This is simply the best tearoff system available.....
american image -
a revolutionary design, normally you can get a miximum of 7-10 tearoff's on your goggle before loosing visibility ( blur vision ) but with these laminateds, you can put up to 28 !!! onto your goggle, and still see razorsharp.
oakley also manufactures these for other goggle companies such as SPY/SMITH/SCOTT

downside; the price, you loose almost one dollar each time you throw one away

early 90's model , fit and feel are superb , the silicone inner lining in the strap tends to get weaker after some time , but nevertheless still good enough for the job ; hold the goggle in place. colours were awesome , this being my favorite colour

Frame: Bubba Camo
Lens: Clear

I love Oakley's As you can see from my collection but I'm sad to say that I hate the goggles. I've tried on all the pairs that they make and none of them are comfortable.
I love all the colour lenses and frames they do but I cant put up with the discomfort so I have to ski in Smith Goggles.
I bought these for night skiing but they fog up really quickly so I don't recommend them for skiing unless you wear a helmet. The frame colour is damn cool though so that's why I have kept them, hopefully I will get to use them again one day.

Neon Orange/Orange Mirror

Found these on eBay for not too much. They're a nice piece of the goggle history, and they look nice next to my Eyeshades. The foam looks comfortable and it seems the quality has stayed the same after all these years. You can't beat Neon Orange as a catchy color too.

Nice belt, styling is fairly straight forward, accented by the Buckle, Wish it could have been thicker ie: 2-2.5" wide.

Color: Very nice belt, though I had to put another notch in for my thin waist! Slightly disappointed by the quality of the leather, seems to get worn quite quickly, but great style nonetheless.

Design of the buckle deserves 5 stars from me, but as o-xide and sparra have pointed out, the leather is a disappointment. Looks great b4 you wear it. But once you do, edges wear off more substantially where it brushes against the buckle. And yes, the buckle does scratch easily, though visible only close-up. Still, great for formal or casual wear, so long as no one gets to scrutinize them up close!!! Not sure why anyone would. Perhaps when admiring your awesome-looking belt buckle?

I have an O Pack 1 and I would hope to see improvements in this version but as I look at it I sadly don't. The main compartment is great, spacious. It's problems lie in the side compartments. Pack 1 had mesh pockets flush with the bag so they were not good for much and the web of the bag had no stretch or give for a water bottle. Pack 2 looks to have the same issues restyled.

I love this bag, it has a small pocket in the top of the bag for your wallet and MD player
i keep my keys and stuff in the side pockets and a bottle of water in the front mesh pouches.

it has a strap at the front so it will keep secure when your riding.

Color: Desert Camo

I just got this for what I think is reasonably cheap. I don't think the "O" icon on the front is made of metal, even though most pple think it is. Just some pretty hard plastic with a coating that'that makes it look a little metallish. Storage wise, it's pretty good, one deep compartment, good for the office or even school.

Material seems pretty durable. I like the comfortable shoulder straps too. I've hung some colorful carabiners on both the straps and it's added a bit of color and a ruggedness-look to the bag. I don't know what the 3 eyelets down the front end are for... so I taken to hang an extra-large silver carabiner on the top one, just to spice it up more. The front mesh pocket is very useful for easy access to odds and ends you can throw there, and still keep them safe.

Got this on sale for 15 bucks AFTER tax at sport chalet! It was alraedy a red tag sale and on top of it an additional 30% off of everything in store! WHOOOO

I saw several of these around my college campus before and it looked quite boring and simple. However, when I look at it up close I really like the top handle. Its a huge thick rubber grip with a small icon embedded in it. The backpack overall has a huge oakley logo on the front, which i think is made of metal. Its cold when i touch it hence i think it is metal.

I use this bag to carry my 15.4" laptop. THe side pockets are perfect to store my AC charger and the top small pocket can store my flash drives or other small items I can throw in.

This bag is very oakley. I like the tiny red skull tag on one of the shoulder straps as well. Adds uniqueness to it. For 15 dollars after tax, I can not complain at alllllllll!!

Color: Olive Green

What a kick-a$$ bag. The only thing I'd change on it would be switching the metal O on the back of to somewhere on the front instead...or at least a bigger O logo on the front. Other than that, there is absolutely nothing that I'd change. It is so spacious, comfortable to wear and extremely well designed. At first I was a little skeptical about how the Olive Green would look in person, but it actually turned out that I like the color very much. I can certainly see why the military and law-enforcement use this bag.

Color: New Khaki/Black

I do like this O Pack much more than the original O Pack but it still seems as if it''s primarily one large pocket [that just happens to be accented with a few more functional smaller pockets this round]. The main compartment is huge and can really hold more than I had expected. However, the bag does seem fairly flat and shapeless until it is loaded with any gear. I enjoy having the front and top pockets this round it's just a shame that the top pocket isn't padded with a headphone pass-through and that the front pocket doesn't have some pen holders and a few card slots. The side pockets are cool but flush with the bag to offer minimal expansion. I do like the industrial look and all of the daisy chains and snaps, but I''m also a little hard pressed to see anything they could be used for already knowing how the AP cases attach to the other bags. It could''ve been easy to have the AP strap system somewhere on this bag, perhaps in place of the side pockets, so you can add your own, or on the front pocket instead of the daisy chain. Overall it is a great bag that wears comfortably and will more than likely serve me well, even in lieu of the few complaints I have for improvement.

Got this for my friend for Christmas. It's a very nice pack almost on par with the Icons, but at a much lower price. The inside is lined with scatter skulls and static icons. There are zippers and pockets and shotgunshell holders everywhere. There are also metal loops everywhere for add-ons in the future.

Color: Black

I like it a lot, just not as much as O Pack 2.0. Seems a bit more fussy in the detailing, perhaps more of an industrial look. O Pack 3.0 seems a better buy than 2.0 if you're going to use it for more than carrying books and folders in etc, but if that's it, I'd go for 2.0 (which comes in funkier colours too).

this is a essential part of any workout, or outdoor activity. you have all your music and you are only limited by the size of your MP3 player. the dual earphones make it easier to hear callers, and the sound quality of music is much better than one might expect.

i would do some more research before you buy the icombi adapter though. when i bought these i had in mind that i would keep my ipod in my bookbag and my phone in my pocket. with the icombi you pretty much have to have it out in the open. i even have issues when my ipod is in my pocket.
the o rokr is awesome, the icombi leaves much to be desired

Only use this on the weekend while going out and during transit in airports.

Pro:
- Style is just alright.
- Very comfortable, no strains
- Bluetooth works perfectly. Paired to Windows Mobile, and all the control function properly. With some phones (like Windows Mobile), caller's name is announced so there is no need to get the phone. In my case, incoming text messages are also read in the O ROKR!
- For music, it sounds better than I expected.
- Enough battery power for my usage.

Cons:
- I wish I can get it with other lenses that are suitable indoors as well as outdoors, something darker thatn Ti Clear but not as dark as the Grey.

Wow! I really like these a lot. The design is very nice. I wish that they could've done a full frame but this does give you a chance to change up the lenses.

You can see all the electrical components within the frame.

Frame: Brown Smoke
Lens: Bronze

This is my current pair of sunglasses. I paired it up with my Motorola V3 and my 60 gig IPOD with the ICOMBI adapter. The sounds from the IPOD are way better than the wires that comes with the IPOD and with the extra earbud, It beats out having to wear the Bluetooth headset over the headphones. The voice connection is even better than the HS820 that I have.

The downside is that sometimes the wireless connection for the IPOD and the OROKR can have blank outs / skips. When a phone call comes in, the music is muted out and will continue to play. So it be nice to use the right side buttons to find your song, but I believe using the IPOD to do that instead.

OROKR - battery time approximately 6 hours with volume way up. Needs to be recharged every day.

Motorola V3 - needs recharging every 2 days with my usage.

IPOD 60 gig - battery time is about 8 hours from a 20 hour battery due to the ICOMBI Bluetooth.

Although it doesn't fit me that well, I have ordered replacement lenses of the BLACK POLARIZED variety. I have gotten comments about the pair being cool and even one guy said it was "so sick". However I will continue wearing this pair when I work and laugh at those people who are stuck with the headphones for their Ipods or watching one with one Bluetooth headset stuck in one ear and the other with the headphone.

I love the concept of these but the bluetooth technology is seriously flawed.
Just try putting your phone or Ipod in your back pocket and you will get continual dropouts. Apparently any bluetooth signal has trouble getting through the human body. The only way you can listen to a song without a drop out is to have your handset in line of sight with the Orokr;s.
So if your a keen biker and have purchased these to use while on your bike. Forget putting the handset in your back pocket it will only work if you tape the hanset to your front handlebar.

I'm not a very big fan of this color combination. The black on black is a bit boring to me and I think that this style is loud and flashy on both design and technology. It deserves crazy color combinations. Black on black is for everyday use so if you are looking for something conservative this is cool but I just think the OROKR isn't for the conservative. On the other hand, you can change the lenses to give this black frame some flavor. As my previous OROKR reviews, these offer great eye coverage and its relatively light weight for the technology. The buttons are pretty easy to use. The only bad thing is that with this pair, I've experienced problems with my battery which I didn't have a problem on my other pairs.

This is a very handy thing the Rokr is. The only problem I have come across with it is the Bluetooth adaptor iCombi. Sometimes it will flux in and out connection with the Rokr, but that is only when it is in my back pocket or around Microwaves. BUT it does go though walls and at a distance with to obstructions at about 50 feet. The microphone picks up very well unless you are in windy conditions ( like this with all BT earpieces) Wireless music is effin fresh and the fidelity is just about perfect. I defintly suggest this!

Purchased 3 sets of Oakley O Rokr Pro sunglasses. These glasses ranged in price from $220-$380 dollars. I purchased a set for my husband, my best friend, and an employee. All three glasses had failed within 8 months. I called Oakley and was informed that O Rokrs are a discontinued item and Oakley will not do ANY repairs on the glasses. They did state that if I sent in my $900 dollars worth of sunglasses they would offer me a 25% discount on a new set of non-electronic glasses!!!!!! Very surprised that Oakley would offer such horrible customer service... DON'T BUY ANY O ROKRS. IF THEY FAIL YOU WILL BE LEFT WITH A $380 PIECE OF GARBAGE!!!!!!!

I really was sceptical about this before hand, but at £100 it was a steal so I thought what the heck - verdict? It does the job, and does it reasonably well.
Took these babies with me to Tenerife. Yes I thought I'd look cool listening to some tunes while on the beech, going for a little jog and so forth, but then I took it up a step - quad biking in the dusty and rocky hills over looking Playa de las Americas, and climbing the dizzy heights of Mount Teide - the tunes kept me going when I could not, and considering I threw both dust and temperature at it and survived I am mighty impressed.
Only snag is that the bluetooth connection occasionally broke, even when the distance was from head to trouser pocket - but then again the only device connected to it was my N95 and the bluetooth transmitter on it isn't as strong as a dedicated iPod transmitter/other make? Either way, believe the hype - this thing works.

Oh yeah, it does look pretty damn fly as well.

I deliver new trucks for Volvo, Merc, and MAN. Totally reliable communication with my customers while on the move round Europe is vital. My Blackberry hooks up beautifully with the Oakley bluetooth and the earphone speakers puts the sound straight into both ears - no matter how noisy the cab environment. When the truck radio is boring or foreign language it is relaxing to have a huge selection of tracks/playlists to choose from on my phone with easy button contols on one leg of the Oakleys and similar buttons on the other leg for phone comms.
The eyeware options the Oakley system offers is unsurpassed. I fit the yellow lenses for night driving, also great for snow and fog. Clear lenses in changeable conditions or just resting up with a book and some relaxing jazz tunes at the end of the day settling down in the cab - but one touch of the comms button on the Oakleys and I'm quoting for some business 24/7. When the sun rises, well, polaroids, iridium whatever. No distortion on periphiral vision , UV protection etc. At the end of the day no eyestrain. This Oakley system is superb both for the safety requirements of long-distance driving in all weathers and the utterly reliable communications I require to keep my business successful.

Picked these up for myself on my birthday. I've always wanted a pair but at first I didn't have a use for them. When I did have a need for them they were discontinued. So when they arrived in my store at an amazing price I wasn't passing it up. Took about an hour to charge and extremely easy to sync up to my iPhone. Battery life was pretty good, they lasted a little over 4 hours. That was non stop playing. They also did break up once in a while but never to the point where I was upset. I'm planning to pick up a set of clear or titanium clear lenses for those occasions when I'm indoors and don't want to take the off. Sound was good but I wish they were a little louder.

Lens: black & titanium clear

these things will last 4 hours of continuous play or 3 hours of talk time (i'm guessing the mic and bluetooth transmitter uses the juice). they're perfect for when I'm cycling or working at an event where instant and nonchalant communication is key. they fit well and I don't really need the rubber on the frame (I say rubber because I don't think they're using the true unobtanium on these things) and the sound is pretty loud and clear. sometimes when I have my phone/bluetooth source in my cargo pocket the signal will cut in and out as I walk but I think this might be a matter of my phones signal strength.

I also use these with the titanium clear lenses while i'm working indoors with machines. the earbuds can be heard well though i with they could seal out outside noises but thats going above and beyond the realistic expectations.

I give it a 4 because it works and performs extremely well but, look wise, doesn't quite have the full oakley statement. also made in Singapore because of a motorola clause

I'm really glad Oakley made the Ti Clear replacement lenses for the OROKR. These lenses are pretty easy to change. I like to use the Ti Clears on my OROKR for overcast or sunsets. These replacement lenses give you the ability to change your lenses quickly to meet different conditions. I just hope Oakley decides to release more colors.

I love the way they look, especially the little silver icon on the upper. As for the fit, when I first got them, the straps were so tight as to be almost painful to wear. I stretched them out by stuffing a couple of softballs under the straps for a few days and now they're quite comfortable. I do a lot of walking and I wear them everyday, everywhere and I no longer have any complaints. They'd get a higher rating if I didn't have to stretch them out.

I think these are great-I have big wide feet, and like most oakley footwear, I have taken a full size larger than I usually use. They fit great- I wear them every day- can't go around in boots all the time- They are easy to clean, weigh nothing, and quite comfortable.
Only issue is in a squat, you don't want to go up on your toes/heels up : the top of the toe split will dig into your top of your feet-otherwise, no issues...
The design is aesthetic eye candy- love the 'thunderboat' design-

A good-looking sandal, but like most thongs, not very comfortable in my opinion. I only use these if I'm going to the pool, and they are perfect for that purpose. They seem solidly built, so expect them to last a long time. Perhaps they will get more comfortable with use.

These sandals usually ship with a neat little mini-hanger, I presume for those stores that prefer to hang them on racks rather than sell them in box. It is molded out of a porous black plastic with a styled icon below the hook. Nice little collector's item!

I've been after these glasses ever since my friend got the Rust combo, and now I've got my own, almost a year later. I look at these frames, and I think that they themselves stand out against the other RX frames the O has to offer.

One is the non-uniformity of the rim. The newer RX wire frames have rims which run along the shape of the lens, but on the O Wires, the rim widens towards the ends, if that makes any sense. It reminds me of the Mags, somewhat.

Second is the hollow Icon. I love it, and always an eyecatcher!

The material is made of C5 alloy. Although most people complain that this gets heavy after a while, if you've been wearing glasses all your life like I have, then the weight is negligible.

The O Wire is no longer available, and I was lucky enough to find it at one of the nearby optometrists. Its a pity, really. I hope the O makes frames like these in the future.

Have had 2-3 RX replacements, like these frames very much & considering the longevity of the frames, especially that they look pratically about a year old or less, peolple are amazed when I tell them that I bought them over 7 years ago !!! ..., They are well worth the $225-USD I paid for them MANY times over !!!

This was my first set of Oakley RX and boy I was impressed as I wore them 5 ears before retiring them. I have stepped on these dropped them off a bridge and rolled over them numerous times never really showing any damage or even bent!!! The finish started to wear off so I sanded it off and repainted it but will need another set of lenses/Earsocks before I put them back in service. they felt very rigid on my face but they replaced a set of glasses that blew off my face while I was in the bed of a truck. I have been in the back of trucks since then and haven't had this problem :). Also while riding roller coasters these never did feel like they were going to fly off. I don't like taking my glasses off because I feel blind and whats the point of flying if you can't see.

The biggest issue I have with Oakley RX is a lot of their glasses have flimsy ear socks. These lasted one year and then started to split. My O-wires where worse, only lasting about a year but if you talk to Oakley Customer Service they will send you your first replacement free otherwise its 6$. Not bad but I would figure I can full on stomp on these and not break the frame why put such flimsy Earsocks/Temple covers on them? I ordered another set of covers but they are generic and do not have the hole for the O. I can see why as this was the first spot it would deteriorate at.

Frame: Rust
Lens: Rx clear

Loved these frames since I first got them. The nose pad became discolored and the ear socks were sliding off. At that point I didn't replace them, which I should have. I get bored easily and wanted a different look, so I retired the frames. Unfortunately Oakley doesn't make quality frames in styles like these anymore.

A few weeks ago I was cleaning & found my old glasses. Boy have I missed them. I will somehow try to replace the nose pads and ear socks if they still make the parts. And I plan I putting my current lens Rx.

Ahh..the revival of my O-Wires...

Frame: Pewter
Lens: Clear RX

Nice RX frame for people like me with strong prescriptions. The small lens size and oval shape kept my RX lenses from getting too thick at the edges. Like all Oakley frames, these are quite strong and well-built. I've been wearing mine at night (I wear contacts during the day so I can wear my Oakley sunglasses) every day for almost two years without any problems. The ear socks do a great job helping to keep these on my face since I have a flat nose. The overall fit of this frame is snug, so it is probably best for those with small heads/faces. It would be nice if Oakley made a version of these with spring hinges for added comfort.

Frame: Platinum
Lens: Oakley Clear Rx

I bought a pair of nos O1 rx frames a couple of years ago and brought them in to Foothill Ranch for a pair of prescription lenses. I was hesitant to stop wearing my O5s but I experimented with the finished O1s every now and then, eventually switching to the O1s full time, just to do something different. The O1s were a little small, 48-19, but they flexed enough and widened enough to get a comfortable fit. There's some flex and give in these frames but they deal with daily use and abuse very well. The hinges are strong and nicely sculpted. There's just enough "Oakley" in the fluid lines of these glasses that people notice you're wearing something different but it's very subtle. Even more subtle are the tiny "intake port" indentations on the stems. They're almost subliminal. The O1 has a thinner structure than the O5 and it's a little more vulnerable to bending. The translucent earsocks are a great feature and they allow the Platinum finish to "glow" through the Unobtainium. The earsocks don't have a symmetrical thickness so make sure they're turned thin-side out!

Frame: Platinum
Lens: Rx Clear

I just bought this frame in the last week and it will be my next Rx. I love wearing contacts and hence wearing Oakley's but to be able to wear Oakley's unlike any others when you can't wear the sunglasses is a great feeling. The fit is just great for such a slim frame and the little sculptural augments around the ear stems and fangs are just cool. I don't recommend for a larger head, though they make them in 2 sizes like almost all the Rx Wires. I can't wait to get my Rx in them.

Frame: Pewter

I like this frame, was my first ever Rx. Was very solid and strong. The biggest downside was that it didn't give me enough prescription coverage when I looked forward. However for Oakley's early Rx frames, they were noticeable and different from what everyone else was wearing.
jumpman73 -
Frame: Light
Lens: Clear

I was extremely surprised at how well these fit my big head. I was expecting them to stretch out like crazy but they didn't. The frame itself is very light weight and comfortable to wear. I also didn't expect the eye coverage to be all that great, but it actually had very nice eye coverage. I didn't see a lot of frame when I looked through the lens. Usually with small frames I'm distracted by seeing a lot of frame but with these, I see very little frame when looking through the lens.

Frame: Titanium [11-622]
Lens: Clear (non-Oakley) prescription shape 1

When I first got this frame in my hands I thought it's not made for me. After trying on it had not enough grip and felt too weak.
But when the prescription lenses where fitted it was awesome. I had the feeling that I was wearing nothing. The spring hinges make this frame very comfortable for everyday usage. And the classic look makes it even better.
It's the best glass I ever had no doubt. Would be a great RX sunglass with dark tinting, like grey or black.

These are the greatest, very comfortable, light and don't slip down the nose bridge. I have two pair, one with progressive lenses and it's my favorite to wear all day at work. Get compliments all the time, too, because they are unusual.....
ChrisFlynn -
Frame: Titanium/Lens 2
Lens: Oakley Clear Rx

I got these directly from Oakley in the infant days of their rx program. The hinges are very delicate and the springs may have been a little underbuilt. The hinges have never been tight. Still, they reliably served as my backup rx glasses for many years. The styling is beautiful. Great-looking with a suit and tie. To me, the O3 showed everybody the nuanced elegance that Oakley's capable of when they pull back the styling throttles a little bit. These glasses always drew compliments but some people - while talking to you about whatever it was you were talking about - would seem to study the nosebridge for a few minutes before they'd say how nice the glasses were. That's subtlety. I'd get another pair if I could find them but there aren't many of these exotics around. Four stars only because they're kind of delicate.

Liked them a lot, however the earsock would get rolled if
you put glasses too tight under the motorcycle helmet or such.
It only takes few rolls and you need the replacement for earsock.

Otherwise, very nice looking frame.

Frame: Silver
Lens: VR50 Emerald

The 05 is a great sunglass wire option for a more subdued, professional look. Not quite the sporty look of many of the wire frames. But the colorways are excellent, particularly the VR50 Emerald since it's a rare commodity to find in any frame. The 05 has a very flat base curve, and a pretty narrow fit. I love that the earstems flare out a bit at the tips, much like the Crosshairs do.
kingphilbert -
Frame: Silver/Cobalt
Lens: Fire/Black/Grey

I called Oakley in 2000/2001 and had asked "will the 05 Rx ever be released as Sunglasses?" The answer I got was "No." Simple and enough to make me pony up and buy the frame for an Rx. Now five years later I find my self in posession of 3 of these finely sculpted frames as I had once hoped, as sunglasses.

Whether to rid themselves of backstock Rx frames or finally realizing how nice a piece they had to keep just Rx I am glad it finally saw the light. From the thickened retro orbital to the faux flex coupler seat/OO stlye tordepo protrusion at the hinge all the way down to the classic x-metalesque Icon sculpted into the frame at the stems end, this is a piece of art.

The fit compares to most basic wires and the thin stems have a curve that provides just the right amount of flex without the loose spring hinge feel of other styles. The flat lens and thicker orbital add just a bit of class to the frame, but can end up looking tiny on wider heads.
O-Whores -
Frame: Silver
Lens: VR50 Emerald

Love the flat thicker look of the frame with the flat lens, just about anyone could pull these off. I agree with oogie about the professional look, I would definitely wear these around my clients.

Even though they aren't spring hinged they fit like a half wire. Can't wait to get our hands on more of these. The VR50 was a great starting point!
BullyVW -
Frame: Silver
Lens: Black iridium
One of the few Oakley frames that one can call elegant. The o5's had tiny little orbitals attached to thin, but secure, arms. They may look small on some bigger heads, but the eye coverage is rathe good considering size. The frame itself has some weight, but nothing that's overwhelming.
kingphilbert -
Frame: Brown
Lens: Rx Clear

I made this my first Oakley Rx from the RX line. It's an amazing little frame. The best part was that it had a thick orbital frame similar to some of the trendy plastics being worn, and you didn't have to look like everyone else. The arms are slightly curved in and very thin which gave an awesome spring and flex when worn and the sculpted hinge is cool how it sets into a little carved out seat (similar to the Juliet's earstem setting into the shock). I guess that's why I always looked at these and saw the Juliet as well.

Frame: Cobalt
Lens: Persimmon Rx
My first Oakley Rx. Loved the one-piece frontal; it gives it a unique look. The nosebridge could have been one size bigger, to fit better on larger noses. The nosepieces however are easy to adjust. The stems create a secure fit.
I would still be using it, if my prescription had not changed.

Frame: Cobalt (50mm)
Lens: RX Clear

my second pair of Oakley RX frames. the Cobalt finish is very nice, it's not as blue as i'd imagine it to be, it's more of a nice, dark steel blue. what stands out for these frames are the thick orbitals and the nice, sculpted hinge design... very X-Metal like. even with the 50mm version, the frames are still a bit too narrow for my wide head, and the thick orbitals/hinges doesn't offer too much flexibility for adjustment. but all in all, very unique looking frames!

ChrisFlynn -
Frame: Silver
Lens: Oakley Clear Rx

My rx glasses for many years. Wore them to work, wore them cycling, so the look is really versatile. People recognize them as Oakleys but there's just enough restraint in the styling that they don't look too casual. The silver finish has an FMJ-like luminescence but it's not overpowering. This is one sturdy eyeglass frame. Probably over 8 years of use, maybe 300 days a year, no loose hinges, no repairs, no bending. The O5-specific earsocks have to be replaced every couple of years as they fall apart after a while. But that's a minor item; these glasses are my favorite Oakleys, bar none. For the time being, I've switched to a pair of O1s just to do something different but I'll go back to the O5s. Five stars with no conditions and no hesitations.

A great bag for your laptop. Obviously looks more industrial than your typical laptop bag which is awesome. The black still makes it business enough that you can actually use it. Tons of extra storage, but the downside is that it can get very heavy, especially with a heavy laptop.

I carry a lot of items with my laptop.

I have a 14" Dell that I use for work, along with two additional laptop drives and cables to attach, a canon s400 w/ extra batteries and charger, extra laptop battery, charger, cell phone, a twenty CD holders, and full size mouse that I carry in and out of the office daily.

Overall it got to the point that I couldn't carry everything I needed to so I upgraded to the ICON 2.0. I still really liked the bag, I used it for 6 months before getting rid of it. I definitely recommend it to some one w/ light duty needs to carry laptop and not much more.

Actually this is for Computer Bag 2.0:

IRL there are indeed many pockets, but if not used, they're not in my way because they're flat. Although the velcro feels somewhat strong for the thin fabric. Downside is that I already 'lost' my pen because I didn't remember in which pocket it was...

It's mentioned before, but where do I leave my glasses?!?! C'mon this is an Oakley bag...
The middle section could use a zipper that opens all the way down for easier access. Now you have to stare down this dark hole to find something (that will probably be black:o).

To end with some positive notes because it seems I'm negative about it now, which is absolutely not the case;
The cool factor off course. It's classy enough to use for business purposes but still has this touch of style and 'difference' to stand out. Love it!
Enough space for my daily needs and still not bulky and big like some other computer bags. It somehow seems to grow with everything you feed it.
It's very sturdy and gives a definite feeling of toughness, without beeing big-boned.

In short; I love it! Once I have used it for some time I'll give an update if needed.

Great Golf Bag. With good size pockets it will genaerlly fit all the stuff you need on course. Solid construction alround and the shoulder straps make it very comfortable to carry. as a cart bag it sits in carts very well still giving easy access to all the pockets. Club divders are padded and strong.

Very dissapointing from Oakley. Have had the bag for around 3 months and am not impressed, it seems very out of balance and far too top heavy when full of clubs. The harness is a good idea but very uncomfortable, and the stand is worse than useless unless it is on perfctly level ground. This bag is constantly falling over even the slightest breeze and its on the deck. To be perfectly honest it is utter **** and had I have paid full price for it direct from an Oakley dealer I would have sent it back straight away. It does however look the part but unfortunatley that is the only good thing it has going for it. I own many other Oakley products which are all brilliant and faultless but this I have to say this one is rubbish so come on Oakley sort it out for the next one.

Bought it a couple of years ago whilst on vacation in L.A.and wished I'd hadn't bothered. Yeah it looks good but it's totally impractible if you are a serious golfer.It's the worst designed golf bag I have ever had; the pockets are rigid and hold practically nothing worth mentioning, it is very unstable, the shoulder straps need a lot of getting used too...etc etc,so much so, I've had enough and am selling it on eBay. The designer of this piece of **** is obviously not a golfer!

The grip was originally designed for motocross and supercross. The grips had a 'tab' on each end that was supposed to aid your leverage,but it just used to get in the way when you pulled back the throttle. The Oakley grip had 2 versions, 1st gen had the original Oakley logo that used a knobbie tire as the letter O, and the 2nd gen had the newer thermonuclear protection logo.

A collector piece that every Oakley enthusiast has in their collection. They are getting very difficult to find, get them while you can.

Old school single colour BMX grips that defined the words “trick” and “cool” in terms of components for your bike.
Lovely and soft,using Unobtainium which is the same material used for sunglass earsocks and nosepieces.

Like the Grip 3, the .5 came without a box and instead arrived in a plastic bag. It's all one piece much like the B2, but a little smaller and softer.

Definitely an interesting design. The original grip was meant to be molded to your hand, but this model takes that literally. Looking like it was molded from a lump of squished clay, this is one design that shows Oakley all over.
banarno -
These grips had the same design tread as the original grips, only they had a more traditional look to them. They did away with the leverage tabs on the ends,that only seemed to get in the way every time you cranked the throttle, so traction in 360 degrees was aided further.
Dann -
Similar in style to the original grip, but without the extra tab. These grips moved back towards the cylindrical shape that a few others would follow. Finding these grips nowadays is no easy feat.

I got a hold of one of these in Hawaii, when buying the Gutter Rashguard. It's amazing how much work goes into the products they don't even sell. As a hanger, it works very well, and seems very durable.
Rick -
Very cool evolution of the Oakley hanger. You wouldn't think such cutting edge design could be communicated through a hangaer - but you would be wrong. I'm more of a dark stained wood hanger kind of guy but this just goes to show Oakley loves the whole notion of design and that is what attracts me to this company. Nothing is left as normal. Awesome.

I have one of these. Very cool looking piece of plastic. If two of the hooks were turned the other way (which would then render it unable to hang things) it would make a cool display item, much like a throwing device of some kind.

To all who have never had the pleasure, I have...I can tell you personally from taking the full blown tour, that this place is head and shoulders above anything you could imagine!!! My son and I took the tour, and from what I have been told, it was one of the last ones...When you go in, it is totally industrial...Concrete, weathered looking metals, a torpedo (yes, a full size US Navy torpedo) on stands on the floor, pilot jet ejector seats for those waiting, and a funny car body hanging on the far wall..But that my friends, is only where you start!!!

Behind the wall where the body hangs is a full blown theater for a movie theater like presentation of Oakley movies and meetings. We also got to see further in a FULL NBA Official Basketball court (they have one of only a few in the country), which we were told has been played on by the U.S. Olympic teams for training, NBA players to shoot around on (does Michael Jordan ring a bell) and state teams making the grade. Next we saw production areas, R&D, packing, shipping, product testing (they compare their products to the competitors literally!!! so you can trust what they say), wear testing on clothing, aparell, shoes, etc. to see how and where things wear and fail in order to better them. I also saw the Thump in the R&D phases (very cool), their state of the art Stereo Lithography demo (awesome, they turn liquid resins into full scale models by curing it from the inside out), the lens making, and yes, I saw the Iridium room and how they coat the lenses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WWWWWOOOOOOO WWWWWHHHHHOOOOOO. The HOLY GRAIL OF OAKLEY SUNGLASSES...

They told us on the tour that they have designed and manufactured the vast mojority of the machines they use in production, and the technologies involved so they can keep the secrets inside!!!!If they still do, or ever do again allow tours, you must go!!!If not to admire the products, to admire the technologies and architecture...

Worked there in 2000 in loss prevention and little known fact..(not listed in movie connections) The train station sequence in x-men was filmed in the lobby of the HQ,those who have been there a few times will notice the overall structure hasn't been changed but they had to remove the reception desk and other items. the ticket window was placed where the funny car body is.

After finally experiencing Oakley HQ incarnate, I can unequivocally state that it is an experience like no other. The outside is reminiscent of an outerspace docking bay, and the interior is equally impressive. Huge rivets, fans, bombs, and even jet-fighter seats adorn this sculptural work of art. Seeing is believing.

Went to headquarters last week and it was bit of a disappointment. The O Store on campus was not any better that my local store in Sacramento, actually it was worse. They were out of stock on the shirt, decal, and phone case I was looking for. I ended up finding those items on the second leg of my business trip in Ontario Mills Mall. There was no tour and the help in the O Store was less than courteous. I was glad I had the opportunity to see the architecture, but it was not a ideal customer experience.

Wife and I were meeting family in Vegas, after which we took the drive to HQ (in a super fuel efficient rental Honda Insight). After all the hassle going thru toll roads and what not, it was pretty much a let down. The outside of the building looks like it needs cleaning (rusting of the rivet-like pieces?). There was no tour, and the so-called musuem looked pathetic, with many pieces missing. The O-Store there was nothing out of the ordinary, although I found the staff there above average friendly, I would say better than the typical O-Store employee I've encountered elsewhere. Building looks better in pictures than actual. Photoshop helps, I suppose.

I was shell shocked the first time I arrived at HQ, which was the 2009 Co-Pilots contest.
I had researched it so much over the years, I knew what to look for, but was taken aback at how damn cool it was. It is unlike any corporate culture out there...and if you love Oakley design, you will feel right at home.

The Oakley jets are used for transporting Oakley brass to and from important company functions. I have yet to ride on one but I imagine it to be a rewarding experience. However, I don't think these planes would be effective in a battle situation since they are not equipped with weaponry of any kind. This would create a problem with regard to engaging the enemy. I think it is best this plane continue serve the function it currently is - moving the rich guys around with class and style and upping Oakley's image in the eyes of the movers and shakers of society.
Tim Yue -
hi im new to this site thoought i'd update you all on Oakley's new plane

They first started with the N2T Bombardier Global Express in the Dark Brown bolted paint scheme

Then they bought a new Bombardier Global Express however since the delivery was in a few years time they utilized Bombardier's display model registration N701WH and Oakley painted it into a white camo scheme as shown above

However, since early 2006, Bombardier delivered the Global Express to Oakley and they now have a new jet with the original registraion N2T (Jim Jannard is the CEO of a company under the name of N2T) The paint scheme is also White Camo but the Camo is supposed to replicate the world map.

The interior is just a typical business jet setting seating 14 passengers. This plane operates out of Signature Flight Support at SNA.

By far the coolest airplanes I have ever seen. I love the fact that the Sub Zero N2T is named after these. Boy, what I would do for a ride on one...

Nice belt. Only the coating on the buckle started peeling of after wearing it for several months. The skull logo on the tip is awsome!

Had to have one but could never find my size - so I bought one and swapped the belt out and kept the buckle - wear it constantly!

Good: I simply love this belt because of its design which is not 'flashy', simple yet fashionable look, and high quality leather! It fits most belt loops and the buckle is average size, not too big. Suitable for everyday & office use.

Bad: When it is slightly loose (when your stomach is empty), it tends to fall off. The hook does not fit as tight into the holes unless if u're wearing it quite tight on your waist.
flippj -
nice belt but the little hook tends to come out opening the belt..tend to display only now ive got the plate belt

I like this belt, not quite as much as the plate. The leather is pretty much the same as the plate belt just with a different buckle. The buckle is pretty sharp looking.

These are awesome for displays!

The high quality, swish leather bound (faux or otherwise) hardcover folder holds 10 sample lens blanks and the corresponding tags detailing their light transmission stats, UV category, and best suited purposes. The lenses and tags both are removable for customization. The sample lenses vary between country regions.

No fancy box for these. They came in a plastic sheath that held them. The wings are an interesting touch, but I don't see the point. Another one for the wall display...

This was the last grip Oakley made. They had the same type tread as the earlier F-1 grips had,only without the sleeve. Firstly they came out in the standard colours (Blue, Yellow, Red, Black and White) then, they came out in neon colours, or “freestyle colours” - (Green, Purple, Yellow ,Pink,Orange.)
TERRORISM -
The "Script" logo, as it's referred to, seems to be a total parting from Oakley's "no-holds-barred", "take-no-prisoners" heritage. The font simply doesn't convey the sense of seriousness that Oakley has represented over the years. Just imagine if something like this was pasted above the entrance of Oakley HQ...

Can come in many colors. The Twitch has a black base or purple. The limited Gascan has white, and the upcoming Stockholm is Pink. Basically its logos and icons scattered about as outlines
Rick -
Very subtle, but very unique. I like the fact that Oakley is now even paying attention to the inside of the frame. Makes showing them off to others all the more fun. At first, it isn't quite obvious what the pattern is - but it is a scattering of the icon trademark. Very funky.

The hardest Milestone 1/16 diecast to find ever. Very cool collectible often seen selling for nearly $400 on eBay. Grab it if you can find it! Looks good in my Oakley display case along with the Scelzi glasses and autographed Scelzi cap.

I have the Firebird version. I bought a few of the diecast cars on a whim, and this is the largest and most awesome. They take up a lot of room, but they're loads of fun.

Just acquired the Pontiac Firebird version of this car with the same paintjob...

Not having been a serious fan of the car models in the past, I wasn't quite sure what to expect when it arrived in the mail. Needless to say, once the car was released from its vault my expectations were FAR exceeded. From the paintjob to the meticulous craftmanship of the detailed engine to the working tyrods on the vehicle itself, this model set an extreme standard that was difficult to attain. Oakley.com currently features this car for $25, and I highly recommend it to any Oakley fanatic; you simply cannot go wrong for the price.

It fits a wide range of glasses. Some seem to move around a bit but store them in your microfiber bag and they will be fine.
It is very durable and provides good protection just as all vaults.

These came free with my last OCP purchase as of 3/2008 when you get the lenses engraved, and glad they did! A little bit of treasure to go with my one-off custom Minute 2.0's. LARGE case fits just about any of my folding pairs, except the X-Metal XX's that require their own special case....
Dwcfastrice -
it's great it comes with your etched OCP order. But.... for my CROSSHair they're not so good. They're only padded in one side, and my glasses have been bent up several times, severely. I had to go get another aluminum vault. The OCP case is a good display thing. Not so good for use.

It's huge. I got one for my OCP Gascans, and they rattle around. It's the only case I have that's large enough to fit Eyeshades.

Frame: Off Line 2.0 Olive Chrome
Lens: RX lenses

I've had them for close to 5 years now and they're no worse for wear... I've dropped them or banged them a few times and despite the chrome coating the frames barely show any damage (though there is some if you look closely). Very durable compared o most thinner frames but still lightweight and finer looking than thick plastic frames. I'd buy them again if I could... Haven't found anything I like quite as much to replace them with!

Frame: Black and Black Cherry

I used to own these until they got punched off my head at a bar. When I did have them on, they had a nice frame weight but were a little tight. They have adjustable earstems so that could have been corrected. All in all, a nice pair of Rx glasses.

I have had these for a year and a half now. Great glasses, very tough. I have been in many wrestling matches with my girl friend an she has the tendancy to smack them off my face.

Not a bg deal though.

Frame: Black/cherry
Lens: Rx

I spent a long time looking for my new glasses and liked the way most of the Oakley's looked. C-wire was my first choice but the black/cherry combo looked way cooler. Everything about the Off Line is great save for the fact that they do not have any rubber on the arms. Move your head quickly and they may fall off (a problem common in Oakley frames as they do not curl behind the ears). One soon learns to give a reassuring tap on the nose bridge when looking down, especially at height!

WONDERFUL GLASSES. I have had three different pairs of Oakley RX glasses (square wire, straight line 6.0 and these) and the offline are by-far the most comfortable. I have a rather large head and have had no problems at all with these being too tight (like the straight lines) nor too loose (the square wires). I hope to get another pair to put dark lenses in.

I agree with Chad regarding the fit of the other 2 frames I had the same problems. The Offline 6's are GREAT glasses very solid and stylish yet very light to wear all day.They are very cool and sporty looking and still professional. I have gotten lots compliments on them and asked where I bought them. (Ebay is the cheapest place).The only negative remark I have to make is from time to time I have to tighten the screws for the arms as they come loose. I would recommend these frames to anyone.

I was surprised how much I like this frame after trying it on. It is a fairly large frame and wraps around my face great. It feel a lot like the Oil Rig, but wraps around slightly more. I'm not a fan of the hardware on the earstems, but like the feel so much I can deal with it. They look a little less aggressive from the front and quite a bit less aggressive from the sides. To me, they are like a subtle pair of Oil Rigs.
xxmetal -
Frame: Polished black
Lens: 24K Gold Iridium
An absolutely outstanding pair of shades. They fit snugly on the face, and don't allow any leakage whatsoever. However, they are highly prone to fogging, as they make something like a seal (for lack of a better word) to your face, bringing any of that nasty eyebrow sweat onto the inside of the lenses. As long as you aren't sweating, however, this "seal" makes this pair one of the most comfortable, in my opinion. They look great on almost any face. And if you forget you goggles, these work well on the slopes. Just don't fall!

Frame: Dark Translucent Olive

Yet another Oakley model trying to atract the fashion crowd with the oversized lenses that could possibly cover Rhode Island during a July heat wave. You need a certain face and/or a certain attitude to pull these off and since I have neither, I won't be buying these any time soon. I do like the Olive Crystal frame though, and the double-flapped earstems look really, really cool.

I can't wait to try these in person. It is already February and Oakley Japan is not even close to having these. I like the design and think they are a cool derivative of the Gascan but with a distinct arm design. I am leaning towards the cinder red model and I will update this review once I have them.

Edit: Got the Cinder Red/Black combo and can't say enough good things about them. They are big, but they don't look silly like some other wildly-large styles. The color of the frame is very subtle and appears black at first glance, but the metallic dark red is absolutely stunning. A friend tried them on and immediately said "Get me a pair" so I think it's safe to say Oakley has another hit on their hands.
eyeyeye -
Frame: Brown Smoke
Lens: Bronze Polarized

Enthousiastic about the design I decided to try one on.
The lensshape is rather large, making it hard for air to circulate. I used the Oildrum on a warm day and as soon as I'd get in my car with the airco running the lenses would condens on the higher end, making it difficult to look through.
I can imagine the frame would be excelent for outdoor activities, as there's less changing in temperatures. I'll stick to my Monsterdogs, however.

The lense coverage is excellent. Despite being big the sunglasses are lightweight. The arms felt a little short but I tried to get them to fall off my face and couldn't, so its a non-issue. The grey lenses were pretty bland, but when I tried the Amber Black Iridium polarized I was really starting to like the sunglasses (I like large coverage lenses with some color). They looked decent on my face too. The only problem with these that I could tell is ventilation. They were fogging up on me inside the store.

I dont know why i waited so long to get oildrums, they are awesome, sooo comfortable for my big head and provide excellent coverage in this huge wraparound frame. so when i heard aboutt he cisses versions i just had to grab them, and ofcourse i was happy to hear how damn rare they are.
the left lens has a bloodskull on instead of cisse sig instead his sig is on the earstem which makes a nice change.

Big, chunky, and a case of the "blahs". I think this is another pair that will have to grow on me. I don't hate it, but it doesn't inspire me. It's BIG, which as a certain flare. But the lenses/front frame styling is pretty boring. The earstems are pretty cool. I think I'll reserve my final judgment until I start seeing the colorway I'm really looking forward to: Cinder Red/Black.

Brown smoke with the bronze polarized is one of the coolest looking color combos. I'm not a big fan of the polarized though but these are still pretty sweet. Eye coverage is beyond excellent and the fit was very nice. These are very unique looking too. Definite must own.

I love these glasses. I love how big they are and I love the styling. They're kind of like the Gascan's big brother, except with a few extra flares.

Frame: Dark Translucent Olive
Lens: Grey

Initially, I wanted to get a pair of Five 3.0s, but they were too small for my big head, so I kept going up frames until I got to a point where it was between the OD and the Eyepatch, I chose the OD because they were slightly bigger, had a chunkier feel and had those sick flared earstems. It was a toss up between the olive and the cinder red frame, I chose the olive because of the translucency of the frame which allows you to see the detail a bit better, but the colour on the cinder red frame is amazing.

One of my favorite frames that I own. With the arm being so wide, they're super comfortable. I was afraid with it being such a big frame, and me being a girl with a narrow face, that it would be too wide.... but no problem! I love the Cinder Red color, and you can never go wrong with Black Iridium.

i love large sunglasses and this model fits it to a tee. my problem though is the short ear stems, with some up-down head movement it feels like it'd fall off. it also has a lot of "holes" left when i wear it, not as snug as i'd like it to be. it doesn't have that wrap-around feel that my monster dog gives me... but appearance wise, these are a knock-out pair. :)
BullyVW -
Frame: Cinder
Lens: Black Iridium
You can't beat the color of this frame. It's dark and subtle enough to appear black, but it's much more of a deep red when in the right light. As always, the black iridum is a good choice. The frames are big, almost bulky, but look good on my fat head. The style isn't for everyone, but it's a good look and different from the others out there.

Frame: Black

I have the Ducati version of these. I popped out the ducati lens to preserve them and put in Amber iridium polarized. Style wise, these are excellent and are a great entry into the more style concious market .vs the sport oriented market. However, no compromises in the material or workman ship. They do tend to slid of the head easily if you are sweating. I had to install unob ear pieces from Flak jackets to keep them on my head when I play volleyball or go boating or fishing. Nice and lightweight, it's quite a change from my x-metals (Juliet). WOuld fit most mid to large heads well. However, most Asians would have some issues. I'm asian and I don't have really high cheekbones and these rest on my cheekbones as it is. It's pretty annoying when you're sweating to have these sitting on your cheeks. Again, 4/5 since it doesn't fit perfect
Dwcfastrice -
Frame: Ducati
Lens: Amber Black Iridium Polarized


Another long term review. I've had these for almost a year. I used these as fishing glasses for the first time last week. EXCELLENT lens. The polarization cut all the glare off the surface of the water and I could cast where other folks standing couldn't see fish. End result, 5 trout in about 30 minutes, all from a spot where the non-eyewear people said they saw no fish.

I added Flak Jacket Unobtanium ear pieces and these helped IMMENSELY. I would have lost these multiple times that day since it was hot and I was sweating. Without these, the glasses would have slid off my face.

Thus, the glasses rate only a 4 long term since the O-matter is VERY slippery when you sweat and tends to slide around your face (if you have a shorter nose bridge- Asian). If Oakley made Unob ear piece kits for them, that would be great, but... they don't. Good glasses-EXCELLENT lenses.

Although these are not due out yet, I had the opportunity to try them on today. They fit exactly like the Gen 1 Oil Drums and from the front you can't really tell a different at all. The arms still retain a similar shape but they have a new pattern on them similar to a crosshair pattern with inverted Os. The inverted Os are a nice touch and give much more style to the Oil Drums.
slackman -
Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Grey
I saw these for the first time today and there isn't a huge difference between the Gen 1 and the Gen 2s. The only difference is the O which almost looks embossed and the indentations on the sides are a little deeper and wider, which I think would make it harder to keep dust etc. off them. But overall if you like Oil Drums you will probably love the Gen 2s.
Dwcfastrice -
Frame: Grey
Lens: Black

Had the chance to try them on today. Initial thoughts, U-G-L-Y, you ain't got no alibi. But, with more consideration, it is a more edgy, industrial feeling that comes across when looking at these. The recessed O's are much cooler than the original Oil Drum. The fit is similar and the weight feels no different. I'm not a huge fan, but they may grow on me.

Matt SG -
Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Grey

I managed to try on a pair of the Gen 2 ODs in an optical shop on a 1-day trip to a neigbouring country in the north. First look, and there is NO difference except for the new recessed outline of the "O" icon in the industrial earstems.

Already owning a polarized version of the Gen 1 ODs (ABIP version), that I was coincidentally wearing for the trip, I immediately noticed the O-matter used for the Gen 2 ODs was thinner, less robust compared my Gen 1. Also, it seemed that the front orbitals seemed to rake slightly more outward at the top of the frame, and inward at the bottom of the frame. So they also adjusted the fit a little.... is that it?

Frankly, I prefer my Gen 1s with their screaming loud chrome square "O" logo on the earstems. Anyone can and WILL know it's an Oakley a mile away. This, I don't like. And the material is thinner? What's the reason behind that? Are O-matter prices getting more expensive? If it's simply for weight reduction, I don't have a problem with my Gen 1 OD's weight, at all. It's not heavy, period. And fit doesn't feel any different from my Gen 1.

So, basically, a v1.5, which, IMHO doesn't really improve anything at all, unless you're all for that recessed "O" logo. But, to be fair, I'll judge it for what it's worth, and not based on Gen 1, so 3 skulls for this new revision. A waste of time revising, IMHO, Oakley.

I got these over the weekend because my gas cans where lost during a trip. I have been looking at the Oil Rigs since the first gen. I liked the first gen but I love the second generation. The new logo makes the design stand out more. I have had Oakleys for as long as I can remember and I still love the oval logo but times change. Another thing I like about them versus the first gen is that they are lighter, for their size they feel much lighter. You forget they are there.

I own both the 1st gens and the 2nd. I still haven't made up my mind which one I like more. They both have their own unique styling. But the one thing I do like about the second is that the O on them seems to be a little bit more universally colored which allows any color frame to be paired with any lens.

Best oakleys to be released! I work security all over the world and these have traveled everywhere with me and have easily weathered the storm. I own all of gen two and working on gen 1. They are very difficult to find since they have been discon. If anyone knows where i can get them besides ebay the info woukd be greatly.appreciated. The only thing i would change is more polarized options on gen 2.
Dwcfastrice -
ONe of the best lenses out there. Intiailly, the Amber causes things in bright light to appear even more bright, so extremely bright conditions might not be the best conditions to wear these. However, I have gotten used to the way they "shade" the light and wear these exclusively in my Drums.

Excellent for mid light- cloudy- dusk conditions as the Amber brightens things ups.

Polarization is excellent. Great glare reduction. Makes it easy to see fish.

Wow! Oil Rig are becoming my favorites. Got this combo at the
O store because I didn't want another black Iridium. Needed something a little different. These scream "look at me" when you wear them. Very light and sturdy. Almost have to fight to get them to open. Fit is perfect nice wrap around here. Very little to no sun gets in. My face looks like a machine when I see them say in a mirror. The one piece lense really sets it apart. they are alot smaller in size then I thought. Online they look giant. Its good size, good size. The Ruby lense is beautiful. There is a touch of orange just depends what angle your looking at them. seems to be the farther side of the lense turns orange again depending on what angle. There is a blue/Grey tint when you look through them. A little brighter than Black Iridium. Overall Solid piece of equipmnet.

Last year I tried out the Riddle in the shops, the 'Cylops' style of lens is great, but the temples too tight and a bit feminime. I thought exactly at the time I wished they took the Oil Drum temples and replace it on the riddle.

This year, my wishes came true, as cheesy as it sounds. The design is spot-on this time. The temples fit superb. However its just the nose bridge that doesnt suit my asian face that much, so it kinda 'hangs' on my face.

Brown Smoke is alright, its the Tungsten Iridium lens i went for. Its just pleasing to the eyes and quite calm looking through.
4.5 because of the nose bridge issue.

sorry the other earlier review I got the lens wrong.

Lens: G40 Gradient/Grey

I tried both pairs on at a new O-store near the harbour. Hmm, what can I say...Let me first say that I totally dig the Oil Drum - I got the ABIP/Pol Blk model. If you're expecting an improvement from the Oil Drum lineage, be prepared to be a little disappointed. It's like the Oil Drum's earstems were cut and pasted onto the Riddle's lens. It looks like a bit of a mismatch. Like the review below says, the nose bridge is totally out-it sticks out and is only suitable for those with tall nose bridges (not me). Unlike the Oil Drum, which hugs my face very well and leaves little gaps, trying on the Oil Rig reminded me of trying on the Riddle (normal fit), where the bridge stuck out ridiculously far from my nose and it was just floating in mid-air. I wouldn't be caught dead in something like that.

Because of the one-piece frame design, the lens portion feels a little flimsy and bendable, sort of like a Dartboard, but definitely not as bad. The only resemblence to the Oil Drums are the industrial-looking ear stems. Maybe I set my expectations too high, with the Oil Drum possibly being close to my all-time favorite pair. So while the Oil Rig does looks good on paper, and it pictures, in reality, it doesn't do much for me. 2 skulls.

These things are huge. The lens coverage is amazing, despite a few blind spots at the edges. The text frame is a great, unique look. While it slightly obnoxious, it's working for me, and I'm very happy with the purchase.

I tried these on. These are very comfortable and completely seal out light.They are not too big. The have the look on my face of the Riddle sunglasses but felt to me less bulky. The look is not that of straight lenses across my face but lenses that curve a bit upwards.I don't particulary like this look on me but the comfort and sun protection is so good it should not matter. These are excellent sunglasses.

I just picked these up tonight. So far I am really liking the look and overall design. They are not as big as I thought they would be but the fit is tight and the text version is very cool looking. I would say you cannot go wrong with these at $115. Great style, great design and very light - not bulky at all.

I have also had the Oil drums and i never thought i would actually like a cyclops lens, but i guess i just find them comfortable because the wrap right around and cover your eyes completely so no sun can get in. If you are like me and cannot wear a really dark lens because it puts to much stress on your eye i reckon this is the way to go as well. I cannot wait to see what the artist series oil rig will look like :-).

This is the first pair of Oakleys I have bought in a while. I like the new lens tint and the frame design fits my face fairly well. My only complaint is they seem to be a bit tight right in front of the ear, but they will probably loosen up with use.

I didn't believe I spent 200+ bucks on a pair of sunglasses but after i got them in the mail I realized it was well worth it. Complete sun coverage, sick style,crazy comfortable, and its from Oakley. What more do you want? Oil Rig=sickest pair of glasses

Frame: Polished White (T-Pain)
Lens: Black Iridium

Definitely becoming one of my fav Oakley models. Looks Futuristic. Clean. Sharp. Smooth. & way Cool. Wraparound is awesome as always, no light leakages. From far, the lower part of the arms thats coloured black sure fooled a lot of people with the design. So sometimes people might think its a different model altogether.

Have to re clarify, the nose bridge only 'looks' like its hanging on my nose because it doesn't touch the center of my nose. But actually the sides of the nose bridge touches the sides of my nose perfectly and hold it in place. Not loose while wearing it nor does it touch my cheeks.

Would've given it a 5 but this time I think I miss Hydrophobic too much. Oakley should make all future models with Hydrophobic IMHO, makes a world of difference.

Oil Rig I think epitomizes Oakley's root of 'Mad Science'.

These shades are sick. I love everything about them, the frame is almost aviator style a little bit the way its one lens. the sides are sick as well. i like em cuz there goody but attractive. the text is the real kicker (although kinda hard to see from a distance) but they are comfortable, block out the sun and the lens are crystal clear. worth the 120$ i spent on them, i love them. then add to the fact t pain wears this model ices it.

Frame: black with silver text
Lens: black iridium

I love these glasses. They are very comfortable even without any unob pieces. The glasses fit me very well and i think that they would fit a lot of differant face shapes and sizes nicely.

I also have the white with text which is also nice, but i like this colorway a lot more. They are a lot more subtle. The text pattern looks awesome up close or under the lights in a display case, but when being worn it is not as noticable as the white pair.

if you havent yet tried on a pair of oil rigs you should. they are quickly becoming one of my favorite new styles.

Excellent style on an excellent frame. Enough flash to make it unique yet subtle enough to keep it classy.

Frame: Clear
Lens: Black mirror


Today I was at one of the mall kiosks which I have come to understand is owned by oakley and they had a limited edition pair of the Oil Rig. The frame is completley see through with a silver O on each side. The lenses are a mirror like black and you can see your face perfectly in them when you look straight on. I looked for a pic all over the internet and couldnt find one so I'm assuming these are fairly rare. The store said they only recieved two pair. I like them a lot, they're the ultimate stunner shades lol. After owning several pairs of the sport performance models like the half and flak jackets no unobtanium is a wierd feeling but they are comfortable none the less. The only downside is the clear frames let in a little unwanted sunlight. The cool factor is off the charts though, hopefully someone adds a pic soon.

Frame: Polished Black/Gun Metal "O"
Lens: Warm Grey


Fell in love with these about two weeks after I got my Gascans. Though I will always love the gascan especially mine in white, I needed something a little less flashy, but I still wanted to stand out. These are classy glasses, your not going to see too many other people wearing oil rigs, compared to seeing gascans everywhere. Extremely comfortable and great sun protection as they wrap right on your face almost goggle like. I would advise against getting black iridium, the pair i tried on in the store looked like ski goggles with black iridium because you cant see the middle divider behind the shield style lens. overall excellent frame. hard to decide what to wear each day, gascan or oil rig. i think im going to get hijinx next.

These are SICK!! They are a Sunglass Icon exclusive and only available at their stores. (Sunglass Designs, Sunglass Icon, Sunglass Club, Occhiali Da Sole, and Sporting Eyes.) It is a completly see through frame called Polished Clear. They have a silver "O" and the new chrome lens, also available on new Straight Jacket and Inmate. The Chrome lens is the newest premium lens from Oakley. It is basically the Titanium of the grey based lenses with its many coatings of iridium.

Wow. Where do I begin...well, the frames are crystal clear opposed to a milky clear or anything like that. The icons and the lenses are literally like mirrors. I can hardly think or anything to say other than these are a MUST for an true Oakley fan.

The price point is perfect too, not too high or anything. I hope they keep these exclusive.

Frame: Shadow Camo
Lens: Grey Polarized

A bit expensive but well worth the money. Full coverage meaning maximum view with no light leakages at all on my face. Lightweight. Shadow Camo is cool too, a bit unique. And the Grey Polarized is superb, only I still wished its hydrophobic and perhaps in Black Iridium.

Anyhow, whats this I read about Oil Rig Gen 2? Show it already.
And also, I think its high time that a Limited Edition Artist Series came out for the Oil Rig, the frame is certainly big enough to place any artwork on it.

Frame: Nicky Hayden (polished black)
Lens: Black Iridium

A few weeks ago I sold my old boring gascans and I got these sick Nicky Hayden oil rigs. They wrap nicely around my face and the full lense is a very nice addition. The pink O in the center is one of my favourite parts. A few more details is the signiture at the bottem of the lense and a number 69 on the inner side left arm. If you ask me it seems like everyone wants the T-Pains. But if you want something not as flashy but still brings tons of attention get these

One day I was looking at the O zone to see if they got any frog skins in. But what i do find is a very nice pair of the T-Pain signiture series. I love them as much as my Nicky Haydens. The designs on them are very cool including the fingure symbol, the teddy bear and his signiture on the left arm inside. The only thing
I dont like about these glasses is that everyone wants them. Still they are sick glasses and rival Nicky Haydens.

Over all very good sun protection, a little bit small on my face but im a big dude so it shouldn't matter to the average size person. I love the ear stems, just like my oil Oil Drums that got stolen but i love what Oakley has done with the "Rigs" having the toric lense look, very pretty, very eye catching. My wife doesn't know i have these yet, she'd be either pissed or jelous hehe. 4-5 bones IMHO.

I just bought the new holiday signature Oil Rigs and they are possibly the coolest shades I have ever had! The glasses cover 99% of my visual field, and the frames are really comfortable and well designed. One nice thing about the frames is that they lenses are not slanted downward like they are in the Oil Drums. If you own Oil Drums you probably know what I'm talking about. The Ruby Iridium lenses I can't say enough about. They have to be the coolest looking lenses by Oakley. If your in the market for a new pair of sunglasses check these out while you still can.

Frame: Clear
Lens: Chrome Iridium

One of the nicer pair of Square O's that I own. The Oil Rig brings to mind the good Ol' Razor Blade of yesteryear. The Clear/Chrome version is only available at Sunglass Icon. Extremely cool in terms of "Startle" factor. The clear frames make the lens appear to hang suspended from your face. These fit medium/large faces with lower cheekbones. Most Asians with higher cheekbones (like my wife) would feel these less comfortable. Replacement lenses are NOT avaialbe so you can't swap them in and out. According to the Oakley CSR I spoke with on the phone, I woudl have to send in the frames. They will not sell lenses seperately even though other colors are available through OCP. They fit well and are light. The only complaint I have (hence the 4 skulls) is the curvature, depending on the light, reflects back on the inside. I can see my own reflection on the inside of the lens while wearing them. Again, this may have to do with my face shape and where my eyes are in relation to the light and the reflected image. ALl in all, great glasses.

Frame: Shadow Camo

Frame: Polished Clear
Lens: Chrome Iridium

I just picked up my 2nd pair of Oil Rigs today, the Clear/Chrome from Sunglass Icon. These things are insane. I wear my custom Shadow/Titanium pair very rarely because of how crazy they look. I know big lenses are in but taking the Oil Drums and fitting a shield lens really takes them to the next level. The combination of industrial angles and the curve of the lens works well. It's a good thing I have a melon head because smaller faces need not apply.

The Clear/Chrome combo is really ridiculous but such a cool collectors item. Chrome Iridium has to be the most mirrored lens ever. Whoever thought clear frames was a good idea on sunglasses needs to get their head examined, but the cool factor alone makes up for it.

My only complaint is that the Titanium Iridium lens has a really soft outer surface. I'm obsessive about keeping my lenses clean and scratch free but after wearing them just a handful of times, they already have some noticeable scuffs on them.

Frame: Polished Clear
Lens: Chrome Iridium

I have been looking at Oil Rigs for a while now. I wanted something unique, so I was thinking custom, or T-Pain. The problem was, 1) I have no idea who T-Pain is (Maybe I've been living under a rock), and 2) I wasn't down with all the extra little "bits", like the fingers or bear. When I saw the Clear version, I decided that they were the ones and I started my hunt. I ended up calling all over the country to try and find a pair, and I ended up finding one for sale in the classifieds on this site, for half the price of what was average on ebay. They are beautiful. I wish I had two pairs, just so I wouldn't worry about wearing one of them. My only complaints are that the Chrome isn't dark enough to wear on a really sunny day, and that light shines through the frame. This is a "problem" on all translucent frames, though. Overall, great for style, mediocre for actual use.

Frame: Grey Smoke
Lens: Black Iridium

I managed to try on some Oil Rigs that a friend of mine had and they fit like a glove. My head is kinda large and round so they appear to wrap perfectly to the contours of my head. Also, they are so light and it feels like your not even wearing them. The grey smoke frame combined with the black iridium makes them look pretty classy but they won't turn too many heads. The only drawback I feel with these is their seems to be a little bit of give in the lens together with frame and hence there is always a little crackling noise when opening up the arms to put the glasses on or when push down on the bottom and top of the frame. I think this is normal though as it happens with the eyepatch aswell. Other than that, there shades are sweet as...

Bought these about 7 months ago and fell in love with them on the spot. They had the original black iridium lens in them but they had to go since they had a couple lIght scratches on them. Bought a set of fire iridium lenses for them, walked out of the store put them on and atleast 3 people stopped me just walking to my truck 600 feet away to ask me were I had bought them. These new fire lenses scream look at me and are certainly a WOW factor to everyone looking at you. Thank you Oakley for making such a bad ass pair of glasses. Kudos

It's weird, I didn't like the look of these for a while, but they really grew on me. Now that I own a pair I freakin love'em! They are comfortable, perfect fit, provide complete coverage, and look totally bad ass. I just can't wait to get more!

The one thing however, that for me is a must with a cyclops lens, is an iridium coating. I just don't dig grey one piece lenses where you can see the nose bridge of the frame through the lense. It ruins the effect for me. That being said, ruby on black here I come!

Lens: Ruby Iridium

I was pretty disappointed when I visited the Oakley website the other day and saw that they had sold out just as I had gathered the funds to purchase the O-Zone exclusive Oil Rig; but the other day I stopped in at the Cherry Creek O Store and by chance they had one pair so I picked them up. As a huge fan of the generation one Oil Rigs I was really happy to have this pair as well as the clear/chrome pair in my collection. The ruby lens is truly a beautiful thing to look at and is my first pair with this lens. For actual use I have only wore them a few times for fear of something happening to them but looking through Ruby Iridium is very easy on the eye in a varying amount of light conditions, even very bright. The text on the frame is also very intriguing since Oakley uses a random generator to produce the varying patterns so every one is unique. They are a very flashy and unique pair of Square-O's that I'm very happy to have acquired.

As the gascan model has increased in popularity, many similar models have appeared. The Oil Drum, and now the Oil Rig have followed that path. With larger stems, the scupting has had more flexibility, and the large shield lens covers more than enough of your vision.

They do tend to be on the heavier side, but O Matter keeps the weight managable. For an everyday pair, these fit the bill very nicely.
MadDogg -
Frame:Grey Smoke
Lens:Ruby Iridium

Got this custom colorway at the O store shortly after release. These have to be the loudest, most sophisticated Oakley's I'll ever own. The one piece Ruby color lense is my favorite. there is a just a very small hint of orange depending at what angle you look at it and can also have a deep full ruby color. Again depending on the angle. Lens has a blue tint with a splash of grey. I think the grey smoke frame suits this model perfectly. Black looks to bulky. text models aren't my thing. Clear, uh NO. Matte, ehh. any exclusive color, nah. Make sure to not let the O store people mount the lenses!!! They have not learned to use a microclear cloth instead of bare hands to mount the lens. It is very, very difficult to get their damn fingerprints off.
Dwcfastrice -
Frame: Clear
Lens: Chrome

Long Term review:
These have been one of the biggest disappointments that I have experienced with the O line.

They look Very cool. I can't deny that. I love the way they look. The clear and chrome go very well together.

CLear frames on a sunny day, where'd you get the best "pop" factor for the chrome lenses, DO NOT WORK. The clear frames channel sunlight and they rocket around the frames causing massive amounts of glare and reflections on the inside of the lens. These reflection essentially blind you to certain things.

I found that I spend more time with these up on my head than wearing them. They spend a lot of time in the case. Good to look at, not so good to wear on a sunny day.

I ordered these custom, and they are hands down my favorite sunglasses. They look pretty sick, like something out of the Terminator. Mine have the darkest lens available; perfect for protecting my eyes on those bluebird days on the boat or on the golf course. The polarized lenses make it even better. It's like seeing in tinted HD.

Okay, I got these fresh pair of o's for Christmas 09 . Definetely best pair of glasses EVER!I have owned a pair of polished black gascans before and I was not impressed with those at all! They didn't stay on my face, they scratched up and the leg always broke. When I bought my rigs I was scared they would brake because of them being so big and flimsy. But they are very durable and the polished white will not scratch up actually. Great pair of glasses, you will not be dizzapointed. Five stars

I have tried these on multiple times in the Oakley store, and I have to say that they are a less solid frame, than the first gen. Oil Rigs. I also do not like the new "cross hair" design that Oakley has done with there logo. when I heard about the new Oil Rigs, I was very excited, but I am a little disappointed that they were not as great as I expected. I would definitely recommend the first gen. ones over these.

I have to disagree with the above posts, I have all the colorways in the gen 1 and several in gen 2 and have to admit I like the gen 2 better. The 3-D icons give the glasses a much better profile when viewed from the front, and I think the frames feel tighter and more solid. They added stops to keep the arms from scratching the inside of the lens (a prob with gen1) and also made a small air pathway in the nosebridge to help ventilate from one side to the other to help stop fogging. The castle icons look much different than anything previously put out, but scream Oakley.

When I first saw these I thought "what's the point the Rig just came out. Why they are changing it?" Over time they grew on me. Now when I see an Oil Rig I it just looks plain and boring. The Oil Rig II is still not something I can wear every day but the new castle icon seems to fit the frame so much better. I now realize even more that Oakley stays on top because they are constantly trying to improve their product. These won't see as much daylight as my Flaks or Hijinx, but for the days when I'm feeling a bit saucy I break out my Rigs.

This frame has almost a universal fit. I've seen it fit guys with medium-small to quite large heads equally well. The frame is extremely comfortable and provides excellent coverage.

Good update Oakley. Keep the mad science coming!

I like these Oil Rigs better than the first generation. I'm not the biggest fan of the castle icon, but the new ones seem to fit better. I really do appreciate the evolution to a cleaner T-Pain signature version. When it came time for me to buy my first Oil Rig, it was between the first T-Pain and the Polished Clear. The polished clear won, but only due to the black "underside" on the white frame. The new T-Pain has a beautifully clean look to it (aside from the bear and "ballgazer"), and when I saw it, I had to have it. On a side note, my wife thinks I'm weird for not having a clue as to who T-Pain is...

I rather liked the icons on the first gen, and was a bit bummed when these were what I was making a custom set with. I feel a little cheated I couldn't mess with the color of the icon. I love how the huge area of the rig lets the Shadow Camo stand out (wait...camo's not supposed to stand out). Same would go for the Text frames.

The good is that this rig provides PLENTY of coverage, but not in an obnoxious way. Still got some style with it. Good for you folks with the longer lashes. Nothing obstructing sight either.

All that said, I have noticed that it is hard to keep them on my head when not looking through them. They fall off and stretch open, as has been said before. Every now & then the frames creak against the lens.

These are hands down my favorite frame that Oakley makes. The coverage is awesome, the O symbol is definitely unique, and the frame is extremely sturdy. The holiday frost blue models are pretty sweet. I actually took the lens out of those and put them in a black frame and they look even better. I am not a huge fan of the T-Pain signatures, but I think thats just because I don't like white sunglasses. I would also like to see them release these with a titanium polarized lens. But overall great all around shades.

Not a fan of the new "castle logo". The original Oil Rig does seem pretty tame by comparison, but such a drastic change to the logo is confusing. I'm glad that Oil Rig and Oil Rig II lenses are compatible. Thanks for the backwards compatibility.

Frame: Shadow Camo
Lens: Titanium Iridium


Super light o-matter and unique styling make these great shades and the newer sculpted design and logo make the II's a nice upgrade. The frame wraps around the head well, fitting securely through most movement and are surprisingly comfortable (although some padding would be welcome) fitting me like a glove. While the stems stay opened well they do become slightly more loose over time especially when closed, unlike with metal hinges. The uni-lens is unique, with great lines and nice large coverage although not quite as much on top. I would recommend a darker, more sublte lens because they look much better in this large single design IMO. A great pick for those who like larger type frames with a modern look.

A fairly pleasant, mellow green that would go well with military camo but not much else.
bong -
As of this time they're only offered on the Warden frames. When they came out I was worried that they would be more of a lightish Army-type Olive Drab color, but Oakley's olive finish is more of a cross between Olive Drab and Gunmetal; not overly green but green enough to be noticed. Also, the finish of the metal is really nice; there's a slightly brushed metal quality to it, and with a slight metal sheen.
Ed -
Great drab green color. Like other crystal frames, it can appear almost black under low light, but the color shines through when viewed under brighter conditions.
Ian -
This color is the main reason I picked up the Monster Dog in the Flouro Camo pack. I missed the color in the custom program, so I had no other recourse. I dig olive. I'm a military guy, so it pretty much goes with everything.
TERRORISM -
Olive is an interesting color, similar to Algae. Its translucent green hue looks good, but there are a limited number of lens options that go well with it.

Celicagame -
A great frame color. Looks black when wearing it but if you look through it it looks better. I had these in my oil drums, bought them just for this color. But it doesn't look good in anything else. In my opinion it doesn't look great on monster dogs. Wish they would use it more.
Rick -
It like looking a tacky 70's ashtray made of jade stone. I love the theory behind it, and the gold accent band really adds some flavor. It's not a colorway that will appeal to many, but I can see this finding a few fans since it so retro chic. Looks like something a 70's casino manager might wear.
Ijon__Tichy -

Looks really nice on the picture and when you look at it while holding in the hand, but when I wear it.... boring grey. I'm a bit disappointed.
LEX7 -
I love all the tortoise frames, sadly this doesnt look as cool as it does in the pic, in real life its very dark so the tortoise patern is not obvious but it is still a great colour that should be used more often.
slackman -
These are really cool frames if your into the slightly transparent frames. The only thing I don't like about them is that the pics online make the frames look more like camouflage. Which they really don't look like at all.
Ian -
I got it on the Gascan because it is a very unique, uncommon colorway. The light shines off of it and while being worn, it shines like any other dark frame. If it were a matte finish, I think it would be a lot more noticeable.

It seems wierd to say that Oakley really did something different in amking the oo in that they are a "normal" looking pair of eyewear. For a company that seems to thrive on creating unique styles, the oo actually seems very much like a traditional, reserved style. That's why I like it. It's something different for the Oakley brand, and completely acceptable for the business world. I usually get "those are Oakleys?!?!" comments when I wear them.

Comfortable, well built. I really like the barrels on the earstems. Just lovely!

Again I have to agree with oogie. These are such a classic looking stlye. Very dressy. They look great as Rx frames. I'm actually kinda surprised that Oakley didn't have them as an Rx frame instead of shades. They barrels on the earstems are what really set them apart. The only minor drawback is that they are very flat across the front so a lot of sun leakage from the side. For those of you that like the Food Network, Alton Brown wears this frame in an Rx from time-to-time.

I really like these - interesting stying, good quality on frames and lenses. Not to everyones taste, and fit is very subjective - on some days they look good on me, others they don't. But all in all, a very nice pair, which is different from most Oakleys you will see .

Normally I buy Oakley's for cycling, but I managed to find a used set of these and picked them up. I've really enjoyed them and they fit my face perfectly.

These are my vintage style Oakleys with a bit of a John Lennon going on about them! I have 3 pairs of Oakleys including these, a Juliet in carbon with custom G26 (Boy do they look amazing!) and Hatchet Mercury with VR28 Black. Remarkably I picked these up off ebay from one seller called (Huneymonkey) from Florida who stocks hard to find rare Oakley sunglasses. I bought them 27 th April 2009. They arrived today to me here in Western Australia and I really like them. Amazing achievement for Oakley to have an old timer style amd much welcomed. I will be holding onto these as I was lucky to get them new when they been discontinued so long! Good work by Mike Jordan he did well! Love the carbon fibre on the frame. I also like that part Johnny Lennon look! Quality and that laser etched O on the lens looks legendary!

Great Sunglasses and a custom. They were originally Gold Oxide frames I put these together by buying an RX frame in silver and swapping the lenses from the Gold oxide frame into them. It's looks great! I prefer a lighter color frame with a dark lens like Leather Gold Iridium. This match goes great! Love that Lennon styling and how Oakley has a vintage style like the Raybans!.

Wow! These look simply amazing Vintage appeal! Just got these from a one special USA Genine Oakley customizer! This color combo was never released by Oakley but it should of been! It is 100% Genuine custom. These look way cool in the G26 and also dressy enough to wear out! I can wear these in overcast or golf as the G26 has a rosy redish base with that green mirror. Will hang onto this rare asset for as long as I can!

When I saw these on the Oakley website days after they were released I had to have them. The lens looks amazing in the sun. I love the Pewter frame it looks very very cool with this great lens.
Despite them being in the wire family they are very comfortable and they fit well even during sport.
the only problem is the lens is very small so they don't block out all of the light as the wrap around models do.
Landseer -
Frame: Platinum
Lens: Leather Gold Iridium

I've had these forever. They are certainly a different style than most. They fit further out on the face and have very small lenses and are completely flat across the front. They let in more light than the Why 3s which are similarly sized and also flat. They are very different than the usual form-fitting Oakleys I'm used to, but they certainly have their niche. They are a great more formal, "going out" type glasses. They do fold completely flat, which is nice, and I do have some problems with them blending and then being loose when worn. They could have benefited from a spring hinge. A nice, different style with which to mix things up. They are on TV, too. I noticed that Food Network’s Alton Brown wears an RX version and back in the “old days” co-host Art Mann on Wild On! sported the silver/blue iridium combo, but who was looking with Jules Asner or Brook Burke standing next to him. People seem to notice them and I often get questions about them. The composite section on the ear stems seems to get noted and adds a little uniqueness. 4/5 because of bending.

Frame:Pewter
Lens:Red Iridium

I bought these with the intention to us them as Rx glasses. As Rx glasses they are great. They are not the traditional wrap around design that are on most oakleys. With the more traditional sunglasses design you do have more sunlight exposure from the sides. Now I use them as my everyday sunglasses since they fold flat so I can fit them in my suit pocket.
Munkfish -

Tick -

These, like the other OO's are super light & comfy but they're mostly style over function. Being so small & flat they can let a lot of light in the sides. The Earstems are also very prone to bending if you're not careful. They look great, however, & the lens colors look beautiful.

I only obtained mine from one ebay seller in the United States they sent them to me in Australia. I won't mention how much they cost me but it was quite a bit!

Prior to owning a set of the Split Jackets with OO Black Polarized lens my personal favorite was the VR28 Black Iridium Polarized lens. The OO Black Polarized is now my absolute favorite. The tint of the lens is more rose/pink than the VR28 which in comparison has more of a brown tone. The iridium coating is very strong, and appears just like a standard black iridium polarized lens. But from the viewer's perspective, it's that nice G40 base rather than the gray base. Despite the light transmission rate being the same, it does appear a bit lighter than the VR28 Black iridium polarized.

Huge thumbs up on this lens!
TigreKahuyan -
One of Oakley's latest lens options released April 2010. These are my first pair of Oakley Polarized lenses on my OO X-Squared (OO Black Iridium Polarized). It has great clarity and contrast with the benefit of HDO Hydrophobic/Oleophobic (very easy to clean), polarized lenses and black iridium coating for banishing that annoying glare. Works great while driving, doesn't interfere with my car's dashboard LCDs but still blocks glare from the outside world. It is the just right lens from where I live in, hot and sunny weather, even when it's overcast it's still hot and blinding as hell. But these lenses are just too cool for that, if you can't beat the heat, you just have to try one on.

Two thumbs up for this lens as Oakley never ceases to amaze me.
Derick -
I returned these the day I got them for my jawbones. the lens isn't dark and looks like a brown purple. very disappointed.
kernell -
I've been using oakleys for 15 years and always happy. My last adquisition are a pair of black jawbones with yellow/red iridium polarized lenses, awesome for snowboarding but ugly and in my opinion not enought iridium cover. So i was between the vr28 black iridium polarized and the OO blackiridium polarized. The later is, in my opinion, way better! The polarization works awesome, the contrasts are better and is the closest i could find to the old bronze titanium mirror wise i had in my old mad dogs. I only can recomend this lenses, they are really awesome!
Jon -
I have been hunting these down for a long...long...time. Until recently, they've been unavailable as replacement lenses and the shades they were in, I had no interest for. I FINALLY grabbed a pair for the Flak Jacket and the Fuel Cell. I believe the Fuel Cell version though is the OO Grey Polarized. I may be wrong, but there doesn't seem to be any OO Grey Polarized thread yet.

Anyways, these lenses are great! They're subtle like the VR28 Black Iridium, but have a more rosy color with the G40 base. I already expressed how much I love the VR28 Black Iridium, and these are just amazing. These do seem rather light though, in terms of light transmission. I don't think they're at 10%, and the grey one is at least around the 18% range, but they do the job and they do it well! Amazing lenses. Very satisfied.
Jon -
Just wanted to add, the OO Grey Polarized does not hide your eyes what so ever. Just wanted to throw that out there. And I re-looked through both the Vr28 and the OO Grey Polarized, and the Grey is actually much lighter in contrast compared to the VR28. Kind of like a Warm Grey Polarized lens basically. Still great!
KEPA -
I think it the 00 black iridium polarized are great lens, not so dark as the black iridium, polarized so you avoid the glare but it has like a bit dark rose colour (not black base). They are good lens. But one year after the purchase they started appear some bubles in the edges of the lens near the frame. My girlfriend had another grey polarized lens in her fives and also happened the same. Has Oakley come down since Jannard sold it?
Had anyone any troble like this with the polarized lens?

This is my 5th pair of oakleys but my first experience with this lens and i absolutely love them!! i have then in my scalpels and they are my favorite pair of sunglasses i have ever owned. no bitches just perfect for me all weather. i wear them driving, on the beach, fishin, shootin, and any where else i go.
kernell -
to John: I dont know about the OO Grey Iridium, but when i wear my Jawbones with my OO Black Iridium Polariced my eyes are completely hidden, they are mirrors to the outside world. :-)
equetefue -
Lens is great. It has (almost) the look of the black iridium but without the grey base. You have a faint nice rose look thru them and is very contrasty. Compare to my VR28 Polarized they are way darker (10% LT vs 15%) but you also add the benefit of the iridium coating which helps cover your eyes.

I will probably use the OO Black Polarized Lens for everything for except driving. I personally find the brown base of the VR28 Polarized lens brighter and more contrasty thus IMO better suited for driving.

One last thing to note is that the OO BIP shows less "poalrization rainbows" than the VR28 Polarized lens.

Love this lens !!
maxg -
A fantastic lens!!!
I prefer these much over the popular and highly rated VR28 Black Iridium Polarized!

As user "linkbeat" mentioned before, the OO B.I.P. appear a bit lighter than the VR28 B.I.P. But the OO B.I.P are bit more easy on the eyes due to the more subtle (G40) tint, and they have IMHO a much stronger visual enhancement: the best way I can describe it - I know it sounds stupid - is that 3D becomes even more 3D! What I mean is that objects suddenly separate themselves much more apart from the background.

These is my favorite lens option from Oakley (close second: Tungsten Iridium Polarized and Shallow Blue Polarized, then VR28 Black Iridium Polarized).
The Game -
Got these in the YSC Batwolf and I was looking foward to seeing what the hype was all about, I was not impressed. I see that many people compare this to the VR28 and I very much prefer that then the OO's. While I agree that the OO is lighter the VR28 just does it more for me. The OO seems very bland and dull. It is a good alternative for those who are tired of the greys and black iridiums.
PaulT00 -
A great lens for driving. I have them in my Whiskers. Got them as replacement lenses after leaving the glasses on the roof of the car... glasses survived, lenses (ordinary black iridium polarized) didn't. I ordered replacements and the shop messed up and got me the OO b.i.p. instead. Wasn't convinced initially, but they've grown on me. I wear them for driving even on quite dull days or late into the evening as the reduction in glare, reflections and haze makes these super comfortable for long drives and the increased contrast from the rose base tint means that they're very restful on the eyes. This is not a flashy lens, it's all about functionality.
brewc -
I bought a pair of Fives Squared with these and agree with Jon can see your eyes there is no Black Iridium to them it's just a grey polarized. A ripoff in my eyes haven't tried any for Jawbones
LEX7 -
I have these on my OO Square Wires. very cool lense to be looked at in but not very special to look through you get a pale grey tint when your outside, not very protective either.
dan-E -
One of the nicer blue lenses to look at. The colors go from light blue to a bright purple and stand out even more in the sunlight. Depending on the light, you can still see the wearer's eyes, despite the Iridium coating. Nothing really special to look through, as they're very much like the Grey lens to look through, but just a smidge darker.
lucky13 -
Love the colors in the iridium mirror... Nice greenish-blue centers surrounded by a deep blue with purple edges. Hides your eyes in most conditions, and even then only the outline of your eyes are visible. Great lens for bright conditions -- similarly rated to emerald iridium in transmission rate (14% vs 13%).
frankie4fingers -
YEAH, this is blue and in such way all should look. in combination of carbon frames, it's only incredible. grey base but better solved than black iridium
Tick -
Have these in the OO Square & they do look great. Kind of average to look through.
dj.MLYT -
These are my favorite lenses that I own for my Juliets right now. They are a really nice blue/purple hue and in many light conditions allow for the outline of your eye to be seen, but nothing more. I really like them alot and wear them most of the time except on really really bright days where I'll wear my black iridium ducati juliets.

As a fashion lens they do their job perfectly, so to me complaints like them not offering much light protection dont really matter since they weren't so much intended to be a super bright light condition lens, but rather something cool to be looked at in.
sparra -
I don't own the lens, but they look bloody cool from the outside, so I wish I did. Though Alexis' comment does concern me, perhaps I'd prefer straight blue iridium.
addicted2o -
beautiful blue when looking at it with a hint of purple depending on which angle you look at it...looking through it is not that bad either although it just makes everything seem grey...i like it better than ice
jumpman73 -
Very very nice blue color with these. The hint of purple make these look real deep. I have them in my Ichiro Carbon frames and the combination is awesome.
Rick -
We've got Ice Iridium and we've got Blue Iridium. And then, we have OO Blue Iridium. To me, the OO Blue Iridium represents an era of the Blue Iridium in which the color of the lens is more deep blue, almost purple, but there are Blue Iridium lenses that I have owned that have similar tones. AFAIK, the OO Blue Iridium and Blue Iridium are the same lens. The designation came from the fact that this color first became available in a OO Wire. This confusion is what makes me deduct one mark.
ball5out -
this color lens is close to a regular blue iridium and an ice polarized. the OO blue does have abit of purple and green. great protection as well for ordinary summer days as it only has 14% light transmission. I like it coupled with a polished frame juliet with blue unobtaniums. Looks classy
flyer -
A very flashy deep blue with a dash of sapphire; quite unique.
Used to great effect in the 00 Wire line, and then abandoned. Pity.
TERRORISM -
Very similar to Blue Iridium, OO Blue Iridium boasts a deep blue, seeming almost "purple" from certain angles. A rare find, this lens pairs well with nearly every frame color and provides excellent protection during the most intense light conditions.

xtremehardy388 -
My girlfriend has these and in her pockets. I've used them once and they seemed okay. They're a different type of lens and they offer nice contrast to regular sunlight. Probably good for running/jogging.
american image -
michael jordan on a box is very nice . Oakley's - former -boardmember designed them so he got his credit by being on this box
TERRORISM -
Although I don't care much for the OO, this box definitely stands apart by boasting MJ's image. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if these boxes actually had value by themselves 20 years from now. In short: great for display, especially with the original glasses to match.

Frame: Black Chrome
Lens: G30

Great for occasions when X-Metals or M-Frames are not appropriate. The G30 lenses work well for anything from overcast to sunny conditions, and the Black Chrome is beautiful. This color combination uses a carbon fiber temple augmentation (the little accent between the hinge and ear sock), which looks very sharp.
kingphilbert -
Frame: platinum
Lens: leather gold/rx

Oakley's first stab at the fashion market and a damn good one at that. I found the OO and OO Square to be too much lens but the A and E were excellent. I went with the round lens and only wore them with the Leather Gold lens for a short while before the became an Rx. Definitely a stylized frame, the barrels on the arms were a great touch, all the little sculpted divots and the "torpedos" on the hinge ends were cool.

I don't think Oakley did anything wrong on these and they were a great wire frame. For as thin as they look they were very strong with a great fit. Snug all the way through.
Ed -
Frame: Pewter
Lens: Gold Iridium

Another lens-swapping project. Although the OO Red lenses were pretty nice looking, I didn't much care for the gray tint, so I changed to Gold Iridium. This frame color has black tortoise temple accents. Like the rest of the OO line, the left lens has a little "O" in the corner to let everyone know that they are Oakley's.

Frame: Black Chrome
Lens: G30

Got these for not too much at the Vault. I wore them on the way home, but after that they became a collector's piece. For a model that Oakley wants to forget, it's not too bad. The earstems are interesting, but the flat lens look doesn't match up with the other models. Perhaps with the newer fashion market, these would sell better. They sure are trying to offload enough of them now.
fin7 -
Frame: All
Lens: All

Not for exceptionaly sunny days as they don't give enough protection around the sides. But that can be said for all the OO range.
Pewter oo red is stunning,
Each have different coloured temple augmentations. Though this varies:
Black chrome - black carbon fibre effect,
Pewter - mottled effect,
Platinum - brown carbon fibre effect
Silver - transparent brown or green
Unobtainium has the OO logo embossed
Superb for occassions when style is required

Seeing as these are discontinued, the only place I can acquire these are ebay. Couple of years ago they would go for $20-$40. Now $70-$130. easily still worth the money, but $20-$40 was a fabulous price for such high quailty glasses.Suprising how different they look on, with the variety of frame colours and lens options.

These are my RX frames for when I don't have my contacts in. They have only lasted a decade, 3 sets of earsocks and 2 RX changes. These are so comfortable and still in style, I refuse to wear any other frame. Well...maybe a pair of Why's after these finally crumble.

SJJ28 -
I got these lenses in my new eyepatch 2... I d really rather have the VR28, as these are used almost exclusively for deep sea fishing... They're definitely better than the regular grey polarized, or the black iridium polarized, but not as good as the VR28. The color of the lens is similar to the VR28, so its a close second...
LEX7 -
I have these on my OO A Wires. As with the OO Blue Iridium very cool lense to be looked at in but not very special to look through you get a pale grey tint when your outside, not very protective either, But worth it for the way it looks on the outside.
Ijon__Tichy -
I have them in my OO's and they're like +red ... but they look purple all the way. Very nice! I think these were used in X-Man instead of rubys ;) ! But the base teint is boring.. the same like +red - grey.
Tim cooper -
Love these they appear raspberry red looking when you take them off your face. But otherwise a blueberry grey colour when on the face which looks very cool and sporty. I find view is good through the base, not really for driving only really for bright summer days. During Summer these you will make you look like Mr Cool I guarantee (no wonder Michael Jordan designed OO red!!!) I have titanium iridium for dull days or driving in my second pair of oaks (my brown hatchets) and use these for winter darker days. But these OO reds are great for bright summer.
Ed -
I had these on my Pewter OO E before changing them to Gold. The Iridium is purple-red while the base tint is plain grey. Not a very exciting lens at all.

Without explanation , belt like you're not wearing lenses, or better with a high contrast lens and clear to see. Like in city drive or run all the day. My Favorite lens. Open my eyes to see things of Oakley is Unique. Can create more with this concept.
The Game -
I'll start off by saying I'm not a fan of the OO series of polarized lenses the company has put out. I don't like the g40 base and wish they would've stuck with blue tint of the original +red iridium. That said this is probably the best lens in the OO series. Great for riding on pavement and for casual wear.
Tako -
I have an oakley jawbone with 3 other lens (including: vented yellow, vented black iridium, and black persimmon transitions)besides the OO Red Iridium Polarized. Everyone has their preference, but the red iridium are my personal favorite of the 4. I love the polarization, and the tint. They look aesthetically pleasing to me as well. I wouldn't suggest them to anyone because you really should try them on before you buy.
patcatuk -
I got this lense as well as a persimmon lense with a polished black jawbone with red pivot and metallic red logo. This is a high contrast lense. The polarization works well, removes a massive amount of glare, but, when looking at LCD screens the colours are a little strange with a recurring rainbow lines and looking at airport flight details on LCD screens the polarization makes them unreadable.

The amazing thing is when used for driving, the dashboard reflection on the windscreen is removed completely as well as all the glare from outside of the car. I even want to use this lense for night driving because of its ability to remove most of the sparkle from on coming headlights, but, the lense blocks all the light reflected off the road so you cannot see the road.

For use in the UK, Hong Kong and anywhere else with mostly grey overcast skies the 00 shines. It only shows itself to be not dark enough only during very sunny noon hours. Increases contrast and cheers up the dull light with its pinky rose behind the lense view. For use in the tropics, the sweet spot hours are 6am-10am and 2pm-6pm. Your eyes are relaxed during these hours, the brighter 10am-2pm you end up squinting and wishing that the tint was darker, but, it is certainly useable and better than no lense at all. I am very happy with this lense and especially as a package combination with persimmon lense. It is certainly more interesting than my other choice a jawbone with a black iridium and yellow lense combination.
distaste -
I bought a pair of jawbones with polorized fire iridium lenses. The hands down best glasses and lenses I have owned yet. Being able to open your glasses up and clean the whole lens and clean the edeges is Oakleys best invention. I hate it when dirt gets into the corners and it takes forever to clean out. A minute and my whole glasses and frames are spotless. The money might be more that I wanted to spend, but it didnt take long before I didnt care how much I spent due to the fact I never take them off in the day and noticed the huge difference everytime there is a glare somewhere. Other cars windows always throw a nasty glare and it really takes it away. Three words.. Over the Top.
arvind -
These were part of my first oakley glasses , the jupiter squared , they are absolutely amazing to look through and to look at. They are excellent for even driving in low light conditions , and nothing can beat oakley's polarization . Eyes are definitely visible at most angles but tht adds to the looks because people are more comfortable with conversations that way . Only disadvantage is that here in India it gets pretty hot and extremely sunny so the lens does not help much in an afternoon sun and i still need to squint a bit !

The design of these glasses is very nice and they are very comfortable to wear. The only problems with them is that they are so small that on most people they look more like reading glasses and they only cover about half of the optical field. They are also very easily bendable. So overall it has the comfortable Oakley fit but its a bad Rx design.

They are made specially for the OO range and have plastic icons on the top and a flat bottom. These are the only oakley case I take out with me cos they are so light and small.
I dont know why oakley havent made more special cases for individual ranges.

A great case, but severly limited in it's use. So few glasses can fit in this case, but maybe that is what makes it so special. hmmm..

Lost my last one and was really pleased to find another at SGH.
Fits perfect in the pocket, felt lined. Could be even smaller for my liking. Like Lex says specially designed cases for all my Oakley would be ideal. Nice icon too

bought it for my a-wire 2.0, fits perfect, even for my fours ;) like it much better than the "normal" small soft vault because of the flat bottom

Frame: Black Powder/Gold Oxide
Lens: Leather Gold Iridium/RX clear

Nice, classy design, with interesting touches like carbon fiber or tortoise accents on the tube-like sculpted ear stems. Another nice touch is where the end of the ear stems blends in with the hinge and ends in a torpedo-like projection on the frames. Really nice design! The OO Square lenses are big enough for larger faces, and the square looks better on me than the OO ovals. The OOE and the OOA were way too small for me. My first pair was a Black Powder RX frame (had removable clear lenses with the RX logo printed on one of them) and I had my prescription put in. They look stylin' yet understated as eyeglasses, and unique enough to be Oakley's. My second pair is the Gold Oxide/Leather Gold Iridium combo, but had the lenses swapped with the Black Powder ones since I wanted the tortoise accent with the RX clear lenses. The Leather Gold Iridium lenses are great; dark enough for sunny days but provides excellent detail and contrast... great for driving.

I don't know if this is a common problem with other OO frames, but my Black Powder frame (which did see a lot of use though) is disintegrating at a rapid rate. the finish is rubbing off the frames, leaving a rough, textured unfinished metal on the ear stems on the frames. It becomes painful when hair gets caught on this unfinished part. My old pair of E Wires (older than the OO Square) still looks brand new, while the OO Square Black Powder are definitely showing its age.

Great glasses for when you need a more formal pair of oakleys.
These are one of the pairs that I use when at work (I have to wear a suit)
The OO Blue Iridium lens looks very stylish and looks spectacular when the sun hits them. The blue of the lens perfectly matches the bright silver frames which makes these a great pair of stylish oakleys.
Fit wise they are practically identical to the OO A wires. The only difference is the shape of the lens.

Frame: Black + Carbon
Lens: +Red

I like these as my "classy" Oakleys. Very subtle in style compared to most models, these look good with more dressy clothes. The lenses are small, so they don't provide teh wraparound coverage of something like a Juliet. I particularly liked the carbon fiber accent on these frames. Overall, they work well. My primary complaint would be that the earstems are a touch short for my head, so they don't quite have the grip that some other models do and can fall off easier. But, these are not designed for sporty activities, so I can forgive that.

I remember when these suckers first came out in the late 90's. I wanted a pair at that time since most of my Oakleys at that time were "over the top" color combos. I finally got my hands on a brand new pair and I can't say enough good things about it. It is unique in that it doesn't adhere to the Oakley "shock and awe" approach as demonstrated in many models. It is subtle, classy, and studious. The workmanship is top notch and they are helped further by the fact that Michael Jordan was the inspiration behind them. AFAIK, MJ was a board member at the time and complained that he had no Oakleys that went well with a suit. Voila! The OO is born. Now discontinued, a spot in the Oakley Hall of Fame should be reserved for this pair.

Love the classic style of this model. seems timeless and would never go out of style. not too many people in the Philippines are aware that his "Airness" has his own line of Oakleys and many of them are amazed once they get to know it. I'm thankful I got these and they're one of my longest lasting pair of Oakleys I have. Peace out.

Great glasses, very comfortable, and more classy than any other style they had.
Best thing is the limited production, you don't see too many people walking around with them. I've never met anyone else with the same pair.

An interesting matte purple finish for the ladies. It does come out a bit pinkish, so we manly men can't really get away with wearing it.

this actually looked pretty cool in the pictures but when i saw it in a store it was a disapointment.
still a nice frame colour a sort of grey violet.
so if your thinking about getting a pair make sure you see it in person before you buy cos it does not look like the pic.

An unusual colorway with an interesting name, Overcast is a purple "pastel" hue. Depending on the lighting/photography it may look somewhat attractive, but seeing it in person provides the best perspective. Not one of the better colors that Oakley has introduced IMO.

I saw the overthetops on the Oakley website, and despite being incredibly ridiculous, I still had to have them. They only had Silver frames for a while, but when Blade II came out, they made a Black/Ruby model. I got that for Christmas and wear them out on certain occasions. They will definitely get you some notice, so be warned. But if that's your intention, then so be it. The frames below the lenses, tend to give you 'bags' under your eyes if you wear them too long, so I find it's best to wear a hat under them. It does look cool under a hat though, or if you pull your hair through the top and just let the glasses pop out of your head. They also will not fall off no matter what you do.

Frame: Black
Lens: Ruby

i had the overthetop for a time and yeah, i did get bags under my eyes as well. the pads (which were made of soft, spongy material instead of real rubber unobtanium) weren't thick enough for the frames to "float" away from my face, the bottom of the frames would actually sit on my cheeks, creating the bags under my eyes. it got especially annoying when it got hot and the bottom of the lenses would fog up. i guess you'd have to have the perfect head shape for these to work, but they are definitely great attention getters. too bad they didn't fit me at all, but i'm giving them two stars for the outrageous design alone.

Crazy glasses, bought these on impulse and haven't really worn them too often. They're very comfortable and I don't have the problem with them marking under my eyes but I do get marks on my forehead from the pads if I wear them for hours at a time. I get a very mixed response from people when I wear them. It's a love them/hate them thing it would seem.

It's pretty obvious what Oakley was doing when they made these bad boys. Personally, I find them horrid, but what's to say I don't all of a sudden get sucked into the madness that is the OTT? I remember the USA Track Team at Sydney rocking these on the podium. Or, am I imagining things? Anyway, anyone picking these up is doing so because they like the idea of being different and it's obvious that was the impetus behind the design so that gives it full marks in my eyes. I do think they look and feel a little cheap though.

My brother has these and I think their only use is to look good in a collection.
They are very uncomfortable and look really really wierd.
they look ok if you have a shaved head but any more hair than that and you look just plain silly.
One day I think im gonna get the black/Ruby ones but just for the collection and maybe halloween LOL.

Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Ruby

These things are ridiculous! But I like 'em for that fact. Definitely a collector's item but not practical for genuine use outdoors. There's no practical way to store or transport these. I normally keep my hair cropped short so they don't "float" over my head too much but if I get lazy and let my hair grow out a little bit, they hold kinda funny. At least on me, the two pads above the lenses rest on my brow and if I make any kind of facial expression other than stone-cold stoic, they get crooked. This is a great example of Oakley's radical design thinking and why we love them so much.

If only they made these in a non circular lens shape. Totally awesome concept. They would be great for hanging out in the snow. You could put your beanie right over them. I'm not a big fan of the circular lens like the Mars but if Oakley had put these out in a juliet/xx shape lens I would've cop these for sure.
oogie -
Frame: Silver & Black

Simply for the radical design, these are some awesome shades to own. Pretty comfortable, but the pad marks on your forhead are to be expected after wearing it any length of time. Totally different, they attract attention. Even when carrying them around, I get plenty "What is that?".
Now if they can just create a cool ballistic case, I'll be a happy overthetop camper!

Rare as all hell. According to Chris at Customer Service, the Blade 2 Signature Series of glasses (well, the left lens of the OTT anyway) contain one of if not the rarest lens that Oakley has ever produced and offered to the public. According to another rep, there were only 500-600 of the OTTs produced which makes something like the Fluoro Monster Dogs and 0.3 seem abundant.

I've actually got two pairs of these!
They do rock but you can only wear them when doing something active (they look rather 'naff' if just walking along the street shopping).
You also have to be bald / very short hair as mentioned before.
Last thing - be careful when wearing these in the sun as i used them skiing and ended up with two horns on my forehead (a result of pale patches against the surrounding suntan!).
Enjoy these rarities!

Very unique design and nice, big lenses but the fit could be better. And, like allready said, they fog up very easy. But hey, it's a collector piece 8).

EDIT: I forgot to say that they are very comfortable, the "over the top" idea should have taken over some more, but the hairstyling may be the main problem that you don't see people rocking overthetops on the street.

These only look really good if you don't have any hair, or you wear a beanie underneath.

After a while your foreheard/eye brows will start to feel pressure and get red marks.

But who cares? These are completely unreal! They're great for event occasions, like going to sporting games or parties.

Grab one before they're all gone!

My first visit to HQ is when I bought these, before they were released. Probably my most exciting purchace of Oakley. So many compliments I can't list them all. They are the 1st Gen. so no forehead pads, but no big deal. Everyone wanted a picture of me with them on. So I'm in about 30 peoples family photo albums with some guy they meet on the beach.

I bought these knowing I would most likely never wear them, and at the same time knowing that only a true fan would buy them. One of the most recognizably Oakley pair of Oakleys made. I first saw them in an Oakley catalog a long time ago, and remember thinking "I would never buy those" but boy was I wrong. The thing that made me decide to buy them initialy was seeing them being worn in the Olympics by an American Vollyball player. They dont look to good on me but I have to say, they look really nice on my shelf with all of its fellow Oakley compainions.

When these came out I immediately had to have them. By far the most comfortable pair of glasses I own, with a near perfect fit to my head. The biggest downside is the large blindspot in your peripheral vision. The only other problem I have with them is that since mine are Gen1 the forehead padding that came with them sucks. The Gen2 padding was built in as opposed to stick on, and after several years the stick on is starting to peel off. Aside from that, I love the shock effect these have.

Once again, Overthetop could be construed as the most innovative design ever conceived by any eyewear company. This particular rendition features "Emerald Iridium", which provides excellent contrast and is versitle enough to wear both in medium and bright light conditions.
TERRORISM -
Frame: FMJ+
Lens: Black Iridium

I've got to give credit where credit is due: Overthetop is the culmination of Mad Science and rougue engineering that only Oakley could design. Utilizing a never-before-seen frame which wraps around the top of the head, Overthetop is aptly named and unique in its own right. The frame is encased in a "full metal jacket" (FMJ) for added strength, and the Black Iridium provides excellent protection for bright conditions. Surprisingly enough, the glasses are very comfortable due to a set of soft pads placed on the inside of the frame. Unfortunately, this is probably the last we'll ever see of anything this unique now that "The evil L" has taken over. I'm only giving this four stars because the lens shape seems very uninspired as a "circle". Overall, however, this is quite possibly the most unique pair of glasses ever developed by any company.

I broke down and picked this up. I tried it on again and it felt awesome. The fit is awesome and the looks is sweet. The eye coverage is ok. I wouldn't want to drive with these b/c there is some blockage. Other than that, must have for a collector.

The name says it all. They are definately a bizzare pair of sunglasses. However, if you have the right head for them then you'll be pleased. They fit a little snug on me, so I can't wear them for more than a couple hours at a time without my head begining to feel a little compressed.
Still, it's a pair that can really get you a lot of attention, and the looks from people as they pass you by are just priceless.

What can be said that hasn't already. The orbitals actually struck me smaller than I would have thought seeing them on members here and in photos, but as with any and all circular O styles the illusion is just that. Mars, Moons, when worn they just make my eyes look so close and smaller than a wrapped frame that sweeps around the face. Not enough to not enjoy these however. They do do fit well from base of the skull to my brow (medium head) and there is actually little to no pressure on my nose or cheeks as it rest on my brow pretty well. Maybe that will change if I wear them for an extended time. For anyone who wants a pair and is in doubt, I say just go for it and enjoy having them in your collection.

Picked these up for a sweet price on ebay and boy am I glad I did. They are in mint condition and came with the elastic microbag, but no box :-( Oh well, hopefully I'll pick up a box when I get the Matte Black/Ruby pair. Well, first thing I noticed when I got these is how small they seemed. I expected them to be a lot bigger, especially the lenses. Just from all the pictures I'd seen of them, I expected them to be huge. Not so. I really need to get my hair cut short or shave my head to really enjoy these as they seem to move around a bit with my longish hair. The fit is excellent for my head and the browpads seem to anchor them pretty well to my noggin. The lenses provide good coverage with little to no light coming in from the sides. I can't wait to wear these in the summer and really freak some people out! I'll let you know how that goes.

Amazing piece of wearable art. I just got a pair, 5 years after they were discontinued. Definitely a collectors piece and a great example of Oakley's commitment to pushing the envelope. The glasses fit over the head well, but the lenses don't fit exactly right for me. Being asian and having a flatter nose and high cheek bones, the fit is just not exact. No worries though. This is definitely a collectors piece and not a daily wear piece. Get one if you can!

Just got a pair of these two days ago. Paid a fair bit to get my hands on these, since they're out of commision, and as soon as I saw the ice colour up for sale, I bought them.

I'm not a sunglasses guy, never worn them, but these ones fit my personality perfectly: incredibly deranged and unnecessary. They fit perfecly on me, and are surprisingly comfortable. The frame is quite lenient and also fit niceley on a few other people I showed them to, and if you don't have a peanut-shaped head, they'll look good on anyone. From inside, you can see everything but the glare from the sunlight and your blind spot, so it's okay to drive in, but you gotta look way over your shoulder if you want to change lanes safely.

I was under the impression that the Emerald Lens version was a Sunglass Hut exclusive, since it came out at the same time as the rest of the SGH Emerald Iridium exclusives. Anyway, these do not fit my head. I have an earlier, non-padded version. I have a prominent brow, so they tend to ride my eyebrows. They also seem to shift around a lot. They're cool to have in the collection, and they offer bragging rights, but I can't see these as having any real functionality...

I feel like I'm one important step closer to being an absolute Oakley fanatic after getting ahold of my first OTTs. I got them for a steal $125 BNIB from some guy in Georgia. In a somewhat spontaneous act of absurdity I even shaved my head into a mohawk just to wear them once and take pictures, I'll make sure to up load a pic to the gallery. They definitely fit better than I previously thought, although being bald and having and average or larger sized head helps. The lenses are an interesting topic alone. The sperhical design is fine for optics as well as coverage however some light enters through the peripherals and will vary on head shape/size. I own nearly every lense and for those who have yet to try emerald it's quite nice. The somewhat deep gray shade is very comfortable to look through even in bright light conditions which may be attributed to the reflective iridium coating. My only major criticism is the frame color FMJ+ always looks sort of fake to me and I will be looking forward to getting a matte black pair eventually. For anyone looking to aquire this truly over the top Oakley product its worth the search and the price tag.

The first pair I purchased where used and had been worn for quite some time by an individual with a large noggin like myself. This pair fit me like a glove yet the 'others' that have been purchased seem to be rather tight and touch my cheeks as I've heard others say. A thick beanie or knit hat seems to help keep some distance away from the fack and eye lashes, but I have had some difficulties with fogging as well. Maybe some Oakley anti-fog would take care of that. Have to give these all 5 due to the design. I think Jumpman73 is on to something here, could you imagine these with Oil Rig designed lens???
