very fragile. I don't exactly recommend cleaning lenses very enthusiastically with them too as well - check first for dust or lint of any kind, as they will certainly scratch those highly-scratchable Oakley lenses of yours. All said, they're an absolute must and necessity if you own any pair of Oakley shades.
Ian -
What can I say? Perfect for cleaning any type of lens! The black ones are best, since they're easy to come by. I have a white one, a Soviet one, a brown one, and a snow camo one. The black ones seem to be the softest, and they clean smudges best. The goggle one is a must-have if you have goggles. You can never have too many microbags for cleaning or light storage.
flippj -
i prefer the older ones, the quality seemed better and softer, but i dont know another soft bag thats as good as the oakley ones. i prefer the original grey myself over the black.
Xtremehardy388 -
It's an all right bag. Good for storing the glasses in but it's not too good on getting the lenses clean. I'd stick with the lens cleaning kit.The bag just seems to smear whatever is on the lenses. However, the RX bag seems to do better...go figure
Farlius -
Color: Black, Bamboo, Multi colored dyed versions, Black Mini bags for replacement lenses

The original black bags are great and the Mini's are cool for storing my replacement lenses.

I have the Bamboo version with my Burnquist Gascans and it leaves all kinds of fibers all over the lense and frame (especially on the jet black) while cleaning so it now stays on display.

I have found the special, multicolored-dyed bags to not be as good for cleaning as the regular black and that they do more smudging than cleaning.

Hand wash for sure.

This isn't the same microfiber as the Microbags. It's got more pile to it than the smooth bags do. I'd liken this towel to ones that you would use to detail a car. It's cotton woven very finely, not the synthetic that LEX is thinking of.

This does not sound sensible.
I dont know about the rest of you but my golf towel is used to get all the sand, mud and grass of my clubs, I would not think a microfiber towel would work very well. I need the ruffness and texture of a towel to do some proper cleaning.
Brewski -
Nice towel, but the pile makes my hands feel VERY rough. Bothers me to touch. The microfiber towel is designed to wipe moisture from the club grips if it is raining. The regular golf towel should be used to clean the club heads.

This is a fantastic towel. Gets all the dirt and stuff out of the grooves of the club. Very helpful in wet conditions. Fantastic in keeping the ball clean as well.

This frame color seems to come exclusively with the 24K lens, the one exception being the Scar, which came with Fire. It's a basic lense, but a nice alternative to Black, and that combo also looks very nice.
dan-E -
A very deep, sparkling blue that looks amazing in sunlight. The little sparkly bits give it almost a metallic look and when paired with the Fire lens, they look great.
RubyMars -
One of my favorite frame colors. Dark dark blue, unless you're in the sunlight where the metal flecks sparkle like crazy. Although it wasn't offered in much lense variety, it would be very versatile for customization.

A deep metallic blue that sparkles beautifully under bright sunlight. Out of direct light, it almost looks like gloss black. Definitely a good match for 24K lenses.
x-metalman -
Used to have this in my Scars with Fire lenses and I must say I like it way better with Fire than I do with 24K. Plus, the frame kinda sparkles in the sun. Very cool.

A very nice, dark based frame. Some sparkle in the sun, but I think this color looks great paired with the 24k lens. I had these in my Jacket 2.0 (stolen from auto, bummer!). Loved em'!

I would have put this in the glitter section, ive got this on my eye jackets and it is just like the joker, smoke, corten and black gold frames.
it is a nice dark blue and then when in the light/sun you can see all the goldy sparkle bits.
BrianJ1888 -
A great background for the flash of the 24K lens. I like it on the HalfJacket.
mrtwenty1 -
very good color it blends well with the 24k iridium lens tint. very cool in the sun.. unique color for a very extraoridinary piece of eye wear.
TheVault -
Mostly paired with 24k, I have them in my EJ 2.0, a great frame color that stand out a LOT with the 24k lens.

The fact that the icons are gold helps to make the frame stand out.

Some sparkles in the frame when direct light hits it, a must to at leas own one.

Mine are black. I have the 6 inch and 8 inch. I used the 6 inch while in the firefighter academy and I use them for work. They are good and pretty darn comfortable. I don't know which generation they are but no part of the sole is sewn into the boot. They do squeak, when wet, but they dry fairly quick. Also, during the winter, my feet stay warm. I cover a lot of ground and the tread does not seem to be fading too quick. They do not have a "clean toe" and won't take a shine. That is a problem in some departments. However, they are great for duty use and PT.

Frame: Black
Lens: Black Iridium

Well, I really am surprised that no-one has reviewed these. Over here in the UK, these are definitely the most common glasses, and for a very good reason. Even though they are one of the cheapest in the range (my first pair) they are brilliant.

They are quite tight, so feel more secure for sports than splices, but not excessively. The lenses are great, and offer good range of vision.

If you are on a budget, or just don't want to spend the cash on another pair, go for these!

It was great to get a smaller frame Jacket when the Fives were the only other option for size. They sold very well too, especially Powder (which used to be FMJ and then started showing up as paint) and FML Violet, which I don't see listed. The triangular lens was nice and I loved the "O" fashioned out of the frame as the x-metals are. These had metal "O"s a year later from release. The Tortoise frame was nice if you wanted a choice from Rootbeer and if you looked close it was a weird stipple print unlike other Tortoise frames.

Bottom Line: awesome glasses. Nice tight wrap, no slipping, super durable. Had mine for 4 years before UV damage cracked the top of the right orbital. Thank god for warranty work. Of course, they have their faults... the stems aren't as sturdy as the frame, the lettering on the bridge wears off (an Oakley trademark) and I don't have polarized lenses. All together the best first pair of oak leys you can buy.

Found them in a Dairy Queen bathroom and thought they were fakes. Little did I know they were a limited edition that were only available in Canada through select Sport Chek locations. I believe they were available elsewhere outside Canada, but I have it on pretty good authority that they were a limited edition in Canada. Could be wrong though. I ended up turning them in, but a little part of me wished I had a pair. A very flashy and youthful color combination that made the otherwise sedate Minute frame look fun and crazy. Would match the Electric Mustard EJ quite well.

This is the model that I have the most of. It just suites me best. This model is not for everyone because eveyone's face has a different size and shape to it. Not every color combo is the best for me but that is true of all models. Disclaimers been said, I have a lot of the color combos in this line. I gotta say that most of the color combos are excellent, in my opinion. My favs are the gunmetal frames with emerald and fire, Jet Black with ruby, titanium, and emerald, Metallic Black with Black polarized, and the Polished Aluminum and Chrome with Black iridium. Excellent line for my needs and the price is reasonable.

Frame: Cobalt
Lens: +Red Iridium

Having one of the longest product life-cyles of any Oakley eyewear, the Minute offers a unisex style for smaller profiles. The wrap and rake of the lens/frame configuration also provides great coverage and protection on the periphery, and the unobtainium earsocks offer additional comfort. For this particular color combo, the "royal blue" color of the frame compliments the +Red Iridium nicely. Since this pair is becoming more and more difficult to find, you may want to pick them up quickly if you happen to find them...

The contrast of blaze orange against the silver-white frame of this pair is amazing. Matching orange icons and Oakley logo on the nosebridge add additional visual appeal, and orange unobtainium earsocks provide additional comfort. Encased in a full metal jacket of Oakley's 5.56 finish, the frames have added strength. To top it all off, the fire lenses are polarized. No matter how you slice this loaf of bread, this is just one classic pair of Oakleys.

Frame: FMJ 5.56
Lens: Black Iridium


These fit me well. Too well.

They wrap my head and match the contours of my face so well in fact that fogging of the lenses is imminent.

For the few brief seconds that I can see myself in the mirror however, they fit and look terrific. They're a little smaller than the Twenty, and a little more sleek than the Straight Jacket.

Although I like the Minutes a lot; and although they fit my face so snugly, I can't give them a poor mark because I think the quality is there. They don't have any major features with which I have great problems (spring hinges).

Both of my Minutes now belong to my girlfriend. I gave her a pair of Code Blue/ Black Iridium for X-Mas; but I don't know exactly what happened when it comes to my FMJs.....

At one point, and there's still lots of them... everyone and they're dog had them. Probably the most common Oaks out there. Fits smaller and a bit narrower compared to most O-Matter frames, which would be a great feature especially for small faces and active people. If you can get your hands on some different colored earsocks and lenses, since they came out with a billion of them... mix and match them -- so many ways to personalize these babies.

These are the most common style where I live. I tried them on; way too small for me. Which is funny, because I see so many people with big heads wearing these - they must want to be trendy. My advice: get a pair that fits you, especially considering these are suited for smaller heads / women.

I give these a four anyway because they do what they are supposed to do and at a good price. The peek-a-boo cut on the earsocks is a nice touch.

Frame: Jet Black (Hawaii) Minute, XX (Twenty), M Frame

I have to say that I agreee with King in that, without the emotion for the schools, I didn't really care for most of the color combos for this line. That being said, I think that there are some pretty awesome combos as well, for this line. Many of you may not be familiar with the University of Hawaii's teams or colors but this color combo is fantastic. The fact that these are now becoming somewhat of a collector's item adds to it's desirability. I know that there is a minute combo similar to these that is also out of production but still available through some venues. The difference between that one and the UH model is the laser etched "H" and the wording and side "O"s are emerald green on the UH one and there is no "H" and the lettering and side "O"s are silver. The XX and M frames have the jet black frames as well. The XX color combo, to the best of my knowledge, is unique. I am not positive, but I believe that there is no Emerald lens available for the m frames which makes it even more of a collector's item. The University of Hawaii collegiate line is one worth getting if you can.

Frame: Jet Black
Lens: H.I.Blue

Straight Jacket > Twenty(XX) > Minute in sizes. Those three are quite similar in style. All nicely fit on Asian faces. Minute is quite popular and readily available but this lens option-H.I.Blue- is rare. Great for night vision. Blue coating on the lens makes this more unique and increses contrast. Great for night sports.

Great for small heads. Admittantly, my head is just too big to be wearing the minutes and fives. But I will say the minute is a great style and a pretty universally likeable look.

Frame: FMJ Gunmetal, Rootbeer
Lens: Fire, Gold
Minutes are easily one of the most popular styles Oakley has ever made. I really like the color of the gunmetal frame and it made the lenes and metallic "O" really stand out. I think I'm going to get rid of the Rootbeer pair though, they're kind of boring. These were also a great style for women, particularly the "style" pairs (Light blue frame/lens, Purple/Violet lens).

The minutes are cheap sunglasses with very good quality.
They hanven't anything in special, but still look Oakley, and that's enough.
If you haven't much money to spend with singlasses, Minutes are an excelent option.

This Gunmetal fame is simply beatiful and perfect. The fire lenses are awesome from outside but very bad to look through

Picked these up as one of the unique colorways that came out back in the day. The minutes gave us a lot of variety to choose from and the Light Blue lens is a good evening tint. I leave them on my shelf for the collection, but I imagine they'd serve their purpose.

These are very nice color combo to represent UNC. The powder blue really stands out and is pretty unique. Its too bad they didn't mix this with an Ice iridium lens. The minutes don't fit me very well. They are kind of small but other than that they are light weight.

I'm gonna have to say that the Minute is the best Oakley for sports. They are light weight, smaller FMJ, good wrap, very durable and over all great feel. I use these whenever i'm out playing sports and they stay firmly in place. The gunmetal frame with fire lens looks so awesome, i always get looks with the combo.

Frame: Navy (Michigan)
Lens: Black Iridium

No surprise why this has been one of Oakley's longest running models. Minute takes the smooth lines of Eye Jacket and the more triangular lens shape of Straight Jacket, then shrinks the overall size a bit to provide a snug fit for the smaller-headed folk among us (both men and women equally well). Like other members of the Jacket family at that time, Minute has Unobtainium on the earstems but plain molded-in nosepieces. The earsocks have thin oval holes toward the back where the earstems poke through... a little unique flair to distinguish the styling a bit from other Jackets. The small, teardrop-shaped lenses fit well for those with flat noses and/or high cheekbones, as the upswept lower frame is less likely to rest on one's cheeks compared to other lens/frame geometries.

Like the Michigan XX, the Navy frame color is a paint finish over white O-Matter. The metal icons on the earstems are a light yellowish gold. The block M etched on the lower left lens completes the Michigan theme, but I still think Oakley should have used 24K for the lens color instead, especially since it was already available with other frame colors.
Matt SG -
Frame: FMJ 5.56
Lens: iCE iRIDIUM

My first Oakleys!!! I've had these for like, 7 years now, bought them in 2000 in NZ, while on overseas army training. I remember I searched high and low around the streets of Auckland till I found this pair in the exact lens colour and frames, which I wanted. Since then, I've replaced the frames (it snapped at the bridge, I crushed it :p) at my local service center, which most prob shipped it to the US to install. I specifically asked for the exact same FMJ frames again with blue "O" logos to match the ice iridium lenses. The new FMJ material is thicker and less prone to snapping than the frames I got back in 2000. But I actually prefer the look of the old frames more (they're more shiny)...

The Unobtainium earsockets are grippy and comfortable. The only complaint I have is the bridge part doesn't have Unobtainium and doesn't fit my nose too well (I'm Chinese) and they didn't (and still don't) have an Asian fit. All in a fantastic pair of specs. These minutes rock!!!

Frame: Black
Lens: Grey Polarized

I've had these for quite some time now, my first Oakley. Perfect fit for me, perfect wrap for my face. A really good budget pair, if you're looking for one. Time for me to get new lenses because of 'use and abuse'. but the frames are still perfect. Really sturdy construction...

When going out, it's nice that it doesn't have that trademark "Oakley" branding. It looks better too.

And of course the cool rainbows you see on car windshields while driving because of the Polarized lenses... =)
TERRORISM -
Frame: Blue Tortoise
Lens: Polarized Ice

After the disappointment of the standard (brown) tortoise frames, I had my suspicions that the blue tortoise frames would be similar. When the glasses arrived in the mail, my suspicions were confirmed: at a glance or from a distance the "tortoise" frames appeared to be marble-esque, giving the frame an interesting, dynamic look; upon close inspection, however, the "color change" in the frames appeared as if it was merely an enlargement of cheap newspaper clippings (very unnatural), almost resembling "small dots".

Of course, the o-matter frame was lightweight and durable, and being Minutes the glasses provided great coverage for smaller faces. Also, despite the drawback of the frame aesthetics the blue hue complimented the ice lenses and almost made them appear to "glow", and polarization enhanced the optics as well. In this particular pair, however, one of the lenses was loose in the orbital and I am assuming this was an anomaly and not due to a common defect for this specific frame/lens color combo.

Overall: a solid pair of shades, but given their pricepoint of $155 for an o-matter frame Oakley could have done more with the "tortoise" feature to make it appear more fluid and less fabricated.

Well I have these for maybe 7 years now and they were my first oakley sunglasses. Thanks to them I started collecting oakley stuff. I still have them but last yaar one of the legs just broke so Im trying to find a new frame with the same color from which I can use the leg. Anyways they were absolutely perfect and after all these years they still look amazing. If I find the frame than Im definitely going to repair them or Ill buy a new ones for my little collection.

These are just too small for a regular sized head. My brother has a pair that he loves, and his head is bigger than mine. They just look goofy on him. I think he only got his pair to "match" my Straight Jackets. With that said, they have some of the most interesting colorways outside of the Collector's Frogskins.

Frame:black/pearl/polished rootbeer/polished aluminum/jet black
Lens: black iridium/vr28 black iridium/titanium iridium

In my opinion they are one of the most classic designs released from oakley ever.Traditional elements were fused together with o-matter and unobtainium in order to release the minute which by the way is a very succesful model in regard with sport activities.Yet,the minute can be worn with everything,and fits with everything since there is such a big variation of frames and lenses to choose from,that makes impossible not to find something that you like.
The frame is nice and slick.It adopts the face absolutely,and with the help of the unobtainium has a very tight grip on the head.While the minute was designed for small to medium heads,I find that it fits well to the larger faces like mine,with no visibility issues whatsoever.Even though there are no unobtainium nosebombs,the fit is still tight and secure and it feels like head and frame become one thing.
The oval shape of the lenses is both elegant and contemporary.I already have worn them in formal occasions,and they were matching good enough with the suit.having said that,it's important to point out that the lens coverage is satisfactory,and I never felt that the width of my field of vision wasn't enough.
Since they have the largest selection of frames and lenses,they are one of the most suitable models of oakley,for someone to start off,and hopefully start a collection,because one is just never enough!!!

This was my second pair of Oakley glasses. I left a pair of the silver and Ice at a rest stop. I loved these glasses. They felt very secure when wearing them and the fire iridium lens was great for even the sunniest days. I would still be wearing them if I hadn't broken the ear piece when i sat on them. Tried to get a replacement part from Oakley but they were out of stock.

Best pair of sunglasses I have ever owned. Bought them new at the Sunglass Hut many years ago and lost them the other day.

Very dark lenses - no one could see my eyes. Comfortable but they were a little small for my face.

They were in excellent condition. I have had 6 different pairs of Oakleys over the years - these had lasted me that long!

I'm on the search for a new set now. Maybe the Bottle Rocket or the discontinued Bottle caps.

I guess it was time to move on.

Frame: polished black
Lens: Black Iridium

I have a small face and after trying on several different styles i settled with the Minute 2.0. I have a small head and they dont stick out behind it and the Unobtanium keeps a solid fit on my head. Nice styling and very good neutral light transmission. I see things clearer and with more color. Not a bad price point either for a really good quality set of O's
TERRORISM -
Frame: Brown Tortoise
Lens: Bronze Polarized

Holding true to its name and heritage, the Minute 2.0 provides adequate coverage for smaller faces. The newest rendition (2.0) enhances coverage a bit by increasing the original Minute lens size and altering the shape from "teardropped" at the periphery to more of a "squared-off" angle. Also similar to the original Minutes, version 2.0 offers Unobtainium earsocks for increased comfort but has no unobtainium nosepieces. The Bronze Polarized lenses increase contrast and are easy on the eyes even on overcast days. My concern with this pair is the frame: the Brown Tortoise seems to have been created "cheaply". It appears "marbelesque" from a distance... yet upon closer inspection the dark-colored portion of the frames looks similar to viewing a cheap newspaper print under a magnifying glass. For the price of the glasses, the dark coloration in the frames could have been made to look more "natural" or "seamless".
TERRORISM -
Frame: Dark Amber
Lens: Dark Bronze

Ditto for the Dark Amber/Dark Bronze Minute 2.0: great protection for smaller faces coupled with increased coverage over the original Minutes by recalibrating the lens configuration. The Dark Bronze lenses are actually a bit darker than their Bronze Polarized counterparts, but of course without the benefit of polarization. An excellent pair of shades with a neutral color that will match most any attire.

Matt SG -
Frame: Polished White
Lens: G30 Black Iridium

Ah, my second Minute. The first was the original Minute, now it's Minute 2.0. I have to say they've really improved on the fit this time. More purposeful, slightly more aggressive, yet still, well, minute. It's not too large so it fits small-medium faces perfectly. As Asian as I am, this fits me fine so I don't see a need for an AF version. Frame material is on par with the new Straight Jackets. They seem solid enough to last a few years, if you keep them in a vault when not in use.

Unobtanium is great for keeping them on your face and on your head firmly, when propped up. I think this is the best looking colorway for the Minute 2.0 so far. The G30 B.I. was one of the reasons for buying it. It's great for overcast conditions, and can pull itself off even in sunny weather, IMO. A great all-purpose lens. 4 and half skulls.

Got these off the Oakley Custom website with custom engraving since it was going to say "POLARIZED" on it regardless and love these things. Pearl white with white ear socks and black iridum lenses will go with anything and in any outdoor condition. They're a little small on a larger frame as the name suggests, but they still look great and aren't so damn huge like the Monster Dogs! Love 'em, have to since I can't return 'em!

Dann -
Frame: Damson
Lens: VR28 Black

I feel the Minute did not need an upgrade, but many models have been moved to the current styles. This along with the Straight Jacket take similar cues, and feature a faux temple lug. This allows for some design coloration and gives it a unique look. Functionally they fit well and are comfortable. The choice of colors does help and is consistent with earlier Minute offerings.
B3 -
Frame: Metallic Black
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized

I have a smaller profile and the Minute 2.0 live up to their reputation for such noggins. The fit is very similar to the Monster Pup, except the Minute 2.0 adds the use of Unobtainium for a much better seating. Although the styling of the frame is not my favorite, I still find myself reaching for my Minute 2.0s when I want a sports pair that I know won't fall off my head.

I also really enjoy the Metallic Black frame. It looks much better in the sun than indoors or on an overcast day.
FISHHEAD -
Frame: Matte black(USStandard issue) and cinder red
Lens: Polarized grey (per above) and black iridium

I am active duty and needed a pair to replace my XXs (which have been to hell and back). I actually wanted to replace the XX lenses but SI doesnt carry that and oakley sells the lenses for 50-75 bucks

Well, I instead got the minutes 2.0, they are very similar to the XXs except they are a tad smaller and there are no nosebombs. During my workouts, the nosepieces are slippery, this did not happen with my XXs(-1 star). I use flaks during my runs instead

Within 1 week tho, the lens got scratched as I was throwing them in and out of my flight suit (filled with zippers) and failed to put them in protective case

Also got a pair of the cinder red/black iridium for 40 bucks at the oakley vault. I love the color, looks almost black unless you are in the sunlight, then it turns into a nice darker candy apple red.

Frame: SI
Lens: Grey

I lost my original minutes, back in 2006, from a car accident. I've had various pairs after but always missed the Minutes. Since I've become part of the SI program, I figured I'd pick these up. They look a lot bigger and bulkier than they really are. These are my "active" work glasses (firefighting/inspecting). I don't take them in fires with me, though. Anyway, the lenses are good at blocking out light and have the hydrophobic coating. The SI frame is basic and not flashy (which I like). I have a smaller face so it fits mine pretty darn well. The unobtanium doesn't disappoint---works just like it's supposed to. I thought the lugs were unobtanium but they're not. Still, the "O" icon on the sides lets everyone know you're wearing the best damn eye wear out there

I passed mine on since it just wasn't big enough to get a true reflection of how cool I looked. The angle at which the mirror is bent makes it quite awkward to use it without having to pick it up. I wouldn't go out of your way to find one of these.

I got this movie for Christmas one year and after watching it once, it got shelved and never touched again. However after finding out Tom Cruise plugs the Romeo when it first came out, I popped it back in and then ended up watching it all over again due to nothing better to do. They are used in the place of the usual computer that give the mission brief and then explodes (Real Romeo's would never break down. At least not with the amount of explosive that would still be safe by just throwing the glasses away from you).

The Romeo's are a little different than the retail versions (as with most models making movie debuts). They have straight ear stems rather than the 'hammer' design, and are equipped with an internal microphone.
Jah-9's -
I really thought the Romeos looked stupid when I was M:I-2, and I still think they look stupid on tom cruise. someone with a bigger head could pull it off maybe, but not him. Also I'm not a huge fan of Romeos but that's no secret
ford -
Did you notice the screws connecting the ear stems to the frame are sticking out?? And the arms are SUPER loose when he's moving the glasses around? Weird that someone on the production would deliberately loosen the ear stems.
Rick -
I embarrassed my wife in the movie when I basically screamed "I have those" when he was climbing with the Romeo's. Probably the only time Tom Cruise looked cool in my eyes.

Great movie. One of the most memorable for me. That was one hell of a product placement with the Romeo, and it's part of the reason why the X-metal lineup is so popular today. I hope they make M:I-3 soon, though; it's been 5 years since M:I-2

Thanks to fellow o-review member, I can now review the money clip! A great clip, sweet design and look. OK, anything with an icon is a sweet look. I usually use the leather wallet, but I've been able to use the money clip for nights on the town when you want to scale down what you take out with you.

Looks great and stylish. Unlike other money clips, this clip only opens a little bit. The metal icon was glued and susceptible to being unglued and lost.
Munkfish -
Lovely item. As was mentioned, need quite a fair colleciton of notes to be useful, but mine came with the small leather attachment, which is much more practical (and therefore use the money clip as a belt clip). The finish does scratch a little to easily for my liking.
DoctorCrip -
A pretty unique and stylish little money clip in appearance, but a bit flawed in design. The tendency of the icons detaching along with the inability to securely grip lesser amounts of bills result in me only giving it four skulls. A piece better suited for the display case rather than in one's pocket. Still, if you're going to get one to use, get the one that comes along with the leather wallet piece and pop off the icons and crazy glue them back on.
flippj -
use it for display only, came off the wallet, looking at it i think i would need a fair amount of paper for it to work well.
Farlius -
In my opinion works better with the leather wallet than solo. The icons have a nasty habit of coming off but it's nothing some superglue can't fix. Get's scratched fairly easily but it's got a brushed finish which can hide that (if you care). Definitely not like otheer money clips and provokes conversation.
o-xide -
Nicely done again only by Oakley. I have searched and searched for a cool looking one by every manufacturers around but none of them came close to matching to Oakleys. Having the 2 loops around the temple area really helps out holding the glasses in place. Wear one and you look like from the SWAT team! The only thing negative about this is the fabric....like using something more comfortable like cashmere but I won't really complain because this is mostly used as a display piece.
Tick -
Read this before buying the Monster Balaclava! We finally had some good below zero days to truly try this out. Let me start with the good. It fits very good & is quite warm plus the Earstem loops are a great idea. Now the bad. most of the stuff which makes this look cool also has no function. The 2 nylon straps attached to the AP type rings are permenantly stitched in place so they have no functional purpose. The same goes for the 2 nylon loops on the front. underneath the Velcro flap there is a 2-layer panel of lycra type material that is such a high thread count that it's actually difficult to draw air through but, because it doesn't readily let air out coupled with the fact that the chin area fits very snug, means every warm, moist breath is deposited directly onto your HDO's making them very low definition. The Velcro flap does nothing to help this. Then there is a patch of the same ballistic nylon stitched in front of your mouth who's only purpose, as far as I can tell, is to further restrict air flow. Oakley could've definitely spent more time on functionality rather than making it look like it would be functional. This should not have won best apparal in the Icon Awards
kingphilbert -
Frame: bronze
Lens: titanium

Most definitely a more aggressive style. It's a rigid frame with sharp lines. It remains a very comfortable frame as well and is a fairly tight fit for how large they are. Don't look at them and think they are too big, they are a better fit than the Straight Jacket and very similar to Dragon Ghost if you've worn them. The Bronze frame is actually a dark bronze (slightly metallic brown) where the photos makes it look more like brass. Great lens, bronze base with the titanium iridium coating so it looks more black than gold.

Frame: Night Camo
Lens: Grey

I need to sing my praises for Oakley's camo frame colors here. I love the Monster Dog and found myself looking at all of Oakley's Camo frames most recently. The print is awesome and this pair was a more logical choice over White Camo. (Only because I can't bring myself to wear a white frame). Still a great frame and actually the first time I had ever worn the Grey (non iridium) lens. I am actually enjoying it more so then when I had tried Black Iridium.

I like the Monster Dog frame, even for a large frame, it still fits really well. The only problem is the lack of Unobtainium nose bombs, I find after extended periods of wear that my nose hurts quite a lot. Otherwise an excellent glass.

Frame: bronze
Lens: titanium
So far i must say i am very pleased with my most recent acquisition. The monster dogs are a very large pair, they feel much bigger than they look in picture. The lens also appear much larger than most other pairs. For my face the lens coverage is excellent from side to side and at the top absolutely no light passes by the frame, although there is an opening at the bottom, (but most light is not likely to come from below.) The bronze is a subtle frame, and there is little contrast present with the dark silver logo, but the logo is massive and unmissable (for all of you who love to advertise the O) I find them to be great glasses, superior to my previous pair (topcoats)
Martin -
Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Grey Polarized

Great looking frames, very imposing. They also fit very well, but I have a wide head. That said, I never had a pair of sunglasses that fit this well before.

I picked this colour mainly because I don't like to wear something that stands out too much, like shiny or bright colours. I tried on the Ducati version, nice, but very dark and very shiny, they basically made my (quite pale) face light up like a christmas tree. I much prefer these as they are definitely present but also a bit more subtle. They make you look quite imposing, but in a "covert action" sort of way because of the matte effect.

People with smaller heads/faces, may want to pick another model, as these easily cover your brows and are quite wide. As a guide, my head has a circumfence of 57cm, measured around just above the ears, over the base of back of skull and across my brows.

There is practically no light leaking in from the edges, something I find important when driving. The lenses are great, read my in depth review of those in the lenses section under "Grey Polarized".

If you need a hard case for carrying these around, it can be a problem because of their size, I lucked out and found a black suede "Gucci" (yes yes I know;-) case that seems sturdy and house the Monster Dogs quite snugly when they are in the micro bag.

Monster Dogs look very Modern, they are comfortable and they are a wraparound so they cover your whole eye area so they are good for sport.

I didn't like the Monster Dog for the longest time. I eventually got used to the big lense and hunted down my fluoro pack. I like the uniqueness of this colorway.

Great coverage from every angle, no blind spots, lightweight, what's not to like?

Lens: Grey

Easily my favourite O matter pair that I can wear everyday, and feel comfortable wearing. The coverage is excellent, it is my cheapest, and one of the most satisfied oakley eyewear purchase I've made. The pink kind of makes it weird for me...but with my long bangs...you can't even see the O icon so it's all good.

Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Black Irid
I have the first gen Monster Dog (With oakley logo on bridge). Its one of the styles that complimets the wearer alot more than the glases! hahah! you know what I mean =P Thats why I love these! the downside is the side sight coverag you really have to move your head to take a look at stuff beside you. Not very good when you drive a motorcycle or something like that. The material is very good exept for the bronse oakley logos that come off over time.... they turn silver so its okay =P

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: VR50 to Brown Transition

This frame just looks goofy indoors. I would feel very awkward walking around indoors when they are VR50. They also do not change very well inside the car. They lack ear socks and nose pieces make them hard to use for sports. But they still are very durable and good glasses.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Ti Clear
My long seach is finally over. This pair of MD's rivals the Tribal as my all-time favorite. Released as a Japan Exclusive in 2004, this model is not easy to come by. The Ti Iridium lenses provide minimal comfort in bright light situations but that doesn't stop them from being cool. I wear these on overcast days and they look sharp. I would highly recommed this model if you want something that sets you apart, but still has the comfort and fit of the Monster Dog range.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: DEEP BLUE POLARIZED
These are sweet. They have the DEEP BLUE POLARIZED lens that has a blue iridium coating that has blue/purple colors. Kinda like ichiro blue. Good secure fit. Not suited if you have a small head but medium and large heads will be perfect. Added bonus is the fact that these are polarized.

Frame: Crystal Black
Lens: Black Iridium
Picked these up Summer of 2006. Great glasses, but do not work well for cycling with a helmet, or at least the few I own. I wear these mainly on the water in the kayak with the oakley water/oil resistant treatment. Great for the glare of the water, without being polarized. The crystal frame still lets a little bit of light through, but not enough to make a noticable difference. Great coverage on the face, and unique looks.

Frame: Polished Black, Navy
Lens: Titanium Clear, Grey

These have a nice snug fit on me, and they seem pretty light compared to my usual juliets. They have a great look to them, might look a little goofy on me, but I still like them.

Polished Black/Ti Clear is a Japanese Exclusive, and while I'm really happy I was able to track them down, I really wish the Ti Clear lens was a little clearer. They actually have a half decent titanium mirror on them and especially indoors, even though any blocking of light is pretty much unnoticeable on your side of the lenses, anyone looking at you would definitely label them as sunglasses rather than clear lenses, which is what I hoped they were. Still really cool looking though.

The Navy frame from the navy / pink / blue fluoro camo pack is really cool, its a dark translucent blue, and the pink camo icon looks great. Grey lens actually isn't quite as boring as I thought, it seems to increase contrast a bit rather than being completely neutral...

Tick -
Frame:Tortoise
Lens: Gold Iridium
What a cool looking design. Big & chunky but with fluid lines. The frame really blocks outside light so the lenses look even clearer. The stretched ellipse Icon looks a little out of place. I think, given the large earstems, they could have put a larger, unstretched Icon on there & it would've looked better.

Frame: Monster Dog
Lens: Black Iridium

I wanted the Monster Dogs so i had a tougher pair of glasses, and these fit the bill. I choose the Ducati version as I prefer the Black Iridium lens as I like things in normal shades of color. And the Ducati's were the only ones with polished black Frame and Black iridium lens. Overall very happy and find them very comfortable. Only down side is a loss of side periferal vision, but you get used to it.

Frame: Night Camo
Lens: Grey

These are a fantastic pair of sunnies, I see almost every Oakley fnatic wearing these and they're quite noticable with the big logos on the side. I wasn't really a fan of Frogskins which had no unobtanium, Fives looked a bit cheap for me even though i had looked at them at one point. Best O Matter frame for me and feels great too.

Frame: cinder red
Lens: black iridium
the monster dogs are a super comfortable frame. the curves, line and size of the frame makes the person wearing them look evil. this is a frame that i picture on a bodyguard or bouncer.
the cinder red is quickly becoming my favorite frame color. inside it looks like a simple dark frame, but when the sunlight hits it, they just sparkle. Like bass boat sparkle.
I know many folks may still be uncomfortable wearing a bigger style, but when you get over it pick up some 'dogs!

i had been wanting the night camo frame ever since i bought my white camo dogs. i have just been putting it off so when a member sold me some Bronze polar lenses i knew it was time to get them.

Frame: Fluoro Camo Charcoal
Lens: Grey

This frame color is very cool. It reminds me of primer, but with a glossy finish. From what I can tell, the O-Matter is not painted, but rather it is molded in this color. Like all MD's, the large frame offers good coverage while holding tight to your head. While the Grey lens is a bit boring, it is probably the best match for the Charcoal frame.

Frame: Tribal

I'm really liking these Tribal Monster Dogs. The slate iridium is perfect for November Sun. I'll probably buy a set of Titanium replacement lenses for brighter conditions. The tribal pattern is sharp not fuzzy like one member asked about. These are bad ass!

Frame: Tribal
Lens: Slate Iridium
It's been a little while since a new release has created this much anticipation among the members here. I almost feel bad posting a review - ALMOST! How exclusive these Tribal Dogs are is hard to say since the guy at Tokyo HQ seems to think they are a Japanese Exclusive. We know that's not the case, but it still remains to be seen at this point if they will be launched globally. Be that as it may, these MD's are a true piece of design art. I just hope they don't start making a Tribal frame in every other model. The exclusivity of this frame adds to the allure and mystique of this particular Monster Dog. The slate iridium lenses are a nice departure from the norm. Useful in a wide variety of lighting conditions. This is bound to be a valuable collector's item and I highly recommend Lex gets them!

my second fave out of all the camo pack MDs
i love crystal frames and this is a great one, like a non frosted version of the rootbeer frame this looks great when the light hits it and ofcourse youve got the cool orange camo icon to complete the look.
just a shame it has to come with the standard grey lens, would look great with a gold lens.

i was a bit worried about a bright white MD but these are alot nicer than they would be cos of the awesome bright green camo icon, which really makes these alot more interesting.

I've always liked the style, but none of the frame colors really grabbed me until now. Santa has brought me to the Monster Dog family and I love the new frame color! The brown fade is simply awesome, one of the reasons I was tempted towards the Doggle with the black fade. A great fit, full coverage and a sic look to match!
EastCoast -
Frame: Ducati, Night Camo, Amber
Lens: Black Iridium, Grey, Bronze Polarized
Tried these on. I was very wary given they have no unobtanium. I was very much surprised; the first thing I noticed was how robust they felt. They also fit well, which is a rarity given my fat nose bridge. Excellent coverage and aesthetics. The Camo frames at $150 CAN are a relative steal - the Dogs are an 'entry-level' pair that is right up with the best of them.

I would like to see more Iridium options. All in all, my picks are the Night Camos; the Bronze / Ti; and the Dukes. Definitely on my wishlist.

Frame: 10W40
Lens: Bronze
Found these in Japan and picked them up for two reasons. First reason: not a widely released combo. Second reason: love the name of the frame. The 10W40 frame looks exactly like that: pure gold motor oil. Somewhat similar to the Whiskey frame but darker in tones. The Bronze lens is sufficient, but not overwhelming.

Frame: Fluoro Camo Olive
Lens: Grey

I always thought MD's were too big for me, but after trying them on a few more times, I reconsidered. They are still much bigger than what I'm accustomed to wearing, but I like the thorough coverage. The aggressive but not-too-over-the-top styling speaks for itself. Surprisingly lightweight for the size of the frame.

Since Fluoro Camo Packs started showing up on eBay, I figured I should try my luck. I ended up getting one for much less than many Monster Dogs sell for alone. Plus, the limited edition nature of the Camo Packs makes these MD's a bit more special.

The translucent Olive frame is a great shade of drab green. Takes me back to the days when grunge was all the rage. The camo icons are a neat touch to tie in the pattern used for the other Camo Pack items.

It's too bad these were only offered with Grey lenses. Grey is a fine tint and goes well with the frame, but I think Persimmon would have looked great with the orange camo accents.
Oak -
Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Ruby

Nice combo, but the Ruby's a far cry from what it used to be when it was first introduced on the Juliet. It's not quite red, but it's not quite fire either. It's in between but loses marks because of it. Still very cool glasses, though.

Wow, when I first saw these I really though they would not be what I wanted. I was interested in the unknown but then I tried these on and realized that these are like the big brother to the unknown.

It's hard not to get swept up in the hype of the MD's. Lots of interesting color combos and a nice fit. I look forward to picking up a few more pairs down the road. The camo models are particularly interesting.

Frame: White Camo
Lens: Grey

Probably the best deal of any Oakley. I LOVE the way they look although I'd prefer a black iridium lense over the grey. If I am on the lake or rock climbing I usually wear these glasses. I get a lot of compliments on them... OVerall, big thumbs up. They'd be a 5 if I could get a camo finish with a different lense. The grey isn't bad just not as good as others.
dan-E -
Frame: Brown Tortoise
Lens: Bronze

A guy I know owns this pair and let me try them on for a bit. I was never really interested in the either of the Monster frames but I found these surprisingly well designed. Obviously designed for larger skulls but they fit well and despite the bulk, aren't heavy at all. The tortiose frame is well finished and the Bronze lenses are a good all-around lens.

Frame: any
Lens: any

Pros: Blocks the sun from all angles, fits like a glove, doesn't fog up, looks good (very popular model). Thick protruding frame will probably protect the lenses should you drop these.

Cons: Bottom of the frame is way too thick and visible when wearing them. If your downward field of vision is important then don't buy these.

My favorite frame. Putting on this frame feel like home. I have a rather big head, not humongus by any means ;) and the Monster Dog just locks unto my skull. Great! My only trouble with the dogs is the lack a lenscolours, it seems Oakley is playing it safe in that respect, but the Monster Dog is a classic and some wicked new lense colours would be great! The variety of framecolours is already there.

This is one of the most awesome pairs of Oakleys I have. The Tribal frame is so so def. It just looks so cool and its very unique. It works really well with the slate iridium lenses.

Frame: 10w40

I've worn these once or twice but I found that in sunny conditions they made everything way too bright and yellow! The sun shines through the frame and the bronze lenses aren't dark enough for me. 10w40 is a nice colour to look at though!

Frame: Crystal Black
Lens: Black Iridium

Like most of the reviews say, they provide great coverage and look cool, too. I don't usually like to buy glasses that touch my cheek bones, but this one I could tolerate. I wear a 7 & 3/8 baseball cap size, and these Monster Dogs fit just fine on me. My only complaint is that the ear stems are rather thick, and since my ears are quite streamlined close to the sides of my head and do not flare out like Will Smith or Howdy Doody, they tend to hurt the top and behind of my ears after long periods of wearing. Overall, though, I still give these shades four out of five stars.
Dann -
Frame: White Camo

I really didn't like these when they came out. I thought they were a bit too big. Little did I know later on, there would be plenty bigger. Finally getting on over half off, I picked up the white camo, and they are very nice after all.

Frame: Tribal
Lens: Slate Iridium
Tribal w/ Slate is the best color scheme in the Monster Dog lineup,IMHO. Other than the two camo schemes for M.D., these are the ones that I had to get; The Holy Grail of M.D.'s! The combination of the tribal graphics and the slate iridium lens is perfect. I may consider adding a titanium lens for a one off custom but I think it may have too much silver as opposed to the subdue hues of the slate lens. Their was some discussion regarding this version being released in the U.S. market, but whatever the case, get a pair for your collection, I highly recommend.

I love these. I love wearing them. The contrast between the big, thick frames & the clear lenses really makes them stand out. I also think it enhances the Iridium coating on the Ti Clear lenses.

Rick -
Frame: Matte Black
Lens: -Red Iridium
Custom combo I picked up online. The -Red lens is a much more practical option than the Ruby Clear and I have had no problems with ghosting or crazy reflections to date. It has the appearance of the +Red Iridium but obviously not as intense since it has a clear base. The allow others to see your eyes, but the sheen put across by the +Red Iridium coating gives it a neat effect. Much more interesting that a Ti Clear, but about as effective in the bright sun. The Mattle Black frame allows the lenses to be the star here by the fact they are subtle as compared to a flashy polished black. Worth picking up if you can find them.
Rick -
Frame: Cinder Red
Lens: Ti Clear
One of several possible combinations of MD's made possible through Oakley's new O-Custom program (formerly known as: OCE). The Cinder Red frame looks quite dark, but with the addition of the Ti Clears, the red metallic finish of the Cinder comes through a little bit more than in the Oil Drum I also own. This pair was my 100th pair of Oakleys that turned out to be a joint project between myself and Dann "The Man" Thombs. We had "Century Club" etched in the lens for an extra charge of $15. I think it is a great combo and I highly recommend it becomes the offical O-Review Century Pair. It's just that cool.
Rick -
Frame: Fluoro Camo Navy / Pink / Blue/Grey
Lens: gray
I was not overly impressed with this combo. The Navy frame is pretty mundane and the only thing that really turned me onto this one was the price (great deal online) and the unique splatter-styled icons. In retrospect, I should have gone with something more interesting. That said, the Monster Dog is a favorite of mine and this pair, like all my MD's, does get walked quite a bit. These might become a workhorse for me on days when I have plenty of work to do in the yard or something. Definitely not a showcase model that requries pampering.
Rick -
Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Black Gradient
I've been seeing a few of these for sale in Japan. Kind of cool to see a gradient lens in a Monster Dog. I don't know if I would consider the Monster Dog to be a fashion model, although with a dramatic gradient such as the Black/Clear, this MD takes on a bit of a pretty boy persona. I am guessing this was supposed to be a global release, yet the only place I've heard of it being available is Japan, so I guess we could say it is a Japan Exclusive until we hear otherwise.

These are OCE. They have Crystal black frame with fire iridium lens and red anodized icon. They look killer. Extremely light and have great eye coverage. I have a medium size head and they fit well. I would not try monster dogs if you have a narrow head or small head. I was hesitant about them because I have always had glasses with unob. earsocks. You do not need them with Monster dogs, they seem to grab hold of your head and not let go.

These are one the most comfortable o-matter frames that I own. At first glance the monster dog looks like a pair of motorcycle goggles but I love the big frame and aggressive styling. I have a large head (hat size 7.5) and these fit very nice. The metallic frame looks great in the sunlight with a nice "bling" effect. The lens is technically fire however looks more ruby than fire. A great color combo and the chrome icons real set off the entire frame.

Again, Oakley has created an icon for themselves. Popular yes, because they can look good on so many people. Looks great on my oversize head. I was hesitant to buy a pair of plastic frames after obsessing over the X-metals, but I'm so glad I did. The quality is very high. Thanks to the other Members of the Review who posted pics of their custom MD's with +Red lenses... once I saw them, I had to have them! The combination looks killer!

Frame: Brown Tortoise
Lens: Bronze

This is where the addiction began. I have them for about 6 years now and they are still like new, except the Oakley logo on the nose bridge who disappeared and a scratch on the left lens that I did a month after I got them (ARGH !). Considering that they were my only glasses during a year, I've abused them a lot and they have gone in swimming pools, at the beach, on the bike and have globally been worn on a daily basis.

These are big glasses with a huge coverage. The O-Matter keeps that big frame in a good weight range.

The brown tortoise color is classic and gives a nice light transmission through the matter.
The gold Icons stand out from the frame.

The bronze lens is perfectly matching the frame and is perfect for medium light conditions. Maybe the Gold Iridium lens would have been a better choice to match the gold icons.

The only negative point would be the lack of unobtainium piece that can be felt when doing sport with them. But this is not really what they are done for, do they ?

At first glance I was not a fan of these. I felt as if they were way too big for me and the lack of Unobtainium was a drawback. I got a pair for real cheap and was like if I don't like them I'll give them away. I'm glad I kept them. They fit great especially when I have to wear them for long periods of time. I also found that they didn't need the Unobtainium when I played basketball in them and the stayed on like a champ. Im sure I'll pick up another pair before they get discontinued.

I always considered the monster dog to be the older brother of the splice,but they're so much more than that.Their shape is so aggressive and dominant,that looks almost like a fist,being smooth and elegant at the same time.It's muscular,sharp because of the hammerfang pattern which was first relased in 2003,but also smooth because of the shape of the lenses,definitely courtesy of the splice,which is so dynamic.It's got to be the best lens shape ever,and although I do like the teardropped lenses,this one is a very hard competitor.But the good stuff,just doesn't end there.The monster dog has huge coverage.Forget everything you knew,from the smaller framed glasses such as the minute,you've got all the coverage you can need here.And the fit is as if it was made for me.Although there is no unobtainium at all,these things grip on your head and just become one,without any squeeze whatsoever.It's no coincidence that the monster dogs are around for over than 9 years,and I would really like to see some new colorways.Full five stars without a question at all!

Lens: Black Iridium

My first pair of Oakleys is a Monster Dog and it was given to me by a friend when I visited Bangkok in 12 December 2012. Back then I did not know how highly regarded Oakley sunglasses were so I did not take extra care of my Monster Dog and wore it practically wherever I go or whatever I am doing - be it driving, or running, our trail walking, or mountain biking, or travelling, or island hopping, or kayaking, or going to the office. To say that my Monster Dog was subjected to abuse is an understatement.

One thing I noticed, however, was that no matter how many times my Monster Dog was dropped, or accidentally thrown, or hit by branches, or fell in sea water, it remained intact and robust and it still fits snugly into my face all these years. Despite the few scratches it had on its lens, I still opted to use it because of its perfect fit and perfect view - my field of observation is wide enough that I can covertly watch someone or something without turning my head.

Lately (early 2015), I met new friends who introduced me to other Oakley sunglasses and who taught me options in replacing the lenses of my Monster Dog so I decided to get a pair of 24K Gold Polarized and retire the weary battle scarred Black Iridium of my Monster Dog. I also acquired a few other Oakley Sunglasses but my Monster Dog remains as the dearest to me.

Weight 33 gm. I'm an Asian (ie. flat faced) and have a big head (59 cm circumference). These Oakleys angle back further at the ears, so that they are less likely to slip off, even if they don't have rubber earsocks. They have great sun coverage with the lenses and "monster dog" is an name for these sunglasses because they really are quite aggressive and make a statement. If you can score the black or brown fade versions, you can easily remove the colour to make yourself a wicked pair of clear Monster Dogs. Forget about using a toothbrush and detergent. Use non acetone based nail polish and you can remove all the paint without destroying the frames. Makes sure you remove the lenses first!!! I only give them 3 stars because they don't sit as securely as most Oakleys and they also aren't as comfortable to wear, but they really are a classic shape.

spectacular artwork, and great use of colour.
if only more were named after animals then we could have a whole range of cool boxes.

Awesome artwork. After the demise of the b&w boxes, some models came out with the generic yellow boxes, but others (sometimes after originally coming out with the yellow) came with custom artwork. The monster dog logo is something fierce and really makes a nice display piece in of itself.

nice drawings, they did a t shirt with the same design , so maybe there is more to come

There should be more designs like this. So you can display the boxes too.

Agree with Dann here, this has to be one of the coolest boxes. I don't own a pair of Dogs myself, but mum does, so I have taken possession of the box on a permanent basis. Really cool looking, brilliant design.

Really cool design for this box, glad it got is own design instead of a generic one. Love to put 2 on top of each other so it forms a complete Monster Dog logo.

The only box I love better is the Monster Doggle one, even tough, the glasses inside those are something else...
TERRORISM -
This box deserves five stars simply because it epitomizes Oakley's "no-holds-barred" attitude. The graphic of an oversized bulldog with huge teeth and a spiked collar match the product name perfectly. Even the blocked logo on the top edge looks fantastic in its red hue.

My favorite Oakley box ever. The design is great and it just screams Oakley.

They did a great number on this box it suites the glasses well, and it’s a big change form the generic boxes, a matching micro bag would have been great

Now with Ice, Fire and Ti Clear options - makes MD replacement lenses a great alternative to creating your own customs. Best of all, the MD is one of the easier styles to swap lenses in and out.
jumpman73 -
There are a very large variety of color options of lenses for the Monster Dog available now. It is a very nice way to mix and match for unique styles. I was very happy that Oakley made Ti Clears for the MD's. It is also fairly easy to change out the lenses as well.

RUBY lens.
I was lucky and ended up getting a RUBY lens that is similar to earlier batches. They have lots of dark red and very, very little orange and no yellow. When looking through the lenses they are a blueish hue. They are gorgeous. Easy to swap out the lenses and change the look of you DOGS.

its hard for me to say if they are good sunglass or not, because they are my first real sunglass, but there's some things that I don't like about, first even if they are big, I think the frame is not covering equally my eyes, they are to high covering my eyebrow but not enough under my eyes I see too much the frame at the beginning of my eyes, and its quite "tiring" I always see a piece of frame when I look down. but otherwise the look is nice if you like bold things, they are comfortable and doesn't seem to fall from my nose, the lenses are good, they offer a nice protection, at first glance I thought they were to clear to protect but I was wrong they offer something like 12 or 13 % of light transmission, pretty good I think, and they got on both side a gold metal Oakley sign, that gives a sharp goddamn looking. ill post a picture soon.

I bought these shades just to see how much "bigger" they were to the Monster Dog shades. I have a big head and the monster dogs fit me perfectly as well as Juliet and Straight Jackets. I figured that the Monster Doggle will fit just as good with a little more lens above and below the eye. Note to all consumers - Make sure you try these shades on 1st before buying. These shades "almost" look like knock off Oakley's. They are HUGE! On the website, the Monster Doggle are located in the "Over the Top" section. No Guff - These shades are definitely over the top. I can't seem to want to get rid of them though....but they are my least favourite shades. When I put them on, I kinda look like Bono in his Zoo TV/Achtung Baby days. Yet they are much more dramatic that the styling of them looks more simplistic than futuristic. Rock star shades! Perhaps if I were a woman they would be as stylish as the oversized Versace or Chanel shades. Gold iridium is sweet...but I like neutral transmission shades. I am afraid to wear them and have people laugh at me. Do not upgrade from the Monster Dog to the Monster Doggle. Trust Me.

I just got mine today and have to say that I am a bit unsure of them. I wanted some huge sunglasses, and these definitely fit the bill, but somehow, they seem a bit narrow for the overall size. The lenses are great as they are quite dark and suited for bright sunlight, but even in not so bright conditions, they still transmit enough light so you don't feel like you're going to walk in to a wall or something (this might have to do with the clarity).

These are dope. More intricate curves than many Oakleys, and they only pair I know of that has the Icon the exact same colour as the frame. These would be junk with a Grey lens or a bridge logo, but as it stands they are really cool. Yes they are big, that's the point. They are hefty and well-priced, so go on and get them. The best pairs along with this are the Black Fade and the Grey Polarized. More and more people will warm up to these, Oakley please keep the colours coming.

The Monster Doggle is HUGE in Japan. It's really odd, but I see more of these than any other Oakley style. I happen to disagree with the design style of this model and was not upset to hear it had been discontinued. They may appeal to people who like to push the style envelope, but they don't do a damn thing for me. They didn't even look good on my wife when she tried them and she loves her Scripts which are also large. Just a bad idea from the start.

Call me insane, but I prefer these over the Juliets. I happen to really like my Juliets and they were my favorite until I got a pair of Monster Doggles. One strange thing is, after trying on the Monster Dogs, I thought they were too large, so I didn't bother trying on the Monster Doggles which are a little larger. Apparently, thats not how these things actually work. I'm glad I eventually tried these on because The Monster Doggles fit and look much better. They grow on me more each day.

Yes, they're big and look fairly silly, but they're in your face and no one can miss them, which can only be a good thing when there's two hefty O icons on either side! Seriously, though they're far too big for me personally, they're designed well, look nice, but you have to have a face that will suit them.

Initially I was fondly reminded of my Trenchcoats when I tried these on. Plus the black fade was a sweet frame color. I really wanted a pair ... luckily I didn't buy right away. After some time and seing plenty of Oakley marketing photos showing women in the Doggles, it finally sank in that these were simply not ment for mere men. So for those of you that are seeking the large fashion glasses, I urge you to get a fine pair of Doggles.

These aren't the pair of Oakleys you want if you want to travel incognito. I tried on the White frames and I looked quite silly but even the Matte Black frames are going to stand out. Clearly a fashion frame to go with the "giant sunglasses" trend. Couple of good things: you're not going to see any sunlight sneak in from any angle and the huge icon makes it clear that you're sporting the "O."

I had been on the fence about these when they came out, thinking they were just too darn big for my mellon. I first bought a pair of Monster Dogs and then realized that the Doggles were probably BETTER suited to my head, lol. I finally pulled the trigger on a pair of them at a vault store (my luck I decide to get a pair and they are being discontinued!) These have actually made it into my regular rotation of glasses that I keep in the car and are now my new favorite pair. I really like the coverage, very similar to my old Trenchcoat. I only wish they released it in a Cinder Red / Blood colorway. Now I'm off to search for another pair!

These are a huge pair of shades, but for the right face/head they look the part. I can't imagine buying these new, but as a good used pair at a cheap price, I think they're a welcome addition to the collection.

They provide full eye coverage, even on my huge head. The frames are a little bulky, but not overly heavy. I can't say these are for everyone...but I think most Oakley fans would enjoy at least trying them on.

I bought these frames after seeing a picture on flikr of someone who "cleared" one up. The paint on his black fade was coming off and he took some ACETONE FREE nail polish remover and took all the black paint off...they looked SWEET. I bought some just to do that to them. The monster dogs that are fades will also clear up...pretty sweet. They are LARGE, but if you're wearing a hat, it looks awesome. Nice coverage and low light transmission. I'm looking to buy some more doggles and dogs that have FADE on them and clean them up to be clear. ONE of a kind in my neck of the woods!

I got these by accident, ebay with a wrong description and bad picture. They are kinda cool, but they just look goofy on me. At least with the grey lenses they do. You can see my eyes and that just makes the large size look wierd. I would like to custom cut some +Red lenses for these, paint the icons red, and see what happens. Even if they still don't look right on me, they will display really well that way.

I just got my first pair today. I bought the white/black and the black/gold at the same time. I think they look pretty goofy on me, but I thought the same about the Trenchcoat, Hijinx, and Eyepatch, as well. I still think the white Hijinx look weird on me, but the darker framed Hijinx seem to work well on my face. I'm hoping that's the case with the Doggle. As it stands, I haven't worn them in public yet, but I'm looking forward to peoples' reactions...

UPDATE: I got the Black/Gold pair today. I like them much more than the white pair. This is definitely a frame that lends itself to a darker color.

Very good clarity and field of vision, though colors will look somewhat distorted due to the amber effect that looking through the bronze lenses will produce. Lenses are taller than Monster Dog, but not wider. At one time I owned both the Dog and the Doggle, and I prefer the Dog's look & fit.

I never thought twice about these, thinking they were basically a Monster Dog "S". I was so wrong. These remind me of a great combo of Monster Dogs and Canteens. The lenses, as all fanatics know, are spectacular. While marked as red, they appear blue to look through, and from the outside reflect anything in site.

The frames are translucent, but not as see through as the brown smoke frames. The weight and fit are near perfect. The coverage is excellent...and I highly recommend these as an addition to anyone's collection.

The love child of a Monster Dog and a Fat Cat, at least in my humble opinion. Scale down the MD just a bit and square off the lenses like FC, and you get Monster Pup. The lenses offer great coverage and the frame, like most O-Matter, is very lightweight. The small-ish icons on the earstems are quite understated compared to the huge ones on MD. It is nice to see Oakley offering more scaled-down versions of popular frames to fit the smaller-faced among us.
kingphilbert -
Frame: Olive Tort
Lens: Dark Grey

A little bit of old. A little bit of new. All fantastic. I was skeptical at first not just wanting an identical scaled down MD, but also not wanting a completely restyled MD. Oakley found the perfect plane for existance in combining the best and most aggressive elements of the MD and the sleekest, smoothest parts of the "Gascan" style taking the MD into the next generation of Oakley styling. The fit is great and coverage reamians top notch. All in all the style is only fractions smaller making a compact force to be reckonded with.

Finally tried al the monster pups on a week ago. They are very similar to the Gascan S, The are a little more squared than the original monster dogs. They fit pretty good.

My only drawback is that they once again put the grey lens in the matte black frame, when they shold really put a black iridium lens in it.

I love that it's smaller frame fits really good on my face, it actually hugs around perfectly that there's ZERO light coming in on the sides. It's very light weight, and has a great aggressive look. Needless to say I bought it.

A fairly large frame, even though it's smaller than the Monster Dogs. I live in a town of 100,000, and the Sunglass Hut is the only place to get Oakleys and they still don't have the Pups, so I had to order online. My only complaint is that the green frame is not very well represented on the website. It's darker than shown online, and the mottled pattern really doesn't show up unless they're off your face and there is a light source behind them. Still, the fit is great, and they don't completely dominate my thin face. If I had it to do over again, I'd probably buy the Five 3.0s in green, but these are still great and very unique.

I was skeptical about getting the larger glasses, especially since I don't have a very broad face. I was surprised at how well they fit me, though. The green is subtle (much more than the file pictures), but I actually prefer the darker tone of the real product. The lens are nothing special (for Oakley anyway), but still provide crystal clear vision. My only complaint would be that they do allow light to creep in under the bottom of the frames, but overall an enjoyalbe product.

Frame: Rust Oakley Text
Lens: VR28 Black Iridium & RX Black Iridium Polarized

I was itching to get a pair of nice sunglasses, beign tired of the added weight of clip-ons and wanting some protection from the sun.

The frame is a lot darker than what is shown on the website. Once you wear them, they are very dark with faint traces of reddish brown light shining through. The text is mostly invisible once on your head. I prefer this color much more to the Polished Rootbeer which is too brown for my tastes.

The optics are fantastic on both sets of lenses. The VR28 looks like it has better definition, but that might be the contact lenses vs RX lenses difference.

The polarizing effect on the RX Black Iridium is not all that bad. Being used to the effect that you get with good clip-ons, it is a lot more subtle.

The coverage is excellent I have a much larger field of view and no distortion (can be an issue with RX), it's almost if I was not wearing glasses at all. They hold very well on your head, even with lots of sweat.

Seeing the reviews here, I was afraid that the Black Iridium lens might have been too dark but I find it is just right for me. The shape is a lot more subdued than most Oakleys but still have an outstanding design. I like them a lot.

Hands down, I give the monster pups a 5 star rating. Fits Asian faces well, very snugly, no need for an Asian fit version. A pair of wraparounds that provide the tightest fit, without being uncomfortable, and just what I need in a pair of sunglasses. It's good for small to medium faces.

The bronze lenses are a tad see-through for me. If mine were a white, with gold icons with blue iridium lenses... it would be perfect....

When the Monster Dog was first released. I really liked the look and feel of the frame. Too bad those were way too big for my head.
Thankfully there came the Monster Pup!
It's a good lightweight frame with a little bit of attitude. The Matte Black makes gives it a stealth look and, because it was possible with OCE, you have to go with Pink Iridium. It just looks so cool! The matte finish of the frame makes the pink lenses pop out of their orbitals!

Frame: Rust Text
Lens: VR28® Black Iridium®

I'm giving my second review of the Monster Pup cos I got a new one (I sold away the previous). I got this for the lenses. The rust text frame matches the VR28 BI lenses perfectly. My eyes are definitely less visible through these lenses than the previous pair with bronze. I wish the icons were of a brighter metal shade though, instead of gunmetal, as they blend in too well with the rust text frame and no one really knows you're wearing an Oakley. A great lightweight frame with a look that's flexible enough for use with almost any attire (except maybe a big suit).

On a side note, I noticed a bit of difference between this and my previous pair of Monster Pups. The previous pair (Pol Rootbeer/Bronze) had the word 'sample' etched into the inside of the left earstem (bought them online, they were authentic though). Not sure if Oakley changed the dimensions along the way by Oakley but I felt the first was more aggressive, and angular, at the lens area; with this version, the hard edges have been softened a little. I prefer the more aggressive hard edges, please, Oakley.

really liking this pair a lot. The pups are slightly smaller than the monster dogs but still have the awesome style that is distinctive to the dogs.

You know, I hadn't pulled this pair out in a while, but I have to say that this may be one of my most underrated pairs. I forgot just how good these fit and look on my face. Sure, I'll wear the occasional Gascan or Monster Dog like everyone else, but the Pup is a nice alternative for those of us who don't have huge faces. The lines are smooth, they're a little more "edgy" looking than the MD, and hardly anyone seems to be wearing them. If you have issues with Gascan or Monster Dog looking stupid on you because you have a bit of a smaller face, these may be your pair. Highly functional, highly recommended.

When these came out, the Monster Dog was not looked on as the larger beast it once was. However smaller versions of common models were becoming popular. The fit is a bit tighter, and coverage is not as full. They are still comfortable, but some additional color choices would have been nice.

I really like the Monster Pup as a no-nonsense pair. If I want to wear something with aggressive lines but isn't going to draw much attention, I feel these fit the bill. They are a smaller and more boxed version of the Monster Dog. I have a smaller profile and the fit on these is nearly perfect. I get a slight pinching behind my ears after several hours of wear though.

The VR28 Black Iridium is a great all around lens and the text styling on the frame is a subtle design element that could easily go unnoticed, or start up a conversation.

Normally,I wouldn't buy anything with the new squared mentality that oakley has produced.You see,I'm the oakley old fashioned type of collector.I'd rather wear over the tops all the time,than even take a glance at newer models such as the Hijinx,even though every now and then I find myself flirting with the gascans intensively.However,when it comes to the monster pups,I just can say no.Not only because they are the descendants of the monster dog,but because there has never been any other implementation of the squarish style,that is so succesful.They are so,but so agressive.The rest of the square,especially frogskins line,are usually designs that are gentle and smooth,with the exception of the canteen of course.Nice smooth elegant lines,which after a few hours you remember pretty much nothing I say.But these ones,noooooooooooooo!!!!!While the earstems follow the monster dog hammerfang-rounder I should say-,pattern,the orbitals are as square,steep and agreesive as it can be.The nice line of exceeding edges under the lenses,which we find in xx,mag switch,valve etc,is always present,and the orbitals have so much sculpture on them,that even the pit boss,is relative poor in that field compared.
On the fit side,they hold onto the head like crazy,and having the monster dogs as well,I couldn't believe that there is a pair tighter that those,and the dual cam hinges work very well.You see,they've got everything on that issue.One can't believe that this is a lower budget pair of sunglasses.The coverage is unbelievable considering that they are supposed to be a downsized edition of the MD.I may not like the new designs,but I have to admit that their coverage is superior though.As for the colorways,they've got all the classic colours and lenses.One pair that I would like to point out though,is the rust/oakley text.Since I've got the rust edition of the MD,I think that the oakley text is making the frame a lot better.You see the rust color is somewhat mild,considering that the pups have,less than the monster dog,but still enough curves,and just a plain rust color would make them lose their edge.And of course the brown smoke frame is impressive and exotic,although it shines very bright,and sometimes this fact may be bothering.The pups are just great,and no matter how much I miss a new fmj model,these ones were really successful.

Frame: Rust Oakley Text
Lens: VR28 Black Iridium

I bought these because I thought they would fit the Asian Profile, and I was in love with how the frame looked. Well, they were decent but not perfect, so I altered them a little to fit my face perfectly. The frame is very unique. I've never seen anything like it before. The Vr28 is still an all time favorite.

Now here is where I became a little picky. I think that I have a small-medium sized head and these were still actually a little large on my face. To put this in perspective, the Straight Jackets cover my eyebrows and meets the bottom of my cheek level. Overall though, the frame is very comfortable and light weight. I love the clear brown frames (I own a Root Beer pair of Flak Jackets and a Brown Smoke pair of Canteens. The Canteens are actually pretty similar to these in the front. They are aggressive and edgy, but not over the top.
They are great, but for those with a smaller nose, I would recommend trying them on. I wasn't able to...

My most prized pair is my two ktoishhiswid? Hijinx because of their rarity. However, I am a very big fan of the Oil Rig and love my custom Oil Rigs, I have ten of them. I also am a big fan of my new Eyepatch with violet iridium lenses. It's really hard to say !. The new Jupiter Camo Fuel cell is also awesome LOL!

Smaller sibling of the monster dogs, these have a more "streamlined" look, yet it still has a organic look to them. I would say design-wise they are in mix between gascan and monster dogs. If X-metal juliets existed in an O-matter form, I'd say these come close demsnion-wise (lens size very similar).

These frames are very under-rated frames IMO. They have a good wrap, are lightweight, and have that oakley touch to them. I have the matte black frames and switch between ruby iridium and grey lenses. They feel like straight jackets minus the unobtanium nose and earstems.

Wish oakley still made these. I wanted sport wrap sunnies without the unobtanium (Already have M frames and radars, and I know those are rimless-bottom frames)....but while I was deciding between flak jackets and the new straight jacket, I did not like having to repalce unobtanium over time, so I wanted sport sunnies without them. These fit what I wanted!

This is becoming one of my favorite pairs of O Matters. The black and pink combination looks amazing. The pink iridium always gets compliments. This pair fits so well I couldn't believe it.

Frame: Polished black
Lens: Pink Iridium

At one point, I had two of these. I thought they would fit me well, but how wrong was I. The pups are actually quite big for my head and although I can wear Gascan S and Flak Jackets comfortably, I seem to have fitting issues when it comes to the pup frames. The wrap is superb but it's too close and fogs up too easily when it's cold. I can't understand why Oakley coats the inner side of some of their lenses. When used at night, the inner iridium coating ghost up and the reflection is really bad if you use them for night driving. That's all for the negatives. I must say that the only thing I like about this particular model is the polished black frame with pink iridium lens. the color combination just gives you the killer looks. Aesthetically, it scores well, but functionality is poor. Don't get me wrong, I'm an Oakley collector and I see this one fits well in the display cabinet but not in the real world.

I love the look of the Olive Tortoise frame. It looks better in person than online since it looks almost like a dark greyish color. The look is very high fashion and almost has an old-school retro styling, playing with the classic aviator shape. I'm glad the second generation came with the Square O logos because it was hard to tell if the Stretchline versions were Oakleys from far away.

Definitely a good homage to the Aviator style with O matter. These look like sunglasses that you would find at Urban Outfitters or some fashion forward hipster store. I find that it looks best on medium shaggy haired (Ashton Kutcher type) or longer haired people (a la Shaun White). It also fits very well with flatter faces (ie Asian or African American profiles).

Upon seeing these online, etc I hated them. After trying on a pair in person, I had to have some. They are extremely "cool", very fashion oriented. I like how they have a little less wrap than a hijinx, etc. Makes them much more "noticeable" and even make the normally toned down polished black, etc "loud". A great take on trendy sunglasses, very Oakley, without sacrificing any style, etc...the Barras series is even sweeter!

I never really liked the Montefrio. I tried on the Olive Tortoise version at my local Sunglass Hut, and I thought I looked like a bouncer in Las Vegas in the late 70's. Meh. I got the urge to buy something unique, and I remembered the Wood Grain Frogskins. I hate FSs, and I remembered that the finish was originally on the Montefrio. I found a pair on eBay for $60, so I got them. The colorway has a lot to do with the look. I hated the other colors, but the WG is pretty awesome. I can easily see this pair becoming part of the regular rotation. Cheap+unique+not bad looking=Must Have.

Frame: Polished Black Pinstripe

I've always been thinking about buying a pair of these. I was hesitant due to the style and fit, especially being Asian. Although these are not my favorites, they fit me pretty well and look decent on me. I couldn't say no to a this pair, which was on sale for only $39 at the local vault. I'm also not a huge fan of the Grey, but I suppose they are classic. I wouldn't recommend these for driving though. It's nice to have something different in my collection though. The lens contour kind of reminds me of the old crosshairs, but overall, nothing really special. The pinstripes are a nice touch though.
Jon -

I owned a pair of these before and wasn't the biggest fan of them. The colors were boring and did not interest me at all. The fit wasn't amazing either, but since I am Asian, they actually sit rather well. Now, according to different people, these actually look somewhat decent on me, while others say they look goofy. I think I look rather goofy, but they are amazingly beautiful. The only reasons I decided to get another pair was for the Artist Series. The design of these makes up for the lackluster overall design. These are one of a kind and will probably sit on display. If they work on you, go for it! If you can get your hands on a pair of the Artist Series frame, it is definitely worth it!

My opinion of these changed drastically when I saw them in person. They looked cool online but when I saw them in real life they looked real cheap. The one thing I liked about this pair was the chrome band. It looked real good against the polished black frame. These actually fit my big head pretty good. But the look of them were pretty bad. For some reason these look real cheap to me. Eye coverage was excellent and the frame was very light weight. It was just the style that killed it for me.

The style of these just doesn't do it for me. However, I feel like this color combo is awesome. The dark brown frame and the tan band are excellent together and to top it off with brown clear gradient lenses adds an excellent touch. Its just too bad that even the cool color scheme couldn't salvage the style. I guess if you are really into the retro thing this might do but be prepared to pay too high of a cost for a cheap looking pair of shades. Again, eye coverage is excellent and the frame is very light weight.

Frame: Olive Tortoise
Lens: Grey

They actually had three colorways in stock but the olive/grey looked the coolest so that was the one i tried on. I have to say, they fit surprisingly well. The orbitals are shaped similar to the crosshairs but the base curve is relatively flat so even those with a lot of "cheek meat" should be able to wear them.

Still, I'm just not a fan of the overall design so I'll take pass on these. They look like something Elvis Presley would wear. If he was an Oakley fan. And still alive. But that's just me, others will probably find them great.

Really cool pair. The glasses are virtually straight, temples, nosebridge, lens, everything, almost perfectly straight. The style is pretty cool, but you have to have the right face to pull it off. Overall a really nice pair, but the only complaint I have is the lens are a little too light for my taste.
kingphilbert -
Frame: Tortoise
Lens: Bronze

Another slight disappointment. And not in the styling. I really liked it, honest. It does seem wider than the Gascan, but it could all be an illusion with the flat lenses. So it slides and shifts just as the Can does when I wear it. I wiggled my nose, my ears and I was really sweating to give it a good test too. Just not a tight enough grip created by the stems. Not enough curve inward.

Edit: Sweat meat, what a treat. I purchased a Frio recently (about 2-3 months after the initial trial) and without taking back everything I said, it really is a nice, relaxed style. In the cooler weather it fares very well and stayed put. It also helps wearing it higher up on the nose than say, a pair of Monster Dogs.

Just picked these up off ebay. I think the Montefrio will go down as a "it's growing on me" pair. I wasn't too thrilled when they first came out, but the more I wear it, the more I like it. Love the chrome stretch and band on the earstems. Wish the grey was ____ iridium.

These are a little Ray Charles-esque. The color is cool and so is the metal strip which adds a little dressiness to the frame. However, the front is very flat and a little boring.

I really like them. For me, these is the best o-matter with these new stems... the fives 3.0 and the gascan aren't wearable for me, they slide all the time - you can only use them for lying in the sun. The Frio fits better and doesn't slide that much (but the fit isn't compareable to a fives 2.0 or a x-metal).
And the styling... quite strange and grandpa-like, but I love!

These glasses are very boxy and straight. Across the front they are very flat, with no curvature at all.

They are extremley different looking. They're good if you want to look retro or stand out from the crowd. Nowhere near my favourite pair of Oakleys. When I'm wearing them I think of all the other pairs I could be wearing instead.

Good for a laugh but not good for a primary pair.

I can see what Oakley and Shawn White were going for here, but how many times have you said to yourself, "Self, today I want to look like a mustache-wearing porn director from the early 70's"? This retro look must take some real getting used to because, so far, I just don't think it is flattering on anyone. Phil can almost "rock" it, but even he reminds me of some eccentric character off a 70's episode of Columbo. Shawn White should stick to his day job.

Saw these in an unfinished state without the Stretch logo on the arms. They have stems similar to the Gascan, but with a rounder orbital.

I find these kind of upsetting. I guess I expected more out of the combo of Shaun White and Oakley. The frames aren't bad, but they're bland and flat. There's very little curvature to the actual opticals, and the shapes are a little odd. I owned these for less than a week...then realized I just won't wear them. I guess, on the right face, they're fine...but I expected more.

Lens: Black

After these were going out of style, I felt the need to grab them. Of course I waited too long and they were dropped, but I was still able to pick one up for about half retail. The FMJ frame is what you'd expect and looks very nice with the Black lens. It seems fragile, but due to it's unavailability, I plan on treating them with extreme care. They lenses are very tiny and make you look like a crazed German scientist. Also when you fold them up, the very long ear stems go way past the other side and stick out about an inch. Crazy design, but with the contemporary models coming out nowadays, we need these little blasts from the past to remind us why we started with Oakley.

Update: The orbital decided to snap. I didn't even touch it. Guess it was bound to someday. Please bring these back with the modern O Matter.

An o-matter Mars, really. For it's time, though, I think it may have been the first o-matter frame to come with nose bombs. Odd look with the small orbital lens ... which actually makes it a nice addition to the Oakley family. We need something every now and then to mix up the Jacket family. A pretty snug fit with tight curvature, may cause some loss of peripheral vision with the frame blocking.

I always found it interesting that Oakley basically decided to copy an X-metal into a plastic frame. If I hadn't been working at the Sunglass Hut at the time, I would have thought they were knock-offs (much like some plastic knock-offs of other X-metals I have seen). Although I must admit they intrigue me for some reason. I may get the tortise frame, just to have one for collection. I don't know if I'd wear them very often though.

I picked these up cheap-was predisposed to love 'em, as the X-metal Mars are some of my favorite Oakley shades, bar none...
I was hoping for the same look in plastic that I wouldn't fuss over if they were damaged in the 'real'world-turns out that they have grown on me-If damaged, I would hunt new ones down.
I have a large size face/head, and they suit me fine-I disagree that they make you look crosseyed-maybe it's just me...
: retro-cyber'Mars'look, weigh nothing, great outdoor lenses, and from what I've seen, generally low priced-Also smaller than X-metals when folded, therefore fitting into standard vaults,torpedo/metal, and nylon/zip.
Only niggle is the screened logo on the bridge of the nose-not my style-Otherwise a good looking, comfortable bargain for everyday use-BRILLIANT.

Seems like an O-matter version of Mars. The orbitals have these bumps as the reversed of the crater's holes. Since it's made of O-matter, it's ighter and fit is better than the Mars. Just like Mars, it's design is not for everybody.

TERRORISM -
Frame: Black
Lens: Black Iridium

It appears that the Oakley design team decided to make an artifical pair of X-Metals (Mars) and came up with the Moon. Few people can really pull off a lens with a simple, "round" design, and if you're planning on doing so you might as well save up some bucks and opt for its X-Metal counterpart. I couldn't (and wouldn't want to) even imagine Oakley creating an o-matter "parallel" to the Juliet... An experiment in Mad Science gone awry.

Back in the day, I scoffed at the notion of the Moon. A cheapo Mars I called it, and for some good reason. They join the likes of Eye Jackets and Topcoats, as they break by merely touching sometimes (and sometimes just by sitting there). But as time goes by they seem to have some charm as they rest in the collection as a reminder that some models just come and go and no one really notices.

There's no way that you can look at someone wearing a pair of these and not smile. They're just awesome enough to be goofy, and just goofy enough to be awesome. I never once saw these for sale at any retail outlet, in fact, the first time I saw them was in this site's catalog. They're just unique enough for me to want them, and I've been fortunate enough to grab two pairs in as many weeks.

Comfortable and nicely functional. They fit me really well and the lack of width was offset by the fact that I could wear them closer to my eyes. Lightweight and gentler on the temples than the Mars. The look reminds me of Sigmund Freud. Or I.M. Pei. Along with the Topcoat, my favorite Oakleys for athletic use. Came in three colorways, I got all three. I wore only the FMJ pair off and on for a couple of years and then stored them away for posterity - unfortunately it looks like after over a decade of ownership, I'm pretty sure I see the beginnings of a stress crack in one of the orbitals. Still tied for my all-time O-Matter pick. The black and tortoise examples appear to have survived. Five stars from me for the styling, the nose bombs, the comfort and the elegant functionality of the extended, flexy arms.

I love oakley products and will continue purchase them, but there is apperently a design flaw in these particular frames. I have some Oakley Socket 4.0's on order ans should receive them this afternoon.

Frame: Mortar Matte Black
Lens: Rx

Really like the design and style. Colors are spot on,
but you prolly will choose matte black or silvery lead.
It would be hard to combine that army brown and
green with anything other than camo clothes.

Have had these for month and a half, and nothing bad to say.
In normal use, i dont think that earpiece would broke.

However, if you use hat or cap that rubs end of the earpiece,
I can see the possibility of metal leg punch through the
earpiece. I had this happen on one of my first oakley rx
glasses. It was because taking glasses on and off from
the tight motorcycle helmet. You can buy new earpieces,
already ordered few spare ones.

In my case, i will use these glasses with motorcycle helmet,
and it will wait till summer to see how these perform at that.

Color:

I own an Oakley Wool Skull cap that looks as if it's style was influenced very much by colder Russian environments. Low fitting, smooth black wool with a heavy grey fleecy wool band/cuff around the hat similar to the Moscow fabric. It always struck me as being very Russian/Siberian and is a great wear in the winter months. It's so nice to see that Oakley makes these few strange items that are out of the norm.

Color: Blue/Grey

The 2002 model I believe. Nice style hat but pretty small. If someone with a bigger head (size L or more) wears the 02 Moscow (haven't tried newer versions) it looses its shape and looks really messed up.

So the wife wears it in the winter, suits her much better. If the later styles are larger and keep their shape better then this would be something I'd buy again.

Color: Black/Oatmeal

I liked the current version of this hat (with the skull patch) so much that I picked up one of the older versions (with the O icon patch). It's pretty much the same, just slightly different colors. Super warm and covers most of the head, even the back. The silver icon is set in a circular leather patch on the front of the hat.

Color: Black and Charcoal

Another nice winter hat from Oakley. May look a little silly compared to beanie-styled hats, but the Moscow is light, warm, and covers all of your head without getting in your eyes. The berber fleece material is perfect for this kind of hat. The drawstring is good for keeping the earflaps down on windy days, and the cord lock on the drawstring even has an O icon on it!

i sold these one season , i had three , and it took almost 6 months to sell them. they fit perfect , but you really look like a russian submarine crewmember. ( hence the name )
very warm indeed

I really like the look of this hat but it's thinner than I expected. Not hardy enough for sub zero temps but very comfortable. I have the one with the Scull patch which looks cool.
Munkfish -
Really like this one - nice and warm - perfect for the UK winters, and usual Oakley subtlety ;) Used mine for skiing, and the neckstrap is very useful to keep it on your head!
Fezzik1071 -
This is a great hat that fits my style pretty well. Slightly out of the ordinary but not ridiculous. I get a lot of comments on it, and it is very comfortable and warm. I actually don't like the drawstring though; I just think it's way too long and I usually don't know what to do with it. It works at keeping the flaps up or down, but I just feel like a black cloth strap hanging on each side would look a little cooler.
oakleyman_69 -
quite possibly the most comfortable hat ever. Likewise gets me plenty of attention from the ladies. Attention that I under other circumstances would not get.
Dwcfastrice -
I own two of these, one in each color with the skull logo. T he wife and I wore them on a 19 degree, very windy day in Manhattan in January. Excellent wind coverage with the flaps down. Both of us were quite amazed at how light and thin these where and how much heat they actually held in. I was sweating at times. Can't say that with my regular beanie.
Ed -
A sparkly olive green, much more drab than Joker or Emerald... just the way I like it! Too bad it hasn't been used since the original Eye Jacket. Looked fabulous with Gold Iridium and Rootbeer earsocks.
LEX7 -
i agree with Ed,

very weird that 3 very similar colours where released around the same time.
this is basically a much darker non goldy sparkle version of the jokers.
a dark olive green instead of bright grass green.
banarno -
As with whats been said before,this colour was a slightly darker,less metallic colour than Joker,but still looked very nice with Gold Iridium.

Love this passport wallet, fits all my airliner cards, I.d's, passport, seamens discharge book (its a hardback passport for seafarers) and theres plenty room for check books, tickets and the like. There a little zipper part for coins or sd cards etc. Its well made.
Though I do prefer the earlier oakley travel wallets like the flight deck etc but nonetheless its great!
Plan-B -
Pro: Good ventilation. Chamois on par with other notable brands.
Con: No real waist size adjustment. Length could be longer for baggies.

These are my favorite riding shorts. I have slightly newer versions (I believe they're 2.4). I bought one pair in a Brown/Khaki color and loved them so much I went back and bought another pair in Black the next week. The chamois is about as comfortable as my Fox Racing shorts, but not quite as good as Specialized. The ventilation is the best in my collection (which also includes Cannondale and Pearl Izumi).

My only complaint is that the waist size adjustment is kind of useless. It's a button on the inside of the waistband and an elastic loop that cinches it a little tighter. Kind of clunky for a company like Oakley which normally has really great attention to detail. I also wish there were real hip pockets, there are two "cargo" style pockets on each side, one with a zip closure and one with a button closure. Still worth a 5 in my book.

The cabon fiber knuckle kick-ass look is really aggresive. Very well ventilated as well
YI -
Nice tight fight and aggressive looking. Was looking for the SI version but these would do just fine for airsoft - carbon fiber coating saves the knuckles, whilst the fingers just have enough padding to stop hits from incapacitating it. Good ventilation ports really do make a difference. The only snag is that the grip on the finger tips are slowly but surely wearing off!
Jay_X_Bee -
I (ab)use them for downhill. The fit and ventilation is excellent. The small knobs on the inside of the fingers started to wear off easily. The are also good fire-resistant.

The greatest pair of gloves i bought, the knuckles rock, lots of ventelation.
But then these babies look really badass when i cut the fingers off.

Color: Black/Red
These fit me perfectly, they have a slight pre-curve to them which means they don't bunch up at all. Not really really for winter use as they've got loads of ventilation. Oh and the carbon knuckles rock!
xMetal280 -
These gloves just fricken' rock. I've been wanting a pair of these for Mountain Biking for years, but they've been quite hard to find, and rather expensive. Finally I gave in, and am glad I did. The "tough" factor of these is high, with the carbon knuckle plate that's just waiting to hit somebody with. In actuality, it will make for nice protection while biking, as that part of the hand is pretty exposed. The gloves are made of a variety of materials, all in the right places, which makes for a very functional piece. They are comfortable to wear, and I imagine that I'm going to wear these often (off the bike) once the weather gets a bit colder. I love 'em.

Oakley's testament to it's solid support for MTB. Just as they provide protection for the eyes, Oakley protects the weekend warrior's hands from career-shattering hand injury with a glove that's constructed with a plethora of exotic materials including carbon fiber and kevlar. Just wearing them gives you peace of mind and allows you to enjoy the trails more. And it's well ventillated for added comfort. Oakley also offer these gloves to the military which just shows how good they are. The advanced design and meticulous details are just something you would expect from the the Mad Science labs.
Lapski15 -
Tons of venting (Stylish O Shaped Vents) so my hands never sweat. cant be used in the fall-winter though (at least in Canada) unless you like frostbite. great glove though. especially the kevlar pads on the palm.
yoko -
MTB use, these gloves are one of the best that I used so far. A little tight and stiff when new but gets better as it gets older or should I say abused. Also used a pair for shooting where i cut about an inch on the trigger finger. Does it job too. I wonder it the carbon fiber would break if I punched someone with it? Hmm.
ball5out -
I own 2 pairs of these. I use it when I go out at night. They look cool and will be usefull if I get mugged. MUgger will be suffering a knockout blow when I nail him with the carbon fiber knuckles. also usefull on other things u gotta do that requires such gloves like working out or biking

I stumbled on these at the local Vault a couple of weeks ago. I was planning on buying a pair of gloves from Revit at the motorcycle shop I work for. These fit well. I have a small hand (finger wise), but large palms. IT's a struggle getting into them, and I have to pull an OJ to get them on. But, once in, the snug fit allows for excellent tactile feedback. The knuckle protection was something I was looking for (hance the Revitt glove). I wear these to keep the wind off my hands. Thanksgiving night/Black Friday morning, I spent 12 hours outside in 30 degree weather and these held up well. The vents on the back of the fingers provided an unintended purpose. I was able to blow hot air into them to warm up my fingers every once in a while. The Unob "dots" on the finger tips make them great for doing work with them on. I know gloves as pieces of protective gear, having crashed in many pairs of gloves, some at speeds over 120mph. In looking at these, I am sure they would hold up to a crash that that speed. The stitching is excellent and it has a good amount of abrasion resistant material used in its construction. You can snag these on ebay every once in a while, but small sizes are nearly impossible to find. Didn't rate it a 5 becuase the fingers were still a bit too long. More of a typical Medium size finger on a small glove.

Sweet gloves. These provided awesome hand protection, obviously more so on the knuckles. I'm on my third pair, the next gen black/black, and despite the slight modifications with the leather palm and unobtainium finger pads, these still kick butt. I find my older pairs very useful for utility work in the garage or around the house. The knuckle protection is very handy while reaching into tight places. On top of all the usefulness they look straight up dangerous (in a good way). I also used them snowboarding as a light pipe glove replacement and other than getting them wet they held up well to the elements.
Oakleyman24 -
I've had these for a good 4 years, loved wearing them while driving. The cf knuckles are great, but the one dib I have with them is that the palms have no grip. I have a new pair with the leather palms, but I keep these around just in case I want to do some dirty work and lighter fabric is called for.
Jay_X_Bee -
Awesome pack. The hydration tube trap is good for keeping the tube close within reach.
Small clip-on / off pocket at the left shoulder strap for a powerbar.

Picked this up over the summer. Very comfortable with lots of padding. I took several long and short rides and the pack never became uncomfortable or caused any back pain.

Frame: Grey Tortoise
Lens: Clear

Really, really dig these frames. I'll admit that it took a few days for them to grow on me. They're pretty big, but I wouldn't call them heavy. Definitely sturdy and very well made. I get compliments on them all the time. If you like retro look with a more modern twist to it, these are definitely for you. If possible, give them a day or two. They do take a little time to grow on you, but you'll learn to love them. I also have a big head/face, so these may not look as good on someone with a smaller face. They may overwhelm you face.
EVL HMR -
Frame: Black
Lens: Clear
I've had these a month nowm very comfortable, but heavy after a full days use. I'm going to get new lenses in my Dictates to use every day, as these are good for work, but just awful at the gym. Style wise though, proper good.

Had these a while now, and the rubber on the arm peices is peeling off. Looks like I've dipped them in paperglue and started to pick it off.
Really poor quality from the big O, I've taken them into a couple of O stores and been told its just "one of those things"". One plank in there told me I shouldn't sweat if I'm wearing Oakleys as the sweat can damage them!!!

just got them an hour ago. My girl loves them but I'll take the advise and give it time to grow on me. Hmmmm the big Oakley symbol makes it okay to were ridiculous frames I guess.

I Love this style of box more that the others combined. It almost looks like (to me) that your buying "high end" bike parts or car parts with its see though and frosted sections.
TERRORISM -
The Mumbo box is iconic as it represents Oakley's yesteryear of clear acrylic packaging, bringing back nostalgic memories of neon frames and multiple lens hues. For some patent/legal reasons Oakley changed the name of the Mumbos to "M Frames" not long after their release, so if you've acquired one of these boxes, hang onto it!
Dann -
The Mumbo box is probably the single most important piece of packaging in Oakley's history. There is nothing special about the physical box, as it is consistent with the ones produced over the previous five year. However the naming designated on the front provides proof of the contents within. A pair from 1990 onward will simply be an M Frame. While nice in their own right, the Mumbo was the original piece that redefined sports eyewear, and possession of the box is the only way to assure that the glasses are among the few created before the name was changed.
DoctorCrip -
I really like the old school clear boxes that were used for these and the Frogskins. The white lettering on the clear box give it such a clean look. I also liked being able to see the contents inside without having to open the box. The only downside to this design was the fact that the box was not that durable and would bend or even rip rather easily.

awesome, wish i had one to keep my neon yellow mumbos in-just completes the set......update, got one now and boy does it look cool :)

Frame: Neon Yellow
Lens: blue iridium 67

These are like the pair that got me started (except crystal black and black iridium heater). so light, comfortable, and clear, is it any wonder why some of us have been Oakley devotes for a decade and a half?

Frame: Neon Yellow
Lens: Grey

The original M Frames.
Only came in 3 colorways to begin with,Black,White,and Neon Yellow.
The first sunglasses to offer the hammer earstems.
Greg LeMond first wore these back in 1989,and they were just the coolest thing on the planet.
Times change,but they remain a very important part of Oakley history.

Frame: neon yellow/white/black
Lens: grey 67/persimmon 67/black iridium/blue iridium?+red
never thought id own a pair of the originals, then snagged a pair for £18GBP in mint condition. the neon yellow looks awesome in the flesh, coupled with the 67 lense which fits perfect for my face.
still the best for me.

A good, comfortable shoe - I got a pair to replace my Merrell mocs. The Muzzles are a bit stiffer and have what seems to be a tougher sole. They also seem to be a better fit around the ankle.

I'm only giving it a 4/5 because I haven't had a chance to really abuse them yet.
Ed -
Color: Charcoal/Navy

This is a good pair of medium-duty boots for laceless fans. I've now had a chance to wear them in cold, icy weather, and the relatively stiff sole provides great support and adequate traction. The mid height also provides some ankle support, which is always good in the ice and snow. The pull loops on the front and back of the opening are definitely a necessity for putting these on... I have not been able to "step into" them without rolling the soft padded collar into the boot.

Like most Oakley shoes/boots, these are somewhat narrow at the toe, but they are not as tight as other recent offerings. It only took a few hours for my feet to become accustomed to them. If the toe box was a bit wider or "squarer", I would give these 5 skulls.

One interesting detail about the design is that the outsole does not wrap upwards very far, especially in the middle. It gives the illusion that the sole is very thin, but in reality the midsole is no thinner than most other footwear. The upper material just "hides" it. This sole design appears to be common with the Flak series as well.

It's nice to see Oakley continuing to offer laceless styles. However, Muzzle seemed to have a very short production run. Hopefully we'll see more boots like this.
